Forget a reality TV show: This one was worthy of a whole documentary. Sara Molina, ex-girlfriend of New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, was featured in the Hulu doc 69: The Saga of Daniel Hernandez. She recently sat down to talk more about her relationship with the polarizing artist.
6ix9ine’s Ex Details Their History
Sara Molina and Tekashi 6ix9ine dated for about three years before she became pregnant with their daughter, Saraiyah. As their young family grew, 6ix9ine’s career blew up and he became one of the most popular and controversial rappers in the game. Sara talked about how she factored into his early success, essentially working as his personal assistant.
“I’m not gonna lie, I stopped worrying about myself because [I was] so far up after him and taking care of him,” she said. “His needs, what he wants to get done, I had to run and set up appointments, all these different things that you would think I’d put into myself, I actually put into him and helping him and supporting him so it’s just like, I did lose myself.” (HotNewHipHop)
Tekashi’s BM: ‘I don’t think he understood what he’d gotten himself into’
Sara Molina was there for Tekashi 6ix9ine’s highs, and also for the lows. She recounted when he was arrested (and later given probation) for filming a sex act with a minor and how he tried to navigate the situation.
“This was such a weird place in my life, for both of us, trying to understand what was going on,” Sara recalled while speaking about that case. “I don’t think he understood what he’d gotten himself into and for me, I just didn’t completely understand it at all.” Molina added that Hernandez wasn’t sharing “the full truth of it.” (HotNewHipHop)
Ex-Girlfriend Says 6ix9ine Isn’t Involved In Daughter’s Life
After the couple broke up and Tekashi went to prison, Sara says he dropped out of his daughter’s life. Other than seeing her right after he got of jail earlier this year, Sara says 6ix9ine — who is in a serious relationship with model Jade — hasn’t been involved with his little girl.
“It’s so frustrating at times. There’s times when I completely don’t care and I just feel like it’s his loss,” said Sara. “My daughter’s gonna get to the age, if this doesn’t get any better, if it continues the way it is, that she’s gonna ask questions. At this point, it’s not her finding out who she is. People are going to tell her who she is. They’re gonna tell her, ‘You’re 6ix9ine’s daughter.’… At what point in life am I gonna be at when I’m mentally ready to have this talk with my daughter and be open and honest with her about everything?” (HotNewHipHop)
Allegations Of Domestic Violence
Tekashi 6ix9ine has admitted that he “beat the s*** out Sara,” claiming it happened after he found out she’d cheated on him. Molina says there was violence in the relationship and “we were both fighting” in that particular incident. She suggested things were worse before Tekashi became a celebrity.
“What he did to me within his fame is nothing compared to what he did to me before he was famous. It was a lot that I really did deal with.” (HotNewHipHop)
