Tory Lanez has been found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion and, this week, was sentenced to 10 years behind bars. Now, the rapper has released a statement saying that he's innocent and "refuses to apologize."

In the post on Instagram, he wrote about the trial, "In no way shape or form was I apologizing for the charges I'm being wrongfully convicted of. I remain on the stance that I refuse to apologize for something I did not do."

He said that he would "refuse to stop fighting till I come out victorious."

In a statement read in court earlier this week (August 7), Megan Thee Stallion wrote about the impact of the shooting on her life, as well as the ensuing smear campaign to discredit her. "I've been tormented and terrorized," she wrote. "He lied to anyone that would listen... He paid bloggers to disseminate false information, he treated my trauma like a joke when I could've been dead. He blamed the system, he blamed the press, and as of late he is using his childhood trauma to justify his actions. His crime warrants the full weight of the law."
