A judge has ruled that Megan Thee Stallion’s protective order was violated by Tory Lanez at last month’s now-infamous Rolling Loud Miami festival.
Lanez was arrested last summer and subsequently charged with felony assault after allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion. The Houston rapper was then granted a protective order.
A judge ordered Lanez to refrain from contacting or coming within 100 yards of Meg. In court on Monday, a judge ordered Lanez to pay an additional $60,000 after increasing his bail to $250,000 from $190,000.
Lanez hopped on DaBaby’s set during the festival. The set was immediately after Meg’s — meaning he likely came into close contact with her.
During his court appearance on Monday, the judge issued a stern warning to Lanez.
“You’re facing years in prison, over 22 years in prison,” Judge Keith Borjon told Lanez.
“They could have filed an additional charge based on violating the protective order because that’s a violation of law as well. You do not want to be doing things like this sir. You have the means and the where with all and a lot of smart people around you to advise you as to how you should be conducting your life so we don’t have to have hearings like this.”
According to Billboard, the judge almost ordered Lanez to wear a tracking device, but his lawyer averted the order.
Shawn Holley argued, “It was a unique circumstance, errors in judgement were made, but this can easily be prevented from happening again.”
She added, “If [Tory’s] intention was to harass or intimidate [Megan Thee Stallion], she would have known he was there at the time. He would have seen her and she would have seen him … He went there for a legitimate purpose as far as his artistry is concerned .. to perform a song, a part of a song.”
