More explosive details are unfolding about Megan Thee Stallion’s shooting incident involving Tory Lanez.
The Houston rapper’s hairstylist and friend Jonathan Wright recently confirmed Megan’s bombshell claim that Lanez offered her a whopping lump sum of cash to keep quiet about the alleged shooting.
During an interview with the Beyond The Chair podcast on April 29, Wright, who has been styling the Grammy-award-winner for years, claimed that Lanez contacted him directly after the shooting.
“The n**** DM’ed me! I’m like, ‘Yo, you went the wrong way!’”
Wright said he was furious after learning about the incident, telling the show’s hosts that he “wanted to go beat” Tory up.
“I wanted to go beat Tory ass and it’s still — oh, if he run up, it’s done up,” he added.
During her extended interview with Gayle King on CBS Mornings, the “Hot Girl Summer ” hitmaker became overwhelmed with emotion as she recalled the moments leading up to the alleged shooting. After partying all night at Kylie Jenner’s house in the Hollywood Hills, the Houston rapper said that she left with Tory, her close friend Kelsey Harris a.k.a. Kelsey Nicole, and two other unidentified subjects, shortly before Lanez began feuding with someone in the backseat.
“I didn’t want to see anybody die. So, I just said, “I stepped on glass.” So when I see people trying to use that against me, like trying to act like I’m lying, “Oh, she stepped on glass. She never got shot,” I’m the one who said I stepped on glass. I was lying to protect all of us. And sometimes I wish I really would have never said that.”
Meg and Tory’s trial will officially begin on Sept. 14. If convicted, Lanez could face up to 22 years and eight months in prison.
