Megan Thee Stallion Speaks For the First Time Since Los Angeles Shooting

Megan thee Stallion revealed she’d undergone surgery to remove bullets from both feet.

For nearly ten minutes on Monday afternoon, Megan thee Stallion started an Instagram live broadcast to address her fans. The broadcast was her first public appearance since the July 12 shooting in Los Angeles.

During the broadcast, she revealed that she’d been shot in both feet, and underwent surgery for both. “I was shot in both my feet,” she said. “I had to get surgery to get the bullets taken out. It was super scary.”

Megan revealed that despite the surgery, the bullets didn’t cause any structural damage to her feet.

“Thank God that the bullets didn’t touch bones or break tendons,” she said. “Where the bullets hit at, they missed everything.”

Megan also denied online speculation that a physical altercation led to the shooting. “It’s not funny, it’s nothing to joke about,” she said. “Nothing for y’all to go and be making fake stories about. I didn’t put my hands on nobody, I didn’t deserve to get shot.”

Megan revealed that she didn’t initially give LAPD an account of what happened because she wasn’t ready to speak.

“It’s not that I was protecting anybody,” she continued. “I just wasn’t ready to speak. Y’all take your whole life to Instagram and Twiter and make it a diary, and that’s not me. I ain’t never seen so many men chime in something that ain’t none of their motherf —in’ business. What if your sister got shot?”

Tory Lanez has been arrested and booked on felony charges of carrying a concealed weapon. Stay tuned for further updates regarding the case.
