Tory Lanez allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion inside an SUV during an argument

Rapper Megan Thee Stallion arrives at the 2019 American Music Awards held at Microsoft Theatre L.A. Live on November 24, 2019 in Los Angeles, California, United States.

This situation with Megan Thee Stallion getting shot is even sadder and weirder than I initially thought. It was unclear what led up to the incident, which took place in the early hours of Sunday morning. We knew that Megan was out partying with friends in the Hollywood Hills and Holmby Hills. We knew that Trey Lanez was riding around with a concealed weapon, a weapon the cops would later find and for which they would arrest him. We also knew that there was some kind of argument, which is the reason why someone called the cops on this group of people. Now we’re starting to get some clarity on what exactly the “fight” might have been and when Megan got shot. It’s horrible.

Tory Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, was the person who allegedly shot Megan Thee Stallion following a dispute inside his vehicle Sunday morning, Page Six has learned.

“Tory fired the shots from within the vehicle while Megan was outside trying to leave,” a source exclusively told us on Thursday. “There is video and the police are investigating. This is a case of a man physically harming and abusing a woman.” A spokesperson for LAPD would not confirm whether there was video submitted to the investigation, adding that any videos would “not be released until the case goes to court in order to protect the integrity of the case.”

“The detectives are seeking information regarding the shooting involving Daystar Peterson, and the investigation is still ongoing. I’m not privileged to what the detectives have right now,” the spokesperson added. Police would not say whether Lanez is a suspect. The rapper posted $35,000 bail and was released at 10:05 a.m. He is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 13.

Megan’s best friend Kelsey Nicole, who was also in the vehicle, denied that she was the one who shot Megan. “I WASN’T the one with the gun and would never do something like that,” she wrote on social media, in screenshots obtained by The Shade Room. “However I was present.”

TMZ frankly has better sources in the LAPD, but TMZ also has a long history of taking the side of abusers and toxic men, so I went to TMZ’s coverage out of curiosity, just to see how they were reporting it. They do confirm that Lanez “allegedly opened fire on Meghan…after arguing with her and her friend.” Megan, Tory, Kelsy Nicole and others were in a larger group that began to leave a Hollywood Hills party together, and that’s when the argument started, but they all still left in the same SUV together. And then Lanez opened fire “from inside the vehicle and allegedly hit Meg in the feet twice.” TMZ also plays games with whether Megan has told the LAPD that Tory shot her, or if she’s cooperating with the police at all. We don’t know.

It’s so hard to believe that Megan was shot by someone she considered a friend, that this dumbass Tory Lanez opened fire in a moving SUV, or that all of this happened when people are supposed to be social distancing! Poor Megan.

    I’m still confused.

  2. Ellen Olenska says:

    “ Hollywood party” is the part that boggles the mind.

    • MaryContrary says:

      Jesus-I was thinking the same thing. Whyyyyy?????

    • OnceUponA says:

      Exactly. Why the f**k don’t people get that just getting together in groups results in infection and death on a massive scale????

      Viruses don’t give a cr@p how young, hot or rich you are.

  3. CROWHOOD says:

    I love her music and her overall but I have been beyond disappointed to see how many people she has spent time with this “quarantine”, I had To unfollow.

    • Nina Simone says:

      Same. I’ve been uncomfortable with her actions this quarantine and the fact that she’s always hanging out with one random after the other. But I also remembered she recently lost her mother AND her grandmother, right after that she got famous. So there’s clearly some pain she’s trying to mask with all this partying. I just joe she’s learned her lesson. She could have been killed! Wow

    • CherryL says:

      Is there quarantine in LA? I genuinly don’t know. I live in Europe and here we don’t hve any rules other than wearing a mask in supermarkets and public transport.

      • Kkat says:

        Grocery stores, home goods, home repair stores are the only ones open. So Walmart, target, food stores, home depot, ect.
        Restaurants you can only eat outside social distanced. Schools are closed this fall only open for distance learning.
        Masks are mandatory in businesses.
        Some cities have mandatory masks outside.
        A lot are quarantining. I personally just go to the store maybe once a week and pick up prescriptions and food, or drive through (masked) for take out

        That’s California for the most part

  4. Stacy Dresden says:

    I cannot believe he did this! Absolutely idiotic!

    • Jensies says:

      My personal guess is that there was alcohol involved and that he was really coked out and it escalated. Which does not make it okay, at all. This is domestic violence, pure and simple. But I bet cocaine was involved.

  5. Solace says:

    Why are these ppl partying during a pandemic..
    Why? WHYY 🤧
    I haven’t stepped out for months. This is not the time for socializing ..its associated risks and drama.

    • ME says:

      Rich celebs think they are immune. I mean so many of them are going to parties/having parties, or going on vacations out of the country. It’s so stupid.

  6. BlueSky says:

    The sad part is that Megan will not be treated as the victim. There will be an implication that she “provoked” him. Rap is so rampant and unapologetic in its toxic masculinity. He will get more sympathy because the narrative will be how BM are treated by the justice system. I wouldn’t be surprised if most of these (male) rappers will discourage her from cooperating with the police and “protect” the man who wouldn’t show you the same courtesy.

    • Christina says:

      From what I read last night, this is already happening. Witnesses don’t want to provide testimony to police.

      You have Megan, the victim, Lanez, the suspect, and her best friend, the other woman in a bikini, is the other witness. The last witness In the car would be Lanez’ driver. If she was shot trying to exit the SUV outside of the party, the party goers who may have been near the car are also witnesses.

      Domestic violence against Black women is many times complicated by what you point out, Blue Sky, that Black men deserve protection from a system already slanted against them. Poor Megan, to have to go through this at the beginning of her career. I do feel that she is in a lot of pain because of the loss of her mom and grandmother, the people who keep you grounded and give unconditional love if you are lucky enough to have close family, and many fans in the rap community will blame her, just like Dee Barnes when Dr. Dre attacked her, or Rihanna when she was beaten and left unconscious in a car by Chris Brown.

      • osito says:

        Yes to all of this Christina and Bluesky. Drew Dixon was just on the Fanti podcast discussing this issue as it relates to her assault at the hands of Russell Simmons and the documentary about that assault and his other victims/survivors. I highly recommend giving it a listen. I definitely want to support the documentary as well, but I don’t have HBO Max.

  7. Leigh says:

    I’m surprised to see most of the comments bashing her for being out with no mention of how horrible it is that she was SHOT by a “friend”.

    • TIFFANY says:

      THANK YOU !!!

      Party or at home, she was the victim of gun violence. Period.

      Sure makes me wonder what the comments would be if Megan was white.

      And this jagoff shot her in the feet. The same feet needed as part of her career.

      He is garbage. Period.

    • Green Desert says:

      Thank you. There are A LOT of regular people who have stopped social distancing. Look around your communities, people. I’m not defending that and I’m not participating in it.. But Jesus, this woman was shot.

  8. Solace says:

    Two issues can exist together.

    He should face charges for the crime. She (with the entire group) flouted social distancing rules.

  9. Tiff says:

    What is going on?!? Protect Meg!!!

    • Watson says:

      Agreed. Social distancing or not she was with someone who shot her. Protect Meg!!!!! No one deserves this!!!

      Very much expecting all the mysoginists to come out and slam her now and say she provoked him now. Reminds me of the time Chris brown beat rihanna in a car and people waved domestic violence away like she deserved it.

  10. Appalachian says:

    What in the world?? This is awful. She outshines this loser any day of the week. I hope the nerves in her foot are ok. I hate that she was walking away and he did this! How many women did the same and were killed by some loser and his temper? I’m sure she’s nerve wracked.

  11. Sayrah says:

    Pulling a gun out in a car and firing it in during an argument? Sounds like he needs a prison sentence. That’s horrifying.

  12. lucy2 says:

    That’s horrible. Thank goodness no one was killed, and I hope she will be ok.

    Also, stay home! The pandemic is still raging here.

  13. detritus says:

    Megan doesn’t deserve this nonsense. I hope she heals quickly and well.

    Tighten up those gun laws. This man obviously should not have had access to fire arms

  14. TheOriginalMia says:

    He could have killed her. Doesn’t matter if he was shooting at the ground. Bullets ricochet. Bullets kill. I hope Megan heals and is able to resume her career pain free.

  15. Lisa says:

    Meg needs to be more selective of her circle.

  16. Nina Simone says:

    Insane story! I’m so speechless

  17. Sof says:

    This is horrifying, what if he had killed her or her friend? who shoots people in the middle of an argument?

    • ME says:

      An insane person that’s who. Good thing she’ll be ok but wow that’s a crazy story.

  18. Vanessa says:

    Why I’m not surprised That are comments placing the blame on Meghan for being a victim of violence she is a victim. She didn’t do nothing wrong people are still going out if they were victim of a crime would any of you say it’s their fault . The way society treats black woman when their victim of abuse compare to a white woman is shameful and disgusting. It doesn’t matter that Meghan went out she doesn’t deserve to be victim of gun violence by hand of someone she probably considers a friend .

  19. Atti says:

    Poor Stallion. Who the hell shoots someone over an oral argument. For words. Well, besides the police. I hope she doesnt have any permanent handicap from his.

  20. L says:

    Oh my this is horrific.. poor girl.. Where is the sympathy? So many judging comments… if this happened to Reese Witherspoon ya’ll would be screaming

  21. Bread and Circuses says:

    I hope she’s safe, she heals well, and she protects herself and society from whoever shot her.

    I also think she looks utterly amazing in that red dress, but my gosh, the tortuous things being done to her bosom are incredibly distracting.

  22. Joanna says:

    I’m glad she’s ok.

  23. CherryL says:

    That’s just horrible. Is she okay? Are the wounds bad? Will she recover completely?
