When Megan Fox became the love interest in the Transformers franchise, she was engaged to fellow actor Brian Austin Green, a small time TV star (appearances on Baywatch and Melrose place fill his IMDB page). But as soon as she hit the big time, there was speculation over how much longer their 4-year relationship would last. There was a recent rumor that they called it off, which was surprising because the day after the “news” broke, Megan slept over at Brian’s house and visited his elementary-age son at his school. Now it’s been revealed that they simply hit a rough patch – like most relationships do – and have entered couple’s counseling.
“They didn’t break up,” an insider reports exclusively to In Touch. “They hit a rough patch. But in every long-term relationship, people go through ups and downs.” Indeed, though they were rumored to have ended their two-year engagement in February, Megan, 22, and Brian, 35, seem to be sticking to their regular routine: This week, the Transformers star took Brian’s 6-year-old son, Kassius, to school as she normally does, and the pair were also seen holding hands in public. “These two are very much in love and plan to be together for a long time,” says a friend. Another friend adds that recently, Megan and Brian, who have been together since 2004, even agreed to seek help for their relationship problems. “In early March, they decided to enter counseling in hopes of staying together,” says the pal. “It was a mutual decision. Lots of couples go to therapy together, and they are committed to try and make it work.” “He’s a really great person,” says Megan of Brian. “When I’m not working, I’m at home [with him] all the time.”

I’m not gonna lie – Megan Fox is smokin’. She could probably have any guy in Hollywood, starting first and foremost with her Transformers costar Shia LeBeouf. The fact that she and Brian have stayed together so long says something very positive about both of them. A break up and subsequent rebound relationships would keep her in the press, which would be important for her career. But instead she is intent on keeping her life just as it was before she got famous. You’ve got to give her some respect for that.
