Tory Lanez was recently charged with felony weapon and assault charges, following accusations that he allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion during and incident in the Hollywood Hills. According to Variety, a judge has issued an order, which mandates Lanez stay at least 100 yards away from the rapper.

Stop lying. Why lie? I don’t understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you dragging it. You really f**king dragging it.”
