Tory Lanez promises that the truth will come out as he prepares to fight charges brought against him in court.
Despite being charged with the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion on Thursday, Toronto singer Tory Lanez is maintaining his innocence and insisting that this case will only vindicate his side of the story.
Lanez was charged with felony assault as well as one count of carrying a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.
Taking to Twitter to shout out his fans that have continued to support him throughout this developing story, Tory Lanez wrote, “[Time] will [tell]…and the truth will come to the light. I have faith in God to show that…love to all my fans and people that have stayed true to me & know my heart…a charge is not a conviction. If you have supported me or meg thru this, I genuinely appreciate u.”
Lanez was originally arrested on July 12th for possession of a firearm after a party hosted by Kylie Jenner. While it was clear that Megan Thee Stallion, who had been riding in a vehicle with Tory, had been injured, she initially refused to speak with police about what had happened before they arrived on the scene.
Due to widespread rumors and speculation following the highly publicized incident, Megan eventually decided to name Tory as her attacker on a video she posted to social media. Now it appears the District Attorney’s office has decided that there is enough evidence to charge Lanez with the shooting that resulted in Megan having to have bullet fragments removed from her feet.
Since the night of the shooting, Tory has released the album DayStar on which he vehemently denies having shot Megan.
Meanwhile, Megan Thee Stallion has fully recovered from her injuries and continues to perform, including appearing as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live’s season premiere this month. If convicted, Tory Lanez could spend up to 22 years in prison for the assault.
Just a few weeks after Tory Lanez returned with his surprise project Daystar, headlines announces that the Toronto rapper could be facing up to 22 years in prison. In Los Angles on July 12th, Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion linked up for a fun night in the city. The night went south after an argument took place in an SUV that Tory, Megan, and some others were riding in.
Shots were fired and it left Megan Thee Stallion with bullets in her foot causing her to end up in the hospital. A month later, the “WAP” rapper went on IG live to state that Tory Lanez was the shooter. In response, Tory dropped his project Daystar which revealed that him and Megan Thee Stallion were dating and that is what caused the argument and heated emotions.
According to TMZ, The L.A. County D.A.’s Office hit him with one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and one count of carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. The D.A. also alleges Tory inflicted great bodily injury. If convicted, the rapper/singer faces up to 22 years and 8 months in prison.
