Megan Thee Stallion says she "survived the unimaginable" after Tory Lanez shooting

In a statement, rapper Megan Thee Stallion has said she “survived the unimaginable” after the Tory Lanez shooting incident.

Following the shooting, which took place in 2020, Megan engaged in a bitter online feud with her former friend, who was finally found guilty four months ago. Over the last three years, the aftermath of the incident has been all-consuming for the rapper, but now, she’s ready to move on from the harrowing attack.

“I don’t want to call myself a victim,” Megan began her statement, which was published in Elle. “As I reflect on the past three years, I view myself as a survivor, because I have truly survived the unimaginable. Not only did I survive being shot by someone I trusted and considered a close friend, but I overcame the public humiliation of having my name and reputation dragged through the mud by that individual for the entire world to see.”

She added: “For years, my attacker tried to leverage social media to take away my power. Imagine how it feels to be called a liar every day?” Megan wrote. “Especially from a person who was once part of your inner circle.”

Megan continued: “My purpose is for these words to serve as the final time that I’ll address anything regarding this case in the press. I understand the public intrigue, but for the sake of my mental health, I don’t plan to keep reliving the most traumatic experience of my life over and over again. I’m choosing to change the narrative because I’m more than just my trauma.”
