Tory Lanez has broken his silence three months after he was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon the same night that Megan Thee Stallion sustained gunshot wounds on the back of her feet.
On Thursday (Sept. 24), Tory apologized to his fans via Twitter for not coming forward sooner, presumably referring to him not addressing series of events that have transpired since the shooting involving Megan took place back in July.”
To my fans … I’m sorry for my silence …. but respectfully .. I got time today …… 9 PM PST .,” he posted on Twitter.
Upon the tweets release, reaction flooded in instantly with fans of the “Cash Shit” rapper calling for Tory to silence himself. Others commented about looking forward to hearing what additional information Lanez could offer about the events that took place that night.
Tory’s abrupt announcement that he will be ending his silence on the matter comes after Megan confirmed that she was shot by the Canadian rhymer last month, during an incident that took place in July. In an Instagram live, Megan named Tory as her attacker amidst claims that Peterson has been lying about how the shooting went down to gain favor from angry fans.
“Since y’all hoes so worried ’bout it,” Meg said. “Yes, this nigga Tory shot me. You shot me. And you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs lying and shit. Stop lying. Why lie? I don’t understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you dragging it. You really fuckin’ dragging it. Muthafuckas talkin’ ’bout I hit this nigga. I never hit you. Muthafuckas was like, ‘Oh, she mad ’cause he was tryna fuck with Kylie.’ No, I wasn’t. You dry shot me.”
A few weeks later, a report emerged suggesting Tory apologized for shooting Megan via text message. According to TMZ, Lanez blamed his intoxication on the reason things got so heated between the two artists.
