Tory Lanez’s legal team either has some sort of trick up its sleeve to get him out of jail by this weekend, or the people at Rolling Loud are living under a rock … ’cause he’s still on the festival’s Cali roster.
Tory was in court Tuesday in L.A. where his sentencing hearing was pushed yet again, this time to April 10. After the hearing, Lanez — who was dressed in a jail-issued orange jumpsuit — remained in custody without even an attempt to convince the judge to let him out on bail.
This would seem to pose a big issue for Rolling Loud organizers, who still have Tory slated on the website’s flyer to play the festival Sunday.
We should say, it’s possible, and likely, when the actual artist set times are released, Tory’s name will be left off completely … but it’s odd he’s still on the flyer, considering he was found guilty back in December.
There is, however, fine print on Rolling Loud’s site to cover Tory becoming a no-show — “Opening acts, as well as festival performers, are subject to change or cancellation at any time without notice. No refund will be owed if an opening act or festival performer is changed or cancelled.”
Tory is facing a maximum of 22 years behind bars. Outside court Tuesday, his attorney David Kenner said the artist is holding up well. He didn’t offer much more detail on their efforts to get him out on appeal.
We’ve reached out to Rolling Loud for Tory’s status — no word back, but unless he’s performing live from L.A County jail, it’s obvious how this is gonna go.
