Megan Thee Stallion reveals how her anxiety affects her relationship

Megan has been open about her experience with anxiety and seeing a therapist. She also recently shared how her anxiety affects her relationship with Fontaine.

“I appreciate him for loving on me even when I don’t feel like I love me,” Megan said in a new Rolling Stone interview. “I have a lot of anxiety, and I know I’m probably depressed on some level. I’ll be like, ‘Damn, you really sticking through it?’”

She also added, “‘I really want to be good for you because I’m trying to be good for myself.’ But I just … I don’t know. Right now, I really don’t know, because sometimes I don’t feel good about me. So I feel like it’s hard to be in a relationship when you are not loving on yourself right.”

Megan Thee Stallion says Pardison Fontaine makes her happy

Despite some bumps in the road, Megan is happy with Fontaine.

In June 2021, she told a Houston radio show on 97.9 The Box: “First of all, he does make me happy, but my happiness comes from myself because I’m a happy lady. But like I said in the last interview, I got good energy around me right now. Everybody that’s a part of my life, definitely makes me feel good, keeps me encouraged. I love where I’m at working and writing and with my music so that always puts me in a good mood whenever I figure out what I want to say in a beat. And yeah, Pardi does make me happy too.”

Additionally, she also shared on Taraji P. Henson’s Facebook Watch series, Peace of Mind With Taraji: “My boyfriend does make me very happy. He definitely takes care of me emotionally. He makes my brain feel good. He makes my heart feel good.”
