Tory Lanez Named In Megan Thee Stallion Shooting
Rapper and songwriter Megan Thee Stallion (born Megan Jovon Ruth Pete) has for the first time in nearly a month broken her previous silence over who had been responsible for hiving shot her in the foot after a Hollywood Hills party in Los Angeles on July 12. Canadian rapper and hip-hop superstar Tory Lanez, real name Daystar Peterson, so claims Stallion in a recent Instagram post, was the person to have squeezed the trigger.
The 25-year-old rapper/songstress now claims that Lanez had been lying about the incident all along – as were his publicist and the rest of his “people”. When asked why she failed to inform Los Angeles police regarding her having got shot in the foot, she explained that she had feared for her safety – not to mention the accompanying legal repercussions.
Not wanting to get “in no more” trouble, she decided instead not to say anything to the police who had been summoned to the scene of the July 12 altercation, says Pete in a tell-all Instagram video.
No Case Outcome Yet
According to police and prosecutors, the case is currently still under investigation. Initially arrested on the morning of the shooting, Peterson had reportedly been taken into custody on suspicion of the possession of a concealed firearm. He was however released later that day and has reportedly to date not been officially charged.
According to Pete, she had on the day of the incident attended the same party as Peterson and had after the time shared an SUV with a group of people that included the Canadian hip-hop star. An argument had allegedly ensued, and when Pete tried to walk away from the vehicle and the altercation, Peterson had according to her version of the events, randomly pulled out his weapon before shooting her in the foot.
She strongly denied rumours that she had hit the rapper whilst still in the vehicle.
First Time Speaking Out
After publicly confirming that she had been wounded in a shooting incident only a week after the incident in question, Pete has been mostly mum regarding the details related to the night in question. The only time she ever volunteered any information was in response to what she referred to as “false rumours” being spread on social media.
She previously outright refused to reveal the identity of the shooter, only ever saying that what had happened had necessitated surgery, and that the shooting had been the worst experience of her life. She feels lucky and blessed to be alive, said Pete.
