Last week, Tory Lanez released his surprise album DAYSTAR, which hit back at Megan Thee Stallion’s allegations that he shot her in July. Now, Meg’s team have responded in a statement that claims the Canadian rapper has launched a “smear campaign” against her.
On DAYSTAR’s opening track “Money Over Fallouts,” Lanez alleged that he’d been “framed” by Megan, her reps and the media. “Megan people trying to frame me for a shooting / But them boys ain’t clean enough / I see how they teamin’ up, watchin’ and I’m calculatin’,” he raps.
The surprise LP broke Lanez’s months-long silence beginning the day of the incident, which led to his arrest on a concealed weapon charge. In a statement prior to the album’s release, the rapper said that he wanted to finally share his side of the story. “There is a time to stay silent. And a time to speak ….. I said all I could say on this,” he wrote on social media.
However Megan’s attorney, Alex Spiro, has rebutted Lanez’s latest allegations and claims that Lanez and his team have fabricated emails to send out to the media. “We have been made aware of manipulated text messages and invented email accounts that have been disseminated to the media in a calculated attempt to peddle a false narrative about the events that occurred on July 12. A smear campaign can’t change the truth,” Spiro told Variety.
A rep for Lanez has since denied those accusations, saying, “The only commentary which has been made on this topic was the creative output on the album. We are investigating who could be sending these false emails and intend to take action against them.”
Megan has yet to publicly respond to Lanez’s claims. However, shortly after the release of DAYSTAR, the Houston rapper posted an Instagram photo of herself wearing diamond-encrusted rings that spell out the words, “Fuck You.” “Mood,” she wrote in the caption. See it below:
