Megan Thee Stallion Shot, John Legend on Cheating, Kevin Connolly, Jake Paul, Demi Moore, Tom Hiddleston and More Quickies
Rapper Megan Thee Stallion took to Instagram to clear up rumors regarding reports that she was in the car when Tory Lanez was arrested on Sunday (June 12, 2020) for carrying a concealed weapon.
She was shot in the foot, but it is not clear who she was shot by. TMZ’s law enforcement sources say she told the cops that night she had cut her foot on glass, and that’s why officers took her to the hospital for treatment.
Below is her Instagram post:
“I was never arrested. This whole experience was an eye-opener and a blessing in disguise. I hate that it took this experience for me to learn how to protect my energy.”
“The narrative that is being reported about Sunday’s morning events are inaccurate and I’d like to set the record straight. On Sunday morning, I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me. I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets. I’m incredibly grateful to be alive and that I’m expected to make a full recovery, but it was important for me to clarify the details about this traumatic night. I’m currently focused on my recovery, so I can return back to my life and back to making music as soon as possible.”

John Legend Owns Up to Cheating Before Meeting Chrissy Teigen
During an appearance on Armchair Expert With Dax Shepard, John Legend and host Shepard both shared stories about how they cheated on their exes — and neither one is proud of the fact.
“I think what happened for me, personally, you go through a lot of your life in your teens — and I was like the ‘two years younger kid than everybody’ in high school and college, and so I just didn’t get a lot of girls when I was younger,” Legend said. “When I started to get that attention, I loved it. I just ate it up.”
Legend went on to say that he would tell himself that it wasn’t “technically” cheating because he kept his relationship status blurry. Because there was no official statement on the situation, he thought he could do whatever he wanted.
“I escaped ‘technically cheating’ by keeping my relationship ill-defined. But it was really cheating,” Legend explained. “I definitely was dishonest and selfish and just enjoyed this new attention I was getting. It was happening before I was famous but when I was kind of on my way.”
