*Tory Lanez has allegedly admitted that he opened fire on Megan Thee Stallion because he was drunk.
The rapper reportedly sent a text to Megan shortly after the incident on July 12. TMZ has seen the text, in which Tory begs for forgiveness. He wrote, “I know u prolly never gone talk to me again, but I genuinely want u to know I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart.”
According to the report, the reason he shot her in her feet on that fateful night is because “I was just too drunk,” he wrote in the text.
In his message to Meg, Tory never references the shooting or mentions a gun, but said: “None the less s**t should have never happened and I can’t change what did. I just feel horrible.” He adds, “Cuz I genuinely just got too drunk.”

As one Twitter user noted of the situation, “He shot her. He knew he shot her. Admitted he shot her. She didn’t rat him out. But he sent his team on a PR campaign to lie and damage her reputation anyway.”
Late last month, Megan Thee Stallion finally confirmed that it was Lanez who shot her during their wild night out. She took to Instagram Live to explain in her own words what went down that night in Los Angeles after they partied with Kylie Jenner.
“Yes, this n***a Tory shot me. You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs, lying and shit,” she said (see Twitter video above). “Stop lying. Why lie? I don’t understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you’re dragging it,” she added.
Megan went on to deny reports that she physically assaulted Lanez prior to getting shot, and made clear that their argument was not over Kylie Jenner.
“I got hit at the back of my feet because when I got shot I was WALKING AWAY FACING THE BACK,” Megan wrote in an Instagram post. “Why would I lie abt getting shot? Why are y’all so upset that I don’t wanna be in the bed sad ? Why y’all upset that I can walk? … I usually don’t address internet bulls — but y’all people are so sick! God was really watching over me and I’m healing so well!”
