Megan Thee Stallion Responds to Tory Lanez Dropped Charges Rumors
On Thursday (Jan. 21), Megan Thee Stallion spoke on rumors suggesting that she dropped charges against Tory Lanez regarding the shooting incident that took place in July of 2020. In a tweet shared by the 25-year-old rhymer, Megan proposed that the latest news regarding the case was yet another ploy to derail the upcoming trial.
“AT THIS POINT IM GETTING ANNOYED ! STOP BELIEVING EVERYTHING YOU READ ON THE MF INTERNET. Imagine how I feel waking every day seeing people LIE and turn my trauma into a joke ? That whole team figures out ways to create doubt with my story every week and the media eats it up” she wrote on Twitter.
Joe Coscarelli, a music reporter with the New York Times also confirmed the reports were false. The accusation that Meg had decided to drop the charge against Tory came from the misguided reporting of a blog. The story later grew legs after social media began commenting on the reports. In a tweet shared by the esteemed journalist, Coscarelli confirmed the next court date was set for mid-February.
“A rep for Tory Lanez says it is NOT TRUE that charges against him in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting were dropped: “The blog that posted this info is wrong. I assume the docket hasn’t been updated … The next hearing date is in mid-February.,” he shared.
In the same thread of tweets from the Houston native, Megan insisted Tory Lanez was indeed the abuser who shot her months ago. She also stood her ground in confirming the court date against Lanez was only postponed due to the presidential inauguration of Joe Biden.
“Y’all can’t tell when shit fake news? Y’all still don’t see an ABUSER picking with me ? The first court date got pushed back bc of the inauguration but I can’t wait until the MF FACTS come out !,” Megan continued. “Bitch you shot me AND MY STORY NOT CHANGING AND BITCH YOU GOING TO JAIL”
Lastly, Megan mentioned how she had been villainized for speaking out against her alleged abuse. “How tf I get shot now I’m the worlds biggest mf villain !? All y’all pussy ass niggas and pick me ass hoes GONE EAT YO MF WORDS,”she wrote.
Tory Lanez pleaded not guilty to felony assault and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle back in November. He was hit with the charges in October of 2020. Tory, who wasn’t physically present at the arraignment and made an appearance by phone, was ordered to surrender any guns in his possession and had a bail set at $190,000. A protective order was also put in place, enforcing that Tory stay at least 100 yards away from Megan.
