Rapper Tory Lanez has finally been charged by the Los Angeles County DA’s office for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in her foot. They hit the DayStar artist with felony assault with use of a semiautomatic firearm, causing great bodily injury. Tory Lanez was also charged with possession of a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
When you add it all up, the Canadian star, once considered a Hip Hop golden boy, is now looking at a possible 22-year jail sentence. It’s a future that was literally unthinkable until he allegedly pulled the trigger on that ill-fated night of partying in the Hollywood Hills.
You’ll remember, “Hot Girl Meg” was seen all over the world on video gingerly stepping away from Tory’s SUV with her hands raised and leaving bloody footprints in the streets.
While logical explanations still seem to evade the rap starlet for her behavior, Megan took several days to even admit to the public who she believed had shot her. She never even told the calvary of police that rushed in to save her that night. But eventually the “WAP” rapper did come out and name Tory Lanez as her assailant, finally saying over social media…
“Yes, this n***a Tory shot me. You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people to these blogs lying and s**t, stop lying!”
Megan would also come to write an affidavit to that effect, further putting the squeeze in on Tory Lanez.
But a funny thing happened… After being silent since the incident in July under the guise of not talking about his open case, Tory Lanez decided to drop an album a couple weeks ago almost exclusively about Megan Thee Stallion and what transpired that night. Tory even declared his innocence several times on the record.
Well, it looks like the L.A. County DA’s office also decided to buy the album, which included fresh details about the rapper’s defense strategy. So… the decision to turn Tory’s misfortune into a money grab doesn’t look to be a wise one.
What to watch for next? Megan’s “best friend,” Kelly. The DA’s office probably has all it needs to convict, but Kelly is a very important witness because she was in that SUV too. You know what though… the girls actually hate each other now, all because of the situation.
Don’t move along just yet, there’s alot to see with this one. We’ll keep you plugged in. Until the next time it drips…
