It was reported earlier this week that the couple had called time on their romance after 11 years together.

Megan Fox secretly wed long-time love Brian Austin Green in a barefoot beach ceremony in 2010 in Hawaii with only his eight-year-old son Kassius present.

But now TMZ.com has revealed that Megan has made the break-up official by filing the official papers to set the divorce in motion.

The outlet reports that Megan is asking for joint physical and legal custody of the pair’s two sons Noah, two, and 18-month-old Bodhi.

A source added to the website that because Megan and Brian didn’t have a pre-nuptial agreement when they wed, the earnings they have accrued during their five-year marriage will be split straight down the middle as they are classed as “community property”.

However, Megan is expected to pay some kind of spousal support to Brian, due to the difference in their incomes and also due to his reported medical issues.

 While many divorces can be bitter and fraught, Megan and Brian’s relationship is said to continue to be “very amicable”, and the pair are believed to still be living in the same house with their sons.

According to the papers TMZ claim to have seen, the pair listed their separation date as June 15, 2015.

Megan and Brian’s romance began when she was 18 and he was 30 years old. They got engaged in 2006 but called things off in 2009, before planning to wed again in 2010 and marrying the same year.

They met on ABC sitcom Hope & Faith, which Megan starred in from 2004 until 2006 and Brian guest-starred on, and the actress described their meeting as "magic".
