As the first week of shocking testimony wrapped in the Tory Lanez assault trial, The Shade Room has exclusively learned that Megan Thee Stallion’s former bodyguard, who was also scheduled to testify on Friday, Justin Edison, cannot be located.
Meg’s attorney Alex Spiro spoke exclusively to The Shade Room and stated:
We recently learned that Justin Edison went missing right before he was scheduled to appear in court.
We are also told that “the LAPD is currently looking into his disappearance, and welcome any information about his whereabouts.”
According to Rolling Stone, Judge David Herriford was asked to issue a “body attachment,” a warrant, for Meg’s former bodyguard, “signaling prosecutors had given up on calling him to the stand.”
Another source with knowledge of the situation confirmed that Justin’s attorney hasn’t heard from him since Thursday.
What Does Justin Have To Do With The Case?
We are also told that Justin may have information about the night of the shooting, even though he wasn’t there. Kelsey texted Justin “Help” and that Tory “shot” Megan the night of the shooting, according to testimony. It’s also reported that Justin went on record and allegedly said Tory apologized to him for shooting the rapper.
Prosecutor Alexander Bott showed visual of a series of text messages that Kelsey Harris sent Megan’s bodyguard at 4:27 a.m., roughly five minutes after the shooting:
“Tory shot Meg”

After the incident, the former athlete made a statement about the shooting. He wrote on IG:
If you know me and you know her well enough, not only do you know I wasn’t physically present during [the] events, but you know why. If you don’t know me or her well enough, she good. I’m here now, and she’ll never step foot outside without me plus some n*ggas who don’t aim at feet present.
Justin hasn’t uploaded any pics to his IG account since December 2nd nor does he currently have any stories posted to his page. It’s unclear if he’s had any contact with family or any of his friends since Thursday.
Even though Justin Edison has not been able to locate, there hasn’t been an official missing person report filed on his behalf.
Roomies, we hope that Justin is found safe. We’ll keep you updated.
