Turns out Megan Fox isn’t the only one drinking Machine Gun Kelly’s blood.
Earlier this year, the bloodthirsty couple revealed that they consume each other’s blood for ritual purposes, then doubled down on detailing their blood-clotting habit a few months later.
Fast forward to Friday, December 16th, MGK (born Colson Baker) took to his Instagram Stories page and posted a video of several slimy, bloodied leeches huddled in his lower stomach, with the caption “my best friends” .

The short clip begins with the camera zooming in on his upper body, inches away from the slimy creatures, all huddled together next to his ‘Almost Famous’ tattoo.
It looks like they were in a frenzy to start feasting on the blood of the bloody star Valentine.
Described as parasitic or predatory worms, leeches are closely related to oligochaetes, which include the common earthworm, and like them have soft, muscular segmented bodies that can elongate and contract.
Leeches are usually distinguished by having chorion on both ends, which are used to attach to a host in order to feed on its blood, as reported by various publications such as Wikipedia.

Considering the lack of any sound of discomfort or squirming from the musician himself, it’s probably not the first time the Houston, Texas native has pulled this kind of stunt before.
As for calling the blood-stained vermin “my best friends,” one could conclude that he may have had a relationship or two in the past involving someone who he ended up being more like a leech than a best friend.
At this point, it’s unclear if the Mainstream Sellout star uses the worms for blood rituals.
Leeches were used in medicine from ancient times until the 19th century to draw blood from patients. In modern times, they have been used to treat joint diseases such as epicondylitis and osteoarthritis, venous disease of the extremities, as well as to help rejuvenate sensitive veins and improve blood flow after a tissue reattachment procedure, according to with Mountain View Hospital.

Fox, 36, admitted to the pair’s vampiric habit of drinking each other’s blood after announcing their engagement in January.
About three months later he explained more about the ritual during an interview with Glamor UK.
“Well, I guess drinking each other’s blood can mislead people, or people imagine us with cups and we’re like Game Of Thrones, drinking each other’s blood,” he shared. “It’s only a few drops, but yes, we consume each other’s blood occasionally just for ritual purposes.”
After proposing in January, MGK and his fiancee have yet to announce when and where they plan to tie the knot.
