It was couples night for Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly as they teamed up with Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian to chill out after the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday 2021.
The famous duos reunited after the event ended to have dinner together in New York City. Fox, 35, and her rapper boyfriend, 31, were pictured having dinner and chatting at a restaurant with Barker, 45, and Kardashian, 42.

The low-key dinner followed an eventful night for the couples – which got off to a controversial start for Kelly, in particular. The rapper, who performed his new single on the show with help from Barker on drums, was involved in a VMA red carpet altercation with MMA fighter Conor McGregor.
McGregor yelled at Kelly and Fox, a presenter for the night, and swung his cane at Kelly. As the pair came face to face during the scuffle, McGregor was held back by security before the interaction escalated further.
Also at the VMAs, Kardashian and Barker marked a milestone in their relationship when they posed together for their first red carpet appearance as a couple. Barker and Kardashian arrived in matching all-black ensembles. The couple displayed their PDAs to the cameras, sharing a kiss and holding hands as they walked the red carpet.

Inside the ceremony, Kardashian and Fox teamed up to introduce their boyfriends, who together perform Kelly’s new single “Papercuts.”
“I’m a huge fan of this upcoming performer. I’ve watched him grow, and not just as an artist, but also as a person,” Fox said on stage before Kelly’s performance.
Kardashian, praising Barker, added, “I’m a fan too, and I think his drummer is super hot,” before Fox told the crowd, “New York, I need you to be really strong for our future baby dads. “

Fox and Kelly first met on the set of their movie Midnight in the Switchgrass and have been romantically linked since the summer of 2020, when Kelly formalized their relationship with an Instagram post stating that he had “waited for eternity” to find Fox.
Kardashian and Barker, who were friends long before things got romantic, have been dating since January and went public with their relationship in February.
The two couples appear to have grown closer over the past year, teaming up for several double dates. In March, Kardashian and Barker joined Kelly and Fox for a UFC 260 event in Las Vegas. And just a month later, in April, Barker and Kardashian helped celebrate Kelly’s birthday with Fox as the four of them went to a restaurant together to mark the occasion.
