Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s relationship is not in the strongest place, Fox made clear this weekend when she unfollowed Kelly on Instagram, deleted almost all their photos together, and then ultimately disabled her account. But it’s not over, a source told Entertainment Tonight today.
Shortly after the two were photographed at a marriage counseling office, a source told the outlet that Fox and Kelly are trying to see if their relationship is salvageable.
“Megan and MGK have had ups and downs throughout their relationship, but at the end of the day, they have a lot of love for each other and a deep connection,” the source said. “They have very strong feelings for one another, so their emotions often come out in intense ways. They are working together with the goal of trying to mend things and move forward together.”
Kelly’s guitarist, Sophie Lloyd, also broke her silence on rumors Kelly may have cheated on Fox. (Fox earlier added fuel to the rumor Lloyd was involved in their relationship issues when she commented on a post suggesting Kelly “got with Sophie.”)
“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 in a 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.”
Neither Fox nor Kelly have commented on their relationship status since this weekend. A source told People earlier this week that Fox was no longer wearing her engagement ring.
“[They] had a fight over the weekend,” the source said, noting that Fox is “very upset” and at that point, wouldn’t “speak to” Kelly.
“They haven’t officially called off the engagement but Megan took her ring off,” the source said. “They have had issues in the past, but things seem pretty serious this time.”
