Machine Gun Kelly opened up about the early moments of his relationship with now-fiancée Megan Fox while appearing on The Drew Barrymore Show on Monday, May 23.

"Can I ask how you guys met? Did you get set up on a date?" Barrymore asked, via YouTube.

"We were filming a movie and... which ironcially I took because, the only reason I took the movie is because they were like, 'Your scene is with Megan Fox.' And I was like, 'I'll take the movie,'" Kelly recalled.

According to Kelly, he got a gut feeling that led him to remain outside of his trailer amid scenes. And, within a short period of time, he was asked to join Fox for lunch in her own trailer.

"I stayed outside the trailer and my gut is always right and I'm grateful for it because for some reason I knew she would invite me to lunch and then all of the sudden someone came over and they were like, 'Megan wants to know if you want to have lunch in her trailer.' And I was like, 'Oh my God, I'm so surprised. Yeah, absolutely.' [I] had like a whole bag packed," he laughed.

"Because I knew, I could feel that some wild sh-t was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn't yet sure what. I just felt it like, deep in my soul — that something was going to come from that."
