The internet was flooded with buzz about the Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion case today. The situation has garnered attention in hip-hop world and beyond. Tweets regarding what’s going inside the courtroom made their way to social media.
Back in July 2020, Megan was reportedly shot in the foot during an altercation. The rapper immediately took Instagram Live claiming the person responsible was Lanez. Since then it has been a rollercoaster ride of courtroom drama.
Lanez’s attorney Shawn Holley alleges that the bullet fragments that were taken from Megan’s ankles are missing. This elicited a passionate response from the general public, polarizing people in the hip-hop industry.
In the latest update, Shawn Holley released a statement about what occurred inside the courtroom and clarified reports from independent witnesses. Reports suggest that Megan allegedly got into an argument with her former best friend Kelsey Nicole.
“Today in court it was revealed that an independent witness reported to the LAPD that he observed a fight break out between the two women in the car, just prior to the shooting. Megan herself corroborated this account, telling officers shortly after the incident that the argument was between her and the other female passenger in the car. The independent witness also told officers that the muzzle flash was closest to the other female, which is corroborated by the gunshot residue found on the other female’s hands. It was further established that Megan gave several inconsistent accounts of what happened that night and that she omitted key information to the police. We look forward to the opportunity to cross examine her at trial about the numerous inconsistencies in her story.”
As the news found it’s way to social media, Megan fired back at people who were trying to make light of her experience. She claimed that after being shot, the focus of some news headlines were dismissing the fact that she was attacked with a weapon.
TMZ reported an update adding a quote from Holley where the attorney claimed, “On cross-examination, Detective Stogner admitted that the bullet fragments allegedly removed from Ms. Pete’s ankles cannot be located.”
This sparked a new wave of speculations. Meanwhile, Kelsey Nicole dismissed all the allegations against her saying it’s “all cap.”
