Machine Gun Kelly has revealed that the almond-shaped emerald and diamond engagement ring that he proposed to Megan Fox with in Puerto Rico not only cost $340,000, but also has real-life thorns inside it.

The meaning behind Megan Fox's engagement ring from Machine Gun Kelly

"The bands are actually thorns. So if she tries to take it off, it hurts" he told Vogue, adding: "Love is pain!". The couple shared their engagement on Instagram, revealing that they celebrated by 'drinking each other’s blood'.

In Vogue interview, he shared that the emerald gem is 'a thoroughbred Colombian emerald, with no treatment'.

The 6 carat ring, which he says he 'designed alongside Stephen Webster' is a combination of her birth stone and his birth stone. "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".

Megan's birth stone is the emerald, a symbol of rebirth whilst his birth stone is the diamond, which holds a significant meaning that is thought to provide the wearer with better relationships and an increase in inner strength.

"I designed [the ring] with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) 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".

Posting a video of the engagement, Megan captioned the moment:

"In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree. 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".

She ended the caption by revealing: "…and then we drank each other’s blood".

However, some people have since hailed the unique engagement ring 'abusive' owing to the fact that Megan would be in physical pain if she were to take off the ring.

'Kelly giving Fox a ring that could cause her physical pain keeps her bound to him – it is beyond her control. It feels to me like a not-so-subtle display of toxic masculinity – and it simply doesn’t sit right,' wrote a columnist for Yahoo! Voices.

"I don't know his music, but everything else I learn about Machine Gun Kelly reveals him to be made entirely of red flags," wrote one social media user in response to the ring.

Rumours of Fox and Kelly dating started back in May 2020 after Megan split from ex-husband, actor Brian Austin Green. Speculation was furthered when the Transformers actress appeared in the music video of Kelly's hit song 'Bloody Valentine'.
