The worlds of Kourtney Kardashian and Megan Fox crossed paths thanks to the close friendship of their new pop-punk partners.
The girls had a double date Saturday with their boyfriends Travis Barker and Machine Gun Kelly as the four competed in mixed martial arts at UFC 260 in Las Vegas, where Francis Ngannu defeated Stipe Miocic.
Kardashian, 41, befriended 45-year-old Barker in the VIP section of UFC Apex, just feet from 34-year-old Fox and 30-year-old Kelly, who met a year ago on the set of their upcoming crime thriller Midnight in a Grain Field.
Barker and Kelly collaborated several times, most recently with the release of their fifth studio album, Tickets to My Downfall, in which Fox also featured on the interim track Banyan Tree.
Barker has a son, Landon Escher, 17, and a daughter, Alabama Luella, 15, from ex-wife Shanna Mowclair, 46. The Kardashians have sons Mason Dash, 11, Rein Aston, 6, and daughter Penelope Scotland, 8, from former partner Scott Disick, 37.
The Poosh founder was “ready for a relationship with a more mature partner” when she started dating Barker, a source said last month, adding, “Courtney and Travis have years of friendship behind them and she's really close with Alabama, who's just a tough rock kid. -stars".
Fox and MGK, whose real name is Colson Baker, officially confirmed their relationship on Instagram in July last year, after the romance between the two first surfaced in May of that year. In the same month, she starred as his love interest in the video for his single "Bloody Valentine".
Aside from a drop of Fox's blood on the necklace, they recently sparked an engagement rumor when the star of Jennifer's Body was spotted wearing another piece of jewelry on her left ring finger. “They are very serious and plan to spend the future together,” a source said in January.
Fox filed for divorce last November from 47-year-old Brian Austin Green, with whom she has 3 children: 8-year-old Noah Shannon, 7-year-old Bodhi Ransom and 4-year-old Jornie River. Green, who is now dating Dancing With the Stars pro dancer Sharna Burgess, previously confirmed their breakup in May 2020, when Fox was first tied with Kelly.
