Tekashi69’s lawyers have dropped the rainbow-haired snitch after he stopped talking to them and refused to pay his bills.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, Tekashi’s former lawyers at the law firm Reitler Kailas & Rosenblatt are officially out as his lawyers in the court battle over a New York shooting.
They told the court, “Unfortunately, the relationship between the Firm and Hernandez is irretrievably broken, and the Firm, therefore, cannot continue to represent Hernandez in the Action.”
The lawyers said Tekashi stopped communicating with them in December 2020 and they can’t help him anymore. At the time of the motion, the firm said they were owed $10,984 from Tekashi for services rendered.
“In addition, the Firm represents Hernandez in several unrelated actions and Hernandez has failed to pay the Firm’s fees and expenses in connection with those actions as well (the Firm anticipates making motions to withdraw in those actions). Hernandez has not made any payment to the Firm since September 2020, despite his obligation to pay on a monthly basis,” they informed the judge.
As a result, the judge granted the law firm’s motion and stayed the case for a couple of months. Tekashi has yet to have a new lawyer fill in.
Back in 2020, a woman using the pseudonym Jane Doe sued Tekashi (real name: Daniel Hernandez) for $150 million. She was an innocent victim of a June 2018 shooting that involved Tekashi’s entourage.
The woman was hanging out in an apartment complex in Brooklyn when gunshots started flying. In her suit, Doe says several members of the gang Nine Trey Bloods, who were behind Tekashis’s kidnapping, were in the area shooting a music video.
The rapper reportedly heard about the music video shoot and made his way down to the location. She believes Tekashi’s crew came down and started shooting up the Nine Trey Bloods set.
In the suit. Doe blames Tekashi for being hit with a stray bullet striking her foot during the incident. She claims to have also suffered injuries to her back and knee. Doe claims to have needed surgery and physical therapy for her injuries.
She also has to see a psychologist for her alleged emotional pain. The worst part is Doe says the injury ruined her chance of ever becoming a police officer in the future.
The alleged victim pointed out that Tekashi already apologized to her during one of his criminal cases. He offered to pay for her medical bills but apparently that didn’t pan out given the lawsuit.
At the time of the filing, Tekashi’s lawyer said, “It's suspicious that the plaintiff only sued Daniel Hernandez who was never identified as the shooter in her case. The plaintiff did not sue the persons involved in her shooting. To be clear, Daniel did not shoot her."
The case is ongoing.
As Radar previously reported, the rapper was hit with a separate lawsuit last week accusing him of defaming a Japanese tattoo artist.
