Megan Fox is "grateful" for Brian Austin Green's new romance with Sharna Burgess. You can read into her now-deleted comment as much or as little as you'd like, but Green said it's all good between the exes.

"For people that need or want clarification: Megan and I get along great," Green updated his fans on Wednesday night. "Neither of us are sending petty digs to each other. We both work really hard to co-parent well for our kids."

This stemmed from Green and his Dancing With the Stars pro girlfriend taking his children to Walt Disney World in Orlando on Tuesday. The 90210 alum shared a photo of himself smooching Burgess on social media, writing, "It’s been a really long time since I’ve been with someone I can truly share life with."

That got a reply from Burgess, who commented, "There’s no one else I could ever imagine sharing it with. I love you." But it also got a comment from Fox, who's in the process of divorcing Green. The actress wrote and then deleted, "Grateful for Sharna" with a purple heart. Burgess responded to Fox's comment with two white heart emojis, but that also disappeared when Fox's comment was deleted.

Fox's comment of course is open to interpretation. Presumably, Fox really is grateful her ex has moved on — as she has too. It will be two years ago this December that Fox returned home after making a movie aboard and told Green that she was happier living apart from him and they quietly separated. A few months later, in March 2020, she met Machine Gun Kelly on the set of Midnight In The Switchgrass and they fell hard. Fox has called him her "twin flame," saying their connection is deeper than soulmates, and they've been making steamy public appearances ever since.

Green and Fox filed for divorce in November and that's in the process of being sorted out.

It should also be pointed out that Fox recently visited Disneyland with Kelly (real name: Colson Baker) and was criticized for going seemingly without her kids. One outlet's headline: "Megan Fox goes to the Happiest Place On Earth with boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly, kids nowhere in sight after spending weekend with doting dad Brian Austin Green." (Baker's daughter wasn't there either, but that didn't make the headline.) Now Green visits, with the kids, one month later. However, Burgess had work events in Orlando, including one for DWTS, that she's been working around.

On Wednesday, Fox talked about frequently being mom-shamed in an interview with InStyle.

Fox has rarely said anything about her ex since their split, but she did publicly call him out in November, accusing him of making her look like an "absent mother" while he's "dad of the year." She took issue with Green's frequent posts featuring Journey, 4, Bodhi, 7, and Noah, 8.

The boys adorably crashed Fox's TV interview last week.

But any drama these is manufactured, Green said in his post. He ended his updated post by urging people to "spread kindness and love."

Green and Burgess started dating in December. The new loves said wearing face masks, amid the pandemic, on their early first dates helped their connection.
