Tory Lanez saw another day at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center. A prosecutor expressed concerns about leaks in the assault case against Tory Lanez, who allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion. The latest court appearance was to help determine if there’s enough evidence to move forward to the pre-trial.

According to Rolling Stone, Deputy District Attorney Kathy Ta questioned if Tory Lanez leaked documents at a court hearing on Thursday (June 9). A  huge issue that arose on the day was over Megan Thee Stallion interview on television that went viral with the popular Gayle King. Fans saw the Houston hip hop artist reiterate that Tory Lanez was indeed her shooter, but of course Tory Lanez continues to deny this action.  Tory’s lawyers said in response to this type of highly-publicized coverage, “I’ve received numerous emails from producers of the show asking Mr. Peterson to come on and give his side of the story. Obviously, he hasn’t done that and is not going to do that. I also want to indicate that Mr. Peterson, out of concern that there might be some suggestion that he had something to do with anything being leaked, has refused to accept any discovery in this case.”


Rolling Stone noted a YouTube vlogger published portions of a sealed police report two weeks after Megan Thee Stallion’s CBS interview. The preliminary report included a line about a doctor saying she suffered a laceration from stepping on glass, which Tory Lanez supporters believe exonerates him. But LAPD Det. Ryan Stogner’s testimony and medical records corroborate the shooting allegations.

Tory Lanez and his lawyer Shawn Holley denied leaking anything in wake of Megan Thee Stallion’s CBS interview. Holley claimed her client even refused to take watermarked copies of court documents “out of concern there might be some suggestion that he had something to do with leaking.”

“I’m certain that whatever exists that is out there won’t have my name on it or Mr. Peterson’s name on it,” Holley insisted.
