Tory Lanez’s jail call with Megan Thee Stallion’s former friend Kelsey Harris proved crucial in his recent shooting conviction.
The audio of that call has now been leaked online. The rapper-singer, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, allegedly called Harris five hours after the shooting, at around 9:05 a.m. on July 12, 2020. Although he does not explicitly admit to shooting Megan during the call, he apologizes for his actions, claiming that he was too drunk.
“I know she [Megan] is probably never, ever going to talk to me again,” Tory says in the audio, which YouTuber Nique at Nite shared. “But I just wanted to let you know, bruh, I was just so fucking drunk. I have no idea what the fuck was going on, bruh, like a deadass. I’d never do anything like that… I was just so fucking drunk, n-gga, that I couldn’t figure out what the fuck was going on. Regardless, that will not make anything right, and it will not make my actions right.”
Tory then asks Harris if she has the contact information for his security guard and driver, Jaquan Smith, and if she does, she should talk to him about how to bail.

I can easily confirm that the audio floating around of Tory Lanez’s jail call to Kelsey, the gunshots, Kelsey’s interview with prosecutors etc are authentic. Court can release exhibits after trials, and that’s what happened here. I don’t have my own copies yet but will soon.
Deputy District Attorney Alexander Bott read from the call transcript during the trial, arguing that it would take “mental gymnastics” to interpret it as anything other than an apology for shooting Megan.
Tory was found guilty on all three counts: assault with a firearm resulting in great bodily harm, possession of a concealed, loaded, and unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and discharging a firearm with gross negligence. He faces a maximum sentence of 22 years and eight months in prison. His sentencing is set for January 27.
