As the first week of shocking testimonies in the Tory Lanez assault trial has concluded, The Shade Room has exclusively learned that Justin Edison, Megan Thee Stallion’s former bodyguard who was also scheduled to testify on Friday, cannot be located.
Meg’s attorney Alex Spiro spoke exclusively to The Shade Room and stated:
We recently learned that Justin Edison disappeared just before he was due to appear in court.
We are also told that “LAPD is currently investigating his disappearance and welcomes any information as to his whereabouts.”
According to Rolling Stone, Judge David Herriford was asked to issue a “body bond,” an arrest warrant, against Meg’s former bodyguard “to signal that prosecutors had given up calling him to the witness stand.”
Another source with knowledge of the situation confirmed Justin’s lawyer has not heard from him since Thursday.
What does Justin have to do with the case?
We’re also told that Justin may have information about the night of the shooting, although he wasn’t there. According to witnesses, Kelsey texted Justin “help” and that Tory “shot” Megan on the night of the shooting. It is also reported that Justin went on the record and allegedly said Tory apologized to him for shooting the rapper.
Prosecutor Alexander Bott revealed a series of text messages Kelsey Harris sent to Megan’s bodyguard at 4:27 a.m., about five minutes after the shooting:
“Tory shot Meg”

After the incident, the former athlete commented on the shooting. He wrote on IG:
If you know me and you know her well enough, not only do you know that I wasn’t physically present at the time [the] events, but you know why. If you don’t know me or her well enough, she’s good. I’m here now, and she’ll never set foot outside without me and a few niggers who don’t aim for feet.
Justin has not uploaded any pictures to his IG account since December 2nd, nor has he currently posted any stories to his page. It is unclear whether he has been in contact with family or friends since Thursday.
Although Justin Edison could not be located, no official missing persons report was filed on his behalf.
Roommates, we hope Justin is found safely. We’ll keep you up to date.
