He told The New York Times: ‘It sucks because I really just want to just scream and cry and sit in my room and just wait for someone to come tell me it’s going to be all good.’

The Big Time Adolescence actor added: ‘He’s so stoked that I’m playing guitar now. He called me the other day and told me that he’s really starting to enjoy my music. And he’s super proud of me.’    

He and his missionary father recently reconciled, and he’s previously opened up about how his rebellious adolescence led to a 25-year rift between them.

The Bloody Valentine artist told British GQ last July: ‘I’d say sorry to my father. I have such a rule-abiding, amazing daughter and I was such a rule-breaking, sh***y son. 

‘The legal fees, the tens of thousands of dollars from the times I got arrested, the finding out your son missed a whole semester of high school because he was waking up and pretending to go but never going…’

He continued: ‘I don’t know how he did it and I get why it took us 25 years to finally get along.’

Machine Gun Kelly became a father himself back in 2008, when he welcomed daughter Casie Colson, 12, with ex Emma Cannon.
