The prosecutors in the case have requested that Lanez receive a sentence of 13 years for his actions. In a sentencing memo, they stated that along with the crimes he was convicted of, he also re-traumatized Megan Thee Stallion when he made social media posts about the case. They say that he encouraged many of his more than 2 million followers to attack her.

Megan Thee Stallion delivered a victim impact statement this week.

“Since I was viciously shot by the defendant, I have not experienced a single day of peace,” she said in a statement read by Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Kathy Ta, according to the Associated Press. “Slowly but surely, I’m healing and coming back, but I will never be the same.”
During the trial, Megan Thee Stallion testified that the “Luv” rapper shot a gun at the back of her feet and told her to dance as she walked away from an SUV they were riding in. The two musicians and a friend and bodyguard had just left a party at Kylie Jenner’s Hollywood Hills home.
