Megan Fox abandoned Brian Austin Green when he was ‘seriously ill’ in 2014

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green are over, yet again. They reportedly separated several months ago, and we only found out about recently. BAG seems fine – he’s already talked about how he’ll always love her, and he seems to truly wish her well. This is sort of stale tea, but Megan and BAG’s relationship and marriage was never really “on solid ground.” When they were just dating, they broke up several times, then they called off their engagement at least once, and once married, they split up yet again and Megan even filed for divorce. My point is that they were always off-and-on. According to Page Six’s sources though, Megan did leave BAG one time when… he was really sick.

Insiders are furious with Megan Fox after she split from Brian Austin Green for the second time. Sources say that in 2015, the “Transformers” actress dumped her “Beverly Hills, 90210” star husband around the time he was seriously ill with a stroke-like syndrome that left him bedridden and barely able to move — only to take him back and dump him all over again a few years later. Green became sick with a terrifying undiagnosed brain condition around December 2014, and he spent more than six months in bed.

“He could barely lift his head,” said an insider. Meanwhile, Fox left Los Angeles to go to New York to shoot “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” in the spring of 2015. Sources say that when she returned to Hollywood, she seemed suddenly very keen to end their marriage, and she filed for divorce in August.”

But then they reconciled. We’re told that after the trauma of both the illness and the breakup, Green worked to rebuild their marriage. Then — according to Green, who discussed the news on his podcast, “With Brian Austin Green” — she broke up with him again earlier this year after nearly 10 years of marriage. But we’re told that insiders haven’t forgotten that Fox dumped Green at what he called in a podcast about his illness “the worst time in my life.”

Green said they split after Fox returned from shooting a movie abroad and told him she realized that she “liked [herself] better” while she was alone on the shoot.

I mean, I think Megan is an a–hole for abandoning her ill husband when it got inconvenient to her schedule. But I also think that Megan and BAG were on-and-off constantly, as I said, and that only one of their little breakups involved her abandoning her sick husband, so cut her some slack! No, LOL, I have no idea. BAG never forgets! Well… and? He and Meghan still had kids together after that!!

    So he was unable to work or care for their children for months and his awful wife decided to earn some money to support their family. What a horrible bitch.

    Who knows what goes on in people’s marriages. I’m sure she had her reasons, I obviously don’t know whether they were good ones.

    • FHMom says:

      This is what I thought, also. I mean, where do they get their money from? I don’t think either of them is in a position of passing up a good paying job.

      • WigletWatcher says:

        Think BAG is still in massive debt from his last marriage and backed child support. They need the money and he strikes me as having a victim mentality from previous interviews.

      • Chile says:

        This leak appears to be from his team? Promoting his podcast and getting back at her? She pursued him when she was 18 and he was very reluctant – her own words.

    • Bryn says:

      I thought they had all sons? I know shes been vocal about them wearing whatever they want but im pretty sure they are all boys

    • Lwt00 says:

      My thoughts exactly.

    • Sojaschnitzel says:

      Came here to say the same: with him not working, what else should she have done? Not take the job?

    • He has been leaking unflattering stories about her since she left him. There have been rumours for years that he is controlling and abusive and he’s certainly proving some of the rumours possible with these “stories”. I don’t believe anything coming from his camp that is unflattering to her. Not that she is an angel, I don’t even like her that much, but it’s clear he’s punishing her.

  2. Lmao24 says:

    Nobody ever married a child bride for their maturity and longevity.

  3. Sara says:

    Good lord. How much work has she had to her face.? Yikes!

  4. Frida_K says:

    How is it that their little girl has such dark roots? Did they dye that child’s hair? Look at her eyebrows and her eyelashes.

    Do people actually dye their children’s hair blonde? If so, why?


    • FHMom says:

      You made me look. I’m going to guess that it’s a natural effect based on just a guess. I’ve seen some girls with such perfect, natural high lights in their hair that no professional hair stylist could duplicate. It’s what nature gives to children and adults try and copy.

      • Frida_K says:

        Huh, no kidding. Wow.

        I don’t have a lot of experience with little blonde children and I don’t really pay attention to them either, so when I noticed this one it really jumped out at me and I wondered.

    • Margles says:

      It’s pretty common for blondes to have dark eyebrows and lashes. And their hair bleaches and changes depending on things like sun exposure. Also, a lot of kids who are blonde when they are little will have darker hair as the age.

    • Mia4s says:

      Just for the record…they have three sons, no daughters. They choose not to cut their hair. They’ve never given any indication the boys identify as anything else. I’ll leave it at that.

      So we’re going the “it’s all love” but totally unsanctioned nothing_to_do_with_me “sources” are going to try to tear into you, route? Sure Green….sure. 🙄

    • Jessie says:

      I had white blonde hair and dark almost black eyelashes and eyebrows as a child. It’s not uncommon, especially with German or Scandinavian descent

    • Halle says:

      They have definitely dyed his hair. He has pretty dark hair naturally, just googled to check and there are quite a few images where you can see the hair is clearly bleached.

    • Kate says:

      I was very blonde with dark eyebrows and eyelashes as a kid. I think it happens a lot but usually an indicator the kid’s hair will darken when they get older.

  5. AmyB says:

    He got together with her when she was VERY young, and he was much older. They were on and off for years so who knows what all those reasons were – obviously they ALL were not about him being sick. There are two sides to every story LMAO so I will take this with a grain of salt 🙂

  6. Digital Unicorn says:

    He’s clearly setting things up to paint her as an selfish woman who isn’t able to care for her children so he can get custody and money – didn’t he try this with his ex and mother of his first child?

    Also wasn’t his ‘undiagnosed’ brain condition called vertigo?? He’s spoken out that in the past about how he isn’t able to work because of it.

    • AGuest says:

      Yes, he supposedly sued Vanessa Marcil (Brenda of General Hospital fame) for custody of their son not soon after marrying Fox. They wanted custody and for her to pay them child support. They lost that case.

      Then apparently he sued Marcil for repayment of money he’d loaned her years ago. A judge dismissed that one.

      She also said something about how Green hadn’t seen their son for years.

      He sounds lovely.

      Somewhat OT – But I always thought Marcil would be someone who would have a bigger career outside of soaps. Not a bad actress with screen presence and chemistry with co-stars.

      • Hello says:

        Yes!! I have always loved watching Vanessa Marcil. Loved Brenda. Loved her in The Rock w/nic cage. And any other show I’ve watched have found her so fun – so much spunk and authenticity. Awesome actress!! Comes across as a nice person to – from what I’ve read/seen.

  7. Also Ali says:

    I’ll sleep better tonight knowing BAG is the real victim here. 🙄

  8. Joanna says:

    Oh please, this is his people doing a smear job on her! So obvious!

  9. LunaSF says:

    I’m sure he wanted that big paycheck she was earning while away though. And healthcare in America ain’t cheap so maybe she was paying his medical bills too with that job. Cute kids!

  10. Hope says:

    If she was under contract to shoot a movie she had no choice to go unless she wanted to get sued and possible not work again.

  11. Starkille says:

    Mr. Austin Green is playing fast and loose with the facts. What he seems to be conveniently forgetting is that he got with her when she was still a teenager and basically groomed her. Now he wants to play the victim and is putting out hit pieces on her? He hadn’t worked for years before this alleged “illness” (which at the time was reported as vertigo, but now it’s a paralysing stroke syndrome???) while she went out and supported his four children including one which was not hers and which he failed to pay child support due to not having a job for many years.

  12. SilentStar says:

    I can see how it would be horrible to have to care for a person that you already feel unhappy with. I would have avoided caring for my ex husband if he came down with serious health issues too. I’m not judging her on this.

  13. Summer says:

    They got together when Megan was barely an adult. Her brain wasn’t even fully formed at that point. Megan most likely is still finding herself and from what I can see throughout the years, is the bread winner.

    • Chile says:

      Totally agree. But to be fair, she said she totally pursued him and he was reluctant. In this case, if anyone were to ask me, I’d say, “Have a great time / fling / passionate romance but whatever you do, don’t have kids or get formally married and mingle your financials.” Too young. Way too young.

  14. Mcali02 says:

    Well let’s not forget the blind items and rumors of him (throughout their marriage) being extremely controlling.

  15. Eleonor says:

    There’s something I don’t like in this story.
    He groomed her that’s a fact.
    She has tried to dump him multiple times over the years.
    And then I read this “We’re told that after the trauma of both the illness and the breakup, Green worked to rebuild their marriage” probably I am wrong but I can totally see him manipulating her again to keep the marriage on.

    • S2 says:

      You’re not wrong. BAG’s debilitating illness seems to pop up every time he needs to manipulate Megan into something. He’s controlling af and hopefully this time she actually gets away from him for good, even if it’s likely to cost her a pretty penny.

  16. lucy2 says:

    I bet she did like it better away from him, with so many reports of him being very controlling.

    His medical issues seem to surface every time she files for divorce and is asking for spousal support.

    • Eleonor says:

      I am not alone in seeing this, what if he really has a condition going on and it’s using it to manipulate her? Some sort of emotional blackmail.

  17. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    I think the only reason they got back together in 2015 (besides the fact she was pregnant) was that he was asking for spousal support in their divorce (because he couldn’t work) and she didn’t want to pay. I think they reconciled and then she got pregnant soon after. Kind of reminds me of when Kelly Rutherford married her first husband then left him less than a year later after he had a stroke. The same month they appeared on a wedding magazine cover together.

  18. Yup, Me says:

    BAG strikes me as a steaming pile of entitled %÷;%.

    Dump him, Megan, make it stick. Get your freedom, your life and your money and get out. Fuck that dude.

    We do not owe ANYONE our lives, our freedom or our autonomy.


  19. LidiaJara says:

    Love everyone in here defending Megan! 100% yes, if you are 30-ish and picking an 18-year-old (at least that’s when they went public?) to be your kid’s stepmom… you made that bed.

    And yah I think I also heard his “stroke like symptoms” were vertigo? Is that correct? So she can’t leave you because you have vertigo?

    On a serious note, my stepmom has a friend who was married to a horrible cruel man. Wanted to leave, worried about the kids. He ended up with a serious brain injury. He is no longer cruel, but he operates similarly to a 5-year-old. She stayed, even though they had stopped loving each other long before that. Life is hard sometimes.

  20. Moxylady007 says:

    He’s an abusive POS. Always has been.

  21. frenchtoast says:

    If she was the bread winner I totally understand she would want to work to earn money.

  22. Jessie says:

    I can’t think of a better time to leave an abusives man than when he’s bedridden and unable to lift his head tbh

  23. Natasha says:

    I wonder how much alimony he’s going to get

  24. WorkingForWeekend says:

    Imma just gonna leave this here. If a man treats a woman horribly or disrespectfully….then falls ill……she doesn’t owe him 💩. I may or may not have experience in this, and this story may or may not have triggered me. If you weren’t better, don’t expect me to be better.

    • BL says:

      I agree. Who cares. She owes him nothing.

    • Meeeee says:

      Same goes for bad parents. If you weren’t good to your kids, don’t expect them to be there when you’re older. Just sayin’

  25. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Well he stayed got back together with her after that so he’s the one looking like Boo Boo the Fool in that story.

  26. S2 says:

    Hey BAG, Deadbeat Dad and serial cheater losing his meal ticket says what?

  27. SJR says:

    OK, I have read this item and all the comments, and I have decided I just don’t care about MF or BAG. Nope. 🙂

  28. Abby says:

    It’s Page Six, so take it with a grain of salt. Also, didn’t they officially* get together when she was 18 and he was 30? He is gross and she is well rid of him. I hope they actually divorce this time, because last time they got back together because she was pregnant :/

    *They met on Hope & Faith in 2004. She was born in May 1986 and the episode he appears in aired in November 2004. Not sure how long between filming and the air date, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they met before she was 18.

  29. Appalachian says:

    Now he (BAG) has been seen with Courtney Stodden….I’m curious what stories will be coming our way. Wonder how long they’ll get papped together?
