Earlier Tory Lanez had taken to his social media account to clear out his name yet again. He went live on Instagram and addressed the allegations against him.
The rapper declared the allegations false and denied Megan Thee Stallion being shot on her feet. However, he did confirm the report of him being arrested in Los Angeles for possession of a weapon.
Megan was in the car with one of her friends and bodyguard before the chaos took place. The initial reports that came to light did not include the WAP rapper being shot on her leg. Tory claimed that he was about to make a statement about the matter but was advised against it.
He shared, “Two days after that, I get a call from Roc Nation that says, ‘Yo, we heard you were gonna make a statement about what happened, and it’d be in your best interest if you don’t make that statement.’ And I’m like, OK? I don’t understand the issue of me telling my fans, like, ‘Yo, it’s not that serious of a deal …'”
The rapper also shifted attention to reports of Megan being treated for injuries that occurred because of shattered glass. He said that nobody said she got shot and Megan a week later posted pictures of her leg which showed injuries. She claimed that confirmed that she had been shot.
However, Tory claims that the bullet wounds were the result of a crime that was committed against him. He said it was done with the intention of harming him physically. The hospital records say another story and support Megan’s claims.
Tory Calls Megan His ‘Friend’
The rapper went ahead creating speculation and allegations about how Megan said she was walking away when she was shot, which according to him meant she did not see who shot her. Tory also questioned Megan’s intentions on not reporting it to the police right away if she had been shot.
Megan had explained the incident in detail and said she was afraid to tell the police because it could have been more deadly since a black guy has a weapon. She said the police can shoot anyone for anything and referred to the Black Lives Matter movement. The rapper said she feared they would all be shot dead if she reported it right away.
However, despite refuting and denying all the allegations, Tory said he has stood up for Black women and still considers Megan his friend. He said, “… It’s not accurate information. I don’t ever wanna come off like I’m here to bash this girl or I’m here to talk down about this girl or ever be at a place where, like, I’m disrespecting her, because to me, as a person, she’s still my friend.”
The feeling is definitely not mutual as Megan seemingly responded to his Instagram live. She took to her social media and said this guy is genuinely crazy. Although she did not specify the “guy” she is talking about but it seems pretty obvious.
Many fans agreed with Megan and they pointed out how Tory has never once denied shooting Megan specifically. The user tweeted, “I noticed not once has tory said “I did not shoot her” he just does the runaround and says a whole bunch of nothing. F**k him.”
Tory has been charged with assault with a weapon and also for carrying an unregistered weapon in his vehicle.
