Machine Gun Kelly’s female guitarist, Sophie Lloyd, has responded to rumours claiming she’s the reason behind the singer’s alleged split from Megan Fox.
“Sophie Lloyd is a professional, accomplished musician who has been needlessly dragged into the media based off of meritless accusations made by social media,” her management team exclusively told Page Six in a statement on Wednesday.
“Any suggestion that she has ever acted in an unprofessional manner or stepped out of her relationship are untrue. It’s disrespectful to her as a female artist and poor journalism and social commentary to be reporting anything else.”
Lloyd has been close with MGK ever since she joined his “Mainstream Sellout Tour” in May 2022.
The rock guitarist was looped into drama between the Bloody Valentine rocker and Fox after performing on stage with MGK at Sports Illustrated’s The Party in Scottsdale, Arizona, over the weekend.
As Page Six previously reported, Fox set the rumour mill on fire during Super Bowl 2023 weekend when she shared a cryptic Instagram post, removed all pics of her fiance from her feed and eventually deactivated her account.
Fans immediately speculated that Fox’s behaviour implied MGK had cheated on her, with some putting the blame on Lloyd.
“He probably got with Sophie,” one person wrote in the comments section of Fox’s post, to which the actress replied, “Maybe I got with Sophie”.
Lloyd did not respond to the comment or accusations at the time. Instead, she reunited with boyfriend Christopher Painter just in time for Valentine’s Day.
The two have been dating for over five years and consistently gush over each other on social media. He’s also been spotted supporting Lloyd at plenty of her tour shows with MGK (real name: Colson Baker).
“Today marks a very special day. It was the day I asked you to be my partner in crime. And 5 years later that is still very accurate,” the drummer and sound engineer wrote via Instagram on January 20.
“Thank you for everything you do. Thank you for your thoughtfulness, kindness, generosity, care, silliness and your love. You get me like no one else does and have been my rock for 5 solid years. Here’s to many more, partner.”
Meanwhile, Fox, 36, and MGK, 32, spent Valentine’s Day together, seemingly trying to overcome the reported argument they had in Arizona ahead of the rocker’s SI performance.
They were photographed driving in a car together in California on Tuesday after meeting up at a building in Agoura Hills that houses various couples and marriage counsellors one day prior.
Reps for Fox and MGK have not responded to Page Six’s requests for comment.
The two have yet to publicly address split rumours or provide any additional context regarding the actress’ social media behaviour.
