Megan Thee Stallion has revealed the shocking news she “suffered gunshot wounds” in an altercation Sunday morning that ended with Tory Lanez being arrested for carrying a concealed weapon. She cleared up the details of the event in a post on Instagram Wednesday. “The narrative that is being reported about Sunday’s morning events are inaccurate and I’d like to set the record straight,” she said in a statement.
“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 clarifies that she was never arrested and that the police officers took her to the hospital where she had “surgery to remove the bullets.”
TMZ initially reported that Thee Stallion had a “cut” on her foot from broken glass. “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.” She’s currently recovering, so she can come back to music “as soon as possible.”
The altercation happened early Sunday morning after shots were fired outside a house in the Hollywood Hills and an SUV reportedly similar to Lanez’s was seen leaving. Officers allegedly found a concealed weapon while searching the rapper’s car. Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion were hanging out at pool parties earlier in the day, even meeting up with Kylie Jenner. The sobering ending seems to have been a wake-up call. “This whole experience was an eye opener and a blessing in disguise,” The Stallion wrote on Instagram. “I hate that it took this experience for me to learn how to protect my energy.”
