Conor McGregor and Machine Gun Kelly threw hands during the VMAs.
Reportedly, the two had to be separated after getting into an altercation on the VMAs red carpet at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center this past Sunday night.
A spy informed Page Six they “got into a fight at the top of the carpet” and “had to be pulled apart.”
Photos reveal the McGregor, 33, and Kelly, 31, being pulled apart by the looks of security after the altercation began.
The source added that McGregor allegedly threw his drink at Kelly.
“They scuffled, then it settled down and Conor went for him again,” the source said, adding that the photographers “weren’t happy” and were “saying they were going to boycott Conor because they were worried MGK and Megan wouldn’t walk.”
Another source allegedly said security had to get involved and “everyone was screaming.”
“[McGregor] was ready to throw fists,” the second source said, adding, “Security was having trouble holding him back.”
It was not clear what the two were fighting about but McGregor’s rep denied that the fight occurred, despite the (very clear) photo evidence.
“Conor only fights fighters,” his rep told Page Six in a statement. However, the two seemed to be able to carry on with the night. Kelly was seen walking the red carpet with his girlfriend Megan Fox not too long after. The two were not shy with showing PDA while posing for the cameras.
In July, Kelly spoke on losing his father with whom he shared a complicated relationship with.
The 30-year-old rapper who was born Colson Baker, announced how his dad died on the one-year anniversary of the release of his album Hotel Diablo. MGK posted how he would be taking a step back from social media to process the tragedy.
“i had plans for the one year anniversary of Hotel Diablo today. that album was everything i wanted to say and i know it’s close to my fans,” he tweeted. “but my father took his last breath this morning, and i’ve never felt a pain this deep in my life. i’m setting my phone down,” added MGK. “love you. thank you guys for everything.”
MGK opened up to his fans regarding his father who had become sick. MGK, father to Casie who turns 12 this month, posted to Twitter in December how he “should’ve told him that I loved him years ago.”
