Machine Gun Kelly’s guitarist Sophie Lloyd has hit back at rumors circulating on social media that she had an affair with the rapper. On Saturday, Kelly’s fiancé, actor Megan Fox, hinted on Instagram that Kelly had been unfaithful before deactivating her account.

She captioned it with lyrics from Beyoncé’s 2016 song «Pray You Catch Me.» «You can taste the dishonesty/ it’s all over your breath,» she wrote. As INSIDER reports.
Fans immediately speculated that Kelly had cheated on Fox, with some putting the blame on Lloyd. «He probably got with Sophie,» wrote one person wrote in the comments section of Fox’s post, to which the actor replied: «Maybe I got with Sophie.»
In a statement on Wednesday, Lloyd’s management team addressed the speculation.
«Sophie Lloyd is a professional, accomplished musician who has been needlessly dragged into the media based off of meritless accusations made by social media,» said her team, according to People.
«Any suggestion that she has ever acted in an unprofessional manner or stepped out of her relationship are untrue,» the statement continued. «It’s disrespectful to her as a female artist and poor journalism and social commentary to be reporting anything else.»
Representatives for Kelly and Fox did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Kelly and Fox first met in March 2020 on the set of their film «Midnight in the Switchgrass.»
In May 2020, a source told E! News that the pair were «hooking up.» They went public with their relationship the next month.
Kelly proposed to Fox in January 2022. Fox shared a video of the moment Kelly got down on one knee on her Instagram.
She said in the video’s caption that after she had said yes, she and Kelly «drank each other’s blood.»
