Megan Thee Stallion, a rapper, has said that she “started falling into depression” after Tory Lanez shot her in the feet.
A jury found the 30-year-old Canadian man, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, guilty of the 2020 killing in December.
Megan said she felt embarrassed when her story of what happened was questioned on social media and her “trauma was treated like a running joke.”
The winner of a Grammy Award said that being found guilty was “more than a vindication.”
She also said, “It was a win for every woman who has ever been put down, ignored, or blamed for a violent crime that was done to her.”

Megan Wrote About Conspiracy Theories
The 28-year-old woman said in court that she was shot on July 12, 2020, after leaving a pool party in the Hollywood Hills.
She told the jury that Lanez, who was nominated for a Grammy, had told her to “dance” before starting the fire after they had argued about how good his music was.
The musician, whose real name is Megan Pete, wrote about “conspiracy theories” and “false narratives” that spread on social media before the trial in a piece for Elle.
“Even some of my music industry peers piled on with memes, jokes, and sneak disses, and they completely ignored the fact that I could have lost my life,” she said.
“These people tried to defend my attacker’s actions instead of condemning any kind of violence against a woman.”
People thought she was better because she was still singing and posting on social media, but she said she was “completely drained.”
She said, “The truth is that I started to feel down.” “I didn’t feel like making songs. I was feeling so bad that I didn’t even know what to rap about.”
“I started to wonder if anyone still cared. I’d be backstage or in my room crying my eyes out, and then I’d have to pull myself together and be Megan Thee Stallion.
She said that she knew Lanez would be found guilty and that “the truth and clear facts would win.”
Lanez hasn’t been given a punishment yet. ABC News said that his lawyers asked for a new hearing earlier this week.
