Rapper Tory Lanez charged with shooting Megan Thee Stallion

After all the Tweets, live stories and rap songs, Tory Lanez has been charged with shooting Megan Thee Stallion.

The Canadian rapper and singer has been charged with assault for carrying a self-loading and having a hidden gun in a vehicle, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, it happened after the pair got into an argument whilst riding in an SUV in the Hollywood Hills on July 12th.

If convicted the Canadian artist faces up to 23 years in prison and the court hearings will begin on October 13 at the Foltz Criminal Justice Centre in Los Angeles.

Tory Lanez hasn’t spoken about the incident directly but released an album Daystar last month with many of the tracks addressing the incident. “Megan people tryna frame me,” he raps on the opening track, Money Over Fallout.

“Girl, you had the nerve to write that statement on that affidavit, knowing I ain’t do it but I’m coming at my truest.” In the same song, he casts doubt on whether she was shot at all, asking: “How you get shot in your foot, don’t hit no bones or tendons?”

Megan Thee Stallion first said she was cut by glass because she was scared police would start shooting if she told them that a gun was involved, but she later posted on Instagram that she had been shot by Tory.

“I didn’t tell the police nothing, because I didn’t want us to get in no more trouble than we was about to get in.”
