People Editorial Guidelines Published on May 30, 2022 12:10 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Sharna Burgess is setting the record straight. On her Instagram story Sunday, the Dancing with the Stars pro opened up about her decision to purchase a brand-new home — and it has nothing to do with her relationship with Brian Austin Green. "I've been looking at properties again today. Brian's been coming with me, which is amazing. But I had a bunch of people wildly asking me why Brian and I aren't living together and why I'm buying a new house. So insane," Burgess, 36, said. "I sold my house because I made amazing money on it because the market is so incredible, and I'm buying a house because my mom is moving over here and I'm buying somewhere for her to live. And also, invest. Is that not obvious?" She continued, "First of all, is it not obvious that Brian and I live together? And what is so scary about buying a house that you don't live in? I don't get it. I was very confused." Sharna Burgess Shares Special Moments from Pregnancy So Far in Sweet Reel: 'I'm Meant for This' Burgess was first linked to Green, 48, in late 2020.

"She is her own self and an amazing woman," Burgess wrote on her Instagram Story. "As I am my own self and an amazing woman. This notion that you 'follow in the footsteps' of your partners X [sic] is dangerous." She continued, "If you live by that idea then it will lead you to the same result. The relationship ending. You are a unique one of a kind woman, don't follow in anyone's footsteps, make your own path. Create the path YOU want."
