The felony assault case against Tory Lanez went to trial on Wednesday (February 23) but before court even began, Akademiks tweeted there was “NO DNA” found on the weapon used to shoot Megan Thee Stallion in 2020. Consequently, Hot Girl Megan snapped on “Little Ak” and insisted he was “lying.”
Akademiks eventually deleted the tweet but quickly resurfaced with an update that read, “Tory Lanez trial just adjourned until April with Tory’s lawyer telling the court they have completed DNA results from the prosecution which is very pleasing to his client (I saw this doc myself .. it literally says it was inconclusive in finding TORY DNA on the gun or magazine). Now one of y’all finna tell me my eyes deceived me. I ain’t Trasha K. Stop playin wit me.”
Meanwhile, Rolling Stone reporter Nancy Dillon and Page Six Senior Reporter Eileen Reslen both refuted Akademiks’ claims and insisted DNA evidence wasn’t even brought up. As Reslen explained in a tweet, “FAKE NEWS ALERT: Any reports of Tory Lanez’s DNA not being found on the weapon in the Megan Thee Stallion case are FALSE. Today’s pre-trial hearing was just postponed to April 5 and that fake news tweet was sent out before the hearing even started.”

In a statement sent to HipHopDX, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office sounded confident the case the prosecutors have built will fully support the charges against Tory Lanez.
“Although we are legally prohibited from commenting on the evidence and will continue to abide by that obligation, our office is under an ethical duty to only proceed on charges which we believe can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt and which have already been upheld by a judge after presentation of evidence at the preliminary hearing,” the statement read. “We believe the evidence substantially supports the charges and allegations and that evidence will be borne out in court.”
Megan Thee Stallion was shot in both feet in July 2020 following a night out with Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kylie Jenner. A few days later, she accused Tory Lanez of being the triggerman, something he’s repeatedly denied. During this week’s contentious social media exchange, Megan posted and deleted a text from Tory Lanez apologizing for what happened. But, he argued he was apologizing for sleeping with Meg’s ex-best friend Kelsey — not shooting her.
“Good D*ick had me fucking 2 best friends,” he tweeted. “And I got caught. That’s what I apologized 4 … it’s sick how u spun it tho.” As previously mentioned, the trial continues on April 5.
