Tory Lanez was not deported, despite reports to the contrary.
On Tuesday (August 4), a rep for the embattled singer denied Lanez had been deported back to Canada for acquiring a gun charge. Lanez was arrested July 12 on a felony charge of possession of a concealed weapon amid the incident with Megan Thee Stallion.
“This is a perfect example of false information being spread regarding this case, his whereabouts and his character,” Lanez’s rep said in a statement to The Neighborhood Talk. “He’s in good spirits and looks forward to having the truth come to light about that night and wishes nothing but the best for Meg.”

TNHT: Kyle.Anfernee (@Kyle.Anfernee) Neighbors, earlier today we broke the news that Tory Lanez was spotted in at a local McDonalds in Orlando, Florida. A few conflicting reports have come out saying he’s been deported. Well, he’s very much still in the United States. _________________________________________________ A source connected DIRECTLY to Tory's camp told us EXCLUSIVELY: _________________________________________________ "Obviously Tory has not been deported and is self-quarantining with his family. This is a perfect example of false information being spread regarding this case, his whereabouts and his character. He's in good spirits and looks forward to having the truth come to light about that night and wishes nothing but the best for Meg."
The statement came just after a video circulated showing Lanez at an Orlando, Florida McDonald’s on Monday night (August 3) – very much not in Canada.
Megan opened up about the incident in a tearful Instagram Live that same day, confirming she was shot in both feet. She did not mention Lanez by name, however.
“I had to get surgery to get the shit taken out, to get the bullets taken out,” she said. “It was super scary … it was the worst experience of my life and it’s not funny. It’s nothing to joke about. It was nothing for y’all to start making fake stories about. I didn’t put my hands on nobody. I didn’t deserve to get shot. I didn’t do shit.”
Lanez is due back in court in October.
