XXL is reporting that Tekashi 6ix9ine was hospitalized for overdosing on caffeine and weight loss pills.

The outlet states, “The Brooklyn rapper was hospitalized in Florida two days ago after consuming too much caffeine, causing him to sweat profusely while sitting at his computer. He also consumed too many weight loss pills.”

“In addition to drinking McDonald’s coffee, he also took two Hydroxycut weight loss pills instead of the advised dose of one pill per day, which appears to have triggered his overdose.”

The rapper is reportedly home and doing fine.

XXL adds that Tekashi has revealed that he’s put on weight since being released from prison. He weighed 200 pounds at one point but now weighs 177 pounds. His goal weight is 150 pounds. When he gets there, he will return to social media.
