Machine Gun Kelly‘s guitarist Sophie Lloyd has found herself in the middle of the musician’s breakup rumors with fiancée Megan Fox after the actress seemingly hinted at an alleged cheating scandal. Get to know more about the talented artist amid MGK and Megan’s split speculation. 

Did MGK Cheat on Megan Fox With Guitarist Sophie Lloyd?

After Megan wiped her Instagram of all photos featuring MGK on February 12, 2023, a fan commented, “He probably got with Sophie,” referring to the gorgeous guitarist. The Transformers star shot back, “Maybe I got with Sophie,” then deactivated her Instagram account.

The question about Sophie came next to a picture Megan shared wearing a sexy black jumpsuit with her diamond and emerald engagement ring noticeably missing from her finger. “You can taste the dishonesty/ It’s all over your breath,” the actress wrote in the caption, quoting lyrics from Beyoncé’s “Pray You Catch Me,” a song from her Lemonade album about discovering husband JAY-Z‘s alleged affair.

The guitarist has strongly denied that she has anything other than a working relationship with MGK. “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 told Page Six on February 15.

“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,” her team added.

Megan also came to Sophie’s defense via Instagram on February 19 by commenting on the guitarist’s post promoting her latest collaboration with Matthew Heafy.

“How me making a joke in order to absolve this girl of a hurtful accusation somehow turned into a confirmation of it I will never understand. Why are people so … so dumb,” Megan wrote in a lengthy comment. “Sophie, you are insanely talented. Welcome to Hollywood. Your first unwarranted PR disaster. You have now been baptized by the flames of fame.”

The Jennifer’s Body actress hinted that the attention “only gets worse” as her star rises, continuing, “Just ignore it as much as you can. Middle finger up.”

Proving there is no bad blood between them, Sophie replied, “The internet is so wild! Sending so much love @meganfox.”

A rep for Sophie did not immediately respond to Life & Style‘s request for comment.

Where Is Sophie Lloyd From?

Sophie was born and raised in London, England. She was drawn to becoming a professional guitarist from a very young age.

“I started playing guitar when I was around 10 years old after listening to Led Zeppelin in the car with my dad,” she revealed in the biography section on her official website. “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 bio noted, “While her classmates spent their spare time socializing and partying, Sophie would come home every day after school to spend five hours practicing on her Yamaha Pacifica, mastering her craft until bedtime.” She listed the heavy metal bands Iron Maiden, Black Label Society and Pantera as her biggest influences.
