Tory Lanez has been transferred to a state prison, where he will continue to serve his 10-year sentence for shooting hip-hop star Megan Thee Stallion.
The 31-year-old, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, was admitted into North Kern State Prison in Delano, California, on Tuesday, according to prison records.
In February of this year, North Kern made headlines when a 51-year-old inmate named Ramon Escobar reportedly strangled his cellmate, Juan Villanueva, to death. He was charged with first-degree murder for the crime. TMZ reported that Escobar was already serving multiple life sentences for prior murder convictions, while Villanueva was convicted for aggravated sexual assault of a 14-year-old.
A new mugshot was also taken of Lanez, who maintained a blank expression in the photo.
The rapper was sentenced to 10 years in prison in August after he was found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion, whose real name is Megan Pete, in the foot after the pair left a party in Los Angeles in 2020.
A lot of fans has been showing support for Tory including Mega Streamer Adin Ross. Who recently commented “We don’t care. Free Tory”, under a recent post by Megan Thee Stallion.
