And so the “summer of splits” continues as Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green split after 11 years of being together and 5 years of marriage.
US Weekly reports that the two stars decided to take some time apart about “six months.” The magazine also claims that the couple’s relationship “had been rocky” for some time.
Sources have come forward saying that the two are friendly and the split was amicable, as both parties just wanted to “do their own things.”
Megan and Brian met on the set of the ABC sitcom Hope & Faith, and got married in 2010. The former couple had 2 sons together, Noah Green, 2, and Bodhi Green, 18 months.
The last time the couple was photographed together was on June 9 in Beverly Hills. Since then Megan, 29, has stepped out alone without her wedding ring, while Brian, 42, was photographed still wearing his ring recently at an L.A. gym.
Things have definitely changed, as in 2012 Megan revealed to Cosmopolitan that she truly felt Brian was her “soul mate.” Adding that, “[she didn’t want to] sound corny or cliché, but [she did] believe [they were] destined to live this part of [their] lives together.” In 2014, the couple purchased a $3.35 million mansion in L.A.’s Los Feliz.
Apparently some of the tension in their marriage was caused by Megan’s desire to keep busy in her career. US Weekly reports Brian “would prefer [Megan] focus on the family more than being obsessed with getting roles.”
First Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, then Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale and now Megan and Brian, it has definitely not been the most favorable summer for celebrity marriages.
Speculations have arisen following the Teen Choice Awards, after singer Rita Ora was seen getting close to rapper Wiz Khalifa. The two were apparently talking throughout the night of the award show.
Even further fueling the rumors, the duo were seen going for a late night diner at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood the day after. A source tells E! News that they “sat at a table just the two of them…they looked very engaged and like they were an item.”
The source also goes on to tell the media outlet that Rita and Wiz headed to W Hotel in Westwood after their dinner and enjoyed drinks together.
The following day Wiz tweeted, “If your not sleeping off your hangover on a flight to France I don’t know what the fuck is wrong with you,” seemingly confirming the source’s claims that he was drinking with Rita the night before.
Wiz Khalifa, Twitter post:
If your not sleeping off your hangover on a flight to France I don't know what the fuck is wrong with you.

If the rumors are true, it will be interesting to see how Wiz’s outspoken ex-wife Amber Rose reacts to the new couple.
