Tory Lanez is getting attention once more after violently assaulting August Alsina. The R&B rapper alleges that Tory attacked him as he was exiting a concert at the Arie Crown Theater in Chicago on Saturday night. On Sunday, he posted a photo of himself with bleeding lips, along with a description of the event.
August writes, “A 4’11 sized leprechaun ran down on me w/ 8 oversized security nigxas, whom I greeted each individually upon their walk up as they tried to press me. The whole time, I’m one deep. No security.”
August claims the incident happened because he did not greet him. “Tory continues to ask w/ a broken ego why I didn’t dap him up, I go on to tell him.. I was a fan of him and didn’t understand him speaking on my business publicly In the past, because I don’t know him or ever met him until last night.”
When rapping about his relationship with Jada Pinkett-Smith in 2020, he referred to Tory taking potshots at him. He supposed Tory didn't like him and didn't see the point in pretending to be friends with him.
"So when he spoke, it caught me off guard because of his past actions; I assumed he didn't like me, that's all," August explained.
August claims he doesn't shake hands due to his "history of health," which includes a paralyzing autoimmune disease.
He goes on to say that "no disrespectful words were exchanged" and accuses Tory of "hitting a blunt laced with cocaine." "There was never 'fight!' "Simply an assault," he added.
Tory has denied that he was even in the building and was in the studio.“I don’t know what everybody talking about …. But I’ve been in the studio,” he wrote in an Instagram Story. “I’m not in anything negative … Ive been working on myself …. And being a better person.”
