Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly met on the set of ‘Midnight in the Switchgrass’

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox got together in early 2020 while working on the film Midnight in the Switchgrass. They had met briefly at a party years prior, but they didn’t connect until they were on set together. The musician later revealed that he only took the movie role so he could get to know Fox. 

Fox was in the process of divorcing Brian Austin Green, with whom she shares three children. Machine Gun Kelly has one daughter with an ex-girlfriend. 

Fox appeared in Machine Gun Kelly’s May 2020  “Bloody Valentine” music video, and the two stars quickly became inseparable. The actor called the musician her “twin flame” and said their relationship is “handled for us by our ancestors and the spirits and energies that are watching over us.”

Megan Fox said Machine Gun Kelly ‘belonged to the streets’

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox are committed to each other now, but according to the actor, there was a time when the guitarist wasn’t monogamous in their relationship. 

In a July 2021 interview with InStyle, Fox explained the beginning of her romance with the musician (whose real name is Colson Baker). 

“One of the first things I did with Colson after we did that movie together, I was back here for a couple of weeks, and we were seeing each other but not dating exclusively by any means – on his end,” Fox said. “I only date one person at a time, but he belonged to the streets. That’s for sure.”

She said they fell in love around the time she starred in his “Bloody Valentine” music video. “He asked me to do his music video, and in one of the scenes, he was totally naked in a red sauna with nothing but duct tape on,” Fox described. “And that was fun. And we’ve been in love ever since.”
