“So, I haven’t been that active on socials.”

While MGK had some difficult news for his fans, he did have some pleasing results from the premiere of his musical film, Downfalls High.

The movie was released on Facebook on January 15, and MGK wrote: “I just got a call from the label about  Downfall Highs . The premiere weekend, we got 12 million views on Facebook, dude.”

He later corrected himself and said it had now reached 16 million views and he exclaimed on Instagram: “I’m, like, tripping out.”

Kelly has often been open about his life and in a chat with Dave Franco for  Interview, he spoke about his relationship with his late father, who passed away in July 2020, and his abuse of Adderall in the past.

He said: “I came from a father who was extremely religious and extremely strict, and wouldn’t even let me hold my pen the way I wanted to hold my pen.

“That made me rebel completely, and cut off communication completely, because I didn’t want to have any common ground with him.

“I don’t want to have that with my daughter. Honesty is the key to that relationship.

“But also, as I grow, that same person who I was when I was 25 isn’t who I am now. Currently, my drug of choice is happiness and commitment to the art, rather than commitment to a vice that I believed made the art.”
