Sonstar Peterson uploaded a video on Instagram Thursday (Jan. 12) about his son’s recent criminal case in which he was convicted of firing shots at Houston hottie, injuring her feet during a drunken dispute in July 2020.
It comes after Peterson caused a stir on the last day of the trial expresses his anger at the jury’s verdict both inside and outside the courthouse in Los Angeles, blasting JAY-Z — whose Roc Nation company manages Megan — in the process.
During the 40-minute sermon on social media, Peterson said both he and Tory, as well as other members of their family, forgave Megan “a long time ago” for reporting Tory to the police over the alleged shooting that he faces for. to 22 years and eight months behind bars.
“This may come as a shock to many of you, but guess what?” he said. “Both my son, myself and others in our family have long since decided that we will have no animosity towards Megan Pete aka Megan Thee Stallion. We forgave that girl a long time ago. A long time ago.”
Peterson — a former pastor and ordained minister — went on to say their decision stemmed from the knowledge that forgiveness is essential to one’s spiritual and physical well-being, and that harboring anger can cause sickness and disease.
“We know that the principle of forgiveness is important to purify one’s heart, to purify one’s soul, and to not be bound by hatred,” he continued. “Hatred, anger, bitterness – these things can actually be diseases of the bones, it’s been proven.
“And that can cause disease in your body because you’re holding on to something that’s negative to the real life force in your life.”
Although he and Tory seem to have let go of any animosity towards Megan, Peterson remained steadfast in his fight against what he referred to as “the machine.”
“Some will no doubt actually question: Is he actually saying that Tory forgave Megan for everything that’s going on?he added. “Yes, we have forgiven her. But what we will not back down from is the machine.”
Tory Lanez was found guilty on all three counts he was charged with on December 23rd. They included assault with a semi-automatic firearm, possession of a concealed, unregistered firearm and discharging a firearm with gross negligence.
After the guilty verdict was handed down, allegedly Sonstar Peterson labeled the justice system “evil” and called two of the prosecutors “evil” before they are forcibly removed from the courtroom. Law and crime reporter Meghann Cuniff called it a “crazy and downright scary scene.”
Peterson continued his angry tirade outside the courthouse, telling reporters he had “witnessed the worst mistake this world has ever seen.”
He then read aloud a list of names that included Megan Thee Stallion’s attorney Alex Spiro, Roc Nation COO Desiree Perez, “and the entire Roc Nation evil system, including you, JAY-Z. You who say you rose from the gutter, but you have bartered and bartered the souls of young men—and you still do.”
Tory Lanez was supposed to be sentenced on January 27, but that date has since been moved delayed to February 28 amid a major shakeup for the rapper’s legal team.
Earlier this month, the Toronto native replaced his defense lawyer George Mgdesyan with David Kenner, who famously helped Snoop Dogg beat his 1993 murder case and also formerly represented Suge Knight.
The change was made because of Lanez’s plan to appeal his conviction. “I don’t appeal, so we had to get someone on board to handle the appeal,” Mgdesyan said Rolling stones‘s Nancy Dillon.
While Tory has yet to serve his potentially decades-long prison sentence, an alleged mugshot of the rapper went viral on social media earlier this week thanks to him flashing a carefree smile in the photo.
