Brian Austin Green has laid bare his ‘stroke-like’ former illness, which lasted over four years and left him unable to read, write or even speak.
The 50-year-old Hollywood actor explained that his spiraling health problems included both vertigo and the inflammatory bowel condition ulcerative colitis.
During an appearance on the podcast Sex, Likes And Spray Tans hosted by Dancing With The Stars alum Cheryl Burke, Brian looked back at his medical crisis.
He shared that he experienced ‘neurological issues’ that took hold ‘after the vertigo’ and that at one point he spent three months bedridden.
A specialist eventually told him that along with stress, his diet was to blame – specifically ‘internal inflammation from gluten and diary.’

Brian’s struggles unfolded during the course of his marriage to Hollywood bombshell Megan Fox, which ultimately ended in 2020.
His floundering health forced him to take years off work, between the end of the show Anger Management in 2014 and the film Cross Wars in 2017.
On her podcast, Cheryl wondered whether Brian’s sickness may have been brought about by the car accident he famously survived back in 2014.
The incident occurred that December, when he and Megan were in the car together and a drunk driver crashed into them.
Brian however clarified that the roots of his distress were ‘dietary,’ while acknowledging that his circumstances could appear ‘confusing’ to an outsider.
