The evidence provided was enough to convince the court otherwise, resulting in Tory’s guilty verdict and now sentencing. Megan Thee Stallion gave an emotional account of the night of the shooting, reliving the events that transpired and standing firm in her allegations against Tory Lanez.
During the sentencing Tory said of Megan “[she is] someone I still care for dearly to this day,” he added, “We both lost our mothers. We would sit there and drink, and drink until we got numb…I said some very immature things that I shouldn’t have said. I revealed some secrets I shouldn’t have revealed”
