Tory Lanez Breaks His Silence About Megan Thee Stallion's Claims
Tory Lanez has broken his silence about Megan Thee Stallion’s claim that he shot her in the foot back in July.
“Megan people trying to frame me for a shooting / But them boys ain’t clean enough,” he raps on “Money Over Fallouts,” a track on his surprise new album DAYSTAR. “I see how they teaming up, watching and I’m calculating / Gotta keep it quiet, I can’t jeopardize the outcome waiting.”
Later, he raps: “I would never put you in no danger / and if I did you would have said it when you seen the cops.”
The Canadian rapper, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, complains: “Look at how you doing me / People tryin’ to ruin me / And what’s even worse is I’m still thinking about you and me.”
Lanez also casts doubt on Megan’s injury. “How the f**k you get shot in your foot / don’t hit no bones or tendons?”
Lanez, who has not been charged with shooting Megan, claims on the track that he has lost “like $10 million” due to the accusation against him but adds that he’s “got like 10 million followers that’s going to roll with me / Fans that support me because they know my heart.”
Overnight, he tweeted for the first time since the incident.
“To my fans ... I’m sorry for my silence .... but respectfully .. I got time today,” he wrote. “There is a time to stay silent . And a time to speak ..... I said all I could say on this ... I’ll be back to y’all soon .... respectfully ….”
Police in Los Angeles responding to a 911 call stopped the SUV that Stallion was in with Lanez and two others at around 4:30 a.m. on July 12. Lanez was arrested on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon.
Initial reports said Megan suffered cuts to her foot from broken glass but, a few days later, she took to social media to say she “suffered gun shot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me." She did not name the alleged shooter.
Then, last month, Megan publicly pointed the finger at Lanez.
“Tory shot me,” she said during an Instagram Live. “You shot me and you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs lying and s**t.”
Megan recalled she was in the SUV with a female friend, Lanez and his bodyguard. An argument broke out and Megan, who was in the front seat and only five minutes from home, decided to get out. She said Lanez, “from out the backseat of the car starts shooting me.”
Lanez’s new song “Money Over Fallouts,” the opening track on DAYSTAR, starts with 45 seconds of soundbites from news reports (and Megan) talking about the incident. Lanez then says: “Done with this. You gotta know the truth.”
