The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office has stated that it is “thoroughly examining” claims that Tory Lanez assaulted fellow singer August Alsina.
Both acts had reportedly gone into a fight, with different versions of the fight emerging online.
Alsina shared his version of events online, including photos of his wounds. According to him, he didn’t shake Tory Lanez because of health concerns, which seemed to have bruised the Say It singer’s ego.
He wrote online: “as I’m exiting the building after the show last night, A 4’11 sized leprechaun ran down on me w/ 8 oversized security nigxas, whom I greeted each individually upon their walk up as they tried to press me.
“Whole time, I’m one deep. No security. Tory continues to ask w/ a broken ego why I didn’t dap him up, I go on to tell him.. I was a fan of him and didn’t understand him speaking on my business publicly In the past, because I don’t know him or ever met him until last night.
“So when he spoke it caught me off guard because of his past actions, i assumed he didn’t like me, that’s all. Not to mention, with my history of health & condition just recently overcoming being paralyzed, my doctor directed me not to compromise my health while out on road and shake as less hands as possible due to corona, & monkeypox.”
This adds to the problems for Tory Lanez, who is currently awaiting trial for felony assault for an alleged attack on rapper Meg Thee Stallion.
“We are aware of the allegations that the defendant attacked artist August Alsina and are investigating these claims. The allegations are serious and will be thoroughly examined,” the DA’s Office says in a statement to Rolling Stone.
Tory denies any knowledge of the incident, saying he doesn’t know what Alsina is talking about.
