The Machine Gun Kelly scam controversy explained

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s relationship really was something out of a fairy tale…sort of. For one, the couple has the whole cosmic love affair to themselves. Fox – who met Kelly on the set of her 2020 film Midnight in the Switchgrass – has spoken about how she knew instantly he was the one. “The first time I looked into his eyes, I thought… I know you. I’ve known you so many times, in so many different forms, in so many different lives,” the actor told The Washington Post. Fox went on to note that their electrical chemistry was surprising, adding that she “didn’t expect it to be like, ‘God, you’re my soulmate’ straight away.”

Fox and Kelly haven’t been shy about sharing their love with the world, either. From exchanging French kisses on the red carpet at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards to drinking vials of each other’s blood to celebrate their engagement, they might be the only pairing to give Kravis a fight for her money, PDA- wise. And while some fans have celebrated their otherworldly love affair, Fox and Kelly certainly haven’t been without controversy. For example, Fox was technically still married to her then-husband Brian Austin Green when she first connected with Kelly. Green has since found love with dancer Shana Burgess, so there’s no ill will between the former couple, but it appears Kelly wasn’t single when he fell in love with Fox either.

Did MGK cheat on his girlfriend with Megan Fox?

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox officially took to Instagram in July 2020, but the timing was misleading, according to rapper Sommer Ray’s ex. In a 2021 episode of Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast, the influencer revealed that she was dating Kelly when he was hitting the hook with Fox. “I never had sex with [Kelly]. I’ll make you wait at least three months,” Ray explained, adding, “He kind of cheated on me with Megan Fox if you look at the timeline.” From Ray’s point of view, she has his “Midnight in the Switchgrass” co-star as Threat because Ray “thought she was older and had kids and was married”.

Later, when Kelly blamed his inability to see Ray during his music video shoot for “Bloody Valentine” to “COVID restrictions,” Ray realized he was really filming with Fox. Still, Rays’ feelings weren’t too hurt. “I think even if I had sex with him, he would still have sex with Megan,” she mused.

However, Ray was upset at how Kelly blew up on the end of their relationship. In April 2021, he tweeted: “She came and picked up all her stuff on my birthday. Nice.” Ray shot back, “Oh really? I thought she came to bring you your birthday presents. #fakenews.” The whole thing prompted Kelly to apologize on Twitter, writing that he “shouldn’t have tweeted personal matters.”

MGK’s shady behavior with Sommer Ray

Before she hooked up with Megan Fox, Machine Gun Kelly was linked to several other celebs, including Amber Rose, Halsey, Kate Beckinsale and Sommer Ray, per Us Weekly. As for Ray, Kelly reportedly started seeing the influencer just before he made things official with Fox. In March 2020, he retweeted pictures of him cuddling with Ray, which is why people were suspicious when the rapper announced he was dating Fox in June.

This timing is consistent with Ray’s claim that she typically waits three months before becoming intimate with anyone. If Ray and Kelly had started dating before March, Ray would have been ready to make that move in May, and by that time Kelly was in touch with Fox. In hindsight, Ray said she could look back on her time with Kelly and see all the red flags. “He started turning off his phone before bed and I was like, ‘Why are you doing that?’ and he’d be like, ‘Oh, I heard your phone vibrating is hurting you…’ and no, it was because Megan wouldn’t call,” she told Impaulsive.

Despite the way Ray claims their relationship was over, she holds no grudges. “I think they make a cute couple,” she said on the Impaulsive podcast. “I’m not mad about it. I want her [to have] the best.” Now that Fox and Kelly are happily engaged, Ray may be able to find some closure in the fact that she and the musician weren’t meant to be together.
