For those of you caught up in the Globes hype of last weekend, you may have missed this bit o' news: Brian Austin Green is suing his baby mama Vanessa Marcil.
The former 90210 star filed the suit Friday, alleging he's been loaning her money since January 2000, and now he's back to claim what he says is rightfully his.
So are we the only ones who find it odd Brian waited this long to request the bucks back? And what do sources close to the former couple have to say about the money situation?
Let's just say it's a major chunk o' change:
"It's for two hundred thousand dollars," a source thisclose to the former couple revealed to us.
Now that's a whole lotta cash to claim, so we have to ask—why now, Brian? Could there be another reason behind the request for cash?
Several attempts to reach various reps for the two stars were unsuccessful. And Brian Austin Green's attorney continues to not respond.
"I wonder if he has that much of a chance," spilled our source when we asked whether the court's going to make Vanessa cough up the cash.
Our Brian/Vanessa source continued, when we pressed further: "I'm not really sure what this is about."
Our conundrum exactly.
'Cause it seems the dude's had a major change of 'tude to wait 11 years to sue the mother of his child (now 9 years old) and sources are quick to jump to Vanessa's defense:
"A lot of us are like thinking, yo, dude way to be good to the mother of your child."
So we have to wonder whether Mr. Green has a whole 'nother plan of action, considering he and current wife Megan Fox purchased a $3 million home together just five months before it was revealed she wouldn't be continuing in the Transformers franchise.
And for those of you who think Ms. Marcel should just go ahead and give Brian what's rightfully his, our source has something else to add:
"I don't think he has anything in writing."
Well, oral contracts can still be binding, remember. So, what say you Awful readers? Is Mr. Green forgetting family's more important that cash, or should Vanessa give in and cough up the loot?
