AceShowbiz - 6ix9ine faced new legal troubles. The "FEFE" rapper reportedly was hit with two lawsuits that accuse him of failing to perform concerts which he was paid for and making false statements to the media trashing the organizers.
In the recent filings, both plaintiffs, Hits Before Fame LLC and After Hours LLC, claimed that the New York artist failed to respond to their suits months after he was served with the claims. They request a judge to find the star in default and grant judgements in their favour.
The two entertainment companies are seeking a total of $5.3M from the recording artist, his former manager Shotti, and various booking companies/employees associated with the deal in one of the suits.
Also filing suit against 6ix9ine were promoters Jaime Dominguez and JJD Entertainment. They claimed they paid 6ix9ine upwards of $170K for a concert that never happened. The Bushwick-born entertainer, however, previously told TMZ that they were the ones who welched on their obligations to him.
Back in April, the emcee, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was also sued by Streamusic for allegedly skipping concerts. In the $2 million lawsuit, the streaming service claimed that the Brooklyn-based rapper skipped two Los Angeles concerts in December last year that the streaming app was going to air live.
The streaming app said that after receiving the money, 6ix9ine allegedly ghosted Streamusic. Later in January, Streamusic and the rapper finally got in touch. They finalized a new agreement and rescheduled his performances only for 6ix9ine to go silent in the lead up to that date again, ignoring seven more requests.
Meanwhile, 6ix9ine continued flexing on social media despite claiming to have financial issues. On Monday, July 11, he bragged about making $500K at his sold-out concert in Istanbul, Turkey.
"THE BEST IN THE WORLD," he wrote in the caption. "You can't stop what GOD has planned for someone... All around the world I'm loved and known in every part. You guys need festivals to have big stages, only known in America. It needs to be 20 artists performing for people to show up. Don't @ me, argue with [yourself]."
