In an interview with GQ, she recalled the incident in detail, stating that she had just left a pool party in the Hollywood Hills. She hopped in an SUV with Tory Lanez and two others, still in her bathing suit from the party, headed home.
Megan The Stallion says that she often tells herself to “always trust your first mind” and “listen to your gut.” But on that night she went against her better judgment by getting in the car, despite the first instinct that told her to find another way home. Megan Thee Stallion said everyone in the car asked her to stay, so she did because it was late and her phone died, leaving her with no other way to find a way home. Although she didn’t get specific about what or who started the argument, she says that there was a disagreement which led her to eventually leave the vehicle. Tory Lanez then allegedly shot at her feet as she walked away.

“I never put my hands on nobody. I barely even said anything to the man who shot me when I was walking away. We were literally like five minutes away from the house.”
Megan says that after the shots rang, Tory Lanez allegedly asked her and her friend to remain quiet and even offered her money. Megan Thee Stallion says,
“[At this point] I’m really scared, because this is like right in the middle of all the protesting. Police are just killing everybody for no reason, and I’m thinking, ‘I can’t believe you even think I want to take some money. Like, you just shot me.’ ”
Megan also spoke on going through this experience after her mother, Holly Thomas, died from a brain tumor in March of 2019.
“I have to be tough through all this? All the time? It was like, who really checks on us or who protected us? You just go your whole life with that mentality. And then when something actually happens to you, when you properly should have protected yourself, your first instinct was not to protect yourself, it was protecting other people.… So it was like, ‘What do I do? What do I say?’ Like, ‘Is anybody going to believe what I’m saying?’ I was like, ‘I have to take control of this,’ I’m still Megan Thee Stallion.”

Megan, who often receives criticism for her outfits and dance moves added:
“I feel like a lot of men just get scared when they see women teaching other women to own sex for themselves. Sex is something that it should be good on both ends, but a lot of times it feels like it’s something that men use as a weapon or like a threat. I feel like men think that they own sex, and I feel like it scares them when women own sex.”
