In most high-profile celebrity splits, spousal support usually is more about ego than actual need, but in Brian Austin Green’s split from Megan Fox, it’s a different story.
The former “Beverly Hills 90210” actor reportedly can’t work due to vertigo he’s suffered, following a car accident involving both the estranged couple and an allegedly drunk driver. Green is said to be still suffering from injuries he sustained in the crash eight months ago.
He was behind the wheel in December when Ignacio Demaria, 35, crossed the double-yellow lines and headed into ongoing traffic and collided with the Green-Fox car. Demaria was arrestedon aDUI charge, but the resolution of that case has not yet been determined.
TMZ reported the collision led the airbags to deploy in Green’s car — whipping him in the face.
He is said to have suffered from vertigo ever since, with the condition so severe he is unable to get out of bed most days. Indeed, when Green was seen in public in early August, it was the first sighting in nearly two months. But as Green allegedly has been unable to work since the accident, and made less money than Fox to begin with, he reportedly will seek spousal support.
The actor has not yet filed his response to Fox’s divorce petition, and neither has publicly commented on the split. They are said to still be living together in the same house in Los Angeles.
