Machine Gun Kelly fulfils fan's request to be punched in the face
| Last updated
In very Machine Gun Kelly news, the musician just fulfilled a fan’s request to be punched in the face.
Yep, you read that right.
The ‘Rap Devil’ singer was performing at the Rock Werchter festival in Belgium over the weekend when he saw a fan holding up a sign in the front row that read: “I just came from Mexico for you to punch me”.
“Why do you want me to punch you in the face so bad?” MGK asks the man in a video he posted to his Instagram page.
The fan, identified as Marcos Cid de la Paz, responds: “I love you”.

The singer is initially hesitant, explaining: "I got rings on, dude, that sh*t’s gonna hurt. I don’t know, it’s a lose/lose for me. I don’t know if I’m going to do it. I’ll consider it.”
Later, after he performed ‘My Ex’s Best Friend’, the 33-year-old headed off the stage, walked over to the fan in the front row and punched him lightly in the cheek.
“I love you!” he yelled afterwards, perhaps in an attempt to soften the blow.
The fan seemed… happy with his punch in the face.
In the comments of Kelly’s post, Cid de la Paz thanked the singer for being 'caring' and making his dream come true.
“Thank you very much for making my dream come true,” he wrote.
“Thank you Colson for shining a light for us who live in the darkness, even when you’re feeling down. And thank you all guys for being part of this amazing band. You guys live in my heart rent free.”
Many were left rather amused by the incident, as one person wrote: "Some fans are like cults…"
Another said: "Some of you need higher standards for yourselves."
While a third commented: "This is the epitome of '[If] my favorite artist can punch me in the face and I’d thank them."
Kelly has been touring around Europe for a month now. Last month, he allowed a 13-year-old to tattoo him while backstage at one of his shows.
