Megan Thee Stallion continues to speak out this week, expressing her frustration and anger at the fact that women are continually putting others before themselves.
Stallion was in the car with him and suffered a gunshot wound. She says the police transported her to the hospital so that she could be treated.
The rapper tweeted:
“Black women are so unprotected & we hold so many things in to protect the feelings of others w/o considering our own.”
It might be funny to y’all on the internet and just another messy topic for you to talk about but this is my real life and I’m real life hurt and traumatized.”
On Wednesday, she said she wanted to set the record straight about what happened that day and shared a note on Instagram, writing:
“The narrative that is being reported about Sunday’s morning events are inaccurate and I’d like to set the record straight.
On Sunday morning, I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me. I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets.”
She added a caption to her note, and said that the incident was an “eye opener” for how women are treated.
“I was never arrested. This whole experience was an eye opener and a blessing in disguise. I hate that it took this experience for me to learn how to protect my energy.
I’m incredibly thankful to be alive and that I’m expected to make a full recovery, but it was important for me to clarify the details about this traumatic night.
I’m currently focused on my recovery, so I can return back to my life and back to making music as soon as possible.”
TMZ reported that Stallion had an injury on her foot from broken glass on the floor of the car, but Megan says she was shot by someone. She has not named the suspect.
Police have not confirmed that Lanez was the suspected shooter. An LAPD spokesperson says based on Megan’s statements, police have opened an investigation into a possible assault with a deadly weapon.
Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, posted $35,000 bail and was released. He is expected back in court on Oct. 13.
