Tell her side. Megan Thee Stallion returned to social media with an emotional update on her terrifying shooting and recovery from surgery.
“I got shot with both feet and I had to have surgery to get the bullet out, to get the bullets out,” said the 25-year-old rapper from “Hot Girl Summer.” via Instagram Live on Monday, July 27, in tears. “I had to have an operation. It was super scary. It was simply the worst experience of my life and it is not funny. It’s nothing to joke about and nothing to go around and make fake stories. I have not laid hands on anyone. I didn’t deserve to be shot. I did not do it. ‘
Megan (real name Megan Jovon Ruth Pete) continued, “Thank God the bullets didn’t touch the bones. They have not broken the tendons. I know my mom and dad, my grandma had to watch for me there, because where the bullets hit, it missed everything, but the mother was there. ‘
Megan added that recovering from the injuries “made me absolutely aware of how to move forward,” noting that she “didn’t take enough time for myself.”
In addition to her Instagram Live update, Megan also posted a beautiful picture of herself which read, “Unbreakable 💜.” The image was accompanied by a video in which she flashed her huge diamond necklace and beautiful watch.
Megan was transported to a Los Angeles hospital on July 12 after sustaining gunshot wounds to both feet. The ‘Savage’ artist was there Tory Lanez at the time of the incident. They both hung out earlier that night Kylie Jenner‘s house.
The 28-year-old rapper “Stupid Again”, born Daystar Peterson, was arrested on a crime charge. Lanez placed bail and was released later that day. He is expected to appear in court in October.
Rumors speculated that Megan was also arrested along with Lanez, but she clarified via Instagram that she was “never” taken into custody. “This whole experience was an eye opener and a blessing in disguise,” she wrote in the caption to her post on July 15. “I hate that I needed this experience to learn how to protect my energy.”
In that same Instagram update, the hitmaker of “Captain Hook” clarified the inaccuracies in the “story” circulating on the Internet. “On Sunday morning, I received gunshot wounds from a crime committed against me with the intention of harming me,” she explained at the time, sharing a screenshot of a pre-typed statement. “I was never arrested, the police drove me to the hospital where I had surgery to remove the bullets.”
Megan continued, “I am deeply grateful that I am alive and expected to make a full recovery, but it was important to me to clarify the details of this traumatic night. I am currently focused on my recovery, so I can return to my life and make music again as soon as possible. ”
Two days later, Megan tweeted that black women are “so unprotected and we hold back so many things to protect the feelings of others without considering ours.”
