Tory Lanez is under fire after being charged for shooting Megan Thee Stallion on the ight he was originally arrested for gun possession.
In the immediate frame that followed the July 12 incident, the Canadian maintained a measured silence which he eventually broke by way of controversial album ‘DAYSTAR.’
Now, though, after being formally charged in relation to the act, he has spoken up to defend himself on Instagram Live.
His words below…
“When this whole debacle or whatever you call it came about, she knows what happened, I know what happened, and we know that what you’re saying and what the alleged things and the alleged accusations of my name is are not true. It’s falsified information. It’s false information and it’s not accurate 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.”
Lanez went on to add:
“I’m not gonna sit here and bash her, but at the same time, it comes to a standpoint as me as a person, where it’s like, yo, do y’all want me to just sit here and just allow my name to be assassinated, my character to be assassinated, everything that I worked for to get here to just be assassinated for something I did not do?”
In a bold move that negates both context and connection, Lanez defended himself by saying to Megan:
“You had plenty of time to tell the cops that you were in danger” (in reference to her words when questioned by police alongside her friend Kelsey Nicole). He stressed that he wouldn’t protect someone who “just heinously shot me.”
It didn’t take long for Megan to respond and she was direct with her sentiments:
On Meg’s end, she’s been consistent in her identification of Tory as the shooter and has been open about feeling traumatised by the entire situation.
Our thoughts and well-wishes remain with her.
