Rapper Tory Lanez charged with filming Megan Thee Stallion


Lanez, whose legal name is Daystar Peterson, faces one count of assault with a semi-automatic firearm and one count of carrying a loaded firearm concealed in a vehicle, said the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office in a statement.

Lanez, then 27, was driving in an SUV in Hollywood Hills on July 12 when he quarreled with a 25-year-old woman, prosecutors said in the statement. He is accused of repeatedly shooting at her feet when she got out of the car and injuring her, the statement said.

Megan Thee Stallion, real name Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, is identified as “Megan P” in the criminal complaint.

CNN has reached out to representatives for Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion for comment.

In August, the “Savage” star publicly accused Lanez of shooting her in the feet. She opened up about the July incident on an Instagram Live on her verified account. She also posted a graphic photo of her injury, which she then deleted.

She had spoken on social media about the “super scary” shooting and thanked her fans for their support, but initially did not name the person she said shot her.

An indictment of Lanez is scheduled for October 13. If found guilty on both counts, Lanez could face a maximum sentence of 22 years and eight months in state prison.
