It was then that the Savage rapper, born Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, said that the Say It rapper, born Daystar Shemuel Shua Peterson, disrespected her. She demanded to be let out of the vehicle before he shot at her five times.
Lanez, 30, has denied all charges.
Minutes after the shooting, a friend received a text from Megan stating: “Help… Tory shot meg,” according to testimony. Shortly after, Lanez “profusely apologized for his actions” and said he was “just too drunk,” Megan’s attorney told jurors.
Prosecutors further claim that Lanez told Megan to “dance” while he shot at her.
Meanwhile, Lanez’s attorney claims that the case is “about jealousy” and said he would prove that Megan’s accusations were not true. The defense team said that Megan initially told doctors her injured feet had been cut on broken glass.
Reports indicate that Megan didn’t immediately reveal that she was shot because she did not want Lanez to get in trouble. But healthcare professionals soon found several bullet fragments in her feet and some still remain, she says.
The trial is ongoing.
