Machine Gun Kelly had a frightening experience when a fan rushed the stage during the 2023 Forbes 30 Under 30 conference in his hometown of Cleveland on Tuesday.

The Bloody Valentine hitmaker jumped up to defend himself after an unidentified conference attendee managed to sneak past security and make his way on stage, as seen in a video posted to Instagram.

In the clip, the fan slowly approached the singer, aka MGK, who was sitting in a chair for his interview with Forbes rep Kristin Stoller. 

With his fists balled up, the crooner quickly jumped out of his chair and squared off against the young man, saying, ‘My man, get the f**k away from me. Yo, what are you doing? What are you doing? This is a bad look. Don’t make me do this.’

A security guard quickly entered from backstage, grabbed the fan and dragged him off stage.

After a brief pause following the intense moment, MGK – real name Colson Baker -told the audience: ‘I’m sorry, I try to live in the dichotomy more on this side than the other guy.

‘I left that guy in the past. I’m really sorry. I do apologize for my primal reaction.’

Stoller complimented the star on keeping his composure and said he handled it ‘amazingly’. 

This isn’t the first time machine Gun Kelly found himself on the brink of an altercation in a public forum.

In July, there was an incident at the Orange County Fair where a guy aggressively approached MGK and his girlfriend, Megan Fox. During the altercation with MGK’s security team, Megan got pushed into a barricade. 

In 2021, Conor McGregor, the MMA fighter, had some choice words for Machine Gun Kelly during a face-off at the MTV Video Music Awards held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The incident occurred on the red carpet just before the show began, with both Conor and MGK accompanied by their partners, Megan and Dee Devlin respectively.

Megan intervened and put herself between the two men, eventually guiding her boyfriend away from the growing crowd that had gathered. 

Adrenaline rush: MGK jumped out of his chair and squared off against the young man, saying 'My man, get the f**k away from me.'

Conor could be heard calling MGK a ‘little vanilla boy rapper’ during their brief confrontation.

Later, Conor told Entertainment Tonight: ‘Absolutely nothing happened. I don’t know. He showed up, and I don’t know. I don’t know the guy.

‘Nothing happened with me, I only fight real fighters, people that actually fight, you know what I mean? I certainly don’t fight little vanilla boy rappers. 

‘I don’t even know the guy. I don’t know anything about him, except that he’s with Megan Fox.’

Initially, it was rumored that the fighter wanted to take a photo with MGK, but the  star turned down the request, as reported by TMZ.

However, Conor’s spokesperson later clarified to MailOnline, stating, ‘Conor McGregor didn’t seek a photo with anyone, and he wasn’t the one who started this incident. He’s not acquainted with Machine Gun Kelly, aside from the fact that Kelly attended one of Conor’s fights in July.’

There were also reports indicating that words were exchanged, and the situation escalated to the point where Kelly pushed Conor, causing him to stumble back and spill his drink.
