Where Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly's Relationship Stands

A source tells ET that the actress' new book of poetry, 'Pretty Boys Are Poisonous,' is causing strife in her relationship.

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly are continuing to work on their relationship. 

A source tells ET that the pair's love story is a dynamic journey marked by both highs and lows.

"Megan and Machine Gun Kelly have their ups and downs, as most couples do," the source revealed. "They love so hard that sometimes things can be intense, but ultimately, they do their best to hear one another and better themselves. They both want a happy, loving, supportive, and honest relationship."

"Therapy and open communication play pivotal roles in their relationship dynamics, with the couple prioritizing constructive dialogue and personal growth," the source added. "Seeking guidance from a trusted third party allows them to navigate challenges and strengthen their bond, fostering an environment where mutual understanding thrives.

"They like to share their thoughts and feelings in a controlled environment with a trusted third party to ensure everyone is heard," the source explained. "It’s also a good way for them to develop plans to ensure a healthy future as individuals and as a couple."

Despite the demands of their high-profile careers, Fox and Kelly are adept at infusing their relationship with joy and spontaneity. Embracing diverse activities, from globe-trotting adventures to cherished family moments, the couple ensures that their connection remains vibrant and fulfilling.

"They are also great at keeping their relationship fun and fresh," the source added. "They like to travel, spend time with their kids, enjoy romantic nights in, and hang out with friends."

In December, Fox's collection of poems, Pretty Boys Are Poisonous, caused some problems in her relationship with MGK.

A source told ET at the time that the couple had been "arguing recently" because the musician was "upset" by some of the poems and "taking them personally."

"Megan is frustrated that MGK hasn't been more supportive and that he isn't recognizing that some of the poems don't have anything to do with him," the source added. "They are trying to work through things and are still together as of now, but it has been difficult to get along."


Fox first announced her latest poetry project in August. She previously shared that it was Kelly, whom she often refers to as her "twin flame," who encouraged her to write her book. The pair has been in an on-again-off-again relationship since 2020.

"These poems were written in an attempt to excise the illness that has taken root in me because of my silence," the actress wrote in a personal message on Instagram. "I've spent my entire life keeping the secrets of men, my body aches from carrying the weight of their sins. My freedom lives in these pages and I hope that my words can inspire others to take back their happiness and their identity by using their voice to illuminate what's been buried, but not forgotten, in the darkness."

At the time, Kelly left a sweet comment with a fire emoji. "Proud of you," he gushed. 

In Pretty Boys Are Poisonous, Fox addresses the devastation and abuse she says she's suffered in some of her high-profile relationships. 

Fox was previously married to Brian Austin Green for 10 years. The former couple shares three kids: Noah, 11, Bodhi, 9, and Journey, 7.

Kelly -- who is also known by his legal name, Colson Baker -- has a 14-year-old daughter, Casie, from a previous relationship.
