The rapper is facing a third felony charge after the 2020 Megan Thee Stallion shooting incident.
Prosecutors added a new charge of discharging a firearm with gross negligence on Monday 5th December, amid ongoing jury selection for the trail to begin.
Lanez allegedly shot Megan in the foot in July 2020 after a party at Kylie Jenner's house.
Lanez, whose name is Daystar Peterson, previously pleaded not guilty to one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
The rapper also faces an allegation that he personally inflicted great bodily injury to Megan Thee Stallion.
The new charge faces up to six years in prison and he could be deported from the US to Canada if he is found guilty.
If Tory Lanez is convicted on all counts, he faces a maximum sentence of 22 years.
The 30-year-old rapper allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion's feet after an argument in the Hollywood Hills.
Stallion described her injuries as 'bleeding profusely' and the trial is set to begin later this month.
