In the latest Hulu documentary Life in Pink based on the life of the American rapper, singer, musician, and actor Machine Gun Kelly, a tragic incident in the life of the Bad Things singer is revealed. Colson Baker who goes by the name of “Machine Gun Kelly” revealed that once he tried to commit suicide after his father’s death.
Machine Gun Kelly is known for blending contemporary and alternative hip hop with rock. He is also the accolade of numerous Musical awards and has given countless hits but his life took a dark turn after his father died. Kelly discussed how a phone call that night with his now fiance Megan Fox saved him from almost killing himself that night.
Used to Sleep with a Shotgun:
The Birdbox actor stated that at one point it was so hard for him that he used to sleep with a shotgun next to his bed. According to him, while his partner Fox was on a shooting at Bulgaria, he had to go to his father’s apartment to clear out some stuff and he had a weird and wild interaction with a neighbor who really messed up his head, and he grew paranoid that someone was trying to kill him:
“I flew to my dad’s apartment to clean out all his stuff. I had a really weird interaction with a neighbor who told me a lot of things I didn’t want to hear and that fu*ked me up even more because I couldn’t deal with the pain,” Kelly said. “I wouldn’t leave my room and I started having really, really, really dark thoughts. Megan (Fox) went to Bulgaria to film a movie and I started feeling really wild paranoia. I was constantly getting paranoid that someone was coming to kill me.”
All of this had a bad toll on Kelly’s mental state and at one point, the singer just snapped and he tried to kill himself. He called Fox and put the gun in his mouth while his partner was completely dead silent:
“I called Megan. I was like, ‘You’re not here for me. I’m in my room and I’m freaking out, while she’s listening to me. Dude, I put the shotgun in my mouth. And I’m screaming on the phone and the barrel’s in my mouth. I go to cock the shotgun and the bullet, when it comes back up, the cartridge jams. Megan went silent,” Machine Gun Kelly said.
But fortunately, that night both Fox and his 12-year-old daughter Cassie comforted him and helped him to calm down.
The Rapper acknowledges that due to that incident, the Transformers actress “became the sunshine” for him and also went on to describe his relationship with her as a fairy tale.
“That’s what helps me write those songs. Because it’s like all the fairy tales they never told you in school… the passion between us is out of this world”.
Machine Gun Kelly also stated that after that incident, he decided that the only drugs in his life would be happiness and his commitment to the art.
