The 29-year-old rapper attended a court hearing in Los Angeles where his criminal case remains pending after he was charged with felony assault for allegedly shooting Megan, 26, in the foot in July 2020.

A judge increased his bail from $190,000 to $250,000 for violating a protective order to stay away from Megan with his surprise appearance last month at the Rolling Loud concert in Florida where she also performed, according to an article by TMZ.

The bail conditions were modified by the judge to specifically prohibit Tory from attending events where Megan will be present.

The judge also warned Tory, real name Daystar Shemuel Shua Peterson, that if the issue arises again he will be remanded into custody.

Prosecutors filed a motion earlier this month to hold Tory in contempt of court for violating the restraining order.

DaBaby, 29, performed a controversial set laced with homophobic remarks as the next act after Megan at Rolling Loud and was joined by Tory who took the stage in costume before revealing his identity and performing with DaBaby.

If convicted, Tory faces a possible maximum sentence of 22 years and eight months in state prison.

Megan was shot in the foot in July 2020 after leaving a house party in the Hollywood Hills and accused Tory of being the shooter in August on Instagram Live.

Tory released his fifth album Daystar in September 2020 and denied shooting Megan as he referenced the shooting on nearly every song.

He pleaded not guilty in November to charges related to the shooting.
