Megan Thee Stallion Interview with Gayle King Turns Emotional

On Monday morning, April 25, rapper Megan Thee Stallion opened up about the alleged shooting involving rapper Tory Lanez in an emotional and heartfelt interview with CBS Mornings, Gayle King. Before releasing the full interview with Gayle King, CBS Morning released excerpts from the interview that showed the rapper talking about the moments leading up to the alleged shooting.

The rapper states, 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. We fuss about silly stuff all the time. But I never put my hands on anybody. I never raised my voice too loud. Like, this was one of the times where it was, like, it shouldn’t have got this crazy.” This interview marks the first time the rapper has spoken about the incident in January 2020.

Rapper Tory Lanez denied any allegations of ever shooting Megan and pleaded not guilty in July 2020. However, recently, Lanez was taken into custody by the Los Angeles Police Department for violating a judge’s orders prohibiting Lanez from harassing or contacting Megan Thee Stallion or speaking about the case with other people, including on social media. Lanez spent five hours in custody after the judge raised his bail from $250,000 to $350,000 but was eventually released.

In the interview, Megan gets visibly and audibly emotional as she recounts the incident stating, “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 b—-,’ and he started shooting. And I’m just like, ‘Oh, my god.’ Like, he shot a couple of times. And I was so scared. I didn’t want to move. I didn’t want to move too quickly,” the rapper says. “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.”

Lanez has been charged with one count of assault with a semiautomatic firearm that inflicted significant bodily injury and one count of carrying a loaded, concealed, and unregistered firearm, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney. If convicted, Lanez can face up to 22 years in prison. The case is expected to take place in September 2022.
