In his new documentary, "Life in Pink", Machine Gun Kelly, discusses his mental health, including an especially dark time when he attempted suicide while on the phone with his fiancée Megan Fox.
The incident took place a couple years ago, after his father’s death in July of 2020 and while Fox was in Bulgaria shooting a movie.
MGK explains, “I wouldn’t leave my room and I started getting really, really, really dark. I started getting this really wild paranoia. Like, I kept getting paranoid that someone was gonna come and kill me.”
The musician said that at the time, he slept with a shotgun next to his bed, and one day, he “just fu--ing snapped.” He called Megan Fox and accused her of not being there for him, and it was during that phone call that he attempted to kill himself. He said the gun jammed, prompting a major turning point. “That was kind of where I started realizing, like, something’s not right."
MGK has talked about suicidal ideation and depression before. He told GQ UK last year that he had post-traumatic stress from his childhood.
