Brian Austin Green Confirms Megan Fox Split: 'I Will Always Love Her'
Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox are going their separate ways after nearly 10 years of marriage.
Green confirmed the split on his podcast “…With Brian Austin Green,” after photos surfaced of Megan hanging with Machine Gun Kelly.
Opening up in an episode called “Context,” he revealed they had been trying to be apart since late last year. “I will always love her,” he said. “And I know she will always love me, and I know as far as a family, what we have built is really cool and really special.”
The couple has three children, Journey River, 3, Bodhi Ransom, 6, and Noah Shannon, 7, and he said they will “still do family vacations and holidays as a family and really make that a focus for the kids.”
Getting emotional, he added, “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.”
The “Beverly Hills, 90210” star also discussed Megan and Machine Gun Kelly, real name Colson Baker, who met while filming “Midnight in the Switchgrass.”

Brian said that while they were filming, he had a dream that there was a distance between him and Fox.
He later added, “She met this guy, Colson, on set… I've never met him… Megan and I have talked about him. They're just friends at this point.”
Green went on, “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.”
A day after the photos of Megan and Colson surfaced, Brian posted a cryptic message on Megan's 34th birthday. Along with a pic of a butterfly, he wrote on Instagram, “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.”
Last month, rumors were swirling that Megan and Brian were living apart. In photos obtained by DailyMail.com, they were seen at a parking lot in Calabasas, seemingly exchanging their kids.
After the meetup, Megan headed to Calabasas, while Brian drove to Malibu with their kids in tow.
Despite the rumors, a source recently told “E! News,” “They don't plan to file divorce right now.”
The couple has split before. In 2015, Megan filed divorce papers after five years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. At the time, a source told People magazine, “They had several conflicts that led to the divorce. Megan worked a lot last year, and she continues to work a lot. When she is away, Brian stays with the kids. Before they filed for divorce, they had disagreements about this situation.”
A year later, the couple reconciled after announcing they were expecting their third child, son Journey. Another insider shared with the outlet, “During their separation, Brian always hoped Megan would change her mind about the divorce and he is very happy that she did. They both worked hard to figure out their marriage and things seem great.”
At the time, she chatted with “Extra's” Renee Bargh about how their family was planning to celebrate Father's Day plans while she was pregnant. She shared, “[Brian] never gets to eat anything fun because my house is so clean and I make him eat really clean, too, so maybe I'll get him a German chocolate cake or something. He'll be so happy to see junk food.” Watch!
She requested a dismissal of their divorce case in August 2019.
Brian and Megan met on the set of “Hope & Faith” in 2004, and wed in June 2010.
