MACHINE Gun Kelly was recently pictured grabbing takeout lunch with Megan Fox before her husband confirmed their split.
But who is the rapper, what movie is he in with the 34-year-old Transformers actress, and what is his net worth?
Who is Machine Gun Kelly?
Machine Gun Kelly, born Richard Colson Baker, is a 28-year-old rapper and actor.
Born in Houston Texas, he started off his career as a teen, releasing his first mixtape back in 2006.
After four more mixtapes, he was signed to Bad Boy and Interscope Records in 2011.
Since then MGK has released two albums, named Lace Up (2012) and General Admission (2015), and starred in movies such as Beyond the Lights, Roadies and Nerve.
What movie is he in with Megan Fox?
According to E! News, the rapper met Megan Fox on the set of new movie Midnight In The Switchgrass.
The star-studded serial killer movie started production in Puerto Rico in March, but production was halted over the coronavirus pandemic.
It's thought MGK became pals with Megan on set, with the pair continuing to hang out and most recently being pictured in Kelly's Aston Martin together grabbing coffee and lunch.
The pair were snapped together before Megan Fox's husband Brian Austin Green confirmed their split.
It came after The Sun exclusively revealed the on-again-off-again couple had been living apart since before lockdown.
On the MGK pics, Brian Austin Green said: "She met this guy, Colson, on set… I’ve never met him… Megan and I have talked about him.
"I trust her judgment, she’s always had really good judgment.
"I don’t want people to think her or he are villains or that I was a victim in any way."
How long have Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly been dating?
MGK and Megan have reportedly been dating since May 2020, after they met on the set of their movie together.
He later wrote on Instagram: "I’m calling you girlfriend, what the f**k. Life imitated art on that one."
In August, the rapper said he probably won't ever date again after starting his relationship with the actress.
Speaking on an episode of Thirst Tweets for Buzzfeed Celeb, MGK refused a date a fan.
The fan tweeted: “Machine gun kelly I just wanna let you know am free this sunday to go on a date just let me know if ur free sunday cause I am free and would like to take you on a date."
The 30-year-old replied turned the fan down.
“No dates for me. Probably ever."
He did not let his fans forget that he was with Megan in the video.
When one fan said: “I would let machine gun kelly suck my toes maybe.”
To which he replied: "Like I said, I’m only sucking one pair of toes."
Megan admitted she felt an immediate connection with her co-star, telling Lala Kent and Randall Emmett's podcast Give Them Lala… With Randall: "I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame."
What was his feud with Eminem in 2018?
Eminem's brand new album Kamikaze included the song Not Alike which criticises Machine Gun Kelly for commenting on his daughter Hailie.
His verse said: "But next time you don't use Tech N9ne if you wanna come at me with a sub-machine gun
"And I'm talking to you but you already know who the f**k you are, Kelly
"I don't use sublims and sure as f**k don't sneak-diss, but keep commenting on my daughter Hailie".
Eminem and MGK's feud started back in 2012 when Kelly tweeted the then 16-year-old daughter of Eminem, saying she was "hot as f**k".
After Eminem openly criticising the rapper in one of his Kamikaze track, Machine Gun Kelly was quick to release his response in a song called Rap Devil.
The lyrics said: "Took you six years and a surprise album just to come with a diss / Tough talk from a rapper paying millions for security a year
"'I think my dad's gone crazy' yeah Hailie you right / Dad's always mad cooped up in the studio yelling at the mic
"You're sober and bored, huh (I know) / About to be 46 years old, dog".
However, recently, MGK was a guest at the famous US radio show The Breakfast Show and explained that he apologised to Eminem about his words that started the feud behind the scenes.
He explained: "Look, I didn't know how old she was. I made a comment, I didn't feel like it was disrepectful, but I'm a father. I have a nine-year-old.
"I get it. Man to man? I apologised. Can I take the tweet down? Sure. But public apology? Come on man."
How much is Machine Gun Kelly worth?
MGK reportedly has a net worth of $10million.
That money comes from a successful career that includes both acting and rapping.
