Tekashi 6ix9ine recently received his official release date from prison after serving time for various charges, but it appears as though he may have to deal with additional legal issues before he is freed.

According to TMZ, the "Fefe" rapper had previously made a deal to promote Fashion Nova on his social media accounts and through his music. As stated by legal documents, Tekashi had been given an advance of $225K in October 2018 to hold up his end of the bargain with the discount fashion retailer.

Two weeks after the agreement was finalized, the musician was arrested, which made him unable to fulfill his end of the deal. Additionally, it has been said by the outlet that the testimony that 6ix9ine gave during his trial "totally torpedoed his ability to be a good brand ambassador."

Following his arrest, the brand claimed that the rapper had acted in an underhanded way due to the fact that he and his team allegedly hid the criminal proceedings from them. This, in turn, prompted Tekashi to allegedly promise to return the $225K. However, the clothing company claims that never happened, which has now prompted them to sue him as part of a $2.25M lawsuit.

This is not the first time that Fashion Nova has received a celebrity endorsement of their items. Cardi B has also been known to wear different things from the brand. As reported by Page Six, in 2019, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper wore a $30 dress during her appearance at the MTV VMAs afterparty that year.

As for what's next for Tekashi, following his release from prison this summer, he is reportedly expected to complete 300 hours of community service and pay a fine of $35,000. His August release is coming after Dawn Florio, a member of the musician's legal team, stated that her client was "getting released early" because he's been the "perfect model prisoner."
