Megan Thee Stallion has accused Tory Lanez of shooting her in both feet in a July incident.

“Tory shot me” after an argument in a car, rapper Megan claimed in an Instagram live.

Singer Tory Lanez – whose real name is Daystar Peterson – was later charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

Megan claimed she feared police would start shooting if she said a gun was involved, so she told them she’d stepped on broken glass.

“I didn’t tell the police nothing, because I didn’t want us to get in no more trouble than we was about to get in.”

Tory was arrested at the time – 12 July – on the open charge of carrying a concealed firearm. He was released later that day.

Radio 1 Newsbeat has contacted Tory Lanez’ representatives for comment.

Tory Lanez has been quiet since the incident but Megan Thee Stallion accused his team of spreading misinformation online.

“Stop acting like black women is aggressive when all they be doing is speaking the… facts, and you… can’t handle it,” she said.

She spoke about being called a “snitch” online – and also disputed claims that she hit Tory Lanez before the shooting.

‘The bullets didn’t touch bones’

Megan, whose real name is Megan Pete, has previously described the incident but didn’t say who shot her.

“I had to get surgery to get it taken out, get the bullets taken out, and it was super scary,” she said in July.

She told her followers about what happened and referred to her family. Her mum – also her manager – died in March 2019.

“It was just the worst experience of my life, and it’s not funny,” she said.

“It’s nothing to joke about and it’s 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 Thee Stallion said she had surgery to remove the bullets

Despite being shot at least twice, she said her injuries weren’t serious.

“And thank God that the bullets didn’t touch bones, they didn’t break tendons,” she said previously.

“I know my mama and my daddy and my granny had to be looking out for me with that one, because where the bullets hit at, they missed everything, but they were in there.

“And it’s not that I was protecting anybody, I just wasn’t ready to speak.”

Megan previously described it as an act “with the intention to physically harm me,” in an Instagram post following the incident.

The Los Angeles Times quoted the LA Police Department at the time as saying one person was taken to the hospital “with a foot injury”.

Newsbeat has contacted the LA District Attorney, whose spokesperson told Billboard it was considering whether to file charges against Tory Lanez.
