Megan Fox has announced that she is divorcing husband Brian Austin Green after five years of marriage, and it is already being speculated whether a brief “affair” with Shia Labeouf was the cause of it all.
According to USWeekly, the couple separated earlier this year because Green struggled to come to terms with the fact that his wife was constantly chasing after movie roles more than what her “real duties” were — supposedly to focus more on motherhood and being a wife. Fox, who currently has three movies in the works, has definitely been putting work into her acting career, which fell off after she became pregnant with her two-year-old son, Noah.
However, fans on Twitter and Facebook have since brought up several interviews from Shia Labeouf — these date back to 2011 and 2012 — when the actor very openly admitted to having had an “affair” with Megan. The duo, who were on-screen lovers in Transformers, might have had more than what an ordinary fan would have thought.
Shia explained in an interview from 2011, “Look, you’re on the set for six months, with someone who’s rooting to be attracted to you, and you’re rooting to be attracted to them. I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry on-screen.”
Other social media users were digging even deeper. One fanatic mentioned the time Megan Fox openly stressed that Labeouf was — without a doubt — her best on-screen lover she’s ever had, adding that nobody came close to kissing her as good as Labeouf did during their intimate scenes.
It is believed that both Fox and Shia have remained friends since they first collaborated on the juggernaut success that was Transformers, followed by the ever-so-successful sequel. Her divorce from Brian Austin Green, someone she had been with for 11 years, does not really come as a shock when looking at how much the 29-year-old has gushed over Shia in the past.
And while sources want us to believe that the Hollywood couple are calling it quits over some measly argument regarding one’s career, perhaps Mr. Labeouf will be more understanding to the hard work ethic that Megan Fox carries. She’s clearly determined to remain a household name, and by the looks of her forthcoming schedule, the actress has a number of movies she is set to star in.
