Just when people thought they were done hearing about 6ix9ine, the rainbow hair rapper is in the news once again. On Thursday (December 23), Complex reported that 6ix9ine is facing a lawsuit from a concert promoter who claims the rapper skipped out on a show.
According to the report, JJD Entertainment is filing a lawsuit against 6ix9ine after he was allegedly paid to make an appearance and perform at an event in Humble, Texas. The company owned by Jamie Dominguez, booked Tekashi 6ix9ine to take the stage for $75,000 but he flew in, collected the money and left.
The lawsuit says the contract had the rapper getting $45,000 upon signing the paperwork and $75,000 when he showed up to the venue. The company also reportedly paid $28,000 to put 6ix9ine on a private jet from Florida to Texas.

Things didn’t get better days before the show as Dominguez said 6ix9ine’s team tried to renegotiate the contract on several occasions. All in all, JJD Entertainment says they spent $178,649.70 on the event when the budget was only $178,000. They also paid more than $100,000 for the venue, concert producers, security and insurance.
6ix9ine spoke to TMZ about the concert and actually claimed he canceled because the promoter never paid him to perform. JJD Entertainment fired back at 6ix9ine saying he was lying and they will be seeking repayment for losses and suing the Brooklyn rapper for defamation.
“Shortly after Defendant, Daniel Hernandez, failed to perform in accordance with the agreement, he went on a livestream with DJ Akademiks where the Defendant, Daniel Hernandez stated that the contract price was $250,000.00, that he received a $45,000.00 deposit, and $70,000.00 in cash, knowing that those statements were false,” the court documents read. “On that livestream, Defendant, Daniel Hernandez, adamantly states that the only reason he left the concert site was because he did not get paid, knowing that statement was false.”
