Actor Brian Green Seeks Spousal Support From Megan Fox in Divorce

Megan Fox and Brian Green are set to split after a five-year marriage. Now Green, the ex-husband-to-be, is seeking spousal support.

Fox reportedly filed for divorce in August, citing "irreconcilable differences." There was no response from Green until this week. They reportedly continue to live under one roof while caring for their two kids and the split seems as amicable as these things can be. Green is also seeking joint custody.

It's been a cruel, cruel summer, at least for celebrity couples. Not even our favorite fictional characters were spared the celebrity divorce.

Here are a few of the cruelest breakups this summer and the mashed-up names we'll miss the most:

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's divorce is finalized!

Wait ... didn't they just announce the divorce a few days ago? Unlike the Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorce, which lasted longer than their 72-day marriage, Shelton and Lambert had a shotgun divorce, finalized within only a few weeks.

Country star Trace Adkins and his wife have come to a settlement agreement in their divorce case.

While celebrity divorces are a dime a dozen, this divorce is somewhat unique. Instead of a long drawn out court battle, the couple decided to work things out in private mediation.

After 20 years of marriage, Chris Rock and his wife Malaak Compton Rock are divorcing.

Before the couple married in 1996, they signed a prenuptial agreement. Now that they're divorcing, that prenuptial agreement may not be worth the paper it's printed on.

Love is all mirrors and illusions in Hollywood. Even Marge and Homer Simpson can't make their marriage work.

The couple, divorced and remarried once before, are heading to splitsville next season. The show's executive producer Al Jean told Variety that Marge and Homer would legally separate in the 27th season's premier episode.

The horror!

Pamela Anderson has reached a divorce settlement with Rick Salomon. Hopefully, for the last time.

The couple has been married twice, once in 2008, and again in 2014. Their first marriage was annulled for fraud after only two months together. Salomon and Anderson must be gluttons for punishment because they tried again in January, 2014. Anderson filed for divorce only four months later, but dropped the divorce after they reconciled. The reconciliation didn't last as she filed for divorce in California in February of this year, and he filled for annulment in Nevada.

'7th Heaven's' Stephen Collins to Give Deposition in Divorce Case

Former "7th Heaven" star Stephen Collins must sit for a deposition, the judge in his ongoing divorce proceedings ruled Wednesday.

The ruling came after a request by Collins' estranged wife Faye Grant, reports The Associated Press. Grant wants Collins to answer questions about the financial fallout he claims occurred after an audio recording was released last year in which he admitted to inappropriate sexual conduct with three underage girls.

Collins claims the release of the taped confession, the truth of which he later acknowledged, ruined his career.

"Glee" star Jane Lynch has finalized her divorce, and she's agreed to give $1.2 million to her ex-wife to call it quits.

Dr. Lara Embry, Lynch's ex-wife, finalized the divorce settlement with her famous ex-spouse on Monday, but she won't be walking away empty-handed. TMZ reports that among other things, Embry will be receiving half of several bank accounts, retirement funds, royalties from Lynch's television appearances, and half of their tax refund.

What can future divorcees learn from Jane Lynch's split?

Paula Patton Files for Divorce From Robin Thicke

After eight months of separation, Paula Patton has filed papers in a Los Angeles court to divorce husband Robin Thicke.

Patton, an actress, and "Blurred Lines" singer Thicke have been married since 2005 and have a 4-year-old son together, reports CNN. Following the announcement earlier this year that the two had separated, Thicke has made a sometimes-uncomfortably public push to get back together with Patton, including releasing an album titled "Paula" dedicated to his wife.

Now that Thicke and Patton's marriage appears to be over, what legal issues may arise in what's sure to be a much-publicized divorce?
