Tory Lanez reportedly assaulted August Alsina at a concert on Saturday, September 17th. Tory responded recently, refuting the charges. Tory has now been removed from the tour after Rip Michaels confirmed that he genuinely injured August.

TMZ reports, that Tory Lanez will no longer perform at the “Fall Back In Love Comedy & Music Jam” following his reported confrontation with August Alsina. Over the weekend, the “I Luv This Sh*t” singer turned to social media to disclose that the Toronto-born rapper had punched him in the face, leaving him with a bloody lip and bruised face. Although Tory disputed the accusations, evidence showed the Chixtape star attempting to greet August before the incident.

Rip Michaels, the tour’s creator, corroborated August’s accusations that he was assaulted by Tory after the Chicago event on Monday, September 19, and has decided to drop the 30-year-old rapper off the tour completely. August missed his performance the day following the incident according to Michaels, because the assault put him in urgent care. 

There was no fight. [August] was sucker punched by Tory Lanez.

The comedian also stated that, while Tory denied the claims, he was extremely sorry after the confrontation. August allegedly made up for the missing concert by offering fans free tickets. The quarrel comes in the midst of Tory preparing to go to trial for his felony assault allegation against Megan Thee Stallion after allegedly shooting her in the foot in 2020.

The rapper/singer’s trial date was rescheduled earlier this week since his lawyer is now working on another case. There is no news on whether August will press charges against Tory and his team. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
