Megan Thee Stallion’s former stylist, E.J. King, took the stand Monday and testified about Megan and Kelsey Nicole’s behavior during Kylie Jenner‘s party, and spoke on Meg allegedly possessing weapons as well as him begging her to leave Jenner‘s house party.
King, whose real name is Eric Culbertson, provided crucial testimony during the Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion shooting trial in Los Angeles.

He was questioned by Tory’s attorney, George Mgdesyan, and allegedly testified that he, Meg and Kelsey never carried any handguns to protect themselves when security was not present, but did admit that he’s seen Meg carry tasers and mace to protect herself, according to the Twitter account Louder Than A Riot, which provided a thread rundown of King’s testimony.
King also reportedly testified that Kylie’s stepfather Corey Gamble attempted to get everyone to leave the party before Lanez arrived up around 8 or 9 p.m. King expressed that he did not like being the “last Black people in somebody’s house.”
The celebrity stylist also said that Meg, Kelsey and Kylie had all been drinking prior to Tory’s arrival. However, Meg and Kylie reportedly got excited after Tory showed up, and the three began to drink together.
“(That’s when) Meg’s energy shifted from fun Megan to irritated Megan,” King said.
King also testified that Meg “was past the faded point,” and “didn’t want to leave without Tory,” despite his efforts to get her to leave the party without him.

The stylist, who said he does not drink, told the court that he was “on alert” because Megan Thee Stallion was intoxicated and had made a “slight comment” to Kylie Jenner.
King revealed that Kelsey told Kylie, “you’re fun, you’re a vibe,” to which Megan reportedly added “I’m really glad because I thought you were a lame.”
