Tekashi 6ix9ine is being sued by a security company that formerly provided personal protection to the controversial rapper.
A lawsuit filed on Mondays revealed details that the security company that duly protected 69 in 2018, prior to getting arrested, have not been paid services owed by the rapper. Tekashi is best known for rap and also for his recent court case in which he is accused of famously snitching on various other rappers in the industry, squealing on others as part of a plea deal for lesser time.
The Company Metropolitan Patrol says they are owed monies for 11 days of service in 2018. According to TMZ, the timeline by the company coincide with paparazzi photos taken of 6ix9ine in Los Angeles surrounded by bodyguards who are almost twice the size of the bite-sized rapper.
The contract, according to the security company, is for 24-hour armed security and has a roster of detailed activities they worked at a day rate of $85 per hour and a nightly rate of $127.50 per hour. Among the package of services offered at armored vehicles- fully equipped Yukon with ballistic panels and police-style vehicles that included sirens and other equipment prepared for pretty much any scenario which can arise due to the rapper’s continuous beef and contentious personality.
The total owed to the company is $75,165, which Tekashi 6ix9ine has refused to pay. The company is seeking the amount in damages as well as interest and legal fees, which rounds off to $88,000.
Meanwhile, Tekashi’s Attorney-at-law Lance Lazzaro says that the rapper has nothing to do with the security company. In fact that his booking agency at the time is the one responsible for the outstanding payments, and that Metropolitan’s beef is actually with MTA Bookings, not 69.
Since coming out of jail, the rapper has been mired in controversy, including his latest gimmick, which included an alleged attempt, according to Meek Mill, to bait him into a fight in order to cause Mill to be sent to jail. Meek has said Tekashi 6ix9ine is working for federal authorities and that he was trying to get him into a fight so that he could be arrested and sent to jail. Meek Mill is no longer under probation but having spent a good chunk of his adulthood under court supervision, he intends to remain off the radar and vows never to go back to jail. His last case last 12 years.
