6ix9ine is in more legal trouble.
A day after being sued by Fashion Nova, the rapper is now facing a $150 million lawsuit from the woman who was caught in the crossfires of his 2018 shooting.
The woman, who chose not to reveal her identity, claims that Tekashi is responsible for the stray bullet that struck her foot in July 2018 when she was in the courtyard of a Brooklyn apartment complex. According to TMZ, several members of Tekashi’s former crew, the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, were there filming a music video. After Tekashi heard they were there, she alleges that he ordered his crew to shoot up the place.
One bullet hit her left foot during the shooting and she also injured her knee and back as a result of her fall. She says the injuries required surgery, physical therapy, and treatment by a psychologist. She was also unable to continue her job at Century 21 and was forced to cancel her plans to attend the police academy.
She acknowledged that Tekashi apologized in open court and offered to pay her medical expenses, but that didn’t suffice. She is now seeking more than $150 million in damages.
“It’s suspicious that the plaintiff only sued Daniel Hernandez who was never identified as the shooter in her case,” Tekashi’s attorney, Dawn Florio, tells TMZ. “The plaintiff did not sue the persons involved in her shooting. To be clear, Daniel did not shoot her.”
This is the third lawsuit Tekashi has faced in the last month. Fashion Nova sued him for $2.25 million for failing to fulfill his contract and promote the brand. His former friend, Shane Hardy, is also suing him for allegedly ordering two Nine Trey Bloods members to shoot him.
Tekashi, who was originally facing 47 years to life on racketeering and firearms charges, is set to be released from prison on Aug. 2.
