Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green are officially over! Green confirmed the split on his podcast “…With Brian Green,” and he spilled all the tea. Fox previously filed for divorce a few years back, but the couple had tried to give it another shot. It looks like that didn’t work out as well as they hoped, and now everyone is probably a little more than excited to learn that Fox is single again (she probably won’t date you though…)
So what went wrong with their marriage?!
Megan Fox was recently spotted with Machine Gun Kelly, which sparked rumors that she and her husband Brian Austin Green were heading for divorce. Then, on Fox’s birthday, Green shared an interesting Instagram post.
He posted a photo of a butterfly with the caption, “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.”
Fans immediately began to speculate that this was about the couple’s split. “Chances are, the butterfly will eventually realize that it was a mistake to leave the beautiful flower that it was very lucky to have found in the first place…” one Instagram user commented (ok, shoot your shot girl!).
“I mean, we have a lot of life left,” Green said about their split on his podcast. “So the paths have started gone in separate ways for now. They could come back together. They may not. We don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t want to make any predictions with that because I have no idea.”
He said that his relationship with Fox was amazing, and that “I will always love her and I know she’ll always love me.”
So what went wrong exactly? Well…here’s where Machine Gun Kelly comes into the mix.
Fox and MGK were filming Midnight in the Switchgrass late last year. Green and Fox were not feeling particularly close before she left for the shoot, and Fox admitted that she wanted time apart when she returned.
“She said, ‘I realized when I was out of the country working alone that I feel more like myself and I liked myself better during that experience and I think that might be something worth trying for me,'” he said. “I was shocked and I was upset about it but I can’t be upset at her because she didn’t ask to feel that way.”
Green continued to explain that he fully respects how she feels, saying, “It wasn’t a choice she made, that’s the way she honestly felt. We talked about it a little more and said let’s separate for a bit… and so we did.”
