“I know u prolly never gone talk to me again, but I genuinely want u to know I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart,” he wrote.
“None the less sh*t should have never happened and I can’t change what did. I just feel horrible,” he stated in another text.
In the series of texts, Lanez not only admitted his regrets but also that he was very drunk at the time of the incident he was apologizing for. Although the series of messages did not directly make reference to the shooting that occurred, TMZ suggested that it is clear what he is talking about.
At the time of his arrest last July, Lanez and Megan were seen together throughout the duration of the night. Earlier in the evening, the two were seen on Megan’s Instagram live at multiple parties with Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kylie Jenner in the Hollywood Hills.
People reported that Lanez had been arrested after leaving the party. Video footage showed that Megan was in the same vehicle as her fellow rapper and that she sustained an injury to her foot that later required her to be treated at a hospital.
Shortly after the incident gained media attention, Megan alleged on her Instagram that she had been shot twice in both of her feet by Lanez.
“Tory shot me. You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people to these blogs lying and sh*t, stop lying,” Megan expressed.
“I suffered gunshot wounds as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me,” she added two days after Lanez’s arrest.
Lanez was initially taken into custody on July 13 and charged with carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle. Later that day, he posted a $35,000 bail and was released.
He is scheduled to make an appearance in court sometime in October. A potential charge of felony assault with a firearm is still under review by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.
Since being named as the alleged shooter, Lanez has not publicly addressed the matter in any way.
Last month, Megan addressed the shooting incident again, this time on an Instagram video. The “Savage” performer filmed herself as she rapped freestyle for over a minute.
“Got shot two times and I ate that sh*t. Bounced back with a Revlon deal,” she mentioned.
