Inside Megan Fox's Relationship With Machine Gun Kelly

Since they first connected in 2020, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly's relationship has given their fans plenty of heartfelt moments. But, naturally, their Hollywood romance hasn't always been smooth sailing. Even the confirmation of their affair wasn't official until June of 2020, when MGK addressed what fans and eagle-eyed members of the press already speculated by posting a lyric from one of his songs and saying his love life had "imitated art."

Since then, the couple has drawn plenty of attention for their unapologetic PDA, their stylish coordinated looks, and their tendency to engage in darker antics (like their obsession with blood rituals), the latter of which has left plenty of people talking.

After treating their fans to lots of intimate details about their love life, with various interviews and appearances, the couple once again surprised their followers in January 2022 when they announced their engagement to the world. Still, even after sharing the happy news, MGK managed to spark controversy after stating in an interview that the design for Fox's engagement ring comes with an unusual feature. But, of course, having a taste for the unconventional likely means there won't be any shortage of shocking or ultra-steamy moments from these two lovebirds. Follow along as we explore the relationship that is Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly.

Megan Fox and MGK met on an indie film set in 2020

Who wouldn't want to know all the dark and dirty details of Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly's passion-filled romance? In a joint interview with GQ, the actor and the rapper offered a first-hand look at their relationship, which included matching ink, dinner in Soho, and a shared love for movies like "The Lost Boys" and "True Romance."

During their talk, Fox and MGK said they officially met in 2020 while on set for the action film "Midnight in the Switchgrass." However, the couple admitted they'd been introduced to one another years before at a GQ party in Los Angeles. Though both agree they don't remember seeing the other's face, Fox states that she recalls seeing "this tall, blonde, ghostly creature." Their first words to one another were equally bizarre, yet fitting, to the couple's preference for strangeness, with Fox telling her now-fiancé, "You smell like weed," which earned the reply, "I am weed."

Later, when the pair met up on the set of their film, both recalled that their initial courtship involved MGK texting Fox the dirty lines from his character's dialogue along with his first words to her, "I am weed." The actress says she found the messages charming, responding to MGK by saying their interactions were "how every fairy tale begins" (per GQ).

She starred in MGK's Bloody Valentine video

The couple that works together stays together — at least, it certainly seems that way for Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly. In addition to starring in Randall Emmett's crime flick, the "Jennifer's Body" actor also appeared in the music video for MGK's "Bloody Valentine." In the video, Fox stars as MGK's domineering girlfriend and, at one point, even puts her bare feet on his face. According to Cinema Blend, Fox's presence in the video wasn't just a shock for viewers but also for the couple's former director, who told the outlet that MGK called him before the video's release to share the news. "He's like, 'Megan's in it.' "And I was like, 'Megan who?' And he's like, 'Megan Fox, your star,'" shared the director.

Of course, even though it came as a surprise to others, MGK clearly has no regrets about putting his partner in the song's visuals. During an interview with Teen Vogue to look back at his old work and discuss his creative process, the "Till I Die" rapper said that "Bloody Valentine" is probably his "favorite video."

Additionally, MGK offered up some personal details. "I think Megan has the most beautiful feet that exist," he admitted in reference to their appearance. MGK added that his future wife was well aware of his admiration, telling the magazine that Fox had gotten a pedicure after anticipating that he would ask her (and her freshly-painted toes) to appear in the video.

The couple gushes about their romance

While fans of the pair already know that MGK and Megan Fox aren't shy about sharing details about their romance, that doesn't mean they don't still love to hear the couple gush about one another. Back in 2020, MGK truly let it all out in an interview when he told Howard Stern that Fox's love gave him a whole new take on romance. While speaking about the couple's special connection, the musical artist told the host that their romance was truly love at first sight, saying, "I didn't know what that was until me and her made eye contact." Additionally, MGK remarked that, out of all his romantic relationships, the one he shares with Fox is unlike anything he'd experienced before.

Additionally, Fox shared a similar sentiment during a phone interview with Nylon, calling their love a "once in a lifetime thing." The actor stressed that their bond is intense, comparing their "merging" to "being in love with a tsunami or a forest fire." She also spoke about MGK's "bad boy" image, which she believes is a reflection of the rapper's childhood struggles and a mechanism for covering up his inner self from everyone, including himself. Still, MGK's physical appearance had no effect on how Fox saw her future husband when she met him. "I looked into his eyes [and] I felt the most pristine, most gentle, most pure spirit," she described to Nylon.

Megan Fox and MGK have some dark obsessions

With a lifestyle that screams Hollywood vampires, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly certainly aren't shy about embracing their darker side. So, naturally, it should have come as no surprise when MGK shared a Valentine's Day message on Instagram he captioned "i[sic] wear your blood around my neck" along with a series of photos, one of which seemed to be a necklace containing a drop of Fox's blood. His post definitely caused a stir, considering that, although plenty of couples enjoy sharing a part of themselves with their significant other, most aren't doing so literally.

Later, while on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," the musician revealed the story behind his blood necklace. He explained that the jewelry was a sort of memento, since, at the time, Fox was leaving town to film a movie, and, unfortunately, MGK had to stay behind. "Some people give, like, a handkerchief to their partner or whatever. She gave me her DNA." The rapper went on to tell DeGeneres that, for their second date, he and Fox went swimming with sharks in Bora Bora. When asked to clarify, MGK said the couple was not in a cage and that they swam freely with the predatory creatures. "There was nobody else but me and her," he described the experience.

Megan Fox has plenty of nicknames for MGK

His fans know him as Machine Gun Kelly, but Megan Fox has plenty of other pet names for her partner, like cookie, buddha, and booby, at least, according to Fox News. During an interview with Fox to talk about her movie "Till Death," the actor stated she had plenty of nicknames for her partner while listing the ones mentioned above. Of course, this comes as no surprise to their fans, considering the couple has always been super affectionate with one another.

However, Fox's most notable reference to her partner came during an interview with Elle, in which the star referred to MGK as her "twin flame." In clarifying her statement, Fox explained that she believes the couple is made up of "two halves of the same soul." Fox also told the outlet that she consulted their astrological birth charts after only a few days of working together. According to Fox, she knew that MGK was the other half of her soul "right away."

The couple loves to coordinate

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly are clearly fans of couple coordinating. In late 2021, when the pair went to an event to celebrate the musician's nail polish line, People reported that they managed to match everything, from their black suits to their pink manicures, the latter of which were linked together by a chain connecting to the other's pinky finger. Still, this was far from the first time the duo coordinated their look, with the media source noting that Fox and MGK previously showed off matching extra-long manicures at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

Additionally, the pair's love for matching manicures also made an appearance for an extra important life event. In an Instagram post showing off Fox's engagement ring, the actor and musical artist notably sported complementing chrome manicures from Nails of LA.

But, of course, this couple is also known to show their passion for one another with extreme gestures, which they reaffirmed when they took their coordination to the next level by giving each other matching tattoos. According to LADbible, their matching messages "The darkest fairytale" references "one of the first text messages we ever sent each other." During the GQ interview, when they initially gave one another their ink, the couple stated that they originally wanted to get the messages in the same place on their inner arm. However, because MGK is already heavily tattooed, his ended up being on his hip instead.

This is one couple that's not shy with PDA

When it comes to packing on the PDA, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly are more than happy to share the love no matter who's watching. Memorably, the two treated their fans to an intimate look at MGK's black painted tongue while sharing an open-mouthed kiss at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards. Fox's hand is also noticeably gripping MGK's crotch, making it clear that these two are always ready for some physical affection whenever the mood strikes. But, of course, the Billboard Music Awards is not the only public event where the pair chose to pack on the PDA. MGK has also made his fondness for Fox's backside very clear at the iHeartRadio Music Awards and the MTV VMAs by grabbing the actor's butt on both occasions.

Even during public outings, the couple truly can't seem to keep their hands off each other, so it definitely comes as no surprise that even their interviews maintain a steady level of lust. One such memorable comment comes from the duo's infamous GQ write-up, during which the rapper somehow managed to make something as simple as a kiss sound incredibly TMI. "Even our first kiss, she wouldn't kiss me. We just put our lips right in front of each other and breathed each other's breath and then she just left," he described.

The two got engaged in 2022

After a romance filled with plenty of wild moments, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly surprised their followers when they officially announced their engagement. Ever generous with the details, the actor even shared footage of the proposal on Instagram along with this heartfelt caption: "In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree. We asked for magic." The star went on to note all the hard work that both put into their relationship and the good times as well. Fox finished off with a sentence truly reflective of the couple's love for dark romance by saying, "and then we drank each other's blood."

Similarly, MGK showed off Fox's new ring on Instagram with a video of his own, echoing his future wife's sentiment and offering some interesting details about the significance of the double stones. "i[sic] know tradition is one ring, but i[sic] designed it with Stephen Webster to be two," said the rapper. He went on to explain that these are the couple's birthstones, the emerald being Fox's and the diamond being MGK's. He finished by recalling one of the actor's formerly stated beliefs about the couple's relationship, saying the stones "draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love."

Megan Fox's engagement ring has sparked debate

While plenty of their followers were excited to hear that Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly are going to tie the knot, the couple still managed to draw some criticism after revealing a unique feature of Fox's engagement ring. During a joint interview with Vogue, MGK stated that the ring was designed to hurt if the actor tried to take it off. "The bands are actually thorns," said the rapper. "So if she tries to take it off, it hurts." When the interviewer reacted with a simple "very nice," MGK responded by saying, "Love is pain."

Despite the couple's fondness for a dark and unconventional romance, the rapper's words still left some questioning if the ring's design reflected a possibly toxic relationship. In an article discussing the topic, BuzzFeed noted some of the feedback from their own site, including a user who called the design "possessive and controlling." Similarly, they also shared a tweet from writer and producer Kim Caramele, who wrote that MGK's statement that "love is pain" is "a damaging message that allows abuse [and] toxicity to be misinterpreted for love." But, of course, plenty of fans argued it's an issue of consent and that Fox was likely on board with the idea, considering the couple's history.

Megan Fox and MGK are blending their families

Though both Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly have children from previous relationships, it doesn't look like the couple will face any issues when it comes to blending their families. While MGK has a daughter named Casie with his ex, Emma Cannon, Fox has three boys, Noah, Bodhi, and Journey, with ex-husband Brian Austin Green.

According to a source who spoke to Life & Style, the children of the actor and the daughter of the musician "get along great." The insider added that this is a big deal for the couple while noting that the transition towards marriage has been smooth. "Her kids Bodhi, Journey and Noah think he's super cool, and MGK's daughter, Casie, simply adores Megan and her kids." The couple has even been spotted taking family vacations together with their children, like during their 2021 trip to Greece, where Fox, MGK, and the kids are all seen shopping together.
