Tekashi 6ix9ine Hospitalized In Florida
According to early October 2020 reports, 6ix9ine was admitted to a Florida hospital after having a bad reaction to diet pills and caffeine. While details were scare, the motivation behind the pills was because Tek weighed over 200 pounds during his stint in prison and wanted a fast solution to shed the fat.
Tekashi told the Shade Room that his overdose was a result of pairing a cup of coffee with two Hydroxycut pills instead of the recommended daily dosage of one. The rapper also claimed that the combination of diet supplements and caffeine sped up his heart rate. Tekashi began to “sweat excessively” soon after his consumption. The New York native, who is currently on probation, also told the Shade Room that he was not using any drugs at the time of his overdose. Tekashi reportedly claims that he was using Hydroxycut pills because of his serious weight gain during his time in prison. (MSN)
