Megan Fox’s boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly reveals he’s in ‘therapy’ after struggling with drug abuse ‘for a long time’

MEGAN Fox's musician and actor boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly revealed he's in 'therapy' in an interview with fellow actor, Dave Franco.

MGK opened up admitting he had struggled with drug abuse 'for a long time.'

MGK, whose real name is Richard Colson Baker, told his friend Dave: "I think I watched myself believe that drugs were how you attained a level or unlocked something in your brain, and I’ve seen the pros and cons of it. Adderall was a huge thing for me for a long time.

"And I went from orally taking it to then snorting it, and then it became something where I was scared to ever go into a studio if I didn’t have something. I wouldn’t even step out unless there was a medicine man who was going to visit me and give me what I needed.

"And that’s where it becomes a problem. You’re telling yourself you can’t do this without that when really it’s in you the whole time. If that pill did that for you, then everyone who’s taken that would just be making albums and writing songs. And so that limited me."

He went on: "Currently, my drug of choice is happiness and commitment to the art, rather than a commitment to a vice that I believed made the art. I’m taking steps.

"I had my first therapy session last Thursday. That’s the first time I ever went, “Hey, I need to separate these two people,” which is Machine Gun Kelly and Colson Baker. The dichotomy is too intense for me."

MGK said of starting therapy: "I’m early in the process. The tools that I’ve been given to start with seem helpful, I think. I’m still kind of ripping my hair out. Why am I not changing overnight? How am I supposed to meditate for 10 minutes when I can’t even sit in my own brain for two minutes without distracting myself by doing something?

"That’s really hard. But the commitment to change is inspiring, and I think will reverberate through the universe and definitely through my family. I can see it already with the people around me. The willingness to finally be happy with my own self has invited a much more vibrant energy around us than before."

Last week, TMZ reported that MGK's girlfriend, Megan, filed divorce documents.

The couple has been together since earlier this year.

In documents obtained by the outlet, Megan asked for joint legal and physical custody of their three kids.

The 34-year-old actress also asked to terminate the ability for both her and Brian, 47, to get spousal support.

She listed the couple's date of separation as November 2019 in the documents.

Soon after, The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum filed his response and agreed to Megan's requests.

Additionally, the actress asked that her legal name be changed from Megan Green back to Megan Denise Fox.

Megan and Brian tied the knot in 2010 during a ceremony in Hawaii.

The pair share three children together: eight-year-old Noah Shannon, six-year-old Bodhi Ransom and four-year-old Journey River.
