Machine Gun Kelly turned heads when he pulled a fake sword at a photographer on the red carpet.
Kelly, 33, “politely asked not to be photographed” when he arrived with fiancé Megan Fox bee Darren Dzienciol‘s Pop Icons Halloween Party on Friday, October 27, at a private estate in Beverly Hills, a source exclusively shared We weekly. “They didn’t want to walk the red carpet, but it was the only way in,” the insider explained.
But when a photographer took a photo, things got even worse. “[He] immediately unsheathed his sword and threatened the photographer,” the insider said Us. (The “Bloody Valentine” singer carried a replica of the Samurai sword used in the film Quentin Tarantino‘s 2003 film Death Bill Vol. 1for his costume as Uma Thurman‘s character, The Bride.)
Kelly “confronted” the photographer with the sword and said, “I told you, no photos, a hole.”
“He basically told him to put his camera down and got in his face,” the source added.
After the “humiliating” incident, Fox, 37, “just wanted to get in.” For his part, Kelly ultimately “walked away” after the “brief heated argument.”
According to the insider, Fox was already in a “bad mood” and didn’t want to go to another event after the Casamigos Halloween party earlier in the evening. “She said she was going to stay for a limited time, but she didn’t want to party,” the source said Usadding that she didn’t want to be seen in “the same costume” at multiple events.
Fox channeled the Kill Bill franchise for an evening with schoolgirl assassin Gogo Yubari, played by Chiaki Kuriyama. The Transformers star wore a black wig, white platform boots with knee-high socks and blood painted across her cheeks.
Both Fox and Kelly raised eyebrows with their costume choices, which apparently violated SAG-AFTRA strike rules. Despite the guild – which has been walking the picket lines since July – asking members to only “dress up as characters from unaffected content” and “not post photos of costumes inspired by affected content on social media,” it has Fox uploaded a photo of himself in the Kill Bill dress Friday via Instagram, with the official SAG-AFTRA account tagged as her caption.
Friday’s sword incident isn’t the first time Fox has been caught in the crossfire during a confrontation involving her husband-to-be. The Jennifer’s body The star seemingly had to hold Kelly back while he and the UFC fighter Conor McGregor got into an argument at the 2021 MTV VMAs. In July, the couple was at the Orange Country Fair in California when they got into a physical altercation with a stranger. As they left a ride, Fox found herself in the middle of a brawl and was pushed against a railing as the unknown man tried to punch her fiancé. (Kelly and Fox both left the attraction unharmed.)
Two months earlier, All American Rejects was frontman Tyson Ritter recalled a heated moment he reportedly had with Kelly during an episode of the “Tuna on Toast With Stryker” podcast. Ritter, 39, co-starred with Fox in the film Johnny & Clyde and went to her trailer to pitch ideas for their characters.
‘I am going there [to Megan’s trailer] and there her husband is with her. This Colson guy you know as Machine Gun Kelly. I call him ‘Pistol Pete,'” Ritter said during the May episode, noting that he asked Fox if he could put his fingers in her mouth during her character’s death scene — an idea he claimed Kelly wasn’t happy with was along.
“Colson just goes from zero to anger and [was] super angry,” he said. “He was super disappointed that I asked if I could put my fingers in Megan Fox’s mouth and I knew she was there and he just went ballistic. He went a little [into] maniac mode.”
Kelly and Fox – who began their romance in May 2020 – have had their fair share of ups and downs as a couple. A source said this exclusively earlier this month Us that the ‘twin flames’ still don’t have a wedding date on the books.
“MGK and Megan were [both] in wedding planning mode when they first got together, but things have stalled,” the insider shared Us, adding that while they are “still very much together,” they are not “excited to get back to work” planning the day. That’s why “no wedding date has been chosen and they are no longer actively looking at locations,” the source explains.
Kelly and Fox met on the set of Midnight in the Switchgrass in 2020. Shortly after Brian Austin Green confirmed his divorce from Fox. (Green, 50, and Fox were married for nearly 10 years and share sons Noah, 11, Bodhi, 9, and Journey, 7. They finalized their divorce in February 2022.)
In January 2022, Kelly and Fox confirmed their engagement after going through “hell together” during their relationship.
