Headlines 21/08/2020

After much speculation and rumours, Megan Thee Stallion has finally broken her silence on what went down when she was shot in LA earlier this year.

The WAP rapper took to IG live to break the news, directly accusing Canadian rapper Tory Lanez of shooting her, and then accusing his PR team of lying about the incident.

"Yes, this n***a Tory shot me. You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs, lying and sh*t," she said. "Stop lying. Why lie? I don't understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you're dragging it."

The Houston native then went on to deny rumours that she had physically assaulted Lanez in the lead up to the shooting, claiming that his team also fabricated that narrative that it had anything to do Lanez' supposed interest in Kylie Jenner.

"I never hit you. Motherf*ckers were like, 'Oh she's mad 'cause he's trying to f*ck with Kylie Jenner.' No I wasn't," she continued. "You shot me."

Meg detailed her side of the story, claiming that there were two others in the vehicle when the shooting occurred, Lanez' security guard and a friend of hers.

"I get out the car ... I don't want to argue anymore," she said. "I get out. I'm walking away. This n***a, from out the back seat of the car, starts shooting me. You shot me! I didn't get cut by no glass."

She also explained why she didn't disclose all the details of the shooting to Police at the time, citing their on going mistreatment of African American's as the reason why she was initially apprehensive to communicate.

"The police come, I'm scared. All this sh*t going on with the police? The police is shooting motherf*ckers for anything," she continued. "The police was literally killing Black people for no motherf*cking reason."

Meg then said the responding officers were very aggressive, which is why she decided not to reveal what had happened.

"You think I'm about to tell the police that we—n***as, us Black people—got a gun in the car?" she said. "You want me to tell them we got in a gun in a car so they can shoot all of us up? N***a, I'm scared ... Why the f*ck would I tell [the police] somebody got a gun in this car and this n***a shot me? So I can get shot, you can get shot, she can get shot, he can get shot?"

On the night of the shooting, Los Angeles police arrested Lanez on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon. Meg later revealed she had been shot in both feet during the incident, but had never identified the shooter by name. 

Shortly before Meg's Thursday night livestream, Richardo Santiago, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, told Billboard prosecutors have yet to decide whether they will pursue assault charges against Lanez. They will reportedly make a decision once law enforcement provides more details from the investigation.
