Rapper Machine Gun Kelly and Conor McGregor reportedly got into a "scuffle" at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York earlier today.
The rapper, 31, and the UFC star, 33, were photographed in an apparent altercation on the red carpet at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Things escalated so quickly the pair had to be separated, with security guards needing to pull McGregor away from the 'Bloody Valentine' singer.
"[They] got into a fight at the top of the carpet [and] had to be pulled apart," a source confirmed to Page Six, while another telling the outlet, "[McGregor] was ready to throw fists. Security was having trouble holding him back."
The source claimed the face-off was sparked when McGregor threw his drink at Kelly.

"They scuffled then it settled down and Conor went for him again," the source said, adding photographers weren't happy with the altercation as they feared Kelly would ditch the red carpet with girlfriend Megan Fox.
"[Photographers were] saying they were going to boycott Conor because they were worried MGK and Megan wouldn't walk."

It remains unclear what the scuffle was about but a rep for McGregor rep denied an altercation broke out altogether despite the photographs taken.
"Conor only fights fighters," the rep told Page Six in a statement.
Before the alleged incident, McGregor walked the red carpet by his wife Dee Devlin, and Kelly was later joined by Fox, who wore a completely sheer, skin-coloured dress.
