Megan Thee Stallion was shot by Tory Lanez, and he was found guilty.
On Friday, Tory Lanez was found guilty of planning to shoot Megan Thee Stallion in 2020.
Lanez, who is 30, was found guilty on all three counts of felony in the shooting that happened in Los Angeles after an argument. He could get up to 22 years in prison and be sent back to Canada, where he was born. Lanez was out on bail, but he was arrested on Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The "Luv" singer was found guilty of using a gun to hurt someone, firing a gun without thinking, and having an unregistered gun in a car.
Megan, whose real name is Megan Pete and who is 27, said that Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, shot her in Los Angeles on July 12, 2020, after a party. She said that the two artists had a fight in a car that Lanez owned.
Megan says that when she got out of the car, Lanez shot at her feet and told her to "dance b—-h." Megan was taken to the hospital after what happened, and doctors said they took bullet pieces out of her feet.
Megan also said that Lanez offered her $1 million to keep quiet about what happened, but she didn't take him up on the offer.
Megan said that the shooting had "messed up my whole life" when she went to court. She said that the rap industry had gotten together behind Lanez and tried to shut her up because she spoke out.
"If I had known I was going to have to go through this torture, I wish he had just shot me," she said in court.
Lanez always said that he wasn't the one who shot at Megan. He didn't say anything at the trial. In the two years between the incident and the trial, Lanez couldn't talk about the case or Megan because of a court order. When he couldn't keep his mouth shut on social media in February 2022, he broke the order and his bail was raised.
During the trial, Lanez's defense team said that Megan's old friend Kelsey Harris pulled the trigger. On the night of the incident, Harris was also in the car with the two artists. She was supposed to testify on Megan's side because she sent a text that night that said "Tory shot Meg." Instead, while on the stand, she contradicted what she had said before.
The jury took about a day and a half to decide who should win.
