HipHollywood can confirm that rapper Tory Lanez has been arrested on felony gun charges.

Lanez, who is expected to perform on Saturday during the Coachella Valley Music Festival, was taken into custody on Wednesday in Florida after police found a hand gun and weed in his car.

The Miramar Police Department tells HipHollywood that the Canadian rapper was pulled over for a routine traffic stop when they discovered Lanez had an invalid license.

We are told that officers then searched the car after noticing a “strong odor of marijuana. Upon further investigation, officials found “less than 20 grams” of weed in the glove box. We are told officers also found a “concealed loaded unholstered firearm” in the center console.

Daystar Peterson, the rapper’s legal name, was taken to the Broward County Main Jail, where he was charged with carrying a concealed weapon-firearm, possession of cannabis, failure to register vehicle, operating a motor vehicle with invalid license and failure to show proof of insurance.

Lanez later posted $1,000 bond.

HipHollywood reached out to the artist’s rep, but so far, no word back.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
