The popular celebrity security guard, Shadow, known for providing security to celebrities such as Jake Paul, Drake, and most recently Tekashi 6ix9ine has reportedly passed away. While many took to his Instagram account to pay their respects, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s baby momma, Sara Molina took to her Instagram to honor the late bodyguard.
“I was gonna go on a little break from Instagram but given the circumstances and what I’ve seen happen, I want to give my deepest sincere condolences to Shadow’s family, his kids JJ, Boogie, Mason, and his latest addition Zion, as well as his wife, Christina,” she began. “I know Shadow loved you. Just the way he would talk about you– his ‘Cuban Mami’. Shadow was a great person. He was a great man, he was a family man. I am deeply saddened ’cause I know the impact he made in my life as well as many others.”
Sara then shared an experience where Shadow helped her in a domestic violence situation between her and Tekashi 6ix9ine that occurred in Dubai. Sara then reveals text messages between her and Shadow that state he “put hands on” Tekashi 6ix9ine following a domestic violence incident between the two.
