Tory Lanez is doubling down on his innocence since being sentencing for shooting Megan Thee Stallion.

In a statement released on Thursday Lanez, real name Daystar Peterson, made it clear that his apology during his sentencing hearing was not an omission of guilty and reiterated that he has been wrongly convicted.

“Regardless of how they try to spin my words, I have always maintained my innocence and I always will,” the Canadian rapper said in an Instagram statement addressed to his “Umbrella” fan group.

“This week in court I took responsibility for all verbal and intimate moments that I shared with the parties involved … That’s it.”

“In no way shape or form was I apologizing for the charges I’m being wrongfully convicted of,” he wrote. “I remain on the stance that I refuse to apologize for something that I did not do.”
