They told XXL: “Tory has not been deported and is self-quarantining with his family in Florida. This is a perfect example of false information being spread regarding this case, his whereabouts and his character.”

A previous statement added: “He’s in good spirits and looks forward to having the truth come to light about that night and wishes nothing but the best for Meg.”

Lanez was arrested on charges of concealing a weapon in his vehicle, and was released later that day after posting $35,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on October 13.

Last month, Megan Thee Stallion hit out at Draya Michele after she joked about the shooting.
