Rapper Machine Gun Kelly is struggling to deal with the intense paparazzi attention his budding romance with model Amber Rose has garnered, insisting the invasion of privacy "makes you rethink this whole fame thing".
The Wild Boy hitmaker has been linked to Wiz Khalifa's estranged wife for the past month and he appeared to confirm speculation the pair is dating during a candid interview with New York radio station Hot 97 on Wednesday (20May15).
Addressing his relationship with Rose, Kelly said, "Everything was completely natural, it wasn't anything I had expected or planned or anything like that. When the universe throws something your way or things happen, I'm one of those people that goes with it."
However, Kelly, who teamed up with his girl's ex on 2013 track Mind of a Stoner, admits the added media scrutiny has left him feeling a little overwhelmed because he prefers to keep his personal life private.
He continued, "I had no idea what came with that (dating Rose) and it'd be a lie if I didn't say it's a struggle everyday to cope with. One of the most anti-spotlight people ever and one of the most in the spotlight people ever... It makes you rethink this whole fame thing again."
Rose filed for divorce from Khalifa in September (14) after just a year of marriage. The former couple has a two-year-old son named Sebastian.
