Tory Lanez Asks Court For Permission To Publicly Speak On Megan Thee Stallion Case
He reportedly asked the court to change a previous order that blocks him from talking about current charges he’s facing for allegedly shooting the “Savage” rapper. He was charged for assault with a semiautomatic firearm, personal use of a firearm, and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. Each of the charges is a felony. He’s also looking at a “gun allegation and that he personally inflicted great bodily injury,”
His request comes after she called him out on Twitter earlier this month. She took to the social media platform to deny reports that the charges against him were dismissed and wrote,
“Y’all can’t tell when s— fake news? Y’all still don’t see an ABUSER picking with me ? The first court date got pushed back bc of the inauguration but I can’t wait until the MF FACTS come out !”
“B*tch you shot me AND MY STORY NOT CHANGING AND B*TCH YOU GOING TO JAIL”

Now, Tory Lanez wants the right to respond, despite a previous court order that restricted him from speaking on the ordeal.
His lawyer Shawn Holley wrote in court documents,
“Due to limitations placed on Mr. Peterson and his counsel under the protective order, Mr. Peterson has been unable to respond to Megan P.’s inflammatory statements or to provide his own clarifying statements.”
“Nothing could be further from the truth.”
He also said there’s evidence that will be presented to clear his name.
“Her claims are and will be sharply disputed and contradicted by the evidence in this case.”
He said there is “mitigating” proof including “gunshot residue implicating others.”
He added that Tory Lanez’s
“failure to respond to [Megan Thee Stallion’s] inflammatory and misleading statements may be interpreted as conceding to her claims.”
Megan Thee Stallion’s lawyer Alex Spiro has since responded. He said on her behalf,
“Did the motion fail to mention that there was gunshot residue on his hands or that he texted her ‘Sorry?’ I haven’t had a chance to read it.”
