Tekashi 6ix9ine Driver Was an Informant After ICE Arrest


The Tekashi 6ix9ine trial continues to roll on and the latest developments reveal that the rapper’s personal driver was an FBI informant after an arrest by ICE.  Inner City Press‘ Matthew Russell Lee shared the news from the courtroom.

From the courts:

AUSA: Mr. Rivera, when you were released, did you start driving for Mr. Hernandez again?
A: Yes.
Q: As a confidential informant?
Judge Engelmayer to the jury: why don’t you stretch you legs while we’re taking a brief break.

A full look at the comments can be seen here.

Tekashi’s kidnapping was captured on camera.

The attorney for alleged kidnapper Anthony “Harv” Ellison claims the incident was staged.

“No robbery or kidnapping or assault happened,” Cannick said at Thurgood Marshall Courthouse on Friday, according to Complex. “It didn’t happen. He had an event that made it look like a robbery or kidnapping. They’re saying the car [where the kidnapping allegedly occurred] was wired by the government. We believe that’s going to be very helpful to the defense.

“[Tekashi] was about to drop an album. He trolls every time he’s about to drop another album. Gotta get your buzz up. That’s how you make money.”

While Ellison will have to see what comes from the kidnapping case, he learned that he was charged with a new crime relating to a slashing in October 2018 which was “related to a leadership dispute among members of Nine Trey.” The victim was reportedly slashed across the face.

Tekashi 6ix9ine pled guilty to nine charges after being arrested for federal RICO and firearms charges, including conspiracy to murder and armed robbery. He is due to be sentenced on January 24, 2020, and possibly faces a mandatory sentence of 47 years in prison. However, a plea deal shows that Tekashi could avoid jail time if he testifies against fellow gang members.

6ix9ine is currently cooperating with authorities in hope of reducing his sentence.
