An insider claimed that McGregor had thrown his drink at MGK earlier.

"They scuffed, then it settled down and Conor went for him again, " the source added, observing that Conor's action had upset photographers as they were saying "they were going to boycott Conor because they were worried MGK and Megan wouldn't walk."
