So, for your peace of mind as well as mine, here's a full timeline of Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly's relationship:

In 2008, 18-year-old Colson Baker — aka Machine Gun Kelly — hung a poster of actor Megan Fox on his bedroom wall.

More specifically, it was a picture from her GQ photoshoot. He loved her as Mikaela Banes in Transformers. One of Colson's classmates even said he'd marry Megan one day.

On March 9, 2020, filming on a movie called Midnight in the Switchgrass began in Puerto Rico. Its cast included Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, who met for the first time on set.

When director Randall Emmett first told her that MGK had been cast in the film, Megan felt that "some wild shit was going to happen to [her] from that meeting."

On Randall's podcast, Give Them Lala...with Randall, she said, " I just felt it like, deep in my soul — that something was going to come from that."

Two days into filming, Megan knew that MGK was her "twin flame" — the other half of her soul — so she invited him to her trailer for an astrological reading.

On Give Them Lala...with Randall, she said, "I went deep right away. I knew before I even did his chart, I said to him, he has a Pisces moon. I could tell by his energy."

However, before they got together, Megan made a pros and cons list.
