American rapper Megan Thee Stallion gave an emotional insight into the alleged 2020 shooting by ex-boyfriend and singer Tory Lanez that left her nursing a bullet wound to the foot.
In a recently released clip ahead of the full interview scheduled for Monday, April 25 on ‘CBS Mornings’, the Grammy-award winner broke down in tears as she recalled when Lanez yelled the words “Dance bitch” before firing at her.
At the beginning of the video, she detailed that the shooting occurred because she wanted to leave a party before the friends she was with were ready. This she said developed into an argument and led to Lanez retaliating with a gun.
“So I get out of the car, and everything just happened so fast. All I hear this man screaming is, ‘dance, bitch,’ and he starts shooting, and I’m just like ‘oh my God’ like he shot a couple of times,” she said as she tried to hold back tears.
Tory Lanez whose real name is Daystar Peterson was charged in October 2020 for shooting Megan Pete o/c Megan Thee Stallion. The accused is expected to be in court for a hearing in June 2022 before the start of his trial in September 2022.
If convicted, Tory Lanez faces a maximum sentence of about 23 years.
