Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is heading back to court again — but this time, it’s over the custody of his daughter.
He’s hoping to reunite with 4-year-old Saraiyah once he gets his ankle bracelet off, whether his baby mama likes it or not.
Tekashi’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, says that his client is determined to be part of his daughter’s life. That is, in a couple of weeks, when he’s released from home confinement.
Lazzaro says that the simplest way to make that happen is to involve a judge. They want a court-ordered custody arrangement.
According to Lazzaro, the rapper wants to be there for his kid. He says the only reason he hasn’t been since getting out of prison was for her safety — with the coronavirus pandemic going on and all.
Of course, baby mama Sara Molina’s side of the story sounds a little different.
Sara says that if 6ix9ine really wanted a relationship with his kid, there are plenty of ways to do it… but he still hasn’t to this day.
Still, she has plenty of concerns over her daughter spending time with Tekashi. She has noticed that there are glaring safety issues that need addressing before any father-child reunion.
For starters, the rapper clearly has a target hanging over his head after all that snitching. She’s worried about putting a small child in that dangerous situation, and wants to be sure a secure environment can be established.
Sara is also hoping for Tekashi to undergo a psychiatric evaluation to demonstrate that he’s not the same as he was in his Nine Trey Blood days.
So what it sounds like, is Sara gave her ex a checklist, and he’s just hoping to use his lawyer to go over her head.
It’s unclear how this will play out in court. Especially with 6ix9ine’s laundry list of questionable — and downright dangerous — actions in the past.
The rapper was charged with 9 felonies stemming from his time in the Nine Trey Blood gang. They included racketeering, firearms, and drug trafficking charges. These were in connection with several shootings and assaults around New York City.
He also pled guilty to one count of using a child in a sexual performance back when he was 18.
