Hours later, Brian made a post on the same platform as he took a screenshot of his ex-wife's post while addressing her words head-on. The Beverly Hills 90210 alum started by stating how "frustrating" it felt to "read continued lies from a 50+-year-old woman on social media like she is still in high school." Brian described her as someone who will never "walk the walk."

He Stated His And Megan Fox's Roles

The star actor continued by stating that he and his ex-wife Megna Fox played a crucial role in Kassius's childhood as they worked together to give him a well-rounded childhood. Green added that Marcil was "rarely there." He noted that he felt Marcil was posting more of her son now that he is an adult because she was absent when he was younger.

The General Hospital actress spoke on her relationship with Brian following their split. According to Us Weekly, she shared that she always told the actor how she felt about him. Marcil stated that she felt sorry for him. The 54-year-old actress stated, "He’s a very angry/sad human being who still has too much shame to take full responsibility for his actions as a father. I consciously knew that I could work through childhood traumas through him and I have..."

Marcil Was Quite Antagonistic To Brian And Fox

Following her and Brian's custody battle, the actress took to her Instagram page in 2018 opening up on their relationship post-splot. Marcil penned that she initially stayed mum about it to protect her son when he was young. Going on, Marcil claimed that Briana and Fox were absent in her son's life. At the time, she relayed that they hadn't seen him for five years.

After the BH90210 actor became romantically involved with Fox, Marcil did not hide her feelings as she never had nice things to say about them, However after Fox and Brian got separated in 2020, she applauded the Transformers actress stating that she was "finally living her life for herself"

Life Before Their Split

Brian and Fox first crossed paths in 2004 on the set of ABC's Hope & Faith.

This led to a series of romantic moments between the two before they got engaged in 2006.

Inside Fox And Brian's Marriage

Through their journey to tying the knot, Brian and Fox had some back and forths that saw them breaking up briefly in 2009. However, by the middle of the following year in June, they were right back on track. In the same month, the couple said their vows in a private ceremony in Hawaii.
