Sharing a picture with blood coming out of his mouth, Singer August Alsina has accused Tory Lanez of attacking him with a group of goons. In the Instagram post, Alsina can be seen dazed and leaning against an elevator wall with blood flowing down his mouth.

In the post, Alsina mentioned everything about the incident, but further confirmation is still awaited.


August Alsina reportedly attacked by Tory Lanez

In the Instagram post, which August Alsina uploaded as evidence, the singer described how rapper Tory Lanez attacked him.

Alsina said he was leaving a show when Tory and a group of his guards came towards him and cornered him. Tory asked August why he did not "dap him up" earlier, and the latter replied that it was because Tory targeted him a few years ago when he spoke about his situation with Jada Pinkett Smith.

Alsina thought Lanez did not like him, so he found it unimportant to pretend they were friends. Alsina said that Lanez punched him while he was trying to get out of the situation and claimed that this was not a fight but an assault.

August said Tory’s crew had recorded the entire incident on camera and asked them to release the footage. Alsina mentioned that he posted the whole thing so everyone could know the true story. Meanwhile, Lanez claimed everything was a lie, stating that he was in the studio. For now, an official statement from the Chicago Police Department is awaited to check if a police report has been filed.
