Flo Rida’s 6 Year Old Son In ICU After Falling From A Five Storey Building

The mother of rapper Flo Rida’s son has filed a lawsuit after their 6-year-old son was seriously injured in a fall from a fifth-floor apartment window.

 

Alexis Adams claims that the Jersey City building was equipped with “windows that posed a hazardous condition.” Adams says these windows allowed her son to fall onto concrete pavement three weeks ago, leaving him with serious injuries.

 

“As a single mom to a special needs child, this feels like a nightmare. My heart is broken into a million pieces. I am devastated, angry and struggling to come to terms with the fact that my only child has suffered severe injuries due to willful negligence of our landlord and others involved in failing to take necessary safety measures,” Adams wrote in a statement.

She says that repeated requests to have window guards were ignored.

It comes with a sense of responsibility that is bestowed upon me as an artist to continue to do great work. I will do my best to be a proud recipient of the Prize through my work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, on behalf of the children, and as an ambassador of music, to help create a world in which we can all live in peace. Thank you so much for making me part of this prestigious Prize, in such a prestigious company.”

6ix9ine Hospitalized After Reportedly Being Attacked By Multiple Men In Florida Gym

American artist Tekashi 6ix9ine has been hospitalized following an ambush by a group of attackers in the bathroom of a gym in South Florida on Tuesday.

The rapper sustained injuries to his face and bruises, according to his attorney, Lance Lazzaro.

Lazzaro said the rapper was attacked in and outside the LA Fitness gym sauna by three or four men who beat him up, though he tried fighting back. “He had cuts to his face and bruises,” Lazzaro said. The attorney said that the perpetrators fled after employees heard the disturbance.

Police in South Florida were called, and Hernandez was transported via ambulance to a local hospital, according to Lazzaro. It is unclear if the rapper remains hospitalized.

Hernandez was arrested and sentenced to two years in prison in 2019 on nine charges, including racketeering, drug trafficking and firearm offences in relation to his involvement with the Nine Trey Bloods gang. Hernandez received a shortened prison sentence after he cooperated with federal officials to imprison his associates. He was released early due to COVID-19 concerns after a judge called the rapper a “model prisoner.”

In a video leaked on Twitter, one of Hernandez’s assailants is heard saying, “Take a picture. I’m gonna be famous now.” Another video captured a bloodied Hernandez walking out of the gym.

According to several media reports, Hernandez was ejected from a Miami baseball stadium Friday for being intoxicated and disturbing fans.
