In 2011, Shia strongly hinted at a sexual relationship between himself and Megan, which would have been totally fine except Fox was in a RELATIONSHIP with Brian Austin Green at the time of the alleged hook-up.
The revelation shocked fans not only because the pair engaged in an affair(though Megan claimed that she and Brian were on a break at the time), but also because of Shia's cavalier and arguably cocky attitude towards the whole situation.
Well, nearly two years after the reported romance took place, the "Transformers" star has admitted that the pair were actually on a date around that time, but it just didn't work out for them.

He also fesses up to "philandering around" with former co-star Isabel Lucas. I think she's a fu**ing awesome person and an incredible actress.
