Does Megan Fox's ring REALLY have thorns? Fiance MGK wants it to be 'painful to remove'
'The bands are actually thorns. So if she tries to take it off, it hurts,' says Machine Gun Kelly about Megan Fox's engagement ring
Actress Megan Fox and singer Machine Gun Kelly got engaged on January 11, and the Internet congratulated them on their special occasion. Kelly proposed to Fox under a banyan tree where they once "asked for magic" and the rest is history.
Fox posted a video of the proposal on her Instagram account and captioned it, "In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree. We asked for magic. We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma. Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him. And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes.… and then we drank each other’s blood. 1.11.22," with a 'sparkles' emoji.
Kelly posted a video of the ring with the caption, "Yes, in this life and every life. beneath the same branches we fell in love under, i brought her back to ask her to marry me. i know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love. 1-11-2022," and added the 'ring' and the 'sparkles' emoji.
In an interview with Vogue, Kelly revealed details about the engagement ring. "It’s a thoroughbred Colombian emerald, with no treatment. It was just carved into the teardrop, straight out of the mine. And the diamond was directly from Stephen. The concept is that the ring can come apart to make two rings. When it’s together, it’s held in place by a magnet. So you see how it snaps together? And then it forms an obscure heart," he said.
He further stated that "The bands are actually thorns. So if she tries to take it off, it hurts." When the Vogue interviewer said, "That’s very nice," Kelly replied, "Love is pain."
Fox mentioned in the caption of her Instagram post that they "drank each other's blood," which sparked a flurry of peculiar reactions, theories, and tweets on the Internet.
