Tory Lanez is apparently being investigated for the alleged attack of August Alsina and has been removed from Rip Michaels' tour as a consequence.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office is investigating the September 17 incident, according to Pitchfork. Alsina alleged in an Instagram post dated September 18 that Lanez assaulted him after he "refused to dap him up or shake his hand."

 “We are aware of the allegations that the defendant attacked artist August Alsina and are investigating these claims. The allegations are serious and will be thoroughly examined.”stated the district attorney for Los Angeles County. 

Lanez has also been kicked off the Fall Back In Love Comedy & Music Jam tour, Rip Micheals, the tour's creator, apparently observed the incident and stated that he couldn't "appear" to be nice with the Canadian rapper for the rest of the trip.

Lanez, on the other hand, has denied any sort of incident occurred when conversing with Akademiks during a recent livestream.

“Nothing happened,” he said. “I don’t even know what this kid is talking about, brother.” Akademiks asked. Lanez said: “So you not involved?” to which Lanez replied: “No, hell no! I don’t know if he’s doing [this for] promo. I don’t know what that n-gga is talking about, bruh.”

August Alsina stated that Lanez took a hit from "a blunt laced with cocaine" and started punching him in the face while his head was turned just before the alleged assault. He then allegedly ran back into the venue, hiding behind one of his security guards.

He went into more detail in a subsequent Instagram post, writing: “As I’m exiting the building after the show last night, a 4’11 sized leprechaun ran down on me w/ 8 oversized security n-gxas, whom I greeted each individually upon their walk up as they tried to press me.
