Model Takes Gunshot Wound at Chris Brown’s Pre-VMA Party Like a Champ

We’re all well aware that history has a tendency to repeat itself, and hip-hop producer  was reminded of that this weekend at Chris Brown‘s Pre-VMA party in West Hollywood. Suge has been a dubious presence in music for decades, most famously as the CEO of Death Row Records, which boasted artists like Snoop Dogg, N.W.A and Tupac. His entire career in music has been tinged with violence — people have even theorized that he was responsible for the 1997 death of rapper The Notorious B.I.G., as revenge for the killing of Tupac a few months before. 

With Suge’s past in mind, it comes as little surprise that he would find himself embroiled in another dangerous situation 17 years later. This weekend, the producer was attending Chris Brown’s fête at 1Oak when a gunman started shooting at the party. Now, there are conflicting reports saying the bullets were meant for Suge, and others saying Chris was the target, but either way, the producer caught six of the slugs, and the seventh went right into the booty of one model attending the affair. 

Megan Hawkins sustained injuries in her derrière region, having caught a bullet right in the butt. The 19-year-old model posted an image from her hospital room to Instagram, and she’s fine — she went into surgery on Sunday and is in recovery. A post (now deleted) from her Instagram profile pictured her standing with the help of a walker. Megan doesn’t look at all shaken from the incident, since she’s smiling in each of the photos. “My ass took a 9mm and I’m keeping it as a souvenir,” she quipped over social media. Not a bad attitude to have after a terrifying, near-death experience. 

We think Megan will be staying far away from Chris’ parties from now on, though.
