Judge Orders Tory Lanez to Stay Away From Megan Thee Stallion
Written by DJ AquaTrunk on October 13, 2020
In a report from TMZ on Tuesday (Oct. 13), Tory was not present in Los Angeles County Superior Court physically for his arraignment on his assault with a semiautomatic firearm–personal use of a firearm–and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle charges, but he made an appearance by phone.
His attorney, Shawn Holly, requested a continuance—or a postponement—in the case so the rapper-crooner did not enter a plea. However, a rep from the Los Angeles County Superior Court confirmed to XXL this afternoon that a protective order was put in place against Tory, born Daystar Peterson, requiring that he stay away from Megan Thee Stallion.
In addition to the protective order, which TMZ notes that Tory must stay at least 100 yards away from the “Wap” artist, his bail was set at $190,000. The outlet claims he will be posting the bail via a bondsman who was present at the hearing.
Lastly, Tory Lanez was reportedly ordered to surrender any guns he owns.
XXL has reached out to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, the Los Angeles County Superior Court as well as a Tory Lanez’s attorney, a rep for Megan Thee Stallion and her attorney for a comment on this matter.
