During a very heated Instagram live session Megan Thee Stallion finally reveals it was in fact Tory that shot her.
In a fiery Instagram Live session on Thursday night, Megan Thee Stallion claimed that rapper Tory Lanez is indeed the person who shot her in a July 12 incident in Los Angeles. In the early hours of that day, Lanez was arrested for possessing a concealed weapon; Megan and two other people were in the vehicle with him at the time of the arrest, although the shooting took place beforehand.
“Yes, Tory shot me,” she says. “You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people to [talk to] these blogs, lying and sh–. Stop lying!”
Later in the session, she says that she did not tell law-enforcement officers that Lanez was the shooter because of recent police violence.
“I didn’t tell the police nothing because I didn’t want us to get in no more trouble,” she says.
Megan 25, whose real name is “Megan Pete”, Lanez, his bodyguard, and an unidentified woman who is speculated to be Megan’s close friend Kelsey Nicole had attended a party at Kylie Jenner’s Hollywood home earlier in the evening. The four were pulled over by police after a report of gunfire outside a second residence; a witness described the car they were traveling in. While initial reports said Megan had cut her feet on broken glass inside the car, she later claimed she was shot, but without identifying the gunman, who was widely suspected to be Lanez.
Lanez, whom Megan was said to be dating, was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon. Surveillance video footage of the arrest shows Megan limping from the SUV, leaving bloody footprints. Nicole said in an Instagram post last month that she was present in the car at the time, but was not the shooter.
Surveillance footage of the arrest shows Lanez, the unidentified woman, and later Megan lying spread-eagled on the ground near the vehicle, surrounded by multiple police cars with a helicopter hovering overheard.
“If you wanna tell the truth, I saved Tory Lanez,” she says.
A representative for the Los Angeles Police Department said on Thursday night that there has been no update in the investigation into the incident, which began last month based on Megan’s claims in an earlier Instagram post. “On July 24, our office asked law enforcement for further investigation before making a filing decision on a charge of felony assault with a semiautomatic firearm – personal use of a firearm,” against (Lanez),” reads a statement from the district attorney’s office.
Lanez, 28, a Canadian citizen whose real name is Daystar Peterson, has kept a low profile since the incident.
