TSR STAFF: Tanya P.! @tanyaxpayne ______________________ #Roommates, it looks like #MeganTheeStallion felt like she had some explaining to do after her mugshot from 2015 resurfaced. Meg hopped on live to explain a situation between her and an ex-boyfriend she had when she was 19. ___________________ Apparently, Megan was at #SXSW, and found out that same day that her manssss cheated on her AND fathered a child with a woman he claimed to have slept with only one time. Apparently, when Megan found out they began arguing and the dispute turned violent. _________________ She explains during the live, that the argument spilled into the street and people who were around called the cops. Unfortunately for her, when she began to swing at him, cops stopped her in her tracks and had more than enough evidence to lock her up! To add insult to injury, her former boo admitted that she— read more at theshaderoom.com
Megan took to her social media channels to address the situation head on and explain it herself. She told her “Hotties” what went down on the day she got cuffed and threw in the back of a police car.
“I saw my ugly a** mugshot,” Megan said while laughing on IG Live. “So, I was maybe 19 or 20. I was in college and I had a real beautiful, toxic relationship. It was fun, but it was bad. I was at SXSW and my boyfriend at the time — I had just found out that this ni**a had a baby at the da*n concert.”
Being from Houston, Megan being at South by Southwest in Austin is not hard to believe at all – especially for someone that more than likely was still aspiring to break out in the way that she has. South by Southwest is a music festival that takes place yearly that draws both national and independent music acts from all around the world. It also boasts a concurrent technology conference and film festival, and is a big deal – a lot of police would definitely have been around.
The “Hot Girl Summer” rapper added, “It was toxic. It was fun at the time, but it was very toxic. But I was young and I thought that toxic sh*t was cute, but it’s not… I was really trying to keep the peace, keep it player, because we were in a public environment.”
So what set them off? How her six-foot-nine ex shared the news with her initially – by showing her who he was texting on his phone at the time. From there, everything escalated, with Megan trying to walk away. However, her ex was getting physical and was “pushing and pulling” her because he didn’t want her to leave.
After that, the man took her phone, smashed it and continued to stomp on it, and Megan lost it – but her timing was off, as the police showed up right as she was about to really beat him down!
“When I was ready to give it to him, the motherf**king police pull up when I’m punching… now the police are here and I look like the aggressor,” Megan explained. “[He] had it coming, it just so happened when I was ready to give it to him the motherf**king police pull up when I’m punching.” From there, it became a who-hit-who. Though Megan didn’t want to squeal, her ex did – and the cops took her to jail instead.
A lesson learned and one that Megan’s current success would probably prevent from ever happening again! Don’t ever mess with a “B.I.T.C.H.” — as her current single suggests.
