According to TMZ, the shooting is being investigated as assault with a deadly weapon. Lanez allegedly shot Megan in the foot during an argument inside a chauffeured SUV. Sources allege that the 27-year-old recording artist claims the violent incident was accidental.
Megan hasn’t specified who shot her, but the Houston native made it clear that she was intentionally targeted.
Lanez was arrested for having a concealed weapon, and released after posting bond. Meg apparently unfollowed the Canadian rapper on Instagram but has remained mum about the details of the incident. She did however tweet a message seemingly addressing some of the internet reactions to the shooting.
“Black woman are so unprotected & we hold so many things in to protect the feelings of others [without] considering our own,” she tweeted on Friday (July 17). “It might be funny to ya’ll 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.”
