LOS ANGELES — Rapper Megan Thee Stallion said Monday that she had gunshot wounds in both feet and gave new details about the shooting earlier this month that she called “the worst experience of my life” in an emotional online video.

“I was shot in both of my feet, and I had to get surgery to … get the bullets taken out, and it was super scary,” said the 25-year-old hip-hop star whose real name is Megan Pete, as she wiped away tears in the Instagram Live video.

About Stallion
A stallion is a male horse that has not been gelded (castrated).
Stallions follow the conformation and phenotype of their breed, but within that standard, the presence of hormones such as testosterone may give stallions a thicker, “cresty” neck, as well as a somewhat more muscular physique as compared to female horses, known as mares, and castrated males, called geldings.
Temperament varies widely based on genetics, and training, but because of their instincts as herd animals, they may be prone to aggressive behavior, particularly toward other stallions, and thus require careful management by knowledgeable handlers. However, with proper training and management, stallions are effective equine athletes at the highest levels of many disciplines, including horse racing, horse shows, and international Olympic competition.
The term “stallion” dates from the era of Henry VII, who passed a number of laws relating to the breeding and export of horses in an attempt to improve the British stock, under which it was forbidden to allow uncastrated male horses to be turned out in fields or on the commons; they had to be “kept within bounds and tied in stalls.” (The term “stallion” for an uncastrated male horse dates from this time; stallion = stalled one.) “Stallion” is also used to refer to males of other equids, including zebras and donkeys.

She did not name the person who shot her, as she also declined to do when she first said publicly that she was shot in a July 15 Instagram post.

Rapper Tory Lanez, who was with Pete, was arrested on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon on the morning of the July 12 incident in the Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles police said, and was released later that day after posting bail. Megan and Lanez had been in a car together after leaving a party.

Lanez, a 27-year-old Canadian rapper and singer whose legal name is Daystar Peterson, has not been charged in relation to the shooting. His representatives have not responded to requests for comment.

Police have said only that officers responded to a report of gunfire and a woman was treated for foot injuries They say they are aware of Pete’s Stallion’s subsequent remarks on her gunshot injuries, and say detectives are investigating.

Pete said in the Monday video that she was lucky that the bullets did not hit any bones or break any tendons, and thanked her late parents and grandmother. She expects to fully recover.

“I know my mama and my daddy, my granny had to be looking out for me with that one cause where the bullets hit at, it missed everything,” she said.

She lashed out at those she says have spread misinformation about the shooting, downplayed it or mocked her for it.

“It was nothing for y’all to start going and making up fake stories about,” she said. I didn’t put my hands on nobody. I didn’t deserve to get shot.”

Megan Thee Stallion has seen a major recent rise on the rap and pop music scene, topping the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart this year with her remix of “Savage” featuring Beyoncé. She won best female hip-hop artist at last month’s BET Awards and was named one of the AP’s Breakthrough Entertainers of the Year for 2019.
