Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion has finally confirmed Tory Lanez shot her after revealing little to no details of the July 12 incident that left her injured in both feet and in need of surgery “to remove the bullets.”
Lanez, real name Daystar Peterson, was arrested and charged with a felony. The Canadian rapper and singer was later released after posting a $35,000 bail.
Hopping on her Instagram Live on Thursday, the WAP rapper called out Lanez and his team for trying to twist the story. Before going live, the rapper tweeted: “Lie one more time and ima quit sparing you.”
“Y’all hoes so worried ’bout it. Yes, this n**** Tory shot me,” Megan, 25, revealed. “You shot me. And you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs lying and sh*t. Stop lying. Why lie? I don’t understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you dragging it. You really f***ing dragging it. M****f**kas talkin’ ‘bout I hit this n****. I never hit you. M***f**kas was like, ‘Oh she mad ’cause he was tryna f**k with Kylie.’ No I wasn’t. You dry shot me.”
She continued: “Everybody in the car…it’s only four m****f**kas in the car. Me, you, my homegirl and yo security. Everybody in the car arguing. I’m in the front seat, this n*** in the backseat. I get out the car, I’m done arguing. I don’t wanna argue no more. I get out. I’m walking away. This n***, from out the backseat of the car, start shooting me. You shot me. I ain’t get cut by no glass.”
Megan, who received an outpouring of support from fellow female musicians including Rihanna and Beyoncé in the aftermath of the incident, went ahead to explain why she chose not to tell police there was a gun in the SUV when they got pulled over. According to the rapper, she was scared she would be racially profiled by the cops.
“Cause the people in the neighborhood…there’s a witness,” she claimed. “When the police came because the neighbors called the police. This did not happen at Kylie’s house. This happened damn near back at the house I was staying at. I was just tryna get home. I was five minutes away from my spot. The police come. I’m scared. All this sh*t going on with the police.
“The police is shooting m***f**kas for anything. The police was literally killing Black people for no m****f****ng reason. Soon as the police tell us all get out the m****f****ng car, the police is really aggressive. You think I’m ’bout to tell the police that we, n****, us Black people, got a gun in the car? You want me to tell the laws that we got a gun in the car, so they can shoot all of us up? N****, I’m scared. It’s a f**k**g helicopter over us and some mo sh*t. Why the f**k would I tell the laws somebody got a gun in the car and this n**** shot me? So I can get shot, you can get shot, she can get shot?.”
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office is exploring the possibility of filing charges against Lanez, 28, for the shooting. A spokesperson from LADA told Billboard they have requested authorities to provide more information about the case before they decide whether or not to file felony assault with a semiautomatic firearm charge against the Canadian musician.
