Tekashi 6ix9ine has reportedly been hospitalised after accidentally overdosing on weight loss pills and caffeine.

According to The Shade Room, which says it has spoken directly to the rapper, he was hospitalised earlier this week after taking two Hydroxycut pills, rather than the recommended one. His body apparently reacted badly to this, along with the cup of coffee he’d also drunk.

Two diet pills and a coffee might not sound that bad. You’re possibly thinking that there’s something else at play here. 6ix9ine would like you to stop that.

He has apparently insisted that no other drugs apart from Hydroxycut and caffeine were involved. Aside from the fact, he says, that he doesn’t take illegal drugs, doing so (and ending up in the hospital as a result) would violate the terms of his probation and send him right back to jail.

The rapper, of course, was released from prison early and placed under house arrest back in April over fears that he could contract COVID-19 while incarcerated. He is in a high risk group, due to his chronic asthma.

He was sentenced to a two year jail term in December last year after pleading guilty to various criminal charges relating to his past involvement with the Nine Trey Bloods street gang in New York.
