He tweeted: ‘Representative for Tory Lanez says it is NOT TRUE that charges against him in the set of Megan Thee Stallion were dropped:’ The blog that posted this information is false. I guess the record has not been updated …. The next hearing date is mid-February. ”
Lanez representatives were more specific in a statement to Page Six, saying: ‘The false report was from a D List blogger (I can’t even find their contact) who doesn’t know how to read a court file . ”
Another source also clarified that Megan had nothing to do with whether the case was dropped.
“ The LA County District Attorney’s Office has filed the charges against him, not Megan, so they can drop the charges, ” the insider said. “But the reality is that he will have to face the consequences of his actions.”
If found guilty, Lanez could face up to 22 years and eight months in state prison.
But he took on an optimistic tone on his own Twitter on Thursday, posting: ‘I’m going to continue my 2021 without a problem … I just want to create great content for my fans. ”
