Tory Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, has been relocated to California Correctional Institute, a super-maximum security facility in Tehachapi, California, following a stint at North Kern State Prison.
“Reports that Lanez was moved to general population at North Kern are false,” journalist Meghann Cuniff posted on X, adding that California Correctional Institute operates as a supermax prison where the concept of “general population” varies from other facilities.
California Correctional Institute is in Tehachapi, about 85 miles southeast of Kern.

Lanez’s legal team had initially hoped for him to be placed in the general population at North Kern State Prison. They sought a more “normal” prison experience for him, one that would allow interaction with other inmates in the yard.
Tory Lanez was found guilty of three felony charges in December 2022, including assault with a semiautomatic firearm shooting and injuring Megan Thee Stallion, having a concealed and loaded firearm in a vehicle, and discharge of a firearm with gross negligence.
After the sentencing, Meg said: “If the defendant would have spent a quarter of the past few years showing contrition for his crimes, perhaps I could have healed sooner. Instead, I spiraled into a dark and angry place where I thought my life was worthless, and I felt loneliness and shame. Slowly but surely, I’m healing and coming back, but I will never be the same.”
Reports also recently emerged that Lanez was living the life of a “loner” behind bars due to him being confined to “Administrative Segregation” as a result of his celebrity status.
