Sara Molina, who was in a seven-year relationship with 6ix9ine, has given an extensive interview in which she details multiple instances of alleged physical abuse.
Molina told the Daily Beast in an interview published Wednesday that 6ix9ine, who pleaded guilty in his federal racketeering case last month, "had beaten her often" during the relationship. During one alleged incident at a hotel in Dubai in October, Molina said 6ix9ine punched her "out of nowhere," causing a hair extension clip to enter her scalp. "There was blood on the hotel pillow cases," Molina, who has a daughter with 6ix9ine, said. "He got scared." 6ix9ine, she added, ultimately convinced her to stay instead of returning to New York.
The Dummy Boy artist is said to have repeatedly accused Molina during this period of having some sort of relationship with his ex-manager Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, accusations he allegedly tried to get a confession on by revealing his sexual relationships with "70 other women" in the past year. Those relationships, she said, had resulted in pregnancies and STDs. During another of 6ix9ine's alleged attempts at eliciting a confession on these accusations, Molina said she was beaten by him for two hours. "He punched me so hard in my right ear I thought I was deaf," she said.
Molina also alleged that 6ix9ine kicked her, put a pillow over her face to exploit her fear of suffocation, choked her, and "forced me to have sex with him." During a separate alleged incident of domestic violence in April, she said 6ix9ine beat her in front of their daughter and only stopped upon Shotti's intervention.

In 2015, 6ix9ine—who worked with Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Tory Lanez, and more on Dummy Boy—pleaded guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance and was later given a probation sentence. This incident is seemingly referenced in the Daily Beast report:
She was not at all sure about him fostering a raunchy persona by making a sex video that featured him and a friend with a girl who proved to be just 13.
"All publicity is good publicity," she would say in summing up Tekashi's view.
In January, 6ix9ine pleaded guilty to nine counts in the aforementioned racketeering case and will reportedly be cooperating with federal government officials as the case moves forward.
