Megan Thee Stallion reveals what really happened during ‘heated’ Justin Timberlake exchange at VMAs 2023

Talk to the hand — or just with it.

Megan Thee Stallion shut down rumors that she and Justin Timberlake had a fiery exchange backstage at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards Tuesday night.

The “Thot S–t” rapper, 28, posted a TikTok video early Wednesday in which she smiled and danced beside the “Mirrors” singer, 42, while making hand gestures toward the camera.

“I just talk with my hands🤷🏽‍♀️ lol,” she captioned the clip, adding, “@justintimberlake love ya 💙.”

We’re told Megan and Timberlake filmed the video at a VMA afterparty at TAO Downtown in the Skybox private dining room and were both partying the night away until after 2 a.m.

Fans flooded social media to share their relief that there was no beef between the stars.
