Tory Lanez assaults August Alsina
Canadian Rapper, Tory Lanez knocked out Singer August Alsina in Chicago, where they had met on tour to perform for The Fall Back Comedy and Music Jam on Saturday, September 17th.
August went ahead to post pictures of himself on Instagram with a broken lip , claiming that Tory Lanez had beaten him up. On his post, he said that he was all alone when Tory came with his security guys and beat him up. Tory then asked him why he hadn’t greeted him .
”I was a fan of him and didn’t understand him speaking on my business publicly In the past, because I don’t know him or ever met him until last night. So when he spoke it caught me off guard because of his past actions, i assumed he didn’t like me, that’s all. Not to mention, with my history of health & condition just recently overcoming being paralyzed, my doctor directed me not to compromise my health while out on road and shake as less hands as possible due to corona, & monkeypox. Never any disrespectful words were exchanged, so i was a bit confused at how somehow he turnt him self up w/ anger after hitting a blunt laced with cocaine obviously, (i heard the fizzle) and he snuck me when I turned my head to move to the side amongst all his antsy moving and to keep an eye on the endless niggas that was w/ him surrounding me. Which was security and some n***a with a gun tucked… whom he then proceeded to run behind and hide to run back in the building. There was never a “fight”! Simply an Assault. Dude has no real friends, and is on a crash out mission. With that said, I was gone keep it G & not come to the net, but you moving with foul intent feeding falsities to blogs to look for a “moment” cus them moments ain’t happening on stage for u. I will assist you in that, gracefully. His ppl got the whole thing on camera, PUT. THE. FOOTAGE. OUT!! ” August wrote on his Instagram page.
A video has circulated online showing the two getting physical each other but Tory Lanez went ahead on his Instagram stories ,that he deleted later, denied the video saying ,he doesn’t know what people are talking about and that he had been in the studio.
The tour creator, Rip Michaels says that he saw Tory punch August in the face. Tory has been removed from the rest of the tour and Los Angeles District attorney office is investigating the alleged fight.
