Despite rumors to the contrary, Tory Lanez has not been deported back to Canada. Lanez has been quarantining with family in Florida, a rep for the 28-year-old recording artist told VIBE in a statement on Tuesday (Aug. 4).
“Tory has not been deported and is self-quarantining with his family in Florida. This is a perfect example of false information being spread regarding this case, his whereabouts and his character.”
Reports claimed that Lanez was deported amid accusations that he shot Megan Thee Stallion last month. Lanez, whose birth name is Daystar Peterson, has yet to speak publicly about the incident.
Megan confirmed that she was shot in both feet but did not reveal the shooter’s identity. She did however make it clear that the crime committed against her was “done with the intention to physically harm me.”
According to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department’s inmate records, Lanez was arrested on July 12 at 4:40 a.m., and later released on $35,000 bond. His court date is scheduled for October 13.
