In a classic example of some under-the-wire paperwork the night before a holiday, Megan Fox has filed for divorce from Brian Austin Green.
Fox filed papers in LA Wednesday, TMZ reports. The actress, 34, is seeking joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s three children — 8-year-old Noah Shannon, 6-year-old Bodhi Ransom and 4-year-old Journey River — and wants the ability to forestall spousal support for both halves of the couple.
TMZ also has the response from Green, 47, who agrees to most of her requests, though he apparently would like spousal support to remain on the table. The couple’s filings also differ on the date of their separation: Green puts it at March 5, 2020, while Megan says they split in November 2019.
The pair’s protracted separation has turned increasingly contentious as of late. Fox came after Green on Instagram over Halloween weekend, charging him with “feeding the pervasive narrative that I’m an absent mother, and you are the perennial, eternally dedicated dad of the year.”
“You have them half of the time,” she added. “Congratulations you truly are a remarkable human!”
Meanwhile, Fox made her red-carpet debut with her new beau, rapper Machine Gun Kelly, 30, at the American Music Awards this week. The couple have been dating for almost six months after meeting on the set of Randall Emmett’s “Midnight in the Switchgrass.” Also making its debut was a new tattoo on Fox reading “el pistolero,” which some fans took as a reference to MGK.
Fox popped up in Kelly’s music video for “Bloody Valentine” in May, the same month her split from husband Green was confirmed. Since then, she and Kelly, self-described “twin flames,” have become known for their public declarations of love, including when Fox called MGK an “achingly beautiful boy” in a steamy Instagram post.
In September, Kelly proclaimed he fell in love for “the first time” with Fox.
“I didn’t know what [love] was until me and her made eye contact,” Kelly said on the “Howard Stern Show.” “That’s when I was like, ‘Whoa.’ ”
