Machine Gun Kelly and girlfriend Megan Fox were hand-in-hand on the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet in Brooklyn on Sunday night when a scuffle broke out.
In a video that has been making the rounds on the internet, the UFC fighter Conor McGregor lunges at the rapper and both parties are separated by security.
As per Page Six, McGregor allegedly threw a drink at Machine Gun Kelly, which led to the incident.
A source reportedly said, “They scuffled then it settled down and Conor went for him again.” Photographers were reportedly upset because they were concerned they wouldn’t be able to capture photos of Kelly and Fox.
McGregor was ready to throw fists,” a second source said. “Security was having trouble holding him back.”
A rep for McGregor denied an altercation took place at all — despite there being video evidence. “Conor only fights fighters,” the rep said.
However, TMZ claims McGregor wanted to say hello to Machine Gun Kelly, stuck his hand out and started walking toward him. Kelly said “something” McGregor couldn’t hear and Kelly’s security allegedly shoved McGregor aside. Surprised by how he was treated, McGregor fought back.
