Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, is accused of assault with a semiautomatic weapon and using a firearm to seriously injure someone in a 2020 altercation with the rap queen.
Lanez denies all of the charges.
After a party at Kylie Jenner’s Hollywood house in July of that year, the WAP hitmaker said she was in a car with Lanez, his bodyguard, and her friend Kelsey Harris when a fight broke out.
Megan Thee Stallion, whose actual name is Megan Pete, claimed that she had grown close to Lanez in the months preceding the incident.
Pete said she also occasionally engaged in sexual activity with the Canadian rapper.
The witness claimed that Megan Thee Stallion demanded to be allowed out of the car after an altercation broke out in which Harris, who only learnt of the sexual relationship that evening, had a “crush” on Lanez.
The Savage singer claimed that after saying “Dance, bitch,” Lanez pointed a gun at her and started shooting.
“I’m in shock. I’m scared. I hear the gun going off and I can’t believe he’s shooting at me. I did not know he had a gun that night,” she told the court.
Megan Thee Stallion, who was just wearing a thong bikini, eventually consented to get back into the car despite being in excruciating pain and bleeding from both feet.
She recalled that he began to apologise and promised to offer her a million dollars if she didn’t speak up.
A little while later, police pulled over the car, and Megan Thee Stallion was taken to the hospital for treatment after claiming to have injured her feet on shattered glass.
A gun that was still warm to the touch was discovered on the floor next to where Lanez had been sitting, according to testimony given earlier in the trial in downtown Los Angeles.
According to the prosecutor, tests later revealed that Lanez and Harris had both been exposed to gunshot residue.
On Monday, Lanez’s defence counsel George Mgdesyan urged the jurors to be impartial.
He argued that this was a “case of jealousy” and vowed to disprove the allegations made against his client.
