Members of Machine Gun Kelly’s ‘crew’ wanted by police after footage emerged of them assaulting actor G-Rod after Eminem diss

He called the rapper a 'p***y' before the attack

Members Machine Gun Kelly‘s entourage are now reportedly wanted by police after footage emerged of them allegedly assaulting the actor Gabriel “G-Rod” Rodriguez.

G-Rod first claimed of the attack last month, when he shared footage of himself approaching the rapper in Atlanta’s Twin Peaks restaurant to repeatedly call Kelly a “pussy”, for referring to Eminem‘s family in his diss track ‘Rap Devil’.

CCTV footage obtained by TMZ shows the alleged subsequent attack – which took place two hours later inside the lobby of an Atlanta Hampton Inn where G-Rod was staying. It is said that the assailants include MGK’s drummer ‘R00K’, and another member of his entourage known as ‘Slim’. Machine Gun Kelly was not present during the assault.


Now, TMZ reports that Atlanta Police Department has identified at least three individuals involved in incident, and they’ve each been charged with misdemeanour battery.

It is said that two of those involved live outside of Atlanta, and won’t be extradited as the charges are only for misdemeanours. Machine Gun Kelly will reportedly not be charged, as it was G-Rod and not him who triggered the fight. G-Rod has not yet been charged.

Rodriguez, who has appeared in The Walking Dead and Power, was treated in hospital for severe facial injuries.

Rodriguez claims that he was removed from the restaurant after insulting MGK, before the rapper’s “goons descended from everywhere”.

“He gets in the cop’s face and calls him a ‘punk bitch pig,’” said G-Rod in a video. “‘Get out of my fuckin’ way you p***y ass, punk bitch. Get out of my way you stupid pig.’ Imagine if that would have been me or any other person of colour.”


G-Rod has said that he will drop a pending criminal investigation if the two fight in the ring.

“Real fucking manly of this BITCH!,” he said in a statement. “Tell him I’ll take him plus one of his goons to get him to my weight class!!! And I’ll drop all charges!!” MGP***Y”.”

Machine Gun Kelly is yet to respond to the claims and the footage.

Eminem dropped surprise album ‘Kamikaze‘ – loaded with controversial moments and taking aim at many others with a number of ‘diss tracks‘. Among them was Machine Gun Kelly who came under attack on the song ‘Not Alike’.  Kelly then hit back with the diss track ‘Rap Devil‘ – mocking his single ‘Rap God’.

The feud dates back to 2012 over comments Machine Gun Kelly made about Eminem’s daughter on social media, tweeting that she was “hot as fuck.”

However, Eminem has since stated that this was not the reason for him writing the track.

“The reason that I dissed him is because he got on—first he said, ‘I’m the greatest rapper alive since my favorite rapper banned me from Shade 45,’ or whatever he said, right? Like I’m trying to hinder his career”, he said. “I don’t give a fuck about your career. You think I actually fuckin’ think about you? You know how many fuckin’ rappers that are better than you? You’re not even in the fuckin’ conversation.”

This weekend also saw MGK the victim on an online death hoax.

Posing as news reporters from fake social media accounts, the meme-makers said the rapper had died after taking a fictions drug called “Ligma”.

According to Hot New Hip Hop,  the fake accounts were also said to be owned by Eminem fans reportedly still upset by this year’s feud between the two rappers.
