Rapper Machine Gun Kelly got into a physical altercation with MMA fighter and champion Conor McGregor at MTV Video Music Awards 2021. The incident happened at the red carpet and according to some of the images doing the rounds on the internet, Kelly and McGregor had to be separated by the security.
Kelly’s girlfriend Megan Fox was seen calming him down and keeping her hand on his chest to separate him from McGregor.
It is said the altercation started after McGregor allegedly asked Kelly for a photo, which was denied, reports TMZ.com. That somehow escalated into Kelly apparently pushing McGregor, which made the ex-UFC champion stumble backward while spilling his drink.
That’s when McGregor allegedly threw his drink at Kelly, which only escalated the situation further as security attempted to keep the two celebrities apart.
McGregor was also seen charging at Kelly several times as security intervened and kept them separate.
