Machine Gun Kelly gives off that “bad boy” vibe, right?
We wonder how he felt when 5’9″ Conor McGregor came after the 6’4″ rapper/rocker in front of his girlfriend, Megan Fox.
It all “went down” last night at MTV’s Video Music Awards.
A source told People that Conor, who presented at the VMAs, asked to take a photo with MGK but his request was denied by the rapper’s team. “Conor went in on it a little bit,” the insider said. The source also claimed that Conor dropped his cane when he came for MGK before retrieving it and swinging it toward the rapper. A rep for Conor, however, denied that he asked MGK for a photo. “Conor and Dee are in their seats enjoying the show. Conor appreciates all his fans,” the rep said, noting that MGK also “attended Conor’s last fight.”
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight after the VMAs, Conor denied that he tried to start a fight with MGK. “Absolutely nothing. I don’t know. He showed up, and I don’t know. I don’t know the guy,” he said when asked what happened between him and MGK. “Nothing happened with me, I only fight real fighters, people that actually fight, you know what I mean. I certainly don’t fight little vanilla boy rappers. I don’t even know the guy. I don’t know anything about him, except that he’s with Megan Fox.”
TMZ also reported that the fight started when MGK when r refused to take a photo with the fighter. The site also reported that Conor stumbled, spilled his drink and threw the rest of it on MGK. A source told Variety that McGregor tried to approach MGK, who was in line for red carpet photos. However, before he got the rapper, the source said he was stopped and pushed by MGK’s security.
As Conor continued toward MGK, the source reported that MGK “sort of snarled” at Conor who was walking with a cane due to a recent injury in a fight. Conor then “fell back and dropped his cane then spilled some of his drink and yelled something along the lines of “that f**king punk punched me.” The source claimed that Conor’s team was “begging him” to let it go as he came at MGK.
Who knows what the truth is.
Not gonna lie though, we’d go to a friends house to watch that fight.
