Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green’s strange marriage
Coming off of a rocky six-year relationship, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green finally married in 2010. All people who adore them had already seen its share of ups and downs in the spotlight. Their marriage hasn’t gone smoothly either. And shortly after tying the knot, many people were wondering if their union would even last.
They’ve absolutely beat the odds. And there are two more children for their families. So their family has 4 children, including Green’s son from a previous relationship. However, their growing family has also added some tension for the couple like conflicting ideas about gender roles within their marriage. And one of them is Fox’s admission that things are far from peachy-keen in the Fox-Green household. Resentment reportedly pushed her to the edge of divorce. Just only her got shock everyone with a surprise pregnancy.
Yup, this relationship transforms more than a Transformers action figure. There’s never a dull moment with these two. Here are all the odd things about Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green’s marriage.
It was young love for her
In 2004, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green met on the set of Hope & Faith. At that time, she was only 18 years old. She had just started her acting career a few years earlier in the Olsen twins’ movie, Holiday in the Sun. But Green, in fact, was already 30, a father and an actor whose glory days on 90210 were behind him. Still, she actively pursued him.
She told Elle magazine (and we’re cringing already) that she was “Oh my Goodness, I have to be with you”. In her world, he’s not a threat, he’s not some a-hole that’s going to cause a lot of troubles. Green was obviously reluctant to date Fox because of her age. She had to convince him that she was slightly more responsible and well-spoken. And that she also had other things to bring to the table besides being 18.
Somehow, Green found a way to ignore the age gap, so Fox was successful in that sense. Although age ain’t nothing but a number as many might say. Their age gap still makes numerous people feel a tad bit uncomfortable.
Did she get busy with Sam Witwicky?
Megan Fox became one of the hottest stars in Hollywood right after starring in the 2007 film, Transformers. But some unsavory chatter boiled up about her time with the blockbuster franchise.
Her co-star, Shia LaBeouf, told details (via Us Weekly) some information. He told them to imagine that they’re on the set for six months. It seems like someone who’s rooting to attracting you, and you’re rooting to attracting them. In layman’s terms, LaBeouf was implying he and Fox hooked up on set. LaBeouf said that he never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time he spent with Megan was their own thing, and he thinks everyone can see the chemistry onscreen.
Somebody asked many times if Fox and Green were in a relationship at the time he supposedly hooked up with the actress. LaBeouf said more than eight times that he doesn’t know, before adding that it was what it was. Yeah, he doesn’t sound guilty. At all!
Nobody wants to believe that Fox cheated on Green prior to their 2010 wedding but LaBeouf’s answer leads us to believe that. Maybe, just maybe, their professional relationship crossed the line at some point.
We’re over! Now let’s get married!
Megan Fox found herself fired from the Transformers franchise around the year 2009 after released big news. She compares director Michael Bay with “Hitler” in an interview. That indeed didn’t sit well with producer Steven Spielberg. On top of that, her relationship with Green had also hit a wall. So all two of them called off their engagement earlier that same year.
However, in a surprising twist, Fox and Green went from separating to getting married in a private ceremony in Hawaii in June 2010. E! News released that news. It makes us consider how fast their relationship went from riot to wedded bliss. And, might we add, Green’s son from an earlier relationship, Kassius, was the only guest in participation. We can’t help but wonder. Do their families and friends approve their quickie nuptials?
She knows how to egg him on
As Megan Fox’s career continued to struggle, so her relationship with the press grew increasingly strained. According to TMZ, there is a conflict between Brian Austin Green and a photographer escalated. It happened when Fox yelled to Green if he is going to let the photographer get away with that. Clearly, that was enough to rile Green up big.
TMZ reported that [The photographer] alleges Brian defended Megan’s honor by hauling off and also pummeling him, causing severe injuries. To add fuels to the flame, [the photographer] claims Brian threw his iPhone into the deep blue sea. Let’s hope he had insurance on that phone.
A man standing up for his lady is cool and all. But these two need to learn how to chill before someone actually gets hurt. On the other side, a couple that fights the paparazzi together stays together, right?
She got dolled up before giving birth
In September 2012, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green got their first son, Noah Shannon Green. Not before a nerve-racking car ride to the hospital, Fox told Access Hollywood that she was screaming for an epidural. That accident happened when [Brian Austin Green] was driving her to the hospital because her water broke on its own. And she has immediately felt an orange level of pain alert. It was so intense. And she thought she was going be really tough and make it. She was going labor to like 8 cm, but the first contraction that she got was horrific.
Despite the excruciating pain, Fox still wants to look her best by any means necessary. She recalled that she had wet hair, so she was trying to blow dry it before she went to the hospital. Fox didn’t want to go to the hospital with wet hair.
It’s rather strange that she couldn’t put her glam routine on the back burner for just one day, no? Then again, it wasn’t just like any day. It was the birthday of her child, for goodness sake!
She was actually bringing home the bacon to support him
When Megan Fox filed for divorce in 2015, the public roasted Brian for asking support from Fox. This guy had good enough reason to request financial help from his estranged wife.
TMZ uncovered court documents that showed Green suffered from vertigo. He had been unable to work after an accident exacerbated his medical condition. The gossip website reported that Brian and Megan were driving when a drunk driver hit them. Brian also says that the guy was going around 50 MPH and it was severe enough for the airbags to deploy.
The fact that Fox is the supporter in their relationship is NBD, but it does make us wonder. Did she call off the divorce just so she can be free from his burden of the foreseeable future?
She went back to apologize Bay to pay the bills
After her very public dispute with controversial director Michael Bay, she took a departure from the Transformers movie franchise. Megan Fox’s career went into a downward spiral and considering Brian Austin Green’s medical condition and irregular employment. Someone had to bring home the money to support their growing family.
That’s when the “This is 40” star reportedly spread an olive branch to her old Transformers director. Radar Online reported that she swallowed her pride. Then she picked up the phone and spoke with him to clear the air and apologize. Fox told him that she is thankful for having a role in the movie [sic] in the first place. It was completely out of line to say what she said. The so-called plan worked quite well. After that, Bay casts Fox as April O’Neil in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. And he also stated on his website that they are bringing Megan Fox back into the family.
It seemed like somebody was looking up some news. But Fox would soon figure out that being a working mom could cause tension to her marriage.
The real reason she ends their marriage
In August 2015, Megan Fox filed for divorce because of irreconcilable differences. Some sources said that the problem was Fox’s career. An insider told People that Megan worked a lot last year, and she continues to work a lot. And when she is away, Brian still stays with the kids. Before they filed for divorce, they had disputes about this situation. A frustrated Brian Austin Green wanted another more life than just being a dad.
However, even after Fox filed for divorce. The couple continued to obtain photographs and reportedly committed to maintaining a stable home life for their sons. Okay, so let’s sum up what the rumor mill has told us. He apparently needed her to financially support him. But he threw a hissy fit when she tried to earn a living for their family? Ugh. You can’t have it both ways, Brian!
Brian, you ARE the father!
In April 2016, a probably single Megan Fox surprised the entertainment world. She declared that she was pregnant with her third baby. And for a moment, she wouldn’t tell who the father was, and netizen sent Hollywood into a tizzy.
After months of playing coy about the state of their relationship, Fox called off her divorce in July 2016. And she also confirmed that they were planning for the arrival of their third child during their separation. Brian always hoped that Megan would change her mind about the divorce. And he is very happy that she did. They both worked hard to understand their marriage and things seem great.
They wouldn’t be the first couple to consider a child during a breakup. Jessica Alba and Cash Warren, paparazzi are looking at both two. But the timing behind this baby’s conception is super clumsy, don’t you agree?
She felt ‘electricity’ the first time they touched
After meeting on the set of Hope & Faith in 2004, Fox said being clueless about what to concern for Beverly Hills 90210. Telling Cosmopolitan (via OK!), Fox said that she didn’t know who he was since she was too young.
This is proof that she didn’t love him because of his heartthrob status. Instead, he was attracting her in a much deeper way after that fateful meeting. She said that the first time she saw him, she got butterflies. And how about the first time he casually touched her? There was so much electricity. Fox doesn’t want to sound corny or cliché, but she does believe that they must live this part of their lives together.
She went on to label Green as her soulmate, and we don’t doubt that at all. Only a couple who’s meant to be together can transmit electricity just by touching. Unless, of course, somebody doesn’t use dryer sheets.
She’s still looking for love
When we thought this pair was on its way to a lifetime of blissful marriage. Megan Fox threw a curveball. It occurred on Hollywood Medium (via People) during a 2018 appearance. The show’s host, Tyler Henry, seemingly connected with Fox’s spirit guides. And he asked her that he’s seeing green, green, and green. Does that mean anything to her at all? Fox then answered that’s her husband’s last name. Um, duh!
As Henry sank deeper into the session, he described the past two years of Fox’s life as a recovery feeling. The actress opened up in a way we weren’t expecting. She explained why she took away from that was this is a time for her to really focus on healing herself emotionally. And not unlike her mom, she wants to herself. She also wants to prioritize her kids and making sure they’re okay. In the future, she will reveal her love.
Wait, does this mean she hasn’t revealed her love yet? Isn’t that her husband’s job to do the revealing? We’re all kinds of confused, and yet not necessarily surprised. It’s likely that their past relationship struggles continue to haunt them.
They’re determined to stick it out
In a 2017 interview with People magazine, Brian Austin Green stated. He and Jennifer’s Body star are going in it for the long haul. He said that they’re fighting and disagreed on things. But he doesn’t want to go anywhere and she doesn’t. So they stick it out.
And he wasn’t kidding by the time April 2018 rolled around. The couple was putting on a united front while playing in the sand in Hawaii. Their vacation destination is the exact same place where they got married. And also it is where they have their honeymooned eight years prior, according to Us Weekly. Aww. How romantic and sentimental, right?
And don’t surprise if they decide to add another baby to the mix, as well. Not just because Megan Fox is in the ‘clothing’ business, Green also talked about it and he’ll leave it.
Despite their rocky relationship history. It’s good to hear that these two celebrities are willing to fight for their marriage. No matter how strange it may be.
