Brian Austin Green revealed back in May that he and Megan Fox had really called it quits again, and Megan proved she’s over over her marriage to Brian by quickly getting with Machine Gun Kelly. Megan seems to be having a good time with Mr. Gun Kelly, which absolutely serves her caterpillar-like transformation into a woman who feels empowered to do what she wants. In a juicy twist, one person who is loudly cheering, “Yes, girl, live your life!” from the sidelines is Brian’s former fiancée Vanessa Marcil.
Vanessa and Brian got together in 1999, on the set of Beverly Hills, 90210 (where he played David Silver and she played Gina Kincaid). In 2001 they got engaged, and had a son named Kassius Marcil-Green in 2002. They split up a year later, and ever since then their relationship as co-parents has been a bit of a mess. Although Vanessa might look at the word co-parent and suggest a person needs to be in their son’s life in order to parent them. Vanessa has accused Brian of being a bad dad, and claimed that she was involved in a messy custody fight with Brian and Megan that was dragged out for years and years. According to Vanessa, Brian and Megan were trying to get full custody of Kassius, which Vanessa wasn’t into. Eventually a judge threw out their case, and that’s when Brian (allegedly, according to Vanessa) stopped seeing Kassius that much.
But now Vanessa isn’t just playing nice with Megan, but actively celebrating her new life as The Soon-To-Be Former Mrs. Austin Green. The Daily Mail reports that Vanessa recently responded to a fan question in her Instagram Stories. It began with one person asking, “Why do you always talk so poorly of Kass’ father?“. Vanessa went in:
“Our job as adults is not to protect adults but to protect our children of the world. I speak actually very kindly about Kass’ father. I just speak the truth now at my son‘s request in order to help my son heal and not shoulder these secrets anymore. If his father‘s actions reflect poorly on him that is his doing. Not mine. I speak with empathy regarding Kassius’ dad considering the complete devastation that my son went through. My son and my family will tell you the same. I’ve had a rule all through our 13 year court case in my family that no one is ever to say a bad word about Kass’ dad.
I just finally now that Kass is grown tell the truth regarding a court case and him cutting his son out of his life for 5 years. If you look back at our history his father publicly tried to slander me, lie about me, shame me as a working mother and take full custody of my son. I never commented. He admits this now. He’s lucky that I don’t speak poorly of him after what he put our innocent boy through.
He’s very big on doing things that publicly make him look like a nice guy. However, it is who you are when no one is looking that shows your true character.”
Vanessa responded to another fan who suggested she’s still in love with Brian, saying that she isn’t and thinks he’s too “angry/sad” to take any responsibility for his actions. That’s when Vanessa praised Megan:
“I actually have respect for how @meganfox is finally living her life for herself and leaving her children out of her public life at this young age. I used to hide Kass from the public when he was young and never once spoke about our court case to Kass or publicly until Kass was grown and insisted I stop lying to protect. Megan finally living her life for herself is in itself a gift to her children.”
Brian decided to respond, or at least that’s what Us Weekly believes he did. Not very long after Vanessa went off on Brian, he hopped on Instagram, and posted the following passive-aggressive call-out to no one in particular.
Again, to no one in particular! Brian could be talking to anyone! Courtney Stodden, perhaps. But considering that it coincided with Vanessa’s Instagram dragging, it’s probably safe to assume it’s about her. But if Brian really is bigger than that, they why would be post a cryptic, vague comment that could easily be interpreted as shady? It feels a little impulsive and dramatic. And anyone familiar with vintage 90s Head & Shoulders ads know that’s channeling her inner impulsive and dramatic diva is Vanessa’s thing!
