Machine Gun Kelly punched microphone away when asked about VMAs scuffle

Machine Gun Kelly reportedly got into an argument with Conor McGregor on the MTV VMAs red carpet, and Megan Fox had to step in to prevent a fight.

According to TMZ, the tussle started on the red carpet, while Conor and wife Dee Devlin, and Kelly and Megan Fox were posing for photos. Reports say things took a turn when boxer McGregor asked singer MGK (real name Colson Baker) for a photo, but MGK refused.

"A source close to Conor tells us the fighter wanted to say hello to MGK, stuck his hand out and started walking up to the singer," TMZ's report says.

"We're told MGK said something - that Conor couldn't hear - and MGK's security pushed Conor away. Our source says Conor doesn't understand what the issue was, and was surprised by how he was treated."

Another onlooker told Page Six they “got into a fight at the top of the carpet” and "had to be pulled apart. They scuffled then it settled down and Conor went for him again."

Photos from the red carpet show the pair exchanging words in a crowd and with a security guard between them. Footage on social media later suggested Conor threw a drink at MGK and Megan, who had stepped in to try and diffuse the situation.

Eek. When asked about the moment later on the red carpet, MGK was having none of it, smacking the top of the interviewer's microphone away.
