Tekashi 6ix9ine has been ordered by a judge to pay two victims of a 2018 robbery perpetrated by Nine Trey Gangster Blood members.
According to court documents obtained by AllHipHop, U.S. Magistrate Judge Jennifer E. Willis signed off on Seketha Wonzer and Kevin Dozier receiving at least $30,000 in damages from the robbery. Wonzer and Dozier won a default judgment after suing 6ix9ine for his involvement.
“This Court respectfully recommends the following: Wonzer is awarded $15,000 in compensatory damages without leave to amend for her Medicare lien and $15,000 in punitive damages; and Dozier is awarded $30,000 in compensatory damages without leave to amend for his Medicaid lien, $30,000 in punitive damages, and $7,500 in treble damages under RICO,” Judge Willis wrote.
Wonzer and Dozier wanted more money, citing mental health issues and injuries, but Judge Willis wouldn’t give it to them due to a lack of evidence in the case. Judge Willis also said 6ix9ine’s involvement in the robbery wasn’t as severe as initially thought.
The plaintiffs were collectively robbed of a backpack that contained six hard drives with “12 years of client information,” shoes, a camera, $1500 in cash and a gold chain, while 6ix9ine filmed the ordeal from a nearby SUV and later posted it on social media.
“[6ix9ine] pled guilty to committing the robbery, which both Plaintiffs allege caused them mental harm and Dozier alleges also caused economic harm,” Judge Willis wrote. “Robbing Plaintiffs certainly evinced an indifference or reckless disregard to Plaintiffs’ health and safety and resulted from more than a mere accident. However, the robbery was an isolated incident as to Plaintiffs in which Defendant was not physically involved.”
The judge continued, “There is also no evidence in the record to support Plaintiffs’ claim that ‘Defendant caused Plaintiffs to be violently robbed at gunpoint by dangerous gang members.’ Defendant was outside the building where the robbery took place in a car videotaping the incident. The record does not indicate Defendant uploaded the video of the robbery to social media, and there is no evidence Defendant took the items seized during the robbery for himself.”
The Brooklyn rapper, Wonzer and Dozier have two weeks to file objections, while the plaintiffs get 30 days to file a motion for attorneys’ fees once the order for damages is entered. Tekashi has yet to respond to the court order.
The bill should be no issue for the controversial “GUMMO” rapper who said he got $500,000 last month for a 40-minute performance in Turkey. 6ix9ine shared videos of himself jumping into the 15,000-strong crowd that was chanting his name.
“THE BEST IN THE WORLD,” he wrote. “You can’t stop what GOD has planned for someone. 15,000 sold out show Istanbul Turkey. 500,000$ for 40 minutes. All around the world I’m loved and known in every part.
He continued: “You guys need festivals to have big stages, only known in America. It needs to be 20 artist performing for people to show up. Don’t @ me argue with ur self.”
