On Wednesday (Sept. 9), TMZ published a report alleging the 28-year-old Canadian performer apologized for shooting Megan via text message 15 hours after allegedly firing a weapon at her. According to the messages, Tory Lanez offered an apology before claiming intoxication led to the altercation.
"I know u prolly never gone talk to me again, but I genuinely want u to know I'm sorry from the bottom of my heart," TMZ claims one message read. Tory then goes on to state, "I was just too drunk."
As the conversation continues, Tory goes on to reiterate that drunkenness was the cause of his violent actions, "cuz I genuinely just got too drunk."
The new report suggesting that Lanez did indeed apologize to the "Cash Shit" rapper comes after fans began to criticize Tory for coming forward about his streaming numbers, but not yet publicly speaking about the incident with Megan.
In early July, Tory was arrested and booked at the Los Angeles County's Sheriff's Department for carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle. It was later revealed that witnesses claimed an argument took place in an SUV outside of a home in the Hollywood Hills and gunshots were fired, resulting in Megan being hit with bullets in her feet. Last month, the 25-year-old Hoston native went on Instagram Live and confirmed Tory Lanez as her shooter after weeks of silence and withholding details about the shooting to protect those involved.
