Brian Austin Green’s divorce from Megan Fox was rocky. The former couple filed for divorce twice, and Green asked for spousal support. They eventually split after welcoming their third baby. After a turbulent custody battle with his former partner Vanessa Marcil, Green seems to have his personal life back on track.

Green and Marcil welcomed their first child in 2002; shortly after the birth of Kassius, the couple split. The separation led to a long custody battle that affected the relationship between Green and his son. Marcil opened up about the issue publicly in November 2018.

Brian Austin Green and Vanessa Marcil met on “The Beverly Hills 90210” set when Marcil joined the cast during season nine. The two dated for several years and even had a son together, Kassius, but Marcil claimed she never loved Green.

According to Marcil, the custody battle started in 2006 and lasted more than eight years. The actress alleged that Green and Fox wanted full custody of Kassius, leaving her to see her son four days a month. On top of that, “The Beverly Hills 90210” actress said she was expected to pay child support to Green and Fox.

The soap star wrote that she did not say anything about the case sooner because she wanted to protect her son from the persistent paparazzi. However, Marcil also shared the shocking detail that Green and his then-wife, Megan Fox, had not seen Kassius in five years.

Even though the father-son relationship took a hit, Green reconciled with Kassius. In 2019, Kassius visited his father on “The Beverly Hills 90210” set, and the then 17-year-old expressed his excitement with a series of Instagram pictures.

Fox told Elle Magazine that she had to convince Green she was mature, well-spoken, and could bring other things to the table regardless of how much younger she was. Since then, the couple’s relationship has been a rollercoaster.

Fox and Green started dating in 2004. The couple met on the “Hope and Faith” set when Fox was only 18 and Green was 31, but the 13-year age gap did not faze the “Transformers” star.

In 2006 Fox and Green got engaged, but they called off the wedding in February 2009. In less than a year, the two had made up, and they eventually tied the knot in June 2010 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hawaii.

After three years of marriage, Fox and Green welcomed their first son Noah. Fox announced the news on Facebook. The “Transformers” star wrote:

In February 2014, Fox and Green had their second baby boy Bohdi but announced their separation just after a year of sharing the news. This time the split seemed final because Fox filed for divorce in August 2015, saying they had irreconcilable differences.

The split between Green and Fox was as peaceful as can be. The couple lived together during the separation and did their best to co-parent their two sons.

While Fox and Green were in the middle of their divorce, she slammed her ex-husband on Instagram for posting their children on Halloween.

A month after Fox had filed for divorce, Brian asked for spousal support because he suffered from vertigo which affected his ability to work. On the other hand, Fox had been starring in multiple films and was receiving a steady income.

While Fox and Green were in the middle of their divorce, she slammed her ex-husband on Instagram for posting their children on Halloween.

However, the reconciliation did not last long. In 2020, Green confirmed their separation after Fox was spotted with rapper Machine Gun Kelly. After nearly ten years of marriage, the estranged couple filed for divorce for the final time.

“The Beverly Hills 90210” actor posted a photo of himself wearing a cozy onesie with his four-year-old son Journey standing next to him in his Spiderman onesie and the caption, “I hope you all had a good Halloween.”

Fox continued to express how the picture perpetuates a narrative that presents her as a bad mother and Green as the better parent. Green got the message loud and clear; he deleted the post and reposted it with Journey cropped out.

Fox was not happy about the post. The actress commented under the photo and wrote, “I had a great Halloween with them yesterday, and yet notice how absent they are from my social media.”
