Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was able to send his beau Jade a lavish birthday present of a 41mm Rolex, customized with an 18K white and rose gold along with 24 carats of VS diamonds
Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, has gifted his model glamor girlfriend a Rolex, estimated to cost around $35,000, from prison. The rapper is currently in prison and faces charges of racketeering, conspiracy murder, assault, drugs, robbery, and firearms.
Despite being in jail, the 22-year-old was able to gift his girlfriend Jade a diamond-studded watch as a birthday present. Tekashi's bae celebrated her 22nd birthday in New York City on Tuesday. Since he was unable to be there, the rapper sent a 41mm Rolex, reportedly customized with an 18K white and rose gold along with 24 carats of VS diamonds.
The gift was hand delivered to the birthday girl by celebrity jeweler and Tekashi supporter JimmyBoi. She took to social media to post a thank you message for her boyfriend who is currently facing 25 years to life. Jade shared a picture of herself with the expensive gift and said, "Thank you baby :) your the best even when your not around (sic) ." She also shared a picture of her and Tekashi along with the caption, "Minor set back for a MAJOR come back."
On Monday morning, the rapper pleaded not guilty to federal racketeering and firearms charges. He has not been cleared in the racketeering case and is still facing an additional six counts and a prison sentence of 25 to life for his alleged participation in many acts such as murder, robbery, extortion, and distribution of controlled substances. A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for January 22 while the trial has been scheduled for September.
Tekashi pleaded guilty to one felony count of using a minor in a sexual performance in 2015. According to Vulture, in October, Tekashi was handed a four-year probation sentence and also pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for another assault charge on an NY police officer.
He is presently being housed with neutral inmates at a federal facility. He was discharged from the Metropolitan Detention Center on Wednesday. His exit happened after a grand jury indicted him and five others of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods on racketeering charges. The indictment alleges that the violent incidents involving Tekashi included the July shooting of a bystander in Brooklyn and the gunpoint robbery of one of the gang's rivals last spring. Tekashi did not have any transfer facility listed.
Defense attorney Lance Lazzaro released a statement that his client was "completely innocent of all charges." "An entertainer who portrays a 'gangster image' to promote his music does not make him a member of an enterprise. Mr. Hernandez became a victim of this enterprise and later took steps by firing employees and publicly denounced this enterprise through a morning show. Threats were then made against his life which resulted in this case being brought immediately."
