Machine Gun Kelly 'went ballistic' on Megan Fox's co

Sep 08, 2023

Megan Fox and Tyson Ritter star in the upcoming movie Johnny & Clyde, but the All-American Rejects singer got more than he bargained for when he made a new scene suggestion

Tyson Ritter has claimed Machine Gun Kelly "went into maniac mode" on him while working on the film Johnny & Clyde with the musician's fiancée Megan Fox.

The All-American Rejects singer said he had a new scene idea for the film, but it left MGK far from happy.

Tyson, 39, plays Megan's henchman in the film and had the idea of putting his fingers in her mouth when she died as an act of "revenge".

"I was like, 'Hey Megan, you know, I wanted to talk to you about this moment where when you die, because you've been teasing me, putting your fingers in my mouth, that when you're dead, I put my fingers in your mouth'.

"And it's sort of this resolution to my character, like getting his revenge," Tyson explained during an appearance on the Tuna on Toast with Stryker podcast.

MGK, real name Colson Baker, allegedly got "super angry" at the request and "went ballistic".

"Colson like just goes from zero to like rage and awesome, super angry," Tyson said.

"He was super bummed about me asking if I could put my fingers in Megan Fox's mouth and I knew she was right there and he just went ballistic.

"He kind of went maniac mode."

However, Tyson admitted that the incident was the "greatest sort of gift" for him as an actor, as he used it as inspiration for another role he was working on at the time.

"What happened after that was the greatest sort of gift for my role in the other film, Prisoner's Daughter," he explained.

He said there is a scene in the movie where he "goes from zero to ape s**t" and had been struggling to decide how to do it.

"I remember when Pistol Pete [MGK] started going ape on me, I was like, 'This is really confrontational, but also, like, thank you dude'."

Tyson said there was "no resolution" to the incident with MGK, but admitted the singer "might have been having a bad day".
