One tweeted: “Out of all the things Machine Gun Kelly has done.. this is by far THE WORST!”

“Why the f*** does @machinegunkelly have leeches on him right now?” added another. 

A third said: “I just, unfortunately, had to witness leeches hanging off the body of Machine Gun Kelly. I’m gonna be sick.”

Chipping in, a fourth person wrote: “I’m going to have nightmares about them after seeing that story as I’m about to sleep.”

However, another follower claimed that it was a ‘beneficial’ practice, saying: “It’s called leech therapy.

“Do your research people! They serve many benefits. I’m gonna say it’s for his heart.”

Healthline states that leech therapy is used to ‘secrete peptides and proteins that work to prevent blood clots’.

It’s claimed they leave blood flowing to wounds which help them heal.

The 31-year-old made headlines recently when he claimed he ‘stabbed himself’ in the early days of dating Fox while trying to impress her.

Speaking about the incident on The Tonight Show, he told host Jimmy Fallon: “This was also right when I was starting to date Megan.

“It was just a bad night.”

The ‘Tickets to My Downfall’ hitmaker explained that his pal Travis Barker had gifted him a knife engraved with the title of his album. 

Kelly claims he threw the knife up in the air, intending to catch it again, saying: “Cause, you know how you throw it up and you’re supposed to catch it?

“I looked at [Fox], and I was like, ‘Check this out’. 

“And I was like, ‘Ugh!’. 

“The next morning, as soon as she left, I was like, ‘Yo, I need stitches real quick’.”
