After being found guilty of shooting fellow recording artist Megan Thee Stallion, Tory Lanez is reportedly “scared for his life and safety” due to his celebrity status, but that claim is disputed.

A source told the New York Post, “Tory is scared for his life and safety in prison. He feels like he is an instant and direct target because of his celebrity status.”

According to TMZ,  one of his attorneys claimed that the artist is in isolation presently but would prefer to be among the general population. Ceasar McDowell states his client is not afraid of being around the inmates and doesn’t want to get the special treatment most celebrity prisoners receive. McDowell explains that Tory feels he can handle himself in that environment.

Tory’s attorney also states people have briefed the artist about what can and does happen in prison, and he feels he can handle what comes along with it. He feels he can fit in. McDowell also acknowledges more access to programs and resources, and Tory wants to take advantage of those while serving his time.

Lanez, born Daystar Peterson, was convicted in December 2022 for shooting Texas-born rapper Megan Thee Stallion in the foot on July 22, 2020, after a party at Kylie Jenner’s house in California. A jury found Lanez guilty of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and discharging a firearm with gross negligence.
