Megan Fox's spokesperson has moved swiftly to dismiss rumours the actress was dropped from the third Transformers movie after publicly criticising moviemaker Michael Bay - insisting it was the star's decision to leave the franchise.
It was revealed on Wednesday (19May10) that the sexy star will not be playing Shia LaBeouf's love interest in the second sequel, due to hit screens next year (11).
The news came after Fox slammed director Bay and revealed he was a "nightmare to work for" and "hopelessly awkward" in 2009 interviews.
She was later blasted by crew members who branded her "dumb" and claimed she was "about as ungracious a person as you can ever fathom".
Bay defended the 24 year old against the allegations, but it didn't stop online gossips from linking the incidents to Fox's sudden departure from the film series.
However, Fox's representative is adamant it was the actress' choice not to film a third Transformers movie.
The rep tells Access Hollywood, "Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3. It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best."
