Rap crooner Tory Lanez could spend the next 20-plus years behind bars. New reports claim the hip-hop singer has officially been charged with shooting his estranged friend Megan Thee Stallion in July 2020 following a party with reality TV star Kylie Jenner.
Tory Lanez Charged + Faces 22 Years
According to reports, Lanez is charged in connection to the shooting incident with Stallion. The decision follows Tory recently putting out his DAYSTAR album proclaiming his innocence.
The L.A. County D.A.’s Office hit him with one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and one count of carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. The D.A. also alleges Tory inflicted great bodily injury. If convicted, the rapper/singer faces up to 22 years and 8 months in prison. As we reported … the prosecutors had said they were mulling over a charge of felony assault with a firearm against Tory after Megan said she was shot back in July. Remember, Tory had been arrested but only charged with possession of a firearm. Prosecutors are now explicitly pointing the finger at Tory as the man who pulled the trigger … leaving Meg with a gruesome foot injury. (TMZ)
