Rapper Tory Lanez allegedly tried to lie about his identity when a process server showed up at his Miami apartment.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, Christopher Harty aka Prince from “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” recently hired a server to track down Lanez (real name: Daystar Peterson). The reality star is suing Lanez over an alleged assault in 2019. He needed to serve the rapper before the case could proceed.
In a declaration filed with the court, the process server says they located Lanez on March 15. She says, “Daystar Shemuel Peterson answered the door. I asked if he was Daystar Shemuel Peterson. He asked who I was. I identified myself and informed him of the court documents I had for him.”
She said Lanez “said it was not him. He said I would have to come back in the evening to find the person I was looking for and then closed the door. I spoke through the door and stated I would leave the documents by the door.”
Despite his denial, the server claims “there are photos of Mr. Peterson on social media which confirm his identity.” Further, she says Lanez appeared “later live on social media wearing the same thing he wore when I served him.”
She listed his height as 5’3.
Back in September 2020, Prince sued Lanez accusing him and his security team of assaulting him inside LIV Nightclub. In the suit, the reality star said the incident allegedly went down in November 2019.
Prince says he arrived at the club and encountered Lanez who immediately started, “verbally antagonized HARTY and attempted to engage HARTY in a verbal confrontation which was instigated” by Lanez.
Allegedly, the rapper “escalated his verbal antagonization of HARTY but then began to swing at HARTY and actually punched HARTY with a closed fist.”
The reality star claims Lanez’s security separated the two. However, the guards reportedly began to attack Prince.
Prince said he suffered from “blunt force trauma to his head, neck, chest, and back, and suffered from multiple contusions and bruises to his body.”
In the suit, Prince accused Lanez of assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages.
