Despite claims that Megan Fox and her longtime fiancé, Brian Austin Green, split last week, close friends of the couple insist that it’s not true.
“They didn’t break up,” an insider reports exclusively to In Touch. “They hit a rough patch. But in every long-term relationship, people go through ups and downs.”
Indeed, though they were rumored to have ended their two-year engagement in February, Megan, 22, and Brian, 35, seem to be sticking to their regular routine: This week, the Transformers star took Brian’s 6-year-old son, Kassius, to school as she normally does, and the pair were also seen holding hands in public.
“These two are very much in love and plan to be together for a long time,” says a friend. Another friend adds that recently, Megan and Brian, who have been together since 2004, even agreed to seek help for their relationship problems.
“In early March, they decided to enter counseling in hopes of staying together,” says the pal. “It was a mutual decision. Lots of couples go to therapy together, and they are committed to try and make it work.” “He’s a really great person,” says Megan of Brian. “When I’m not working, I’m at home [with him] all the time.”
Brian Austin Green approved.
