For the first time, Megan Thee Stallion has publicly identified Tory Lanez as the suspect who allegedly shot her in both feet.
In an Instagram Live posted Thursday night, the “WAP” rapper said the fellow rapper “shot me” in July after they both attended a party in the Hollywood Hills.
“Yes, this ----- Tory shot me. You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people to these blogs lying and ----, stop lying!” she said. “Why lie? I don’t understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you’re dragging it.”
TMZ reported on July 12 that Tory was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle following an alleged argument outside of the party. Police say Megan, who was also at the scene and listed as a “victim” in the incident, was taken to a hospital and was treated for the wounds to her feet.
Per jail records, Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, posted his $35,000 bail and was released at 10:05 a.m.
In an Instagram post published July 15, Megan did not name names, but said she “suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the attention to physically harm me.” She also clarified that she was not arrested.
A day later, sources told TMZ that Tory allegedly opened fire on Megan after he got into an argument with Megan and her friend Kelsey Nicole in a chauffeur-driven SUV. Insiders say Tory allegedly opened fire from inside the vehicle, and allegedly hit Megan in the feet twice.
On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reported that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office is considering charging Tory with felony assault with a firearm over the alleged incident with Megan.
Earlier that day on her IG page, Megan posted and deleted photos of her wounds, and reiterated that she was the victim of an attack.
“Lol what I have learned abt majority of the people on social media is y’all like to hear bad news before good news, a lie spreads quicker than the truth, and y’all really be believing the ---- YALL make up,” she wrote in the caption, adding, “Why would I lie abt getting shot? Why are y’all so upset that I don’t wanna be in the bed sad? Why y’all upset that I can walk?”
With regard to his firearm charges, Tory is scheduled to appear in court on October 13.
