Fans of Tekashi69 who is also popularly known as 6ix9ine are all asking whether the rapper has come out of his closet after a picture of him kissing a guy on the cheeks went viral on Twitter.
Since there was no context to the photo, which shows the rapper in long, colorful corn rows planting a kiss on an unnamed guy’s cheeks, people began assuming that Tekashi69 was coming out as gay.
Check out the picture here:
Some people also pointed to the fact that the rapper had always hinted at the fact that he was a homosexual when he chose to sport rainbow-colored braids for hair. Others wanted to know whether the man he was kissing was his boyfriend. There were also those who pointed out the rumor that Tekashi69 once allegedly indulged in gay porn and his sex tape was leaked onto the internet. There was also the rumor that when he allegedly did gay porn, he went by a different name, a.k.a, Apache blu.
It is important to note that Opoyi has not found any evidence of these unconfirmed claims. Here are a few reactions from social media after the photo went viral:
The rapper has a girlfriend
The rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, has been romantically linked with women in the past. He is believed to be dating social media influencer who goes by the name @__ohsoyoujade on Instagram since they met in 2018.
She is a former bartender at a New York strip club. Her real name, Rachel Watley.
The GOOBA rapper splurged $35,000 on a watch for her birthday. There were allegations against Jade in 2019 that rapper Offset was flirting with her despite being married to Cardi B.
However, despite the allegations, Jade never left 6ix9ine’s side despite the latter’s arrest and prison time. She constantly visited him in jail and posted online about his freedom. She also donned his signature rainbow hair and even got his face tattooed prominently on her chest.
She also penned her letter to the rapper’s judge asking for leniency, claiming she had only met him a few weeks ahead of him being indicted but still had immense love for him.
“When I met Daniel Hernandez [Tekashi], he was nothing like how the internet portrayed him to be. He was the total opposite. He was exceptionally respectful, outgoing, very sweet, kind-hearted and a genuine generous person,” she wrote. “Yes, we knew each other for a few weeks before his indictment but I decided to stick by his side not because I felt I needed to but that he needed someone he can trust in his corner.”
