Tory’s father Sonstar Peterson goes off in courtroom and outside courthouse after son's guilty verdict — “It's not over God does not lose”
Tory Lanez Dad Sends a Message to JAY-Z/Roc Nation, Alex Spiro & Prosecutor Kathy Ta
Sonstar Peterson — the father of Tory Lanez gives fiery speech outside court after his son was found guilty of shooting Megan Thee Stallion.
Apparently, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter founder of Roc Nation management, which manages the Houston rapper, was the source of some ire from irate members of the gallery — Megan signed to Roc Nation back in September 2019.
On Friday (Dec. 23), a 12-person jury convicted Tory Lanez on all three charges related to the July 2020 shooting of Megan Thee Stallion. According to Law & Crime senior reporter Meghann Cuniff, the announcement of the verdict got an immediate rise out of the Canadian rap-crooner's father who screamed out in the court.
Tory's dad vent his frustrations following Son’s guilty verdict outside the courtroom.
“This is not over. It's not over. God does not lose,” he was captured on video screaming to an assembled crowd of supporters. "I know that this is wickedness.”
Before making his grand exit, Tory's dad also railed against Roc Nation.
“Roc Nation, you will crumble!” he yelled to the top of his lungs before hopping into an awaiting SUV.
“A crazy and downright scary scene in the courtroom as his father and stepmother screamed about wicked injustice,” Law & Crime reporter tweeted. “Tory Lanez’s father stood up guest and screamed. 'This is a wicked system!’ He screamed at the prosecutors that they are evil and they know exactly what they did here. His stepmother stood up screaming and yelling. Father was yelling about 'Roc Nation.””
“One woman turned and looked at the reporters sitting behind her, including me, and said, ‘Jay Z is a bitch. Report that: Jay Z is a bitch,”’ Cuniff posted.
Lanez, whose legal name is Daystar Peterson, is facing up to 22 years and eight months in prison at his sentencing set for Jan. 27. He’s also facing subsequent deportation since he’s a citizen of Canada.
“The jury got it right. I am thankful there is justice for Meg,” said Megan’s attorney Alex Spiro.
“I want to start by highlighting the bravery of Megan,” District Attorney George Gascón added. “You showed incredible courage and vulnerability with your testimony despite repeated and grotesque attacks that you did not deserve. You faced unjust and despicable scrutiny that no woman should ever face and you have been an inspiration to others across LA County and the nation.”
