On Saturday April 22nd, Machine Gun Kelly suffered bad chest pains while performing at Seminole Casino, as part of his 27th birthday celebration. The pain was so severe that he collapsed backstage, after exiting the stage suddenly during his performance of his latest hit song “Bad Things.” A video that was released by TMZ.com caught him saying “At this point, I’m f***ing dying!” during the performance of “Bad Things,” which can be seen below. The pain was so severe he had to seek medical attention immediately. On Friday, April 21st Machine Gun Kelly was at the filming for a movie titled Captive State which he is featured in, The chest pains seem to have been caused from the acting he did on set which he did tweet about below the show:

Earlier today (April 24th), Machine Gun Kelly revealed that he thought he was having a Heart Attack and stated on Instagram, “For those who saw the TMZ post, here is what happened last night: i took some serious damage to my chest plate/ribs this week and during our 6th song last night I collapsed backstage and thought i was having a heart attack, What they didn’t report, was that i went back out and finished that show cuz we’re f—in champions and it was my 27th birthday and nothing can take me away from the stage.” In the video you can see singer Halsey in the background supporting MGK, and the paramedics telling MGK “Something is wrong with your heart, Your heart is beating really fast you got to goto the hospital.” However, MGK still went back out on stage and finished out the show as he told paramedics “I got to get back out there, yo tell them to keep the show going, jam or something.” Machine Gun Kelly loves his fans so much that he possibly put his health on the line to finish out the 2-3 songs he had left to perform. See the video and below from @MachineGunKelly’s Instagram. We wish MGK nothing but the best, and hope he gets well very soon and that everything is okay with his heart!
