Megan Thee Stallion’s Bodyguard Has Gone Missing Ahead Of His Court Appearance In The Tory Lanez Shooting Case
Canadian Keebler Elf rapper Tory Lanez is currently on trial for allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the summer of 2020. And although the trial has only just begun, it’s already had its fair share of shocking moments, including Megan’s former friend Kelsey Harris retracting her initial statements and Tory being completely blown away by the fact his career will never be as big as Megan’s. And in this week’s cliffhanger episode of Megan vs. The Munchkin, it’s been revealed her former bodyguard Justin Edison has allegedly gone missing ahead of his court appearance.
According to TMZ, the trial has found yet another speed bump with Justin’s alleged disappearance. He was set to take the stand and embody Hotties everywhere by giving his recount of the evening, where court documents reveal he received a text message from Kelsey informing him that Megan had been shot. But since Kelsey is now experiencing a severe case of soap opera-inspired amnesia, Justin’s testimony was critical. But now it’s being reported that Justin hasn’t been heard from since last Thursday.
[Megan’s] attorney, Alex Spiro, tells TMZ … “We recently learned that Justin Edison went missing right before he was scheduled to appear in court. The LAPD is currently looking into his disappearance, and welcome any information about his whereabouts.”
The Shade Room reported Justin’s disappearance first, and it seems very suspicious because it’s been over three weeks since he has posted anything on Instagram.
Judge David Herriford was asked to issue a “body attachment,” a warrant, for Meg’s former bodyguard, “signaling prosecutors had given up on calling him to the stand.”
Another source with knowledge of the situation confirmed that Justin’s attorney hasn’t heard from him since Thursday.
Justin hasn’t uploaded any pics to his IG account since December 2nd nor does he currently have any stories posted to his page. It’s unclear if he’s had any contact with family or any of his friends since Thursday.
Although Justin hasn’t been heard from since last week, the LAPD will not move forward by stating this is a missing person’s case just yet.
LAPD tells TMZ they do not have a missing persons case open for Justin Edison. That doesn’t necessarily mean he isn’t accounted for at the moment — but his alleged disappearance simply hasn’t yet risen to the level of cops needing to classify him as such. We’ve also reached out to the district attorney’s office for comment … no word back yet.
This horrible trial has more plot twists than an 80s miniseries. Will Justin burst into the courtroom screaming, “I OBJECT!” before the final gavel is banged? Hopefully.
