However, additional reports claim Tek isn’t released but relocated and possibly working with the feds.
Tekashi 6ix9ine has been transferred to a federal facility that is regularly used to house witnesses who cooperate with the feds … TMZ has learned. Sources connected to the new detention center tell TMZ … federal authorities facilitated the transfer Wednesday night. Our sources say 69 specifically asked to be in a unit away from the Crips and the Bloods. 69’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, would not comment on whether his client is trying to cut a deal in return for spilling the beans on others in his racketeering case … he would only tell TMZ the transfer was for “security reasons.” Lazzaro tells us 69 was getting threats from gang members at MDC.
