American rapper, Curtis Jackson, popularly known as 50 Cent, has apologised to colleague, Megan Thee Stallion, for expressing disbelief about the nature of her relationship with rapper Tory Lanez, who shot her.
In December 2022, 50 Cent compared Megan to Jussie Smollet, the former Empire actor who lied about being physically attacked in a 2019 hate crime saying “I’m confused all this sh*t going around I don’t know what to think. LOL,” in a tweet.
However, in an interview with BigBoyTV on Wednesday, the rapper apologised.
“I’m gonna apologise to Megan Thee Stallion. I said some things, and it was because, on social media I posted things that — when she was with Gayle [King] — she said, ‘Were you intimate with Tory Lanez?’ And she said, ‘What?’ and it was like, ‘No.’ And I was like, ‘Ah, she lying.’-At that point I knew she was lying, it wouldn’t be no reason for them to be around each other. From that, it felt like she was lying, to me.” he said.
He added, “I should apologise to her, because when I heard the phone conversation(between Lanez and Meg’s former best friend Kelsey Harris). That made me feel like, ‘Oh, now I know what happened.’ I’m sure that was probably what swayed people in court too.”
Meanwhile, Lanez has been found guilty of assault with a semiautomatic firearm; carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle; and discharging a firearm with gross negligence.
