Megan Thee Stallion has finally addressed the events which took place the night she was allegedly shot in the foot by Canadian rapper Tory Lanez at a Hollywood Hills pool party in 2020.
The 27-year-old rapper, whose real name is Megan Pete, sat down with Gayle King on CBS Mornings for her first TV interview about the incident on Monday.
In a video clip posted on the CBS Mornings Twitter page Megan said:
"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. So I get out of the car, and it's like everything happens so fast. And all I hear is this man screaming. And he said, 'Dance, bitch.' And he started shooting. Like, he shot a couple of times. And I was so scared."

“Uhm, I didn’t have a sexual relationship with Tory.”

"She took too long to answer the sexual relationship question, lol, yes y’all did "

"Now Meg, you had me up until the no sexual relationship part, we are grown, you can tell the truth..."
"This situation should’ve just been handled in the court and off the internet because I’m tireddd..."
"Did she just say they didn’t have a sexual relationship?? Yeah no lol if you gon sit up there and lie about that, don’t even do the interview. Her PR team failed her. This was a mistake!"

Meanwhile, IOL reports Megan claims Tory tried to silence Megan by offering to pay her over R15 million.

Tory has been charged with one count of assaulting Megan with a semiautomatic firearm and one count of carrying a concealed, loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle. He was also served with a protective order that bars him from contacting Megan.
A few weeks ago, Tory was arrested for violating the protective order but was released on bail. The trial starts on 14 September 2022 and if found guilty, Tory could face up to 22 years and eight months in prison.
