Opening statements in the trial of Tory Lanez, the rapper accused of shooting fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion in the foot, began in Los Angeles on Monday, December 12, 2022.
The Canadian rapper and singer is facing charges related to a July 2020 incident where he is accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion. Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, faces more than 22 years in prison if he is convicted on all three felony counts he is currently charged with.

Kelsey Harris—Megan’s former friend and assistant—was apparently with the two musicians before, during, and after the shooting. “Kelsey will tell you that she just saw her close friend get shot by the defendant,” Bott said, reportedly revealing that Harris will take the stand. In the courtroom, according to the report, prosecutors also showed a visual of three text messages that Harris is said to have sent to Megan’s bodyguard Justin Edison in the five minutes following the shooting: “Help,” “Tory Shot Meg,” and “911.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, Bott also played a portion of a voicemail in which Tory Lanez apologized and acknowledged he was drunk at the time of the shooting, but did not admit to discharging the gun. Bott also reportedly shared a text that Lanez sent Megan, reading, “I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart… sh!t should have never happened and I can’t change what I did.”
