Tory Lanez Pleads Not Guilty to Megan Thee Stallion Shooting
Earlier this year, Tory Lanez was accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion while the two were en route to a party. Tory was charged with felony assault charges and has today pleaded not guilty.

The Canadian rapper born Daystar Peterson pleaded not guilty to two felony counts: assault with a semiautomatic firearm — personal use of a firearm; and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.

Shortly after he made his plea at the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, Lanez shared the following tweet:
 
Earlier this week, Megan Thee Stallion (real name Megan Jovon Ruth Pete) opened up about her experience in an interview with GQ. The rapper said she had tried to leave a car heading to a party after an argument broke out. Her phone battery was dead and she was in a bikini, so she decided to get back in the car. Then, she claimed she tried to walk away a second time when Lanez allegedly started shooting at her.

Lanez is due back in court on January 20. If convicted, he could face up to 23 years in prison.
