Tory Lanez Jailed 10 Years For Shooting Megan Thee Stallion

A look back at the trial 👇

Rapper Tory Lanez has received a 10-year prison sentence due to his involvement in the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion’s feet. A jury in the United States has declared him guilty of discharging a firearm at the Savage singer during a confrontation that occurred in the Hollywood Hills. Over the course of more than three years since the incident in 2020, a significant amount of developments have unfolded both within and beyond the courtroom.

This particular case has caused a rift among fans and extended its impact into the broader hip-hop community, even leading to accusations against Drake for taking sides during a certain point. Testimony presented during the trial When the trial eventually commenced in Los Angeles towards the end of the previous year, following numerous delays, Megan had the opportunity to take the witness stand and provide her account of the events under oath.

“I find it hard to believe that I’m compelled to be here doing this,” were Megan’s opening words as she began her testimony in the Los Angeles courtroom.

She recounted how the entire situation originated at a party hosted by Kylie Jenner in the Hollywood Hills on the 12th of July, 2020. Megan, whose real name is Megan Pete, and Tory Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, engaged in a disagreement as they departed from the event.

During the trial, Megan detailed that the argument commenced when she playfully made fun of Lanez’s musical abilities. According to her account, Megan demanded to exit the vehicle, and at that point, she heard Tory urging her to dance.

Subsequently, he discharged a handgun.

The jury was informed that Megan left a trail of blood at the location, and shortly after the shooting, a friend messaged her security team with the words: “Help… Tory shot Meg.” In her testimony, Megan revealed that Lanez had offered her $1 million to remain silent about the incident and had later contacted her to apologize, attributing his actions to being “too intoxicated.”

She expressed her remorse through tears, indicating that she regretted coming forward and describing the act of speaking out as “agonizing.”
