While being interviewed by red carpet cohost Keke Palmer, the actress owned her sex appeal. “I feel like I've always leaned into it, I'm not afraid to be sexy,” Fox said.

The solo excursion comes after the Transformers star and her rocker beau Machine Gun Kelly slayed the carpet the night before at the MTV VMA’s.

MGK — real name: Colson Baker — reportedly got into a tussle with MMA fighter Conor McGregor before the big event. A video surfaced showing McGregor lunging at the “drunk face” rapper as security guards had to restrain him on the MTV red carpet.

OK! reported the two “got into a fight at the top of the carpet” and “had to be pulled apart.”

“They scuffled then it settled down and Conor went for him again," an insider spilled, noting photographers on scene were unhappy with the aggressive interaction and “saying they were going to boycott Conor because they were worried MGK and Megan wouldn’t walk.”

The source continued to describe the altercation, saying “everyone was screaming,” and that “[McGregor] was ready to throw fists. Security was having trouble holding him back.”

The former UFC featherweight champion and MGK appeared to have calmed things down as the stars eventually entered the Barclays center and the rest of the ceremony went off without further incident. The singer won the Best Alternative Rock award for “My Ex’s Best Friend,” presented by rock legend Tommy Lee, whom Kelly quite convincingly portrayed in the 2019 Motley Crüe biopic The Dirt.

Following the confrontation, McGregor told Entertainment Tonight, "Nothing happened with me. I only fight real fighters, people that actually fight, you know what I mean. I certainly don't fight little vanilla boy rappers."

The heated exchange comes after Fox and Kelly sparked rumors the duo — who were first linked last May — are taking their relationship to the next step.

As the "Bloody Valentine" singer prepared for his performance, Fox was reportedly rocking a special accessory — a source squealed the model was wearing a “ring on that special finger.”
