Right from the start, we'd like to make it clear that no one at The Hollywood Gossip, or anywhere else for that matter, is accusing Kylie Jenner of engaging in gun play or being involved in criminal activity of any kind.
But the fact remains that Kylie was in the presence of Megan Thee Stallion when the rapper was shot early Sunday morning.
The circumstances surrounding Megan's shooting remain mysterious.
The wildly popular artist shocked fans this week when she revealed that she had been hospitalized after sustaining serious injuries.
"On Sunday morning, I suffered gunshot wounds, as a result of a crime that was committed against me and done with the intention to physically harm me," the rapper tweeted.
"I was never arrested, the police officers drove me to the hospital where I underwent surgery to remove the bullets."
Little is known, officially, about the events leading up to the shooting.
Social media posts confirm that Megan and rapper Tony Lanez - who was arrested the same night - were partying at a house in the Hollywood Hills just hours before Megan was attacked.
Now, fans on social media are wondering about Kylie's role in all this.
So far, the 22-year-old has remained silent about the incident.
And some celebrity gossip readers are demanding answers.
"Nobody finds it weird she got shot after leaving Kylies house?" one fan asked on Twitter, according to the Blast.
"So Megan Thee Stallion got shot, tory got his ass arrested and kylie just free and in the wild?? Sum not right."
Other Megan fans referenced the infamous "Kardashian curse" in their theories about what might have transpired that fateful night.
"All I know is this the final straw for me with the Kardashian Curse ain’t nobody can tell me that shit ain’t real," tweeted one person.
"Tory and Megan hung out with Kylie ONCE now Tory in Jail and Megan got bullet holes in her feet? Yeah aight."
"All I know is Megan has been unproblematic and never in trouble," another added.
"The one time she hangs wit Kylie Jenner she gets shot in the foot & we all know the Kardashian curse is REAL.
Look ... about the curse. Or Kurse, if you want to be cute.
It's not real. Just like the Glee curse, it does not exist.
Yes, certain celebrities have experienced some weird s--t by association with the Kardashian-Jenner orbit.
But that's just life. Sometimes weird s--t happens. Particularly in the land of reality stars and influencers.
It's important to note just how little we know for sure.
No one has confirmed that the house party was indeed at the $36 million mansion Kylie recently purchased in the area.
Also, Kylie might have no choice but to remain quiet about the shooting, as she's likely part of an active investigation.
Currently, there's no reason to believe that Kylie even witnessed the shooting, much less had anything to do with it.
But police have likely encouraged all parties who had any contact with the victim that night to remain silent.
In case, in the off chance, that anyone is called upon to testify later, this is standard operating procedure.
Since Kylie is either as confused as anyone else as to what happened, and/or likely being silenced by a gag order, allow us to clarify something, once more, on her behalf:
The Kardashian curse is a dumb concept and everyone should stop blaming everything or anything on bogus conspiracy theory BS.
There, we feel better already!
