Megan Thee Stallion shared details about a shooting that she endured earlier in the month, an experience she called, the worst experience of my life,” according to Fox News.
During an Instagram Live session, the musical star said, “I was shot in both of my feet, and I had to get surgery to … get the bullets taken out, and it was super scary.”
The 25-year old whose legal name is Megan Pete, wiped away tears while going into depth.
“I know my mama and my daddy, my granny had to be looking out for me with that one cause where the bullets hit at, it missed everything,” she said.

“It was nothing for y’all to start going and making up fake stories about,” the artist said. I didn’t put my hands on nobody. I didn’t deserve to get shot.”
She was referencing those who mocked her or made less of the shooting on social media.
During the video, she declined to name the person who shot her.
She said in the Monday video that she was lucky that the bullets did not hit any bones or break any tendons, and thanked her late parents and grandmother. She expects to fully recover.
