Did Megan Thee Stallion LIE about foot injury caused by Tory Lanez? New post muddies claims
The ongoing Megan Thee Stallion vs Tory Lanez case got a bizarre twist on Thursday when social media was abuzz with rumors that a doctor had confirmed that the rapper's foot injury was due to stepping on glass, and a bullet. The rumour began after a screenshot of a police report from the night of the alleged shooting went viral. The shooting incident reportedly took place in July 2020 owing to an altercation between Megan and Lanez during Kylie Jenner's party at her Hollywood Hills mansion.
However, celebrity blogger KenBarbie claimed the viral image that is making the rounds on social media is not the final medical report but is actually a screenshot from an initial LAPD report where Megan appeared to withhold information from officials about how she sustained her injuries. She first told authorities she was “walking at a party and heard a loud noise and ran away,” the medical report states, adding that she thought she had “stepped on glass.” However, in an Instagram post that has since been deleted, Megan said she was a victim of 'shooting'.
Y’all want Megan to be a liar so bad.— KenBarbie™ (@itsKenBarbie) May 11, 2022
What’s going around is the initial police report.. NOT a medical report. It’s BEEN said she told police she stepped on glass initially; that’s not new. It wasn't until later the doctor confirmed/told her she had bullet fragments in her foot. pic.twitter.com/k1e3Gsn40o
Later, Megan claimed that Lanez shot her in the foot after a dispute broke between the two. Lanez, on the other hand, claimed that he did not shoot her. However, he was charged with two counts of felony, one for assault with a semiautomatic firearm and another for carrying a loaded, unregistered weapon and inflicting great bodily injury personally.
The medical report obtained by PageSix notes that Megan was “alert,” “oriented” and “breathing comfortably” at the time of her admission. She had a visible “small wound ” to her posterior ankle with “no active bleeding” prior to a more in-depth evaluation.
According to the report, the emergency department noted that Megan was asked “repeatedly” about her injuries, but she stated that she “never heard a gunshot, and initially did not even believe that there were bullets present.”
However, initial X-ray reports showed gunshot fragments in Megan's ankles. The officers who examined the shooting scene also revealed that they found four bullet casings, jewelry, and one acrylic nail.
Speaking to CBS Mornings’ Gayle King on April 24, Megan said: “It was an argument because I was ready to go and everybody else wasn’t ready to go. But that’s, like, normal friend stuff. We fuss about silly stuff all the time. But I never put my hands on anybody. I never raised my voice too loud. Like, this was one of them times where it was, like, it shouldn’t have got this crazy.”
However, despite the rumour being debunked, social media users were blasting the rapper for accusing Lanez of shotting her foot. One said, "Megan needs to be canceIed after this .. how you gonna Tell a Iie that big"

One user said, "The doctor didn’t make a public statement. He’s required by law to tell the police what he treated the patient for. The police report just got leaked that’s all no foul here."
