Tory Lanez ‘apologized’ via text to Megan Thee Stallion hours after he shot her

Day Three of Wireless Festival including Pusha T, Tyga, Yuna and Tory Lanez

Tory Lanez shot Megan Thee Stallion in both of her feet in July. She’s still able to walk, and she’s so lucky that those shots didn’t do more damage. Megan has done a couple of very emotional IG Live sessions talking about what happened on that night in July. She’s been harassed by a–holes questioning why she didn’t do this or that, why she didn’t tell someone as it happened. The lack of sympathy extended to Megan for being the victim of a horrible crime is really extraordinary and painful to witness. Now, bizarrely, TMZ has “seen the text” Tory sent Megan hours after he shot her:

Tory Lanez allegedly opened fire on Megan Thee Stallion because he was wasted — that’s what he claimed in a text sent to her shortly after the bloody incident … as she was still in a hospital bed. TMZ has seen the text Megan got on the evening of July 12 … roughly 15 hours after she claims Tory shot her in her feet, and in it, he’s begging for forgiveness. He wrote, “I know u prolly never gone talk to me again, but I genuinely want u to know I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart.” His only explanation for the violence … “I was just too drunk.”

In the text, Tory never references “shooting” or a gun, but it is clear he did something he regrets. In his words, “None the less s**t should have never happened and I can’t change what did. I just feel horrible.” And, he repeats … “Cuz I genuinely just got too drunk.”

Tory has not been arrested or charged for the shooting, but as we first reported, the L.A. County D.A. is considering charging him with felony assault with a firearm. As for Tory and Megan’s contact since the shooting … we’re told she’s never responded to his “sorry” text.

It’s weird that he didn’t make a full text confession, almost like he was worried that his texts might pin down his story in a future trial. He probably didn’t know, at that moment, that Megan had not told the cops that he was the one who shot her because she was protecting him and protecting herself from the cops. As for “too drunk” – ugh. It’s not an excuse and he should still be charged for what he did.

    I can’t stand this dude. He has Napoleon Complex. I wonder if he’ll get deported for this? He’s Canadian and probably in America on a work visa. I can’t understand how you can shoot someone and NOT get arrested ??!! Also, was he driving the car that night? So he was also driving drunk then? This motherf*cker.

  2. Char says:

    Imagine the reverse situation, would her “I was too drunk” excuse pass? Never, she was the one shot and people were blaming her for supposedly being jealous of Kylie Jenner, as if in case she actually was, she deserved getting both her feet shot.
    This man is crap, but he’s going to be ok, as all rappers who did women dirty are.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      +1. I think it was on instagram, but she said that story about her going after him over Kylie was PR spin fabricated by his team to make her (Megan) look like the aggressor and fraud. And that rumor is one of the things people were using to discredit her. Even while she was worried about protecting him, he showed no concern about protecting her from damaging stereotypes or taking accountability for what he did to her.

  3. smegmoria says:

    Anybody else watch her live show the other week? True professional. You could tell she was hurting, but she pushed through.

  4. Mindy_Dopple says:

    Considering!? Considering pressing charges!? Can someone tell me why they haven’t? Even if Megan decides to not cooperate they have her words!! They at the VERY least need to bring him in and GRILL the shit out of him. Breaks my heart that he’s still out here sending out these talking points. He probably gave TMZ this info so those other raggedy thinking people can say well he said he was sorry!! And she didn’t die! He was too drunk! He could have killed her and/or someone else. I’ve blacked out I’ve been so drunk and I’ve never been violent once. That is no excuse.

    “Too drunk” with a gun. My God. She’s lucky she’s alive.

    • ME says:

      Is he even allowed to own a gun in America? He’s not an American citizen and is on a work visa I’m assuming. So illegal gun, shoots a person, and presumably driving drunk…yet not arrested and no charges as of yet. Something is fishy about this…

  6. Kristic says:

    I have nothing but sympathy and support for her. Our gun situation in the country is out of control!

  7. Ellie says:

    I don’t think it’s weird at all he didn’t say he shot her, I think he is a POS and trying to avoid having his own words used against him. I would say that’s not gonna stand up in court when there’s photo evidence, cell phone timestamps, video of her with him that night and she said he did it in a very public forum – but he hasn’t been charged, so… what a world.

  8. detritus says:

    Not addressing the issue of why he has a gun while drunk and obviously unable to handle himself.
    Not addressing the deep rooted issues of thinking violence solves a conflict or proves manhood.
    Not addressing the deep betrayal of trust between partners by hurting her and what that means for the work he needs to do.

    He doesn’t even offer the shite solution of not drinking around her.

    This makes him look like a little boy who shouldn’t be allowed to handle weapons. In a just world, at the very least his licence should be revoked.

    She deserves so much better.

  9. Watson says:

    I hope this guy goes to jail. He’s probably assaulted women in the past too, and will assault women in the future. Trash. Pure trash.

  10. I am Mimi says:

    Why has he not been arrested???? How can a person shoot someone else twice and just be walking around free?

  11. BnLurkN4eva says:

    This person needs to be arrested and if grossly unjust that he continues to walk around and unfair that she’s still blamed by many for all manner of nonsense when she did nothing wrong. This world, I tell you.

  12. Don't Trust the B in Comment 23 says:

    Black men can do whatever to black women and black women have to sit quietly and let it happen. It’s an awful reality that we have to put an end to.
