The 32-year-old “Emo Girl” singer described the crisis in detail in his new Hulu documentary “Life in Pink,” which premiered on Monday, June 27. The Texas native, whose real name is Colson Baker, said the dark moment happened in July 2020. after the death of his father, with whom he had recently reconciled.
“I didn’t leave my room and it was getting very, very, very dark,” the “Big Teen” star recalled in the film. “Megan went to Bulgaria to shoot a movie, and I got really wild paranoia. Like, I kept getting paranoid that someone would come and kill me.”
The Papercuts rapper went on to say that he always slept with a shotgun by his bed, but that day he “just snapped.” He called the 36-year-old Fox, whom he met in March of the same year during the filming of “Midnight in Millet”.
“I thought: “You’re not here because of me.” I’m in my room and I’m crazy about her,” recalls Kelly. “Dude, I put a shotgun in my mouth. And I’m yelling into the phone and like a barrel in my mouth. And I go to cock the gun, and the bullet, when it comes back, just jams the cartridge case. Megan is silent as if dead.”

Last Thursday I had my first therapy session. This is the first time I’ve said, “Hey, I need to separate these two people,” i.e. Machine Gun Kelly and Colson Baker. This dichotomy is too intense for me.”
