WATCH: Megan Thee Stallion Explains She Was Shot In Both Feet In Tearful Video
Megan Thee Stallion described how she was shot in both of her feet in a tearful video on Monday on Instagram Live. Her statements come just a few weeks after her previous claim to have been shot contradicted with Los Angeles Police Department records.
In her live video Stallion said, “I was shot in both of my feet, and I had to get surgery to … get the bullets taken out, and it was super scary.” Stallion explained that the bullets had missed her bones, “I know my mama and my daddy, my granny had to be looking out for me with that one cause where the bullets hit at, it missed everything.”
She went on, “It was nothing for y’all to start going and making up fake stories about. I didn’t put my hands on nobody. I didn’t deserve to get shot.”
Earlier this month, rapper Tory Lanez was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon. Police came to the 1800 block of Nichols Canyon in Hollywood Hills, California at about 4:30 a.m. for a “shots fired investigation.”
A statement produced by the LAPD said that on person involved in the incident was taken to the hospital “with a foot injury.” Two sources further explained to the Los Angeles Times that the injuries Stallion was facing were consistent to those that would occur with glass.
Stallion took to her Instagram on July 15 in an attempt to set the record straight. She wrote, “the narrative that is being reported about Sunday’s morning events are inaccurate. On Sunday morning, I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me.”
She added, “I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets. I’m incredibly grateful to be alive and that I’m expected to make a full recovery, but it was important for me to clarify the details about this traumatic night. I’m currently focused on my recovery, so I can return back to my life and back to making music as soon as possible.”
