Megan Thee Stallion Says Tory Lanez Deserve Harsh Sentence In Victim Statement
Written by 1.02010 on August 8, 2023
A victim impact statement from Megan Thee Stallion to sentencing Judge David Herriford is asking that Tory Lanez be sent to jail and given the harshest punishment possible.
It’s the first time Megan is speaking on the trial since Tory Lanez was found guilty of shooting her in December 2022. A hearing for Lanez’s sentencing began on Monday (August 7), with Megan deciding not to show up in court but her victim impact sentence being read out by prosecutor Kathy Ta.
According to the Houston rapper, she could not make it to the sentencing because she struggled to deal with the after-effects of the shooting. The rapper said she didn’t want her absence to be seen as anything more than her preserving her mental well-being and added that since she was shot, she has not “experienced a single day of peace.”
“He lied to anyone that would listen… he not only shot me, he made a mockery of my trauma. He tried to position himself as a victim and set out to destroy my character and my soul.”
Megan Thee Stallion added, “He lied to anyone that would listen and paid bloggers to disseminate false information about the case on social media. He released music videos and songs to damage my character and continue his crusade.”
“At first, he tried to deny the shooting ever happened. Then, he attempted to place the blame on my former best friend. In his tantrum of lies, he’s blamed the system, blamed the press and, as of late, he’s using his childhood trauma to shield himself and avoid culpability… for once, the defendant must be forced to face the full consequences of his heinous actions and face justice.”
