Machine Gun Kelly says his new movie, “Good Mourning,” was inspired by what we thought was a breakup text from fiancée Megan Fox.

“I wrote the movie for her because she was unknowingly the cause of the spiral. She sent me a text just like in the movie,” the singer, who directs and stars in the stoner comedy, told Extra at the Los Angeles premiere this week.

“[My character] spirals over a text that he doesn’t really understand and he can’t get a hold of her, and that was what was happening to me.”

MGK, 32, explained that he had “written so many songs” and used “all these other outlets” to deal with heartache in the past, so he needed something different this time around.

“I was, like, spiraling so hard. I needed somewhere else to go with it,” he recalled. “I was like, ‘I’m just gonna write a movie.’”

Of Fox’s reaction, MGK said he shared the script with her on her porch steps. “She was like, ‘This is what you were thinking the whole time?’” he remembered.

The “Emo Girl” singer plays a movie star named London Clash in the film, whose world is “turned upside down when he must choose between pursuing his one true love and landing a life-changing, starring role in a major motion picture,” per IMDB.

The comedy also stars Fox, Dove Cameron, Becky G and Whitney Cummings, along with MGK’s close pal Pete Davidson.

“We were supposed to shoot for eight hours, it turned into like 16 hours because we couldn’t stop laughing,” he shared. “[Pete] was improvising when I was in the editing station. I was like, ‘OK, we got to keep that, we got to keep that, too.’ Everything he said was hilarious.”

During the interview, MGK was also asked whether he and Fox, 35, would ever consider eloping like their pals Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian. The two tied the knot at the One Love Chapel in Las Vegas last month – though the nuptials weren’t legally binding.

“I want to kind of just let, let the world see that as it comes,” MGK said of his own plans with Fox, playing coy on any further details.

“Good Mourning” hits theaters and On Demand on May 20. In the meantime, MGK and Fox will be in Las Vegas this weekend for the 2022 Billboard Music Awards.

The self-proclaimed “twin flames” – who have been engaged since January – famously turned heads at last year’s awards show by packing on major PDA while posing for pics on the red carpet.

Fox left little to the imagination in a black Mugler dress with cutouts, while MGK opted for a tux with his tongue painted black.
