Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly fell fast and hard for each other on the set of "Midnight in the Switchgrass" in March 2020.
Though the serial killer thriller was put on hold one week into shooting due to the pandemic, the costars began spending time together in Los Angeles.
Fox's outings with the musician, whose real name is Colson Baker, paired with confirmation that she and her husband of 10 years, Brian Austin Green, had separated led fans to wonder if she was dating the "Bad Things" singer.
And when Kelly dropped the "Bloody Valentine" music video, in which Fox plays a dominatrix, people speculated that their romance carried over off of the screen.
They've since confirmed their relationship and even offered some details into their immediate connection during their first joint interview with "Give Them Lala ... With Randall."
Here's a timeline of their relationship.
March 2020: Kelly and Fox met while filming "Midnight in the Switchgrass" in Puerto Rico.
The actors first met on the set of "Midnight in the Switchgrass," a serial killer thriller directed and produced by Randall Emmett. Fox was cast first in February, and Kelly joined shortly after in early March.
Once they were in Puerto Rico, they immediately began spending time with each other. Emmett shared a photo of the duo after they filmed a fight scene on Instagram along with two seats with Kelly and Fox's names next to each other just three days into shooting.
The project was postponed due to COVID-19 one week after production began, and the cast and crew returned home.

After the "Midnight in the Switchgrass" cast returned from Puerto Rico, the costars were seen picking up food together in Calabasas in photos published by the Daily Mail.
Fox sat in the passenger seat of Kelly's Aston Martin in the photos. According to the outlet, they drove back to Fox's gated home after picking up their meal.
Nearly a month before Kelly and Fox's outing, reports surfaced that the "Jennifer's Body" actress was isolating separately from her husband of 10 years, Brian Austin Green.
The couple was spotted in a parking lot swapping their three children — Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3 — and Green wasn't wearing a wedding ring, leading people to wonder if they'd broken up.
May 16, 2020: Green posted a cryptic message on Fox's birthday.
On the actress' 34th birthday, Green shared an Instagram photo of a monarch butterfly perched on a purple flower.
"Eventually butterflies get bored sitting on a flower for too long. They start feeling smothered. It's a great big world and they want to experience it," he wrote.
Though the "Beverly Hills, 90210" actor didn't mention Fox by name, the fact that he wrote the message on her birthday amid reports that she'd moved on with Kelly led fans to believe the "smothered" butterfly was a metaphor for his wife.

"Megan has been working on a movie with Machine Gun Kelly and gotten close to him. They are hooking up and have been for a little while," a source told E! News.
The source added that Fox and Green had separated and are "taking time apart."
"She has something going on with Machine Gun Kelly that she is excited about," the source said. "The movie will be starting up again soon and they are happy to get back to work and continue being together."

The actor confirmed that he and Fox had been separated since the end of 2019 during an episode of his podcast "...With Brian Austin Green."
"I will always love her, and I know she'll always love me and I know as far as a family what we have built is really cool and it's really special," he said, explaining that they still plan on taking trips as a family and celebrating holidays together.
Green continued, "It sucks when life changes and something that you're used to, that you've been doing for 15 years, you try and not get rid of but you change. There's the unknown aspect and that's really scary. There's that pit in my stomach. I really don't want Megan and I to be at odds. At the end of it all, she's been my best friend for 15 years and I don't want to lose that."
The actor also took an opportunity to address the rumors surrounding Fox and Kelly, telling listeners that he's never personally met the musician.
"Megan and I talked about him and they're friends at this point, and from what she's expressed, he's a really just nice, genuine guy. I trust her judgment. She's always had really good judgment," Green said.
He continued, "I don't want people to think that her or he are villains or I was a victim in any way with any of this — because I wasn't. This isn't something new for us. This is something new for people to experience and hear about in the press, but it's not new for us."
May 18, 2020: A source told People that Fox only sees Kelly when her kids are with Green.
"They have been spending time together at Megan's house in the past few weeks," the source told People. "They seem to have fun and look happy together. Megan only sees him when the kids are with Brian."
The source didn't confirm whether or not Fox had met Kelly's daughter Casie Colson Baker, who he shares with his ex Emma Cannon.

From rolling around in bed together to nearly kissing several times, the video fueled existing romance rumors.
The "Transformers" actress also lip-synced Kelly's lyrics, such as "I'm calling you girlfriend, what the f---," and, "I'd give everything up tonight if I could just have you be mine."

"I said 'Sail' was my favorite music video, but for other more personal reasons 'Bloody Valentine' might now be my favorite video," he said during an interview with Teen Vogue.
Kelly has previously hinted at a foot fetish, so Fox wasn't surprised when he wanted to feature her feet in the video.
"It's no secret I think feet are beautiful, and I think Megan has the most beautiful feet that exist," he said.
Kelly continued, "I was like 'Megan, you already know what I'm about to ask you.' She was like, 'Yeah, I literally got a pedicure just because I knew you were going to ask me that.'"
The singer also explained that Fox helped him choose the house where they shot the "Bloody Valentine" video and wore some of his favorite clothes while they filmed.
July 22, 2020: They gushed about their immediate connection during their first joint interview.
The couple sat down for their first interview together on an episode of "Give Them Lala ... With Randall," in which Emmett, the director of "Midnight in the Switchgrass," asked about their early interactions.
Fox recalled learning that Kelly had joined the cast during a table read.
"I was like, 'Who's going to play this role?' And he was like, 'Oh, we just got Machine Gun Kelly.' And immediately, I was like, 'Uh oh,'" Fox said.
She continued, "I knew. I could feel that some wild s--- was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn't yet sure what. I just felt it like, deep in my solar plexus that something was going to come from that."
When the costars were filming in Puerto Rico, their trailers were directly next to each other, according to Kelly, who said he'd wait outside to "catch one glimpse of eye contact" with the actress.
"She would have to get out of her car," he said, adding, "There were like five steps between the car and the trailer. I would just sit there and hope."
Fox said that she considers Kelly to be her "twin flame," which the actress described as a soul that has "ascended to a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time."
"We're actually two halves of the same soul," she said. "I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away."

Green spoke about the moment he found out about Fox and Kelly's relationship during an interview on the "Hollywood Raw" podcast.
"I found out in my own way. And that's as much detail as I'll give you on that one. I didn't read about it or anything like that," he said.
The actor continued to explain that both he and his ex remain committed to co-parenting their kids.
"I think it's going as well as it can," Green said, adding, "There's no rule book to it. There's no way of doing it right or doing it wrong. We are learning as we go. The important thing for us is just communicating as much as we can."
Noting that their behavior has the potential to affect their children, Green said that parents have a responsibility to make sure their kids feel "safe in it and feel loved."
"Everyone still loves and respects everyone, things are just different. It's not bad different, it's just different," he said, adding that he wishes Fox "the absolute best in everything."
"I want her to be completely happy, for her, for the kids. That's super important. No one wants to be around somebody that's unhappy, nothing good comes out of that. That's a terrible situation," Green said. "We are taking it day by day."
The actor continued to call the timing of their split "insane" and "unfortunate" since "the news cycle is a bit bigger than we were prepared for" due to the coronavirus.
"It is what it is," he said.
August 5, 2020: Fox posted an Instagram photo with Kelly for the first time.

Hours after Fox posted the black-and-white selfie with Kelly, Green published photos that appeared to be in direct response to her tribute.
The actor posted a photo of his 18-year-old son Kassius, whom he shares with his ex Vanessa Marcil, along with pictures of Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 4, whom he shares with Fox.
He wrote: "Achingly beautiful boys...... My heart is yours"
The caption was nearly identical to Fox's message about Kelly.
