“Transformers” star Megan Fox has threatened to file a lawsuit against a website that published fake nude photos of the actress.
According to reports, the legal team of Megan Fox has fired off a cease and desist letter to parody website called Celebrity Jihad, after the site published a nude photo of Megan, claiming the actress had stripped nude to show off her post-pregnancy body — barely three weeks after giving birth to her baby son Noah.
The picture was said to be convincing enough to trick some Internet users into believing it was really Megan Fox in the picture.
The lawyers of the actress are not impressed at all with the nude photo, claiming it is 100% fake and must be taken down the soonest possible time, or they will sue Celebrity Jihad.
However, the editors of the website are refusing to cooperate, and have fired back a feisty response.
A rep for Celebrity Jihad told media outlet TMZ, “While we appreciate Megan Fox’s concern for her image, we find it hard to believe that a woman who spent two Transformers movies bent over with her breasts pressed together could have her reputation damaged by a blatantly satirical website.”
Megan Fox began her acting career back in 2001, with several minor television and film roles, and played a regular role on the “Hope & Faith” television show. In 2004, she made her film debut with a role in “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,” while in 2007, she co-starred as Mikaela Banes, the love interest of Shia LaBeouf’s character in the blockbuster film, “Transformers,” becoming her breakout role. Fox reprised her role in the 2009 sequel, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.” Later in 2009, she starred as the eponymous lead in the film “Jennifer’s Body.” She is also considered as one of the modern female sex symbols and has appeared in magazines such as “Maxim” and “FHM.”

The legal team of Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox countered the claims of a photographer who accused them of intentional infliction of injury, false imprisonment, and assault as invalid and unprovable.
According to E! News, Delbert Shaw filed a lawsuit on March 26 this year. Green allegedly assaulted Shaw two years ago in Hawaii. Shaw also accused Fox of throwing his iPhone in the ocean while her husband beat him up.
Delbert Shaw claimed that Fox encouraged her husband to attack him by asking, “Are you going to let him get away with that?” The plaintiff claimed that the alleged encouragement created a “civil conspiracy” between them to assault him.
However, the couple’s attorneys asked the court to keep Megan Fox out of the case. Fox and Green’s attorneys declared that a single statement does not create conspiracy.
E! News further reported that the attorneys of Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green also asked the court to bar Shaw’s claim of false imprisonment based on the one-year statute of limitations rule. Green’s attorney pointed out that Delbert Shaw claimed the assault occurred in December 2010- and then noted that Shaw failed to file his claim until two years had passed.
In addition, Fox and Green’s legal camp also claimed that Shaw cannot prove his claim for intentional infliction of emotional distress to be of “substantial quality or enduring quality.”
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green will next appear in court on August 9.

A French magazine apologized to Megan Fox for misquoting her in a March interview.
According to E! News, the 26-year-old ‘Transformers’ actress was misquoted in the April issue of French magazine Jalouse. Fox supposedly said that she “would not trade my place with an unattractive girl.” She actually meant to say “attractive” instead of “unattractive,” as Fox claimed to be self-deprecating and didn’t consider herself “attractive.”
The wife of Brian Austin Green was understandably upset about the misquote. So Fox took to her Facebook page at the end of March and declared that Jalouse magazine “grossly distorted and misrepresented” her comment.
To its credit, Jalouse graciously admitted its mistake and printed a retraction. E! News reported that Fox thanked the magazine when she posted anew on Facebook this Thursday. She also posted their retraction and apology.
“In a Jalouse cover story featuring Ms. Megan Fox,” Fox quoted Jalouse as saying in their apology, “We unfortunately misquoted Ms. Fox. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused,” Jalouse magazine told readers and fans of Fox.
“I’ve never made vapid self-serving comments,” Megan Fox had said in an earlier interview. The pregnant actress added that “in contradiction am uncontrollably self deprecating.”

The publicist of Megan Fox abruptly cut off an interview on ‘Entertainment Tonight’ when interviewer Steve Jones brought up the forbidden topic of Fox’s alleged pregnancy.
Celebrity-Gossip reports that the ‘Transformers’ star and the British TV personality started the interview by talking about Fox’s new gig as the face of The Sharper Image. After asking what Fox’s favorite gadget is, Jones commented, “Do you know the ultimate gadget that every man wants? A baby.”
Miss Fox was initially confused by the sudden change in topic. “A baby?” she asked. She then added, “Oh, I know where you’re going with this…”
The 25-year-old Megan Fox first encouraged Steve Jones by saying “Alright go, go what do you wanna know?”
Former ‘X Factor’ host Jones then asked, “Any plans to give anybody a baby?”
Fox warned Jones about her publicists. “You already hear the grumbles,” she said. But the ‘Entertainment Tonight’ host didn’t take the hint and kept pressing about Fox’s expected first child with husband Brian Austin Green.
“No, no,” Megan Fox told Steve Jones while her publicist was heard saying, “Stop, stop. Sorry, no.” Then the ‘Entertainment Tonight’ interview was officially cut off.
