Social media can be a battlefield for celebrity relationships. Sometimes we can’t help but grab some popcorn and enjoy the entertaining chaos. So let’s dive into the whirlwind romance and online drama of Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox, a relationship that has had us hitting refresh on our feeds like it’s our full-time job!
Their Lives before Each Other
Let’s begin the story with Megan Fox, the stunning Transformers star, who had her fair share of electric connections off-screen! Can we all just take a moment to taste the sparks flying between her and her on-again, off-again beau, Brian Austin Green?
Their romantic chronicles were like thrilling rollercoasters – with all the ups, downs, and twists you could imagine. Being married to Brian Austin Green in 2010, they had three plus one beautiful children: Noah Shannon (2012), Bodhi Ransom (2014), Journey River (2016), and Kassius, Green’s child from a previous relationship (2002).
How about Colson Baker a.k.a. Machine Gun Kelly a.k.a. MGK? He was quite the Casanova, stealing hearts left and right, all while strumming his guitar and rapping his heart out. His love life was as vibrant as his music, with relationships that ranged from a fling with Amber Rose to whispers of a romance with Halsey, the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter.
And who can forget his passionate relationship with fitness model Sommer Ray, with whom he’d share funny social media moments that had fans aww-struck?
Megan, MGK, and Their Lives on Social Media
Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox seemed to be two peas in very different pods, so you might want to know why they became twin flames and eventually set the Internet ablaze with their whirlwind romance.
Their romance reportedly began when they met on Midnight in the Switchgrass. The crime thriller tanked at the box office, but it was a hit for both as it led to more frequent meetings.
The rumor only became louder when Fox and Green split and she and MGK looked cozier in the latter’s music videos, particularly “Bloody Valentine,” released in March 2020.
After a joint interview in a few months, it was madness on Instagram and Twitter, with cringe-worthy captions like “Waited for eternity to find you again” and news of blood-drinking rituals, matching tattoos, clothing coordination, and comparisons of loving MGK to being in love with a forest fire or a tsunami.
So, it might not be surprising that both were already engaged within two years, with Fox flaunting her diamond-emerald engagement ring.
The Demise of the Romance
But it seems their love died as fast as it seemed to have bloomed. In half a year since the proposal, the hush-hush of their split resonated in the pages of Hollywood tabloids.
In June, a video of MGK’s bloodied hand after breaking a glass (and Fox’s concerned look) during a New York afterparty circulated.
In between fewer posts about each other on Instagram, Fox scrubbed photos and eventually deleted her account a day after being spotted looking hot and heavy with MGK during the year’s Superbowl.
From then on, both seemed to have gone on almost radio silence, which leaves us wondering, are they over? If they are, are they getting back together?
What the Experts Are Saying
Right now, the consensus is no. “They would need to have a significant breakthrough to make things work. It’s all up in the air right now,” according to US Weekly. And Fox seemed to be trying to move on, appearing in the recent Oscars afterparty without her ring. Meanwhile, the Houston Chronicle shared that MGK could be thinking of moving to Texas. Whether that was said in jest, we’ll know soon.
Until then, we can all proceed to other Hollywood stories and leave these two be.
