Rapper Tory Lanez is expected to be sentenced on Tuesday for shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot in 2020. Lanez pleaded guilty to one count of felony assault with a semiautomatic firearm in September 2022. He faces a maximum sentence of 22 years in prison.
The shooting occurred on July 12, 2020, after Megan Thee Stallion and Lanez left a party together in Los Angeles. Megan Thee Stallion later revealed that Lanez had shot her in the foot after an argument. She underwent surgery to remove the bullets and sustained permanent injuries.
Lanez initially denied shooting Megan Thee Stallion, but he changed his plea to guilty in September 2022. In a statement, Lanez said he was “deeply sorry” for his actions and that he “takes full responsibility for what happened.”
Megan Thee Stallion has not publicly commented on Lanez’s sentencing. However, she has spoken out about the shooting in the past, saying that it was a “life-changing event” that has had a “profound impact” on her life.
The sentencing hearing is scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday. It is expected to be a high-profile event, with both Megan Thee Stallion and Lanez expected to be in attendance.
