“Savage” rapper Megan Thee Stallion says she was shot in both feet during a mysterious incident two weeks ago that landed her in the hospital.
Breaking her silence in an Instagram Live video Monday, the performer gave new details to counter what she called “fake” accounts of what happened July 12.
“I was shot in both of my feet and I had to get surgery to get the sh-- taken out, get the bullets taken out,” she said.
“I had to get surgery. It was super scary. It was like just the worst experience of my life,” she said.
“Thank god that the bullets didn’t touch bones, they didn’t break tendons,” she said. “Where the bullets hit at, it missed everything. But the motherf---ers was in there.”
The musician remained vague about the circumstances that led up to the shooting but said others have been circulating false “narratives.”
“I didn’t put my hands on nobody. I didn’t deserve to get shot. I didn’t do sh--,” she said Monday.
“It’s not that I was protecting anybody. I just wasn’t ready to speak,” she said of her two weeks of relative silence.
“It has definitely made me realize how to move forward, and how to protect my energy,” she said, breaking down in tears as she recalled the loss of her mother last year.
“I was moving too fast. I wasn’t taking enough time for myself. I thought I was ready to be around a bunch of motherf---ers,” she said, cryptically.
The 25-year-old entertainer, whose real name is Megan Pete, posted an Instagram message two weeks ago saying only that she “suffered gunshot wounds” on July 12 “as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me.”
The account countered a TMZ report from July 13 that said Megan, fellow musician Tory Lanez and an unidentified woman were found in an SUV that was stopped by police who allegedly tracked it from the scene of a reported shooting outside a home in the Hollywood Hills on July 12.
TMZ said Megan was listed as a “victim” in the incident report and transported to a hospital for treatment of “wounds to her foot.”
Neither she nor her representatives have released information about who allegedly shot her.
Hours before the alleged shooting, Megan and Tory appeared together on her Instagram Live with Kylie Jenner at what TMZ described as an apparent pool party at Kylie’s Holmby Hills residence.
