Rapper Tory Lanez was charged with shooting Meghan Thee Stallion on July 12, Los Angeles County prosecutors announced yesterday, via CNN and The Hollywood Reporter. Lanez now has two counts. The Hollywood Reporter wrote that it was “assault with a semi-automatic firearm – personal use of a firearm and transporting a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle”. Authorities also told the outlet that Lanez “faces a firearm allegation and has personally inflicted serious bodily harm.”
Lanez is accused of having shot Megan in the foot several times. He is due to be brought to justice on October 13 and faces a maximum prison sentence of 22 years and eight months if convicted.
Megan first spoke about the incident on her Instagram Live on July 27.
She explained, “I was shot in both feet and had to have surgery to remove the shit, to take out the bullets, and it was super scary… I had to have an operation. . It was super scary. It was just the worst experience of my life, and it’s no fun, no joke about it. It wasn’t for all of you to go out there and fool around. “
“I didn’t get a hold of anyone,” she continued. “I didn’t deserve to be shot. I didn’t do shit. And thank God the bullets don’t hit the bones. They didn’t break the tendons. I know my mom, dad and my grandmother had to look out for me, because where the bullets hit they missed everything, but the sons of fathers were there. “
On August 20, she confirmed reports that Lanez shot her on Instagram Live after false reports of what had happened kept spreading. “You shot me and made your publicist and your people on these blogs lie,” she said on Instagram Live, after naming Lanez as her attacker.
