New Details of VMAs Scuffle Between Machine Gun Kelly and Conor McGregor
Before the MTV Video Music Awards ceremony began at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Sunday, all the action was on the red carpet. That’s where mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor and singer Machine Gun Kelly got into a scuffle.
Video and photos began circulating that appeared to show McGregor lunging and shouting at Kelly as security stepped in.
Initially, reports were that McGregor asked MGK for a photo and was denied, then a tussle ensued. Today, “Extra’s” Billy Bush has new details. Billy revealed a source close to the situation tells him that the dust-up was over alleged DMs from Conor to MGK’s girlfriend Megan Fox, who was also at the event.
Both men did attend the awards show, and MGK took home a Moon Man trophy. He also joined Blink-182’s Travis Barker onstage to close the show with “Papercuts.”
Afterward, journalist Adam Glyn caught up with McGregor outside a hotel in Soho. He asked if the fighter was already past what happened at the VMAs. McGregor insisted it is "all good."
When Glyn pressed, asking if it's true that there is "no beef with Machine Gun Kelly," Conor answered, "I don’t even know the guy. I don’t know him. Who is he? He told me he’s been at the fights, Megan has been at the fights years… so I know Megan, and then I don’t know the guy. There is no problem. Come to the fights, no problem."
