Megan Thee Stallion Addresses Gunshot Injuries and Her Recovery

Megan Thee Stallion has opened up about the altercation in which she suffered gunshot injuries and her physical and emotional recovery since.

Megan was shot during an altercation on July 12 for which rapper Tory Lanez was arrested for a felony gun charge. It still hasn’t been officially confirmed that Lanez shot her.

Utilizing Instagram live on Monday, the Houston rapper thanked her fans and friends who’ve supported her. She also addressed the fake friends and social users who’ve ignorantly made up stories and attempted to make jokes about her trauma.

“I see a lot of people painting fake ass narratives and making up stories and all this other wack ass shit,” said Megan. “But I also see a lot of people being very supportive and sending prayers, and I just really appreciate that.”

Megan revealed she didn’t put her hands on anyone and that she was actually shot in both feet. Thankfully, the bullets missed her bones and tendons, a blessing she attributes to her late parents and grandmother watching over her.

Moving forward, the Savage rapper plans to be more protective of her energy. Tearfully, she shared how losing both her parents made her uber inviting of others.

“Imagine being 25 and you don’t have both of your parents. My mama was my best friend. I’m still really not over that. So you like, kinda try to fill your space with a bunch of people that you think is making you happy. I just feel like I was moving really fast. I wasn’t taking enough time for myself. I thought I was ready to give good energy to other people and other people weren’t ready to give good energy to me,” said Megan.
