Machine Gun Kelly & MOM Reconnected in Public after Father's Death

Machine Gun Kelly wants the world to meet a special person in his life—his mom. On June 2, the Mainstream Sellout rapper, 32, shared a picture of himself and his mom on Instagram, captioned, "introducing … my mom." In the snap, MGK held up both middle fingers, while sitting on the ground next to his mother, who threw up the peace sign. Several fans shared their excitement for MGK in the comments section of his post, including one person, who wrote, "I'm so happy for you I will literally cry." Another fan commented, "Omg. I can't believe you are actually with her. If you are happy I'm happy for you." MGK has previously been open about his childhood trauma and his relationship with his estranged mom, who he said left him and his father when he was only 9 years old. He even spoke about his mother in the song "Burning Memories," in which he opens the track rapping, "Yeah, this one's for the mama that I never knew (Never knew)/I took acid just to burn all of my memories of you."

MGK—who was raised by his father—added, "How'd you leave your only child at nine for another dude?/Took that pain and punched my father in the stomach 'til he bled/Hit the store and stole a 40 and took that s--t to the head/All the years that you ignore me left me sleepless in the bed/I hope daddy got some kids because your only son is dead."
