When Megan Thee Stallion came forward and spoke out about the fateful night Tory Lanez screamed at her and shot her in the foot, she was met with criticism and skepticism.
What was supposed to be a harmless get-together or house party at the home of beauty mogul and reality star Kylie Jenner in 2020 turned into a nightmare for the “Body” rapper.
Megan Thee Stallion initially told police that she had injured her feet after stepping on broken glass, but she eventually confessed: Lanez had shot her in the foot.
She also stated that she “could not walk” after the shooting and had to have surgery to remove the bullet fragments from her foot—or at least the majority of them.
Lanez was found guilty of three felony counts in connection with the shooting over two years later, and Megan Thee Stallion can rest a little easier now that her shooter is behind bars.
Adele mentioned Megan Thee Stallion during her Las Vegas show after learning of Lanez’s conviction.
Following a performance of one of her hits, “Water Under the Bridge,” the Grammy winner stated:
“Well today, tonight, I would like to wish Meg the Stallion a very, very merry, merry Christmas!”
The British singer continued:
“Girl, get your peace. Do whatever you want now, baby! I love ya!”
Janelle Monae also expressed her support for the rapper, tweeting:
“Sending the (((biggest hug))) (((love))) & (((peace))) to Megan Pete.”
Tinashe wrote on Twitter:
“Sending love and healing to [Megan Thee Stallion] #ProtectBlackWomen.”
Baby Tate wrote:
“I can’t imagine the nightmare that this past two years has been for you, and I know that this verdict won’t erase that but I pray it helps you on your journey to finding peace and healing! We love you.”
According to reports, other artists such as Zara Larsson, Finneas, and Cardi B all supported the rapper.
The support comes months, if not years, after several artists questioned her story and even mocked the violence Megan Thee Stallion experienced.
A Drake song even featured the lyrics:
“This bitch lie about getting shot but she still a stallion.”
According to Vox, many believe the Canadian rapper was referring to Megan Thee Stallion. He has never responded to the rumors about the lyrics.
