Megan Fox has appeared to make a dig at her ex-husband Brian Austin Green on Instagram.

The Jennifer’s Body star responded to a sentimental post Green shared about his new girlfriend, Sharna Burgess.

After posting a photo showing him kissing Burgess, Green wrote: “It’s been a really long time since I’ve been with someone I can truly share life with.”

Fox, who filed for divorce from the Desperate Housewives actor in November 2020, replied: “Grateful for Sharna.” She accompanied the comment with a purple heart emoji.

The pair were married for 10 years.

Fox’s comment, which has since been deleted, caused a stir among her fans, with many interpreting it as sarcasm. Earlier this week, Fox called her new boyfriend, the rapper Machine Gun Kelly, her “soulmate”.

Burgess, ignoring Fox’s comment, replied: “There’s no one else I could ever imagine sharing it with. I love you’ with a red heart emoji.”

Fox – who first found mainstream fame in 2007’s Transformers – has previously spoken out against the pervading misogyny that impacted her career.

“I think there has been a pervasive perception of me as a shallow succubus, if that makes any sense, for at least the first decade of my career,” she recently told The Washington Post.

Because of her physical appearance, Fox said: “I was never really established as having been talented.”
