According to several sites, Lanez and Megan had left a party in the Hollywood Hills on July 12 when the incident happened. Megan was getting out of the SUV she was in when Lanez allegedly shot at her.
Lanez was arrested after the shooting and charged with having a concealed weapon in a vehicle, a felony charge. His next court date is Oct. 13.
There was also footage of Megan’s blood at the scene. Megan isn’t naming anyone in the incident, but she is speaking out about what happened that night.
She told fans, “I was shot…in both of my feet and I had to get surgery to get the sh*t taken out, to get the bullets taken out. And it was super scary.”
She reiterated that she wasn’t doing anything to put herself in that position, saying, “I didn’t put my hands on nobody. I didn’t deserve to get shot…I didn’t do sh*t.”
She also became tearful, explaining that both her parents were not around to help her cope.
“Imagine being 25 and you don’t have both of your parents. My mama was my best friend, I’m still not really over that. So you kind of like try to fill your space with a bunch of people that you think is making you happy,” she said.
Holly Thomas, who was Megan’s manager, died of a brain tumor.
Megan talked more about her injuries, thanking God that the bullets missed the bones in her feet.
“Oh Lord, I didn’t think I was going to cry. But yeah I had to get surgery and it was super scary. Just the worst experience of my life. And it’s not funny, there’s nothing to joke about. It was nothing for y’all to make up stories about.
Thank god that the bullets didn’t touch bones. Like they didn’t break tendons. I know my mama, my daddy and my granny had to be looking out for me with that one cause where the bullets hit, it missed everything. But the motherf**kers was in there.”

Fans were talking about how close Megan came to the incident in Lanez’ SUV being much, much worse. Many, including @imani_yvonne2, say the shooting was a deliberate act.
“I dont think people understand that man was trying to cripple her for life & ruin her life. That was very deliberate. Imagine the sick way to think about shooting a performer in their feet. Just wow.”
@imani_yvonne2 continued: “He was trying to ruin her career. He wasn’t trying to killer and go to jail for murder.”
@JadaGomez said the media coverage of the incident would have been different if Megan Thee Stallion was white:
“Media failed this woman. If any other non-Black artist was shot in the foot by another well-known artist, there would have been think pieces all over mainstream. What happened? During our great awareness of anti-Black racism?”
Megan confirmed that both of her feet had to get surgery and addressed the false claim about “sources” saying that she put her hands on Tory Lanez pic.twitter.com/TVs58Q41Qt
