Rocker Machine Gun Kelly and mixed martial arts superstar Conner McGregor got into an altercation the MTV Video Music Awards at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday.
It all went down as Kelly and McGregor were both posing for photographers on the red carpet with their respective partners -Megan Fox and Dee Devlin – by their sides just before the start of the show.
Kelly’s movie star girlfriend Fox was among the people who stepped in between the two would-be fighters, and then wrapped her arms around him as the couple were led off past the growing crowd that had gathered.
According to McGregor’s representative, the fighter does not know who Kelly is and insisted that his client wasn’t the one to start the scuffle.
It was first reported that McGregor asked MGK (born Colson Baker) for a photo, but the Bloody Valentine star shot him down, according to TMZ.
However McGregor’s spokesperson has since stated: ‘Conor McGregor did not ask anyone for a picture, nor did he instigate this incident. He does not know Machine Gun Kelly, outside of the fact that he attended Conor’s fight this past July.’
