Tory Lanez Pleads Not Guilty To Shooting Megan Thee Stallion

18 November 2020

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.
