Tekashi 6ix9ine is one of the most controversial artists on the hip-hop scene today. Not just because of his music or persona, but more so because of his personal life.
6ix9ine recently made headlines after getting arrested for allegedly choking a 16-year-old in a mall. This wasn’t his first time he found himself in trouble with the law, either. The rapper has also faced multiple accusations of sleeping with underage women.
Unfortunately, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s legal troubles are no longer just affecting him, but also his family. In July 2018, 6ix9ine was the victim of a brutal robbery that landed him in the hospital. While stories vary on what exactly happened, TMZ first reported that three men kidnapped the rapper and “told him they would kill him” if he didn’t hand over money and his jewelry.
According to TMZ, the men drove 6ix9ine to his house where his daughter and her mother were inside, though neither were hurt.
Though the rapper has shared photos of his daughter on Instagram, her mother’s identity is a little more secretive. Who is 6ix9ine’s baby mama? Here’s what we know about his on-and-off girlfriend Sara.
1. Their daughter’s name is Saraiyah
Sara is reportedly collaborating with Tata Lashes, who promoted a new false eyelash design named after 6ix9ine and Sara’s daughter. Sara reposted photos explaining the meaning behind their daughter’s name, which is Hebrew and is believed to mean “Princess of the Lord.”
2. She's not interested in the fame
Not all women who date famous men are looking to share the spotlight, and Sara is one of them. The two started dating before 6ix9ine gained such widespread fame. She keeps a fairly low profile and doesn’t share photos of 6ix9ine on her Instagram page just as he doesn’t share photos of her.
In an Instagram live video, Sara said that she’s not a “clout chaser,” and would be with the rapper whether he was famous or not. She also explained that she wishes 6ix9ine’s actions didn’t affect her. "His fame should not have to affect me in a negative light or negatively,” she said to her followers.
3. The infamous Celina Powell has strained Sara’s relationship with 6ix9ine
Celina Powell is infamous in the hip hop world for latching onto artists. She’s claimed to have affairs with Snoop Dogg, Offset, and even Aaron Carter, just to name a few. Apparently, 6ix9ine also found himself on Powell’s list — and it did not go unnoticed by 6ix9ine’s baby mama.
According to Hot New Hip Hop, DJ Akademiks allegedly posted a photo of 6ix9ine FaceTiming with Powell. 6ix9ine commented on the photo, writing that Powell was “bout to catch this D.” Sara responded by going after Akademiks for reportedly facilitating the meeting. In March 2018 Sara went live on Instagram to address what happened, calling Akademiks out for treating her and 6ix9ine poorly.
4. She was there when he was robbed
After his robbery, Tekashi 6ix9ine told police that after he was kidnapped, the armed men took him to his home and had him call Sara to bring his jewelry out to the car. According to a source who claimed to be close to Sara, the experience was horrifying. “Last night was a real wake up call, and the fact that it happened right on her doorstep, with their child sleeping inside really scared her,” the source told Hollywood Life. “Sara is truly terrified that something terrible is going to happen to Daniel.”
Sara addressed the incident herself on Instagram. “I ask that everyone respect my privacy and give me and my family some time and now bombard me with questions,” she wrote on her Instagram story. “I do appreciate the prayers and concerns.”
5. Did Tekashi 6ix9ine cheat on her?
Apparently, 6ix9ine’s affairs with other women aren’t subtle. He’s been caught flaunting girls wear his infamous chain on Instagram, and is alleged to have multiple side chicks. In an Instagram live, Sara claimed that 6ix9ine has always been this way, saying that fame didn’t change him but it did make her aware of his cheating ways.
While Sara said she doesn’t like addressing 6ixine about it publicly, she admitted she has no problem coming at the side chicks if they say something to her. “I’m petty queen,” Sara said.
6. Are they together?
Since Sara is so private and 6ix9ine is painfully obvious about spending time with other women, fans constantly question whether or not they’re still together. However, Sara prefers keeping that information to herself. “I don’t address no situations head on and give clear answers and I keep y’all [sic] twisted,” she said in an Instagram live.”Because that’s my personal life.”
However, Sara did say that 6ix9ine is protective of her, and will get jealous if she posts certain things on social media. She also suggested that their relationship is on-and-off. “Me and him going at it all day until I just leave him, and that’s when he [sic] suffers.”
7. She’s fiercely loyal
Throughout her Instagram lives and comments, Sara constantly defends Tekashi (who she calls by his real name, Danny), their relationship and their right to keep their relationship as private as possible. That said, she’s not afraid to call him out — she just doesn’t do it publicly. “I’m not gonna sit here and put the blame on anybody but him,” she said on Instagram. But that doesn’t mean she just lets everything go. “Just because I’m not publicly coming at him doesn’t mean I’m not coming at him.”
