Just when you thought the life of Tekashi 6ix9ine couldn’t be more interesting, he finds a way to keep us entertained. 6ix9ine is widely known for his popular antics on social media and lately have been staying under the radar. However, it was reported that as of late, promoters paid for a private jet ride to his venue and when he arrived, he was given 75k and he left before performing.
According to the sources, Tekashi was set to perform at the Humble Civic Center in Houston back in June. A lawsuit made by promotion company JJD Entertainment claims they filed a lawsuit stating 6ix9ine showed up, took the cash, and left before performing.
Operator of JJD Entertainment, Jamie Dominquez, reportedly spoke with one of 6ix9ine’s reps, Will Cornish. She stated “The deal had Tekashi being paid $45k upon execution of the paperwork and another $75k in cash on the day of the event. He was also to be paid $20k for a jet from Boca Roton to Texas.
In the suit, the promoter says he paid Tekashi the $45k and booked the private jet at a cost of $28k. He says the rapper’s team kept renegotiating the deal which ended up costing him an additional $100k.
The team and promoters allegedly were all able to come to an agreement, in which the private jet flew the rapper from Florida to Houston on June 27.
He reportedly made it to the venue, was paid $75K cash, and dipped out before taking to the stage. The promoters were upset and claimed they "spent $178K as well as over $100K for the venue rental, security and insurance."
Tekashi reportedly claimed he wasn’t paid adequately and was expecting to receive 250k to perform which is why he didn’t. The rapper is also being sued for defamation.
