Tekashi 6ix9ine sued by Fashion Nova for $2.25M
Tekashi 6ix9ine is far from done with his legal problems.
The rapper, 23, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, is being sued by Fashion Nova for $2.25 million after failing to fulfill his social media contract.
According to TMZ, Hernandez was paid an advance of $225,000 in October 2018 to promote the brand on his social media pages and through his music.
However, he was arrested and jailed two weeks later and thus unable to fulfill his duties. Hernandez allegedly never returned the money.
Fashion Nova’s lawsuit is just one of many issues the Nine Trey Gansta Bloods gang member will need to address when he is released early in August.
The “Stoopid” singer was facing charges for racketeering and more, with a penalty of decades in prison before flipping on his former crew and turning government witness, which led to a sentence of just two years.
Hernandez also faces a $150 million lawsuit from a woman, who filed under Jane Doe, who claims his order for a revenge shooting on the gang members who kidnapped him caused a stray bullet to hit her foot, leading to the loss of her retail job.
He is currently seeking to be released early from prison to home confinement due to asthma, bronchitis and sinusitis that put him at risk for coronavirus.
