Last month, Green emotionally revealed that he and Fox had separated after 15 years and 10 years of marriage. They have three sons: Noah Shannon (7), Bodhi Ransom (6) and Journey River (3). Green defended his estranged wife on his podcast, saying he didn't want her or Machine Gun Kelly, real name Colson Baker, to be "slandered."
"None of us did anything to ourselves. She was always honest with me, I was always honest with her. We had an amazing relationship and I will always love her and I know that she will always love me. And for a family, I know that what we built is really cool and really special, ”said Green in tears. He admitted that adapting to their new normal is "a big change for both of us".
"[Megan] met this guy, Colson, on the set of this film she's working on ... I never met him, but Megan and I talked about him," added Green. "From what she said, he's really just a nice, real guy. I trust her judgment. She always had really good judgment. I don't want people to think that he or she is a bad guy or that I am was a victim of it in some way. Because I wasn't. It's not new to us, it's something new that people can experience and hear in the press. I don't want anyone to be slandered in this situation. "
Days after the podcast, 30-year-old Machine Gun Kelly released a steaming music video with the 34-year-old actress.
Stodden and Hutchinson were legally married for almost 10 years. The celebrity Big Brother star posted an emotional Instagram post in March about how he is cared for as his bride.
"I was afraid to speak during the almost 10-year marriage about feeling groomed or insulted because I was a child and he was 50 when we got married, but I am now a woman and it is time for me to put on my big girls pants and talk about this matter. I was completely caught by adults, manipulated and sometimes felt abandoned // growing up in such an environment - it became a lonely and dark place, ”she wrote. "Doug ... I will always love you; Still, I will always be angry. You left me - a nanny who feels disparaged and confused. I will overcome these things. I wish you all the best. But please never do that to another minor. "
Yahoo Entertainment turned to representatives of Green and Stodden about romantic rumors, but didn't get answers straight away.
