Prior to this, a video that sees August ignoring Tory’s attempt to greet him surfaced online, contradicting the rapper’s initial claim that he’s in the studio the night the alleged altercation happened.
AceShowbiz -More details from an alleged altercation between Tory Lanez and August Alsina are coming to light. A new audio leak has revealed that the “I Luv This S**t” crooner confronted the “Say It” rapper before the latter “sucker-punched” the singer.
On Tuesday, September 20, alleged audio of the incident began to float around online. In a snippet of the audio, the voice of a man that fans believe is August can be heard confronting someone while stating, “I hate when n***as don’t keep the same energy. Why did you speak on my business online?” The other person in the clip continuously asks “what energy” before the snippet ends.
The audio surfaced on social media after footage of Tory attempting to greet August made its rounds online, contradicting Tory’s original claim that he wasn’t at the same place as August on Saturday night, September 17. In the footage, Tory could be seen trying to handshake August but the latter ignored him. According to the 30-year-old singer, he refused to shake Tory’s hand as he’s told by his doctor to “shake as less hands as possible due to corona, & monkeypox.”
In an Instagram post featuring a graphic picture of his injuries, August explained, “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***as, whom I greeted each individually upon their walk up as they tried to press me.” He further stressed that he was alone, stating, “Whole time, I’m one deep. No security.”
August claimed that he “was a bit confused” at how Tory turned himself up “w/ anger after hitting a blunt laced with cocaine obviously,” noting that he “heard the fizzle.” August claimed that Tory “snuck” him when he turned his head to move to the side.
Denying the allegations, Tory said, “I don’t know what everybody talking about…” He claimed that he was “in the studio…,” adding that he’s “not in anything negative” and that he’s “been working on my myself… and being a better person.” He even told DJ Akademiks that “nothing happened” between him and August.
Following the alleged assault, Tory was removed from “Fall Back in Love Comedy & Music Jam” tour as tour creator Rip Micheals said that he witnessed the rapper sucker-punched August in the face. “At this moment we would have to proceed without [Tory] because we want to make sure that every person in that audience has a great time and a great feeling and that synergy of each artist enjoying themselves and having a great time is what it’s all about,” the 40-year-old comedian told TMZ.
Meanwhile, the case is being investigated by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. “We are aware of the allegations that the defendant attacked artist August Alsina and are investigating these claims,” a statement from the D.A.’s office read. “The allegations are serious and will be thoroughly examined.”
