Variety reports that Megan's attorney, Alex Spiro, said that Tory's team has constructed a narrative against Megan, who accused Tory of shooting her in both of her feet. "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," Variety reports of Spiro's statement. "A smear campaign can’t change the truth."
Tory Lanez spends the majority of Daystar addressing the July 12 shooting incident that left Megan Thee Stallion hospitalized with gunshot wounds in both her feet. Much of his lyrical insinuations and statements refute that he was who pulled the trigger on Meg. Tory, who was arrested during the incident on the night of July 12 for having a concealed weapon, suggests that he is being "framed" by her team for the shooting. Most emphatically, he rapped on "Money Over Fallouts" that he's the victim who is being plotted against.
However, Megan, who was the first to speak up about the incident, has held firm to her statement that Tory was the shooting culprit. "Yes, this n***a Tory shot me," said Megan on Instagram last month. "You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people to [talk to] these blogs, lying and shit. Stop lying!"
A representative for the Canadian rapper has denied that his team has attempted to spread false information over social media and emails. "A representative of Tory strongly denies sending emails or otherwise creating a false narrative," they replied. "The only commentary which has been made on this topic was the creative output on the album. We are investigating who could be sending these false emails and intend to take action against them."
One of the emails that Megan's reps mentioned included a three-minute video of a man who says he's Lanez's former bodyguard and that the rapper had never been violent towards women. Sources, meanwhile, have alleged that Tory Lanez told Megan, "Dance, bitch," before firing four shots at her feet. After the incident, he also allegedly sent a text message apologizing to her and offered her money in order to cover up the truth of the incident.
