Tekashi69, aka 6ix9ine, has been dealing with rumors of him being a child sex predator and now it turns out there is some truth to it.
The colorful rapper is now facing years in prison after pleading guilty to three felony child sex charges. According to a recent report from Genius, Tekashi69, real name, Daniel Hernandez, took a plea deal for “three felony counts of Use of a Child in a Sexual Performance.” Hernandez was 18 at the time of the incident, but the victim’s age was not specified except to say that she was underage. There are some rumors that she was 13 at the time.
Back in August of this year, a PR rep for Tekashi69 released a statement denying the charges laid out against him. “[Tekashi69] doesn’t even like to say the R word [rape], we don’t play around with that sh*t,” the statement reads. “As someone with a 3-year-old daughter we take this very seriously… Their whole thing was to try to slander his name and make him look terrible.”
The crime can be punishable by up to 15 years in New York, but since he took a deal it could be considerably less.
