Megan Thee Stallion has opened up a little more to her Instagram followers about how she is healing both physically and emotionally after being shot multiple times in the foot and having surgery to get the bullets removed. She said she felt "very betrayed" by a friend during an Instagram Live Q&A Thursday night, according to Entertainment Tonight, but is determined to be strong, upbeat, and move forward.
Megan previously spoke out when rumors circulated that she had been arrested. Instead, fellow performer Tory Lanez was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed weapon. TMZ reports he allegedly shot Megan. Megan explained police actually drove her to the hospital.

A fan asked Megan in her new Instagram Live how she felt after getting shot. "I felt, like, really crazy," she said. "I felt like, why did I get shot? Like, what did I do? It was insane. But shit was crazy, and I feel like some people think that it's funny, and I feel like some people think that it's a joke, and I feel like some people think that they're saying it to get to me. But I'm not ashamed of who I am, and I'm not ashamed of what I've been through, and I'm not scared to say anything about anything."
"It's not fun, bitch," she added. "I don't understand. I just felt very betrayed by a friend. I felt very betrayed by all my friends. I felt very shocked, very scared. But the one thing that y'all need to know about me is, I'm not a person who is able to be down for a long time. … I don't like to be victimized. I don't like to feel like, 'Oh my God, Megan, something's wrong.' I like to be upbeat. I like to be happy."
Megan previously addressed her experience in an emotional Instagram Live in late July. It was her first time speaking about what happened to her that night. “I was shot in both of my feet and I had to get surgery to get the shit taken out, to get the bullets taken out, and it was super scary,” she said, pausing and then crying. “Oh, I didn’t think I was gonna cry," she said, composing herself. "I had to get surgery. It was super scary. It was just the worst experience of my life, and it’s not funny, it’s nothing to joke about. It was nothing for y’all to go and be making fake stories about."
"I didn’t put my hands on nobody," she continued. "I didn’t deserve to get shot. I didn’t do shit. And thank God that the bullets didn’t touch bones. They didn’t break tendons. I know my mama and my daddy and granny had to be looking out for me, ’cause where the bullets hit at, they missed everything, but the motherf*ckers were in there."
She touched on what the incident taught her about choosing friends who reciprocate the good energy she gives them. "I’m so nice," she said. "Imagine being 25 and you don’t have both your parents. My mama was my best. I’m still really not over that so you like, you gotta try to fill like your space with a bunch of people who you think are making you happy," she started to cry again and then paused and composed herself. "I just feel like I was trying to—I was moving really fast, I was moving too fast," she said. "I wasn’t taking enough time for myself. I thought I was ready to be around a bunch of motherf*ckers. I thought I was ready to be—y’know, I thought I was ready to give good energy to other people, but other people weren’t ready to give good energy to me. But I definitely had to sit my ass down and pray on it. And I do feel a lot better and thank god for the people I have around me who are actually here for me and are actually my friends…[people] who wouldn’t make up stories about me to save face."
Megan ended that Instagram Live video by telling her fans that she is focused on her future now and moving past the incident: "I just want y’all to know a bitch is alive and well and strong as f*ck and you know, I’m ready to get back to regular programming with my own hot girl shit."
