Don’t Worry, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly Didn’t Drink Enough Blood to Get Sick

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly haven’t revealed any wedding plans. But the newly-engaged pair is still making headlines. Fox and Kelly got together in the spring of 2020. They developed their intense connection after working together on the movie Midnight in the Switchgrass. The pair quickly became media darlings, gaining attention for rocking daring outfits and never shying away from expressing their love for each other on red carpets. 

One particular topic dominated the tabloids after they got engaged in January 2022. Fox admitted she and Kelly drank each other’s blood at the scene of their proposal. Recently, Fox opened up to Glamour about her relationship with Kelly, spilling all the tea about how much blood they actually drink and why.

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly each shared a post on Instagram after their January 2022 engagement. Fans found themselves captivated by their announcement, not least because of Fox’s admission that the two decided to drink each other’s blood

In her Instagram post, Fox wrote, “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.”

Megan Fox recently opened up about her ‘ritual’ of drinking Machine Gun Kelly’s blood

Fox’s post raised questions amongst fans, specifically about the blood-drinking. In an April 2022 interview with Glamour, Fox clarified her controversial statement.

“So, I guess to drink each other’s blood might mislead people or people are imagining us with goblets and we’re like Game of Thrones, drinking each other’s blood,” she began.”It’s just a few drops,” the actor explained. However, “we do consume each other’s blood on occasion for ritual purposes only.” 

She described her interest in tarot, astrology, and metaphysical practices. The actor added she only involves Kelly in those rituals “for a reason.” “And it is controlled,” Fox added. “It’s like, ‘Let’s shed a few drops of blood and each drink it.'” 

However, her fiance is a bit more enthusiastic about the practice. “He’s much more haphazard and hectic and chaotic, where he’s willing to just cut his chest open with broken glass and be like, ‘Take my soul.'”

Can you get sick from drinking a few drops of blood?

Some fans might have justifiable health concerns about any rituals involving blood consumption. However, experts confirm that drinking a couple of drops of human blood isn’t likely to cause any issues. According to Healthline, the body processes drinking blood the same as water. It goes into the stomach, the small intestine, and finally into the bloodstream.

Drinking large quantities of blood might lead to mild issues such as an upset stomach. It is probably safe to drink up to a couple of teaspoons of someone else’s blood without experiencing any adverse side effects. Therefore, any small amount of blood that Fox and Kelly are consuming during their at-home rituals isn’t likely to affect them negatively. 

It is likely, however, to continue to cause intense interest amongst pop culture fans. Some haven’t seen anything like the romance between Fox and Kelly since Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie rocked vials of each other’s blood on the red carpet.
