In a live Instagram broadcast in August, she said, “Tory shot me. You shot me, and you got your publicist and your employees to go to these blogs, to lie and to shit. Stop lying. ”
Lanez was arrested in July following the incident, charged with carrying a concealed weapon and released on bail. In August, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said it was reviewing the case for a possible assault charge and asked Los Angeles Police to investigate further.
According to information released immediately after the incident, Megan Thee Stallion, real name Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, had cut her foot on broken glass, but made a statement three days later saying: “I ‘ suffered gunshot wounds as a result of a crime that was committed against me and committed with intent to injure me physically. She also posted and then deleted a graphic image of her foot during the operation, writing, “I got hit on the back of my feet… why would I lie before I get shot?”
On her new album, Lanez questions her story, rapping on Money Over Fallouts: “How the hell did you touch your foot, don’t hit bones or tendons?” The medical records indicated that shrapnel had been removed from his left heel.
In her Instagram statement in August, she detailed other allegations about the incident. She suggested that there had been an argument in a car between her, Lanez, her friend and her security guard. “I get out of the car, I’m done arguing… I walk away. [Lanez], from the back seat of the car, begins to shoot me. You shot me.
She said she initially blamed the injury on broken glass because she was afraid of the police following high-profile incidents of brutality against black people. “The police are coming, I’m afraid. The police were literally killing black people for no reason. The police are really aggressive. Do you think I’m about to tell the police that we black people have a gun in the car?
On the track Queen and Slim, Lanez raps: “I wasn’t wrong that night, you were too drunk to even see it… I never even had an argument with you. On the In the Air track, he raps “I never hit any woman,” and says the situation is a test of God: “He uses Megan as a vessel and a test of faith. ”
The rappers are both major stars in the United States. Megan is currently # 1 in the US and UK with her collaboration with Cardi B, WAP. This is her second American chart of the year after the remix of her track Savage, starring Beyoncé. Toronto rapper Lanez has released five full projects, all of which reached the top five in the US, most recently in April with The New Toronto 3, which was also one of the top five UK hits.
