TORY Lanez is known professionally as a Canadian rapper, singer-songwriter, and record producer.

The 29-year-old has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons as he is scheduled to appear in court on September 23, 2021 in relation to the shooting of Megan Thee Stallion back in 2020.

Is Tory Lanez going to jail?

Lanez is scheduled to appear in court on September 23 and many fans are wondering if he is headed to jail after being charged with assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.

He is also in legal trouble after violating a restraining order Megan had in place after performing at the Rolling Loud music festival with DaBaby.

On September 21, Lanez started trending on Twitter after he seemed to wipe all his social media accounts and tweeted, "It's been real."

He is currently out on a $250,000 bond.

While it is unknown at this time what a judge will rule tomorrow, Lanez faces up to 22 years in prison if convicted of the assault charge.

Was Tory Lanez involved in a hit and run?

On top of worrying about jail time, Lanez is having more legal troubles after a lawsuit was filed against him on September 22, 2021.

The Plaintiff, Barry Fine, alleges that he was disfigured after a hit-and-run incident involving a car that is allegedly owned by the rapper.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, Fine claims he was part of a “chain reaction rear-end collision" that occurred after an unknown driver in Lanez's 2016 Range Rover "[struck] one vehicle propelling that vehicle into [his] vehicle.”

Fine claims that the crash caused him to sustain serious injuries and property damage, including: disfigurement, physical and mental pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, a permanent injury, significant scarring, and out-of-pocket expenses.

He is seeking more than $30,000 in damages and is asking for the rapper and his insurance company to pay the difference between his car’s value before the accident and its value after the repairs.

Lanez has yet to comment on the lawsuit.

What have people said about Tory Lanez's potential jail sentence?

After Lanez seemed to wipe his social media, many fans took to Twitter to express their feelings about the case and many were quick to jump to Megan's defense.

One fan said: "I don't feel back for Tory lanez he was too smug about shooting a black woman for no reason if you ask me," while another added, "It's funny to me how @torylanez might be going to jail for VOP for performing at Rolling Loud because Meg was there and not the gun situation with Meg."

Another user said: "I hope Tory lanez is in jail for the rest of his life I hope he never sees the sun again and this is coming from someone who thinks the prison system should be abolished."
