This week, 6ix9ine shocked the world after pulling the plug on his popular Instagram and Twitter pages. However, the rap entertainer has credited his upcoming release from house arrest as the motivation for fading to digital black.
6ix9ine tells TMZ … he just temporarily deactivated his Instagram account ahead of his home confinement ending around August 1. The reason? He says his lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, recommended it for the rapper’s safety, so he’s following through. Tekashi says as freedom nears, his legal team thinks he might mistakenly leak some crucial info about his whereabouts, meaning where he is now or where he’ll be next … once he’s cut loose. We’re told Tekashi’s team hasn’t quite decided on that yet, but out of an abundance of caution they’re advising he go dark for a while as they figure out that next move. (TMZ)
