Machine Gun Kelly aka Colson Baker recently claimed he stabbed himself in order to impress Megan Fox when the two first began dating.


The rapper appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he recalled a story about tossing a knife into the air and it coming down and stabbing his finger.

First he told Jimmy Fallon that he injured his rear end explaining, “I had a match with Post Malone in a beer pong game. And you know when you get the cup and you start drinking? So, we didn’t even get to the game and I started drinking.”

“And, so, they filmed on the way out. They did like a Rocky, like, boxing match, like film on the way out. And I, like, couldn’t take the pressure of the camera, so I was like, ‘Alright, every five steps, I got to do something cool, ’cause it’s like 500 steps. I don’t just want to just walk,” he continued.

“So I was like, ‘Got to do something.’ So every five steps, I’d be like [whoosh sound effects]. And then there was a staircase rail, and I was like, ‘Yeah, great,’ he recalled. 

He added, “So I’d hit the staircase rail and I rode it down. At the bottom of it, I didn’t see a giant spike. And it just, you know… Yeah. It rammed… It did something that was not…”

“And then this was also, like, right when I was starting to date, you know, Megan. And I, like – I was holding it together. It was just – it was a bad night. I won the ping-pong match. I went home,” he stated.

He then proceeded to tell the story about stabbing himself with his knife, “Travis got me this – he got me a knife that was… that had an engravement from the new album on it.

“And I was like, ‘Oh check this out. This is sick.’ And I threw it up, and it came and struck in my hand,” Machine Gun Kelly relayed.

He concluded, “And then the next morning as soon as she left, I was like, ‘Yo, I need stitches real quick.’ And they came over and were like… (he makes bandaging movements with his hand.)”

Fox met Machine Gun Kelly on the set of the film Midnight in the Switchgrass. She went on to appear in his music video Bloody Valentine. 

While still married, Fox began Machine Gun Kelly with Kelly writing on Instagram in July 2020, “waited for eternity to find you again…”

A month later in August, Fox posted on Instagram, “Achingly Beautiful Boy… My heart is yours.”

In October of this year, Fox would share the cover of GQ Style featuring the pair.

She captioned the cover writing, “the tale of two outcasts and star crossed lovers caught in the throes of a torrid, solar flare of a romance featuring: feverish obsession, guns, addiction, shamans, lots of blood, general mayhem, therapy, tantric night terrors, binding rituals, chakra sound baths, psychedelic hallucinations, organic smoothies, and the kind of sex that would make Lucifer clutch his rosary.”
