Did Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly break up after three years together?

Megan Fox posted (then deleted) this Instagram over the weekend. The message: “You can taste the dishonesty/ it’s all over your breath,” paired with photos of Megan looking great, plus a video of Megan burning something. Megan’s fans think she’s burning Machine Gun Kelly’s love letters. That theory might have legs, especially since this post happened at the same time that Megan deleted all of her photos with MGK, and then she started following Eminem and Timothee Chalamet on IG. Now, the problem is that these are photos of Meghan behind-the-scenes at the “Cash App And Visa’s h.wood Homecoming Party” in Miami, which she attended with MGK. Does that mean that they fought at the event and she decided to dump him there??

Megan and Machine Gun Kelly got together in early 2020. I was actually somewhat grateful for him at the time, because meeting MGK got Megan out of her toxic off-and-on cycle with Brian Austin Green. Finally, Megan had a way out and a new man. But it felt like MGK was just as toxic as BAG. Megan believed they were twin flames, soulmates and two halves of the same goth heart. They drank each other’s blood and he gave her an engagement ring with thorns on the inner ring, so she would bleed if she ever removed the ring. Gross.

Now, Megan and MGK just attended the Grammys together. I was actually surprised to see them there together, because there have been murmurs of a breakup for months now. I really don’t know. The streets are saying that he cheated. But the streets lie!

    their appearance on the Grammys red carpet was so awkward that at the time I said something was definitely up with the two of them. so I’m not surprised.

  2. HufflepuffLizLemon says:

    Their relationship seems toxic AF but MGK is dirtbag sexy to me so I get the attraction. I would love to see her pull back and go underground for a while, relationship wise. (Or date Em lol)

  3. Ange says:

    Honestly one can only hope…

  4. Kate says:

    This relationship has made her relevant again, there’s no way she’s gonna give that up. She hasn’t received this much attention since 2010.

  5. Emmi says:

    Not going to lie, I kinda loved this for her as a rebound but this intensity is not something you can sustain over years. She has kids. How much energy can one person have?

    • Coc says:

      You love that she in another toxic relationship after getting out of a toxic relationship.

      • C says:

        I don’t think that’s what Emmi said, I think she pretty clearly acknowledged the toxicity was unsustainable.

      • Emmi says:

        I cannot decide for her if this relationship is/was toxic and neither can you. I’m saying that they were both clear about the sheer obsession they have with each other and the lines between that and passion are blurred. Passion is good, obsession usually means that there is no room to really get to know someone and build a relationship. It’s not sustainable and therefore usually doomed to fail if that is what drew you to the person.

      • Coco says:


        They only acknowledged that the toxic relationship is not something you can sustain over years. It seems toxic from the beginning and only got more intense as time went on, so my point still stands.

      • molly says:

        The BAG relationship was your classic, “I’m a 30 year old man, she pursued ME as a 17 year old, and nothing happened until her 18th birthday. Truuuuuust me.”

        I don’t know if this relationship is toxic too, but at least she came into it on equal footing as a grownass adult.

    • AmelieOriginal says:

      Yeah, you could tell it wouldn’t last. He was a fun rebound after a decade of a toxic relationship that started when Meghan was barely an adult. It must have been such a novelty for her to enter the relationship as an equal. These kinds of passionate, obsessive, head over heels relationships never last though, especially if the two people make really ridiculous statements about how their love is the most epic love story of all time and act like they basically invented the concept of love lol. They were fun to watch but I knew would inevitably crash and burn. Now that she’s got the chaotic bad boy out of her system, maybe she can go for someone more low key and calm unless she’s the kind that thrives on drama and chaos.

      There was an interview MGK did where he talked about being on the phone with Megan while she was away for work and he literally had a gun in his mouth and was threatening suicide. When I read that, alarm bells went off and I knew it wouldn’t last. I understand why he and Pete Davidson are friends.

  6. AmyB says:

    Were there rumors that MGK abused her? I really don’t follow them much, unless I see pics of them at events on social media, but the sign behind Megan’s pics on Instagram said – When you can’t walk away. Seems to be some poster about domestic violence? And I saw comments surrounding that on Twitter. IF there was some kind of abuse, I def hope she walked away!!

    • Spenceraulait says:

      I read a blind item on CDAN that he is responsible for her broken wrist. I truly hope it isn’t true but if it is then hopefully she’s in a safe space now

      • AmyB says:

        Yes, I saw she had that. Hopefully, she did end it, if those rumors are true!!!

        I was definitely routing for her, getting out of her toxic marriage to BAG…

      • Case says:

        That’s BS. She flew in from filming elsewhere to be with him for the Grammys. Her injury is likely something from a stunt.

    • It Really Is You, Not Me says:

      The first thing I thought when I saw that sign is that it was a message about what was really going on. Also, it raises red alarms when someone is so concerned about the other partner cheating that they do something extreme like design an engagement ring that makes you bleed if you take it off. Really seems like a projection of what he knows about himself, which is that he’s going to cheat, so he wants to make sure she doesn’t. In any event, the thorned engagement ring certainly seems like he thinks she’s his property. I hope she gets out of there fast.

      • SomeChick says:

        that story about the engagement ring was a wild exaggeration which was widely discussed (and debunked) here. I’m rather surprised to see it repeated as fact. photos of the ring – from the jeweler – showed that the “thorns” were a design element, they were smooth on the inside and not going to make anyone bleed. it’s ridiculous.

        these two have always been over the top. remember how fun it was back when they were doing stuff like climbing onto the roof of that nightclub during quarantine?

  7. Digital Unicorn says:

    I have a soft spot for her so this makes me happy as he is a massive dirt bag – I can see why there were together but it was never gonna last. As least she is free from BAG.

    Hasn’t she and Eminem been friends for years – she was in one of his music videos.

    Also isn’t he a known cheater?

  8. SarahCS says:

    Is anyone going to be surprised if this thing does flame out? The whole vibe was rebound with a lot of teenage energy in the ‘there’s never been a love like this’ space. Good for her overall from where I’m sitting (assuming everything we heard was genuinely consensual). If he cheated then GET OUT.

  9. ThatsNotOkay says:

    Rumors or speculation is flying he cheated with his guitarist Sophie. But then Megan replied, Maybe I got with her. Anyway, she broke up with him spectacularly and as pettily as could ever warm my heart. I do hope it’s over for good and that she finds a person who is healthy, happy, and who loves themselves, so hopefully she can do and be the same.

  10. Susan says:

    Like a previous poster said, I have a soft spot for Megan. Not really sure why. I hope she gets out of this toxic mess and settles down. This drama has to be getting old for her and her children.

    • Betsy says:

      I knew nothing of her until her turn on New Girl. She was really funny and good; I admit I had had low hopes for her but she’s just fun to watch. I’d like to see her in more comedy. I hope she gets safe.

  11. Abby says:

    Their relationship seemed exhausting in its intensity. I don’t know how you could keep that level of infatuation going.

    I hope she’s ok! I hope she finds happiness and stability.

  12. Meee says:

    They were apparently together this weekend, since MGK performed at the Phoenix Open, and attended a party that Drake hosted. So, who knows?

  13. H says:

    Just a refresher for anyone who might not remember – I think MGK said some messed up stuff about Eminem’s daughter or dated her and did her dirty and so Eminem hates him.

    Also let’s not forget MGK has some creepy things to say about girls who are definitely not of age yet. He’s gross and frankly I thought less of her the whole time they were togehter. I’m struggling with that bc it feels victim blaming but at the same time, I would think less of a friend who was left leaning and dated a white supremacist and I wouldn’t feel bad about that. Like at some point you are responsible for being with someone who has really poisonous views.

    • Jj says:

      All of this! He is a creepy trash bag and she is SO much better off without him. I really hope she has a period of getting to know herself without a partner. Or at least spends some time with Pete so she can see how being treated well feels. She is his type for sure

    • AmyB says:

      I believe MGK’s comments about Eminem’s daughter Hailey were the start of their “feud”, saying she is hot AF, when she was only 15/16. I would be pissed too!!

  14. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I wish he’d pull up his pants.

  15. Zaftig and Kitty says:


    I would SO be on board for that

    • AmelieOriginal says:

      Aren’t Pete and MGK friends though? If Pete got with Megan, that would probably end their friendship. MGK flew to NYC once when Pete was off his meds and posting very alarming tweets on social media about wanting to end his life. I think Pete got rid of social media after that.

  16. Enis says:

    I would dump him for that outfit.

    She is so beautiful and well put together and he is… that.

  17. Case says:

    Megan likes to troll on social media because she seems to think it’s funny how seriously people take her sarcasm and run wild with unfounded rumors.

    But in this case I’m inclined to believe they’re broken up (at least temporarily), just because she took the time to delete the pictures of him from Instagram. But who knows.

    • Coco says:

      More like she loves the attention she gets from trolling, because outside of that and her relationships no one is paying attention to her.

  18. C says:

    She’s completely deleted her instagram.

  19. Nuks says:

    She’s definitely highlighting the domestic abuse poster. What it means I don’t know.

  20. TwinFalls says:

    I understand the impulse to publicly burn it all down and yet. Her deleting her IG completely was a given after a post like that.

  21. j.ferber says:

    I read that she only allowed Eminem, Timothy Chalamet and Harry Styles to follow her account. I wonder if she’s interested in any of them as a replacement for MGK? I, too, like many others, also have a soft spot for Megan.

  22. nocturne says:

    MGK told a story about him putting a gun to his mouth and threatening to kill himself because “she was not there for him”. He admitted to this openly. THIS MAN IS ABUSIVE AS FUCK. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST CLASSIC ABUSE TACTICS THERE IS.

    She deliberately uploaded a photo of herself in front a domestic abuse poster, she posted about having a broken wrist and concussion, and there are other concerning photos and posts too.

    When she started dating him, Megan had just gotten out of a long-term abusive relationship with BAG which she started when she was a TEENAGER. She has moved from one abusive relationship to another.

    Everyone here is judging her for her behaviour. How she is extra, how she is doing extreme things and how she has embarrassed herself in the past and now.

    SHE HAS BEEN IN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP. The type of relationship that absolutely fucks with your brain so you act in ways that seem “crazy.”

    I will not be judging her for her behaviours during this relationship. All I can think is than fuck she’s out.

    She has spoken out in the past about not commenting on feminist issues, me too etc. Because people just don’t want to listen to her because of her appearance.

    She is dealing with, and has dealt with, the same bullshit that Marilyn, Pamela, Britney and Amber have gone through. If women are too beautiful, too sexy or present themselves in a certain way, people just don’t want to listen to them, or worse, blame them for the abuse and think they had it coming because of the way they present themselves.

    It must have been so hard for her to come forward about this because she knew she would get little to no sympathy. And you know what? She was right.

    • C says:

      Huh? Most people here are saying she was right to leave and giving her sympathy and saying they have a soft spot for her. Me included.
      And if you go on MGK’s Instagram he is getting absolutely torn apart for potentially hurting her and in any case messing up his relationship with her.

      • nocturne says:

        A lot of people are giving her sympathy, but for many it only goes so far. Many are still humming and hawing over whether it was actually abuse or critiquing her behaviour. Was she partly to blame? etc. I just wanted to state plainly that she was being abused, and unfortunately a lot of people are focusing on the relationship drama over the clear abuse that has been happening.

        They’re calling MGK a dirtbag, a cheater, a piece of trash. Great! But far fewer are acknowledging that he he committed domestic violence. This is not ‘drama.’ This is an abusive situation. This man has committed criminal acts.

        She is not the ‘perfect victim’ in many people’s eyes (if such a thing even exists), and I fear the tides will turn and people will go back to judging her behaviour just as harshly as they have done before.

      • C says:

        Plenty of people have pointed out his violent tendencies in this post and in others on this site. The reason he is being called those things here is because of his bad reputation which is abusive. Part of the issue is we don’t know the details of their relationship. Those may come out later. His behavior as it stands is certainly enough to draw some conclusions, which many here have.

        It’s not that I think the discourse around abuse doesn’t often center women as “at fault”, but here on this site regarding this particular topic is what I am referring to.

  23. HeyKay says:

    MGK is a well known drug user. He is proud of it. Listen to him in interviews, he is a complete tool. Sh*t talking for attention, etc.
    He caught her on the rebound, they decided to try to be the new Pam & Tommy which got them both attention and $$. MGK dating MF brought his level up, certainly.
    He has a “look” but is not a talented musician on the level of Tommy Lee.
    Tommy Lee and Motley Crue were huge at the height of their game, for over a decade. Huge. Tommy Lee is also an a**hole but Crue sold LPs and toured internationally.
    MGK is a one trick pony.

    She has constantly redone her face and body into a hyper-sexualized female, which Pam did also. It increases PR for a short time but doesn’t last longterm.

    She can do MUCH better.

    I fully expect both of them to have their fame continue to go downhill as the years go by.
    MGK is a has been in 6 months or less if she dumps him.

    • KateyDi says:

      Agree with all this! It’s sad to me that her whole persona is basically trying to be sexy for the male gaze and be hot. I get she Wasn’t treated well by the Press during the transformer years but at the same time she’s not really done anything to help out other women or other marginalized groups or show any support for anyone other than herself or the man she was with. Her whole self worth seems to be being sexy to men and having a guy no matter how bad. I hope she works on herself and not jump into a toxic relationship.

      • otaku fairy says:

        How do we know for sure that she hasn’t done anything to help other women or other marginalized groups? She may prefer to do those things privately for any number of reasons.

        This sort of goes back to what Jameela Jamil was talking about. There’s pressure on (often abused) female entertainers to become social justice Barbie to justify their existence, other causes they support, or any support they get from certain movements and marginalized communities. Pics or it didn’t happen is the assumption. The direct result of all of that pressure will sometimes be people rushing to enter or take the lead in conversations where they shouldn’t. It’s easy to dismiss it all as attention-seeking (and with some that really is what it’s about), but for a lot of women it has become a bit of a survivalistic response to this kind of pressure. Which sucks. Most of these issues are things that should matter in their own right. It shouldn’t be, “do this and then it”ll be ok for other people to take that form of mistreatment of women that you went through seriously”, or “do this and then that thing you did or supported will be legit,” or, “do that and we’ll stop harming you.” It also turns caring about how women are treated into something transactional. Meanwhile, male entertainers- sexed up or not- get to just exist, and still get support when ableism, homophobia, DV, racism, sexual harassment, assault etc. are directed at them. No need for the receipts on every good thing they’ve ever done to justify it. “What has she done” doesn’ mix well with complaining about how a woman is too feminine and sexually immodest.

  24. KateyDi says:

    She needs to find out who she is without a man! She has been with a dude since she was a young teen and makes her identity all about them but has no idea who she is outside of them. MGK is a clown and seems awful and toxic. They were wanna be edgelords who were actually high school kids at Hot Topic. Girl, work on yourself and your kids for a while. Be single!

    • Justpassingby says:

      She had been looking increasingly over-sexualized and insecure with her huge implants out and her trout pout. He had been looking increasingly odd, closed off and unhappy. This relationship was clearly not working anymore for either of them. It probably reached a point of implosion…

      • kelleybelle says:

        All I ever see with Meghan Fox is the “I’m soooo hot I can barely stand myself” look. She looks to be profoundly conceited. And she’s mostly plastic. She was cute and ruined herself with silicone. You had to know these two wouldn’t last. Now she can get the thorns removed from her ring.

  25. Isa says:

    Did she ever say what happened to her to cause a broken wrist and a concussion? Bc I feel like if it were an accident she would’ve said that.

  26. j.ferber says:

    I wish her the very best and hope she has a caring and loving support team to help her out. And f-ck that thorn ring!!! Who the hell does that?
