Tory Lanez said he has always maintained my innocence
The Canadian rapper wrote in the statement, “I have never let a hard time intimidate me. I will never never let no jail time eliminate me. Regardless of how they try to spin my words, I have always maintained my innocence and I always will. This week in court, I took responsibility for all verbal and intimate moments that I shared with the parties involved… That’s it.”
“In no way shape or form was I apologizing for the charges I’m being wrongfully convicted of,” the 31-year-old added. “I remain on the stance that I refuse to apologize for something that I did not do.”
Moreover, he continues, “I’ve faced adversity my whole life and every time it looked like I would lose, I came out on top. This is nothing but another moment where my back is against the wall and I refuse to stop fighting till come out victorious. Tough times don’t last, tough people do.”

“A common misconception is that I have no remorse, which is not true,” he said. “Everything I did wrong that night I take full responsibility for. I will do better.”
