Actress Vanessa Marcil is doubling down on her recent claims that her ex and baby daddy, Brian Austin Green, is not speaking to their 16-year-old son, Kassius Lijah. Marcil says that Green and his wife, Megan Fox, cut themselves out of Kassius’ life five years ago after losing their attempt to get full custody.
Marcil posted an emotional message on Instagram this past weekend and shared some details of her battle with Green that started twelve years ago. Then, a couple of days later, she defended the message and revealed more details about Green and Kassius’ interactions.

In her original weekend post, Marcil said that she was served with legal papers twelve years ago and ended up spending eight years defending herself and her son in custody court. Marcil claimed that Green and Fox attempted to get full custody of Kassius and they also tried to get child support. They also took Marcil to civil court and tried to get $200,000 from her.
However, Green and Fox ended up losing all of those cases, and a judge called them “frivolous.” Marcil says that she and Green ended up getting 50/50 custody, but Green and Fox cut themselves off from Kassius and have not allowed him to be a part of their kids’ lives.
The couple have three boys – Noah, 6, Bodhi, 4, and River, 2.
Two days after her original post, Marcil responded to a fan and explained that Green and Kassius have been at the same place “a few times in passing,” including a wedding, a resort, and a play. They have also had a few hour-long lunches, but “that is it” says Marcil.
“The truth is the truth, and it IS needed for healing after 15 years. Love to all parents. Moms and dads. Let’s put our kids first,” wrote Marcil.
According to People Magazine, Marcil says that she didn’t speak publicly until now about the “heartbreaking” custody battle because she wanted to protect her son from the paparazzi who were following and terrifying him.
Marcil also says that Kassius has never met his youngest brother, River, and he is also not allowed to know where his dad, stepmom, and three younger brothers live. She then urged her fans to put their kids first and to “do better” for them. She also revealed that Kass has been heartbroken since Green cut him out of his life with no explanation.
Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox have not responded to Vanessa Marcil’s allegations.
