Machine Gun Kelly shares photos of gash on face after smashing glass on himself during performance

‘NYC you’re my bloody valentine,’ Kelly captioned photos of his injury

Machine Gun Kelly smashes glass on his face at Madison Square Garden show

Machine Gun Kelly shared photos of his bloody injury after he was filmed smashing a glass on his head.

On Tuesday (28 June), the musician hosted the premiere for his new documentary Life in Pink, as well as performing live at Madison Square Garden.

During the afterparty at Catch Steakhouse in New York, Kelly told the crowd: “I don’t give a s***,” before smashing a champagne glass on his own face.

In an Instagram posted Wednesday (29 June), Kelly wrote “NYC you’re my bloody valentine” alongside more photos of the gash on his forehead.

In a follow-up Instagram Story, Kelly is seen lifting up his hair to examine the cut and saying: “Oh s***... gross.”

In the documentary, which is out on Disney+ now, Kelly – real name Colson Baker – discusses a night in July 2020 where he put a gun in his mouth while on the phone to fiancée Megan Fox.

Asked about the incident and how they’d dealt with it at the premiere, actor Fox said that the pair had “done every form of therapy that exists”.

“Some of it’s really difficult, but our therapist said that a relationship is basically the process of breaking each other down, but most people don’t have the tools to build each other back up, to rebuild,” she said.

“And so, it’s a constant process of, like, suffering and passion and love and the repeat cycles. So, we’re just learning that, and navigating that, doing that together. There’s lots of all of those things all of the time.”
