The past few months for Bronx rebel Tekashi 6ix9ine have been aggressively brutal, to say the least, and that smoke won’t die down for quite a while. 6ix9ine, born Daniel Hernandez, pleaded guilty to nine federal counts including racketeering, aiding and abetting, conspiracy and drug trafficking. Despite this not being his first offense, him pleading guilty has many labeling him a “snitch” and could cause severe repercussions for his family and especially his young daughter.
In spite of this, Sara Molina, his daughter’s mother, had some heartbreaking allegations to get off her chest and went on record to speak about the physical and sexual abuse she suffered through during their seven-year relationship.
The former couple met in 2011 through mutual friends when she was just 16. Prior to him taking on his 6ix9ine persona, Hernandez was a high school dropout. His father was murdered in 2010 and he chose to work at a local Brooklyn deli. Molina began working there and things felt “perfect.” Not long after, he began to partake in “little side hustles,” which turned out to be drug deals. Molina started to notice his unrelenting demand for attention.
“If it wasn't about him, he wanted it about him,” she stated. She supported him emotionally and financially as he began to mold Daniel Hernandez into Tekashi 6in9ine. After the video of him performing a sexual act with a child was revealed, he reportedly stated, “all publicity is good publicity,” except domestic violence. One night after she’d give birth, Molina says he assaulted her to the point where an incident occurred which, “left the child crying and her too battered to go home.” Another night, she was in their shared home when he strolled in at 5 a.m. after being caught with a stripper on video. After being questioned about it, she said, “he was very aggressive and didn't want to talk about it. He dragged me by my hair and slapped me in my face, which caused the black eye.”
The 23-year-old single mother detailed abuse she suffered while in Dubai, without their daughter. “He punches me out of nowhere,” she stated. “I was leaking blood [onto] the hotel pillow cases.” The Dummy Boy rapper apologized, but went through her phone later that night and accused her of having an affair.
He apparently thought he would gain a confession by disclosing his own infidelity, claiming he slept with “more than 70 other women in the past year, resulting in multiple pregnancies and had acquired multiple STDs.” Not admitting to anything, he proceeded to attack for two unimaginable hours.
"He seemed suddenly stronger, more ferocious, more determined not just to hurt but to injure than during the previous beatings. He had the craziest look in his eyes. I was scared. ‘Why is he acting this way?’ I had never seen him like that. He punched me so hard in my right ear I thought I was deaf," Molina reflected. 6ix9ine used a pillow to stifle her screaming.
His reasoning for the alleged assault? "I just have to make an example. I can’t have you out there, making me look stupid,” he said. Too deprived, Molina laid there and woke up the next morning and "forced [her] to have sex with him." Aside from being broken emotionally, she sustained two black eyes, which she could barely open and was covered in bruises. She never reported the abuse to avoid public scrutiny. After the shooting on the set of his music video with Nicki Minaj and Kanye West, 6ix9ine attacked her again and she "was done with him."
Molina has admitted that she's received death threats since he's been incarcerated. The rapper is currently in custody at an undisclosed location, is facing a minimum of 47 years in prison and is reportedly due for sentencing on January 24, 2020.
