SHOOTING EXPERIENCE WITH TORY LANEZ
On July 15, 2020, Megan Thee Stallion stated that she had suffered gunshot wounds and that she had undergone surgery to remove the bullets. The following month, Megan claimed that Lanez was the person who shot her, saying that “I didn’t tell the police what happened immediately right there because I didn’t want to die.”
Megan addressed the shooting further, writing: “Black women are still constantly disrespected and disregarded in so many areas of life. I was recently the victim of an act of violence by a man. After a party, I was shot twice as I walked away from him. We were not in a relationship. Truthfully, I was shocked that I ended up in that place”
Originally from Houston, Texas, she first garnered attention when videos of her freestyling became popular on social media platforms such as Instagram.
