A fan harassed rapper Machine Gun Kelly also known as MGK, during his latest stop on his Mainstream Sellout Tour.
The singer, who is engaged to American actress and model Megan Fox, has been on the road since January, thrilling fans across America with his hit songs in promotion of his fifth album, “Tickets To My Downfall,” which was released on September 25, 2020.
While most of the tour has gone on without a hitch, the singer’s most recent appearance involved an incident between him and an overly enthusiastic fan who was seen on camera grasping onto MGK’s privates during the event.
Read below for more details.
Fan Grabbed MGK’s Privates
In a video clip obtained by TMZ, MGK was violated while performing on Thursday at the Moda Center in Portland, OR. At the time of the incident, the rapper, whose real name is Colson Baker, was rapping to one of his songs and had walked into the crowd to be closer to his fans.
While many fans were overjoyed at that and reached out to touch the singer, one unidentified individual who was standing behind the celebrity took things extreme, suddenly wrapping his hand around the “my ex’s best buddy” crooner in an attempt to take a photo with him,
The rapper’s security officer was seen trying to keep the individual under control. However, the fan gripped MGK even harder as he turned to go in a different direction, wrapping his arm around MGK’s waist to prevent him from moving on.
The fan then grabbed on to the “Bad Things” hitmaker’s private part for seconds before MGK removed the man’s hand, and then the security guard hauled him off. The rapper subsequently carried on with his performance, exciting fans with more of his hit songs.
He Once Got Into An Onstage Fight With A Fan
Given that he had engaged in a feud with a concertgoer at a show from the previous year, MGK’s response to the recent fan’s behavior appeared to demonstrate that the rapper had put on a new cloak of professionalism.
As per Page Six, the “Bloody Valentine” singer got into a fight with a man in the crowd while performing at the Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville, Kentucky, in September 2021. Security intervened at the time after MGK appeared to have thrown the first punch, although it was reported that the individual had first shoved the singer.
The outlet also noted that the crowd at the festival could be heard chanting “You suck” and also booing MGK. Some of the concertgoers were also alleged to have held up their middle fingers while the rapper was performing.
MGK Had Top Stars At His Concert
With all that now in the past, MGK took to Instagram some days ago to post snippets from his ongoing tour, showing thousands of fans dancing to his hit songs.
Stars like Lil Wayne, Halsey, Black bear, Willow, and Avril were guest artists at the concert, thrilling fans with hot jams individually and sometimes sharing the stage with the MGK. The clip also featured Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker hitting out some heavy rhythm on the drums.
MGK captioned the post, “phoned some friends #MainstreamSelloutTour,” adding a star-struck emoji. In the comment section, fans sent in several comments, hyping the show and expressing their love for the rapper.
“i love you more than i can express colson, and i appreciate you for existing,” one fan said. “i am extremely jealous of everyone who attended this show,” another wrote.
Mainstream Sellout Tour
Through mid-August, MGK will be on tour across America. The tour began on June 8 at the Moody Center in Austin, Texas, and will continue across North America before the first leg concludes on August 13 in Cleveland. The next performance is tonight, July 25, at the Spokane Arena in Spokane, Washington.]
On September 17, MGK will kick off the European leg that will take him and his team from Cologne, Germany’s Lanxess Arena, to Prague, Czech Republic’s Tipsport Arena, and many other cities, including Brussels, Frankfurt, Munich, Milan, Zurich, London, and Paris.
The tour is scheduled to end its run in Amsterdam on October 12. MGK’s partner, Fox, has been making appearances all through the concert in support of her beau, who proposed to her earlier in January with a Stephen Webster-designed engagement ring.
