What was originally believed about Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez

Video footage of Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez and their interaction with Los Angeles cops hit the internet, leading many to believe both rappers were arrested. In the clip below, it looks like they handcuffed.

TMZ was the first to report that they were at a house party with Kylie Jenner when allegedly, an argument occurred.

Tory Lanez, Megan Thee Stallion, and another person left in an SUV that was supposedly implicated by witnesses as part of the dispute. Police located the vehicle in Hollywood Hills with all three people inside.

Tory Lanez was arrested on the spot while Megan Thee Stallion was said to have an injured foot.

It was widely reported that the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper was bleeding due to broken glass on the floor of the SUV. That was not the case, and it was later revealed police listed her as a victim.

Aware of the media stories circulating about the incident, Megan Thee Stallion posted a lengthy message on her Instagram account on July 15. She explained that police did not arrest her, but instead took her to the hospital for gunshot wounds.
