Machine Gun Kelly jumped heart first into a romance with Megan Fox, immediately after her split from Brian Austin Green. His friends had concerns about the speed of their intense relationship.

Megan Fox has admitted that the sparks between her and Machine Gun Kelly were immediate when they met on the set of the film Midnight in the Switchgrass. Within two days of the pair being photographed hanging out in L.A. for her 34th birthday on May 16, Megan’s husband Brian Austin Green, 47, confirmed through deep heartbreak that their marriage was over. As a result, those close to MGK — real name Colson Baker — were concerned that he and Megan were moving too fast and that he could become a rebound romance for the sexy starlet.

“Colson’s inner circle was understandably overly cautious when he first showed interest in Megan, only because they didn’t want him to get hurt. They knew Megan just got out of a serious relationship and they wanted to make sure he took his time with things. But it’s obvious he’s fallen for her and they have a solid connection,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

“There’s no way this is a rebound for Megan. They have genuine chemistry and it’s obvious to everybody. They’re absolutely adorable together and it’s great to see him so happy,” the insider continues. Megan has revealed that she was instantly attracted to Colson after just one meeting, and knew that once they started filming together, something could happen.

The couple appeared on the podcast Give Them Lala…and Randall on July 22, with their film’s director Randall Emmett discussing the immediate connection that Megan and MGK had. “I was like, ‘Who is going to play this role?’ And he (Randall) was like, ‘Oh, we just got Machine Gun Kelly,’ and immediately, I was like, ‘Uh oh,’” the Transformers star revealed. “Because I knew – I could feel that some wild s**t was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn’t yet sure what.”

“I just felt it like, deep in my soul – that something was going to come from that,” she continued. “So then, we met on set, I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame. Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time. So we’re actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away.”

Whew! They got off to a really strong start. And things just keep getting hotter, as Colson and Megan are back in Puerto Rico filming Midnight in the Switchgrass as production is back up and running following a four month hiatus due to the coronavirus. They’ve been spending plenty of time together sharing romantic walks in the beach and indulging in adorable PDA. Colson even said he “Waited for eternity” to find Megan in an adorable July 28 mirror selfie cuddling together.

Brian initially revealed that he and Megan had officially split up after nearly 10 years of marriage on the May 18 episode of his podcast …with Brian Austin Green. He then elaborated on the May 26 episode that when Megan returned from initially filming with Colson in Puerto Rico, she told the BH90210 star that she wanted out of their marriage.

“She said, ‘You know, I realized while I was out of the country working alone that I feel more like myself, and I liked myself better during that experience, and I think that may be something worth trying for me,’” Brian recalled. While he took the news hard, he didn’t hold it against his wife. “And, I was shocked and I was upset about it,” he continued, but “I can’t be upset at her, and I wasn’t upset at her because that’s — she didn’t ask to feel that way, it wasn’t a choice she made, that’s the way she honestly felt.” The former couple is still lovingly co-parenting their three sons  Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3, and neither of the stars has filed for divorce at this point.

Machine Gun Kelly just can’t contain his feelings about his sweetheart Megan Fox. He held her in his arms and gushed over how long he’s waited to find her in a new photo.

After Megan Fox told boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly that they share the same soul, he has made a bold proclamation about about how he’s waited for “eternity” for them to find each other. On July 28, the rapper/actor shared an Instagram mirror selfie, as the pair had their arms around each other in a black and white photo. MGK — real name Colson Baker — had his hand playfully on her derriere, as the Transformers actress held on around his waist. They both stuck their tongues out for the photo, but Colson’s caption was anything but silly. He wrote, “Waited for eternity to find you again,” along with red heart and knife emojis.

Megan and Colson are in Puerto Rico where production is back underway on their film Midnight in the Switchgrass. Already they’ve been photographed taking romantic walks on the beach together while holding hands. The pair first met on the set in March before the COVID-19 pandemic caused a halt in shooting. The 34-year-old beauty said that she knew there was a deep and intense connection between them at the time, even though she was still married to Brian Austin Green, 47. Megan revealed to the film’s director Randall Emmett in his Give Them Lala…and Randall podcast on July 22 that she felt the heat with MGK right away.

“I was like, ‘Who is going to play this role?’ And he (Randall) was like, ‘Oh, we just got Machine Gun Kelly,’ and immediately, I was like, ‘Uh oh,’” Megan revealed to Randall and his co-host/fiancee Lala Kent, as well as a very happy Colson. “Because I knew – I could feel that some wild s**t was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn’t yet sure what.” That “what” turned out to be her falling really hard for MGK.

She made the revelation during the couple’s first joint interview following their romance becoming official in late May. She continued, “I just felt it like, deep in my soul – that something was going to come from that. So then, we met on set. I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame. Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time. So we’re actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away.”

Their deep connection was mutual by the time the pair got together to film the music video for his song “My Bloody Valentine.” It dropped on May 20, two days after Brian admitted that he and Megan had split up during a tearful confessional on his …With Brian Austin Green podcast. In the video, Megan steps on Colson’s face with her red manicured foot, while his mouth is taped up. And the kinky move during filming was his idea, which she predicted in advance (that’s twin flame power working!).

“It’s no secret I think feet are beautiful. And I think Megan has the most beautiful feet that exist,” Colson revealed to Teen Vogue on July 13 about his foot fetish. “And I was like, ‘Megan, you already know what I’m about to ask you.’ And she was like ‘Yeah, I literally got a pedicure cause I knew you were going to ask me that,’” he revealed. He told her to grind her foot against his right cheek, and sure enough she did it, as it is right there in the music video. So before they even began filming, Megan already knew about Colson’s foot fetish and was super cool with it. That goodness that he waited for “eternity” to find her!

It’s all love from Brian Austin Green’s ex Megan Fox, who has since moved on with Machine Gun Kelly. Megan ‘just wants Brian to be happy,’ a source spills to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY.

Megan Fox, 34, is confident ex Brian Austin Green, 47, will find the the “right” romance since his relationship with model Tina Louise, 38, fizzled. “Megan is confident he’s doing fine,” a source close to the exes spilled to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “As far as his dating life, she’s confident he’ll find the right one when the time comes,” they also revealed, noting that the Transformers actress knows Brian is “an incredible father” to their three kids Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3.

“That allows her to focus on her work and not stress while she’s away…she’s so grateful that she can rely on him and has never had to worry about leaving [the kids] with him,” the source also said. Megan and Brian surprised fans when they announced their split after nearly a decade on May 19. “The split has been easier for Megan than Brian and she is well aware of that,” a second source confirmed to HL.

Since the announcement, Megan has moved on with her Midnight In The Switchgrass co-star Machine Gun Kelly, 30. The couple have been seemingly inseparable in recent weeks, taking off to Puerto Rico earlier this month to resume filming on the Randall Emmett produced project. “Megan has a lot going on right now with filming and since they had to pause shooting because of the pandemic there’s a lot of catching up to do so she hasn’t had much time to catch up with Brian unless it’s about the kids,” our first insider noted.

Despite being busy with her new relationship and work, Megan simply wants he ex to find happiness again. “Megan is really happy and just wants the same for Brian. They’ll always respect one another and wish each other happiness,” our second insider said. The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum has been spotted out-and-about with several ladies since his split from Megan, including model Tina — even noshing on vegan tacos at her restaurant Sugar Taco — as well as Courtney Stodden, 25.

Brian opened up about his break-up with Megan on his podcast …With Brian Austin Green. “[Megan] said, ‘You know, I realized while I was out of the country working alone that I feel more like myself, and I liked myself better during that experience, and I think that may be something worth trying for me,’” Brian said on May 26. He also confessed he 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.”

Brian Austin Green looked carefree and happy — and amazing shirtless — during a day at the beach with his boys, just hours after reports surfaced that he split with Tina Louise.

Brian Austin Green is single (again) and living his best life. The same day that it was reported that the BH90210 star and Tina Louise split, Brian was spotted having a day of fun with his kids at the beach. Brian, 47, looked totally chiseled in a pair of navy blue board shorts as he frolicked in the surf with his three youngest sons — Noah, 7, Journey, 3, and Bodhi, 6. The actor laughed and played with his kids, whom he shares with estranged wife Megan Fox, splashing them in the water and running on the sand.

Hours before his daddy day in Malibu, a report surfaced that Brian and the Australian model, 38 ended their relationship after just a month of dating. Tina, according to sources who spoke to TMZ, was the one who ended it. She was allegedly being harassed by online bullies who wanted Brian to get back together with Megan; the two announced they were separating after 10 years together, in May. Tina also apparently wasn’t pleased that Brian didn’t want anything serious yet.

While Brian hits the sand with his boys, their mom, Megan, is enjoying vacation in Puerto Rico with new boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly. Brian, as a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY, couldn’t be happier to spend all the extra time at home with their kids. “Brian has the kids full time while Megan is away which he is thrilled about,” the source said. “And they love being with their dad, so it’s very easy and stress free for everyone.”

“Brian and the kids are great and happy,” they added. How sweet! Brian even got to celebrate his 47th birthday with all four of his sons. His eldest boy, 18-year-old Kassius Marcil-Green, got together with his younger brothers for a pool party. Brian called it the “greatest day” on Instagram.

Brian Austin Green is hoping that his blossoming romance with model Tina Louise will help mend his broken heart after his marriage to Megan Fox ended.

Brian Austin Green is relieved to have found affection in the arms of model Tina Louise, following the demise of his marriage to wife of nearly 10 years Megan Fox. He’s still heartbroken over the split, especially since the Transformers star she quickly moved on to a hot and heavy romance with rapper Machine Gun Kelly. But Tina has proven to be exactly what the actor needs. “Brian needed Tina right now more than he ever thought because losing Megan was really really tough for him. Tina makes him laugh and puts him in such a good mood that he hopes it continues. He is very happy to have her in his life. There is something very special about her that is making him happy,” a source close to Brian tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

“Tina is like a breath of fresh air for Brian and exactly what he needed right now. She is such a positive person and always laughing, smiling, and looking on the bright side of things. In the handful of occasions he’s spent with her, he likes her more and more each time. Brian was understandably in a bit of a slump for a bit after his split from Megan, but Tina has definitely lifted his spirits,” a second source tells us EXCLUSIVELY.

After an initial early wading into the dating waters with model Courtney Stodden, 25, Brian was first photographed grabbing lunch with Tina at her Melrose Blvd. vegan restaurant Sugar Taco on June 30. It came almost six weeks after the BH90210 actor announced that his marriage to Megan was over during the May 18 episode of his podcast, …With Brian Austin Green. It came two days after Megan was photographed celebrating her 34th birthday with MGK, with Brian nowhere to be found.

“Brian is nowhere near over Megan and he probably never will be. But this is a healthy step in getting to the right mindset of moving on and moving forward with his life. It’s been a rough few years with him personally, and everyone around him is just happy he has someone to spend time with,” a third insider tells us EXCLUSIVELY. “Because Megan has made it clear she’s moving on, so it’s important to see him doing the same.”

Brian told fans via his podcast that when Megan returned home from filming a movie, she explained that she felt happier without him. “She said, ‘You know, I realized while I was out of the country working alone that I feel more like myself, and I liked myself better during that experience, and I think that may be something worth trying for me,” he recalled to his audience.

“And, I was shocked and I was upset about it,” he continued, but added that he “can’t be upset at her, and I wasn’t upset at her because that’s — she didn’t ask to feel that way, it wasn’t a choice she made, that’s the way she honestly felt.” The couple is still maintaining a healthy co-parenting relationship with their three sons, Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3.

Fresh off his split from wife Megan Fox, Brian Austin Green was spotted on back-to-back dates with Tina Louise & Courtney Stodden! Sources tell us EXCLUSIVELY how Brian feels about both ladies.

Brian Austin Green, 46, appears to be enjoying the single life! The Beverly Hills, 90210 star has been spotted hanging with both Australian model Tina Louise, 39, and Courtney Stodden, 25, after the end of his nearly 10-year marriage to Megan Fox, 34 — but he’s not in the market for another “serious” relationship. “He likes that sexy almost bad girl looking vibe that Megan has so it’s no surprise he would find Tina attractive,” a source spills to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY of his date with the Australian model.

“He is not looking for anything serious, though. This will be a long healing process for him,” they also added, referencing the end of his nearly 16-year long relationship with Megan. Hours after Brian was spotted having lunch with Tina at vegan SugarTaco — which she co-owns — the Los Angeles native got cozy in a hot tub with Courtney! The steamy hangout was revealed in a video that the 25-year-old shared to her Instagram account, which the actor wasn’t expecting her to do. “[Brian] likes his privacy and he probably never thought Courtney would release a video he gave her.”

“He is very normal and doesn’t consider himself a celebrity so it probably never occurred to him she’d do that,” the source explained. “He is famous because he loves to act, not because he wants to famous,” they also noted of Brian, who appeared on last summer’s spin-off BH90210. Shortly after the clip was shared, Brian voiced his bizarre opinion of Courtney in a paparazzi video. In the short clip, obtained by TMZ, he describes Courtney as “super nice but disappointing.”

While some fans took the comment as shade towards the former pageant queen, our source clarified that he didn’t intend to throw shade.”Brian is one of the nicest guys on the planet and would never go out of his way to bash someone.  Despite his comments, he really would never mean to disrespect or shade anyone,” the insider dished.

“Friends could never see him seriously date Courtney because of her age and personality. If anything, that would just be a fun time for him. Brian likes a girl with a lot of depth to her and one who is taken seriously,” they also said, noting that his four kids — including Kassius, 18, with ex Vanessa Marcil, and Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3, with Megan — and work are his focus. “He’s just trying to focus on his kids and work. He cannot wait until this pandemic ends and he can get back to filming. It’s what makes him happiest,” the source concluded.

Just hours prior, the BH90210 hunk had lunch with gorgeous Instagram model Tina Louise, spending two hours at vegan restaurant Sugar Taco on trendy Melrose Blvd. Afterwards, the pair left in Brian’s car. Tina looked so cute in a black halter mini-dress and black leather ankle boots for her lunch with Brian, while he went casual in a white graphic t-shirt and jeans. The pair sat at a table against the restaurant’s front window, and paparazzi were able to capture their leisurely meal and adoring facial expressions.

However, she isn’t the only lady he’s wining and dining. Brian and Courtney were seen dining at Mejico Grill in Agoura Hills, CA on June 15! But, a source told HL there’s nothing romantic going on between the actor and model at the moment. “Brian and Courtney are just friends. They were out having a casual lunch, nothing more,” the source close to Courtney told us. “They both got out of long-term relationships around the same time, so they’re able to see eye to eye on a lot of the same things in terms of what they’re going through. There were no flirtations going on and it doesn’t seem that either one of them are in that mindset right at the moment,” the source explained. “They just chatted and had a relaxing lunch, and they might hang out again. But again, it was purely platonic.”

He feels like he totally scored with Megan and nobody could blame him, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

“Megan is absolutely stunning, super down to earth and it seems like they just fit together. His friends are really happy for him and they just don’t want him to get hurt.

Courtney Stodden was spotted out and about with Brian Austin Green on June 13, just over three weeks after the actor shared that he and his wife, Megan Fox, had split. Here are five things you should know about Courtney Stodden.

Courtney Stodden is spending some quality time with Brian Austin Green. Roughly three weeks after the 90210 actor, 46, admitted that he and his wife of nearly ten yearsMegan Fox, 34, would be going their separate ways, Brian was spotted out and about with Courtney, 25, on June 13. The pair appeared to be in high spirits after their lunch date at a Mexican food joint in Los Angeles. Although some may not recognize her, Courtney has been an outspoken, honest activist and media personality for years. Here are five things you should know about Courtney Stodden.

1) She rose to fame after competing in a teen beauty pageant. Originally from Tacoma, WA, Courtney competed in the 2010 Miss Washington Teen USA pageant when she was roughly 16 years old. Although she did not win, Courtney went on to find her place in the music industry, releasing songs like “Car Candy,” “Hurting People,” and “We Are America” among others. After her mother, Krista Keller, quit being her manager, Doug Hutchison took over.

The two chose to go their separate ways, divorcing in March 2018 with documents finalized by 2020. Courtney previously opened up to HollywoodLife about her marriage and how her fraught relationship with father played a factor in it. “I actually do have some daddy issues, so why not throw all of that creative pain into this song and just be honest about it,” she said, referencing the song she released in 2018. “It pretty much cuts deep in my life because I’m having issues with my own father right now, and him and I have been on and off for quite some time, and it’s affected me deeply, so it’s just a fun way to kind of express my heartbreak,” she told HL in December 2018.

3) She suffered a tragic loss in July 2016. Courtney and Doug initially announced that they were expecting their first child in May 2016. Three months later, Courtney suffered a miscarriage, which left a devastating impact on the then-21-year-old. “I was suppressing my emotions and finding distractions, partying with friends and having a different persona,” she shared during a 2017 interview. “I want some sense of normalcy now. I don’t know if I’m coping in the most healthy way.” Since then, Courtney has found balance in her life.

4) Courtney is a determined activist. Courtney has been a spokesperson for PETA — People of the Ethical Treatment of Animals — for a number of years, often promoting a vegetarian lifestyle for the organization. More recently, Courtney has been showing immense support for the Black Lives Matter movement on social media, adding the link to the organization to her bio and attending rallies in Los Angeles.

5) She has an adorable dog. Courtney has the sweetest little white Pomeranian named Cartier! The singer often shares photos of the pooch on her social media, like the one above. But when she’s not posting on her account, fans can check out Cartier’s own Instagram!

Brian Austin Green ventured outside in Malibu to pick up a cup of coffee on June 5. The outing happened not long after the ‘BH90210’ star revealed he was ‘upset’ to learn that Megan Fox wanted to split.

Brian Austin Green, 46, is still flying solo. The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum ventured outside to grab his coffee for the day at Vintage Grocers in Malibu, alone, on June 5. He kept his outfit casual for the coffee run, wearing a plain white T-shirt, denim joggers, checkered Vans sneakers and a grey face mask that was hanging off his chin. Of course, his wedding band was also off during the outing, taken two weeks after the actor rocked listeners of his  …with Brian Austin Green. podcast with news of his split from Megan Fox on May 18.

“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,” Brian revealed on the podcast, assuring that they’d still be committed to peacefully co-parenting their kids Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3. However, he did admit that Megan’s decision to breakup was a bit blindsiding.

“She said, ‘You know, I realized while I was out of the country working alone that I feel more like myself, and I liked myself better during that experience, and I think that may be something worth trying for me,’” Brian recalled in his next podcast episode, released on May 22. Megan had been filming her new movie, Midnight in the Switch Grass, in Puerto Rico with Machine Gun Kelly, 30 (whom she’s recently stirred romance rumors with).

“I was shocked and I was upset about it,” Brian further revealed on the podcast, but added, “I can’t be upset at her, and I wasn’t upset at her because that’s — she didn’t ask to feel that way, it wasn’t a choice she made, that’s the way she honestly felt.” The amicable split isn’t a front! “Brian and Megan are both really great, hands on parents. Even in the separations they have had over the years, they always put the kids first and Megan stayed in the family home with the kids while Brian went elsewhere,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife after the split.

“Brian also has his oldest son [Kassius Lijah Marcil-Green, 18] who would spend time with him often at his Malibu home,” our source added. “They felt that was the best for the kids and Brian would see the kids as much as he could. He’s a great father, very engaging and hands on.”

Meanwhile, fans have been wondering more about whom Megan has been spending time with! Before the split was even confirmed, Megan and MGK (real name Colson Baker) were seen on a food run in Los Angeles on May 16. Then, surprise — four days later, it was revealed that they co-starred in a steamy music video together for MGK’s song, “Bloody Valentine.” However, the punk rock rapper “had zero to do with Megan and Brian’s split,” another source, who’s close to Brian and Megan, EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife on May 19. “That decision was made before he [MGK] came into the picture.”

“Right now it’s a friendship, but of course because she’s now single everyone is reading more into it. They are having fun together and spending time together,” our source further clarified. “She thinks very highly of him and she’s free to see whomever she wants so the door is open for more to happen but it’s not a sure thing. Right now Megan is all about finding herself as a single woman, she is not looking for any kind of relationship.”

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green announced they were splitting after nearly 10 years of marriage, however the couple both remain very ‘hands on’ when it comes to their kids.

Brian Austin Green, 46, and Megan Fox, 34, may be parting ways, but the pair are just as committed as ever to co-parenting their three children Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3. A source close to the couple revealed the duo, who have also raised Brian’s eldest son Kassius, 18, were putting their kids needs first. “Brian and Megan are both really great, hands on parents. Even in the separations they have had over the years, they always put the kids first and Megan stayed in the family home with the kids while Brian went elsewhere,” the source told HollywoodLife exclusively. “Brian also has his oldest son who would spend time with him often at his Malibu home. They felt that was the best for the kids and Brian would see the kids as much as he could. He’s a great father, very engaging and hands on.”

The source added that the pair were able to transition into co-parenting quite easily, as they’ve done so in the past. “They know how to co-parent well in separations because they’ve done it before. They always put the kids first though. Megan also had a very close relationship with his oldest son and included him in everything. She took the role of step-mom very seriously.” Although Brian’s Malibu home isn’t as big as the family home the couple shared, the kids are still spending time with their dad. “Right now the kids are still with Megan most of the time but Brian sees them very, very often,” the source dished to HL.

“His place in Malibu isn’t that big and it’s more of a bachelor pad. Megan won’t go out of her way to not have a relationship with Kassius but now that he’s older, he has his own life. He’s still included in everything for the kids like birthday parties and holidays. They’re going to try to still be a family for the sake of the kids,” they added. Brian broke the unexpected news that the couple were splitting on the May 18 episode of his podcast, …With Brian Austin Green, and the grief in his voice was apparent.

“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,” Brian said of Megan. Nevertheless, the family is sticking together; Brian revealed they’ll “still do family vacations and holidays as a family and really make that a focus for the kids.”

Brian Austin Green isn’t letting his split from Megan Fox keep him at home and alone. He headed out on a Target run during quarantine and showed off his buff muscles to shoppers in a sleeveless shirt.

Brian Austin Green, 46, showed that life soldiers on after dropping the heartbreaking news that he and wife Megan Fox, 34, have split up one month shy of their 10th wedding anniversary. The former Beverly Hills 90210 star hit up a Target store in Westlake Village, CA on May 19, just a day after sharing the breakup details with fans. The actor showed off his muscular arms in a sleeveless black t-shirt from the yoga-inspired athletic brand Spiritual Gangster, which he paired with long shorts.

Brian appeared to be in decent spirits with a slight smile on his face, and he wasn’t alone. The former Anger Management star was joined by his 18-year-old son Kassius (by ex Vanessa Marcil, 51) for the shopping trip. B.A.G. donned sunglasses as he made his way though the parking lot after finishing his shopping trip. He wore his protective face mask down around his neck once he was outside the store, allowing his handsome face to be seen. Brian carried a black leather backpack over his shoulders, but that was his only accessory other than his sunglasses. His wedding band was noticeably absent from his left hand.

Brian broke the news of his split from Megan on the May 18 episode of his podcast, …With Brian Austin Green. With obvious sadness in his voice he told listeners, “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,” Brian said of Megan. The now-estranged couple share three sons, Noah, 7, Bodhi, 6, and Journey, 3. While their marriage is coming to an end, their life as co-parents will continue on. Brian revealed they’ll “still do family vacations and holidays as a family and really make that a focus for the kids.”

On the verge of tears Brian continued, “It sucks when life changes and something that you’re used to, that you’ve been doing for 15 years, you try and not get rid of but you change. There’s the unknown aspect…there’s that pit in my stomach.” Brian revealed that he doesn’t want to damage the incredibly close bond he built with the Transformers star, admitting, “I really don’t want Megan and I to be at odds…she’s been my best friend for 15 years and I don’t want to lose that.”

The couple first met when Megan was just 18-years-old and Brian had a guest role on her ABC sitcom Hope and Faith. The chemistry was instant, and the pair on to wed six years later in an intimate Hawaiian sunset ceremony on June 24, 2010. Now they’ve split up just a month shy of the decade mark.

Megan was spotted out and about on May 16 — her 34th birthday — with rapper Machine Gun Kelley (real name Colson Baker), who she’s co-starring with in the upcoming film Midnight in the Switchgrass. Brian addressed photos of Megan an MGK together by explaining, “She met this guy, Colson, on set…I’ve never met him…Megan and I have talked about him.” He continued, “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.” How kind! He really does want to remain on good terms with Megan.
