Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly got engaged & then drank each other’s blood

MTV Video Music Awards 2021

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly are engaged! He proposed to her in Puerto Rico on the 11th. They’ve been together since early 2020. Megan was actually still technically married to Brian Austin Green when she and MGK first started happening, but her divorce came through and she and MGK have been inseparable ever since. Their British GQ co-cover story last year was a perfect encapsulation of their appeal: they’re trying to be mysterious, goth, edgelord vampires and it comes across as cheeseball and sweet. Speaking of vampires, this was Megan’s engagement announcement:

In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree

We asked for magic

We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time.
Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma.

Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him.

And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes.

…and then we drank each other’s blood


[From Megan’s IG]

They drank each other’s blood? Aw, that’s cute. Very Angelina Jolie-circa-1999. In fact, this whole relationship is giving me Dollar Store Knock-Off Jolie/Jonny Lee Miller circa 1995. Bless them.

As for the engagement ring, MGK proposed with a ring he designed himself, with Stephen Webster. The ring is one pear-shaped diamond and one pear-shaped emerald, designed to form a “heart.” MGK wrote on his IG: “i know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love.” That’s cool that he put so much thought into it and that it has so much meaning to them. (But it’s kind of an ugly, ‘80s-style ring.)

    The fact they’re always going on about how much work and pain and sacrifice their *18 MONTH* relationship has required is such a red flag to me. It should be the honeymoon period but this just sounds toxic af. Good luck, I guess.

    • ReginaGeorge says:

      This was my same thought. The first year of dating is usually pretty blissful. She’s talking like they’ve seen some real shit. They are probably the type of couple who thrive on drama because to them, the intensity of it all translates to “love and passion”. I would expect that from a 18-23 year old but not from a 35 yr old woman with 3 kids. Smh. But then again, since she was pretty much groomed by BAG and was in some sort of Stockholm relationship, she may be dealing with some arrested development issues.

      • Hannah says:

        When I read this, I thought they were talking about the personal work they had done to be a strong couple, sometimes the baggage we come to a relationship with needs to be processed before we can fully open up and just exist. That’s just my take on it tho!

    • Katherine says:

      Yep. I used to think pain, work, and sacrifices were part of some sort of dramatic true love thing, but no, turns out they aren’t. Real love is being comfortable with each other and having a life together and things *outside* of that relationship begin to require sacrifice and work and pain, not the other way around. But hey, maybe they just said this for the poetry of the moment or smth.

      • Sasha says:

        I’m pretty sure they are talking about him getting sobering, and then both growing together, being authentic, etc.

        Personal work is f’in painful! And sometimes there are circumstances that make you go off the rails (personally speaking, I just finished an intensive professional program, and my meltdowns were terrible, and the near- psychosis the stress brought me was something my fellow watched and was often on the receiving end of). I wish I could say life (and myself) were a steady ride, but they aren’t. Luckily I have the insight to look back and go “oh my god- I have to change” and it sounds like they might have this too?

        They seem to thrive off of growth and connection

      • Katherine says:

        Oh, he got sober? Congratulations. I guess this is why it’s not recommended to start a relationship when a person is going through stuff like this – it’s just very hard plus you are risking to lose a good thing as a lot of people would walk away from prominently unhealthy and mentally taxing things like meltdowns and such as they are traumatizing on their own. I wish them luck and good mental and otherwise health.

    • Jules says:

      Oh yea, really healthy dynamics. Megan sadly went from one abusive relationship to another. But they are drinking each others blood so they must be super woke and spiritual. Or something like that.

      • H says:

        Yep. I wish Megan the best but it seems like she went from super controlling Brian to, yeah, Machine Gun Kelly. I got nothing.

      • Maddiish says:

        Uh, What?

        maybe they meant a pandemic and how it exacerbated mental health issues for a lot of people struggling with mental illness and substance abuse? Or maybe it was difficult for Megan to divorce the man who groomed her.

        I’m sorry, but unless you know something I don’t, her relationship with MGK doesn’t seem abusive. But I guess because MGK can seem like a douchbag and likes to party a little too much, he’s just as bad as BAG? I don’t even understand what’s unhealthy about their dynamic? Last I saw, being over the top and having a gothy vibe isn’t a crime or abusive. That’s just such a karenish take, there’s nothing wrong with liking emo boys or being into goth-light shit. So they want to drink each others blood, so what. As long as everyone is safe and consents, what’s the harm?

        So, they’re a immature for their ages and extra. Megan didn’t get to date normally because she was groomed into a relationship by a creep, MGK had a kid when he was 18–neither of them were able to date in the early twenties like most of us did. What does it matter? They aren’t hurting anyone and they’re clearly happy.

      • Jules says:

        If you have no background on what they’ve been saying and doing, then enough said. Try this thing called google!

      • Otaku fairy says:

        I mean, even if she was/is in an abusive relationship, using that situation to mock her or people in general for bigly bad ‘wokeness’ would be tacky AF.

      • Jules says:

        Aw, so sowwy to hurt the fans feelings. If they’re gonna flaunt it, we’re gonna comment.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        Fans? Right to speak? LOL. When you lose the burner ipad, you lose a lot.

  2. Gillysirl says:

    I love the ring. The bands (as much as you can see) look amazingly detailed and delicate.

    • NorthernGirl_20 says:

      I love it as well

    • Seaflower says:


    • Sof says:

      I like it too! I’ve been into emerald rings lately, if only I could afford them…

    • MF1 says:

      I love it too. It’s really unique, and bold and delicate at the same time. Plus emeralds are just gorgeous.

      • Lena says:

        Okay I’m here to say I love it too! I haven’t been into the 2 diamonds but different shape engagement rings like Emarata or Kylie (although hers isn’t an engagement ring I don’t believe) but those are two pretty stones making up a heart and prettier than a heart shaped cut diamond imo.

    • Mle428 says:

      I also love the ring. I’m April (diamond) and my husband and son are both May (emerald) so if we win the lottery…lol

    • BrainFog 💉💉😷 says:

      I don’t usually care for rings but this one is actually quite nice.

  3. Sakura says:

    Sweet, but the ring is hideous.

  4. Jen D says:

    Amazing. I love it. It’s so unbelievably corny and I’m entertained, so no complaints. Did anyone give their moms a Mother’s pride ring back in the 80s? You know, with everyone’s birthstone? This ring has major mother’s pride ring vibes.

    • PaulaFunyon says:

      Precisely, this is entertaining. I actually laughed out loud watching their Insta video.

      I’ll have to google pride rings!

  5. Kate says:

    I really like the ring. It’s sweet how thoughtful he was designing it. They’re a pair of weirdos who suit each other, congratulations and good luck I guess.

  6. tempest prognosticator says:

    What “hell” have they walked through? I seem to have missed their hell walk.

    • Sakura says:

      @Tempest- I also scratched my head at that part. What “hell” does she speak of?

    • NicB says:

      They indicated in that GQ interview that the relationship is so intense and not always in the best way. I get the sense that there are toxic elements and the relationship can be all consuming.

      • Normades says:

        Yea, um, that doesn’t sound good.
        Seems super codependent if you ask me.
        The blood drinking thing is just ridiculous. So edgy (eye roll). Do you think they cut themselves and sucked it out or dripped it in cup? Either way it’s unsanitary and gross.

      • Bettyrose says:

        So the hell they walked through together was their relationship? That’s too bad. I had hoped she finally found joy and fun in her life.

      • Vavavoom says:

        And where are her kids in all this?? As much as I think she adores her children, an all consuming relationship that she jumped into with both feet seems selfish and maybe dangerous? I never thought BAG would be the one providing the seemingly healthy family household.
        (and I hate when people say ‘what about the kids??’ but I was the one who thought it this time.)

    • dj says:

      I caught part of an interview between MGK on Drew Barrymore show. He was describing his experience of being with his father when he passed. What I was able to see of him changed my pre judgement of him. He seemed thoughtful and authentic. Drew Barrymore said she “loved him so much” but then Drew seems to love everyone. Going through a parents’ death is difficult for most people and it seemed like he was doing the therapeutic work on himself.

  7. Barbie1 says:

    Love the ring. This will sadly crash and burn. I wonder how exactly they walked through hell together but ok. Good luck.

  8. Stacy Dresden says:

    I too missed their hell walk. I like the ring, it’s unique.

  9. Noki says:

    The ring looks like another option Princess Diana could have picked .

    • Driver8 says:

      I loathe Diana’s ring. This one isn’t my style, but the stones are gorgeous and the thought put into the design is sweet.

  10. shanaynay says:

    I’m so tired of these two and their outrageous behavior. Enough is enough. It’s gotten old and played out. Personally, I don’t see this ending well for them.

  11. Rapunzel says:

    BAG was so horrid that MGK seems like a huge step up for Megan. I’m a sucker for emeralds too. But the blood drinking? Ewwwww.

  12. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    I like the ring and thoughtfulness behind the design. I’m also partial to emeralds as it is my birthstone.

  13. OriginalLala says:

    What does the “walk through hell” refer to? Their relationship has always given me “dramatic teens in love who think it’s them against the world” vibes. I wish them luck and love

    • Chaine says:

      Right? They are exhausting, hard to believe this is two people in their thirties with four kids between them.

      • lucy2 says:

        Exactly. Seems like people who just love drama. I am the exact opposite. They do seem happy together, so I’ll just wish them well and hope it works out for them.

  14. Sakura says:

    I bet they get married, she has another kid or two, then he’ll cheat on her just as he did to every other hot girl he dated before Megan. I give it 5 more years, and that’s being generous.

  15. teehee says:

    Queue or however you spell it, the divorce in 3, 2, 1 years from these two apparent snowflakes

  16. Tootsie McJingle says:

    I was here for the first half of that headline. The second half got me, not gonna lie.

  17. Twin falls says:

    These two lol.

  18. Lola Coasters says:

    Damn she looks like one of the Hadid girls in the top photo!!

    • Pocket Litter says:

      You are correct. Photo is wrong for this story. I clicked on it because of it. Please change.

  19. Beff says:

    Maybe hell walk = bad ayahuasca trip? Agreed that they are a bright flame that will certainly fade sooner than later.

  20. Case says:

    I’m happy for them. The thoughtfulness of the ring is so lovely.

    I tend to think they dramatize their relationship in their Instagram captions. I’ve seen them do joint interviews and they seem funny and really happy together.

  21. Eurydice says:

    Wow, intoxication and karma, multiple lifetimes and brooding and blood – takes me back to Buffy and Angel.

  22. Lonnie tinks says:

    You can tell they find each other intoxicating; it’ll be one hell of a hangover, but I hope they enjoy the ride.

  23. Jayna says:

    I can imagine it wasn’t so easy. She was married. So they get involved. She leaves her husband, which is one of the most stressful times of someone’s life, going through a divorce with children involved, three in this case who loved their mommy. Even if you are the one wanting the divorce, the stress is still there.

    There’s so much to go through as far as splitting up assets. She was the breadwinner. What her ex was going after financially would be stressful and negotiations, lots of negotiations. Dealing with the children and their pain and custody and schedules. Lining up work. And that’s what MGK walked into. He wasn’t newly dating someone footloose and fancy free. He was dating someone going through a lot.

    So they made it through all of that.

    • Kate says:

      Plus a pandemic! Yeah, I can see why it was a stressful time for them, even without the intensity of the relationship that they have described.

    • AmyB says:

      I believe Megan helped MGK with getting sober as well? That is very difficult and stressful !

      And having been through my own divorce (yes, many years ago), it is hell! Even when you and your ex are in agreement about things. So I can see where she might be coming from here.

  24. AppleCart says:

    They seem well suited for each other in that kooky way of theirs. I listened to an interview with him and Howard Stern last year. And he seemed like an earnest sweet and genuine guy. That had a hellish upbringing but was able to make it through and be successful. I like unconventional engagement rings. I think it’s pretty.

    • jenny says:

      I think they are cute and he could very well be a good guy beneath his prettyboy looks.
      I hope it works out for them she deserves it after that douche Brian.
      Its hard coming out of a controlling relationship and start to love and trust again.

  25. Roo says:

    I suspect (at least hope) that the blood comment was a joke, following up a serious comment about the engagement.

    • Sam says:

      I also read the blood drinking as a joke.

      I also am inclined to believe they had a crazy ayahuasca experience. Either way these paragraphs …😑

  26. Pinkosaurus says:

    Megan is not a player but she does seem to enjoy lots of drama in her LTR. I suspect the road to the altar will have many twists and turns, unless they immediately run off and elope.

  27. Léna says:

    I would be surprised if they get married or make it past 2 years of marriage tbh…. It screams toxic relationship

  28. Stefanie says:

    How was this filmed?
    There are three angles so three different cameras?
    And you don’t see or hear anyone else?
    This just looks so staged. And she doesn’t even look happy.

    • Philly says:

      That’s what I was wondering – romantic surprise proposal with a full camera crew in tow lol

      I love emeralds but that ring is so ugly.

  29. Georgie says:

    Maybe the “hell” they referred to was MGK’s decision to follow his dream of becoming an NFL referee??? What IS that shirt he’s wearing to propose????

    As always, you do you, MGK.

  30. Sof says:

    They seem so intense that drinking eachother’s blood makes sense for some reason, even if she meant it as a joke.

  31. K says:

    I adore emeralds and that one is beautiful. Mazel Tov to Mr and Mrs Wtf.

  32. Piratewench says:

    The only thing I liked about this was hearing the coqui frog of Puerto Rico. Damn I miss Puerto Rico so much!

  33. Rhar says:

    They’ve ‘walked through hell together’ ? Please!

  34. Alexandria says:

    Lmao…but congratulations. I have a soft spot for Megan and wish her well.

  35. Bettyrose says:

    I really like the ring but the video was filmed with multiple cameras and probably a director, so the acting shocked at the proposal is a bit over the top.

  36. Mireille says:

    You know personally, if I was Megan, I would not jump the gun so quickly into marriage after a divorce. I’d much rather date around and have fun enjoying my singledom for a couple of years. She’s got plenty of time to marry again later down the line. But meh. To each their own. If they’re happy, so be it.

    The ring is OK. Not a big emerald fan.

  37. Julia K says:

    Love this ring. It will transform into a perfect cocktail ring for her right hand when this relationship goes tits up.

  38. washappy21 says:

    I just can’t get over how pathetic they are. So edgy and and unique! Right….it’s been done before kids and it’s been done much better. You’re not special and you’re not anything we haven’t seen before. I get it, you’re in love. I get it you are soulmates.

    Their breakup is going to be epic.

    That all being said I love the ring and think it’s sweet he put so much thought into it.

  39. jferber says:

    I’ve loved them together since they got together. I really have. I hope it all works for them. They are fire together and he is very sweet and lovey-dovey with her.

  40. KB says:

    I love her and her ring is gorgeous!

  41. Emily says:

    I read the drink each other’s blood line as a joke. It seems like Megan’s sense of humour, playing into how people perceive them.

    but maybe they did.

  42. Lionel says:

    Howling at “dollar store Angelina/Jonny!” I thought the same except my knockoff was Angie/Billy Bob.

    Why is MGK dressed like a referee?

  43. Angh says:

    It’s like they’re trying to one up Angie and Billy Bob. It’s a bit try hard and unoriginal. Am I the only one who can’t tell the difference between MGK and Aaron Carter?

  44. AmelieOriginal says:

    I’ve always seen MGK as a rebound for Megan than a long term relationship. She got with BAG when she was 18, became a stepmom and then a mom super young, and then finally realized in her 30s how much time she wasted with BAG and that getting with a much older guy so young was a huge mistake. Then she met MGK, a more age appropriate guy at a time when she was reevaluating things, and what felt like “cosmic fate” was more of an escape route out of a toxic marriage. I don’t think these two will last, whenever people are super dramatic and talk about “twin flames” and are over the top, it tends to burn brightly before it burns out dramatically. That kind of obsessive passion doesn’t last long as it can’t be sustained. I don’t think they’ll make it down the aisle but I do think they might have one or two kids together. But I fear the end of MGK and Megan will be very toxic and dramatic.

    Also the ring is ugly, I like emeralds and the emerald stone is pretty but two such different looking stones on the same ring are so tacky looking.

    • Jules says:

      The twin flame stuff is so toxic. What is disturbing is how they are trying to make it more known and mainstream by constantly talking about it and thinking it’s some evolved love. And not the controlling dynamics, highs and lows that it is.

  45. Mina_Esq says:

    Love the ring. They are annoying as a couple. We all know people like this. Both aware that their relationship sucks 80% of the time, but both using the high from the remaining 20% to convince themselves that the hardship is somehow part of a noble path of true love. It’s not. It’s just an unhealthy match between two incompatible individuals. I wish they could both find more compatible partners so that they could see that love doesn’t have to be hard.

  46. Gobo says:

    Angelina/Billy Bob copy cat vibes off these two.

  47. Otaku fairy says:

    Doubt they’ll make it down the aisle. The ring is nice though.

  48. Crystal June says:

    That’s so lovely- diamond April Emerald May. Very thoughtful.

  49. westcoast says:

    The thing is, is that he began his sober journey when they met, she was a big influence on him getting better so their relationship would have been hard, pushing each others boundaries through trying to support each other and test each other. Just because a relationship was hard through times of their 18 months does not mean there are red flags, it just means they are growing up and taking responsibility for their own growth as well.

  50. TIFFANY says:

    I keep forgetting how young Megan was and how much of that ‘foolish’ time that we all had in our 20’s was spent with BAG.

    From what I have seen of Machine Gun, he seems to be a alright dude who is a little bit extra.

    They both had their children at young ages and adore their children.

    I don’t think this will be the cluster that others think. I think alot of the start of their relationship was the lust we all had and they started talking about a future together.

    Congrats to them.

    I like Megan and I hope this works out for her.

  51. Silent Star says:

    I love the way these two are so flashy and unconventional. I really do wish them happiness and hope they treat each other well. If their marriage doesn’t last, so what? I don’t know why anyone gets married, but they are passionate people and good for them for expressing their adoration to each other. I hope they keep following their own unique path together.

  52. jferber says:

    Yes, I’m rooting for them. I hope it is a lasting joy for them to be together. In a way, they remind me of Kourtney and Travis. They may be extra, but the love is real.

  53. trudy says:

    It’s not an ugly ring at all, they’re beautiful together

  54. BountyHunter says:

    I see codependency. He wouldn’t be with her if she didn’t look the way she does, so he gets validated for getting “the hot girl.” She gets validation by being “the hot girl.” What are they gonna do when they age?

  55. Lucille says:

    I read an interview of hers where she talked about their relationship. It sounds exactly like the toxic relationship I had when I was 20. Those two don’t have a healthy relationship at all. It’s toxic and they’re emotionally co-dependent. I really don’t understand how people can be rooting for them. It so obvious that they aren’t good for each other. This will end in a disaster for both of them.
