Washington [US], October 21 (ANI): Canadian rapper Tory Lanez addressed his alleged shooting of rapper Megan Thee Stallion on Instagram Live on Tuesday night (local time).
According to Page Six, the 28-year-old rapper began,"For the last three months of my life, I've been in this place where I've been bashed, I've been cut through -- just people every single day just coming at me, coming at me, coming at me."
"It's crazy because the whole thing about it is -- when this whole debacle, or whatever you call it, came about, the whole time was like ... She knows what happened, I know what happened, and we know that what you're saying and what the alleged things and the alleged accusations of my name is [sic] are not true."
Lanez continued,"It's falsified information, it's false information and it's not accurate information. I don't ever wanna come off like I'm here to bash this girl or I'm here to talk down about this girl or ever be at a place where, like, I'm disrespecting her, because to me, as a person, she's still my friend. No matter what -- even if she doesn't look at me like that -- I look at her like she's still my friend."
Lanez continued to criticise over varying points of the shooting incident in the video, though he doesn't issue a direct denial of whether or not he shot Megan.
Megan, for her part, weighed in on the clip on Twitter, writing simply, "This n***a genuinely crazy."
As reported by Page Six, in September, when Lanez released an album, 'Daystar,' on which he addressed the shooting with every track, asking at one point, "How the f**k you get shot in your foot, don't hit no bones or tendons?"
Lanez allegedly shot Megan in July after a party the two attended. He was charged on October 8 in connection with the incident and faces 22 years in prison.
Lanez tweeted of the charges,"[Time] will [tell]. And the truth will come to the light ... I have all faith in God to show that."
According to Page Six, Megan wrote in a New York Times op-ed about the experience last week, "Even as a victim, I have been met with scepticism and judgment.The way people have publicly questioned and debated whether I played a role in my own violent assault proves that my fears about discussing what happened were, unfortunately, warranted."
