Megan Thee Stallion is claiming fellow rapper Tory Lanez is the one who shot her.

The Savage hitmaker was taken to the hospital last month after getting shot in the foot. She was in a car with Tory Lanez when he was arrested on a concealed weapons charge.

Now, in an Instagram Live on Thursday, the 25-year-old is hitting back at the rapper she's thought to have been dating, revealing he was the one who allegedly shot her.

"You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people to [talk to] these blogs, lying and shit. Stop lying!" she said in the live.

According to Variety, she later said that she didn't tell officers it was Tory who shot her in light of recent police violence. "I didn't tell the police nothing because I didn't want us to get in no more trouble," she said.

"I tried to keep the situation off the internet but you draggin' it," Megan said during the Instagram Live, before addressing numerous claims made by fans about the incident.

"Motherfuckers [claiming that] I hit him — I never hit you! Motherfuckers are like, 'She mad because he's trying to fuck with Kylie [Jenner] — no, I wasn't."

The incident is thought to have happened after the pair and their friends left a party at Kylie Jenner's house.

"There's only four motherfuckers in the car: me, you, my homegirl and your security — everybody in the car is arguing. I'm in the front seat, he's in the back. I get out the car, I'm done arguing, I'm walking away," Megan said, detailing what happened.

"From the backseat [he] starts shooting me! I didn't get cut on no glass! Let me tell you why they saying that. There's a witness – when the police came… this did not happen at Kylie's house, this happened damn near back at the house I was staying at.

"The police come, I'm scared — the police [have been] killing Black people for no reason. They were really aggressive — you think I'm about to tell the police that we got a gun in the car?" she claimed.

Authorities say there has been no update in the investigation as yet. Tory has not responded to the claims made against him.
