On Wednesday (June 16), Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green confirmed they were giving engagement another try, after calling off their first betrothal in February 2009.
Sources told People magazine at the time that, despite the split, the two remained friendly. “The decision was mutual,” the source said about the couple, who met in 2004 before getting engaged for the first time in November 2006. “They’re still friends.”
In 2008, Green spoke about the strain their busy careers put on their relationship, even before the split. “We met on ’Hope & Faith,’ ” he told TV Guide. “We’ve lived together for three years. We have tattoos of each other’s names. We have more time away from each other now than we’d like. We have a potbellied pig, dogs, two cats, two birds, a squirrel. Megan wants a leopard. That’ll never happen! That’s a whole different world. … I would love more kids. Right now, our biggest problem is rescuing pets from pet stores.”
Soon after the pair announced their split, they were spotted around town together. A source told E! News that, shortly after the breakup, “They just seemed like a normal couple. They weren’t holding hands or anything. … She was just sort of following him around.”
The pair officially decided to start dating again later in 2009, with Fox revealing what she liked about Green : “He’s a man. He has an ego. He went through [fame] already, and he doesn’t want it back — it was horrible. So he has sympathy. He’s the one person that I know that if I’m struggling and everything’s getting crazy, I can call.”
