Last weekend, actress Megan Fox deleted most photos of herself with fiancé Machine Gun Kelly and posted a carousel of photos of herself wherein she quoted Beyoncé’s Lemonade lyrics, “You possibly can taste the dishonesty/it’s throughout your breath.”
Fox then unfollowed her fiancé, and followed rapper Eminem, who has been feuding publicly with MGK for years. Soon after, she deleted her account entirely.
The web was quick to leap to the conclusion that Fox and MGK were experiencing relationship trouble, and a source told Page Six that they were right. Fox allegedly found “DM’s and text messages” on Machine Gun Kelly’s phone that led her to “imagine he has been having an affair.”
Nonetheless, that doesn’t suggest they’re over. One other source told People who Fox is “still upset” following these revelations, however the couple “are working through their issues and have not split.”
“Megan continues to be upset but is just not giving up on their relationship,” the source continued. “He feels the identical way. They’re getting skilled help because they need things to work out.”
The source continued, “They’re broken up, but Megan is seeing where they stand. She desires to see what they will salvage.”
As for Machine Gun Kelly, he supposedly “really desires to make up.”
Before her account disappeared, fans were debating the possible reasons for the couple’s fall out within the comments section of Fox’s last Instagram post. One fan suggested he had cheated with a girl named Sophie, believed to be in reference to guitarist Sophie Lloyd, who tours in Kelly’s band.
“He probably got with Sophie,” they wrote.
Fox replied in a comment, saying, “Possibly I got with Sophie.”
Lloyd’s management team has refuted these rumors, releasing an announcement that reads, “Sophie Lloyd is an expert, achieved musician who has been needlessly dragged into the media based off of meritless accusations made by social media.”
They added, “Any suggestion that she has ever acted in an unprofessional manner or stepped out of her relationship are unfaithful. It’s disrespectful to her as a female artist and poor journalism and social commentary to be reporting the rest.”
