Megan Thee Stallion’s Label Responds To Reports Tory Lanez’s Team Sent Fake Emails Posing As Her Team
Megan Thee Stallion’s label has become further entangled in Tory Lanez’s smear campaign against the Houston rapper amid the ongoing fallout over the July 12 shooting incident. Billboard published an explosive report on Tuesday (September 29) where claims were made that Canadian artist and his team sent fake emails and doctored text messages to various media outlets to discredit Megan over allegations he shot her. One email reportedly included a fake email account impersonating 300 Entertainment Head of Creative Kevin Leong claiming that Megan did not want to testify against Lanez.
“In this day and age, digital security is of utmost importance. The email impersonation of our Head of Creative Kevin Leong, with the intent to disseminate false information has been brought to our attention and we are working diligently on Megan's behalf to get to the bottom of the matter,” 300 Entertainment issued in a statement provided to Billboard.
An unnamed representative for Lanez denied that his team was behind the fake emails, telling Billboard, “the only commentary which has been made on this topic was the creative output on the album. We are investigating who could be sending these false emails and intend to take action against them.”
Last week Lanez broke his silence on the matter in the form of 17-track album, Daystar, wherein he denied shooting Megan on the lead single, “Money Over Fallouts.”
On July 12, Megan was struck in both of her feet after Lanez reportedly fired four shots at her following an argument. At the time, he was arrested and charged for possession of a concealed firearm in a vehicle. He was released after posting bond for $35,000. In August, the Los Angeles Times reported that the district attorney’s office is reviewing the possibility of bringing felony assault charges against the 27-year-old.
On August 21, Megan shared an emotional Instagram video where she named Lanez as the one who shot her and called him out for planting false stories in the media.
Lanez is set to appear in court on October 13.
