Tekashi 6ix9ine Hospitalized With Broken Wrist: 'I Got Caught Lacking'


Ouch! Tekashi 6ix9ine had to be treated for a serious injury after he was “caught lacking,” though not in the way you think.

According to TMZ, the “TROLLZ” rapper was taken to the hospital Tuesday night (August 11) after he supposedly broke his wrist in a strange accident at home. As Tekashi explained, he was walking downstairs for a late-night snack at around 3 AM when he tripped and fell over his 1-year-old French bulldog, Poppy, and wounded himself trying to break his fall.

Per the outlet, Tekashi said, “his hand got caught in the stairway banister and he broke a bone in the back of his wrist.” He didn’t understand the seriousness of the injury until the pain persisted into the morning after, prompting him to see a doctor.

The “FEFE” star took to Instagram with a video that showed him wincing in pain as docs wrap a cast to his right arm and wrist. “I got caught lacking in these streets :/“ he quipped in the caption of the clip.

It also sounded like his girlfriend, Jade — who is reportedly expecting a child with Tekashi — was there to catch everything on video while providing emotional support for her man. TMZ reports the cast will be Tekashi’s new best friend for at least the next 3 to 5 weeks as while he recovers.

Tekashi's bizarre accident comes just weeks after he celebrated his release from house arrest by taking to the streets of New York for his "PUNANI" music video.
