Eminem has been dragged into Machine Gun Kelly’s rumored break-up with Megan Fox.
Rumors of a potential break-up between MGK and the Transformers star began circulatiing on Sunday (February 12) after the latter posted a cryptic lyric from Beyoncé’s Lemonade alongside a video of a burning envelope on Instagram.
Fox then deleted every photo featuring Kelly and unfollowed everyone on the platform except for Eminem, Harry Styles and Timothée Chalamet, before deactivating her profile entirely.
“You can taste the dishonesty/It’s all over your breath,” Fox wrote in her cryptic IG caption.

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox confirmed their relationship in June 2020 after sparking dating rumors following Fox’s appearance in the Tickets To My Downfall rapper’s sultry “Bloody Valentine” music video.
The news of a potential breakup comes shortly after the pair announced they were engaged in January.
“Beneath the same branches we fell in love under, I brought her back to ask her to marry me,” Kelly wrote in a lengthy Instagram post at the time. “I know tradition is one ring, but I designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald [her birth stone] and the diamond [my birth stone] set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love. 1-11-2022.”
Megan Fox following Eminem on Instagram is also telling considering his rivalry with MGK over the years. It began in 2012 after the Cleveland, Ohio native tweeted that Slim Shady’s daughter Hailie Jade looked “hot as fuck.” Em responded to the disrespect on his 2018 Kamikaze track “Not Alike.”
“If you wanna come at me with a sub, Machine Gun/ And I’m talkin’ to you, but you already know who the fuck you are, Kelly/ I don’t use sublims and sure as fuck don’t sneak-diss/ But keep commenting on my daughter Hailie,” he rapped.
MGK returned fire with “Rap Devil,” which prompted Em to respond with “Killshot” before the feud fizzled out.
“I said what I said. I don’t give a fuck,” MGK later told Everyday Struggle in 2019. “You can’t hoe me. That should be the narrative for any generation. You can’t just hoe us just because you’re a legend. That was weird. It was out of nowhere. It was weird. It was ill-timed. Mac’s [Miller] death had just happened. It was weird.”
Kelly then revealed that he penned “Rap Devil” while he was drunk.
“We went in locker room of a place where we were at and I just did it on the spot after that shit released, in a matter of hours dude,” he continued. “I was with Odell the night before, celebrating the $100 million contract thing. I was still just drunk, like, ‘This muthafucka.’”
In an interview with Howard Stern in 2020, Kelly reaffirmed there is still bad blood between the pair, but said the disses lobbed at him by Em on 2020’s Music To Be Murdered By didn’t phase him in the slightest.
“I don’t feel any type of way about it,” he said. “I’m like asleep on my tour bus and this fucking guy drops an album with like three songs consecutively talking about me. What the fuck you think I’m going to do, just fucking roll over and go back to sleep? I said what I said. Respect the fight, that’s it.”
