Eminem-Machine Gun Kelly feud becomes violent after alleged beat-up

The Eminem-Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) beef has become violent, after MGK's bodyguards allegedly beat up an actor from a popular Netflix show who called the rapper out.

Gabriel 'G-Rod' Rodriguez, who recently appeared on Netflix drama Ozark, was in Atlanta on Friday night (local time) when he walked up to rapper MGK at a restaurant, website Heavy reports.

In a video, Rodriguez can be seen saying to MGK, "I'm gonna say it because it has to be said, you're a p***y for going for family!" He later told TMZ that he was especially upset because he was a husband and father of three kids.

Rodriguez claims he was later attacked by five of the rapper's bodyguards, and intends to file a lawsuit.

The confrontation follows back-and-forth diss tracks between Eminem and MGK.

On his newest album Kamikaze, Eminem labelled MGK a "little c**ksucker" and a "non-threatening blonde fairy" in the track 'Not Alike', and called him out for subliminal derogatory comments on the Tech N9ne track 'No Reason'.

The Grammy and Academy Award winner also took issue with a tweet MGK published in 2012 that stated his daughter Hailie  then aged 16  was "hot as f**k".

MGK then responded with his own diss track, 'Rap Devil' - a play on Eminem's famous track 'Rap God' - where he says Eminem is a bully acting like a baby and is so old "he can't stand up". Eminem called the song "pitiful".

Only days later, Eminem, who was the best-selling artist of the 2000s in the US, continued the feud with a new song 'Killshot', where he again insulted MGK's lyrical ability and album sales.

Police are reportedly investigating while Rodriguez is at hospital receiving treatment for facial injuries.
