bodyguard l Megan Thee Stallion who was set to testify in Tory Lanez’s felony trial — but stopped responding to law enforcement this week — was expected to face questions about a past statement he gave to authorities implicating Lanes, the source said. Rolling Stone.

The source says the bodyguard, Justin Edison, earlier told law enforcement that Lenz walked up to him the day after the shooting that hit Meghan in the hospital to say the violent incident was an alcohol-related accident.

Edison — who wasn’t present when the shooting broke out but received a panicked text from Meghan’s ex-boyfriend Kelsey Harris saying “Help/Tory shot meg/911” — told authorities Lenz apologized to him face-to-face during the meeting at a private residence, saying he was drunk. He was very angry and was shooting to the ground when Meghan was accidentally hit, says a source familiar with the situation.

Edison and his attorney did not immediately respond Rolling StoneComment requests. Attempts to reach Lanez’s defense attorneys and prosecutors in the felony case are now unsuccessful amid a Los Angeles jury trial.

Late Friday, Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Alexander Butt asked Judge David Hereford to release a “body appendage” (a type of arrest warrant) for Edison, indicating that prosecutors had given up on inviting him to the stand.

Meghan’s attorney Alex Spiro released a statement Saturday saying that Edison has gone missing, but the search for him is far from over.

A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department said Saturday that it has no information on a missing person investigation involving Edison.

Megan, whose full name is Megan Pete, gave harrowing testimony on the witness stand Tuesday, saying the shooting left her with permanent physical and emotional injuries.

She recalled turning to see Peterson holding a gun and pointing it at her, shouting “Bitch Dancer” and the shots rang out.

Harris also took the witness stand for two days of torturous testimony, during which she disavowed key elements in a detailed statement she gave to prosecutors in September. Harris confirmed she heard the gunshots, but retracted her September claim that she had seen Peterson fire a 9mm semi-automatic handgun five times over the open door of his Cadillac Escalade.


When questioned by Peterson’s attorney about her statement in September under cross-examination, he asked if she was “under the impression” that if she told the prosecution what they “want to hear,” she could “finish this case.”
