Megan Thee Stallion speaks out in her first television interview since the shooting incident between her and fellow rapper Tory Lanez back in 2020.
In a clip shared to social media with Gayle King, the Grammy Award-winning emcee recounts the night that Tory Lanez allegedly shot her in both feet following their attendance at a party in Los Angeles.
“It was an argument because I was ready to go and everybody else wasn’t ready to go, but that’s like normal friend stuff,” recalled the “Hot Girl Summer” lyricist. “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.”
She explained how the situation occurred outside of the party they had been attending when she claims that Tory proceeded to stand up over the window of a parked vehicle, shooting at her.
“I get out of the car and it’s like, everything happens so fast,” said Megan. “And all I hear is this man screaming, he said, ‘Dance, b***h! And he started shooting. I’m just like, ‘Oh my God.’ He shot a couple of times.”
As she recalled the incident, which happened two years ago, the Houston-native began to grow emotional.
“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 and kill me,” Megan recalled. “I was really scared ’cause I had never been shot at before.”
Tory was arrested following the shooting and charged for carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle prior to being released on a $35,000 bail the same day. In October of 2020, he was charged with one felony count each of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, personal use of a firearm, and carrying a loaded unregistered firearm in a vehicle.”
Despite pleading guilty in the case, Tory was recently taken into custody earlier this month after violating court orders which halted him from contacting Megan or discussing the case with outside parties.
