Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s girlfriend Jade isn’t hitting update willy nilly these days. The former bartender, model, and other half to 24-year-old “GOOBA” rapper 6ix9ine has been busy fine-tuning her influencer skills for her 1.7 million followers – Jade, real name Rachel Wattley, updated her Instagram ahead of the weekend with a little bathtime fun.
Jade, who has been markedly absent on Instagram alongside 6ix9ine since the rapper’s September 4-released “TattleTales” album, beat her boyfriend, real name Daniel Hernandez, to it with a return today. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photos. Jade, quiet since stripping down to her rainbow bikini for 6ix9ine’s “TUTU” video post on September 5, broke her silence today to likely earn herself some cash. The star’s update showed her in a rare, makeup-free state and in a deep-soaking tub, also covered in luxurious Gold Foil face products from La’Vish Glam Beauty. The 24K Golden Glow Essential Kit being promoted retails for $157 – not too bad, considering it contains a minimum of four products.
Keep scrolling for the photos. Jade, whose following sat at 1.5 million shortly before her boyfriend’s post-prison album release, now boasts 1.7 million followers. Her caption, addressing her “dolls,” did a perfect influencer job.
“?Check out @lavish_glam_beauty products that I have been using for my daily skincare routine. The 24k Golden Glow Essential kit has improved the texture of my skin, helped with fine lines, repaired/ smoothed the skin,” Jade wrote, adding the pore-reducing and acne-fighting benefits of the product she was plugging.
Jade, whose fanbase is largely formed of Tekashi fans, did seem to see her followers keener to find out where the controversial rapper is than picking up beauty deets.
6ix9ine, last active as he appeared to destroy “TattleTales” poster art for 10 million+ views on September 11, has stayed silent on an account he used to update near-daily. The rapper, himself handing out copies of his album for free amid poor sales projections and mass trolling, has also admitted to being in a “bad mood” as he accused both Apple Music and Spotify of not circulating his new release correctly. More after the video.
Jade’s post today blurred the lines between casual shout-out and paid influencer, although it’s largely accepted that a celebrity shout-out comes with a little pay. Experts at Vox have suggested potential earning figures.
“Influencers with up to 1 million followers can get $10,000 [per post], depending on the platform, and 1 million followers and up, you’re getting into territory where they can charge $100,000. Some can even get $250,000 for a post!”
Jade, who has been dating 6ix9ine since 2018 and stuck by the rapper through his now-completed two-year prison sentence, has been showing off the perks of dating her man. Gucci and private jets below.
