"When he doesn't see the kids, he is slowly dating," the source adds. "He recently started hanging out with Courtney [Stodden]. They seem more like friends though."
Green, 46, was spotted picking up food with Stodden, 25, last weekend at the Mejico Grill & Tequila Lounge in Agoura Hilla, California.
"They picked up food together," an eyewitness told PEOPLE after the outing. "Brian had already paid for food. They were not acting at all like they are together."
Fox, on the other hand, is growing closer to the 30-year-old rapper, whose birth name is Colson Baker. The two were spotted kissing and holding hands after a bar date in Los Angeles on Monday.
"They hang out at Megan's several times a week. She only sees him when the boys are with Brian," a source previously told PEOPLE. "The relationship seems too new and not serious enough for Megan to introduce him to her kids. Megan seems very happy though."
Green first revealed on his podcast …With Brian Austin Green their split came after Fox returned to their California home following months apart as she filmed a movie abroad with Kelly.
"She said, 'I realized when I was out of the country working alone that I feel more like myself and I liked myself better during that experience and I think that might be something worth trying for me,' " Green recalled what Fox told him during the conversation. "I was shocked and I was upset about it, but I can’t be upset at her because she didn’t ask to feel that way. It wasn’t a choice she made, that’s the way she honestly felt. We talked about it a little more and said let’s separate for a bit … and so we did."
