In Megan vs. Tory, he says, ‘She’s still my friend.’ She says, ‘This N***a genuinely crazy.’
On Instagram Live Tuesday, Tory Lanez again disputed that he shot Megan Thee Stallion in an alleged July 12 altercation.
The shooting resulted in the “WAP” rapper being treated at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles for injuries to both of her feet.
In videos captured and reposted on social media, Lanez says, “I don’t ever wanna come off like I’m here to bash this girl or I’m here to talk down about this girl or ever be at a place where, like, I’m disrespecting her because to me, as a person, she’s still my friend. No matter what, even if she doesn’t look at me like that, I look at her like she’s still my friend.”
He said that details of the incident are “falsified information,” “false information” and “not accurate information.”
Lanez, a Canadian citizen, has been charged with one count of assault with a semi-automatic firearm and one count of carrying a loaded, concealed firearm in a vehicle by the Los Angeles County District Attorney. He faces up to 22 years in prison if convicted.
In what observers assume is a response to his claims, Megan Thee Stallion tweeted only four words: “This N***a genuinely crazy.”
During his Instagram Live moment, Lanez said: “It’s crazy because the whole thing about it is – when this whole debacle, or whatever you call it, came about, the whole time was like … She knows what happened, I know what happened, and we know that what you’re saying and what the alleged things and the alleged accusations of my name … are not true.”
The issue has polarized rap fans into groups that support MTS and those who support Lanez.
Megan has actively urged people to “protect Black women” in an Oct. 3 appearance on Saturday Night Live, as well as in a recent essay for The New York Times.
Lanez disputed the “narrative” that he doesn’t support Black women, pointing to his previous music releases, including his five studio-LP Chixtape series.
His most recent album, Daystar, attacked Megan Thee Stallion, Kehlani and JoJo. The latter two singers removed him from remix versions of songs after the shooting allegations.
