On Tuesday, Megan Thee Stallion took the stand to testify in the Tory Lanez trial. She said “I’m having a really difficult time sitting up here telling my story and having to sit across [from] people who have made up lies about me and having to [sit] across from Tory.” When asked about the shooting, Megan said, “I heard the gunshot. I don’t know how many, but feels like it went on forever. I’ve never been shot at before in my life. As soon as he started shooting, I put my head down.” Megan said she lowered her head because “I was scared, and I didn’t move. He said, ‘Dance b**ch,’ and I turned to him and saw him shoot.” After the police arrived, Meg added she was put in handcuffs. She continued, “Nobody cared I was bleeding. Felt like I don’t matter. Nobody cares what is happening to me right now.”
Talking about what has happened since the shooting, Megan said, “Every man in a position of power in the music industry has taken (Tory’s) side. Not a day goes by without being called a liar. This whole thing is about who I was having sex with, not who shot me, and I don’t know why.” Megan then added, “I don’t want to live. I wish he had just shot and killed me if I had to go through this torture.”
When the questioning turned to Meg’s former friend Kelsey, Meg said things ended with her when she “met with Tory after he shot me… They went and turned the story around,” adding that there’s no doubt it was Tory who shot her, not Kelsey as the defense has insinuated.
Upon cross-examination, the defense attorney asked Megan if she lied about her previous relationship with Lanez to the police and in her interview with Gayle King. Meg said, “yes.”Megan also said she never told police about her claim that Lanez offered her $1 million to keep the shooting secret.
