Megan Fox has slammed a US politician who accused her of forcing her sons to dress up as girls. 

Republican Robby Starbuck took to social media recently to make some alarming claims about the actress and her family. 

Fox and her ex-partner, 'Beverly Hills, 90210' star Brian Austin Green, have three sons together - Noah Shannon (10), Bodhi Ransom (9), and Journey River (6). 

The couple's parenting has come under scrutiny over the years because their sons have been pictured wearing dresses.

Starbuck, who ran to represent U.S. House Tennessee District 5 in 2022, claimed he personally witnessed the boys complaining about dressing up as girls. 

"These are Megan Fox’s sons. We used to live in the same gated community and our kids played at the park. I saw 2 of them have a full on breakdown saying they were forced by their mom to wear girls clothes as their nanny tried to console them," he captioned a picture of Meghan and her sons. 

Starbuck added: "It’s pure child abuse. Pray for them."

Fox initially ignored Starbuck's tweet but took to Instagram on Sunday to address his remarks. She labelled him a "clout chaser".

"I really don’t want to give you this attention because clearly you're a clout chaser but let me teach you something…irregardless of how desperate you may become at any given time to acquire wealth, power, success, or fame - never use children as leverage or social currency," she wrote. 

The 37-year-old accused Starbuck of exploiting her children's gender identity to gain attention for his political campaign. 

"I have been burned at the stake by insecure, narcissistic, impotent, little men like you many times and yet I'm still here. You fu**ed with the wrong witch," she concluded.

Green also came to his ex-wife's defence. He called Starbuck's story "bogus". 

"This person trying to claim this is true is a perfect example of someone with selfish motives that does not care about negatively affecting a parent-child relationship," he told TMZ.

Starbuck is not backing down from his comments. He shared a screenshot of Fox's post and claimed she was threatening him with witchcraft. 

"Megan Fox has responded to my concern about her sons being dressed up in girls clothes with an IG post where she seemingly threatens me with witchcraft. Does that seem like a sane response to you? Her post and my response back are below," he tweeted. 


Fox is not the only star who has come under fire for allowing her children to dress up in clothes typically worn by the opposite sex. 

South African-born actress Charlize Theron adopted a boy named Jackson in 2012 and a daughter named August in 2015.

But the Oscar winner made headlines in 2019 when she announced that both her children identify as girls. 

"Yes, I thought she was a boy, too until she looked at me when she was three years old and said: 'I am not a boy!' So there you go! I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive," she told the Daily Mail.

Angelina Jolie also raised eyebrows when her daughter, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt - whom she shares with Brad Pitt, started dressing up as a boy. She was spotted wearing suits and sporting a buzz haircut. 

Jolie told Vanity Fair in a 2010 interview that Shiloh loves dressing up like a "little dude".

"Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It's how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys' everything. She thinks she's one of the brothers," the actress said about the then four-year-old.
