Bodyguard Megan Thee Stallion was reportedly missing after the rapper and his former assistant testified against Tory Lanez earlier this week.
According to TMZ, hitmaker Justin Edison has been reported missing, but a missing person file has not been opened by the LAPD. Edison remains the lead in the case and is believed to have critical information that could help decide whether fellow rapper Megan Tory Lanez, 30, should be convicted of the crime.
Lanez pleaded not guilty to assaulting Megan during Kylie Jenner’s pool party in 2020. Rapper Body, 27, was shot in the leg by Lanez after leaving Jenner’s home with Megan’s assistant Kelsey Harris.

Edison has drawn attention during the trial when he received several text messages from Megan’s first assistant Kelsey Harris following the shooting.
Finding Edison is a top priority since his court appearance could help clear up the damning testimony Kelsey Harris gave earlier this week.
The day after Megan Thee Stallion testified that Lanez shot her in the leg, Harris told jurors Wednesday that Lanez also said he was going to shoot her. But when prosecutors asked the former aide to explain exactly what Lanez said in his threats, he invoked his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent.
However, he told the court it was “ridiculous” to believe Harris himself pulled the trigger and shot Megan Thee Stallion in the leg. District Attorney Kathy Ta asked, “Why don’t you want to answer that question?”
Ta suggested that the reason Harris wouldn’t explain what happened might be that Lanez was sitting about 20 feet away in the courtroom.

“I don’t care — but I don’t want to be here,” said Harris, who, before his testimony began Wednesday, brought his own attorney a fifth plea in hopes of not having to testify at all.
But after hearing assurances from Assistant District Attorney Alex Bott that he did not want to prosecute Harris for anything he said on the witness stand, Judge David Herriford granted him a “remand.” Lanez — who wore a tan shirt and black turtleneck Wednesday in a downtown Los Angeles criminal court — pleaded not guilty to assaulting Megan with a small weapon and carrying a concealed weapon in a car. He could spend up to 12 years in prison if convicted. Last week, the LA DA added another felony charge – discharging a firearm with gross negligence – that carries an additional 6 years in prison, plus a felony for the Canadian-born musician, whose real name i.e. Daystar Peterson. He denied the third charge. In a full day of testimony on Tuesday, Megan told the jury of eight women and four men that she and Lanez went to a pool party on July 12, 2020 at Kylie Jenner’s home – which could be referred to as defense witness — and was in his SUV in the Hollywood Hills with Megan’s assistant/best friend Harris when the altercation began.

He also testified that Lanez offered him and Harris a million dollars to settle the matter.
Lanez — who was free on $350,000 bond — later apologized, saying he was drunk at the time of the shooting. Meanwhile, his defense team suggested that it was Harris, not Lanez, who fired the shots.
In court on Wednesday, Harris – dressed all in black – called the allegations that he shot Megan “ridiculous”.
But he admitted that in the SUV after a pool, he and Megan argued about their competition for Lanez’s affections. At the beginning of his testimony, Harris – who has not seen Megan since the shooting – told Today, “I don’t want to be here today.” It’s a triggering situation. My name was thrown around – lies from Megan. I don’t want to be there. “She (Megan) took pictures that I betrayed her, that I was this bad person … that I took ordinary money.”
Harris told the jury of seven women and five men – another will represent one of the female jurors on Wednesday – that she and Lanez were ‘more than friends’ before they returned to her home town of Texas to and his family stayed at that time. The Covid-19 crisis.
But by the time he returned to Los Angeles, Lanez’s relationship with Megan had become close, the court heard.

At a party around the pool at Kylie Jenner’s house in July 2020, “Megan was drunk,” Harris said. “His behavior stopped. He laughed a lot.
But, he added, “Tory is Tory, hanging out with Kylie.”
Ta was asked what happened when Harris, Megan and Lanez drove off in his SUV, Harris replied, “I’ll answer that.”
When Judge Herriford said, “Yes,” he said, “Megan’s talking. There was a lot of back and forth, to name a few, between me and Megan and Tory.
When Tory talked about her sexual relationship with Megan, Harris said, Megan was like, ‘Don’t listen to her…. Why are you telling her?’ I’m confused – I don’t know what’s going on.
Harris said she and Megan argued about her (Megan’s) relationship with Lanez and his “disloyalty.”
“Megan and Tory were beating each other up. She started attacking Tory’s career as an artist. Everyone insulted each other.
Harris told the jury that he “doesn’t remember” seeing Lanez kick Megan.
“I don’t know what I saw – it was a blur,” he said.
DDA Ta reminded Harris that last September, in an interview with the DA and police, she said she saw Lanez, ‘shooting over the car window…He was aiming the gun straight, but always in a downward direction toward Megan.
‘I don’t remember what I told you in September,’ she responded. ‘I said a few things that weren’t true.’

When Ta confronted Harris with the question: ‘You saw what happened during the shooting, didn’t you?’ Harris replied, ‘No, honestly no.’
And when Ta reminded her of her September 2022 interview with the DA and cops in which she said she had seen Lanez shooting at Megan, Harris said: ‘In that interview, I was not a hundred percent truthful….This was a night of alcohol. I don’t know.’
‘Did you shoot Megan?’ Ta asked her. ‘No,’ she answered.
‘Who shot Megan? Ta then queried. ‘All I heard was shots – I did not see who was shooting,’ said Harris.
‘Did you say in that September interview that after the shooting, Tory physically assaulted you?’ asked Ta. ‘I said a lot of things,’ Harris responded.
Exasperated by Harris’ vague responses and claims she didn’t remember, Ta asked her, ‘What’s going on with you today….In September you gave us a lot of details (about the shooting) but today everything is a blur to you.
‘What happened between September and today?’
Harris replied that she had been under a lot of stress, dealing with a death in her family, a sick baby and the fact that ‘I didn’t want to be here’ in court Wednesday.
Asked by Ta if Lanez had tried to contact her since her September interview with the police and DA, Harris said ‘No.’
Harris did concede that after the shooting, she sent the text messages to Megan’s security guard saying, ‘Help’, ‘Tory shot Meg,’ and ‘911.’
But when Ta asked her why she had sent the texts if she hadn’t actually seen Lanez shoot Megan, she replied, ‘Assumption….I was in a panic.’
Ta showed the jury photos Harris had taken of bruises she said in the September interview had been caused by Lanez’ assault on her after the shooting.
But when Harris was asked Wednesday how he got the wound, he replied, “I don’t know.”
When Ta asked him why he wasn’t telling the truth, Harris replied, “To protect myself… I don’t want to hurt myself.”
“How can you hurt yourself?” Today took revenge. ‘Did you shoot Megan? “No,” Harris said. He also told the court that after the shooting he “didn’t see” the blood coming from Megan’s injured leg, or the bloody towel in the back of the SUV that Megan was using to clean up the blood.
Reminding Harris of the penalty for perjury, Ta asked him again, “Didn’t you know Meg was bleeding all over the back of the car?”
“I didn’t see any bleeding,” Harris said.
When Lanez called Harris to the hospital where Megan was taken after the shooting, he said he was “very sad” and said he was drunk at the time of the shooting. But on the witness stand Wednesday, when Ta asked him, “Tory said why is he apologizing?” Harris replied “No”.
“Did you ask him why he apologized?” said Ta. ‘No.’ he replied again.
