Tekashi 6ix9ine grabs girlfriend's bottom in first jail photo

Troubled rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine can be seen posing provocatively with his girlfriend Jade in a photo she published after visiting him in jail.

The admitted child sex offender squeezes her buttocks in the pic, while she has her arms around his shoulders and kisses his face.

Tekashi69, real name Daniel Hernandez, is facing multiple charges as part of a crackdown on the Nine Trey Bloods gang.

So far, photos of the 'Gummo' hitmaker attending court have circulated online, but none actually taken inside a correctional institute - until Jade's loved up pic.

"He's good luv, enjoy. #FreeDanny," she captioned the post.

Tekashi69 infamously pleaded guilty to being involved in a 2015 sexual act with a 13-year-old girl, which he filmed and posted online.

The new crimes he's accused of include involvement with armed robberies and organised gang shootings, while his associates are accused of large-scale drug dealing and other violent crimes.

Tekashi69 is facing 32 years to life behind bars if he's found guilty.
