It’s official: Megan Fox files for divorce from Brian Austin Green
The Megan Fox/Brian Austin Green breakup took a turn for the official on Friday -- the actress has filed for divorce.
The “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” actress filed her petition in Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences, according to documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times.
The 29-year-old, represented by purported “disso queen” Laura Wasser -- think “dissolution of marriage” -- said she and the “Beverly Hills, 90210" actor separated on June 15, 2015, after five years as husband and wife. Fox is seeking joint legal and physical custody of their two sons: Noah Shannon, 2, and Bodhi Ransom, 18 months.
Green, 42, has another son from a previous relationship.
Though most of the couple’s separate and community property is yet to be determined, Fox listed miscellaneous jewelry and other personal effects, as well as earnings and accumulations from the date of separation, as her separate property.
It’s unclear whether Green has filed a response to the petition.
The two had no prenuptial agreement, TMZ said, so earnings during their five-year marriage will likely be dubbed community property and allocated evenly. The website also said the split was amicable and that Fox and Green are still living in the same home.
They met when the actress was 18, while shooting her sitcom “Hope and Faith.” Green proposed twice before they wed in Hawaii on June 24, 2010. Fox called off their first engagement in February 2009.
News of their separation went public earlier this week, with several reports claiming that they had been separated for six months already -- contrary to the legal date of separation listed on Fox’s petition.
