March 2020: Kelly and Fox met while filming "Midnight in the Switchgrass" in Puerto Rico.
The actors first met on the set of "Midnight in the Switchgrass," a serial killer thriller directed and produced by Randall Emmett. Fox was cast first in February, and Kelly joined shortly after in early March.
Once they were in Puerto Rico, they immediately began spending time with each other. Emmett shared a photo of the duo after they filmed a fight scene on Instagram along with two seats with Kelly and Fox's names next to each other just three days into shooting.
The project was postponed due to COVID-19 one week after production began, and the cast and crew returned home.
March 11, 2020: Kelly shared a photo of his and Fox's chairs next to each other on set.

After the "Midnight in the Switchgrass" cast returned from Puerto Rico, the costars were seen picking up food together in Calabasas in photos published by the Daily Mail.
Fox sat in the passenger seat of Kelly's Aston Martin in the photos. According to the outlet, they drove back to Fox's gated home after picking up their meal.
Nearly a month before Kelly and Fox's outing, reports surfaced that the "Jennifer's Body" actress was isolating separately from her husband of 10 years, Brian Austin Green.
The couple was spotted in a parking lot swapping their three children — Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3 — and Green wasn't wearing a wedding ring, leading people to wonder if they'd broken up.
May 16, 2020: Green posted a cryptic message on Fox's birthday.
On the actress' 34th birthday, Green shared an Instagram photo of a monarch butterfly perched on a purple flower.
"Eventually butterflies get bored sitting on a flower for too long. They start feeling smothered. It's a great big world and they want to experience it," he wrote.
Though the "Beverly Hills, 90210" actor didn't mention Fox by name, the fact that he wrote the message on her birthday amid reports that she'd moved on with Kelly led fans to believe the "smothered" butterfly was a metaphor for his wife.
May 18, 2020: A source told E! News that Fox and Kelly were "hooking up."
"Megan has been working on a movie with Machine Gun Kelly and gotten close to him. They are hooking up and have been for a little while," a source told E! News.

Green continued, "It sucks when life changes and something that you're used to, that you've been doing for 15 years, you try and not get rid of but you change. There's the unknown aspect and that's really scary. There's that pit in my stomach. I really don't want Megan and I to be at odds. At the end of it all, she's been my best friend for 15 years and I don't want to lose that."
The actor also took an opportunity to address the rumors surrounding Fox and Kelly, telling listeners that he's never personally met the musician.
"Megan and I talked about him and they're friends at this point, and from what she's expressed, he's a really just nice, genuine guy. I trust her judgment. She's always had really good judgment," Green said.
He continued, "I don't want people to think that her or he are villains or I was a victim in any way with any of this — because I wasn't. This isn't something new for us. This is something new for people to experience and hear about in the press, but it's not new for us."

"It's no secret I think feet are beautiful, and I think Megan has the most beautiful feet that exist," he said.

"I was like, 'Who's going to play this role?' And he was like, 'Oh, we just got Machine Gun Kelly.' And immediately, I was like, 'Uh oh,'" Fox said.
She continued, "I knew. I could feel that some wild s--- was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn't yet sure what. I just felt it like, deep in my solar plexus that something was going to come from that."
When the costars were filming in Puerto Rico, their trailers were directly next to each other, according to Kelly, who said he'd wait outside to "catch one glimpse of eye contact" with the actress.
"She would have to get out of her car," he said, adding, "There were like five steps between the car and the trailer. I would just sit there and hope."
Fox said that she considers Kelly to be her "twin flame," which the actress described as a soul that has "ascended to a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time."

The actor continued to explain that both he and his ex remain committed to co-parenting their kids.
"I think it's going as well as it can," Green said, adding, "There's no rule book to it. There's no way of doing it right or doing it wrong. We are learning as we go. The important thing for us is just communicating as much as we can."
Noting that their behavior has the potential to affect their children, Green said that parents have a responsibility to make sure their kids feel "safe in it and feel loved."
"Everyone still loves and respects everyone, things are just different. It's not bad different, it's just different," he said, adding that he wishes Fox "the absolute best in everything."
"I want her to be completely happy, for her, for the kids. That's super important. No one wants to be around somebody that's unhappy, nothing good comes out of that. That's a terrible situation," Green said. "We are taking it day by day."
The actor continued to call the timing of their split "insane" and "unfortunate" since "the news cycle is a bit bigger than we were prepared for" due to the coronavirus.

When a fan asked Green if he'd ever rekindle his relationship with Fox during the actor's first Instagram Live, he said he hasn't counted it out.

Green continued, "We had an amazing 15-year relationship. We have three beautiful kids. We shared a lot together and we really went through a lot together. Right now the paths are different and she is on her path doing what she feels she needs to be doing to be happy and I'm on my path doing what I feel I need to do to be happy and it's not for a lack of love for the kids or lack of being responsible."

"'Tickets' is essentially my diary, because I did fall in love during the making of this record, and I did become a better person. It's interesting," he told NME.
Kelly said that the album's title could've "lived up to a reality" if he hadn't changed the direction his life was going.
"I think the universe caught on to me wanting to make a change. It was like: 'Maybe we won't make this a reality; maybe we'll make this ironic,'" he said. "Instead of the downfall, go ahead and have the biggest rise of your f---ing life."
November 17, 2020: Kelly said meeting Fox took him "out of the fast lane."
The musician said that he found Fox at a period of time when love was not "being encouraged" during his interview with Nylon.
"In fact, it's exactly the opposite: everything now is isolation, dehumanization, separation," he explained, adding that it would be natural to have a "rock star" mentality "with multiple women and all that."
But meeting Fox started a new chapter for Kelly.
"Finding someone that can take you out of the fast lane and make sure that you're safe, because at any minute you can crash — I love that it can evolve into that," he said.
November 17, 2020: Fox said that loving Kelly is "like being in love with a tsunami or a forest fire."
In Kelly's December cover story for Nylon, Fox likened her love for the musician to a natural disaster.

Fox also called their relationship "once in a lifetime thing" and said they have a connection of "mythic proportions."
The actress explained that she never tries to "control him" but rather helps Kelly "avoid his own self destructive tendencies."
"That's where I'm useful because on his own and left to his own devices I don't know how much interest he has in caring for himself," she said.
However, Fox said that she was drawn to Kelly from the moment she saw him, despite his bad boy reputation.
"I looked into his eyes [and] I felt the most pristine, most gentle, most pure spirit. My heart shattered immediately and I just knew that I was f---ed," she recalled.

"Once in a lifetime, magic can happen," she told the audience, continuing, "For this next performer, we've all been under his spell since his debut in 2012."

November 27, 2020: Kelly said that he leans on Fox for support.
The musician opened up about his mental health and past drug use in an Interview article. When asked who he leans on for mental and creative support, he mentioned Fox.
