Tory Lanez has pleaded not guilty to shooting Megan Thee Stallion.
Tory did not appear in court but his lawyer Shawn Holley submitted a not guilty plea on his behalf during a hearing today (November 17). Megan was also not present in court.
Holley said his client “strongly objects” to shooting Megan in both feet during after a party during summer.
Back in October,Los Angeles prosecutors charged Tory with shooting Megan Thee Stallion and now faces two felony charges, one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
If convicted, he could face a maximum of 22 years in prison.
Tory’s not guilty plea comes after the Canadian rapper released an album in which he claimed he was being framed for the shooting, rapping: “Megan people trying to frame me for a shooting / But them boys ain’t clean enough.
“I see how they teaming up, watching and I’m calculating / Gotta keep it quiet, I can’t jeopardise the outcome waiting.”
Prior to the release of the album, Megan had named Tory as the shooter, saying on Instagram Live: “Yes this n***a Tory shot me.
“You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs lying and s**t. Stop lying.”
The case remains under investigation.
