TMZ is reporting that controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is currently hospitalized after being severely beaten at a South Florida gym.

His attorney, Lance Lazzaro, tells the media site that the “Gummo” rapper was using the sauna inside an LA Fitness Tuesday (Mar. 21) when he was approached by a group of men, who began to jump him without warning.

Footage of the attack has allegedly surfaced. You can view the alleged footage here.

Lazzaro says that 6ix9ine tried to fight them off, but there were simply too many of them. The rapper did not have security with him at the time.

Gym staff heard the altercation and notified the manager. Police and EMS were called and 6ix9ine was rushed to the emergency room. According to TMZ, he suffered injuries to his jaw, ribs, and back, along with several gashes and facial swelling.

Lazzaro says that he will be contacting the feds to make sure that his client gets proper protection. As you know, security has been a major issue since 6ix9ine was granted early release from prison, cooperating with the feds against several of his fellow Nine Trey Bloods gang members.

As of now, it is unclear if 6ix9ine’s cooperation was a direct motive for the attack. The investigation is ongoing.
