American rapper, singer and songwriter Megan Thee Stallion says she was shot multiple times in the foot on Sunday. The 25-year-old (real name: Megan Pete) and an unidentified woman were a car with rapper Tory Lanez (real name: Daystar Peterson) when he was pulled over and arrested for concealing a weapon in the early hours of Sunday morning in the Hollywood Hills.
Police officers reportedly were called after shots were fired outside a house. While Pete was not arrested, TMZ are reporting she suffered an injury to her foot due to broken glass on the floor of the car. The publication says law enforcement sources told them officers took the singer to the hospital for treatment.
But the “Savage” singer is telling a different story. She says she was shot in the foot, as per her latest Instagram.
“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. 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.”
She added in a comment on Instagram, “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.”
TMZ posted distant footage of the dramatic scene where Peterson was arrested. You can see Pete limp on the footpath and her foot leaving traces of blood with every step.
An unidentified woman also exits the vehicle. We are predicting this person could be Pete’s friend Kelsey Nicole who posted to her Instagram that she was present at the shooting. “I want to clear up the rumours that I shot Megan,” she writes. “I wasn’t the one with the gun and would never do something like that. However I was present.”
Earlier in the evening, Pete and Peterson attended a party a Kylie Jenner’s house.
According to the police report, Peterson was arrested on felony charges at 4.40am Sunday and released on a USD $35,000 bond around six hours later. He has a court date scheduled for October 13.
