Megan Thee Stallion, real name Megan Pete, took to the stand in day two of the trial proceedings, once again publicly detailing the harrowing experience that saw her suffer injury to both feet. In a tearful testimony, she described the events leading up to the moment that Lanez allegedly pulled out a gun and shot toward her, ordering her to “dance,” then begged for her silence amid a $1 Million bribe.

In addition to her lasting injuries, the Traumazine rapper also detailed the fear and panic she experienced upon being shot, and the anxiety and depression she now experiences after facing an onslaught of backlash for publicly revealing that she was assaulted with a deadly weapon and naming her attacker.

“This has messed up my whole life,” she said on the stand via ABC News. “…I don’t even want to be on this earth no more.”
