It wasn’t too long ago that Tekashi 6ix9ine got to ditch his house arrest monitor and he’s already found a replacement restraint — a cast. 

The 24-year-old rapper revealed to TMZ that he’s now rocking a cast for a broken wrist after tripping over his dog. According to the outlet, he was headed downstairs around 3 a.m. to grab a late night snack when he tripped over his 1-year-old French bulldog. 

The “Trolls” MC explained that his hand got entangled in the stairway banister as he tried to break his fall. Despite being in pain, he didn’t realize the extent of his injury until waking up hours later and still having pain in his wrist. 

After seeking medical attention, a doctor was able to identify the injury as a fracture and video footage shows the rapper getting his wrist and arm wrapped. He expects to spend anywhere from three to five weeks in the cast.
