Megan Thee Stallion’s Final Essay On Tory Lanez For Elle Magazine

April 20, 2023 | By Kali Girl

Megan Pete, also known as the fierce “Savage” rapper, shared her journey of healing and triumph with Elle Magazine.

In an essay published on Tuesday, she revealed the painful aftermath of being shot in the feet by fellow rapper Tory Lanez in July of 2020.

Megan recounted the experience of being betrayed by someone she believed was a friend, and how she managed to not only survive the trauma, but she also overcame, the “public humiliation of having my name and reputation dragged through the mud by that individual for the entire world to see.”

“As I reflect on the past three years, I view myself as a survivor, because I have truly survived the unimaginable,” Pete penned.

“It never crossed my mind that people wouldn’t believe me,” she wrote, adding that she nonetheless “knew the truth and the indisputable facts would prevail.”

In the summer of 2020, Pete accused Lanez of shooting her after they exited a vehicle following an argument.

Lanez was subsequently with three counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, as well as carrying a loaded and unregistered firearm in a vehicle, and discharge of a firearm with gross negligence, according to prosecutors.

The guilty verdict was more than just vindication for her, she wrote this week – “it was a victory for every woman who has ever been shamed, dismissed, and blamed for a violent crime committed against them.” 

“My heart hurts for all the women around the world who are suffering in silence, especially if you’re a Black woman who doesn’t appear as if she needs help.”
