‘A perfect example of someone with selfish motives’: Brian Austin Green steps in to address claim Megan Fox ‘forced’ sons to wear ‘girl clothes’

Ever since Megan Fox openly called out ex-husband Brian Austin Green for trying to insinuate that he is “dad of the year” and she is just an absent mother in their children’s lives, the latter has kept his thoughts to himself and only came forward to praise her earlier this year while he dissed another ex. The Beverly Hills star has once again decided to defend his ex-wife by finally addressing the story that Fox “forced” their three sons Noah, 10, Bodhi, 9, and Journey, 6 to “wear girl clothes.”

The said claim has been made by former Congressional candidate, Robby Starbuck, who posted a picture of Megan and her kids, saying that he saw two of her sons have “full on breakdown” and they shared that they were being “forced by their mom to wear girls clothes.” 

“It’s pure child abuse. Pray for them.”

Though Fox hasn’t responded to the blatant attack, Green has called out Starbuck in a chat with TMZ for harboring ill intentions and attempting to sabotage Fox’s relationship with her children. 

“It’s a totally bogus story. There are only a few people in their world that can actually verify wether [sic] or not a story like this is true and I can tell you with absolute certainty it is not. This person trying to claim this is true is a perfect example of someone with selfish motives that does not care about negatively affecting a parent child relationship. 

As a society I hope we continue to push to be better. This Robby Starbuck person is full of s**t, and I have no idea who he is.”

Green’s statement seconds how the ex-couple has chosen to refrain from dictating what their children chose to wear or how they decide to express themselves. In a chat with Glamour back in 2022, Fox shared how she has incorporated certain things in her children’s lives to ensure “nobody feels like they are weird or strange or different.”

“Noah started wearing dresses when he was about two, and I bought a bunch of books that sort of addressed these things and addressed a full spectrum of what this is. Some of the books are written by transgender children. Some of the books are just about how you can be a boy and wear a dress; you can express yourself through your clothing however you want. And that doesn’t even have to have anything to do with your sexuality.”

In response to Green’s comment, Starbuck has called out TMZ for not contacting him about his statement about Fox as he claims there are others who can support his claim. 

It remains to be seen whether Green will be responding to Starbuck doubling down on his claim, even as the latter continues to attract doubt and backlash for leveling the allegation at Fox.
