Tory Lanez and his legs; team arrived at Los Angeles courthouse today for what was supposed to be a routine court hearing today in the Megan Thee Stallion felony assault case. Meg’s legal team and the district attorney were out for blood.
The prosecutors asked for a “special” hearing on Tory, claiming that he violated a protective order against Meg – by “harassing tweets.” None of the tweets mentioned Meg by name, but could be seen as taking subliminal digs at the female rapper, who Tory claims has lied from the beginning of the case.
Judge David Herriford heard nearly an hour of argument about Tory’s tweets and in the end ruled that some of them “seem to be clear messages” to Meg. That’s when the judge laid down the GAVEL.
Judge found him in violation of discovery protective order and personal contact order, and Tory Lanez was handcuffed in court and remanded to custody until he posts new bail of $350,000.
The judge added new condition to Tory’s release that he’s “not to mention the complaining witness in this case in any social media.” He also se the trial for 9/14.
Megan Thee Stallion leaked text messages of Tory Lanez apologizing to her. Tory says the apology was not for allegedly shooting her. He says he was sleeping with her and her best friend.
In the posts Tory apologizes to Megan and says he was drunk and that it shouldn’t have happened.
“Lie yo way out of this … if you aint do sh*t what you was apologizing for? THE LAWYERS GOT YO PHNE RECORDS AND MINE. ALL YOUR TXT. THEY GOT YOU RECORDED ON THE JAIL PHONE TALKING TO KELSEY APOLOGIZING BEGGING US NOT TO TALK,” she captioned the post.
Lanez responded: “Good D*ick had me f*cking 2 best friends …. and I got caught … that’s what I apologized 4 . … it’s sick how u Spun it tho …
The trial has not started but twice over recent weeks Lanez has implied that he’s expecting a legal win. If Megan has recordings of him confessing to the crime and begging them not to talk, then can he still beat the case?
Megan Thee Stallion is facing the biggest crisis of her career. Yesterday Tory Lanez’s lawyer released some EXPLOSIVE evidence, that could exonerate Tory Lanez in his shooting case against Megan.
And ever since the evidence was leaked, social media has turned on Megan.
When Megan first spoke out about the shooting, and blamed Tory for it – social media was riding for the beautiful female rapper. Tory’s social media comments were flooded with negative messages, and fans began boycotting his shows.
Megan has said from the beginning – that Tory shot her. But with each day, as more evidence gets released, it seems more and more unlikely that, that actually happened. And social media smells blood in the water.
Yesterday hundreds of people on Twitter began calling Megan Thee Stallion “Megan Smullet” – comparing her to actor Jussie Smollet, who was convicted of committing a “hoax” robbery in Chicago. Some are even calling for her to be “arrested” for false charges, if it turns out that Tory is innocent.
According to Tory’s lawyer Shawn Holley, police have located an independent witness – i.e. someone NOT connected to Tory Lanez, or Megan – who says they saw Meg fighting with her friend before the shooting. That same witness claims that the gunshot appeared to come from Meg’s friend and not Tory.
Shawn Holley also claims that Meg’s friend had gunshot residue on her hands.
If everything Shawn Holley says about the incident is true, they might as well drop the charges against Tory Lanez right now.
Marcus is speaking out following a court hearing on Tuesday for the 2020 shooting incident involving her and Tory Lanez. After Tory Lanez’ defense attorney claimed that Megan’s former friend Kelsey Nicole was interested in the “Say It” rapper and that Nicole “grew jealous” which sparked a fight between her and Thee Stallion, Meg took to social media to speak out against the claims. She tweeted:
Don’t blogs/ journalists have to have accurate/ credible sources before going with a story ? Or is it just like a new I got paid to post this or I heard out from my home girl type policy these days.”
On Tuesday, Megan’s 2020 shooting incident involving Tory Lanez made headlines once again after a court hearing revealed disturbing details from the controversial night. LAPD Detective Ryan Stogner testified during the hearing that Tory — real name Daystar Peterson — shouted “Dance, b*****!” before shooting the “Body” rapper in the foot. He told the court:
An independent witness told cops they saw Marcus and her female friend, Kelsey, fighting just moments before Meg was shot in the foot … a piece of evidence Torry Lame team feels cast serious doubt on what Meg said about him being the shooter.
During Tuesday’s preliminary hearing a detective testified this independent witness — who allegedly saw the shooting happen — claimed the gun’s muzzle flash went off closer to Kelsey than Tory.
Tory’s attorney, Shawn Holley, says that muzzle flash detail is “corroborated by the gunshot residue found on the other female’s hands.” She also tells us, “It was further established that Megan gave several inconsistent accounts of what happened that night and that she omitted key information to the police.”
Holley is almost certainly referring to what Meg first told responding officers, she had glass, and not a bullet, in her foot. Meg later claimed she only said it was glass because she was afraid if she told cops there was a Black man in the car with a gun, Tory could get shot.
Remember, this was the month after George Floyd was murdered.
Still, Holley adds, “We look forward to the opportunity to cross examine her at trial about the numerous inconsistencies in her story.”
A detective testified Tuesday Meg claimed Lanez shouted, “Dance Bitch Dance!” before shooting her in the foot, and that he later apologized from a jailhouse call to Kelsey for doing something while drunk … though he never specified what he had done.
Tory Lanezhas to fork over more bail money after prosecutors say he violated a court order to stay away from Megan Thee Stallion with his surprise appearance at Rolling Loud … but at least he won’t be behind bars.
Lanez was in an L.A. court Monday to learn his fate and he’s gonna have to post a higher bail amount to stay out of jail while his criminal case is pending. The reason — he violated a protective order requiring him to stay clear of Megan.
The judge also modified his bail conditions to specifically prohibit Tory from attending events where his alleged victim, Megan, will be present. The judge also said if this issue comes up again … he will be remanded into custody. So, this was clearly his last warning.
Tory’s bail was increased from $190k to $250k — so he’ll have to throw down a bit more dough to stay free.
Word On The Curb..Tory Lanez‘s surprise appearance at Rolling Loud better have been worth it for him, because it’s landed him in hot water with prosecutors who are now going after him in court, claiming he violated a court order to stay away from Megan Thee Stallion.
Sources say prosecutors have filed a motion to hold Lanez in contempt for violating the restraining order that was issued in his ongoing criminal case.
We’re told the prosecutors believe Tory’s guest appearance during DaBaby‘s controversial set at the Miami hip-hop festival last month violated the judge’s order, because he got within 100 yards of her.
Now prosecutors have filed legal docs asking the judge to either revoke Tory’s bail — which could land him in jail pending trial — or at the very least increase his bail.
They also say prosecutors believe Tory and DaBaby attempted to rush the stage while Megan was performing.
A source close to Tory told us he never saw Meg at the festival nor did he ever get physically close to her.
A hearing on the contempt motion is set for next Thursday.
