Taking to Instagram Live on August 21, Megan called out Lanez directly and accused his publicist and team of pushing another story to the press. Watch snippets of the broadcast, posted to Twitter and YouTube, below.
“Since y’all hoes so worried ’bout it,” Megan said, “yes, this n**** Tory shot me.”
She continued: “You shot me. And you got your publicist and your people going to these blogs lying and shit. Stop lying. Why lie? I don’t understand. I tried to keep the situation off the internet, but you dragging it. You really fucking dragging it.”
Megan’s Instagram Live broadcast comes shortly after reports by Billboard and the Los Angeles Times that the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office is considering filing charges against Lanez for allegedly shooting Megan.
Megan also addressed other rumours surrounding the incident: “Motherfuckers talking about I hit this n****. I never hit you. Motherfuckers like, ‘Oh she mad ’cause he was trying to fuck with Kylie’. No, I wasn’t. Like, you dry shot me. Like, everybody in the car – there’s only four motherfuckers in the car: me, you, my homegirl and your security.”
Megan explained that an argument had broken out in the car, and she chose to leave.
“Everybody in the car arguing. I’m in the front seat, this n**** in the back seat,” she said.
“I get out the car, I’m done arguing. I don’t wanna argue no more. I get out, I’m walking away. This n****, from outside the back seat of the car, start shooting me. You shot me!”
She also explained why there was initially speculation that she had hurt herself on glass.
“I ain’t get cut by no glass,” she said, “but let me tell you why they’re saying that… The people in the neighbourhood – there’s a witness – when the police came, because the neighbours called the police – this did not happen at Kylie’s house. This happened damn near back at the house I was staying at. I was just trying to get home. We were five minutes away from my spot.
“The police come and I’m scared. All this shit going on with the police. The police are shooting motherfuckers for anything. The police was literally killing Black people for no motherfucking reason. Soon as the police tell us all ‘Get out the motherfucking car’, the police is really aggressive.
“You think I’m bout to tell the police that we – n****s, us Black people – got a gun in the car?! You want me to tell them that we got a gun in the car so they can shoot all of us up? N****, I’m scared.”

Megan also further addressed those on the internet who claim she’s lying about her shooting.
“You want me to be a bad person so bad, and y’all motherfuckers wanna believe the lie before you believe the truth [too]. Stop trying to come on the internet and act like a Black woman – a grown ass Black woman – really got any reason to be lying on another grown ass Black man when all the shit fucked up going on in the world right now.”
“If you really want me to tell the truth,” she continued, “I tried to save this n****. Even though he shot me, I tried to spare him. And y’all motherfuckers is not sparing me. That’s crazy.”
Earlier this week, Megan briefly posted photos of her injury on social media before deleting it to prove that she wasn’t lying.
Tory Lanez was arrested on July 12 after police found a gun in his car. His team have since denied that the Canadian rapper has been deported from the US following the arrest. He is due to appear in court on October 13. He has previously denied shooting Megan The Stallion.
Three days after the incident, Megan posted a statement on Instagram revealing the nature of her injuries in order to “set the record straight” in light of inaccurate reporting. She opened up more about the injury over the course of the month, revealing that she was “real life hurt and traumatized” and calling it “the worst experience of my life”.
