    Re: He proved disloyal

    The first two are correct. The third one isn't.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Re: He proved disloyal

    You could say He turned out to be disloyal​ with the same meaning.
