Audio of Tory Lanez allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion during their drunken July 2020 argument has surfaced online.
The footage serves as the latest batch of evidence to hit the internet after the Canadian rapper was found guilty of shooting Megan in the feet last week.
The brief clip was recorded on a security camera inside a nearby residence, and five gunshots can be heard being fired at a relatively steady and consistent rate.
During the trial, Tory’s lawyer claimed that it was Megan’s friend and assistant, Kelsey Harris, who shot the rapper in a jealous rage over the women’s duel romantic interest in Lanez and other men.
A neighbor who witnessed the shooting testified that he saw an initial muzzle flash near two women fighting, then a “very agitated” man alleged to be Tory “firing everywhere.”
Tory Lanez (real name Daystar Peterson) was found guilty on all three counts brought against him on December 23, which included felony assault with a semiautomatic firearm, possession of a concealed, unregistered firearm, and discharging a firearm with gross negligence.
While Lanez has adamantly maintained his innocence, a phone call between the 30-year-old rapper and Kelsey Harris that leaked on Friday (December 30) found the former apologizing to both Kelsey and Meg while in jail after the shooting.
The audio, which prosecutors argued was Tory’s apology for shooting Megan, has been described as the most important piece of evidence in Lanez’s conviction.
“I know she’s probably never ever gonna talk to me ever again but… bruh, I just want you to know, I was just so fucking drunk, I don’t even know what the fuck was going on, deadass. I’d never do some shit like that,” he said in the call.
“Regardless, that’s not gonna make anything right and that’s not gonna make my actions right, but I’m deeply sorry for that. I never even move like that at all. For real, for real, dawg.”
“I know,” Harris replied with a sigh. “It was a lot, it was a lot that happened.”
Tory continued: “A whole lot, bruh. I feel crazy, but what happened happened already; I can’t take it back. I’m just telling y’all I’m sorry, bruh. I think we were just too drunk.”
The trial was filled with memorable moments throughout its 10-day run. Kelsey Harris had been expected to corroborate Megan’s account of the shooting, but instead delivered a testimony that directly contradicted previous statements she gave prosecutors.
Whereas Megan Thee Stallion told the court that Tory had offered her $1 million in exchange for her silence about the incident, Harris told both the prosecution and the defense that Tory had never offered her any money.
Tory Lanez, who opted not to testify, faces up to 22 years and eight months in prison, as well as deportation to his native Canada. He is due to be sentenced next month.
