Machine Gun Kelly is probably Megan Fox’s post-Brian Austin Green jumpoff

Megan Fox grabs lunch from Erewhon Market in Calabasas

Months ago, I was going to ask the youths to explain who Machine Gun Kelly is and why he exists. But then I realized I don’t actually care, and I sort of forgot about him. Clearly, I’m not listening to what many youths are listening to, because I only know the name “Machine Gun Kelly” for a few vague reasons – one, he probably had a fling with Kate Beckinsale months ago, and two, there was some kind of beef with Justin Bieber. And now I’ll know him for something else: he might be Megan Fox’s jumpoff after her marriage to Brian Austin Green fell apart in slow motion for years.

Could Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green be on the outs? The Transformers actress, 34, was spotted driving around and picking up food in Calabasas, California, with rapper Machine Gun Kelly on Friday.

Both Fox and the rapper, 30, have been cast in Midnight In The Switchgrass, although production on the film has been halted due to the coronavirus pandemic, Deadline previously reported. A rep for Machine Gun Kelly did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

I mean, E! News reported last month that Megan and BAG were separated again, and she’s been photographed without her wedding ring. I feel like it’s safe to say that regardless of Machine Gun Kelly’s entrance into the situation, BAG and Megan were already on the outs.

As for BAG, he posted an Instagram of a butterfly with this message: “Eventually butterflies get bored sitting on a flower for too long. They start feeling smothered. It’s a great big world and they want to experience it.” Yeah dude. Your butterfly wife was 18 years old when you started dating her, and you were 30 years old at the time. Of course she wants to experience the world beyond YOU.

I can’t say Machine Gun Kelly is really giving me any kind of good vibe.

    He played Tommy Lee in that Netflix movie “The Dirt” and captured him pretty well I think.

    • Winnie says:

      Ohhh! Really? I loved that movie. I don’t know why. It was just good 80s nonsense. He was pretty cute in that.

      I have no idea what his music is. This is the first time I’ve heard of him. Pretty women seem to love him apparently.

  2. detritus says:

    I know very little about Kelly, but he seems kinda nice. Isn’t he the one who played guitar for a young fan who missed his show?

    Am I wrong?

    • Clsarah says:

      He came and spoke to a college team my husband coached a few years ago and he seemed like a great guy. He was really humble back then. He’s known for being pretty charitable in the Cleveland area where he is from but I haven’t heard much about him in a long while.

  3. Case says:

    I feel like I read a lot about Machine Gun Kelly but know nothing about him lol.

    • Ash says:

      Same! I consider myself very (too much?) up to date with all sorts of celeb goings-on and I literally have never seen his face before that picture just above. I know his name from his being adjacent to other celebs but as to what he actually does to be famous…couldn’t tell you.

  4. Mia4s says:

    Yikes at that Instagram post. Is he going the martyr route? (Oh I understand dear!). Ick. But yeah no shock she outgrew him…I just wish there weren’t three small children in the midst of something that has indications of heading down a messy road.

  5. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Lol. No one is listening to Machine Gun Kelly – not even the youths. That’s why he’s trying to be an actor now. His rap career is over. Due in large part to Eminem ending it during their diss track beef.

    • Oh-Dear says:

      Eminem is the only reason I know MGK. I am definitely not a youth but I have teen daughters and he isn’t on their hip hop playlists.

    • Nuks says:

      Maybe it’s quarantine, but “diss track beef” is now my new love.

  6. Leducduswaz says:

    The only thing I know about Machine Gun Kelly is that time he was on WWE and Kevin Owens powerbombed him off the stage. It was glorious.

  7. lucy2 says:

    I hope Megan really did leave BAG, he seemed controlling and mean. But now he’s a free butterfly, LOL.

    I wouldn’t look twice at that dude, but he’s somehow dated Kate Beckinsale and Megan Fox??? To each their own I guess.

  8. Bucketbot says:

    I have heard he is pretty sweet in real life. And he is funny apparently. All I’ve noticed is that he is a bit of a showoff, but it’s Hollywood so…He def needs to give up the drugs and the terrible lifestyle though.

    I think that’s his daughter in the last pic.

  9. chick says:

    His music is awesome and he’s very talented, glad he doesn’t appeal to this tired clump

  10. TheOriginalMia says:

    Passive aggressive much, BAG?! He’s ridiculous. He’s controlled so much of Meghan’s life is it any wonder she has felt smothered. He was too old for her in the first place, especially with her issues. He took advantage and now it’s over. She’s stronger mentally and doesn’t need him anymore. Good for her. Have no idea who Machine Gun Kelly is. If they are dating, more power to them.

  11. TryHarrd says:

    MGK looks terrible as a blonde.

    • molly says:

      Yeah, he looks dirty and druggy and gross. I’m happy to read here that folks have seen and read good things about him, but ew.

  12. Mtec says:

    All I know MGK for is trying to pick fights with Eminem and shaming/blaming Ariana Grande for Pete Davison’s mental illness.

  13. SJR says:

    MGK is doing alright for himself, he has had several acting roles, his music, he endorses, think he might have a clothing line. For a young guy, he has $$.
    I’ve seen photos of him in dressed in Versace, and D&G, he cleans up pretty well.
    I am not a tattoo fan but, he can look damn good in a suit, nice smile, tall, if I was in my late 20’s, yeah, I hang with him.

    He and Pete Davidson are buddy, buddy so no surprise he talks crap about AG, he thinks he is sticking up for his buddy.

    He is actually pretty good in The Dirt on Netflix.
    MGK plays Tommy Lee and the actor who plays Nikki Sixx is Douglas Booth, both convincingly play their parts. Douglas Booth is even better looking than the young Nikki Sixx was. Big Crue fan myself.

    If Megan Fox finally ditches that dirtbag BAG, I say good for her!
    I think she wasted a lot of time with him. Outgrew him certainly. They can afford childcare help and I hope she can get her career restarted. We all know in Hollywood Hot Girls have a short window of time to be the It girl.

  14. JRenee says:

    Didn’t they split before and then have the 3rd kid?

  15. Lens horne says:

    I think he graduated from Tulane. I also think he dated Halsey

  16. Mina_Esq says:

    I don’t understand why she punches below her weight, so to speak. She could do so much better than both these guys.

  17. K says:

    I’ve never heard Kelly’s music, but he’s recognizable to me for the one time he guest-hosted on Catfish when he told off this woman for persistently lying to everyone and for homophobia. He called her “corny” and “a shameful citizen,” which was hilarious, without being cruel. I kind of wished he was there every episode to call them all that.

  18. Ellie says:

    He was in the movie Nerve, if I am not mistaken (?)

  19. Madi says:

    Oh no, just gross. Both Machine…(I can’t even bring myself to type such a silly name) and BAG. Poor Meghan. She is beautiful and must have some past trauma to pick an older, allegedly controlling man, and then someone who looks and acts like this. Speaking from experience, she should really get some therapy.
