Megan Thee Stallion is talking about the alleged 2020 shooting with Tory Lanez in his first television interview.
As you probably know, the 27-year-old rapper publicly claimed that Lanez shot her in the foot while she was in a van after a party in Kylie Jennerat the Hollywood Hills home in July 2020. The 29-year-old was arrested at the time of the shooting and charged with carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle. He was later charged in October 2020 with felony assault with a semi-automatic firearm, personal use of a firearm, and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. Lanez has since pleaded not guilty.
More recently, he was arrested again for violating court orders to hire her and discussing anything about the case with third parties. According Peoplethe artist allegedly addressed Megan on social media and shared DNA evidence through a third party Twitter Username.

And while Megan has slowly addressed the altercation on social media and in songs, the entire situation has never been fully explained. But now, it seems that she is ready to fully discuss what happened that fateful day on camera in her own words.
In a preview of an upcoming interview with King Gayle for CBS morningsMegan tearfully recalled the events leading up to the incident, stating that it all started with an “argument”:
“It was an argument because I was ready to go and everyone else wasn’t ready to go. But that’s, like, normal friend stuff. Like, we worry about silly things all the time. But I never lay hands on anyone. I never raised my voice too loud. Like, this was one of those times where he was, like, he shouldn’t have gone so crazy.”
When she got out of the car at one point, that’s when things escalated:
“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. And I’m like, ‘Oh my God.’”
She claimed that he fired the gun “a couple of times”, adding:
“And I was so scared.”
Gayle then asked the grammys winner to clarify Tory’s position during the alleged incident, to which Megan said:
He’s standing by the window shooting. And he didn’t even want to move me. He didn’t want to move too fast.”
becoming emotional, WAP artist continued:
“Because I’m like, ‘My God, if I take the wrong step, I don’t know if I could shoot myself at something that’s very important, I don’t know if I could shoot myself and kill myself.’ I was very scared because I had never been shot before.”
