The “Beverly Hills, 90210” alum and Vaness Marcil ended their two-year engagement in 2003. Years later, the former couple was involved in a bitter court battle around the custody of their son, Kassius. The court case saw Brian Austin Green suing his ex in 2012 over an allegedly-lent sum of $200,000, per the Daily Mail.
The court dismissed Green’s case, following which he cut off his son — then 11-years-old — from his life for five years. “I speak with empathy regarding Kassius’ dad considering the complete devastation that my son went through. My son and my family will tell you the same. I’ve had a rule all through our 13-year court case in my family that ‘no one is ever to say a bad word about Kass’ dad,'” Marchil wrote in an Instagram response to a fan. “I just finally, now that Kass is grown, tell the truth regarding our court case and him cutting his son out of his life for five years. If you look back at our history, his father publicly tried to slander me, lie about me, shame me as a working mother, and take full custody of my son. I never commented. He admits this now. He’s lucky that I don’t ‘speak poorly’ of him after what he put our innocent boy through.”
Green’s response to the court’s ruling did not impress Marcil. The two had fallen out — there was no coming back!
