Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly have not officially ended their engagement, People reported Monday afternoon, but their relationship seems to be in a bad place. A source told the outlet that the couple “had a fight over the weekend.” Fox “is very upset” and “won’t speak to” Kelly.
“They haven’t officially called off the engagement but Megan took her ring off,” the source continued. “They have had issues in the past, but things seem pretty serious this time.”
The source did not specify what the fight was about and did not address internet speculation that infidelity made have been an issue between them. Fox stoked the rumor herself when she quoted Beyoncé’s Lemonade song, “Pray You Catch Me,” in her most recent Instagram caption: “You can taste the dishonesty/ it’s all over your breath.”
Fox also removed almost all her photos with Kelly and unfollowed him on the platform. She responded to a fan comment alleging Kelly may have cheated on her with a woman named Sophie (some believe this to be guitarist Sophie Lloyd, who plays with Kelly’s band). Shortly after that, Fox disabled her Instagram.
Neither she nor Kelly have responded to reports saying their relationship is in trouble.
The two first started dating in spring 2020. In a November 2021 British GQ interview, Fox described their intense bond.
“This is a very intense relationship,” Fox said. “Our souls chose this to absolutely have to face our shadow selves; to face things about ourselves we didn’t want to have to know, that we tried to push away.”
Kelly added, “It should be light [like first love], but also we go to hell with each other. It’s ecstasy and agony for sure… I don’t want people to think anything’s perfect with us. I didn’t say it was the darkest fairy tale for no reason. God help you if you would’ve met us last Saturday.”
