Brian Austin Green is seeking joint custody of his children with Megan Fox. According to Green’s divorce petition response, the actor is requesting joint physical custody of their kids: 8-year-old Noah, 6-year-old Bodhi, and 4-year-old Journey.
The papers were filed on November 25, which is the same day his estranged wife first filed her own divorce petition. The document cites irreconcilable differences as the cause for divorce, and while it did not request child support, the papers did request spousal support for himself and for Fox. Green also requested that both he and Fox pay their own legal fees and court costs throughout the course of the court proceedings.
The petition Brian Austin Green filed closely mirrors Fox’s, who also cited irreconcilable differences and requested joint physical custody of their three children. Where the two differ, however, is the fact that Fox is seeking to terminate the ability for either Green or herself to be awarded spousal support.
Another difference is the date of separation, with Green claiming they separated in March 2020, while Fox claims they split in November 2019.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans of the couple, but this isn‘t the first time Megan Fox has filed for divorce from her husband of 10 years. The Transformers star previously filed for divorce in 2015, five years after they tied the knot, but the following May, Fox became pregnant with their third child and confirmed that the two of them had reconciled.
Fox officially filed to dismiss her divorce case against Green in April of 2019, only to split a few months later, according to Megan’s date of separation.
While the reason behind their split is still up in the air, Green confirmed the news of their separation on an episode of his podcast earlier this year.
“Neither one of us did anything to each other. She‘s always been honest with me. I’ve always been honest with her,” he shared back in May. ”We’ve had an amazing relationship. 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.”
Closely following the couple’s split, Fox sparked a romance with musician Machine Gun Kelly.
They first met back in March while filming Midnight In The Switchgrass, though production had to be postponed due to the pandemic. In May, photos emerged of Fox and Kelly cozying up to one another while out and about in Los Angeles. More recently, they’ve been seen packing on the PDA during dinner dates and Fox even appeared in the music video for his song, “Bloody Valentine.”
