Tory Lanez House Arrest Axed Ahead Of Megan Thee Stallion Trial

Tory Lanez is a free man–from house arrest. According to Rolling Stone senior reporter Nancy Dillon, a judge granted the artist release as preparations for the Megan Thee Stallion shooting trial.

“I’m doing this mainly for the trial preparation aspect,” Judge David Herriford said, per Dillon.

Jury selection has begun in what will likely be one of the year’s biggest celebrity trials. Opening statements are set for December 12 in Los Angeles. This is the city where prosecutors say Lanez shot at Megan’s “feet several times and wounding her” in July 2020. At the time, she, real name Megan Pete, was traveling in a vehicle with Tory, former friend Kelsey and a driver after leaving a party at Kylie Jenner’s home.

Months later, in October, prosecutors charged Tory with one count of felony assault with a semiautomatic firearm and one count of carrying a loaded, unregistered handgun in a vehicle. If convicted, he faces up to 22 years in prison.

In April, Tory was arrested for violating a no-contact order in the shooting case by tweeting about Megan. The judge set his bail at $350,000. By October, he was back under arrest–this time in his home.

Two conditions of Tory’s release in April were to stay 100 yards from Megan and out of legal trouble. But, he allegedly attacked August Alsina in early September during a confrontation, sparking an independent criminal investigation and violating his bail terms.

Megan, who has faced accusations of fabricating her injuries, recently blasted Drake for seemingly using her experience as a lyric. At the time, her lawyer Alex Spiro came to her defense, saying Drake should explain himself.

“She’s confident in that because the evidence is confident in that because these things are irrefutable and can’t be cross-examined and truth usually comes out in courtrooms and I’m confident that it will here,” Spiro told TMZ.
