Lanez is facing two felony charges relating to the Megan Thee Stallion shooting. The pint-sized rapper is accused of shooting at Megan’s feet following an argument on July 12, 2020. The two were driving in an SUV after leaving a party in the Hollywood Hills around 4:30 AM.
He is charged with assault with a semiautomatic firearm and a separate charge for carrying a loaded, unregistered weapon. If convicted, Lanez could be sent to prison for 22 years and eight months.
At the moment, he is out on $250k bond awaiting his trial. He entered a not guilty plea back in November.
Lanez’s powerhouse attorney Shawn Holley told the outlet, “As in every case, the lawyers for the parties discuss the possibility of resolving the case. This case is no different. That said, our position as to what did and did not happen in this matter remains unchanged.”
Due to the talks falling apart, Lanez was ordered to appear in court with Holley on December 14 for a preliminary hearing.
He is expected to testify in court during the prelim.
Recently, the judge presiding over the case increased Lanez’s bond amount after prosecutors accused him of violating a criminal protective order.
They claimed he came within 100 yards of Megan during an appearance at Rolling Loud with DaBaby. Prosecutors also claimed the rapper tried to rush Megan’s performance but were unable to get on.
Lanez avoided being thrown in jail for the violation but increased the bail from $190k to $250k. The judge also warned him again to stay away from Megan or face harsher consequences.
