Tory Lanez allegedly shouted ‘jump b *** h’ in Megan Thee Stallion before shooting her in the foot, a court heard.
The 29-year-old singer appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday for a hearing on whether the case will go to trial.
Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, was charged with felony assault after being accused of shooting Megan in the leg, 26 years old after a party in the Hollywood Hills at Kylie Jenner’s home in July 2020.
He has pleaded not guilty.
At the latest trial, Los Angeles Police detective Ryan Stogner testified based on his account of interviews with Megan, whose real name is Megan Pete.
Mr. Stogner told the court according to Rolling Stone: ‘As she got out of the car, she heard Mr Peterson shouting obscenities at her, and he said, “Jump, b***h!” And then he started firing a weapon at her…
‘[Megan] She watched Mr. Peterson hold the gun and then she watched him begin to shoot.
“Megan immediately felt pain in her leg, observed blood, fell to the ground, then crawled into the adjoining driveway of a mansion… She described her wound as bleeding profusely.”
Mr Stogner continued: ‘Megan claimed the defendant was sorry for doing it and offered her money and begged her to please not say anything and refer to the fact that he was under arrest. and he begged her not to say anything. ”
At one point during the hearing, Lanez is said to have grown angry and shouted at Stogner, after the detective spoke of him calling a friend of Megan’s from prison to apologize.
Lanez shouted: ‘And you, tell me what I was sorry for, man? That doesn’t make any sense,’ before being asked to remain silent by attorney Shawn Holley.
Judge Keith Borjon decided to uphold the assault charge against Lanez, who will return to court on January 13 to begin his trial.
Lanez is facing two counts: assault with a semi-automatic firearm and carrying an unregistered, loaded firearm in a vehicle, along with the additional charge that he ’caused himself major bodily injury ‘.
He faces 22 years and eight months in prison if convicted.
Over a month after the incident, Megan said in an Instagram live stream that Tory was the one who shot her.
She told her followers: ‘That’s right, this n ***** Tory shot me.
‘You shot me, and you got your public and your people on these blogs to lie and s**t. Stop lying.
‘Why lie? I do not understand. I tried to stop the situation on the internet, but you are dragging it. ‘
