Tekashi 6ix9ine was reportedly robbed and beaten in Brooklyn this morning before ending up at a nearby hospital.
The rapper’s baby’s mother is now speaking out about the unfortunate incident and is asking people to give her and Tekashi some privacy for the time being.
“I ask that everyone respect my privacy and give me and my family some time and not bombard me with questions,” she wrote in her Instagram Story. “I do appreciate the prayers and concerns.”
