It’s been revealed Houston rapper Megan thee Stallion (real name Megan Pete) has an arrest record. Today (February 11, 2020), a mug shot of the 24-year-old was surfaced from arrests.org showing Megan was arrested on March 19, 2015 for “assault causes bodily injury family member” in Travis County, Texas.
Shortly after the mugshot surfaced, Megan, who had just attended a Coach runway presentation show in New York, went on Instagram Live to explain the incident. She explained she was arrested for physically attacking her boyfriend after she discovered a year into their relationship he had a baby with another woman. The news was revealed to her by her boyfriend while they were attending a South by Southwest concert in Austin.
She explained, “I was maybe 19 or 20 and I had a real beautiful toxic relationship. It was fun but it was bad. I was at South by Southwest and I found out at the concert my boyfriend had a baby. And the baby had been born and was one.”
When Megan attempted to leave, she alleged her boyfriend stopped her, took her phone and stomped it. The two continued to push and pull each other and according to Megan, the police pulled up when she was in the midst of landing a punch.
She added she spent two days in jail, which she described as “the worst two days of her life.” Unable to make a call outside of the city because of jail rules, she called her boyfriend, who picked her up. After which, Megan said she returned home with him.
As to why the arrest was listed as an attack on a family member, Megan said the description was inaccurate and emphasized the event didn’t involve her manager and mother, Holly Thomas, who died from a brain tumor in March of last year. “This time last year my momma had got sick so it’s super sensitive right now,” she noted.
Under Texas law, a family member may also include former spouses, siblings, domestic partners, roommates, and present/former boyfriends/girlfriends.
After she explained the mugshot, she took questions from followers and noted she she’s currently single and not dating anyone. “Do you know you can be hanging out with multiple niggas and not be fucking them?” she stated.
