Colson currently has one child, a daughter named Casie Baker. She recently turned 12 and attended the 2021 American Music Awards as his guest. He is also engaged to actress Megan Fox, with whom he has been in a relationship since May 2020. The relationship began right after Megan divorced her husband of ten years, Brian Austin Green.

The couple would rocket into the limelight with their fashionable ensembles and the shocking news that they drank each other’s blood. They were inseparable, but there was an incident in 2021 when MGK’s Ex, Sommer Ray, claimed that he had been continuing to see her even when he was dating Megan. Did he cheat again? Here’s what we know.

Despite drinking each other’s blood in the past, fans believe Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox are no longer in a relationship. Their break-up speculation started to gain social media traction after a cryptic post from Fox.

There is no evidence yet to confirm that MGK has cheated on Megan, only circumstance and speculation have led people to believe this. However, it does seem that Megan believes he cheated. Her midnight Instagram post had the caption, “You can taste the dishonesty/ It’s all over your breath” a lyric fans recognized as a nod to Beyoncé’s “Pray You Catch Me” off her album “Lemonade,” which was about Beyoncé discovering and dealing with her own partner cheating.
