Machine Gun at The Billboard Music Awards, Kelly Dedicates a Song to “wife” Megan Fox and “Unborn Child”
Gun Machine Kelly’s dedication to “twin flame” at the Las Vegas show on May 15 raised eyebrows during his performance at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards. Before starting the song, he added, “I wrote this song for my wife.” “And this is for our unborn child,” he said halfway through.
MGK proposed to Megan Fox in January, but his heartfelt commitment has some fans wondering if they’ve already married. “People in the audience turned to each other bewildered and muttered, ‘Wife?'” an eyewitness told E! News.
However, the singer has previously addressed Megan as “my wife,” most recently on The Ellen Degeneres Show in March. He spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the significance of his song “twin flame” before the BBMAs.
“I created and performed this song for her precisely two years ago today. It’s just the entire journey. “It’s all meant to be,” he added, adding that the date of this weekend’s lunar eclipse makes it even more appropriate: “It’s pretty wonderful since there’s a Lunar eclipse tonight.” The moon is full. Tomorrow is her birthday.”
“Yeah, there’s like some really deep secret meaning to the song as well,” his fiancée said when asked if she’ll be emotional in the audience. “But I can’t weep and f—k up this eyeliner,” Megan joked.
MGK appears to be arranging a wedding ceremony in the future, albeit it’s unclear what he meant by his dedication at the show. Their wedding will be “strange” and “totally out of the box,” he told Life From E!

Page Six reached out to the couple’s representatives for comment on whether they’re married and/or expecting their first child together.
Earlier in the evening, a reporter asked if they will follow in the footsteps of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker and have a hastily planned wedding in Las Vegas. Kelly, 32, announced that they would be celebrating Fox’s 37th birthday at midnight instead.
The couple got engaged in January at the Ritz-Carlton Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico, where they matched in spikes and glitter for the awards event. “And just like in every life before this one, and as in every lifetime after it, I said yes… and then we drank each other’s blood,” Fox said at the time on Instagram.
