Things began getting messy in the days leading up to 6ix9ine's arrest. The rapper was set to embark on his first American tour which ultimately got canceled when he found out that people were stealing money to him, prompting him to fire his whole team. He detailed some of it during his visit to the Breakfast Club last week, but today, new information has surfaced on who exactly stole the money from him.

According to The Daily Beast, Shottie, 6ix9ine's former manager, was the person who ended up cheating the rapper out of $2.5M on his now-canceled tour. According to the court's financial disclosure statements, the three other defendants in the case, Mel Murda, Ish, and Crippy, claimed that they couldn't afford a lawyer and needed one appointed by the court. However, Shotti revealed that he had $60K in his bank account, but police sources believe that 6ix9ine's ex-manager actually pocketed an additional $2.5M. 

6ix9ine was reportedly alerted about the missing cash when the promoter of his upcoming tour. Police claim the promoter contacted 6ix9ine to directly tell him how much money he should've earned from the tour who said that Shotti should've given the Brooklyn rapper $2.5M. However, 6ix9ine only received $300K.

Along with law enforcement, the three other co-defendants believe Shotti has more money than what's shown in his account. They were reportedly looking for his help financially when they were in court discussing representation and bail.
