The 'Savage' rapper accused Lanez of shooting her in the foot following an altercation in a vehicle after a party hosted at Kylie Jenner's house.
What really happened between Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez?
On the evening of Saturday 11th July, 2020, Megan filmed herself hanging out poolside with Kylie Jenner at her Holmby Hills compound.
In the early hours, police responded to shots being fired in the Hollywood Hills area following an argument that had taken place inside a vehicle.
Lanez was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and released on bail later that morning. Police later confirmed that a victim was taken to hospital to receive treatment for a foot injury.
Megan later took to Instagram Live identify Lanez as her shooter, which was heavily rumoured at the time. She also shared graphic images of her injured foot.
"You shot me, and you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs, lying and sh*t," Megan said. "Stop lying. Why lie? I don't understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you're dragging it."
On his album DAYSTAR, Lanez accused Megan of trying to frame him. "Girl, you had the nerve to write that statement on that affidavit, knowing I ain't do it but I'm coming at my truest," he raps.
In mid-November, Lanez pled not guilty in the shooting case.
In April 2022, Megan Thee Stallion appeared on CBS Morning for an interview with Gayle King. The star opened up about the tragic night, where she was allegedly shot by Tory Lanez. During the show, a text message from July 2020 from Meg's friend Kelsey to Meg's security guard reads "Tory shot Meg".
The rapstress admitted that she told police she had glass in her foot to "protect" everyone.
“The George Floyd incident had just happened,” she said. “The police are definitely very much shoot first, ask questions after. So I’m like, it’s a hot gun in the car, I’m bleeding, I’ve been shot. They’re about to kill somebody. Something bad is about to happen.”
Due to this, Megan said, she first told police she had gotten injuries from stepping on glass. “I didn’t want them to kill any of us, or shoot any of us,” she said.
Was Megan Thee Stallion dating Tory Lanez?
During Megan Thee Station's interview on CBS Morning with Gayle King, Megan revealed that she and Tory were "close" friends as they had initially bonded over the fact their parents died.
When King asked if the relationship was "intimate", Meg replied: “I didn’t have a sexual relationship with Tory".
Megan and Tory initially raised eyebrows back in April after appearing to flout lockdown rules amid the COVID-19 pandemic to hang out together, prompting romance rumours.
The pair were spotted making TikToks and drinking together, but some fans were left furious as they were clearly not following social distancing guidelines. Others began commenting on their rumoured relationship and saying they looked "cute together".
Neither party confirmed whether they were dating or not, with Megan often confirming that she is in fact single. She was linked to G-Eazy back in February, but she denied anything was going on romantically.
Surprisingly, three months after the shooting incident took place, Lanez hopped on Instagram Live and said he still considered Megan "a friend" despite his felony charge.
"I don’t ever wanna come off like I’m here to bash this girl or I’m here to talk down about this girl or ever be at a place where, like, I’m disrespecting her, because to me, as a person, she’s still my friend,' he said.
"No matter what; even if she doesn’t look at me like that - I look at her like she’s still my friend."
In apparent response to Tory's comments, Megan tweeted, "This n***** genuinely crazy".
A trail date is set for September.
