While the dust won’t settle any time soon for Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez, as their summer shooting situation continues to plague both sides, the bizarre story moves forward with the recent Lanez arraignment being postponed and a restraining order put in place.
Just last week Lanez was officially charged by the Los Angeles County District Attorney with felony assault in the shooting case, that left Megan Thee Stallion wounded and pressured to prove her side of the story after Lanez’ conflicting take on the situation, following his ‘DAYSTAR’ album release. Tory faces up to 22 years behind bars and while his arraignment was for today, Tuesday October 13, his lawyer’s requested continuance was granted, under the judge’s condition of a protective order against Tory that demands he stays 100 yards away from the Houston-bred rapper.
The news of Tory’s protective order came on the heels of Megan Thee Stallion’s op-ed with the New York Times where Meg emotionally proclaimed, “protect Black women”. The rapper recently hit up Saturday Night Live where she criticized the grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case and continued her vehement stance on protecting black men and women.
In the New York Times Op-ed Meg speaks on the violence often waged against Black women as she describes her experience with Tory Lanez saying, “After a party, I was shot twice as I walked away from him. We were not in a relationship. Truthfully, I was shocked that I ended up in that place.”
