Here is what happened:
Megan Fox has revealed details of her abusive relationships and pregnancy loss in her new book of poetry titled Pretty Boys are Poisonous. The book takes an intimate look at some of the actress’ most painful moments in life. Fox shared that her fiancé Machine Gun Kelly supported her desire to create this type of personal art, recognizing that she needed an outlet for her pain. She explained that as an actor, she doesn’t have the same outlet for catharsis as MGK does through songwriting.
Addressing the likelihood that some readers will assume her poetry is about the rapper, Fox said, “Inevitably once you’re in a famous relationship, anything I do or say for the rest of my life, people will probably think it’s about him, because the relationship is so public.” She emphasized that when it comes to expressing the truth and healing through art, artists should not worry about what other people think.
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly announced their engagement in January 2022. The couple had been spotted together at various events and taking trips to Disneyland since they began dating in 2020. Throughout their relationship, their public appearances have been a subject of interest and significance for fans and the media. Despite this, Fox highlighted the importance of putting personal pain into art and expressed her personal encouragement for others to do the same.
