Rapper Megan Thee Stallion has revealed on Instagram that she was shot multiple times and underwent surgery on the weekend.
In an Instagram post addressing recent rumours that she was arrested, the 25-year-old “Savage” rapper refuted those claims, explaining that the crime was “committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me”.
Her full statement reads, “The narrative that is being reported about Sunday’s morning events are inaccurate and I’d like to set the record straight. 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. 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.”
In the caption for the post, she added, “I was never arrested. 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.”
According to TMZ (if you wanna take their word…) the incident occurred when cops were called to a Hollywood Hills party that Meg and rapper Tory Lanez attended.
The initial call came after witnesses heard gunshots after two unknown people were arguing in an SUV. After locating the SUV, police found a gun, after which Lanez was arrested for possessing a concealed weapon.
It is believed Megan was shot in the foot, but is stable.
Wishing Meg a speedy recovery!
