Tory Lanez has been ordered to stay on house arrest until his Megan Thee Stallion trial starts, according to TMZ.

TMZ reports that during a court hearing in LA on Wednesday, a judge ordered the rapper to be put on house arrest starting Friday and lasting through November 28. The order came after Tory violated his bail by getting into an altercation with August Alsina last month.

Tory is currently awaiting trial on charges stemming from shooting and injuring Megan Thee Stallion following a July 2020 pool party in the Hollywood Hills. He is charged with felony counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, personal use of a firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. The Canadian rapper faces up to 22 years in prison if convicted on all charges. He has pleaded not guilty.
