Actress Megan Fox and rapper Machine Gun Kelly's (MGK) relationship has been under public scrutiny for months. However, the couple has officially broken up after cheating allegations surfaced. Megan ended their engagement after discovering that MGK had cheated on her with guitarist Sophie Lloyd.
Sophie Lloyd's Rise to Fame
Sophie Lloyd, a 27-year-old guitarist, first gained popularity in 2011 when she created a YouTube profile that has since amassed over 800,000 followers. She has been playing the guitar since she was a child and studied popular music performance at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute, where she graduated in 2018.
Lloyd's website features a statement about how she started playing guitar, which reads: "I started playing guitar when I was around 10 years old after listening to Led Zeppelin in the car with my dad. Because I was a bit of an outcast, I had a lot of time to practice, and this gave me an escape from reality, helped me overcome my anxieties and really gave me a sense of fulfillment."
The Controversial Affair
Machine Gun Kelly announced in May 2022 that Lloyd had joined his band.
However, fans have been speculating about a possible romantic relationship between the two ever since. Megan Fox's followers have been pressing Lloyd to explain the situation on Instagram, but she has yet to address the matter publicly.
Fox's recent post on Instagram is a testament to her apparent heartbreak. The post featured a series of photos of herself and a video of an envelope being burned in a fire pit. The caption read, "You can taste the dishonesty/ it's all over your breath," which are lyrics from Beyoncé's song "Pray You Catch Me" from the 2016 album Lemonade.
The Internet Breaks with the News
Many of Fox's followers have commented on the situation, with one fan asking if it was true that MGK "got involved" with Lloyd. Fox responded with a tongue-in-cheek remark, "Maybe I got with Sophie," alongside a fire emoji.
Nevertheless, Megan deactivated her Instagram account after deleting all photos and videos of her with MGK, including a post announcing their engagement in January 2022. Additionally, she began following rapper Eminem, who has had a public feud with MGK for years.
Lloyd's popularity has increased since she joined MGK's band for the Mainstream Sellout Tour, which visited venues such as New York's Madison Square Garden and Cleveland's FirstEnergy Stadium. Lloyd has since shared many photos of herself and the band on her Instagram page.
Most recently, Lloyd posed with MGK and other bandmates at the Sports Illustrated Super Bowl party in Arizona on Saturday.
