LOS ANGELES, CA – Tory Lanez has been embroiled in controversy since his alleged involvement in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting last July. With a proverbial target on his back, the Canadian rapper has been subjected to all kinds of criticism since the incident.
Now, Lanez believes a recent car crash was no accident. On Thursday (June 24), footage of two wrecked vehicles was posted to Twitter and Lanez soon confirmed he’d been a passenger in one of them.
“We almost just died,” the voice on camera says. “We got in a car accident in the fucking Uber. Look at that. Oh my god.”
Lanez later tweeted, “It almost felt like someone knew to crash into us. Strange.”
Tory Lanez likely has a reason to be paranoid. He’s currently facing a felony assault charge for the Megan Thee Stallion shooting incident and has angered many of her fans.
Last October, the L.A. County D.A.’s Office charged Lanez with a felony count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and one count of carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. The Los Angeles Police Department also accused him of inflicting “great bodily injury” on the “Savage” rapper.
But Lanez has maintained his innocence in the matter, going as far as to release the DAYSTAR last September in which he denies shooting Megan on multiple songs throughout the 17-track project. On the album’s opener “Money Over Fallouts,” he sounds shocked she’d ever point the finger at him.
“Can’t cry now, I’m gonna laugh later,” he rapped. “Girl you had the nerve to write that statement on that affidavit, knowing I don’t do it/But I’m coming at my truest, tryin’ to keep this shit 200 with ya, shorty/I can’t prove it but them people in yo’ ear/They the true ones that I feel that really got you thinking Tory Lanez would do you in for real.”
Megan The Stallion scored a small victory in the case in February when a judge handed down a ruling at Los Angeles Superior Court, rejecting a motion from Lanez’s legal team asking for permission to publicly speak on the case. He has yet to go to trial.
