Ozark actor claims Machine Gun Kelly’s crew beat him up over Eminem feud


Eminem vs MGK might have just turned nasty

Ozark actor Gabriel “G-Rod” Rodriguez has claimed that he was beaten up by Machine Gun Kelly’s bodyguards after he called the rapper a “pussy” over his feud with Eminem.

The attack allegedly happened on Friday night in Atlanta, in a video obtained by TMZ, Rodriguez approaches MGK and tells him: “I’m gonna say it because it has to be said, you’re a pussy for going for family.”

This is, of course, a reference to the two rapper’s feud, which began in 2012 when MGK said that Em’s daughter, Hailie Jade, was “hot as fuck”.

Although the footage ends after Rodriguez makes the comments, he claims that in the aftermath five of the 28-year-old rapper’s entourage shoved him, at which point the actor was asked to leave the bar.

But that wasn’t the end of it, two hours later he claims he got into another confrontation with the group after he spotted Kelly and his crew hanging out around their tour bus. After they spotted Rodriguez, he alleges they followed him into his hotel lobby where he was jumped by them.

According to TMZ police sources, one guard body slammed Rodriguez and then three others started punching and kicking him in the face. It’s not claimed that MGK had any involvement in the attack.

Rodriguez – who has had roles in Ozark, Power and NCIS: New Orleans – has told TMZ that he now plans to take legal action against Kelly, although he added: “I will drop the lawsuit if we both sign waivers and meet in an octagon and go man-to-man without goons or weapons.”
