Megan Thee Stallion Opens Up for the First Time About 2020 Shooting Incident


Megan Thee Stallion opened up for the first time about being shot in the foot in 2020 allegedly involving rapper Tory Lanez.

In an interview with “CBS Mornings” co-host Gayle King, asked the rapper if there was an argument in the car and Megan said she was “ready to go” when “everybody else wasn’t ready to go.”

“That’s like normal friend stuff,” Megan said of the disagreement. “We fuss about silly stuff all the time. But … I never put my hands on anybody, I never raised my voice too loud. This was one of them times where it shouldn’t have got this crazy.”

Megan explained that she was in the car with Lanez and the argument began between two people in the backseat.

“So, I get out the car and it’s like, everything happens so fast,” Megan continued. “And all I hear is this man screaming, he said, ‘Dance, bitch!’ And he started shooting. I’m just like, ‘Oh my God.’ He shot a couple of times.”

She said that Lanez was standing up over the window shooting. “I didn’t even want to move. I didn’t want to move too quick, ’cause I’m like, ‘Oh my God, if I take the wrong step, I don’t know if he could shoot something that’s super important. I don’t know if he could shoot me and kill me.”

She tearfully explained that was she scared for her life and said that Lanez offered her $1 million to keep quiet.

He’s [like], ‘I’m so sorry.  Please don’t tell nobody.  I’ll give y’all a million dollars if y’all don’t say nothing.’

And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’  Like, ‘Why are you offering me money right now?’  Help me.  Like, and if you’re sorry, just help me!’

Megan also said that she initially told the cops she’d stepped on broken glass because the George Floyd murder had just happened, and she didn’t want anyone getting shot.

“Even though this person just did this to me, my first reaction still was to try to save us.  I didn’t want to see anybody die.  So I just said, ‘I stepped on glass.'”

The rapper finished the interview by explaining that all she wants from the court proceedings is closure. “I don’t think any of this is for [people who don’t believe me],” she said. “It’s for me like I know this happened to me and I’d rather it play out in court and the facts come out and everything comes out than me having to plead my case. I’m a victim. Like, I’m the victim I’m not defending myself against anything like something happened to me.”
