AceShowbiz - Machine Gun Kelly has recalled a moment when he accidentally hurt himself when trying to impress Megan Fox. In a new interview, the "Bloody Valentine" rapper revealed that he got stitches after stabbing his hand with a knife.
When making an appearance in the Thursday, December 2 episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", the 31-year-old rapper shared how he injured his hand. At the time, he had just begun dating Fox and in order to impress her he decided to do a trick at home with a knife gifted to him by his pal Travis Barker.
Kelly admitted he threw the knife up in the air, but instead of watching it, he watched Fox. "That was from when a knife stuck in [it]," the "Midnight in the Switchgrass" actor told Jimmy Fallon as he showed the TV host the scar. "Cause, you know how you throw it up, and you're supposed to catch it? I looked at [Fox], and I was like, 'Check this out.' And I was like, 'Ugh!' "
"The next morning, as soon as she left, I was like, 'Yo, I need stitches real quick,' " Kelly remembered. The "Rap Devil" hitmaker went on to conclude, "It was just a bad night."
Kelly's story came after Fallon said that Pete Davidson told him that Kelly had bruised his coccyx after the two fell off the stage at "Saturday Night Live" during his own appearance on the show. The "Bad Things" spitter then explained that his coccyx was injured before he accidentally stabbed himself.
Kelly and Fox reportedly began seeing each other while the two were filming "Midnight in the Switchgrass" in March 2020. Randall Emmett, the director of the film, opened up about the chemistry he noticed between the actors on set.
"As a director, I felt, 'Wow, there's some real magic happening there,' but I didn't see any more than that," Emmett explained. "They're both incredible actors, and their chemistry was flawless. I was just looking at them and thinking, 'Wow, that was a great scene,' but didn't really think about anything else."
More recently, Kelly and Fox were spotted on a shopping spree with their children in Greece after they sparked breakup speculation. Rumors of their split emerged following Kelly's 2021 American Music Awards appearance without the "Transformers" beauty.
