The ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ star and the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ professional made their romance Instagram official this week, and sources have now said their relationship is going from strength to strength, with friends of the pair convinced they’re in it for “the long haul”.
One source said: “Their vacation to Hawaii has brought them closer. While they’ve become Instagram official, people don’t see how close they’ve actually become since their meeting. Those who know them can see them being together for the long haul and getting super serious.”
Brian, 47, and the 35-year-old dancer were first spotted together before Christmas, and Sharna confirmed their romance this week when she posted a picture of them kissing on Instagram.
And sources have said the couple are currently discussing how much of their relationship to air to the public, as they have differing views on privacy.
The insider added to Us Weekly magazine: “Brian is more open to the public about their relationship while Sharna is still holding back. It’s a bit complicated for her because she doesn’t want to be in that type of limelight.”
Sharna is reportedly concerned about getting involved in “unnecessary drama”, especially the “sensitive situation” regarding Brian and her estranged wife, Megan Fox, whom he split from in early 2020.
The former couple were recently at loggerheads on social media after Megan – who is now dating Machine Gun Kelly accused Brian of painting her as an “absent mother” on social media.
The ‘Jennifer’s Body’ star – who has sons Noah, eight, Bodhi, six, and Journey, four, with her ex – fumed after Brian marked Halloween (31.10.20) with a picture of Journey, as she accused him of using Instagram to make himself seem like “dad of the year”.
She commented on his photo: “Why does Journey have to be in this picture? It’s not hard to crop them out. Or choose photos that they aren’t in.
“I had a great Halloween with them yesterday, and yet notice how absent they are from my social media. I know you love your kids. But I don’t know why you can’t stop using them to posture via Instagram.
“You’re so intoxicated with feeding the pervasive narrative that I’m an absent mother, and you are the perennial, eternally dedicated dad of the year. You have them half of the time.
“Congratulations you truly are a remarkable human! Why do you need the internet to echo back to you what should be inexhaustibly evident in the way your children love you? (sic)”
