Before You Go
In March 2020, Tekashi’s legal team requested he get released from prison. The request came after coronavirus started to spread across the nation at a rapid pace.
6ix9ine’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, wrote a letter to the judge Sunday night citing serious concerns for Tekashi’s wellbeing behind bars. Lazzaro says Tekashi suffers from asthma — making catching coronavirus that much more serious — and he wants him out ASAP. In the letter — obtained by TMZ — Lazzaro also reveals Tekashi was diagnosed with bronchitis and sinusitis late last year and was hospitalized for treatment. (TMZ)
