Brian Austin Green’s Biggest Fear After His Split from Megan Fox

Green met Fox on the set of her series Hope & Faith. Fox, who was 17 at the time, says she immediately liked Green, who was 30 years old when they met. Green first laid eyes on Fox during a table read for an upcoming episode. He was advised not to date her because she was so young, said Green during an interview with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest. However, when Fox turned 18, they began dating.

Fox wasn’t familiar with Green’s work in the original Beverly Hills 90210, but she was still smitten when she first saw him. “I didn’t know who he was from 90210, but I liked him right away,” Fox tells The New York Times in a 2009 interview. “Everyone was around the monitor watching a scene, and Brian accidentally touched my leg. I remember literal electricity shooting through me and out of me from every direction. It was like magic.”

Fox’s relationship with Machine Gun Kelly began the same way her relationship began with Green. Machine Gun Kelly and Fox met on the set of a movie they were filming titled Midnight in the Switchgrass. Green told his podcast listeners Fox let him know about her budding friendship with MGK.   

“Megan has continued working and she met this guy Colson on set on this film she’s working on,” says Green. “I’ve never met him. He goes by Machine Gun Kelly. I’ve never met him, but Megan and I have talked about him and they’re friends at this point. And from what she’s expressed, he’s just a really nice, genuine guy. And I trust her judgment. She’s always had really good judgment.”

During his podcast, Green shared his thoughts about the end of his marriage. He says he is still trying to adjust to what life will look like without Fox in his life. He also says he’s afraid he will lose the close friendship he formed with his soon-to-be ex-wife.

It sucks when life changes and something that you’re used to, that you’ve been doing for 15 years, you try and not get rid of, but you change, because there’s the unknown aspect to it. That’s really scary. And then there’s that pit in my stomach.

I really don’t want Megan and I to be at odds. Because at the end of it all, we’ve been married and we’ve done all that, but she’s been my best friend for 15 years. And I don’t want to lose that. I don’t think I have to, I don’t think I will, but there’s the fear of that.
