Fan Gropes Machine Gun Kelly While Trying to Take Selfie With Singer at Show
Machine Gun Kelly had to escape an over-enthusiastic fan's grope — particularly around his pelvic region — as the singer entered the crowd during part of his "Mainstream Sellout Tour" stop in Portland, Oregon, last week, according to TMZ and Daily Mail. "Machine Gun Kelly Violated by Fan Who Grabs His Privates at Concert," is how TMZ reported the incident.
As shown in the footage, MGK, the rapper-turned-rocker and actor born Colson Baker, doesn't seem to fight back but merely stands by as a security guard forcibly removes the concertgoer who doesn't let go of the performer. At one point, the same fan grabs around Kelly's waist and tries to take a selfie with the artist during the concert at Moda Center.

Machine Gun Kelly started the Mainstream Sellout Tour in Texas last month. The trek continues across America this summer and covers Europe in the fall. Depending on the show, it features support from blink-182's Travis Barker — a frequent Kelly cohort — and/or Avril Lavigne, Blackbear, Iann Dior, PVRIS, Trippie Redd and WILLOW.
Machine Gun Kelly's Mainstream Sellout emerged in March. It features "Emo Girl" with WILLOW and "Ay!" with Lil Wayne. Earlier this year, MGK told pop-punk bands he had earned success in that genre. Last year, he drew the ire of Slipknot fans after engaging in a spat with the metal band.
