Controversial artist 6ix9ine, also known as Daniel Hernandez, was arrested in the Dominican Republic earlier this week.

The news has sent shockwaves through his fanbase, leaving many concerned about his future.

6ix9ine’s legal representative has since taken to social media to assure fans that every possible step is being taken to secure the artist’s freedom.

In an Instagram post by @elgordoylaflaca, the lawyer wrote:

“We trust in God that the truth will prevail, that justice will be done, and Mr. Hernandez will obtain his freedom. We appreciate your concern, prayers, and good wishes 🙏🏽.”

The post further explained that 6ix9ine was taken into police custody at 6:52 PM, shortly after a 5 PM meeting with his ex-partner, Yailin.

The purpose of the meeting was to clarify any misinformation circulating in the public sphere.

The arrest comes on the heels of a tumultuous year for the “GOOBA” hitmaker.

2023 ended on a tough note for 6ix9ine and Yailin, with the couple confirming their split amid allegations of Yailin struggling with mental health issues.

In a heartfelt post in mid-December, 6ix9ine addressed the situation, stating:

“Yailin is not well, she needs help. Yailin was loved, she was cared for. I’m on probation, I would never lay my hands on a woman, I’m not here to create gossip. I’m here to clear my name and ask that this matter be dealt with responsibly.”

As the situation continues to unfold, 6ix9ine’s new mugshot has begun to surface on various blogs, further fueling the public’s curiosity and concern.

Fans and followers worldwide are hoping for a fair resolution and the return of their beloved artist to the music scene.
