News of Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green splitting up after 11 years together may have come as a surprise to many, but a past episode of Flipping Out already had some speculating that the two were having difficulties with their relationship long before any news of the situation broke.
During the current season of the show, Green was featured in one episode of the reality series renovating a home in Camarillo for Fox and their children to live in. Although everything with Green appeared to be fine, some audience members took note that Fox did not make a single appearance in the episode.
Even further, when Green was asked questions about his wife by hosts Jeff Lewis and Jenni Pulos, the 90210 star kept his comments short and to the point.
Although some excused Fox’s absence as a conflict of schedules, an insider recently revealed to E! News that it was problems in their relationship that caused Fox to decline an appearance on the Bravo show.
“You can probably draw your own conclusions as to why she didn’t make an appearance.”
Since that telling episode, which aired on August 12, news has surfaced that the two stars are now separated. According to Us Weekly, the couple have broken up due to conflicts over Megan Fox’s persistent career aspirations.
“Megan has separated from Brian… They decided it six months ago… Things have been rocky.”
The sourced went on to add that the two have been fighting over Fox’s need to expand her movie career. “They fight about her career. She was obsessed with getting roles,” the source indicated.
Fox’s recent movie credits include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Zeroville, in which she stars alongside James Franco and Will Ferrell. The couple have two sons together: Noah (2) and Bodhi (18 months).
Despite the breakup and reported conflicts between the two, they are both apparently choosing to remain friendly in large part due to their children.
“They’re on friendly terms for the sake of the kids,” an insider told People.
“They just want to do their own things. They will always love each other very much and are devoted to their kids. Anything could happen in the future, but for now they’ve decided it’s best to take some time apart.”
Neither Megan Fox nor Brian Austin Green have made any official comments on their break-up.
