‘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 said she also feared 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.’

Charges: Lanez is facing two felony charges of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. He was pictured in Miami last year
