The Tory Lanez/Megan Thee Stallion shooting saga continues as things got crazy last week when Lanez released his “Daystar” album and denied ever shooting Megan. Megan’s team also accused Lanez’s of launching a “smear campaign” against her to media outlets.
According to Billboard now, sources close to this situation say that Lanez’ team impersonated members of 300 Entertainment, the record label that Megan is signed to. Emails were also sent at this point to “campaign” for Lanez. Texts between Lanez and Megan were also reportedly fabricated.
A fake email was also seen that impersonated 300 Head of Creative, Kevin Leong. The email stated that Megan did not want to testify against Lanez. 300 has since released a statement regarding Leong.
“In this day and age, digital security is of utmost importance. The email impersonation of our Head of Creative Kevin Leong, with the intent to disseminate false information has been brought to our attention and we are working diligently on Megan’s behalf to get to the bottom of the matter.”
So far, a rep from Lanez has denied any impersonation occurring. They also released a statement to Billboard as they are launching an investigation as to who created these fake emails.
“The only commentary which has been made on this topic was the creative output on the album. We are investigating who could be sending these false emails and intend to take action against them.”
Billboard went on to detail what supposedly happened the night in July of Lanez allegedly shooting Megan after a house party in Hollywood Hills. As many new, an argument ensued in the car that Lanez and Megan were in.
”[Lanez] was supposed to be dropping [Megan] off at home with her friend, and an argument ensued. He started calling her names. So she said she wanted to get out of the car. She got out of the car, walked away from the car, and at a short distance, he told her, ‘dance bitch’, pulled out a gun and shot [at] her four times. Two times hit her, one in each foot, and the other two missed her.”
Lanez went on to text Megan saying “I love you. Please. I was just drunk. Call me. I wanna make this work.” He then began trying to call her managers and security guards to try to get in contact with her. As of now, Lanez has only been charged for carrying a concealed weapon inside of a firearm, which is a felony.
