    Megan Thee Stallion's Boyfriend Pardison Fontaine Released A Statement About Supporting Women Amid The Tory Lanez Shooting Trial

    "To any woman, especially ones of color, that has suffered an injustice, I feel for you."

    On Thursday, jury deliberations began as Tory Lanez faces charges for allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot during a roadside dispute on July 12, 2020, in the Hollywood Hills.

    Tory faces three felony charges: discharging a firearm with gross negligence, assault with a semiautomatic firearm, and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. The Canadian-born rapper has pleaded not guilty but could face up to 22 years in prison and deportation if convicted.

    Last Tuesday, the "Savage" rapper shared an emotional testimony as she recounted the events from that night.

    "He was holding the gun pointing at me," Megan said, according to KABC. She claimed that he said, "Dance, bitch" and fired his gun, injuring both of her feet. 

    "I froze ... I felt shocked," she said. "I wasn't really sure if this was happening ... I looked at the ground and saw the blood … everyone was shocked."

    Throughout the trial, Megan has received countless messages of support from fans and celebrities alike...

    But through it all, Megan's boyfriend and fellow rapper Pardison "Pardi" Fontaine has remained by her side.
