Tory Lanez‘s shooting trial has officially begun, and on day one, prosecutors stated Megan Thee Stallion’s estranged friend Kelsey Harris would testify against Lanez. The prosecution said that she will state that Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, shot the rapper, whose real name name is Megan Pete.
Leading up to the proceedings, prosecutors were unsure about whether Harris would testify. For two years, she had remained silent about what she saw take place. Harris and the rapper severed their friendship after the shooting in July 2020.
On Dec. 12, Los Angeles County Assistant District Attorney Alexander Bott made his opening statement to jurors.
“Kelsey will tell you that she just saw her close friend get shot by the defendant,” Bott said, according to Rolling Stone. He said that Harris allegedly saw the rapper bleeding from her foot as she lay in the driveway of the Hollywood Hills home, and he added that Harris rushed to be by the side of her friend.
“She’ll tell you she didn’t know if the defendant still had this gun. She didn’t know what the defendant was capable of or if he was going to continue his assault.”
Bott continued, “Her defensive instincts kicked into gear, and she approached the defendant. She’ll tell you the defendant physically assaulted her at that point. He pulled her by her hair, and he either punched her or slapped her.”
Court documents allege that Harris approached Lanez after he fired five shots.
