Tekashi 6ix9ine who is currently behind bars is being accused of faking his own kidnapping for clout.
According to reports, defense attorney for one of the men accused of participating in the July 2018 abduction and robbery says it was orchestrated by the rapper himself for album promo.
“No robbery or kidnapping or assault happened,” says Devereaux Cannick, who works as an attorney for Tekashi’s alleged kidnapper Anthony “Harv” Ellison. “He was about to drop another album…gotta get that buzz up. That’s how he makes money.”
Ellison, known as “Harv” among the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, is accused of the crime. Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack are the only two men in Tekashi’s federal racketeering case that have pleaded not guilty, and they will both go to trial for the case on Sept. 16. Recently filed court documents suggest that 6ix9ine will testify against them.
Connick also claims that the car used to kidnap 6ix9ine was wired by the government ahead of time, which would mean the whole encounter was recorded.
