Brian Austin Green is trying to stay positive following his split from his estranged wife, Megan Fox. Though, after 10 years of marriage, the actor is having a hard time coping with the demise of their relationship, a source close to Brian tells HollywoodLife, exclusively. “Megan was always Brian’s dream girl. He’s always been open about that. He had a crush on her even before meeting her and would constantly tell friends he had to meet her — so this split has been very hard on him,” the insider explains.
“Getting over her and the marriage has been very, very difficult and he’s struggling with it all. This breakup has rocked him big time and he’s doing his best,” the source admits, explaining, “He’s never been in love with anyone like he has Megan, and he truly feels like she was the love of his life.”
Those close to Brian believe there’s no salvaging a romantic relationship with Megan. “Friends think he’s still holding out a little hope she’ll come back again, because she has numerous times before. But, everyone close to them thinks this is done for good,” the source says.
While Brian can’t yet picture himself settling down with someone else, throwing himself into another romance isn’t at the top of his priority list. “He’s having trouble seeing himself long term with anyone else like he did with her. He’s just trying to focus on his kids and work,” the insider reveals, noting, “Seeing her with another man has been tough. He cannot wait until this pandemic ends and he can get back to filming. It’s what makes him happiest.”
Megan has since moved on with rocker Machine Gun Kelly, 30, after she appeared as his love interest in the new music video for his song “Bloody Valentine.” The new couple was spotted kissing and holding hands outside a Los Angeles bar on June 15 — two days after Brian shockingly stepped out with reality star, Courtney Stodden on June 13.
Following his split from Megan, Brian has been spotted out on numerous occasions with Courtney — who confirmed on March 3 that her divorce with actor Doug Hutchison was finalized. More recently, Brian was photographed grabbing lunch with Australian model, Tina Louise in Los Angeles on June 30.
