Tekashi 6ix9ine Worried About Family’s Safety If He Testifies Against Alleged Kidnapper

August 21, 2019 | Posted by Ashish

TMZ reports that with Tekashi 6ix9ine set to testify in open court next month against his alleged kidnappers, he is worried that his family members could become targets of gang retaliation.

Tekashi claims he was kidnapped and assaulted in 2018, but one of the suspects arrested in the case, Anthony Ellison, is a former member of Tekashi’s management team and claims Tekashi is making the story up. Ellison is also believed to be a former member of the Nine Trey Bloods gang, which Tekashi is believed to have been a member of in the past as well.

Tekashi believes that testifying against Ellison could not only make his family members targets, it could also make him a target behind bars. Tekashi has already spent thousands of dollars on security for his mother.

He is required to cooperate with federal authorities, and they want him to testify, so it doesn’t appear as if he will be able to get out of this unless some kind of deal between Ellison and prosecutors is reached that wouldn’t require Tekashi’s testimony.
