Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly: What They've Said About Their Relationship
Fox, 34, and the Canadian rapper, 30, were arm-in-arm at the American Music Awards over the weekend, where Fox lovingly introduced his performance at the show.
Here's everything the two have said about each other.
1. Megan Fox Calls Machine Gun Kelly Her "Twin Flame"
Fox and Kelly, whose birth name is Colson Baker, gave their first joint interview in July on the Give Them Lala ... With Randall podcast where they spoke about their instant connection after meeting on the set of their upcoming movie.
"I was like, 'Who is going to play this role?' And he was like, 'Oh, we just got Machine Gun Kelly,' and immediately, I was like, 'Uh oh,'" the Transformers star recalled.
She continued: "Because I knew, I could feel that some wild s— was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn't yet sure what. I just felt it like, deep in my soul -- that something was going to come from that."
Fox went on to share that she felt an instant connection with the 30-year-old "Bloody Valentine" rapper once they began working together.
"I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame," she said. "Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time. So we're actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away."
Kelly opened up about his own mindset when he met Fox, saying he wasn’t as confident as the actress about their chemistry, explaining that he was "waiting outside on my trailer steps, every day ... to catch one glimpse of eye contact."
"She would have to get out of her car. There were like, five steps between the car and the trailer," he said. "And I would just sit there and hope."
2. Making It Instagram Official
About a week after their first interview together, the couple made their relationship Instagram official.
The two posed for a black and white mirror selfie which the rapper shared on his Instagram account.
"Waited for eternity to find you again ... 🔪💫❤️🔪," Kelly wrote in the caption.
Fox stuck her tongue out in the photo as she wore a black bralette and black high-rise sweatpants. Kelly's arm was around the actress as he held the phone up and also stuck his tongue out while wearing a black graphic T-shirt and black pants.
3. "My Heart Is Yours"
Fox followed up Kelly’s Instagram post with one of her own, the first she shared of the two on her Instagram account.
In another mirror selfie, the two posed in towels as the actress wrapped her arm around the rapper’s waist.
"Achingly Beautiful Boy... My heart is yours," Fox wrote alongside the picture, adding two knife emojis and a black heart emoji, similar to the ones Kelly added to his own post.
4. Together in Lockdown
In August, the rapper shared that he and Fox are “locked in” while appearing on an episode of Thirst Tweets for BuzzFeed Celeb, in which he read out tweets written about him and reacted to them.
“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,” one of the posts said.
“I’m locked in already right now,” Kelly responded.
“No dates for me. Probably ever," he then added, alluding to his future with Fox.
He also referenced this relationship status later on in the video. “I would let machine gun kelly suck my toes maybe,” stated a fan tweet, to which he replied: “Like I said, I’m only sucking one pair of toes.”
5. First-Time Love
Kelly kept the swoon-worthy quotes going in September, when he admitted on The Howard Stern Show that he fell in love for the first time when he met Fox.
"I didn't know what [love] was until me and her made eye contact," Kelly said. "That's when I was like, 'Whoa.'"
"After I made the big chunk of the album, I did fall in love for the first time," Kelly revealed. "That was my first experience with being open to love and stuff like that. I definitely wasn't set up to believe that that's something that could ever exist."
When asked by Stern if it was love at first sight for the two of them, Kelly said, "Yeah, for sure."
Kelly added the only downside to the relationship was the constant media attention, saying, "My house isn't gated, you know? so that's the one problem. Everyone knows where my house is, so it's like this odd moment, where I was kinda living my life super normal and the next day, there were paparazzi outside my house every day."
6. "Once in a Lifetime"
Earlier this month, Fox added her own sweet sentiments to the mix.
Speaking to NYLON alongside her beau for his recent cover story, the actress called her relationship with the rapper-turned-punk star a "once in a lifetime thing."
Describing that they have a connection of "mythic proportions," Fox noted, "Loving him is like being in love with a tsunami or a forest fire."
"The intensity of merging with him is just overwhelming, and the threat it poses is so powerful but so beautiful that you have no choice to surrender with reverence and with gratitude," she added.
Detailing that she first met the musician while filming the upcoming movie Midnight in the Switchgrass, Fox also shared the emotions she felt when she first connected with Kelly.
"I looked into his eyes [and] I felt the most pristine, most gentle, most pure spirit," she shared. "My heart shattered immediately and I just knew that I was f-----."
7. Red Carpet Debut
Days after the interview dropped, Fox and Kelly officially stepped out as a couple for the first time at the AMAs. The two cuddled up on the red carpet before the show and Fox later took the stage to introduce her new love.
"Once in a lifetime, magic can happen. But this next performer, we've all been under his spell since his debut in 2012," Fox said before Kelly hit the stage in a pink-tinged outfit for a pumped-up all-pink performance of his tracks "Bloody Valentine" and "My Ex's Best Friend."
