Megan Thee Stallion’s Attorney Claims Tory Lanez’s Team Is Trying to Discredit Her
On the night of Sept. 25, Tory Lanez decided to drop a response to all the furor surrounding the Megan Thee Stallion shooting incident. Earlier that day, he hit Twitter and promised fans he’d be breaking his silence, and many expected him to appear on Instagram Live. Instead, he dropped new music.
He used the format to share his own account of what happened between him and the “WAP” rapper, and his bars trended on social media well into the next day. Fans awaited a response from Megan’s team, and one of her attorneys recently spoke out.
Tory Lanez released an entire album about Megan Thee Stallion
Tory Lanez had the internet buzzing with his SoundCloud-delivered album, Daystar. 17 tracks are laced with lines about his relationship with Megan Thee Stallion and what allegedly happened on July 12 when she got shot.
In a nutshell, he denied it, and waxed poetic about their bond, their supposed love, and stated that Megan’s team has been trying to frame him for a crime he didn’t commit.
Not only did he question her injuries, but Tory Lanez also dissed other celebrities who called him out about the shooting during the past two months. He even rapped about his infatuation for Kylie Jenner, but everything tied into Megan.
Tory Lanez project receives mixed reactions
Fans were divided about the album. Many eviscerated Tory Lanez for coming at Megan Thee Stallion without acknowledging her trauma. Some analyzed the lyrics and deduced that he shot her since he took too long to respond and didn’t name a shooter.
Others thought the timing was horrible in the wake of the Breonna Taylor decision, and they had no interest in financially supporting the album by streaming it.
Complex called the project “terrible” and “contemptible” and highlighted lyrics where Tory seemingly contradicted himself about the incident.
On the flip side, some fans sided with Tory Lanez or began to ponder Megan Thee Stallion’s account. Already a publicly debated subject before songs, the case is parking a new wave of chatter on social media.
Tory Lanez is back to commenting on posts, and the musical saga he’s promoting is not going over well with Megan’s team.
Megan Thee Stallion’s attorney issues statement about ‘smear campaign’
While alleged medical records and insider stories are making the rounds online, there are also accusations flying that Tory Lanez’s team is planting stories in the media to cast doubts on Megan Thee Stallion’s credibility.
TMZ obtained copies of the purported fake texts and emails, and Megan’s team asserts that in one case, Tory’s reps posed as a LIV Nightclub promoter. One message reportedly claimed her management had something to do with the civil lawsuit filed against Tory by Prince from Love & Hip Hop: Miami.
A separate phony email supposedly urges media members to view a YouTube video from a bodyguard who vouched for Tory Lanez as a non-violent person.
Megan’s attorney Alex Spiro issued a statement to Variety. “We have been made aware of manipulated text messages and invented email accounts that have been disseminated to the media in a calculated attempt to peddle a false narrative about the events that occurred on July the 12. A smear campaign can’t change the truth,” he said.
Megan Thee Stallion has yet to comment directly about Tory Lanez album, but she’s currently on the cover of Time as one of the year’s most influential people. Meanwhile, Tory’s camp denies any wrongdoing.
