Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly were photographed together looking close amid a swirl of speculation the engaged Hollywood couple had called it quits given the absence of any photos of them together for several months.
The 36-year-old actress and her 32-year-old rapper fiancé were spotted walking with their arms around each other on their way to lunch Tuesday in Brentwood, California, according to photographs obtained by TMZ in a piece published Wednesday.
Sources close to the duo shared with the outlet that “they’re doing just fine — no big issues” and said that they “obviously can’t be together 24/7. Both of them work and have kids.”
Kelly — born Colson Baker — also appeared to want to damp down the breakup rumor mill when he told his audience at his hometown show in Cleveland on August 14 about how his “wife” had a message for him before he took the stage.

In the video posted by a fan account and shared by TMZ, the rapper can be heard saying,” I talked to my wife [Fox] before I got on stage tonight … she said when you’re on stage you’re wearing your love to me. Don’t think about anything. You don’t have to prove anything to anybody …”
All this comes after fans started noticing Fox had been posting a lot of pictures without Kelly lately.
The “Jennifer’s Body” star’s last post on Instagram showing a snapshot of the happy couple together at a wedding is dated May 25.
The last photo Kelly posted of the two together on his social media account was on June 28, with images promoting his “Life in Pink” documentary. There was another post from June 10 showing the two at a premiere for his film “Taurus.”
Fox was previously married to actor Brian Austin Green, and the two share three children together. Their divorce was finalized in 2022. She started dating the rapper in late 2020 after they met on the set of their movie “Midnight in the Switchgrass.” In January, Fox announced the two were engaged. Kelly has a daughter from a previous relationship.
