It’s official: Briana DeJesus and Javi Marroquin have broken up. After a short, four-month relationship, this couple managed to become one of the most notorious pairs in Teen Mom history thanks to their low-key love triangle with Kailyn Lowry. After all, in addition to Javi being Kailyn’s ex-husband, he’s also the father of her second son. Now, it looks like all of the awkwardness and tension is coming to an end as news that the controversial couple officially split has broken!
Fans saw the split coming yesterday when Javi and Briana began to delete pictures of one another from their social media, but now both of the stars have confirmed the breakup. As to be expected, they both have their own sides of the story, and they don’t entirely match up!
Some breakups are quiet and mutual, but when it comes to the Teen Mom cast, it’s almost always a good deal messier. It became clear that the end was coming for Javi and Briana when they both started to delete one another from their social media accounts, and apparently they couldn’t work through whatever brought them to that point. Though they’ve both confirmed that the relationship is over, their explanations for the breakup are understandably pretty different.
For Briana, it came down to having conflicting views of the future.
“Javi and I are not together anymore,” she revealed to Blasting News. “Our future just doesn’t line up. He doesn’t want me to get my surgery for a breast lift, lipo, and tummy tuck (which I’m doing in two weeks) because it’ll look bad on his name at work.”
Javi has always spoken about wanting a big family and commitment, and apparently that didn’t sit right with Briana. “I don’t plan on moving in with him in the summer and for these reasons, he broke up with me,” she revealed.
Hurt and Upset
Javi’s story is predictably different. “Some questions about our futures couldn’t be answered because we both do have kids and live two different lifestyles, her being in Florida and me in Delaware,” he told Radar Online. “I didn’t agree with some of her future plans being exposed for the world to see for our future and any future employers and I wish we could’ve compromised.”
He admitted that he was “overthinking,” but said that he “couldn’t figure out a way to answer some of those questions.”
Even though Briana claims that the surgery is why they split, Javi insists that “[t]he surgery itself wasn’t the issue.”
Javi and Briana are both pretty hot-tempered, but they seem to be having a very amicable breakup. “Unfortunately it didn’t work out for us,” Javi said. He added:
“Bri is an amazing person with the biggest heart I’ve ever got to hold. Everything she goes through and she’s still selfless and does her best to please others. She’s got a bright future and she’ll make any guy feel special.”
Briana also seemed to wish Javi the best. “I have no bad things to say about him,” she confessed. “He wanted a wife and home right now and I didn’t see a reason to rush. I wish him the best going forward, and I am sad things panned out this way, but this is where things currently stand.”
“I’m hurting a little right now. I’m upset about it,” Javi revealed.
Unsurprisingly, Kailyn chose to stay out of it for the most part.The Teen Mom star said that “It’s none of [her] business and [she wishes] Javi the best, as always.”
Their stories leave many questions, but one that’s in everyone’s mind is, of course, what’s going to happen to the dog Javi and Briana JUST got together?!
