Megan The Stallion's ex best friend Kelsey Harries testified yesterday (December 14th) in the ongoing trial for Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion. According to Rolling Stone, when Kelsey walked into the courtroom, she was accompanied with criminal lawyer Daniel A. Nardoni. The lawyer said that Harris planed to assert her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
Judge David Herriford said he conducted an in-chambers proceeding on the matter and determined Harris’ concerns were “legitimate.” Prosecutors then said they would offer her “use immunity” for her testimony, and she was sworn in as a witness.
Kelsey took the witness stand and was granted immunity. Kelsey also revealed that Lanez threatened to shoot her inside a Cadillac Escalade before shots were fired.
Harris also addressed claims that she is the one that shot Megan, saying, “I mean, it’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous.”
Minutes into her examination, Harris told Deputy District Attorney Kathy Ta, “I don’t care to be here today.” She called the trial a “triggering situation,” saying she’s suffering from “anxiety” and dealing with the birth of a child and a recent death. “I just don’t want to be here.”
She later said that Megan lied on her. She explained, “She’s painted the picture that I betrayed her, she’s painted the picture that I’m this bad person, bad friend, that I took hush money. There are many lies.”
Harris also told jurors that she and Megan met Tory Lanez at a Roc Nation event in 2020 and became friends. She said that Megan set her up with Tory but when she caught Covid and was home in Houston for two or three months, she believes Megan slept with Tory.
She also discussed Kylie Jenner's party, saying that everyone was playing beer pong and “having fun,” but described Megan as being “drunk” and “a little off.” She said that at some point after she passed out, Tory arrived at the party. When asked how he was acting, she said, “Tory’s doing his thing — being Tory, flirting.” When asked who he was flirting, she said, “He was flirting with Kylie.”
Harris testified that once Megan was ready to leave, they left with Tory's driver, leaving him behind. Harris said soon after she and Megan left Jenner’s house the first time, Megan told the driver she forgot a “slipper,” so they returned. She said Megan went inside alone, and “apparently a fight or something happened.” Harris said, “She rushed out with Tory. She was like, ‘B*tch, Kylie said we got to get the f*ck out.’ I was like, ‘I’m confused.'”
At that point, all three of them climbed into Peterson's Cadillac Escalade with the driver, Jauquan Smith, where everyone started arguing. She said, “The argument that took place inside carried on. There was so much going back and forth, name calling (between) me and Megan, Tory and Megan, Tory and Me, Megan and Tory.”
Ta asked if Harris remembered Tory saying something to the effect of, “Megan, why aren’t you telling your friend about us?” Harris responded,”Yes, ma’am. Megan) was just like, ‘Don’t listen to him. Why are you telling her that?'”
Harris said that her reaction was “upset, confused.” She continued, “I don’t know what’s going on/ He’s just saying that they had a relationship , they were having a relationship. An argument ensues and just continues. Me and her are arguing about her disloyalty.”
She said “a lot of name-calling” broke out, with everyone “taking jabs at each other.” She recalled telling prosecutors that Tory called the women “b*tches” and “h*es.”
When Ta asked her about her recorded interview with prosecutors in September where she mentioned that Tory threatened to shoot her, she replied, “Do I have to answer that?” when the judge replied, “yes,” Harris said, “Um, yes, ma’am.” When Ta asked if this was in the car, Kelsey said “yes.” When asked what did Tory say, Kelsey said, “Can I take my 5th?” Harris replied, leaving the stand to speak with her lawyer. When she returned, Harris again invoked her right against self-incrimination.
Ta asked, “Why don’t you want to answer that question?” Kelsey responded, “I don’t want to be here.”
