Megan Thee Stallion has opened up about the argument which allegedly led to rapper Tory Lanez shooting her in the foot.

The 'Savage' singer has accused Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, of firing a gun at her following a house party in Hollywood Hills in July 2020.

Lanez was arrested at the time and charged with carrying a concealed firearm in a vehicle before being released on bail. In October 2020 he was charged with one felony count each of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, personal use of a firearm, and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle. The rapper has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

UNILAD has reached out to Lanez's legal team for comment.

Megan shared further details about the night in her first television interview addressing the alleged shooting with CBS, claiming she was leaving the party with Lanez and a friend from Houston when an argument began in the car.

"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... I never put my hands on anybody, I never raised my voice too loud... It shouldn't have got this crazy," she said.

The 27-year-old claimed the argument quickly escalated and turned violent, at which point Lanez allegedly fired the gun at her several times.

She recalled getting out of the car and said 'everything happens so fast', adding: "And all I hear is this man screaming. And he said, 'Dance, b***h.' And he started shooting. And I'm just like, 'Oh, my God.' Like, he shot a couple of times. And I was so scared."

Interviewer Gayle King asked Megan to clarify whether Lanez was 'in the car shooting from the car', to which she responded: "He is standing up over the window shooting. And I didn't even want to move. I didn't want to move too quick."

Megan said that at the time she didn't know if he was 'gonna shoot something that's, like, super important', adding: "I don't know if he could shoot me and kill me... I was really scared 'cause I had never been shot at before."

Earlier this month Lanez was taken into custody for violating court orders which prohibited him from contacting Megan or discussing any discovery in the case with outside parties. He was later released on bond.

The full interview with Megan and King airs today (25 April), while the shooting case is expected to go to trial in September.
