Tory allegedly fired the gunshots from within the vehicle” while “Megan was outside trying to leave,” a source told PageSix.
“Tory fired the shots from within the vehicle while Megan was outside trying to leave. There is a video and the police are investigating. This is a case of a man physically harming and abusing a woman,” the source told the publication.
The LAPD is currently investigating the incident and would not say whether Lanez is a suspect.
“The detectives are seeking information regarding the shooting involving Daystar Peterson, and the investigation is still ongoing. I’m not privileged to what the detectives have right now,” a spokesperson said.
On Saturday night (July 11), Megan Thee Stallion shared on Instagram Live that she was hanging out with Kylie Jenner and Lanez in a pool just hours before police responded to a “shots fired” call outside of a Hollywood Hills home at around 4:30 a.m.
On Sunday morning (July 12), Tory Lanez was arrested after police pulled over his SUV and charged the “Shooters” crooner with carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle. The rapper posted $35,000 bail and was released at 10:05 a.m. The Canadian rapper is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 13.
On Wednesday (July 15), Megan addressed the shooting incident on Instagram, revealing that she was hospitalized after suffering multiple gunshot wounds.
“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 wrote.
“I’m incredibly grateful 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,” she continued.
“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,” she added in the caption of her post.
She did not name who shot her or mention Tory Lanez.[sociallocker id=”8766″] [/sociallocker]
Megan Thee Stallion’s best friend Kelsey Nicole, who was also in the vehicle, has denied that she was the one who shot Megan.
“I WASN’T the one with the gun and would never do something like that. However I was present,” she said.
Megan’s music producer, Lil Ju, has sent out a series of tweets that appear to condemn Tory Lanez’s role in the incident.
“@torylanez count your fu*king days,” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet.
“I care about my people being straight! Give a damn about some clout,” the “Suga” producer added in a separate tweet.
Footage of Megan Thee Stallion exiting Tory Lanez’s car with what appears to be blood dripping from her feet was released by TMZ.
“One person was transported to the hospital for a foot injury,” a spokesperson for the LAPD confirmed to PageSix.
