Tory Lanez’s siblings have remained staunch defenders of their little brother as he was tried, convicted, and later took accountability for shooting Megan Thee Stallion.
For many years, Tory Lanez was the youngest of six siblings. The Peterson siblings lost their mother when Tory was 11 years old. She died following complications from her anemia. The rapper traveled around with his faith healer father after her death.
He was eventually dethroned as the family’s baby when his father remarried a Kenyan woman with whom he had two kids. The umbrella is a strong motive in Tory’s brand, with his fandom going by the moniker Umbrellas.

“I want you to know I’m soooo proud of you,” she penned in part,” and as I tell u every birthday, I know the fam, dad, and mom are proud of you as well….”
She concluded the post by assuring him she would “forever stand” by him and wished the rapper a blessed day. In December 2022, Tory wished an unidentified older brother, whose social media handle @umbrellaworld_ is set to private, a happy birthday.
