This year is shaping up to be the season of celebrity breakups. Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox now join the list of failed Hollywood marriages.
Green has responded to Megan Fox’s divorce papers, which were filed last August with the Superior Court of Los Angeles County. Fox’s cites ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the divorce.

“Things had been rocky,” a source told Us Weekly, adding that Fox has a tendency to do her own thing and is extremely “independent.” Fox also requested for shared custody and they are still living together to take care of their kids, Noah Shannon and Bodhi Ransom. “They’re on friendly terms for the sake of their kids,” another source told Us Weekly at the time of Fox’s filing.

“They just want to do their own things.” Although the separation is mutual, Green said he wishes to receive alimony from Fox, as well as be granted joint custody of the kids. At the L.A. County Superior Court in September 29th, Green formally filed documents in response to his wife’s divorce papers, seeking spousal support from Fox. Fox and Green were previously involved in a car accident with a drunk driver in December of last year. Fox incurred no injuries while Green developed vertigo as a result of the accident.
“Green has worked very little since last December when he and Megan were in a car wreck,” TMZ said. “Megan was not injured but Brian now has a serious medical condition… vertigo, affecting his balance and ability to work.”
Fox recently signed a role in the hit comedy TV show, New Girl, as well as upcoming films Zeroville and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. As Fox is the more financially capable of the two, Green has a probable chance that his alimony request will be granted by the court.
At the moment, Green is unable to support himself and his son with ex-wife Vanessa Marcil.

Apart from the alimony that Green might receive, reports said that he and Fox do not have any prenuptial agreement. So everything that they’ve earned during their marriage will be divided equally as it is classified as community property.
Fox and Green got engaged twice; once in 2006 after which they broke up, and they got back together, got engaged again and married in 2010. Fox claim that their five-year marriage officially ended last June 15.
Meanwhile, after months of silence, Fox finally posted a photo of herself on her Instagram account with the caption,”I’m still here, I just continue to have an angsty relationship with social media. But what better way to express my apprehension than with a selfie. This time in black n white!”
Fox has not made any comments about Green’s request for alimony or even their divorce. Fox is currently focusing on her film career and upcoming shows.
“She was overwhelmed with the children and her husband’s expectations, which got in the way of work responsibilities,” a source close to Fox told PEOPLE. “They had many disagreements and arguments about her time at home, which led to problems.”
However, prior to Green’s filing for spousal support, he was spotted still wearing his wedding ring while grocery shopping in Los Angeles, despite the divorce filed by Fox.
He was also wearing a shirt that said: Life Hurts printed across the front, sending a message to everyone and might be for Fox too.

Brian Austin Green still has yet to publicly comment on the divorce and the alimony he’s requesting from Fox.
Reportedly, they are still trying to make the best of their current situation, for their children.
