Megan Fox has shared her support for guitarist Sophie Lloyd after Lloyd became part of the breakup rumors between the Jennifer’s Body actor and Machine Gun Kelly.

Lloyd, who plays in Kelly’s live band, was accused of having an affair with the “Bloody Valentine” rocker after Fox initially deleted all of her Instagram photos with her fiancé earlier this month. As People reported, someone commented on Fox’s Instagram that Kelly “probably got with Sophie,” to which she replied, “Maybe I got with Sophie.”

In a comment on one of Lloyd’s recent Instagram posts, Fox wrote, “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,” Fox continued. “Sophie you are insanely talented. Welcome to Hollywood. Your first unwarranted PR disaster.”

Lloyd then responded, “The internet is so wild! Sending so much love @meganfox.”

LLoyd’s management team previously addressed the MGK rumors in a statement to People that read, “Sophie Lloyd is a professional, accomplished musician who has been needlessly dragged into the media based off of meritless accusations made by social media.”

Meanwhile, Fox’s comment is part of her return to Instagram after she deactivated her account amid the initial breakup rumors. Her page now includes just one post reading, “There has been no third party interference in this relationship of any kind.”

“That includes, but is not limited to…actual humans, DMs, AI bots or succubus demons,” the post continues. “While I do hate to rob you of running random baseless news stories that would have been much more accurately written by ChatGPT, you need to let this story die and leave all of these innocent people alone now.”
