Tekashi 6ix9ine sued over 2015 sexual video of a minor

The rapper is being sued for unspecified damages under the Child Victims Act.

Tekashi 6ix9ine has been sued by a woman who appeared in a sexually explicit video he uploaded to social media in 2015.

According to The Blast, the victim, who is identified in the lawsuit simply as Jane Doe, claimed she was only 13 years old when the video was taken. In the lawsuit, she also alleged that the rapper—real name Daniel Hernandez—and fellow emcee Taquan “Tay Milly” Anderson had given her alcohol and drugs. Hernandez was 18 years old at the time.

The filing also stated that Hernandez and Anderson recorded the victim three different times. “By reason of her age, and being given drugs and alcohol which caused her to be in an impaired mental state without her knowledge, permission or consent, the plaintiff was incapable of consenting to the recording of Video #1, Video #2 and/or Video #3,” the suit said.

The victim claims the incident brought her “humiliation, mental anguish and emotional distress.” She is suing the rapper for unspecified damages under the Child Victims Act.

Hernandez pleaded guilty to one count of using a child in a sexual performance in relation to the incident in 2015. He avoided jail time on the condition that he served 1,000 hours of community service. However, during his probation, the rapper was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer in 2018, according to PageSix.

A rep for Hernandez has yet to release a statement, while Anderson could not be reached immediately for comment, PageSix reported.
