Meg Fox Reps Say She Quit Over Bay's 'Abuse'

Yesterday, Fox's reps released a statement saying she left, and wished all the best to the franchise. A few people weren't buying that, and cited it as poorly executed damage control. But today, new reports are saying, that may really be the case.

Via The Wrap, the newer details are as follows:
"Megan Fox walked away from “Transformers 3″ because director Michael Bay was “verbally abusive” toward her and “she had enough and decided to get out early,” an individual close to the actress has told The Wrap.
Given that the [original] story broke Wednesday on Deadline, it’s highly plausible that Paramount studio chairman Brad Grey’s well-known relationship with editor-in-chief Nikki Finke played a part in how the story was initially spun.
The studio stood by that position on Thursday with the statement: “Paramount had the unilateral right to exercise an option for Megan Fox to appear in ‘Transformers 3.’ Paramount at its sole election allowed the option to lapse.”
While Deal Central was skeptical at first that Fox would walk away from such a lucrative role, persistent whispers around Hollywood indicated that there was another side of the story. Bay has a history of demeaning his leading ladies, including “Pearl Harbor” star Kate Beckinsale; an individual close to the actress recalled that the director “wasn’t very nice” to her on the set, either.
Another individual close to the sequel’s production told TheWrap that Bay “wants his actresses to look a certain way, and if they can’t meet his absurd standards of beauty, he gets rid of them.” "
(High pitchWiz Khalifa style) Okaaaayyy.... I can dig that, like I said, I've quit over an XL Douche' director's abuse and head games before. 

Well, at the end of the day, she won't be appearing in the next installment of...

Loud Noises And Quickly Moving Objects 3: A Michael Bay Film.  

Munki Out.
