Everything We Know About the Fight Involving Megan Thee Stallion & Tory Lanez (So Far)

An argument involving Tory Lanez and Megan Thee Stallion last weekend resulted in the first rapper behind bars after police arrested him for finding a gun in his car and the latter in the hospital after reports said Lanez allegedly shot her.

Earlier on Saturday night (July 11), Megan documented hanging poolside with Lanez and Kylie Jenner on her Instagram Live. Police later arrested Lanez for a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle last Sunday (July 12) when officers found the weapon in his SUV after receiving a disturbance call outside a Hollywood Hills residence around 4 a.m.

According to TMZ’s initial report, an argument ensued and someone fired shots in the air before taking off in the vehicle, where police later found the “Hot Girl” rapper and another woman.

TMZ reported Megan (real name Megan Pete) had a cut on her foot from the broken glass of the car, but she set the record straight last Wednesday (July 15) when she detailed suffering “multiple gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me.” The 25-year-old artist explained she was not arrested at the time but was driven to the hospital to undergo surgery to remove the bullets from her foot.

Following Megan’s Instagram post, her friend Kelsey Nicole, who was the other woman found in the car, came forward on her own social media to also set the record straight. “I want to clear up the the rumors that I shot Megan. I WASN’T the one with the gun and would never do something like that . However I was present,” she wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post.

Additionally, the Suga rapper’s producer Lil Ju Made The Beat posted a series of tweets about the incident, one of which directly targeted Lanez in a since-deleted post, “@torylanez count your f—ing days,” he wrote. The hitmaker later told his followers not to believe that The New Toronto 3 rapper “was defending her,” after a fan wrote a since-deleted account of her representatives saying Lanez was protecting the “Girls in the Hood” artist.

Page Six reported last Thursday (July 16) that Lanez allegedly shot her from inside the SUV “while Megan was outside trying to leave.” The source also claimed police were investigating the video footage. “This is a case of a man physically harming and abusing a woman,” read the report.

Lanez (real name Daystar Peterson) was released Thursday morning after posting a $35,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 13.

On Friday (July 17), Megan made another statement on social media after memes about her shooting circulated the internet. “Black women are so unprotected & we hold so many things in to protect the feelings of others w/o considering our own,” she tweeted. “It might be funny to y’all on the internet and just another messy topic for you to talk about but this is my real life and I’m real life hurt and traumatized.”
