A famous drag queen denies stealing a huge sum of money from a guest who claims the performer directly robbed her in plain sight…a moment that has been captured on video.
Bryan Watkins – who currently plays “Shannel” for the “Drag Brunch” show in Vegas – was accused of collecting between $500 and $700 from the purse of a woman named Meggy during a performance last weekend. Video of the event appears to show Bryan taking some cash, although it’s unclear how much.
Bryan – who appeared on Season 1 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ – says he absolutely did NOT take the large amount that Meggy is asking for.
Now, as for the actual accusation here – Meggy described it pretty clearly in a viral TikTok video… saying that Bryan was going around the room for some kind of purse gag, and eventually came to the his – who had $1,300 in there for his birthday blowout.
Meggy claims Bryan rummaged through her purse and retrieved a large wad of cash – and when she confronted him about it … he kicked her off the show, without returning the money.
Bryan admits to taking loot, but says it was only a few dollars as a gag, not hundreds as Meggy claimed. He says venue management refunded the woman’s tickets and even offered to pay her $700 as a good-faith apology…but it wasn’t enough.
Meggy claims to have gone to the cops for the alleged robbery … but a spokesperson for the Las Vegas Metro Police Department tells us they have no record of the incident.
Either way, Bryan says he’ll never touch a member of the public’s business again.
