Brian Austin Green is getting back in the dating game. Days after Megan Fox’s estranged husband was photographed with Courtney Stodden, sources say he’s opening himself up to the possibility of a new relationship.

On Saturday, Green, 46, and Stodden, 25, were photographed grabbing lunch together, leading to speculation over whether the outing was romantic or friendly. An insider close to the actor tells Yahoo Entertainment the two “are friends” — for now — but admitted, “who knows what could happen.”

“He’s casually dating,” the source explained.

Yahoo Entertainment reached out to reps for Green and Stodden for comment, but did not receive responses.

According to TMZ, the Beverly Hills, 90210 star and Stodden met online about a month ago and are just friends. The outlet claims Green and the reality star are interested in making music together. Stodden, who has appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, officially divorced actor Doug Hutchinson earlier this year. She notoriously wed the Green Mile actor when she was just 16 and he was 50. 

People reports Green is “slowly dating” again, months after separating from Fox. The actors wed in 2010 and have been together for about 15 years. They share three sons: Noah Shannon, 7, Bodhi Ransom, 6, and Journey River, 3. 

“Brian is doing well. He and Megan are getting along,” an insider told the magazine. 

“When he doesn't see the kids, he is slowly dating,” the source continued. “He recently started hanging out with Courtney. They seem more like friends though.”

No one has to speculate about Fox’s new relationship. The 34-year-old actress made it clear she’s together with Machine Gun Kelly (real name: Colson Baker) as the two were photographed making out and holding hands on Monday. The rapper even referred to Fox as his girlfriend and wrote he’s “in love” as the two shared a romantic sunset dinner earlier this week.

Green emotionally confirmed he and Fox split on his podcast last month, shortly after the Transformers star was pictured with Kelly. Fox and the 30-year-old rapper met working on the upcoming film Midnight in the Switchgrass.

“She met this guy, Colson, on set on this film she’s working on… I’ve never met him, but Megan and I have talked about him,” Green shared. “From what she’s expressed he’s a really just nice, genuine guy. I trust her judgment. She’s always had really good judgment. I don’t want people to think that her or he are villains or that I was a victim in any way with any of this. Because I wasn’t. This isn’t something new for us, this is something new for people to experience and hear about in the press.”

Green also said Fox and Kelly were “just friends,” so, clearly a lot can change in a month.
