Megan Thee Stallion says she ‘suffered gunshot wounds’ and police drove her to hospital

Rapper Megan Thee Stallion said Wednesday that she was shot multiple times on Sunday but expects to fully recover.

“I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me,” the 25-year-old Texan, whose legal name is Megan Pete, wrote in an Instagram post, without saying who shot her or why.

“I’m incredibly grateful to be alive and that I’m expected to make a full recovery.”

Los Angeles police had no immediate comment on the incident in the Hollywood Hills early Sunday. But Officer Jeff Lee confirmed that Canadian rapper Tory Lanez, who was with Pete that evening, was arrested on a concealed weapons charge.

Lee said the Instagram post has been pointed out to the detectives in the case and they’re looking into it.

The Brampton, Ont., hip-hop artist Lanez was released after posting bail later Sunday, Los Angeles County jail records showed.

Messages left with representatives for the two rappers seeking more details were not immediately returned.

Pete said she wanted to correct an inaccurate narrative about what happened that evening, apparently referring to a TMZ story on Lanez’s arrest that said she was treated only for broken glass in her foot and did not mention gunfire.

Pete said on Instagram that “the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets,” adding that “it was important for me to clarify the details about this traumatic night.”

Top 40 singles

Megan Thee Stallion has seen a serious recent rise on the rap and pop music scene, topping the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart this year with her Beyoncé-assisted remix of Savage, which had a viral moment on the video-sharing platform TikTok. The song is from her nine-track album Suga, which was released in March and helped the performer win best female hip-hop artist at last month’s BET Awards, besting Cardi B, Nicki Minaj and Lizzo.

She’s also scored Top 40 pop hits with Hot Girl SummerCash S–t and the recent single Girls in the Hood.

Suga comes after the release of the projects Fever and Tina Snow that helped establish Stallion’s name in music. Last year she made the 2019 TIME 100 Next List, was named one of the AP’s Breakthrough Entertainers of the Year, won prizes at the MTV Video Music Awards and BET Hip-Hop Awards and was honoured by Variety and Billboard magazines.
