Canadian rapper Tory Lanez has been charged with shooting hip-hop star Megan Thee Stallion in an altercation that happened in the Hollywood Hills in July.
According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Lanez — whose legal name is Daystar Peterson — was charged today with one felony count each of assault with semiautomatic firearm – personal use of a firearm – and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
He also “faces a gun allegation and that he personally inflicted great bodily injury,” said the office.
