Megan Thee Stallion is opening up about her feelings following the robbery of her Los Angeles home!
Like most careers, being a celebrity comes with its highs and lows. From being trolled to dealing with the paparazzi, A-listers struggled to live an everyday life under the public’s ever-watching gaze.
Sometimes they can be victims of greedy hands aiming to take a piece of their wealth. Although these villains succeeded in the case of the “WAP” singer, the hip-hop sensation continues to stand tall.
Megan Thee Stallion Addresses Home Invasion With Strong Message
On October 14, after news broke that her Los Angeles home had been robbed, the 27-year-old addressed the break-in on Twitter. Putting her brave face on, the “Body” singer noted that she valued safety over the stolen items.
“Material things can be replaced, but I’m glad everyone is safe 💙 🙏🏾,” the Texas native wrote on Friday night. This simple yet powerful message showed the rapper’s positive nature, as few people can find the rainbow in bad situations.
Nonetheless, fans were worried about the Glamor Woman of the Year honoree. Her loyal supporters showed their love by flooding the post with over 40,000 likes, 2,500 retweets, and numerous comments.
Some wondered how the thieves invaded her home, while others hoped the showstoppers’ trophies were safe. A few people joked about searching for the invaders, but most were happy the goddess was safe.
Unfortunately, a few social media users were not as empathic. These trolls accused Megan of flaunting her wealth because her statement “material things can be replaced” only applied to the rich.
Wealthy or not, the three-time Grammy winner lost a substantial amount, according to TMZ. The news outlet explained that two men had ransacked the “Cognac Queen” rapper’s Los Angeles home. The authorities reported that the thieves, dressed in hoodies and gloves, accessed the chart-topper’s property by smashing the glass door at the back.
Once inside, the men wasted no time violating Megan’s bedroom. The robbers stripped the Texas native of an estimated worth of $300-$400K in jewelry, cash, electronics, and other valuables. Fortunately, the AMA winner was not in Los Angeles at the time of the incident.
The good news ends there, as authorities have not made any arrests. However, law enforcers assured the outlet that they were gathering the necessary evidence to solve the case.
Officers have been instructed to obtain more details of the crime from neighbors as their surveillance cameras may have captured the criminals. Hopefully, this would help speed up the case and bring these greedy villains to justice.
As for how Megan escaped this devastating ordeal, the “Ungrateful” artist had been preparing to host the “Saturday Night Live” show. Rehearsing for the big day kept the 27-year-old away from town and safe from harm.
The BET Award Winner Created A Mental Health Resources Website
Last month, The Blast shared that Megan gave back to the community by launching a website filled with numerous mental health-related resources. The best part — these materials were free.
The 27-year-old has been vocal about her struggles with mental health in the past, including her experiences with therapy. This part of her life influenced the Texas native’s decision to help others in similar situations with the right tools.
The “Captain Hook” artist’s website came with various categories for resources, including free therapy organizations, mental health hotlines, community resources for the LGBTQIA+ community, and more.
In 2021, Megan opened up about how crucial mental health was to her in an emotional conversation with Taraji P. Hensen on her Facebook Live show, “Peace Of Mind With Taraji.”
The BMI Award winner explained that after losing both of her parents, she fell into a dark hole with no clues on how to escape. Finally, the entertainer found her spark again after getting professional help. According to the Texas Southern University alum, Black women found it difficult to get therapy because of the stigma associated with mental health. In Megan’s words:
“Black women, we have always had to put a mask on like everything’s okay. We are usually who you lean on. We are usually everybody’s therapist.”
To break this toxic trend, the Hip-hop superstar’s new mental health website came with several resources for the Black community, like the Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective.
