Instagram Drama Implies Troubling Developments With Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly
All signs point to discord in the private lives of actress Megan Fox and musician Machine Gun Kelly. The two have been dating since mid-2020 and were engaged in January 2022.
The evidence of tumult is this: Fox has deleted all images of him off her Instagram, and, late Saturday/early Sunday, uploaded a carousel of images of herself in what most would consider a seductive outfit (though shot in a not-very-stylish public rest room.) The first shot is just her with some very “come hither” eyes, the second and third include an individual in gray sweats and a hoodie (the Daily Mail refers to him as “a male pal”), and the fourth slide is a video of a fire burning in some kind of trash receptacle, with an envelope framed in the center.
But wait, there’s more! As a caption, Fox wrote, “You can taste the dishonesty/ it’s all over your breath.” This is a lyric from Beyoncé’s song “Pray You Catch Me" from the 2016 album Lemonade, widely accepted to be commentary on her husband Jay-Z’s infidelity.
Lastly, Fox, who has 21 million followers, made some adjustments to the list of people she was following. The count currently stands at three—Timothée Chalamet, Harry Styles, and, a brand new addition according to the Fox-watchers in her comments—Eminem. This is notable because, in the words of TMZ, Em is “heavy into beef” with MGK! (Indeed, the two performers have exchanged ferocious “diss tracks” in the not-too-distant past.)
Fox, 36, and Kelly, 32 (and whose given name is Colson Baker) were photographed holding hands on Friday night at Drake’s pre-Super Bowl party at Hangar 1 in Scottsdale, Arizona, a venue that claims to be the “first and only” spot for private jets to also host bar and bat mitzvahs. (They also have planes for sale.) The pics of the maybe-not-so-much-engaged-anymore couple show Fox in the same alluring dress that was later seen on Instagram.
Weirdly enough, earlier that same Friday, Kelly was performing at the preposterously named “Waste Management Phoenix Open” (a golf tournament that also includes rap-rockers?), and he was mildly electrocuted on stage. Even though this is a plot point from an episode of Poker Face, MGK is perfectly fine, but one can find images of him floating around of him looking like Vyvyan Basterd from The Young Ones.
