Megan Fox And Brian Austin Green Should Never Get Back Together. Here's Why

Hollywood is filled with beautiful people, but there's something about acting duo Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green being together that was damn near illegal (look at those glowing faces). The two met on the show Hope & Faith in 2004, where Green guest-starred briefly. In the midst of their on-again, off-again relationship, the two eventually married in June 2010. 

Almost ten years together and three kids later, Green confirmed that he and Fox and separated in a May 2020 episode of his podcast ...With Brian Austin Green. In an episode titled "Context," the actor went in-depth about how he felt about the breakup and about his former love being seen rebounding with rapper Machine Gun Kelly. (After ten years, he can have a say right?) 

The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum clarified that he and Fox didn't split because either person did anything wrong (even though Courtney Stodden might have something to say on that). According to Green, "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." 

You might be thinking, "Hey, it sounds like there's room for yet another reconciliation between these two," but hold that thought. Just because Fox and Green split amicably (or so it seems), that doesn't mean they should ever get back together. Trust us, we researched this. Here's why.

Megan Fox realized she enjoys being alone

During his podcast, Brian Austin Green said that he and Megan Fox had been growing apart since the end of 2019. According to Green, his wife had been out of the country to shoot a movie for about five weeks when he supposedly texted her to basically ask, "Is our marriage okay?" Fox apparently replied, "Let's talk about it later." Classic anxiety builder.

When Fox returned to their California home, she explained that during her time alone overseas, she felt more like herself and liked herself better. Green said she wanted to try living a more solo life. While Green was upset, he said he agreed to separate for some time — to "meditate or whatever." When he saw that she wasn't changing her mind, he had to make peace with her decision.

"We've been together for 15 years; we've been married for ten; we have three amazing children together, [but] there's a sense of loss," he said on his podcast. "How do I go on with this big part of my life that I've always known and loved and shared changing? What does that landscape look like?"

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green lived apart for months

It's no secret that Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green both like to keep their personal lives under wraps, but when you're one of the hottest couples in Hollywood, it's immediately noticeable if you begin spending time in different homes. According to a May 2020 article from The Sun, the California couple had "lived apart for several months" — Green in Malibu and Megan in Calabasas. They reportedly agreed to co-parent their three children (Noah, Bodhi, and Journey) and were allegedly seen picking up/dropping off the kids in a Los Angeles parking lot in April 2020.

"Megan and Brian love each other very much but just can't live together," a source told The Sun. "Megan and Brian have faced difficult times in their marriage and have somehow worked them out each time and their friends hope this is no different." 

Welp, this time was different. In fact, Fox made that crystal clear when she publicly moved on to another relationship following her split from Green.

Megan Fox is dating Machine Gun Kelly

The rumor mill has had a lot to say about Megan Fox and rapper Machine Gun Kelly — who now wants to be called by his legal name, Colston Baker. According to the gossip, the co-stars began dating in early May 2020 while filming Midnight in the Switchgrass.

According to the Daily Mail, the pair was seen out together in Los Angeles, booed up, hand-holding, and sharing a "passionate kiss before driving away." That makes them paparazzi official, right? To add even more honeymoon vibes to this coupling, Fox starred in Kelly's music video for "Bloody Valentine." A source told People that "the relationship seems too new and not serious enough for Megan to introduce him to her kids," but "Megan seems very happy."

On a May 2020 episode of his podcast, Brian Austin Green said he'd never met Kelly, but revealed that he and Fox had spoken about the rapper. "I trust her judgement, she's always had a really good judgement. I don't want people to think her or he are villains or that I was a victim in any way," Green said. As of writing this article, it seems everyone is moving forward in a healthy manner, which is always for the best.
