Teen Mom OG star Cory Wharton has had a whirlwind week. Last week, he and his girlfriend Taylor Selfridge announced they were expecting a child, and not one day later did someone accuse him of cheating on her!
Well, it looks like Cory won’t go down without a fight. He is threatening to sue the woman who made the accusations against him, as well as Teen Mom fan accounts that perpetuated the drama. Keep reading to find out what is happening.
If you’re caught up with the news, you’ll know that Cory Wharton and his girlfriend Taylor Selfridge are expecting. But, fans wasted no time accusing Cory of cheating on his girlfriend. Cory is now threatening to take legal action against the woman who claimed he hit on her.
Last week, the couple confirmed their good news to Us Weekly, alongside a professional photoshoot. “It was definitely a surprise,” Cory told the outlet. Taylor is currently 11 weeks along, and this will be her first child. “Just being there from the day she found out that she’s pregnant and knowing that it was mine, I knew that I was going to have to step up.”
Cory is excited to do all the things as a new father that he did not get to do with his first daughter. “It’s exciting for me. It’s gonna be a lot, but I’m excited. I never went to an ultrasound, you know?” he said. “I never went to the doctor’s appointments to see her check-ups and things like that.”
Us reported that they plan to find out the gender of the child, but he is hoping for another daughter. Ryder joined Taylor and Cory in their photoshoot. Cory did not know Ryder was his child until she was six months old, which is why he is so excited to experience Taylor’s pregnancy.
“For me, this is like my first baby, almost, as weird as that sounds,” he told the outlet. Cory is also worried that his next child will have the same genetic disorder as Ryder, which is VLCAD. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the disorder prevents the body from converting fats into energy, which can be harmful during periods where a person is not or cannot eat.
“They think that I’m a carrier for VLCAD, because my daughter has it,” Cory said to Us. “We just need to make sure that she’s not a carrier. The next test is genetic testing. I would say that this is a blessing for us both.”
He said the new child has also helped Taylor and him feel closer to one another. “We’re going to have to deal with each other for the rest of our lives, you know?” he said. “If we like each other, if we stay together, if we decide to coparent, if we decide to get married … whatever it is, we have to be able to communicate.”
Then, the couple went on Instagram live to discuss the news, and one person in the comments accused him of cheating.
“Should I be like was she pregnant while you tried hooking up with me while you were in buffalo?” the Instagram user wrote. “Or when you sent d**k vids, or when you wanted me to come to nyc and come to your hotel room?”
And that wasn’t the only accusation…a Teen Mom fan account reported they had proof of his cheating.
In a now deleted post, @teenmomfanz shared this message:
Another woman has reached out to me about Cory. This source would like to remain anonymous. She said Cory sent her a d**k pic & she showed me proof. She showed me the date the photo was sent & his Instagram name. Unfortunately, I cannot post this photo because it is graphic & illegal.
