Nearly two weeks after dropping an album that surrounds the events that happened on the night of the shooting, Tory Lanez went on Instagram Live in an attempt to give fans what they’ve been waiting for: his side of the story. The Canadian rapper said that, for the past three months, his character has been assassinated because of false information, and now, since his court date has been set, he can finally give his account. However, Tory was more focused on Megan‘s side of the story as he picked apart each account she gave and called her a liar.
“She knows what happened, I know what happened, and we know that what you’re saying and the alleged things and the alleged accusations of what my name is are not true,” Tory said, claiming that he and Megan are still friends. “It’s falsified information…I don’t ever want to 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 I’m disrespecting her because to me, as a person, she’s still my friend no matter what even if she doesn’t look at me like that, I look at her like she’s still my friend.”
Not only were there following reports that stated Megan was indeed treated for gunshot wounds, but Cedars-Sinai medical records confirm that doctors reportedly found shrapnel in her heel after the incident. Tory never addressed this in his live, instead, he kept going after Megan and her “falsified information.”
Tory also pointed out that Megan first claimed she was shot in the feet as she was walking away from the SUV —meaning she didn’t actually see who shot her — then switched up her statement. The Daystar rapper then questioned why Megan didn’t tell police she was shot when they arrived. Tory also accused Megan of using the black card as an excuse for not giving him up to the police.
Months ago, Megan took to Instagram Live and labeled Tory as the shooter, saying that, “I didn’t tell the police what happened immediately right there because I didn’t want to die.” She elaborated:
Tory said that he wanted to make a public statement right after the incident but was advised not to do so.
“Two days after that, I get a call from Roc Nation that says, ‘Yo, we heard you were going to make a statement about what happened, and it’d be in your best interest if you don’t make that statement,'” Tory said. “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 …'”
During Tory‘s Live, Megan Thee Stallion took to Twitter and said, “This N***a genuinely crazy.”
As we’ve reported, the L.A. County D.A.’s Office officially charged Tory Lanez with one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and one count of carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle, according to TMZ. If convicted, he faces up to 22 years and 8 months in prison.
