August Alsina Was Allegedly Assaulted By Tory Lanes
On Sept. 17, Alsina posted an extremely dramatic photo on his IG. He was bloodied and bruised holding himself up against a mirrored wall in an elevator. He accompanied the photo with a lengthy post.
“As I’m exiting the building after the show last night, A 4’11 sized leprechaun ran down on me w/ 8 oversized security nigxas, whom I greeted each individually upon their walk up as they tried to press me,” he writes.
Alsina said he was by himself essentially with only one person for security with him. He goes on to name Tory as the person who brutally attacked him.

August Alsina Calls Tory Lanez Ego ‘Broken’
The two apparently had some residual beef. “Tory continues to ask w/ a broken ego why I didn’t dap him up, I go on to tell him.. I was a fan of him and didn’t understand him speaking on my business publicly In the past, because I don’t know him or ever met him until last night.”
Alsina is referring to his “entanglement” with Jada Pinkett Smith that caused a stir. “When he spoke it caught me off guard because of his past actions, i assumed he didn’t like me, that’s all.”
