People reportedly chanted "Megan" until she joined him on stage.
Megan Fox and Colson Baker, a.k.a. Machine Gun Kelly, are quickly shaping up to be one of Hollywood's sexiest couples. The pair met on the set of a movie in 2020 while Fox was still married to then-husband Brian Austin Green, but the couple had already separated back in 2019. Now, over a year later, Fox and Colson are making out on red carpets and fending off engagement rumors. Here's how we got here.
March 2020: Fox and Baker met earlier in 2020 while filming Midnight In the Switchgrass, but things reportedly started heating up in March after production shut down due to COVID-19. "They've been hanging out a lot since their movie was shut down," a source told E! News in June. "The downtime has been good for them... They are intrigued by each other and having a lot of fun."
May 2020: After photos surfaced of the Fox and Baker, the actor's husband of 10 years confirmed the split. Green claimed the breakup happened after Fox returned from filming a project in late 2019. “She said, ‘I realized when I was out of the country working alone that I feel more like myself and I liked myself better during that experience and I think that might be something worth trying for me,’” he said on his podcast, per People. “I was shocked and I was upset about it, but I can’t be upset at her because she didn’t ask to feel that way. It wasn’t a choice she made, that’s the way she honestly felt. We talked about it a little more and said, ‘Let’s separate for a bit’…and so we did.” He went on to say the couple is still friends and that “We’ve had an amazing relationship and I will always love her and I know she’ll always love me.”
Later in May, Fox starred in the official Machine Gun Kelly music video for "Bloody Valentine," only fueling more rumors.
June 2020: Baker quoted a “Bloody Valentine” lyric in a tweet, writing “'I'm calling you girlfriend, what the fuck,'” and noting that “life imitated art on that one.”
The pair were later spotted holding hands in photos from June 25.
July 2020: In their first joint interview, Fox said she felt a deep connection between them by day two of filming. "I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame," she said on Lala Kent and Randall Emmett's podcast, Give Them Lala ... With Randall, per Entertainment Tonight. "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."
By July 28, the couple went Instagram official. “Waited for eternity to find you again ... 🔪💫❤️🔪,” Colson wrote on Instagram alongside a mirror selfie with Fox.
August 2020: Baker didn't hit Fox's feed until August 5. “Achingly Beautiful Boy... My heart is yours 🔪♥️🔪,” she wrote alongside another mirror selfie.
Baker basically took himself right off the market in a Thirst Tweets video for Buzzfeed. "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 fan had tweeted, to which he replied, "I'm locked in already right now. No dates for me. Probably ever."
September 2020: A source told Us Weekly that Machine Gun Kelly has met Fox's three kids. “MGK has met Megan’s kids, but Brian is pretty protective of them,” the source said. “Megan and Brian’s relationship is so up and down. They have been co-parenting in a healthy way as best as they can."
On September 23, Baker told Howard Stern, that he "didn't know what [true love] was until me and her made eye contact," according to E!. "That's when I was like, 'Whoa.'"
January 2021: Fox and Baker sparked engagement rumors in late January after she was spotted wearing a sparkly ring on that finger, but she seemingly hit back by wearing a “F*ck You” ring on Instagram Stories shortly after.
March 2021: What happens in Vegas rarely stays in Vegas. On Saturday, March 27, the actor and rapper were seen on a double date with Kourtney Kardashian and her boyfriend, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, which feels very on-brand.
May 2021: The couple made headlines when they showed up to the Billboard Music Awards looking like pure fire. See for yourself:
Baker marked the one-year anniversary of Fox saying those three important words on Twitter on May 25.
In late May, Machine Gun Kelly performed at an Indy 500 party and Megan Fox made a special appearance. According to E!, when he performed his song “I Think I’m Okay,” people were changing “Megan” until she joined him on stage. You can see a video, here.
“She came out after everyone was chanting ‘Megan’ for some time,” a source told E!. “Then she did stay on the stage in the background for the whole song.”
