Tory Lanez Released From House Arrest Amid Megan Thee Stallion Trial
Tory was released from house arrest on Monday days ahead of his trial against Megan Thee Stallion.
Tory Lanez may be free from his electronic home monitor. But the Canadian singer is gearing up for another court appearance next week. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office released a statement on Monday, confirming the news. “Mr. Peterson’s house arrest was lifted over the objections of our office,” the LA County District Office stated.
Judge David Herriford said he allowed for the home monitor removal “mainly for the trial preparation aspect.”
Rolling Stone reporter Nancy Dillion tweeted an up date on Tory and Megan’s trial. “Tory Lanez released from house arrest as his trial for allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion begins with jury selection in L.A.” Tory’s legal woes have increased since receiving his initial assault charges brought by the Traumazine rapper in 2020. Back in October, he spoke about his troubles with the court during a sit-down with DJ Akademiks.
“I’ve never been a patient guy, but I will tell you this: I’ve always been a time and place guy,” the singer shared. “That’s not about me trying to be too cool. No, guys, I’m in an open case and maybe I make this sh*t look really beautiful, but I’m facing 24 years.”
The interview came on the heels of Tory being placed on house arrest after assaulting August Alsina during a concert. “I am actively facing 24 years. Next month,” Tory told Akademiks “This is not no play-play situation. I’m not ’bout to… been in this for three years. I am not about to play internet games with you guys. Gonna start now.”
The openings in the Tory vs. Megan trial are expected on December 12.
