Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly have been teasing that they’re a thing since at least Month 3 of COVID-19 quarantine. Things have progressed in all the normal celebrity new couple ways: being seen together in a motor vehicle, kissing near photographers, and a candid admission of foot worship. But there was one key element missing that kept Megan and MGK from official consideration as a celebrity couple, and that’s that they had yet to bust out some PDA in an Instagram post. Well, it looks like we can finally confirm their relationship status update.
On Friday, director Randall Emmett posted a picture featuring some of the cast from his upcoming film, Midnight in the Switchgrass. According to Megan’s soon-to-be ex-husband Brian Austin Green, Megan and MGK met on the set of Midnight in the Switchgrass earlier this year. Filming of Midnight was put on hiatus in March, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Speaking of coronavirus, I reached for the nearest tube of Clorox wipes when I saw that picture above. Seven people barely half an inch apart, and NOT A MASK IN SIGHT?! But it’s okay According to Randall, the cast has reunited in Puerto Rico for filming, and they’ve all been quarantined together. So, no need to DM Megan with an Amazon link to the 30-pack of disposable blue paper masks.
In the picture from left to right is Machine, Megan, Lala Kent of Vanderpump Rules, her fiancé Randall, Madison Bigos, Leonardo DiCaprio’s First Mate Lukas Haas, and Emile Hirsch. Which is all 100% less important than the pose Megan and Machine chose to execute in that picture which is “tattoo shop employees ducking out for 10 minutes to take maternity pics at the Walmart Photo Studio.”
The only thing that might violate the unspoken celebrity agreement is that their Instagram officiality didn’t happen on either of their respective Instagram accounts. Megan hasn’t posted since June, when she defended her working relationship with Michael Bay. MGK’s most recent post was a tribute to his father, who passed away at the beginning of July (his father passed away from an illness not related to the COVID-19 pandemic).
But when that time comes, and I assume it eventually will, I hope they get just a bit more punny than what I just suggested. Maybe Megan can write something about how she…I don’t know – pulled the trigger on their love. I don’t know, it could use some more workshopping.
