AceShowbiz - Machine Gun Kelly says he was left bloodied by a champagne flute after trying to clink it in a toast. During an after-party at Catch Steakhouse following his Madison Square Garden concert in New York City on Tuesday night, June 28, the "Rap Devil" hitmaker shouted "I don't give a s**t" before smashing the glass against his face.
The 32-year-old rapper, who was born Colson Baker, has now admitted he "feels like s**t" after it left him with a gash above his eye. When appearing on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on Wednesday night, June 29, a cut could still be seen above his eyebrow as he chatted with the 48-year-old host.
MGK told comedian Meyers he didn't have a fork to make the traditional gesture of clinking it against the champagne flute, so he decided to smash the glass into his head to grab the crowd's attention. He said, "You know when you clink a champagne glass with a fork to kind of (get people's attention)? Yeah, well, I didn't have a fork, so I just clinked it on my head."
Meyers joked, "You know, in medicine, that call that 'asking for it.' " MGK concurred by saying, "Yeah, so I had a serious case of that last night." Despite admitting he was left feeling "like s**t," MGK appeared in high spirits on the show, dressed in a trademark garish outfit of grey sparkling trousers and a pink satin shirt.
On Tuesday, MGK was seen leaving the steakhouse after-party with his fiance Megan Fox, holding her hand before they headed home. The incident comes after MGK revealed he attempted suicide on the phone to the "Transformers" actress. He admitted he put a shotgun in his mouth on the call during a paranoid meltdown and only avoided taking his life as a shell got jammed in the barrel.
Speaking in his new Hulu documentary "Machine Gun Kelly's Life in Pink", MGK said about phoning Fox while she was shooting a film, "I'm yelling on the phone and like the barrel is in my mouth. And I go to cock the shotgun and the bullet, as it comes back up, the shell just gets jammed. Megan's like dead silent."
MGK added support from Megan and his 12-year-old daughter Casie made him realize he needed to get help and "kick the drugs for real this time."
