Megan Thee Stallion Details Tory Lanez Shooting In Gayle King Interview

Megan Thee Stallion’s first televised interview about the July 2020 incident in which Tory Lanez allegedly shot her aired on CBS on Monday. The rapper sat down with Gayle King to talk about it.

“I get out of the car and it’s like everything happens so fast,” Megan says during a clip from the interview. “And all I hear is this man screaming. And he said, ‘Dance, bitch.’ And he started shooting. And I’m just like, ‘Oh, my God.’ Like, he shot a couple of times. And I — I was so scared.”

“He is standin’ up over the window shooting,” Megan continued. “And I didn’t even want to move. I didn’t want to move too quick. Like, ’cause I’m like, ‘Oh, my God. If I take the wrong step, I don’t know if he’s gonna shoot something that’s, like, super important. I don’t know if he could shoot me and kill me.'”

Megan also said that Lanez offered her money if she would 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,'” the rapper said. “And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ Like, ‘Why are you offering me money right now?’ Help me. Like, and if you sorry, just help me!”

She also talked about her behavior in the months following the shooting. “I’m trying to be as nice as I can to everybody … new people, I probably won’t even hold a conversation longer than 30 minutes ’cause I feel like every time I’m talking, I’m, like, on the verge of tears and I don’t want to have to explain to strangers why I’m crying,” she said. “It’s too much. I feel crazy. I’m sad and I feel like I have to hold it in.”

Megan Thee Stallion has addressed the shooting a number of times since it happened on social media, and her recently-released single “Plan B” alludes to it. A court case is currently ongoing, and the next hearing in scheduled for September.
