As many of you know, Hollywood and the United States of America are places where dreams come true. And for many people, that is to become a celebrity. Some people become celebrities without knowing or wanting that spotlight. For example, famous children like Casie Colson Baker.
She is the daughter of American musician Machine Gun Kelly. And because her father is quite famous as a musician, she has gotten her fair share of the media spotlight as well.
Let’s find out more about her, shall we?
Who is her famous father?
Born Richard Colson Baker in April 1990, he is known professionally as Machine Gun Kelly or MGK. He is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, and actor. MGK is famous for his genre duality, switching and combining alternative rock and hip hop.
Between 2007 and 2010, he released four mixtapes, launching his career into the spotlight. In 2012, he released his debut studio album titled Lace Up, peaking at Number 4 on the US Billboard 200 Chart. This album contained his breakout single, Wild Boy, featuring Waka Flocka Fame.
But we are getting ahead of ourselves. Born in April 1990 in Houston, he and his family moved around the world. Fun fact: they lived in Egypt for the first 4 years of his life. The reason for all that moving is his parents were Christian missionaries.
Besides Egypt, they also lived in Germany, and then Chicago, Denver, and Cleveland in the United States. His mother left the home when he was nine years old. At that point, his father moved to Denver to live with his aunt. It was a tough childhood. Baker’s father fought depression and unemployment, all of which had a toll on the young boy.
In sixth grade, Richard Colson Baker began listening to rap while attending Hamilton Middle School. Then, he lived in Cleveland and attended Shaker Heights High School.
As a young child, he was inspired by Ludacris, Eminem, and DMX. After listening to the We Right Here track from the album The Great Depression by DMX, he was hooked on rap.
His career began in a unique way. He was the first rapper to win at the Apollo Theater. He was then featured on MTV2’s Sucker Free Freestyle.
In May 2010, he made his national debut with the single Alice in Wonderland, released on iTunes and accompanied by a music video.
It wasn’t until 2012 that he released his debut album, Lace Up. Wild Boy was the lead single for the album, with the song peaking at Number 98 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song Invincible gave him even more recognition. It was the second single of the album, and it was elected as the official theme song of WrestleMania XXVII. WWE used the song to highlight John Cena in his match. Machine Gun Kelly even performed during the event.
The album had guest appearances from Cassie, DMX, Easter Dean, Lil John, Waka Flocka Fame, Young Jeezy, and more. It debuted at Number 4 on the US Billboard 200 Chart.
Thanks to his successful music career, Colson Baker was able to venture into other industries. He had his film debut in 2014 in the romantic drama Beyond the Lights. In the movie, he played a shallow and self-important rapper named Kid Culprit. Then, in 2016, he co-starred in the drama film The Land, produced by fellow rapper Nas.
In the Netflix horror thriller Bird Box in 2018, he appeared alongside Sandra Bullock. He then played drummer Tommy Lee in The Dirt, a 2019 Netflix movie about Motley Crue.
Lately, he has been in the news due to his relationship with American actress Megan Fox. The two are still together as of June 2013. There have been several fights in the past year or two, but the two have remained together.
Her father is a supporter of cannabis
Machine Gun Kelly is open about his use of cannabis. In many interviews, he has said he smokes daily, describing cannabis as “a source of happiness and a way people can feel a little more love in their own right”.
There are many cannabis references in his music and rap persona.
Now let’s go back to MGK’s daughter and celebrity kid, Casie Colson Baker. Born in July 2009, she is in her teenage years now. Back in 2009, MGK was dating Emma Cannon, and she is the mother of his beautiful daughter.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, she has been featured on Machine Gun Kelly’s album, Mainstream Sellout. She did one track for the album.
Here is another fun fact. It was Casie who taught her dad to cook. She helped him come up with the signature blueberry pancake breakfast. During an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kell revealed said how he was always going crazy about those pancakes and that Casie taught him the recipe. He recalled laughingly, “Apparently, all you have to do is just pour blueberries in the mix”.
Casie is now a big sister to Megan Fox’s three children from her previous marriages. She has three siblings, Noah Shannon, Bodhi Ransom, and Journey River. Megan even shared a picture of Casie on her Instagram.
Relationship with her father
Machine Gun Kelly is quite attached to his daughter. He loves her optimism. In December 2021, during his appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, he talked about her positivity and innocence.
He said, “I was just walking behind my daughter in the airport the other day and she just has this walk, it’s this pure bounce, she’s so excited for life like she’s so young in her life. I’ve experienced so much in my life. I just pray to every God that exists that she just keeps that bounce forever and that no one interferes with that”.
He also said, “I will take any amount of torture that would come her way if it can just be on me so that she can keep that forever because … it’s worth living for to see that. Her voice is so sweet and it’s not tainted with what the world has to offer”.
Casie enjoys the time in the spotlight, and walks on the red carpet. So far, she has appeared several times alongside her father, the first time being in 2017, at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award ceremony.
The two are so close, she has a huge influence on his music. He says, “Like, she has her finger on the pulse of what’s hot, or if I’m doing a song and it’s the right one, she’ll confirm it”.
And she even joined her famous father on the tour of Mainstream Sellout. Truth be told, that was a family vacation, as Megan Fox also joined in for some quality time. They toured Europe to do some sightseeing and support the famous rapper.
Her father shares the Christmas spirit
Last Christmas, Machine Gun Kelly shared a photo with his mother and his teenage daughter on Instagram. It was an amazing moment, showing his love for two of the most important women in his life.
The rapper has previously stated that he is not on the best terms with his mother. But they have reconnected.
As we said before, she abandoned him when he was only nine years old, and it had a negative impact on him. His father passed away in July 2020, and he reconnected with his mother in June 2021.
Is she on social media?
As far as we know, Casie doesn’t have a profile on any social media platform. Yes, she loves the spotlight, but it seems like she is happy to stay away from social media.
She does often end up there, however. That is because her father and stepmother are quite active on social media. Machine Gun Kelly has more than 9 million followers on his profile.
As we said before, Casie Baker is just a teenage girl. She has yet to get a university degree and begin her professional career. We cannot talk about her net worth.
What we can talk about is the net worth of her father. He is the one providing for his young girl. Machine Gun Kelly has a net worth of more than $25 million.
