Megan Thee Stallion has said she wants Tory Lanez “go to jail” for allegedly shooting her.
The 27-year-old “WAP” musician was shot in both feet in June 2020. She claims the shooter was 29-year-old rapper Lanez, who was a friend at the time.
Lanez – real name Daystar Peterson – was charged with assault. In November 2021, he entered a not-guilty plea.
Megan opened up about the incident in a new interview, which took place after an alleged argument broke out between Lanez and her former friend Kelsey Harris Rolling Stone.
Of her past friendship with Lanez, she said: “I thought we had a real connection. i thought he knew me And I never thought he would have shot me at all.”
Megan continued, “I never touched that man. I never did anything to him. There was an argument. People fight every day. Friends fight every day.”
In an April interview with CBS’ Gayle King, Megan claimed that Lanez immediately afterwards apologized for his alleged actions and asked her to keep quiet, offering her and Harris “a million dollars.”
Megan said she initially told police she had kicked glass because she feared for her life.
“There were so many cops I was like, ‘We’re all going to die,'” she recalled. “The George Floyd incident had just happened, the police shoot very first, ask questions afterwards.”
Speak with Rolling Stone Regarding the rumors surrounding the incident that have since been circulating around the internet, the singer said: “In a way, I became the villain. And I don’t know if people don’t take it seriously because I seem strong.
“I wonder if it’s my looks. Is it because I’m not light enough? Am I not white enough? Am I not the form? The height? Because I’m not petite? Don’t I look like I’m worthy of being treated like a woman?”
Megan will face Lanez in court when the case goes to trial in September. She told the publication: “I want him to go to jail. i want him to go under the prison.”
The Independent has reached out to a Lanez representative for comment.
