In a shocking turn of events, Tory Lanez has filed a new appeal in hopes of overturning his 10-year prison sentence for the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion. The appeal is based on alleged “Erroneous Admission of Evidence” and “Prosecutorial Misconduct,” and comes after a previous motion for a new trial was rejected.

The filing includes a 103-page brief and builds on a habeas petition filed in December, which included a declaration from Lanez’s driver claiming that he saw Lanez trying to take a gun away from Megan’s friend before the shooting occurred. However, the driver did not witness who fired the shots.

The rapid filing of the appeal suggests that a decision from the Second District could be reached by the end of the year, leaving both Lanez and fans of Megan Thee Stallion on edge.

Lanez, who was officially sentenced to prison in September, had been facing a maximum of 22 years and eight months, as well as deportation to Canada upon his release. The rapper/singer is currently awaiting a ruling on his bond pending appeal, a process that could take up to a year.

The case has sparked intense emotions, with a scathing written statement from Megan Thee Stallion being read aloud in court, where she accused Lanez of spinning false narratives about the shooting and making a mockery of her trauma in subsequent music releases.

As the legal battle continues, the fate of Lanez and the aftermath of the shooting remains uncertain, leaving many wondering what will come of this high-profile case.
