Tory Lanez violated restraining orders for Megan Thee Stallion, prosecutors say
A judge ordered that rapper Tory Lanez be remanded into custody Tuesday after prosecutors said he violated a restraining order obtained by his former girlfriend Megan Thee Stallion.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office said in a pretrial hearing that Lanez, whose legal name is Daystar Peterson, violated two types of orders filed in his case.
One is a "discovery protective order," and the other is a temporary criminal restraining order.
Lanez violated the orders by addressing his ex-girlfriend directly on social media and by discussing DNA evidence, prosecutors told the judge.
His attorney, Shawn Holley, said the district attorney's office asked for his bail to be revoked entirely or increased to $5 million.
"We are pleased that the court rejected those outrageous requests," Holley said.
Lanez is scheduled for trial in September on one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
