Brian Austin Green has responded to his estranged wife's request for a divorce.
More than a month after Megan Fox filed papers in Los Angeles, E! News has uncovered what the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum is asking as proceedings to make their split permanent get underway.
In court documents obtained by E! News, Green follows Fox's lead and cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce. In fact, the actor's response mimics Fox's divorce filing in almost every category including the desire for joint custody of their two children.
There is a notable difference, however: Green has requested spousal support, while Fox had left that section of her petition blank. (More often than not, the petitioner checks off the box to "terminate the court's ability to award support" to his or her ex, so that was a surprise too.)
While the couple separated, per the court docs, on June 15 of this year, their split and subsequent divorce filing came as a surprise to many fans when the news broke in August.
"I believe he's my soul mate," Fox gushed in a 2013 interview with Marie Claire U.K. "But that doesn't mean it doesn't take work, because we are very, very different." One year later, she told Cosmo that divorce just didn't seem possible between the two.
"Brian and I have done everything you can do to ruin a relationship and we still love each other," Fox shared. "I don't want to be boastful and say that we would never divorce, but I can't image a scenario we couldn't work through."
Here's hoping that positive attitude will be put into practice in the coming months.
