Was he using her all along?
When the Teen Mom cast members got started, they were just like everyone else. However, as they became more and more famous, they stopped being the girl next door and became reality superstars. There’s no question as to why someone would want to get involved with a reality star — if you’re dating someone famous, you’re probably going to get a bit of the fame yourself. Especially if that person is still on TV every week.
Naturally, for many stars there is no bigger betrayal than someone dating you just to get famous. For Kailyn Lowry, it looks like that might be part of her reality. Although she and Javi Marroquin have long since split up, it looks like there might be more sketchiness than meets the eye on Javi’s side of things. In fact, Kail recently accused him of only getting involved with her for the fame!
Kailyn and Javi were married for almost four years which is pretty impressive by Teen Mom standards. Although the exact reason for their split is still unclear, closely held secrets about their relationship are coming out every day — and causing fans to speculate wildly!
The newest one, well… it puts Javi in a very unflattering light.
Kailyn Lowry has a rule when it comes to dating: she prefers not to date anyone who knows she’s on television. It’s understandable. When you’re on TV every week, there are always going to be people who want to ride your coattails. Now, Kailyn is claiming that coattail riding was Javi’s plan all along.
When Javi and Kailyn met, they hit it off immediately. Not to mention, Kailyn must have been relieved that Javi told her that he had never watched Teen Mom. After all, they met at a mall — how much more casual can you get than that?
But during a recent appearance on the Mouthing Off podcast, Kailyn let fans know that there was more to Javi’s story than he initially let on.
“Apparently he knew who I was and acted like he had no idea,” Kailyn said. “Javi had me fooled. He actually knew who I was and pretended he didn’t know.”
Even though he eventually told her, by the time he came clean, it was too late. Javi had spent eight months of their relationship lying to her. Kailyn admitted that it was difficult to learn the truth. “It was hard to swallow,” she said. “I thought the whole thing was [a lie]. I still kind of have those feelings, that plays out on Marriage Boot Camp too.”
So what’s the big deal? Javi didn’t tell her that he knew she was on the show. Is that really a big betrayal?
Well, according to Kailyn, she thinks that Javi just used her to get on TV. Host Olivia Caridi asked Kailyn if she thought he was just using her to get on the show. “Oh absolutely. 100 percent. But I don’t think that he could have ever predicted that he would have fallen in love with me like the way that we were together,” the star responded. I guess we’re starting to understand why they split, huh?
Having a marriage based on a lie may be what doomed them from the start. Kailyn said that she loved Javi “at one point,” but that she wasn’t in love with him by the time she got pregnant with Lincoln.
Kailyn also seems to think that Javi got what he wanted out of the relationship. “It couldn’t have worked out better for him!” she concluded.
