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

Machine Gun Kelly was left covered in blood after smashing a champagne glass on his face.

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.

Following the events, the rapper and friends celebrated at Catch Steakhouse, which Machine Gun Kelly was photographed leaving later covered in blood.

The injury was explained in a clip posted to his Instagram Story on Wednesday (29 June) morning, in which Kelly was shown smashing a glass on his own face.

While making a speech at the afterparty, he told the crowds: “I don’t give a s***,” before smashing the glass on his face to gasps from his fans.

“And this is where things turned…” he captioned the post.

In a second clip, Kelly was shown singing his song “My Ex’s Best Friend” while clutching a tissue and with blood running down his face.

In the documentary, which will come to Disney Plus in the UK soon, Kelly – real name Colson Baker – discusses a night in July 2020 where he put a gun in his mouth while on the phone to fiancé 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.”

Life in Pink is on Hulu in the US and coming soon to Disney Plus in the UK.
