A new lawsuit alleges that controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine hit a woman with a champagne bottle at a Florida strip club. The Brooklyn native may have to hand over some of his millions to the victim.
TMZ reported that Alexis Salaberrios, a dancer, filed the aggravated battery lawsuit after the alleged incident at Gold Rush Cabaret in Miami on February 20.
Salaberrios claims that 6ix9ine threw a “deadly object with intent to commit serious bodily injury.” The incident sparked after someone in the cabaret called Tekashi, born Daniel Hernandez, a rat. The rapper reportedly threw a champagne bottle in retaliation, but missed his target and hit Salaberrios instead. A photo provided to TMZ appears to show the top of the victim’s head, where she seems to have an oozing gash and hair caked with blood.
Her attorney, David M. Tarlow, told TMZ that she was then taken to a local emergency room where she received treatment for a “significant head injury.”

Salaberrios has also filed a lawsuit against Gold Rush Cabaret for gross negligence and accused it of not having proper security.
Lance Lazzaro, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s attorney, denied the 24-year-old rapper was involved.
There are video cameras in the establishment. It’s an attempt to shake him down. If he is served properly, we will immediately move to have it dismissed.Lance Lazzaro
