Earlier this year Eminem and rapper Machine Gun Kelly released diss tracks about each other. The feud reportedly started a few years ago when Machine Gun Kelly tweeted about Eminem’s daughter Hailey calling her hot when she was just 16 years old.
Well apparently an actor named Gabriel Rodriguez or G-Rod is a big Eminem fan because he confronted Machine Gun Kelly at a restaurant calling him a P-word for talking about Eminem’s daughter.
Later that night members of MGK’s entourage allegedly brutally attacked G-Rod in a hotel lobby. Atlanta police released surveillance camera footage of the attack.
Rodriguez claims that he saw Kelly and his entourage a few hours after the restaurant altercation. They allegedly shouted threats at each other, with Rodriguez claiming he even egged them on and told them he would fight them all. He’s then body slammed from behind and the rest of the crew beat him while he’s on the ground.
Kelly is not ever seen on the video, but members of his entourage were identified and charged with battery.
RODRIGUEZ WANTS MONEY FROM MACHINE GUN KELLY?
G-Rod’s attorney has said that he wants MGK to cut him a check or else he’ll be gunning for millions in a lawsuit against the rapper. He’s claiming that the attack, which they believe was ordered by Kelly, left G-Rod with serious and permanent injuries.
G-Rod though has said that he’ll drop the lawsuit and all charges if MGK will fight him one on one in the Octagon.

Kelly’s feud with Eminem goes as far back as 2012, when Kelly posted a tweet about Eminem’s daughter Hailie, calling her “hot as f***… in the most respectful way possible cuz [sic] Eminem is king”.
Kelly claimed he was later “blackballed” in the music industry for the comment. Eminem only appeared to respond this year on his diss track “Killshot”, which showed the rapper was more concerned with Kelly’s apparent assumption that he had become old and irrelevant.
The lyrics read: “Slim you’re old… Ow, Kelly, ooh, but I’m 45 and I’m still outselling you…. By 29 I had three albums that had blew… I’d rather me 80-year-old me than 20-year-old you.”
Kelly reacted to Eminem’s comments with his own diss track, where he mocked Eminem’s appearance along with his last four albums.
