Rapper Tory Lanez in Megan Thee Stallion killing spree again

Rapper Tory Lanez was briefly jailed after a judge said he broke a protective order in an assault case in which he is accused of shooting fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion in the feet.

Anez, 29, real name Daystar Peterson, was handcuffed in a Los Angeles courtroom and taken to jail. He posted bail and was released a few hours later.

At the hearing, Superior Court Judge David Herriford found that Peterson had violated orders not to contact or harass Megan Thee Stallion and not to discuss evidence with outside parties.

While Peterson did not contact Megan Megan Thee Stallion directly, Judge Herriford said some of his tweets appeared to be clear messages to her and ordered Peterson not to mention her on any social media.

Peterson’s attorney, Shawn Holley, said in court that he gave no information to a Twitter user who posted in February that Peterson’s DNA was not found on the gun in the case.

Ms Holley said the now-deleted tweet was not entirely accurate. She said an investigation showed there were four DNA contributors on the gun, making it inconclusive if Peterson’s DNA was found. She said his DNA was definitely not found in the gun’s magazine.

Prosecutors had requested that Peterson’s bail be released in full or increased to $5 million (£3.8 million).

“We are pleased that the court denied these outrageous requests,” Ns Holly said after the hearing.

The judge increased bail to $350,000 (£268,000) from the $250,000 (£191,000) Peterson posted after his arrest in 2020.

A September hearing date was selected, and Peterson was told to return for a hearing in June. He has pleaded not guilty.

Peterson, Megan Thee Stallion and others were in an SUV in the Hollywood Hills after a party July 12, 2020 when authorities allege he shot her feet during an argument after she exited the vehicle.

After months of speculation and publicity surrounding the incident, Peterson was charged with assault in October 2020, and in December last year a judge determined there was enough evidence for him to go to trial.

After his initial arrest, Peterson tweeted that “the truth will come out.”

The Canadian rapper has had a successful streak of mixtapes and major label records since beginning his career in 2009, with his last two albums reaching the top 10 on the Billboard chart.

Megan Thee Stallion was already a huge rising star at the time of the incident and has been successful ever since.

She won a Grammy for Best New Artist in 2021 and had number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 with her own song “Savage” with Beyonce and as a guest on Cardi B’s WAP.
