The Megan Thee Stallion vs. Tory Lanez drama continues! Meg’s legal team is speaking out after reports suggested folks from Tory Lanez’s team created fake emails posing as her team to keep an alleged “smear campaign” against him going. More inside…

The shooting scandal – drama – whatever you want to call it - continues! Smear campaigns, fake emails – it’s a mess!

Tory Lanez claims Megan Thee Stallion has a “smear campaign” against him. Meg’s team feels Tory’s team has launched a “smear campaign” against her. At this point, there is just a lot of back and forth and limited facts.

So, what’s going on? After Tory released his DAYSTAR album where he said he did NOT shoot Meg, a source went to Billboard to spill tea about what’s going on behind-the-scenes. The source alleges people on Tory’s team created fake text message conversations between Tory & Meg and sent them to media outlets. According to the source, Tory’s team allegedly created fake emails pretending to be 300 Entertainment’s Head of Creative, Kevin Leong. The email supposedly contained a link to a report that made claims that the Houston Hottie did not want to testify against Tory.

The publication reports:

The source also alleges that Lanez's team created fake text message conversations between Megan and Lanez, and sent them to various media outlets. A screenshot of an email, sent to Billboard from a different anonymous source, included a fake email account for 300's Head of Creative, Kevin Leong, that was allegedly created by Lanez's team. The email contained a link to a report that claimed that Megan did not want to testify against Lanez.

In a statement to Billboard, 300 Entertainment writes, "In this day and age, digital security is of utmost importance. The email impersonation of our Head of Creative Kevin Leong, with the intent to disseminate false information has been brought to our attention and we are working diligently on Megan's behalf to get to the bottom of the matter."

Meanwhile, a representative for Lanez -- who released a new album, Daystar, last Friday (Sept. 25) -- “strongly denies" that he was the one sending the emails or doctoring fake text messages. "The only commentary which has been made on this topic was the creative output on the album," says the representative. "We are investigating who could be sending these false emails and intend to take action against them.”

The “Say It” rapper-singer took to Instagram to question if blogs were on payroll to continue this smear campaign he thinks has been created against him:

Variety got their hands on emails and reported on what sources told them about the shooting scandal that happened on July 12th in L.A.:

Variety received one of the emails cited by Megan’s reps, which linked to a three-minute video in which a man who claimed to be Lanez’s former bodyguard stated (rather awkwardly) that he had never seen Lanez be violent with women and “wouldn’t do nothing like” the accusations that have been leveled against him. TMZ, which first reported the news, posted a screen shot of an email from LIV nightclub in Miami that claims Megan’s management, Roc Nation, influenced the plaintiff in a lawsuit filed against Lanez, claiming he went on a menacing attack in the club, a claim Roc Nation has denied.

A source close to the situation tells Variety that law enforcement is in possession of the bullets that were removed from Megan’s foot.

Roc Nation declined to comment; a rep for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office did not immediately respond to Variety’s inquiry whether there has been any update to its most recent statement, which reads: “On July 24, our office asked law enforcement for further investigation before making a filing decision on a charge of felony assault with a semiautomatic firearm – personal use of a firearm, against Daystar Peterson [Lanez’s real name]”

Now, Megan’s lawyer - high-powered attorney Alex Spiro (who’s working with Roc Nation & 21 Savage) – said no matter what information the Canadian entertainer puts out, it still doesn’t change the facts.

“We have been made aware of manipulated text messages and invented email accounts that have been disseminated to the media in a calculated attempt to peddle a false narrative about the events that occurred on July the 12. A smear campaign can’t change the truth,” Meg’s lawyer said in a statement to Variety.

And that’s that on that.

Meanwhile…

Tory’s father, Sonstar Peterson, claims his son is INNOCENT.

"This is not a Megan-Tory thing. That's just the billboard advertising so that they can change our opinion or our attention to some other direction. This is much bigger than Megan and Tory. This is first started out as Tory versus the industry. Now, it's taking on a life of their own and they're scared of it because Black folks are waking up. Before the 26th of September, most people had Tory crucified. He's guilty, he's whatever. They did not expect what was about to happen, and now the tone of popular opinion is shifting."

He continued, "There have been a lot of lies that have already been told. I think a lot of these people, be it TIME magazine who put Megan on their front cover as the most influential person fo the year and then put Tory in another page as being the poster child for how to block troublesome artists on your Spotify. I want y'all to know very clearly: This game ain't over yet. When the stuff really starts to come out of the closet, they will realize who was right, who was wrong."
