The 31-year-old showed remorse as he was handed the sentence at an LA courtroom on Tuesday. He shot Megan in the feet during a drunken 2020 argument – that also involved Megan’s best friend and assistant Kelsey Harris.
At his sentencing hearing today, convicted Tory said victim Megan is ‘someone I still care for dearly to this day’ despite the outcome.
Lanez said about the shooting, that will now see him locked behind bars for a decade: ‘I said some very immature things that I shouldn’t have said.
‘I revealed some secrets I shouldn’t have revealed.’

On the last day of Lanez’s 10-day trial on December 23 last year, the jury of seven women and five men unanimously convicted the rapper of three felonies.
He was found guilty of assault with a semi-automatic firearm, shooting a firearm in a grossly negligent manner and carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle.
The assault carried a penalty of up to nine years in jail, the conviction for negligently shooting a gun up to three years and the concealed gun count three years.
Because the jury also found that Lanez caused ‘great bodily injury’ – Megan had three bullet fragments surgically removed from her feet – the assault and negligent shooting felonies carried enhanced penalties.
The musician had previously pleaded not guilty to all three charges.
In her emotional testimony during trial, Megan, 28, told the jury that she and Lanez – with whom she’d been having a sexual relationship – had been to a pool party July 12, 2020 at the home of Kylie Jenner and were in his SUV in the Hollywood Hills with Kelsey Harris when an alcohol-fueled argument erupted.
Megan – real name Megan Pete – asked the driver to stop the car and she got out – which was when she said Lanez yelled ‘Dance b***h’ and fired a gun five times at her, injuring her feet so seriously that she needed surgery.
She testified in court that Lanez offered her and Harris a million dollars to keep quiet about the shooting and asked them not to report him because he was already ‘on probation.’
Megan also said that Lanez later apologized to her, saying he was drunk at the time of the shooting.
