One of the celebrity couples to call it quits in the midst of the pandemic is Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, who have decided to split (again) after a decade of marriage and three children together. While there was speculation about the couple’s state of affairs, Green confirmed the news on an episode of his podcast, saying:
“Neither one of us did anything to each other. She’s always been honest with me. I’ve always been honest with her. We’ve had an amazing relationship. I will always love her. 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.”
There were rumors that Fox was dating rapper Machine Gun Kelly after appearing opposite him in his music video “Bloody Valentine.” They were seen out and about together, but there was no confirmation that they were more than friends.
However, this week saw a shift in that narrative, as the couple was seen out in public holding hands in Sherman Oaks, California, on Monday. On top of that, Kelly posted an Instagram story of a romantic picnic with the caption “in love.” While Fox’s face isn’t show in the video, it’s pretty clear that she’s the woman who got the roses and bento box. I’d say that it is officially on.
Fox and Kelly originally started out as friends, which Green confirmed on his podcast. He explained that Fox had informed him of the friendship and they discussed Kelly when the original pictures of the two of them went public.
“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. 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.”
The timing of this relationship rollout does feel slightly suspect, though, after photos of Green out with reality star Courtney Stodden hit the gossip mill on Monday as well. The 90210 star was seen having lunch with Stodden, who recently finalized her divorce from The Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison.
Stodden shot to fame (or infamy) after marrying Hutchison when she was only 16 years old and he was 50. A source told TMZ that Green and Stodden were just friends from social media.
