After a scuffle in Miami on August 28th, rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine’s girlfriend Rachel Wattley, also known as Jade, was taken into custody.
According to TMZ, she was detained at the Miami-Dade County Jail on a battery charge linked to domestic abuse and is being held on $1,500 bail.
The rapper has reportedly been attempting to save her, according to the outlet.
Uncertainty surrounds what transpired, however video posted online depicted Tekashi tussling with Jade and a group of ladies outside a club.
One of the women allegedly attempted to swing on the rapper at one point.
After being surrounded, Tekashi fled to a luxury vehicle, and it was said that this is when the police finally arrived to disperse the crowd and investigate what was going on.
While being led outside, Tekashi and Jade apparently got into a verbal altercation as well.
The rapper reportedly claimed Jade hit him when the police inquired about what transpired. They also admitted that they noticed marks on him.
Officers were also informed by witnesses that Jade hit 69 inside and even tried to take his chain.
Even though police claimed to have seen Tekashi with obvious facial injuries, they also claimed that he ultimately refused to cooperate in any way.
Speaking to TMZ, Tekashi claimed that Jade, his girlfriend of four years, attacked him for an undisclosed reason, and he believes that she was influenced by her friends.
He added that he believed she was intoxicated.
Adds Tekashi: “I’m going to get her out of jail since she assaulted me in front of the police, and I told them to assess her because I don’t want to file any charges. I’m the one attempting to save her.”
