6:10 PM PT -- During cross-examination of LAPD officer Sandra Cabral, who pulled over the SUV Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanezwere riding in, Cabral said Kelsey Harris had blood and scratches on her right leg, plus a ripped strap on the left side of her bathing suit.
3:18 PM PT -- At the end of opening statements, it's clear Tory's defense strategy is going to be Kelseyfired the gun, and not him.
His attorney, George Mgdesyan, told the jury it was really Megan and Kelsey who were arguing with each other, and that it was jealousy-fueled. He said Tory and Megan had a sexual relationship -- something she's denied in interviews -- and suggested Kelsey was mad because Meg had a history of stealing her boyfriends ... including DaBaby and Ben Simmons.
Finally, Mgdesyan hammered the claim Megan had her back turned when the gun went off, and couldn't possibly know who had fired.
The court is finally hearing opening arguments in the Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion case ... and both sides are laying out what happened the night Meg was allegedly shot in the foot by Tory.
Prosecutors kicked things off on Monday -- claiming that Tory fired 5 shots on the evening of July 12, 2020, striking Megan in both feet -- claiming Tory was set off after Megan insulted his skills by sarcastically calling him a "beautiful artist."
According to the prosecution, Tory's text messages after the fact admitting to being too drunk and apologizing profusely are pretty damning evidence.
You'll recall ... after leaving Kylie Jenner's pool party, Megan, Tory and Kelsey were said to have gotten into a black SUV with a man named Jauquan Smith, who prosecutors say drove Tory to the party and brought a 9mm handgun.
As for Tory's side ... they claim the pair was at Kylie's home for a pool party when things went south and Meg was asked to leave. It appears the defense is trying to make the jury believe Tory was not the trigger man.
Tory's attorney, George Mgdesyan, also argued Tory's DNA wasn't on the gun and that he was wearing a swimsuit during the alleged incident, asking the jury, "Where did he pull the gun from?"
