Megan Thee Stallion Said She Was Shot During ‘Traumatic Night’
The “Savage” rapper took to Instagram on Wednesday to address an incident that occurred over the weekend, which ended in Tory Lanez’ arrest. Meg recounted the “traumatic night” and revealed that she suffered gunshot wounds and was hospitalized in a crime committed against her.
“The narrative that is being reported about Sunday’s morning events are inaccurate and I’d like to set the record straight,” she wrote. “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.”
Footage shows Megan being placed in handcuffs, but she was not arrested. Instead, she was taken to the hospital to undergo surgery for her bullet wounds. “I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets,” she added. “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.”
Megan is now in recovery and looks forward to getting back to her life. “I’m currently focused on my recovery, so I can return back to my life and back to making music as soon as possible.”
Added Meg, “This whole experience was an eye opener and a blessing in disguise. I hate that it took this experience for me to learn how to protect my energy.”
TMZ reports that police received a call of a disturbance outside a Hollywood Hills residence around 4:30 a.m. Sunday. When officers arrived, people were reportedly arguing in an SUV before multiple shots were fired in the air and the vehicle took off. The cops tracked down the car and detained Megan, Tory, and another woman. Tory was arrested and booked for carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle.
