A week ago, model and actor Megan Fox announced her engagement to American rapper Machine Gun Kelly via a dreamy proposal video on Instagram. "Somehow, a year and a half later, having walked through hell together and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him. And, just as in every lifetime before this one and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes," she wrote in her post.
And, expectedly, what caught our eye was the dual-stone engagement rock that MGK painstakingly—emphasis on pain—designed for his lady love. The stunning teardrop diamond emerald ring that Machine Gun Kelly placed on Fox's finger, under a banyan tree in Puerto Rico, is said to have thorns placed in it, making it rather painful to remove.
Romantic or abusive, you reckon?
"It’s a thoroughbred Colombian emerald with no treatment. It was just carved into the teardrop, straight out of the mine. And the diamond was directly from Stephen Webster. The concept is that the ring can come apart to make two rings. When it’s together, it’s held in place by a magnet. So you see how it snaps together? And then it forms an obscure heart. And you see this right here? The bands are actually thorns. So if she tries to take it off, it hurts...love is pain," the rapper revealed.
He debuted Megan Fox's gorgeous engagement ring on his Instagram and penned, "Yes, in this life and every life 💍 beneath the same branches we fell in love under, I brought her back to ask her to marry me. I know tradition is one ring, but I designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birthstone) and the diamond (my birthstone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love. 1-11-2022 ✨"
The couple met on the sets of the crime-thriller film, Midnight in the Switchgrass, in March 2020, after Megan had divorced her ex-husband, Brian Austin Green.
