Tory Lanez was in court Thursday in Cali where he denied that he was the source of an alleged evidence leak involving his felony case with Megan Thee Stallion. A prosecutor detailed how a sealed discovery made its way online shortly after Megan shared her side of the story to Gayle King on April 25th. “Since the last court date, it was apparent there were some leaks of part of the discovery to media or members of the public,” Deputy District Attorney Kathy Ta told the judge, saying she was still “trying to ascertain” the source.
“My concern is the way the leaks are being disseminated and extrapolated in certain ways to mislead the state of the evidence,” she said. “I do have concerns about invested members of the public trying to subvert the fair administration of justice.”
Lanez’ lawyer said the “watermarked” discovery didn’t come from her client because he refused to accept it out of fear that he might be accused of leaking. “I’m certain that whatever exists that is out there won’t have my name on it or Mr. Peterson’s name on it,” Lanez’ attorney Shawn Holley said.
Court reporter Nancy Dillon tweeted about the court date saying, “Tory’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, said Megan “upped the ante” by speaking to Gayle King on CBS. She says Tory rebuffed calls from CBS producers, asking for rebuttal interview. Tory ordered back July 28. Trial date Sept. 14.”

And while Megan was accused of upping the ante by speaking to Gayle King, CBS offered a similar interview to Tory who allegedly declined the offer. The two are now due back in court for another pre-trial date July 28th and the official trial begins this September. Considering how this has been a thing for 2 years, it’s hard to believe the actual trial hasn’t begun yet.
