Tory Lanez Taken Into Custody For Violating Megan Thee Stallion's No Contact Order After Social Media Spat: Report
Tory Lanez has been taken into custody after violating the no contact order Megan Thee Stallion filed against him.
According to Rolling Stone reporter Nancy Dillon, the rapper, 29, was handcuffed in court on Tuesday, April 5, in Los Angeles and remanded to custody until he posts a new bail of $350,000 in the felony assault case. The judge in the case found Lanez in violation of discovery protective order and personal contact order.
In a tweet from the reporter, she noted, "Judge David Herriford heard nearly an hour of argument about Lanez's tweets and said some 'seem to be clear messages' to Megan. He added new condition to Lanez's release that he's 'not to mention the complaining witness in this case in any social media.'"
The trial date is currently set for September 14, according to Dillon.

As OK! previously reported, the "Say It" artist was accused of shooting the "Savage" rapper, 27, in the foot in July 2020 at a Hollywood after-party following an argument between the two music moguls. The record producer now faces one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm in a manner that caused great bodily injury and one count of carrying a concealed, unregistered weapon.
According to LAPD Detective Ryan Stogner, who testified in the case, Tory was allegedly heard yelling "Dance b***h, dance!" as he continuously fired off rounds at Meg's feet.

This was not the first time Tory has allegedly violated the order. In August, prosecutors in the case fought to get the entertainer's bail taken away after they claimed the 29-year-old artist and DaBaby tried to rush the stage during the "Hot Girl Summer" rapper's set at the Rolling Loud Music Festival.
However, according to Tory, he never came in contact with the Grammy Award winning musician, nor did he get close to her during the event.

Fans called Tory out at the time for being in such close proximity to Meg after he tweeted in DaBaby's defense following the homophobic rant the "BOP" rapper went on during his set at the festival.
"When did rap get so politically correct that u can’t speak your mind and have an opinion .... why the f--k was rap started ?... for us to speak our mind .... rappers will not always be right, and u don’t have to agree," Tory tweeted, in which one user responded, "Since when can rappers shoot girls on the feet?"
Tory fired back at the accusation replying, "Since when have u had ACTUAL evidence that I did that??/ I'll wait."
Meg has yet to make a comment on Tory's recent violation.
