Tory Lanez caused an uproar across social media on Thursday night (Sept. 24), when he teased that he would finally break his silence after Megan Thee Stallion revealed that the Canadian rapper shot her in the leg during a July confrontation.
Instead of coming clean, the 28-year-old rapper and singer, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, unveiled a 17-track album Daystar, with the lead track “Money Over Fallouts” featuring the line, “Gotta see a couple questions: how the f–k you get shot in your foot, don’t hit no bones or tendons?”
“Megan people tryna frame me for a shootin’…Knowin’ I ain’t do it but I’m comin’ at my truest,” he also claims on the track.
Despite the controversy, Daystar reached No. 1 on US Apple Music, which was announced in a tweet on Friday (Sept. 25). Halsey, who often supports victims of abuse on her social platforms, quickly came to Meg’s defense in response to the Daystar milestone.
“I’m sorry but I really can’t believe whoever is listening to this and letting this man speak on and profit off of his violence towards someone we know and love,” she tweeted.

Meg has yet to respond to Lanez’s album.
“Yes … Tory shot me. You shot me and you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs lying,” she said in August during an Instagram Live. “Stop lying. Why lie? I don’t understand.”
To explain why initial reports said she cut her foot on glass, the “Hot Girl” rapper explained that she was worried for her safety. “I didn’t tell the police nothing because I didn’t want us to get in no more trouble,” she added.
