10 Oct Tory Lanez charged with shooting Megan Thee Stallion
After being charged with two counts of criminal assault by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for his role in the July 12 shooting of Megan Thee Stallion, Tory Lanez issued an official statement. The Toronto rapper, born Daystar Peterson, was taken to Twitter after breaking his silence with his somewhat controversial DAYSTAR album, which he released on September 25.
The short tweet rarely goes into any detail or clearly proclaims its innocence. Tory’s declaration reads: “[Time] will [tell] … and the truth will come to light … I have every faith in God to prove that … the love of all my fans and the people who have been faithful to me and know my heart … the charge is not the conviction. If you helped me or Meg during this, I really thank you.

According to Hypebeast, Here is the original story :
Initial Tale (October 8, 2020): Tory Lanez was reportedly charged with shooting Megan Thy Stallion after an altercation that happened on July 12, 2020. According to news, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office charged Lanez with two felony charges of assault with a semi-automatic pistol and carrying a loaded, unregistered weapon in the automobile. The prosecutors argue that the Canadian musician, the real name of Daystar Petersen, “inflicted great bodily harm” to the Houston rapper, whose real name is Megan Pete. The July 12 incident supposedly stemmed from an argument between Megan Thee Stallion and Lanez inside an SUV in Hollywood Hills. Witnesses told authorities that shots were fired and that the vehicle drove off after the argument erupted, and authorities four shell casings were located outside of the home where the altercation occurred. Megan then revealed that she was recovering from gunshot wounds to the foot, confirming that she was not arrested and that it was “a result of a crime” committed against her.
The Houston Rapper didn’t call her attacker until over a month later when she took to social media to say that Lanez fired her. “Yes, who’s the n***a tory who fired me. You shot me, man. And you’ve got your publicist and your people lying and sh*t on these blogs. Avoid lying to you. Why are you lying? I don’t understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you dragging it. You really f*ckin dragging it,” she said on Instagram Live. “Everybody in the car — there’s only four motherf*ckers in the car: me, you, my home girl and your security. Everybody in the car arguing. I’m in the front seat, this n***a in the backseat. I get out the car, I’m done arguing… I’m walking away. This n***a, from out the backseat of the car, starts shooting me! You shot me!”
She continued to explain that her fear of law enforcement caused her to initially claim that she was cut by glass. She added, “Soon as the police tell us to all get out the motherf*ckin’ car, the police is really aggressive. You think I’m ’bout to tell the police that we, n***as, us black people, got a gun in the car?”
Lanez broke his silence in late September by releasing his album DAYSTAR, where he directly addressed the allegations. He claimed that he and Megan Thee Stallion were more than friends, and categorically denied shooting her in the foot with the lines, “Gotta see a couple questions/ How the f*ck you get shot in your foot, don’t hit no bones or tendons?/ How the f*ck your team is trying to pay me in some whole millions?/ I just lost like $10 million dollars because this cold business/ But I got like 10 million followers that’s gon’ roll with me/ Fans that support me because they know my heart.”
Lanez will be arraigned on October 13 in Los Angeles and faces a maximum sentence of approximately 23 years if convicted. Prosecutors are suggesting a $1.1 million USD bail at his arraignment. – Adapted from Hypebeast
