The dazzling two-stone engagement ring, custom made by Stephen Webster, is set on two magnetic bands of thorns and will hurt when Fox removes it because “love is pain.”
“It’s a thoroughbred Colombian emerald, with no treatment,” said Machine Gun Kelly—real name Colson Baker—in an interview with Vogue this week.
“It was just carved into the teardrop, straight out of the mine. And the diamond was directly from Stephen.
“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…” the 31-year old said.
“Love is pain!” the “Rap Devil” hitmaker said in the joint interview with his 35-year-old fiancée.
Unsurprisingly, this revelation has led to much derision from social media users as the pair’s dramatic romance continues to surprise and entertain.
“megan fox’s bracelet gift from her husband,” joked one Twitter user.
Another added: “i miss megan fox when she stayed mysterious and just pretty to look at.”
Another viral tweet, with more than 24,000 likes, reads: “megan fox’s ring.”
Another joked: “megan fox and machine gun kelly are like that couple in middle school who watched twilight once and then went around telling people they were part of the cullen family.”

“everything I’ve learned about this couple has been against my will,” said another.

Another added: “how do i file a restraining order against megan fox/machine gun kelly’s relationship.”
From the thorned engagement ring to drinking each other’s blood. Following the couple’s engagement announcement last week, Fox revealed that they celebrated by drinking each other’s blood in a move that also caused a stir online.
“In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree,” the Jennifer’s Body star wrote in her Instagram caption. “We asked for magic. We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma.
“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. …and then we drank each other’s blood. 1.11.22.”
