A Much-Needed Timeline of Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox’s Whirlwind Relationship

They may have met on planet Earth in 2020, but Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox’s relationship is fully out of this world—that is, if you believe in twin flames and cosmic connections like they do. Since they went public, the couple has been dropping mirror selfies and Instagram Stories like it’s their job, and now reports say an engagement is on the horizon. Along the way, though, Megan’s ex Brian Austin Green has posted some shady sh*t. It’s kind of a pattern, so before you catch up on every sexy Megan-MGK selfie followed by BAG’s not-so-subtle subposting, let’s go back to when their souls first connected.

March 2020

Right before 2020 took a turn for the worst, the Jennifer’s Body and The Dirt actors met on the set of their new thriller Midnight in the Switchgrass. Filming shut down after only two weeks, but clearly, that was long enough for them to form a connection. At the time, a source told E!, “The downtime has been good for them.…They are intrigued by each other and having a lot of fun.”

April 15, 2020

Major development: Megan and Brian were seen exchanging their kids and a car seat in a Calabasas parking lot, suggesting they transitioned to co-parenting their three young sons (Noah, Bodhi, and Journey).

May 15, 2020

The Daily Mail published photos of Megan and MGK getting takeout together in Calabasas. By this time, Megan and Brian had been seen without their wedding rings, and this outing set the stage for Brian’s first cryptic Instagram post.

May 16, 2020

*Billy Eichner voice* And away we go! Brian posted a telling message on Megan’s birthday. He wrote, “Eventually butterflies get bored sitting on a flower for too long. They start feeling smothered. It’s a great big world and they want to experience it.”


A post shared by Brian Austin Green (@brianaustingreen)

Think this is a reference to Megan’s back tattoo (which says “we will all laugh at gilded butterflies”)?

You love all the nitty-gritty deets on Megan and Machine Gun Kelly. So do we. Let’s overanalyze them together. ✔️

May 18, 2020

Brian confirmed during his podcast that he and Megan split in December 2019. He explained how the end of their decade-plus entanglement happened:

At the time, Brian also said that while he hadn’t met MGK yet, Megan did talk about him and he knew that they were “friends at this point.” The Beverly Hills, 90210 actor continued, “I really don’t want Megan and I to be at odds. She’s been my best friend for 15 years, and I don’t want to lose that.”

Literally That Same Day

Uhh, a source told E! a different story and made it clear that Megan and MGK are more than just friends. They spilled, “Megan has been working on a movie with Machine Gun Kelly and gotten close to him. They are hooking up and have been for a little while. She is separated from Brian Austin Green, and they are taking time apart as a couple. She has something going on with Machine Gun Kelly that she is excited about.”

May 20, 2020

MGK finally released his much-anticipated “Bloody Valentine” music video, and Megan is alllll up in it as his onscreen girlfriend.

MGK later opened up about the creative direction for the video and basically pulled a stan Twitter move and said it was vital that she step on his face. Two months later, he told Teen Vogue, “It’s no secret. I think feet are beautiful. And I think Megan has the most beautiful feet that exist.” He went on to explain, “I was like, ‘Megan, you already know what I’m about to ask you. And she was like, ‘Yeah, I literally got a pedicure just ’cause I knew you were gonna ask me that.’ So I was like, ‘All right. Well, plop it on.’”

And now we have this GIF!

June 15, 2020

The Daily Mail published pics of Megan and MGK kissing after a night out in Sherman Oaks, which you can check out right this way. MGK later tweeted his “Bloody Valentine” lyrics and wrote, “‘I’m calling you girlfriend, what the fuck.’ Life imitated art on that one.”

“i’m calling you girlfriend, what the fuck”

life imitated art on that one. ❤️🔪

June 16, 2020

An E! source claimed that although Megan and MGK clearly have something going on, Brian isn’t ready to file for divorce just yet. They explained, “He wants to give Megan space and is hopeful they will find their way back to one another. It’s been hard to see her get back out in the dating world, but he is trying to fill his time with his kids and friends.”

July 22, 2020

Megan and MGK gave their first joint interview and spilled so much.


A post shared by Randall Emmett (@randallemmettfilms)

Talking to Lala Kent and Randall Emmett about filming Midnight in the Switchgrass, Megan said she had a feeling something would happen between her and MGK when he was cast. She explained, “Because I knew—I could feel that some wild shit 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.”

She went on to say:

Astrologist Susan Miller also appeared on the podcast and told them they are destined for marriage. Megan stated that they weren’t engaged, but when Susan said that MGK was meant to be with someone who is “happy, or it could be a scholar,” he said, “Yeah, Megan is always really happy.” *screams internally*

July 28, 2020

MGK made their relationship Instagram official!

August 3, 2020

Brian went on the Hollywood Raw podcast to say some cryptic stuff about how he found out Megan and MGK were dating and suggested that he’s going to keep everything mature. Brian revealed, “I found out in my own way. And that’s as much detail as I’ll give you on that one.…I try to not read anything or look at anything and not involve myself in it. Just keep my head down and do what I do and focus on the kids.”

However, the high road approach didn’t last long because two days later…

August 5, 2020

Megan posted a shirtless pic of MGK on her feed and wrote, “Achingly Beautiful Boy…My heart is yours. 🔪♥️🔪”


A post shared by Megan Fox (@meganfox)

Which Brian later mocked by posting pics of his sons and copying the caption.


A post shared by Brian Austin Green (@brianaustingreen)

Somebody is an achingly petty boy.

August 12, 2020

Surprise, surprise. Brian is reportedly “annoyed that [Megan] is so focused on her relationship with Machine Gun Kelly.” ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

August 14, 2020

When fans tried to thirst after MGK, he shut it down and made it clear that he’s only “sucking one pair of toes.”

True love.

August 29, 2020

Brian went on Instagram Live and implied that he and Megan could get back together because they have a mutual understanding that they’re doing their own things right now. “I never say never,” he said. “I kinda feel like people are on paths in life and sometimes your paths are together and you travel that path together and you see eye to eye and then sometimes paths do different things.”

September 10, 2020

MGK met Megan’s kids! It’s unclear if she also met his 12-year-old daughter, but they are obviously progressing in their relationship. An Us source even added, “It’s too soon [for marriage] for everyone, both of their kids and Brian included. They are definitely super into each other. MGK is obsessed with Megan.”

September 11, 2020

Now, Brian reportedly “isn’t devastated by their split anymore” and doesn’t care that they’re “flaunting their relationship publicly.” Good for him! Back to the real main characters in this news cycle!

September 18, 2020

MGK and Megan celebrated when his song started playing on the radio. Cute! But please focus on the road, y’all!

September 24, 2020

It’s official: MGK and Megan’s poetic relationship appropriately included love at first sight. At least, it did according to MGK, who spared no details when dishing about his love life to Howard Stern.

“I didn’t know what [love] was until me and her made eye contact,” he said. “That’s when I was like, Whoa.”

He went on to talk about how he would “just sit there and hope” something between them would happen on the set of Midnight in the Switchgrass.

“It was my first experience with being open to love and stuff like that,” he added. “I definitely wasn’t set up to believe that that’s something that could ever exist.”

September 30, 2020

The artistic collabs just keep coming with these two. Megan made a short cameo in MGK’s new music video for “Drunk Face,” where they kiss, because of course they do.

November 17, 2020

Machine Gun Kelly is Nylon’s latest cover star, and in his cover interview, Megan Fox took the opportunity to gush about their “once-in-a-lifetime thing,” calling it a connection of “mythic proportions.”

“Loving him is like being in love with a tsunami or a forest fire,” she said. “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.”

A post shared by NYLON (@nylonmag)

After Megan and MGK met during Midnight in the Switchgrass, Megan told Nylon she knew immediately that they had a connection. “I looked into his eyes [and] I felt the most pristine, most gentle, most pure spirit. My heart shattered immediately and I just knew that I was fucked.”

November 23, 2020

Megan and MGK make their first red carpet appearance as a couple at the AMAs. And surprise—Megan has the teeeeeniest tattoo on her collarbone dedicated to MGK that says “el pistolero.” Yep, that means “gunfighter” in English.

December 3, 2020

New reports claim Megan’s anxious to get her divorce proceedings with BAG out the way so she and MGK can properly start their future together. “Megan has planned to file for divorce for a while. She and Brian already agreed to a custody plan so Megan hopes the divorce will happen quickly and be uncomplicated,” a source close to Megan told People.

“They are making plans for the future and want to live together. Megan has been taking things slowly, though, to make sure her sons are doing okay,” the source added. “They are getting to know him now.”

December 19, 2020

MGK is hearing wedding bells! According to an Entertainment Tonight source, “MGK and Megan make each other laugh and that’s a big thing for Megan. They keep each other smiling…MGK totally sees marriage in his future with Megan and friends could one hundred percent see them getting engaged within the next year.”

Megan? Yeaaah, she’s not in a rush to tie any knots. The source added that she “doesn’t think about getting engaged [or] married and she doesn’t put a timeline in place and it’s not something that really crosses her mind.”

January 1, 2021

Megan and MGK share the cutest kiss after he completes his performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. *cries single-woman tears*

January 28, 2021

Megan and MGK finally reach a major celebrity couple milestone—engagement rumors! After Megan is seen out and about wearing a massive ring on her wedding finger (peep the pics here), fans naturally start speculating if a wedding is on the horizon.

Megan and MGK keep quiet…but considering sources have said MGK has no issue with wifing Megan up (see: December 19 on this timeline), let’s not be surprised if it pans out.

January 30, 2021

Sike! Turns out the Megan and MGK engagement rumors aren’t true after all (*sobs*). According to a People source, Megan and MGK are “very serious and plan on spending the future together. There will be an engagement at some point, but they are not engaged now.” The source adds, “Megan needs her divorce to be finalized before she can fully move on. She is very happy though.”

To make it crystal clear, Megan hops on Instagram to post a Story showing off a ring on her wedding finger that says “Fuck You.” That’s one way to silence gossipers!

February 2, 2021

Another day, another update about BAG being salty about Megan and MGK’s relationship. Reports say Megan would like to get started on her happily-ever-after with MGK, but Brian’s kind of dragging out their divorce.

“Brian is definitely not making it easy or doing things quickly,” a source tells E! News, adding, “Megan would like to wrap it up and get it finished as quickly as possible, but Brian is not exactly working with her on that.” 😬

The source adds Megan is “very serious with MGK and sees him as her soul mate and life partner. They plan to be together forever. She wants the divorce to be done with so she can move on and move ahead.”

February 11, 2021

MGK is in the Valentine’s Day spirit and decides to sell a sweatshirt on his website of him and Megan sharing a smooch. It’s almost too good to be true, but if you feel so inclined to purchase, you can do so below:

March 26, 2021

MGK’s ex Sommer Ray hits the couple with a round of cheating rumors. 😬 During an appearance on Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast (via Us Weekly), Sommer reveals she used to date MGK but “never had sex with him.…I make you wait at least three months. I have to make sure that you’re someone good to me. So Colson just never passed the test.”

She then adds, “I don’t really feel bad saying that because he did kind of cheat on me with Megan Fox,” and says MGK actually extended an invite for her to go to Puerto Rico. (MGK and Megan were filming their movie Midnight in the Switchgrass during their PR trip.)

“I waited in the hotel the whole time while he’s filming with her and I’m not really thinking anything of it. I thought she was older and had kids and was married and stuff,” she continues. “I think they’re a cute couple.…I’m not mad about it. I want them [to have] the best.”

May 23, 2021

Sooo those Sommer Ray allegations didn’t seem to put a dent in Megan and MGK’s relationship at all, because they show up—and OUT—to the Billboard Music Awards and do the absolute most with their PDA. I mean, it’s literally tongue-out, hand-on-the-crotch level of inappropriate for a red carpet, but hey, they’re in love!

June 17, 2021

(Not) Surprise(d): Megan and MGK “are pretty inseparable” at the moment, according to Entertainment Tonight. There’s even a chance Megan will join MGK for his Tickets to My Downfall tour in early September. “Assuming all continues to go well, it’s looking likely that [Megan] will join him on tour,” a source tells the outlet. “Not full-time, but you can expect her to be around, and there’s no question about that.”

MGK even has babies on the brain, which, !!!! “MGK would love to start a family with Megan someday, but right now doesn’t seem to be the time in terms of scheduling,” ET’s source adds. “As far as engagement goes, it is likely that this will happen sooner than later and it has been a topic of conversation without question.”

Just don’t expect a baby or engagement to happen anytime soon, because Megan’s and MGK’s schedules are starting to get super busy again, so they just want to make sure that the timing is right since it would be a big step for both them and their families.”

July 6, 2021

BAG posts a loved-up picture with his new GF Sharna Burgess with this (maybe passive aggressive) caption: “It’s been a really long time since I’ve been with someone I can truly share life with. ❤️” Sharna wrote in the comments, “There’s no one else I could ever imagine sharing it with. I love you.” And then Megan also wrote in the comments: “Grateful for Sharna 💜.” The Internet predictably exploded: Was it a subtle diss? Was she just taking the high road? Are they all actually getting along? Someone tell me what it means!!

July 7, 2021

Megan is InStyle’s newest cover girl, and MGK actually shows up on-set to support his GF. Oh, and gives some to-die-for quotes about his relationship with Megan in the corresponding interview, of course.

When said interviewer asks MGK to describe Megan in a word, he says, “She’s like the earth. When it’s summer, it’s the hottest summer. When it’s winter, it’s the most amazing chill. In the fall and spring, it’s a beautiful transition. She is unlike any person I have ever met in my life.” BRB, crying!

But if that wasn’t enough, he adds, “I just want people to understand this is real. I don’t think people get the opportunity to believe in real, great love, and that’s what we have together.”

Meanwhile, Megan gets real about the hate she receives for being slightly older than MGK. “The fact that he’s four years younger than me and people want to act like I’m dating a younger man. He’s 31, and I’m 35. Granted, he’s lived like he’s 19 his whole life, but he isn’t 19. No one would blink twice if George Clooney was dating someone four years younger,” she says. “Four years? Go fuck yourself. We would have been in high school together. That’s so ridiculous that women are treated that way.”

July 31, 2021

Megan is absolutely ~glowing~ at Lollapalooza in Chicago: MGK is performing on stage, and she might as well have hearts coming out of her eyes. It’s…the most adorbs?

August 30, 2021

Megan posts some photos of her running errands—in the most intense sexy-amazing green cutout top showing off her whole stomach—jokingly captioning it, “This is how I go to Erewhon now. Let’s talk about it.” MGK, who spotted in one of the pics that her lock screen was a pic of him, immediately wrote back: “What aisle are you gonna be in? I like your lock screen.” Now that’s love.

September 12, 2021

The two hit the VMAs red carpet together, and Megan wore a *very* sheer dress (custom-made by Mugler). Also apparently the naked dress was MGK’s idea. “He was like, ‘You’re gonna be naked tonight.’ I was like, ‘Whatever you say, Daddy!'” she dished while the two were walking the red carpet.

Megan’s pal Kourtney Kardashian and her BF at the time (now fiancée) Travis Barker, MGK’s drummer and producer, also attended, so (naturally) Megan and Kourtney took to the stage to intro them as their “future baby daddies”:

💀 @kourtneykardash @meganfox #VMAs pic.twitter.com/4unO1L7U8D

And then they all had a double date afterwards, which I kind of love (the most important deet I need you to know: Megan changed out of her naked dress).

October 11, 2021

British GQ sits down with the couple and it is jam-packed with tidbits about their relationship. First, there’s the cover, with Megan holding a gun to MGK’s…you know!!


A post shared by Megan Fox (@meganfox)

Then, there’s the very beginning of the story, where they’re giving each other “The darkest fairytale” tattoos (one of the first texts they exchanged). There’s the fact that they’re working on a super-secret film project together. There’s the story of how they met at a party, where Megan was like, “You smell like weed,” MGK responded, “I am weed,” and then vanished. They say they literally couldn’t see each other’s faces in that first moment, and Megan says it’s because “I think we weren’t allowed to see each other yet. We weren’t supposed to run into each other that night, so our souls, our spirit guides, were luring us away from each other, because you literally had no face, like that thing from Spirited Away. It is hard to see his face in general, but really he had no face that night.”

There’s the story of their first kiss, which was them just putting their lips in front of each other and breathing in and out (…k…). There’s that video where Megan asks what her greatest talent is and MGK’s mind immediately goes to a very dirty place. Then there’s this moment, thanks to MGK: “It should be light, but also we go to hell with each other. It’s ecstasy and agony for sure…I don’t want people to think anything’s perfect with us. I didn’t say it was the darkest fairy tale for no reason. God help you if you would’ve met us last Saturday.”

On Insta, Megan listed the highlights of their relationship. Among other things, it includes (and I quote): “feverish obsession, guns, addiction, lots of blood, therapy, tantric night terrors, binding rituals, and the kind of sex that would make Lucifer clutch his rosary.” So, there’s that!

November 3, 2021

Someone tells Entertainment Tonight that MGK “has been telling friends that he’s planning to propose” to Megan. “They’re very in love and beyond obsessed with each other,” the source adds. “They are ready to take this next step in their relationship.” TBH, this kind of makes sense also because their pals Travis and Kourtney just got engaged. So for all you fans of the couple, now the ring-watch officially begins (even though, as discussed, we’ve been doing it this whole time).

And that brings us up to date! The next time Megan and MGK get their make-out on in a public place (or debut a special special piece of jewelry), you can bet we’ll keep you updated.
