Megan is on IG Live and revealed she was shot in *both* feet and underwent surgery. She said the bullets missed all bones and tendons, luckily. Glad she's here to even talk about this. An amazing survival story.

After Megan was shot, she took to social media where she disclosed that the incident was an intentional attack against her.
Although she didn’t name the shooter, she was in the presence of Tory Lanez and her friend when it happened.
Her associate clarified to her followers that she was not behind the trigger, leaving Lanez as the only suspect.
Despite Megan stating that she was deliberately attacked, stories started to surface as to what motivated the shooting. Many uninformed people painted Megan—the woman without a deadly weapon—as the aggressor. This forced Megan to explain there was nothing she could have done to warrant being shot.
“It’s nothing to joke about. It was nothing for y’all to start going and making up fake stories about,” Megan said. “I didn’t put my hands on nobody. I didn’t deserve to get shot. I didn’t do shit.”
It was rumored that Lanez accidentally shot Megan. Yet not only did Megan explicitly say the attack was intentional, she was also shot more than once in both feet.
This would make the incident rap’s Magic Bullet Theory if Megan was able to sustain these wounds from a mere accidental discharge.
Megan has been on a wild ride toward stardom. No longer is she the fun-loving girl who would pull up to gas stations and stun the internet with her rhymes.
Now she’s a household name who’s in a position to dominate her second consecutive summer. This might be what every artist wants, but she had to climb a lot of mountains.
Meg has battled label issues and juggled the loss of her mother and grandmother before a gun was even raised on her. This is something she touched on when explaining how she’s focused on protecting herself and her energy.
“Imagine being 25 and you don’t have both of your parents. My momma was my best friend—I’m still not really over that. So you kind of try to fill your space with a bunch of people that you think are making you happy,” Megan said while choking back tears. “I thought I was ready to give good energy to other people and other people wasn’t ready to give good energy to me.”
Hopefully after deading any rumors, Megan can return to focusing on her recovery and healing from this traumatizing experience. She also posted a selfie on Instagram showing that negative energy can’t deter her.
