Megan Thee Stallion Donates Over $8,000 To Help Cover Late Fan's Funeral Costs
Megan Thee Stallion is showing her support to the family of a fan who passed away unexpectedly last week.
The “Savage” artist, 26, donated over $8,000 to a GoFundMe account to help cover the funeral costs for a late fan, Shaniah Leigh Scales.
A friend of Scales reached out to Megan on Twitter asking for help with reaching their $16,000 goal.
“Meg we lost a hottie our best friend passed away unexpectedly,” @selenachichis tweeted. “They absolutely loved you, listening to ur songs was something we did every time we were together.”
The musician responded on Tuesday, June 15, asking “How much do y’all need?”
Less than an hour later, the Grammy winner posted a screenshot of her donation to the fundraiser page, revealing her $8,155 donation.

The fan reached back out to Megan to express her gratitude.
“I am crying so hard. I will ride for you until the day I die. I know our friend is up in heaven smiling so hard right now. I can’t believe this. Thank you so much for helping us and their family,” Scale’s friend wrote before making her account private.
This isn’t the first time we have seen the rapper being charitable. In March, she teamed up with Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee and the National Association of Christian Churches to help her hometown of Houston bounce back after the destruction of Winter Storm Uri.
“Seeing the devastation and hearing the heartbreaking stories that have surfaced, I knew I had to do something to help my hometown,” she said in a statement. “I am so happy that Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, and the NACC and I aligned on the goal of repairing the homes of the elderly and uninsured single moms who are the most vulnerable and often displaced by these kinds of devastating events.”
Earlier this year, the “Captain Hook” rapper generously gifted a Houston nurse who had been working on the front lines during the pandemic $50,000 to help her pay off student loans.
Megan called the nurse’s work with COVID-19 patients “super inspiring.”
