It was previously claimed that Brian “ doesn’t care ” that Megan is showing off her relationship with her new boyfriend all over social media.
An insider said: ‘Brian is no longer devastated by their split, as they’ve split up and split a few times now.
He doesn’t care that Megan and Machine Gun Kelly show off their relationship in public and try to focus on his own life and clearly date some girls in public themselves. He doesn’t take it personally.
Megan cut the deal with Brian and just got over it. It had to do with her meeting with Machine Gun Kelly, but they both know it was finally time to call it off. Brian is happy and enjoys not having to deal with constant drama. ‘
