Megan Fox got caught in the crossfire while enjoying a date night with Machine Gun Kelly. Megan, 37, and MGK (Colson Baker, 33) attended the Orange County Fair on July 20, per TMZ, when things went south after the two got off a ride. In footage captured by @arianamyaa on TikTok, MGK and Megan’s bodyguard rushed past them to deal with someone that was behind Megan. The bodyguard inadvertently shoved Megan into the metal barricade, but MGK swooped in to pull her out of the fray.

As to what happened, the onlooker claimed that “some random guy” tried to punch MGK. MGK seemed to be in good shape as he walked Megan away, and their security guard soon joined them.
The incident invoked memories of the 2021 MTV Music Video Awards when Conor McGregor took a shot at MGK while Megan was in the “Emo Girl” singer’s arms. Footage of the event, taking place ahead on the event’s red carpet, seemed to show Conor going ballistic while clashing with MGK’s crew and his own entourage. TMZ later reported that Conor wanted to say hello to MGK and extended his hand to the musician. MGK supposedly said something Conor couldn’t hear, and MGK’s security pushed the MMA fighter away.
Conor wasn’t happy with the brushoff, and he went wild. However, cooler heads prevailed, and the two enjoyed the rest of the night without incident. Conor even invited MGK to see his next fight. He downplayed the rumor of a beef, telling TMZ, “I don’t even know the guy! I don’t him. Who is he? Telling me he’s been at the fights? Megan [Fox has] been at the fights for years. So, I know Megan. I don’t know the guy.”
In happier news, MGK and Megan have resumed their wedding plans after a rough patch in their relationship. After undergoing therapy together, they’ve reportedly rebuilt their trust and resumed talking about getting married again. The two got engaged in January 2022 after less than two years of dating. “There haven’t been any deposits put down,” claimed Us Weekly, “but they are both on board again and are excited to start planning the new version of their wedding.”
