Tory Lanez has been placed under house arrest until his trial against Megan Thee Stallion begins, and it all stems from an alleged incident with August Alsina.

The order came down Wednesday October 26, 2022, during a court hearing in Los Angeles, where it was ruled that Canadian rapper Tory Lanez needs to be on lockdown until November 28 2022, the start of his trial verses Megan Thee Stallion as a result of accusations he bloodied the face of singer August Alsina in Chicago this past September while in tour together.

Prosecutors argued Tory deserved to be remanded into custody because he had violated the conditions of his bail in the Megan Thee Stallion case. They say he continues to pose a threat to public safety and that monetary bail alone wasn’t enough restriction to keep the rapper from being involved in future violent incidents.

Lanez’s attorney, Shawn Holley, did point out to the judge there were no charges filed in the Alsina incident, and only allegations made by Alsina. He went on social media to allege Tory Lanez had sucker punched him, posting bloody photos as proof. Alsina alleged it all came after Tory felt as though he has been dissed by August in passing earlier in the day.

The judge ended up splitting the difference, ordering Tory be confined to his home with a GPS ankle monitor beginning Friday October 28, 2022.

Tory has to remain under house arrest until his felony assault trial gets underway on November 28, 2022. He has issued a plea of Not Guilty and faces charges of firing the gun that caused Megan’s bullet wound in her foot.

TMZ caught up with Tory has he was leaving court following the hearing, and he says the ruling was a perfect example of how the criminal justice system treats Black men.
