‘So, I get out the car and it’s like, everything happens so fast,’ Stallion told CBS host Gayle King in an emotional interview on Monday. ‘And all I hear is this man screaming. And he started shooting. I’m just like, “Oh my God.” He shot a couple of times.’

Lanez pleaded not guilty to the felony assault charge as well as felony possession of a loaded, unregistered firearm in November 2020. 

He is next due to appear in court on September 14.

Stallion continued: ‘All I hear is this man screaming and he said, “Dance b****!'” the rapper explained. ‘And he started shooting and I’m just like, oh my God.’

‘I didn’t even want to move, I didn’t want to move too quick,’ Stallion added while tearing up and getting emotional.

‘Cause I’m like, oh, my God. If I take the wrong step, I don’t know if he’s going to shoot something that’s, like, super important. I don’t know if he could shoot me and kill me.’

‘I was really scared ’cause I had never been shot at before,’ she said. 

The pair were rumored to have been dating at the time, but Stallion claimed in her op-ed for the New York Times that they were just friends.
