Tory Lanez was found guilty in the 2020 shooting that injured Megan Thee Stallion.
A leaked jail call surfaced online, and social media believes this prompted the jury to give Tory a guilty verdict. VIBE reports a YouTuber named Nique At Nite posted audio from the phone conversation that seemingly took place after the shooting.
Tory called Kelsey Harris, Megan’s former best friend and assistant. During the conversation, Tory sounds weary and concerned about Megan’s well-being. In the audio, you hear Kelsey say,
“Megan’s still in the hospital. I’m outside the hospital.” Then Tory asks which hospital, Kelsey tells him, “Cedar Medical.”
Tory also blamed being too drunk for his actions, though he didn’t specifically say what. The Canadian rapper also apologized multiple times. He said,
“Bruh, I know [Megan] prolly never, ever gonna talk to me ever again, but, I just want you to know, bruh, I was just so f*cking drunk that I ain’t even know what the f*uk was going on.” He went on to show more remorse and says,
“I ain’t never do some sh*t like that […] I didn’t even understand what the f*ck was going on. Regardless, though, that’s not gonna make anything right, and it’s not gonna make my actions right. I’m just deeply sorry, bruh.”
Tory asked Kelsey to get in touch with his security to bail him out of jail. Tory also admitted that the “backlash” would fall on him and not Megan. Take a listen:
