According to numerous news channels, Tory Lanez has been ordered to stand trial in the shooting of Megan The Stallion.

The incident occurred last year on July 12th after the two artists left a pool party at Kylie Jenner’s house in Hollywood Hills. Tory Lanez is accused of shooting Megan in the foot while riding in an SUV and allegedly told her to “dance b*tch,” according to testimony by Los Angeles Police Det. Ryan Stogner 

During the preliminary hearing on Tuesday, Dec. 14, Tory’s lawyer hinted that it was Megan’s former assistant, Kelsey Nicole, who pulled the trigger following an argument that escalated in the vehicle.

James Queally on Twitter: “Both Lanez and his attorney declined to comment. Next hearing Jan. 13th. In a preview of a possible defense during today’s prelim, Peterson’s attorney seemed to be hinting that another person in the car (a friend of Megan Thee Stallion) may have actually pulled the trigger. / Twitter”

Following the hearing, Lanez took to Twitter his frustrations stating, “I need someone to REPORT what was REALLY said in court today,” he tweeted. “45 minutes of my lawyer stating contradictory evidence that proves my innocence should never come back as one false story forced to the media.”

Back in August, the Alone At Prom rapper was ordered to pay an increased bail of $250,000 for violating the protective order issued for Megan Thee Stallion when he took the stage at Rolling Loud Miami in July as a surprise during DaBaby‘s set.

“They could have filed an additional charge based on violating the protective order because that’s a violation of law as well. You do not want to be doing things like this, sir,” said Judge Keith H. Borjon to Peterson at the time. “You have the means and the where with all and a lot of smart people around you to advise you as to how you should be conducting your life so we don’t have to have hearings like this.”

Tory Lanez is to return to court for the arraignment on his criminal charges on Jan. 13, 2022.

Hit-Boy Back Working with Kanye West

Back in November, HS87 producer Hit-Boy revealed on the Rory & Mal podcast that he and Kanye West had a falling out and West tried to have him blacked balled from the industry.

“I haven’t been a fan of Kanye on a personal/ human level since he told me face to face he stopped picking my beats because I worked with Beyoncé,” Hit-Boy told Rory and Mal. “This is after I produced n*ggas in Paris , clique, and a myriad of other songs / projects for him and his label GOOD Music in the 2 years I was signed with them.”

However, Hit-Boy revealed today that he is officially back to working with Ye, presumably for DONDA 2. The producer was seen in the studio with him and The Game and was given production credit on Ye’s latest release, ‘Eazy.’

Jennifer Hough, the woman who was suing Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty for alleged harassment and intimidation in efforts to get her to recant her account that Petty sexually assaulted her, voluntarily dismissed her case against Minaj on Wednesday, January 12.

According to TMZ, there was no financial settlement that made Hough drop the case, however, Petty still remains a defendant, meaning the case against him is still active.

“The case was voluntarily dismissed as to Nicki in NY,” Hough’s attorney, Tyrone Blackburn said in a statement. “The case against Kenneth is ongoing. This does not mean that Nicki Minaj is in the clear. In fact, she’s probably in a worst position now than prior to when the case started. So, I would say, stay tuned.”

Petty was convicted of assaulting Hough in 1995 and served four years in prison. Hough spoke about the incident publicly on The Real, back in October.

Minaj has not addressed the dismissal, but tweeted a unicorn emoji in response to a tweet that quoted her verse on Tasha Cobb Leonard‘s 2017 release “I’m Getting Ready,” which read, “I don’t gotta talk the lord defends me.”

The Queen rapper’s attorney,  Judd Burstein, responded to the dismissal by e-mailing Hough’s lawyer.

“In my view, your conduct in pursuing this case against Nicki represents the worst of our legal system: bottom-feeding lawyers who pursue frivolous actions against a celebrity assuming that they will be paid off if they throw enough dirt.”

Judd continues, “You forced my client to spend over $300,000 in fees to defend a case which even my labradoodle, Gracie, could see was frivolous on both the facts and the law.”

Petty is to return to court in March for sentencing after accepting a plea deal back in August for failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California.

Diamond “Baby Blue” Smith of Pretty Ricky has been sentenced to 20 months in prison after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in August.

The sentencing comes as a result of the Florida rapper’s October 2020 arrest for filing fraudulent loan applications in order to receive funds from the Paycheck Protection Program. Baby Blue received a loan of $426,717, for his business Throwbackjersey.com LLC, and $708,065 for his other company, Blue Star Records LLC.

Receiving a total of $1.1 million, the rapper didn’t put the money towards his businesses.

Baby Blue also admitted to falsifying documents.

In addition to his 20-month sentence, Baby Blue has been ordered to pay $1,111,345 in restitution and $1,134,782 in forfeiture.
