Megan Fox has revealed that she and fiancé Machine Gun Kelly have been on “every form of therapy there is” since the musician almost attempted suicide.
In his new Hulu documentary life in pinkKelly spoke about a night in July 2020 when he put a gun in his mouth while on the phone with Fox.
At the documentary’s premiere on Tuesday (June 28), Fox was asked how she helped Kelly through the difficult time he was having.
“We’ve done every form of therapy there is,” the actor said entertainment tonight. “We’ve found a therapist who really works for us, couples and individuals, and it’s definitely a process, it’s not an easy one.
“Some of it is really difficult, but our therapist said that fundamentally, a relationship is the process of destroying one another, but most people don’t have the tools to rebuild and rebuild.”
Fox continued, “And so it’s a constant process of suffering and passion and love and the repeating cycles. So, we’re just learning this and navigating this, doing this together. There’s a lot of all those things all the time.”
In the documentary, Kelly – real name Colson Baker – explains that he had dark thoughts while dealing with the loss of his father, when he almost attempted suicide.
“I didn’t want to leave my room and started getting really, really, really dark. Megan went to Bulgaria to do a movie and I got this really wild paranoia. I was getting more and more paranoid that someone would come and kill me,” the 32-year-old recalled about his life in the new documentary page six.
Kelly added that he always slept with a shotgun next to his bed that day and “just fucking snapped.”
“I called Megan. I thought, ‘You’re not here for me.’ I’m in my room and I’m freaking out in front of her. Dude, I’ll put the shotgun in my mouth. And I’m screaming on the phone and, like, the keg’s in my mouth. And I go to cock the shotgun and the bullet when it comes back up the grenade jams. Megan is dead still,” he said.
life in pink is on Hulu in the US and coming soon to Disney+ in the UK.
