The ex-girlfriend of Tekashi 6ix9ine has spoken out against the domestic abuse she endured during their relationship. Speaking to the Daily Beast, Sara Molina outlined the repeated occasions in which she alleges she was physically assaulted by 6ix9ine, real name Danny Hernandez. The article includes graphic photos Molina took of herself after the alleged attacks.

Molina detailed three instances in which she says she was beaten by Hernandez. The first attack, which allegedly lasted “for two hours straight,” occurred during a trip to Dubai in October, where the rapper was performing at a concert. “He punches me out of nowhere,” Molina said, later adding, “I was leaking blood.” She said the assault took place because Hernandez was suspicious of her interactions with his manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan, which she denied being anything more than friendly.  The next morning, Molina claims the rapper “forced [her] to have sex with him.”

Another incident allegedly took place in April 2018, where Hernandez is said to have beaten Molina while the couple’s child was present. The attack, which left Molina with “a battered face,” was instigated by Molina discussing another woman who claimed to be pregnant with Hernandez’s child.

Molina claims that a third attack occurred in November shortly after the rapper’s music video shoot with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj was abruptly cancelled due to a drive-by shooting.

In the article, Molina said she did not report the events to police in either Dubai or New York. Hernandez has not been charged with domestic assault, but last week pled guilty to 9 criminal charges.
