Reuters is reporting that " Canadian rapper Tory Lanez was sentenced on Tuesday to 10 years in prison, more than seven months after he was convicted of shooting fellow musical artist Megan Thee Stallion during an argument in 2020, local media reported.
"Judge David Herriford handed down the sentence to the 30-year-old rapper, whose legal name is Daystar Peterson, during a hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court that had been pushed back by delays, USA Today reported. On Dec. 23, a jury found Lanez guilty of carrying a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle, assault with a semiautomatic handgun and discharging a firearm with gross negligence."
Lanez was accused of shooting Grammy-winning rapper Megan Thee Stallion, 28, injuring her feet after a pool party in the Hollywood Hills in July 2020. The shooting was preceded by an argument that became heated when the two began attacking each other's music careers, she told the court during the two-week trial.
He shot a girl he was dating in the foot because they got in an argument and she insulted his career. Yo man you are a f*ck up. That is some serious Dr Phil sh*t right there. Real men don't shoot girls. Own it.
