He's happily engaged to Megan Fox, but a few years ago Machine Gun Kelly was hoping to "snag" an underage Kendall Jenner.
The US rapper, 31, has raised eyebrows after a 2014 interview emerged of him detailing his major crush on Jenner, who at the time was 17 while he was 23.
Speaking on Fuse TV, Kelly – real name Colson Baker – was asked who his first celebrity crush was, to which he answered: "I don't care who my first celebrity crush was because right now it's Kendall Jenner.
"God damn I've said that so many motherf**king times, I hope that I'm snagging that. Don't let me move to LA … Oof, I'm finding her."
In an effort to shift the conversation to a more G-rated tone, the interviewer asked if he was "counting down the days until she's 18?".
"I'm not waiting until she's 18, I'll go now. I'm 23 dog … I'm not like a creepy age you know," Kelly said.
"I'm 23, she's 17, and she's a celebrity, there is no limits right there.
"Axl Rose, one of the biggest bad arses ever, dated a girl that was 16 and wrote a song on his first album about the girl that was 16.
"I don't care. Say what you want man. If Kendall Jenner was in your bedroom naked and you're 50, you're going."
At the time of the interview, Jenner was just beginning a burgeoning modelling career, after starring on Keeping Up With The Kardashians since she was a child.
The now 26-year-old, who is the world's highest paid supermodel, was rumoured to be dating fellow teen star Harry Styles in 2014.
Kelly, for his part, was a relatively new father having welcomed his daughter Casie Colson Baker in 2009.
This month he became engaged to Transformers actress Fox, after the pair met in 2020.
The high-profile duo made a rather gross engagement announcement on Instagram, with Fox revealing they "drank each other's blood".
Speaking to Vogue after news of their engagement, Kelly explained that there was a painful feature embedded in Fox's ring.
"The concept is that the ring can come apart to make two rings. When it's together, it's held in place by a magnet. So you see how it snaps together? And then it forms an obscure heart," Kelly said.
"And you see this right here? The bands are actually thorns. So if she tries to take it off, it hurts."
