Lanez was found guilty of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, discharging a firearm with gross negligence and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
In her testimony against Lanez, Megan Thee Stallion, whose real name is Megan Pete, alleged that the rapper shot at her feet five times in July of 2020. She told the court that the shooting took place after an argument between the duo at a party in the Hollywood Hills.
Megan reported things got especially heated when they began attacking each other's music careers, "I feel like that really rubbed him the wrong way," she said during her testimony.
According to Megan's testimony, she attempted to walk away when Lanez opened fire, leaving the back of her feet wounded. She eventually got back into the car with Lanez, which was pulled over shortly after.
During the trial, Megan Thee Stallion stated, despite the shooting, she got back in the vehicle because she was wearing a reveling outfit and felt her manager would know what to do if she was able to get in touch with him.
Megan said she needed surgery to remove bullet fragments in her feet.
Lanez's sentencing will take place on January 27. TMZ reports his lawyers were in touch with immigration officials prior to the verdict and we're told there's a strong likelihood he will be forced to leave the country.
