Tory Lanez Tries To Distance Himself From Canada In Bail Motion

Tory Lanez, who is serving a 10-year prison sentence, asked a judge to grant him bail while lawyers appeal his conviction. 

Lanez attempted to downplay his connection to his home country in his latest attempt to regain his freedom. The Canadian artist insisted he will stay in Los Angeles if he’s released from prison, according to a bail motion obtained by reporter Meghann Cuniff.  “Although the Peterson family originally hails from Canada, they do not have strong ties to this location,” his lawyers argued.

“Mr. Peterson does have a close friend who is like family that he helps provide for her child, despite this not being his biological child. Additionally, a couple of Mr. Peterson’s siblings live in Canada but frequent the Los Angeles area to join their family.”

The motion continues, “The converse is not true, as Mr. Peterson does not visit his home country often. When he does, it is for employment and at this time he will visit his friends and family.”
