In happier news, Megan celebrated her one-year anniversary with boyfriend Pardi Fontaine in October.

Alongside a fun Instagram post of snaps of the couple, Megan wrote: ...1 year of fun with you....

Pardi reciprocated by posting a minute and a half long video full of sweet moments from their relationship.

Megan endured a turbulent 2020 as she accused rapper Tory Lanez of shooting her in both feet last July.

Tory was accused of shooting at Megan after she left a SUV during a fight in the Hollywood Hills on July 12, according to a release.


Megan was left with two wounds in her feet and hit out at the Canadian recording artist on social media at the time.

Sharing photos of her injuries, she wrote: ...Bch you shot me AND MY STORY NOT CHANGING AND BCH YOU GOING TO JAIL.”

He faces two felony charges - assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle.

Tory pleaded not guilty through his attorney back in November for the charges.

He faces up to 22 years in prison if found guilty.

GettyMegan didn't say what the personal issue is but days ago she was left devastated at the murder of her friend Young Dolph which rocked the hip hop world '/caption '
