Tory Lanez is a famous Canadian singer, songwriter, record producer, and rapper that has brought his own sound to the music industry.

Let’s take a closer look at Tory’s personal life, bio, net worth and career history.

Early Life

Tory Lanez’s real name is Daystar Peterson. He was born on July 27, 1992 in Ontario, Canada. He has immigrant parents.

His mother’s name is Luella Peterson and his father’s name is Sonstar Peterson. His dad was from Barbados.

He has a brother named Orane Forrest. His family started out in Montreal, but eventually relocated to Miami.

When Tory Lanez’s mother passed away his life changed a lot, mainly because his dad had to change jobs and that causes them to move frequently.

Later on, his father remarried and they settled down in Atlanta. Even though Tory wasn’t a fan of the constant moving around, he was grateful for the move to Atlanta.

While living in Atlanta he made a friend named Hakeem. Hakeem gave him the nickname Lanez which he loved.

In 2006, Tory moved to NY to live with his sibling. He was trying to get away from his personal problems that developed when his dad remarried.

He later had to move to an apartment in Toronto, but his grandmother didn’t want to live with him. Tory was forced to take care of himself. He started working before he became legal.

Ultimately, Tory found a home with a few roommates. It was a very stressful situation and it was hard for him to maintain his sanity.

He decided that Tory was going to be the other part of his stage name. He kept Tory because he loved Notorious B.I.G. Once he finalized his stage name he left school.

He started singing, but he never had a teacher, and had no idea what he was doing.

As a young kid Tory always wanted to follow his dreams. Even at a young age he would write songs on a daily basis.

Personal life

Tory Lanez used to have a Jamaican girlfriend but they had a trouble filled breakup.

She reportedly suffered abuse in that relationship and says Tory would make her feel pity publicly and she was scared because she didn’t know what action to take and how to get out of the relationship.

Later on she posted pictures of their messages which exposed him threatening her. He seemingly would apologize every time he hit her, but the abuse continued.

She says that he would treat her like his property and she couldn’t look at anyone else.

Tory never reported any information regarding his dating life or family outside of the relationship drama.

No one has heard anything else from his ex-girlfriend so it is rumored that he payed her to be quiet about the matter.
