Tory Lanez sued by man who claims he was 'disfigured' in hit-and-run with rapper's vehicle as he faces 22 years in jailSeptember 23, 2021
TORY Lanez has been sued by a man claiming he was disfigured in a hit-and-run with the rapper's vehicle.
According to court documents a man named Barry Fine has filed a lawsuit against the 29-year-old rapper and insurance company AIG.
Radar Online reports that Barry claims he was driving his Porsche on January 23 2021 when an unknown driver operating a 2016 Range Rover owned by Tory caused a "chain reaction rear-end collision."
He claims that one vehicle was propelled into his Porsche.
The suit claims that the driver of the Range Rover "fled the scene."
The car was later found abandoned on the I-95 in Miami.
Barry claims the crash caused him to sustain serious injuries and property damage and blames Tory's negligence for the crash in allowing the unknown person driver permission to drive the car.
Barry goes on to claim his injuries include disfigurement, physical and mental pain and suffering. He wants $30,000 in damages.
Tory is yet to respond to the lawsuit.
TORY QUITS SOCIAL MEDIA
It comes after the rapper concerned fans with his latest social media post one year after Megan Thee Stallion shooting allegations.
Megan previously accused the rapper of shooting her in both feet following an altercation last July.
Tory is facing charges related to the incident and has a hearing scheduled for Thursday, according to court records obtained by Radar.
Fans got worried after the Canadian rapper tweeted "It's been real ." before deleting his social media history on all accounts.
NOT GUILTY PLEA
The performer entered a plea of not guilty back in November 2020 and was ordered by a judge to keep his distance from Megan.
However, Tory may have gotten himself in hot water after he joined a surprise set with DaBaby at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami at the end of July minutes after the Hot Girl Summer singer performed on the same stage.
As TMZ first reported, the move may have violated a restraining order Megan was granted that says Tory must stay “at least 100 yards” away from her at all times.
Megan – who’s real name is Megan Jovon Ruth Pete – was backstage while Tory was doing his set.
The Los Angeles County D.A.’s office along with Miami Police Department were contacted about the possible violation of her protective order, the publication alleged.
According to the outlet, the Savage songstress’ team is upset by the move and also that they performed one of Megan’s songs, Cash S**t.
“Those close to Megan feel this was a giant ‘f you’ to her, mocking her and the ongoing criminal case with Tory and in a way, menacing her,” they claimed.
Megan has previously collaborated with DaBaby on songs like Cash S**t, Nasty and Cry Baby.
However, after she accused rapper Tory – real name Daystar Peterson – of shooting her in the feet during an argument in a car last July, the pair had a falling out.
They even had a public Twitter spat after DaBaby joined forces with Tory for his SKAT music video.
Tory was accused of shooting at Megan’s feet after she left a SUV during a fight in the Hollywood Hills on July 12 2020, according to a release.
Megan was left with two wounds in her feet and hit out at the Canadian recording artist on social media at the time.
Sharing photos of her injuries, she wrote: "B**ch you shot me AND MY STORY NOT CHANGING AND B**CH YOU GOING TO JAIL.”
He faces two felony charges – assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
Tory pleaded not guilty through his attorney back in November for the charges.
He faces up to 22 years in prison if found guilty.
