Megan thee Stallion has just revealed that she was shot over the weekend and was taken to the hospital by the police. There were rumors circulating that the rapper was arrested after being injured in the foot by glass, however, she is clarifying that she was only in the police car because she was being taken to treat her injuries.
“I suffered gunshot wounds as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me,” she said, in her first statement since the incident took place early Sunday.

Megan and an unidentified woman were in a car with rapper Tory Lanez when he was arrested early Sunday for having a concealed weapon in the vehicle, after officers received reports that Lanez was present when shots were fired outside a house in the Hollywood Hills. Megan (real name: Megan Pete) was not arrested at the time but was reported by TMZ to have suffered an injury to her foot due to broken glass on the floor of the car. But according to Megan’s statement, that is not the case.
“The narrative that is being reported about Sunday’s morning events are inaccurate and I’d like to set the record straight,” she wrote. “On Sunday morning, I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me. I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets. I’m incredibly grateful to be alive and that I’m expected to make a full recovery, but it was important for me to clarify the details about this traumatic night. I’m currently focused on my recovery, so I can return back to my life and back to making music as soon as possible.”
She did not identify who fired the shots that injured her; reps for Megan, Tory Lanez and the LAPD did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for further information.
