Megan Thee Stallion claims Tory Lanez offered her $1 million after he allegedly shot her.
The 27-year-old rapper claims she was offered the money in exchange for her silence, following the alleged shooting in July 2020.
During an emotional interview on 'CBS Mornings', Megan said: "He said, ‘I’m so sorry. Please don’t tell nobody. I’ll give y’all $1 million if y’all don’t say nothing.' And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about? Why are you offering me money right now? Help me. And if you’re sorry, just help me.'"
Megan also feared that the police would open fire if they arrived on the scene and saw a "hot gun".
The rap star explained how the death of George Floyd, in May 2020, influenced her thinking at the time.
She shared: "I was like, ‘Oh my God, we’re all about to die.’ The George Floyd incident had just happened. The police are definitely very much shoot first, ask questions after."
Megan initially told police officers that she stepped on glass. But the rapper eventually confessed to being shot when she underwent surgery on her foot.
Megan - whose real name is Megan Pete - recalled: "I was lying to protect all of us. Sometimes I wish I really would’ve never said that."
Tory, 29, is facing two felony charges of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.
However, the rap star - whose real name is Daystar Peterson - previously denied the allegations, claiming in the song 'Money Over Fallout' that he'd been framed for the crime.
He said: "Megan people tryna frame me for a shooting."
The rap star's trial is set to begin on September 14.
