Despite appearing in Machine Gun Kelly's "Bloody Valentine" music video amid dating rumours, Megan Fox still claims her estranged husband's name as her own.
Megan Fox and her estranged husband, Brian Austin Green, may be on the outs, but she still considers herself part of his family, apparently. The actress caused quite the commotion last weekend when she was spotted hanging out with Machine Gun Kelly, despite still being married to Brian. However, it had been speculated for a while that the couple were heading for divorce, and shortly after Megan's outing with MGK, Brian appeared to confirm their split on a few different occasions. Now, despite the fact that she has ditched her wedding ring and her husband has publicly addressed their breakup, Megan is still claiming "Green" as her "family name."

On Wednesday (May 20th), the same day she appeared in MGK's "Bloody Valentine" music video and heated up their dating rumours, Megan spoke to interior decorator and Red Line Steel CEO, Colin Wayne, over IG live about her recent partnership with the company. During their chat, Colin complimented Megan on her performance in the MGK video, which she humbly accepted. Megan hasn't directly addressed her split from Brian nor the dating rumours about MGK yet, but it was evident during the live stream that she had ditched her wedding ring. However, this detail is hardly scandalous, considering she and Brian have both been spotted sans ring in recent weeks.
Furthermore, she showed off her custom Red Line family tree item to Colin, indicating that it was monogrammed with a crest reading "Green," AKA her "family name." Although it's likely that she had this decoration made prior to their official separation, Megan is clearly not concerned with distancing herself from her estranged husband—or at the very least, his name.
As for Brian, he openly discussed their split on his podcast earlier this week. “It sucks when life changes and something that you’re used to, that you’ve been doing for 15 years, you try and not get rid of but you change,” he confessed. “There’s the unknown aspect … there’s that pit in my stomach … I really don’t want Megan and I to be at odds … she’s been my best friend for 15 years and I don’t want to lose that...I will always love her, and I know she will always love me and I know as far as a family what we have built is really cool and really special.” He also claimed that she and MGK are "just friends at this point."
