Brian Austin Green might have moved on from his marriage to Megan Fox, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready to start reading about her new romance.
The former Transformers star’s romance with rapper Machine Gun Kelly came to light just days after she and Brian announced the end of their nearly 10-year marriage.
Since then, Megan and Kelly haven’t been shy in piling on the PDA, while the screen star admitted she considers herself and the musician “two halves of the same soul”.
Brian has also thrown himself back into the dating scene, enjoying outings with stars including Courtney Stodden, but when it comes to the coverage of his and Megan’s new romances, he’d rather steer clear of the headlines.
“You can (escape it) if you ignore it and you avoid it, which is what I try and do,” the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star said during an appearance on the Hollywood Raw podcast on Monday (August 3, 2020).
“I mean, I try and not read anything or look at anything and not involve myself in it. Just keep my head down and do what I do and, you know, focus on the kids. I know she’s gonna do the same thing.”
The 47-year-old actor has been criticized by some for dating multiple women, including influencer Tina Louise, following the end of his marriage. But Brian said that he’s just doing what lots of people do after the end of a long relationship – it’s just that his life is in the public eye.
“My life is just much more under a microscope than somebody else’s,” he explained. “Isn’t that dating? Aren’t you supposed to talk to multiple people? It doesn’t mean I’m a s**tty person. That’s what you’re supposed to do.
“You have to be willing to get out there and put yourself out there. But I get judged for it, I think, unfairly. I’m open to meeting somebody. I’m focused on myself and healing with all of this and my kids.”
