Megan Thee Stallion’s boyfriend, Pardison Fontaine, issues statement amid Tory Lanez trial
Pardison Fontaine, known to some as Megan Thee Stallion‘s boyfriend, has issued a statementexpressing sympathy and compassion for women who have been victimized. The rapper/songwriter shared the message on his Instagram Story on Thursday after closing arguments were made in the Tory Lanez trial.
“To any woman especially ones of color that has suffered an injustice I feel for you,” Pardison penned. “When you do find the courage to speak up .. it seems you will be ridiculed .. your credibility will be questions.. your entire past will be held under a magnifying glass .. in an instant you can go from victim to defendant in the eyes of the public ..
“To any one with a daughter Sister mother niece or aunt .. I pray for their protection…,” he continued. “I pray for their covering .. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.”
The nearly two-week trial revolves around a 2020 shooting in which Meg alleges she was shot in the foot.
She testified that Tory was the gunman and spoke out about the effect the case, which brought her sexual history to light, has had on her life.
“I feel disgusted, I feel dirty, my own partner is embarrassed,” she said. “I can’t even be happy … I don’t want to talk to friends or family. I don’t want to live. I wish he (Tory) had just shot and killed me if I had to go through this torture.”
Tory has pleaded not guilty to charges of felony assault with a semiautomatic firearm, possession of a concealed, unregistered firearm and discharging a firearm with gross negligence. He faces a maximum sentence of 22 years in prison if convicted.
Jury deliberations began Thursday and will resume Friday afternoon.
