Is Megan Fox dating Machine Gun Kelly? Actress seen with rapper amid rumors of split from husband Brian Austin
At a time when most of the celebrities have chosen to ride out the coronavirus quarantine with their spouses or significant others, Megan Fox was spotted grabbing takeout with rapper Machine Gun Kelly in the Calabasas neighborhood of Los Angeles on Friday, May 15, leading to speculations that they might be dating.
In photos obtained by Daily Mail, the 'Bad Things' rapper, whose real name is Richard Colson Baker, was seen giving the 'Transformers' actress a ride to go get some food before dropping her back home. The pair will be starring in an upcoming movie 'Midnight in the Switchgrass.' Shooting for the film began in Puerto Rico in March but production was shut down due to the pandemic.
Rumors of a budding romance between the two costars come after rumors that Fox had called quits with her husband Brian Austin Green for a second time as the latter was seen several times without his wedding ring on. Speculations of probable tension brewing in their relationship started going around when the pair were seen seemingly swapping their three sons in a parking lot in April. Moreover, the couple has decided not to quarantine together. The 'Jennifer's Body' actress appeared to be living in Calabasas while the '90210' star is staying in Malibu.
Fox and Green met in 2004 when the latter guest-starred on her show 'Hope & Faith'. She was 18 at the time and he was 30. He had just called off his engagement with his 'Beverly Hills, 90210' co-star, Vanessa Marcil.
The pair eventually got engaged in 2006. But things like their career and the age gap between them posed hurdles in their relationship. While Green continued to solely work on the small screen with one-off appearances, Fox's career took off with major films like the 'Transformers' franchise and 'Jennifer’s Body'. The actor admitted to TV Guide in 2008, "We have more time away from each other now than we’d like.”
In February 2009, the pair called off their marriage. Justifying her decision at the time, Fox explained, “Marriage isn’t a realistic goal for someone who is 23, that’s all. I just wanna concentrate on becoming a better person before I try to commit to being someone else’s wife."
The pair clearly succeeded in smoothening the creases in their relationship as they became re-engaged in June 2010 and just two weeks later, they wed in a secret ceremony in Hawaii. "We are even more committed to each other, and we always have been," Fox told Us Weekly at the time. "I am more in love with him now than I was in the beginning."
They had their first child, Noah Shannon in September 2012 and then their second, Bodhi Ransom, in February 2014. However, troubles in their relationship were not over as there were rumors of separation started floating in August 2015. In the same month, Fox filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.
Eight months after her filing, there were reports of Fox being pregnant with her third child. For a time she teased her fans on Instagram by posting a collage of photos of herself with her former costars Shia LaBeouf, Will Arnett, and Jake Johnson, with the hashtag “#Notthefather." She later confirmed that Green was the father. In June 2016 Fox and Green confirmed that they were “totally back together”. Their third son, Journey River, was born two months later.
In April 2019 Fox filed papers in Los Angeles to dismiss her divorce case against Green. In February, earlier this year, that the couple said that they were done having children. “The kids I have right now are fine,” Green said. “It’s enough! I have four kids, three young kids.”
