Speaking to the judge, Lanez said that he took “accountability” for his actions, which made some fans believe he was admitting to shooting Megan Thee Stallion.
In the Canadian rapper’s new statement, he denies shooting Meg.
Peterson wrote in his statement, “I have never let a hard time intimidate me. I will never let no jail time eliminate me. Regardless of how they try to spin my words, I have always maintained my innocence and I always will.”
“This week in court I took responsibility for all verbal and intimate moments that I shared with the parties involved… That’s it.”
He continued, “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 that I did not do.”
“I’ve faced adversity my whole life and every time it looked like I would lose, I came out on top. This is nothing but another moment where my back is against the wall and I refuse to stop fighting till I come out victorious. Tough times don’t last, tough people do.”
He ended his statement by thanking his family, friends and fans for their support, adding “see you soon”.
On August 20, 2020, Megan Thee Stallion claimed that Tory Lanez was the gunman who shot her in the foot following a July 12 2020, pool party at Kylie Jenner’s house. The trial began on December 5, 2022, after the original September 14 start date was delayed due to Lanez’s lawyer being preoccupied with a separate trial.
Lanez will have nearly a year reduced from his 10-year sentence due to the time he has already served and is also facing deportation.
