In the latest development in the Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion situation, Lanez took to his Instagram Live and addressed the circumstances surrounding the alleged shooting incident. On Tuesday (October 20, 2020), Lanez appeared live on Instagram and spoke to his fans \about what went down the day the alleged shooting took place.

The 'Say It' rapper started the live session saying, "For the last three months of my life, I’ve been in this place where I’ve been bashed, I’ve been cut through – just people every single day just coming at me, coming at me, coming at me." He continued, "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 is are not true."

The 28-year-old rapper then said, "It's falsified information, it's false information and it's not accurate information. 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."

Reactions

Many Twitter users started to question Megan after Lanez's video. One user tweeted, "Now Megan...tell the truth...what actually happened that night? Cause Tory said he ain’t shoot you," while another questioned, "How do you get shot in both feet and twerking two weeks after? Where’s the emergency surgery paperwork? Where’s the X-ray? You don’t need a medical degree to understand that it takes months or years for real bullet injuries to heal Megan was injured but not like the way she claim."

A user added, "Tory innocent," while another tweeted, "He made sense though. Your statements didn’t. Sorry but that’s fact."

In Megan's defense, one user wrote, "Don’t even respond. Just press charges and let your lawyer do the rest!" while another, slamming Lanez, said, "Tory Lanez has said everything but “I did not shoot her” he’s literally just going in circles trying to make her look like a liar, trying to make her look bad but won’t say he did not do it."

Earlier in September, Lanez released an album titled 'Daystar' on which he addressed the shooting. At one point he rapped, "How the f**k you get shot in your foot, don't hit no bones or tendons?" Lanez also tweeted about the charges saying, "The truth will come to the light...I have all faith in God to show that". He allegedly shot Megan in July after a party and was charged on October 8, 2020, in connection with the incident. Lanez faces 22 years in prison.

Megan wrote about the incident in a New York Times op-ed: "Even as a victim, I have been met with skepticism and judgment. The way people have publicly questioned and debated whether I played a role in my own violent assault proves that my fears about discussing what happened were, unfortunately, warranted."
