Rapper Tory Lanez has been charged with shooting Megan Thee Stallion during an argument in July, and could face up to 23 years in prison if convicted.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has announced that Tory Lanez has been charged with one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle following an argument with Megan Thee Stallion in the Hollywood Hills on 12 July.

Tory Lanez's arraignment is due to take place next Tuesday (13 October) in LA, and if charged he faces up to 23 years in state prison.

Back in July Megan Thee Stallion revealed she "suffered gunshot wounds", and added that she was "incredibly grateful to be alive". She later revealed that she was shot in both feet, and said she "had to get surgery to get the shit taken out, get the bullets taken out, and it was super scary."

Tory Lanez was arrested shortly after the incident for possession of a concealed weapon in an SUV, but was released after posting bail.

As The Guardian reports, prosecutors are due to recommend that the rapper's bail be set at $1.1million during his arraignment next week.

During an Instagram Live in August, Megan Thee Stallion set the record straight and called out Tory Lanez for causing her gunshot wounds. She said, "Yes this n***** Tory shot me. You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs lying and shit. Stop lying. Why lie? I don't understand."

Tory Lanez broke his silence on the incident last month by releasing his surprise album DAYSTAR, which saw him deny shooting Megan Thee Stallion.

Last week Megan Thee Stallion teamed up with Young Thug on "Don't Stop". Yesterday (8 October) she announced her Don’t Stop Scholarship Fund for female students of colour.
