The popular American rapper, Megan Thee Stallion who recently appeared on the MCU show She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, was hanging out with friends Kylie Jenner and rapper Tory Lanez after which the fun night turned upside down for her. Both rappers were involved in an incident that led to gunshots going off and allegedly hurting Megan Thee Stallion.
While it was questioned whether Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez were in an intimate relationship, she herself had denied any and all claims suggesting so. However, now as the trial moves forward and new revelations are being made public, the prosecutor in the case told the jury that the two rappers were, in fact, involved in a sexual relationship.
Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez’s Intimate Relationship
The trial for the shooting case began today (December 12), with the opening statements already causing a stir in the case, as well as on the Internet. A prosecutor confirmed to the jury that Megan Thee Stallion was in an intimate relationship with Lanez at some point.
However, before the trial began, Megan had denied to CBS’ Gayle King back in April, about being involved with Lanez in that sort of way. Responding to King, Megan stated, “Like sexual? Um,I didn’t have a sexual relationship with Tory.” This doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
The conflict that led to the alleged shooting, supposedly happened because Lanez was in an intimate relationship with Megan and one of her friends, Kelsey Harris. As stated before, Megan denied such claims, but now prosecutors say that she will be testifying about having intimate relationships with the Canadian rapper.
Some Insights into the Trial
The trial began today in Los Angeles but neither of the two rappers showed up for the opening statements. Lanez faces up to or more than twenty years in prison if found guilty. He is charged with a felony count of assault, using a firearm for personal use, and carrying an unregistered firearm in the vehicle, among others, although, he has pleaded not guilty to any of the charges. Megan is said to give her testimony tomorrow.
Los Angeles County’s deputy district attorney, Alexander Bott, stated during the trial that Megan was shot by Lanez. He also added that Harris will testify that she saw Lanez shooting her friend as she was present both during and after the incident.
Prosecutors came quite prepared as they also showed the jury text messages between Harris and Megan’s bodyguard after five minutes of the alleged shooting. The messages read, “Help,” “Tory Shot Meg,” and “911.”
As stated by Los Angeles Times, Bott played a voicemail from Lanez to Megan where he apologized for the incident, stating that he was drunk and “sh*t should have never happened and I can’t change what I did.”
Megan is set on her decision, stating that Lanez belongs “Under the jail.” She also added that she still has bullet fragments from her surgery to prove her case and accused the Canadian rapper of trying to bribe her with a million dollars. Since it was just day one of the trial, it would be unfair to reach any conclusions just yet. Fans will have to wait and see as the trial is said to go on for a long time.
