Writer: Florey DM
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green are splitting after almost a decade of marriage.
19 May – There have been rumours circulating of Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green ending their marriage, further strengthened by the cryptic Instagram post made by Green a couple of days ago after Fox was spotted out and about with Machine Gun Kelly.
"Eventually butterflies get bored sitting on a flower for too long. They start feeling smothered. It's a great big world and they want to experience it," he posted.
Now ExtraTV is reporting that the actor has finally confirmed the split on his podcast "...With Brian Austin Green".
Green opened up in an episode called "Context", where he stated that he and Fox had been trying to stay apart since late last year. Fox, after returning from several weeks of filming a project, initiated the notion to spend some time apart.
"It sucks when life changes and something that you're used to, that you've been doing for 15 years, you try and not get rid of, but you change. There's the unknown aspect... there's that pit in my stomach...
"I really don't want Megan and I to be at odds... She's been my best friend for 15 years and I don't want to lose that," he added, after saying that he will always love her and he knows that she will always love him.
Megan Fox posted this photo on her Instagram, showing off family time with Brian Austin Green and their three kids.
He also talked about Fox's relationship with Cleveland rapper-actor Colson Baker, more popularly known as Machine Gun Kelly.
The two met on the set of "Midnight in the Switchgrass". Green admitted he has never met the rapper in person but he and his wife have talked about him.
"They're just friends at this point," he said.
"I trust her judgment. She's always had really good judgment. I don't want people to think her or he are villains or that I was a victim in any way."
Fox and Green tied the knot in 2010. The 34-year-old actress and 46-year-old actor are parents to three children: 3-year-old Journey River, 6-year-old Bodhi Ransom and 7-year-old Noah Shannon.
This isn't Fox's first attempt at leaving Green. She previously filed for divorce in 2015, citing irreconcilable differences, but the couple reconciled a year later after announcing that they were expecting their third child.
In April last year, it was reported that the husband and wife were set to star in family action-adventure thriller, "Dakota", their first movie together. Though there's been no update on that since it was announced and no word yet on whether the casting will remain considering their split.
