Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly have become one of Hollywood’s rising power couples. The couple received a rocky reception at first due to some confusing drama. Eventually, MGK and Fox found their stride with the media and the public. But the actress’s film commitments led to an unexpected move early in the couple’s relationship. The rapper-actor spoke on the way they chose to follow Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton's example with some blood-infused jewelry.
When it comes to unorthodox acts of love, Angelina Jolie and ex Billy Bob Thornton’s infamous blood necklaces are still a topic of discussion. Some were repulsed while others were inspired. Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox seemingly fell into the latter, especially early in their relationship. MGK recently spoke to a necklace he wears that contains a drop of Fox's blood, saying:
She was actually going out of town to film a movie. This was really new in our relationship. I didn’t have a passport either, so she was going out to Bulgaria. I was kind of freaking out like ‘You’re gonna leave and I can’t even come see you.’ Some people give a handkerchief to their partner, she gave me her DNA.
While everyone may have their opinion on this blood necklace, many of us have done something in relationships that others might see as extreme. In the early stage, Machine Gun Kelly wanted to stay connected with Megan Fox while she was away. Not seeing his girlfriend every day was seemingly unsettling for the musician at the time. Plus, the passport situation didn’t make things easier. So the blood veil seemed like the best solution.
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s love gesture seemingly mimicked Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton’s iconic necklaces. But Thornton revealed in a 2018 interview (via Insider) that the media exaggerated that love act. He revealed the veils only had smears, not pints, of blood. So, it wasn’t as bizarre as folks made it out to be. Even MGK’s veil only had a drop of Fox’s blood. So the gesture in both cases isn’t as extreme as viewers made them out to be.
During his interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the talk show host asked Machine Gun Kelly if he ever got to see the actress in Bulgaria. The rapper-actor made a stunning revelation by shouting out U.S. Representative Berne Sanders. MGK talked about the U.S. Representative helping him to get a passport to visit Megan Fox on her film shoot. He also admitted to not speaking with Sanders after the kind gesture. The rapper-actor ended up thanking the U.S. Representative on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. DeGeneres jokingly commented on how Sanders saved the multi-hyphenates' relationship during the early stage. Once again, it’s Bernie Sanders to the rescue during a person’s time of need.
As evident by Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s social media feed, the couple is very much in love and not afraid to show it. The relationship seems to have benefitted the rapper-actor most as seen with his big moments and his addiction issues. Recently, the couple’s relationship timeline has come under question, but the drama hasn’t affected their bond. So, Fox and MGK’s Jolie-Thornton gesture was just another sign of their ever-growing love.
