Megan Thee Stallion took to Instagram on Wednesday to share details about the gunshot wounds she sustained over the weekend.

Wanting to "set the record straight" on headlines that she called "inaccurate" – according to People, TMZ reported the Savage hitmaker was in the car with rapper Tory Lanez when he got arrested on a weapons charge on Sunday, and sustained a foot injury – the rapper, whose real name is Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, said a crime was in fact committed against her.

"I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me," she wrote on Instagram. "I was never arrested," she cleared up, "the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets."

She added: "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."


According to the report by TMZ, Megan was with Pete at a party. They appeared together on Instagram Live with Kylie Jenner. The party is thought to have have taken place at Kylie's Holmby Hills pad.

According to Sky News, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed Megan was with Tory on the night and a woman was taken to the hospital to be treated for a foot injury.
