Megan Thee Stallion Fights Back Tears at Concert After AI-Generated Sex Tape Allegedly Circulates Online

Megan Thee Stallion got emotional during a recent stop on her Hot Girl Summer Tour after an AI sex tape of her allegedly went live.

Megan Thee Stallion got emotional during a recent stop in Tampa, Florida, for her Hot Girl Summer Tour. In videos shared online by her fans, the 29-year-old rapper gets choked up as she readies to launch into her hit song, "Cobra," while onstage at the Amalie Arena in Tampa on Saturday.

In a video shared to X (formerly Twitter), Megan can be seen putting her head down and taking a deep breath to collect herself before the song begins. But as the backing track of "Cobra" begins, Megan visibly struggles to perform the lyrics and has to cut herself off as she fans her face with her hand and covers her eyes to stop herself from crying.

As the GRAMMY winner works to gather herself, her fans rally around to cheer her on as loud as possible. The video itself features a message to the rapper, which reads, "We love you queen," which was echoed by fans on X who got the hashtag  #WeLoveYouMegan trending over the weekend.

While the rapper hasn't spoken out about what prompted the emotional moment, it comes after rumors that an AI-generated sex tape allegedly featuring Megan's likeness has been circulating online.

The "Hiss" rapper seemingly addressed the "fake a**" video earlier on Saturday, before her concert. "It's really sick how y'all go out of the way to hurt me when you see me winning," Megan wrote on X. "Y'all going too far, Fake a** s**t. Just know today was your last day playing with me and I mean it."

While Megan has yet to address the brief moment onstage, she took to Instagram to thank her fans for their support at Saturday's show.

"TAMPA HOTTIES 🥹🥹🥹🫶🏽🫶🏽🫶🏽 Thank you i love yall! Thee energy was everything! Love you hotties 💙," she captioned a video montage posted on Instagram Sunday.

Reports of an AI-generated sex tape aside, Megan has a lot to look forward to in her future. The rapper's self-titled third studio album is slated to drop on June 28, and she's been previewing different looks for the upcoming release on social media.

Megan announced the album release in a tweet alongside the first album cover earlier this month. "SURPRISE HOTTIESSSS!!!! My New Album 'MEGAN'' will be coming out JUNE 28 PRE-SAVE NOW!," she wrote.

On Sunday, she revealed another cover, with the cheeky message to "Stay tuned in if you’re a real hottie."

Back in April, Megan graced the cover of Women's Health's May/June issue, in which she opened up to the outlet about how her "rebirth" inspired her upcoming album.

"A lot of people didn't treat me like I was human for a long time," Megan told Women's Health of the public's reaction to her testifying against former friend Tory Lanez during his felony assault trial in December 2022. After a week-long trial, the Canadian musician was convicted on three counts at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center in Los Angeles. On Aug. 8, three years after Megan accused Lanez of shooting her in the feet, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison

"I feel like everybody was always used to me being the fun and happy party girl. I watched people build me up, tear me down, and be confused about their expectations of me. As a Black woman, as a darker Black woman, I also feel like people expect me to take the punches, take the beating, take the lashings, and handle it with grace. But I'm human," she shared.

The "Savage" rapper confessed that she was suffering in silence, keeping up a facade for the public.

"Before I went onstage, I would be crying half the time because I didn't want to [perform], but I also didn't want to upset my fans," she recalled. "I didn't want to get [out] from under the covers. I stayed in my room. I would not turn the lights on. I had blackout curtains. I didn't want to see the sun. I knew I wasn't myself. It took me a while to acknowledge that I was depressed. But once I started talking to a therapist, I was able to be truthful with myself."

Megan has been a vocal advocate for utilizing mental health resources. In 2022, the rapper announced the launch of the Pete and Thomas Foundation. Named after her parents, Holly Thomas and Joseph Pete Jr., who died in 2019 and 2011, respectively, the non-profit organization's website says its mission is to "catalyze resources to effect meaningful and positive change in the lives of women and children, senior citizens, and underserved communities in Houston, Texas, and across the globe."

Several months later, Megan launched a website called "Bad B**ches Have Bad Days Too," which provides users with links to free therapy organizations, suicide and substance abuse helplines, among other resources.

The site title is taken from a chorus line of the lyrics from the rapper's single, "Anxiety." The song, off her album, Traumazine, details the workings of Megan's mind -- from her insecurities, anxieties and grief. 

As a rapper that has always shown her vulnerability and strength in songs like "Cobra" and "Anxiety," Megan told Women's Health that she's growing into her ability to make music "that is still true to myself but also true to my message." 

She added: "I'm proud to still be here. I didn't quit. I want to see myself grow and be better than I am right now. And I will. I know I will."

"I feel like I'm in such a fresh space, like everything about me is new," Megan told ET last September. "My attitude, my vibe. I feel like I'm starting a new chapter in my life. I think I've just gone through so much and I'm at a point where I don't care about a lot of stuff. I'm just so comfortable with myself. I'm like, 'OK, at this point, girl, what's the worst thing that can happen?' I'm just into taking risks right now."

"I always like to think of myself as a confident person, I always [act] that I didn't care about much, I was nonchalant, but it took me to go through things where so many people were talking about me constantly, to where I had to realize, 'OK, maybe you're not as nonchalant and carefree as you thought you were,'" she confessed. "So, I had to take a step back [and] reevaluate myself. I had to get in a comfortable position with myself, and now I genuinely can say that I'm in love with Megan. I'm in love with Megan Thee Stallion."
