Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly stepped out in NYC, so they didn’t break up

Last week, there was a surge in gossip about Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly. While Megan and MGK have always been over-the-top, confessional and extremely demonstrative with their love, it seemed like things had been getting quieter in recent months/weeks, and then last week, Megan posted photos of herself without her diamond-and-emerald engagement ring. Perhaps there was a slight cooldown? They’ve been together since March 2020, and engaged since January of this year. Megan calls him her “twin flame” and her soulmate. So it would be difficult to walk back all of that crap, right?

Well, Megan and MGK were out and about last night and it appears that all is well. They went to the Time 100 gala in NYC, then they went out to dinner at Carbone. They held hands and looked okay. Maybe not as “loved up” as they were a year ago, but they’re definitely still together. For now.

Us Weekly actually has a story this week about how Megan and MGK are “secretly planning their wedding” even though they haven’t set a date yet. A source tells the magazine, “They’ve worked on their problems and worked really hard to get to the place where they are today. It’s still a struggle at times and they tend to have a lot of ups and downs. He is making a lot of effort to be more mature. He’s not always easy to deal with. He still has this teenage side to him.” Apparently, MGK still likes to stay out all night and party, while Megan (a mother of three) prefers going home early. The insider also confesses that at one point, several months ago, Meghan “was beyond done with him. She was fed up with his BS. It got really bad between them.” But apparently things have turned around now. We’ll see.

    I really wish I could have been a fly on the wall when these outfits/looks were developed.

    Sounds like reality kicked in after the initial rush of attraction and now they’re figuring out if they actually work as a couple long-term.

    • BB says:

      They look super ridiculous but in an unfunny way.

    • Mimi says:

      Are those costumes or do they dress like that normally? Also, he has a daughter–it’s always said she’s a “mother of three” but he is a father as well.

  2. BB says:

    They look utterly stupid together.

    I’m not sure if she morphed into Kim or if Kim morphed into her?

  3. DougDoug says:

    Her hair looks awesome.

  4. Yup, Me says:

    He can be a soul mate without being life partner material.

  5. Nicole says:

    Age and maturity does matter. She has been a full time working mom for years, and he’s kind of new to the party. I’m not saying they should break up, but if you’re stepping into the role of step parent, there needs to be some value to executing structure in the home.

    • bettyrose says:

      Good point. I don’t think of her as especially mature, but actually she probably is behind the scenes. I thought he was good for her because she had her youth stolen by BAG, never got to sow her wild oats, but it’s possible a good year of sowing was sufficient and she’s ready to leave the party scene.

    • shellGame says:

      Once “good times for all” attraction wears off, you realize your holding hands w an ashtray. Bleeeeccchhhh

  6. Wait what says:

    Did he tattoo his abs in red?

  7. BrainFog 💉💉💉😷 says:

    It pains me to say this but he looks really good here. I know. I have issues.

  8. jferber says:

    I always thought they looked hot together. I too thought they’d cooled down because they weren’t everywhere anymore. Good to see they’re still together. I do like them together. And no embarrassment in saying he DOES look hot.

  9. jferber says:

    She looks great with red hair (like a small Jessica Rabbit). Also, other things I’ve read about him make it seem like he’s a nice guy. He may be immature, but I think he does have a good heart.

  10. goofpuff says:

    Doesn’t it signal the beginning of the end when you call for the paps to come take photos of you to prove you’re still together?

  11. jbones says:

    put on shitty outfits, walked in the front door straight out to the back door. All good, see?

  12. Boxy Lady says:

    I was on the PATH train on Saturday morning and I saw a dude who looked just like MG Kelly. Seriously, *just like him*! His hair was regular blonde, not platinum, and he wore a jacket so I saw no tattoos. He was really tall (I was standing next to him to get to the escalator) and he had a big skateboard. I was looking at him the whole train ride wondering if that was really him or a doppelganger.

  13. detritus says:

    I don’t see the ring in these photos either…

  14. Emme says:

    Meh. The ring could be away being cleaned. Or being resized….up or down. Or could have a loose stone and being repaired. Or a lost stone being replaced. There are many reasons for not wearing a particular ring. Doesn’t have to be a nefarious one!

  15. Bread and Circuses says:

    My gosh, she looks so pretty. That dress is amazing!

  16. Case says:

    I like them individually and as a couple. He gets a bad rap but comes across like a super lovely, genuine guy in interviews.

    I think it’s probably less that they cooled down and more that life/family/work got in the way. Megan wasn’t with him for his whole tour this summer, but joined him for what seemed to be most of the European leg. As for the ring…that thing looks heavy to wear all the time lol. Or maybe she’s getting it resized/cleaned/etc. I feel bad for celebs having their relationship status called into question because they didn’t wear their ring that day!
