Tory Lanez is facing more legal problems as he’s being sued for a hit-and-run accident that took place in Miami early this year.
A man named Barry Fine filed a lawsuit against Lanez stemming from an incident on January 23. According to XXL.com, Fine claims that a person driving the Canadian rapper’s 2016 Range Rover hit another car that was propelled into Barry’s 2020 Porsche. Fine says he sustained serious injuries, including disfigurement. He is suing Lanez for negligence, saying that the rapper is “vicariously liable under the dangerous instrumentality doctrine for the damages caused by the unknown driver.”
Meanwhile, Lanez is currently out on $250,000 bail and is facing a felony assault charge for allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot on July 12, 2020, in Hollywood Hills. Rolling Stone reports that he is discussing a plea bargain with the Los Angeles District Attorney in that case.
As Lanez copes with both cases, he just announced that he is dropping his sixth solo album, Alone at Prom, on December 1.
