Just weeks after his girlfriend Rachel Wattley was arrested for punching Tekashi 6ix9ine during an argument at a Miami restaurant, the controversial artist was trending on social media Friday (September 23) after he was involved in a brawl at the Soho Palm Club in Dubai.
The “Trollz” rapper was reportedly involved in an altercation after allegedly attempting to assault a DJ for refusing to play his music. According to reports, 6ix9ine approached the unnamed DJ at the Soho Palm Club in the Palm Jumeirah district in Dubai, requesting to have his music played.
Video footage shows the altercation where Tekashi repeatedly throws punches at the deejay in the club as people try to break up the fight. Another man eventually steps in from behind 6ix9ine and appears to snatch the chain right off his neck, while he resists and tries to fight back. That’s when what appears to be the club’s security crew got involved to escort 6ix9ine out of the venue.
Following the incident, the DJ in question reportedly mocked the rapper’s request, telling the crowd: “‘We don’t like snitches. No way am I playing a snitch’s song.”
As for 6ix9ine, he responded on social media to the reports that he was beaten up.
“I understand there’s a 6ix9ine hate train. PRs working overtime spreading fake news. But this is current time right now. Stop spreading fake news. The DJ was talking shit on the mic and got handled. Stop fake news.”
Tekashi has already left Dubai.
