Megan Thee Stallion has claimed fellow rapper Tory Lanez shot her in both feet after a party in the Hollywood Hills.
The incident happened on 12 July, but the 25-year-old – whose real name is Megan Pete – has refused to name the person allegedly responsible until now.
Canadian artist Lanez – whose legal name is Daystar Peterson – was arrested on suspicion of possession of a concealed weapon on the morning of the shooting but has not been charged with any crime.
Speaking in an Instagram Live video on Thursday night, a visibly upset Meghan told fans: “Yes … Tory shot me. You shot me and you got your publicist and people to these blogs lying. Stop lying!”
Lanez, 28, is yet to comment publicly on the accusation.
Megan said she did not tell Los Angeles police the details of the shooting because she was afraid for her safety and feared legal repercussions.
She explained: “I didn’t tell the police nothing because I didn’t want us to get in no more trouble.”
Officers attended the incident at the time, and in a previous Instagram post she credited police with driving her to hospital where she underwent surgery to remove the bullets.
Police and prosecutors say the case remains under investigation.
Describing the evening, she said an argument broke out while she was sharing a ride in an SUV with Peterson and other people.
She said Peterson shot her when she tried to walk away and denied rumours she had hit him while in the vehicle.
She first revealed she had been shot on the week of the incident, and has revealed further details on social media since.
At the time, she said she was “extremely grateful to be alive” following the “traumatic night” but that she was “expected to make a full recovery”.
She said the reason she was posting about the incident was because “it was important to clarify the details”.
She called the resulting surgery “the worst experience of my life,” saying it was “super scary” and that she felt blessed that the gunfire hit her where it did.
In an earlier post she said was aimed to stop false rumours spreading, she said: “I got hit at the back of my feet because when I got shot I was walking away facing the back.
“Why would I lie abt getting shot? Why are y’all so upset that I don’t wanna be in the bed sad? Why y’all upset that I can walk? I got my stitches out my feet like 2 weeks ago and I was ready to go celebrate WAP going number1…”
On the same day Megan posted the Instagram video, she also tweeted, “Lie one more time and ima quit sparing you.”

Megan is also nominated for artist of the year at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, which take place at the end of August.
