After returning to Instagram, Megan Fox also jumped reportedly into the comments on a post from Machine Gun Kelly's guitarist, Sophie Lloyd, who also found herself in the middle of their relationship drama last week.
“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 commented.
"Sophie you are insanely talented. Welcome to Hollywood. Your first unwarranted PR disaster. You have now been baptized by the flames of fame," she added. "It only gets worse from here unfortunately. Just ignore it as much as you can. ❤️middle finger up."
Lloyd responded, writing, "The internet is so wild! Sending so much love."

She went on to call out the media itself, adding, "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."
She closed her message with a prayer hands emoji and a purple heart. Comments appear to be turned off, though at least Tori Spelling has liked the message so far.

One fan speculated right on Fox's since-deleted (along with the entirety of her IG page until today) post by commenting, "He probably got with Sophie," a reference to MGK's touring guitarist Sophie Lloyd.
"Maybe I got with Sophie," Fox replied to the commenter. The speculation caused Lloyd to respond via her representation.
"Sophie Lloyd is a professional, accomplished musician who has been needlessly dragged into the media based off of meritless accusations made by social media," the rep said in the statement.
"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."
