Machine Gun Kelly was groped by a fan during his concert in Portland, Oregon on Thursday night (21 July).
In a video taken by a concertgoer, the 32-year-old musician was seen performing one of his hits amid the crowd at the city’s Moda Center when a fan behind him leaned in to try and take a selfie.
The fan then wrapped his arms around MGK’s waist as he tried to pull the star – whose real name is Colson Baker – closer to him for a photo.
At that point, a security guard is seen trying to keep the fan in control, but the eager concert-goer wouldn’t let go of the 'Bad Things' hitmaker in the video obtained by TMZ, and as the star walked in another direction, the fan held even tighter into him and appeared to grab his groin area.
Following the incident, the security guard forcibly pulled out the guy as MGK continued his performance.
Machine Gun Kelly is currently on his Mainstream Sellout Tour and is next slated to take the stage at the Spokane Arena in Spokane, Washington on Monday (July 25).
UNILAD has contacted Machine Gun Kelly's rep for comment.
Last month, MGK explained why he smashed a glass on his face after he was seen leaving a party covered in blood earlier this week.
The rapper and singer made headlines after going a little too wild during a performance at an after party in New York following his show at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday (28 June).
Video footage from the event saw MGK singing his song 'My Ex's Best Friend' when he took a champagne flute and whacked it against his head - a move that shocked both his fans, and his wife-to-be Megan Fox.
Shortly after, the pop punk star shared photos of his bloody face to Instagram, revealing that the impulsive move had left him a little worse for wear.
Watch the moment below:
In an interview on Late Night With Seth Meyers the following evening, MGK explained what lead him to the decision.
"You know when you clink a champagne glass with a fork to get people's attention?" he began.
"Yeah, I didn't have a fork, so I just clinked it on my head."
Elsewhere in the interview, Seth Meyers pointed out that the last time MGK had been on his late night chat show, he had cut his hand open after smashing his guitar up during his MTV VMAs performance last year.
The singer joked: "Yeah, I'm going to start having doctors around me every time I have Seth Meyers on my schedule."
