Are Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly engaged?

On Wednesday, Sept. 8, Us Weekly quoted a source as saying that the same day, while watching Kelly rehearse for his debut performance at the 2021 MTV VMAs, Fox was wearing a "ring on that special finger." The source also teased a possible "surprise announcement" during the rapper's set at the award show, which takes place Sunday, Sept. 12, and where he is set to premiere his new single, "Papercuts," with drummer Travis Barker.

On Thursday, Sept. 9, Fox's rep told E! News that the actress and Kelly are not engaged. They did not comment about the reported ring.

Fox, 35, and Kelly, 31, have been dating for more than a year. In April, a source close to Fox told E! News that the actress and Kelly "plan to get engaged and married" when her divorce from Brian Austin Green, with whom she shares three children, is finalized.

And while Megan might not be rocking any new engagement jewels just yet, this past February, Kelly started wearing a different piece of curious jewelry to symbolize his commitment to his real-life "Bloody Valentine": A pendant with a vial that contained a drop of his girlfriend's blood.

In May, Kelly said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that Fox had given him the pendant, adding, "She was actually going out of town to film a movie, and this was really new in our relationship. I didn't have a passport either. So she was going out to Bulgaria and so, I was kind of freaking out like, 'Oh, you're gonna leave and I can't even come see you' or whatever."

"I mean, some people give like, a handkerchief to their partner or whatever," he continued. "She gave me her DNA."
