Judge Denies Tory Lanez’s Request to Speak Publicly About Megan Thee Stallion Assault Case
Tory Lanez’s request for permission to speak publicly about the widely publicized Megan Thee Stallion assault case has been denied.
Lanez, 28, filed a request in January to be able to speak publicly about the shooting that took place in July, for which he has pleaded not guilty to one felony count each of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
Lanez’s attorney, Shawn Holley, argued at the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles Thursday that the protective order barring him from talking was “unfair” since it does not also apply to Megan.
"I think in a perfect world, no one would be able to say anything," said Tory Lanez's lawyer, Shawn Holley. "My goal is to be fair."
The judge ultimately ruled against Lanez's argument and made no adjustments to Megan Thee Stallion's ability to speak on the case.
"We have two high-profile celebrities named as the defendant and the alleged victim in this case," the judge said before warning that no one wants social media to become part of the evidence in the case.
