He says he wants to make it work!
By the time Kailyn Lowry started taping Teen Mom 2, she had already broken up with her first baby daddy Jo Rivera. From there, she had some serious hardships in her dating life… and, to be fair, dating someone new while still living in your first baby daddy’s house is the definition of complicated. It’s totally not her fault.
Soon, Kailyn’s life began to stablize. When she met Javi, fans were convinced that she had finally found the one. Javi locked it down quickly, and the two walked down the aisle shortly after starting their relationship. Soon after, Kailyn gave birth to her second son, Lincoln. For once in Kailyn’s life, things seemed to be working out perfectly.
As we all know, that didn’t last for very long. After only a few years of marriage, Javi and Kailyn’s relationship took a sharp turn for the worse. They began to fight over having more children, and the frustrations of Javi’s deployment sealed the deal. The two split in one of the messiest divorces Teen Mom 2 has ever seen, but anyone who’s gone through a breakup knows that there are often lingering feelings even after the relationship comes to an end…
Kailyn has long since moved. The Mom recently given birth to another man’s child. Javi has moved on too, starting a very public relationship with co-star Briana DeJesus… or has he? In a new update to the wild tale of Javi and Kail’s relationship, Javi confessed that he might not be ready to let go of Kailyn.
Can’t Let Go
Even after finalizing their divorce, this couple decided to head into the Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars house to try to improve their co-parenting relationship. Rekindling a romance with her estranged ex was the last thing on Kail’s mind — at least according to an interview with In Touch. “No. Not even a little bit. I was dead set on the divorce and like, ‘Okay, we are here to co-parent,’” she revealed to the magazine when asked about her goals in the Boot Camp house.
But, there’s a twist (as usual)!
The mother-of-three also revealed that she and Javi might not have been on the same page. According to her, Javi had different intentions entirely. “Oh yeah, and that definitely comes across on the show,” she said of his desire to get back together. “So you’ll have to watch and see how that plays out.”
And play out it does. In a new clip, Kailyn asks Javi to examine what he’s bringing to the relationship. “Have you seen how you bring personal issues into coparenting?” she asks him.
Javi reveals the bombshell that the reason he does so is because he wants to try to make it work with Kailyn. “I do,” he says. “Since I’m not ready to let go, I feel like that’s the only way I can keep you close to me.” Kailyn fires back, “It’s not working.”
Working it Out
Javi admits, “I see that it’s not working… I just need you to be patient with me.” Kailyn cuts him off, demanding, “How can I be patient with you when you’re threatening to take everything that I’ve worked for?”
“What are you unhappy with?” Javi asks.
Kailyn immediately shuts him down, saying, “Everything I’ve had to say to you, I’ve already said to you.”
It’s important to keep in mind, though, that we’re just seeing this now… but it happened months ago during filming! We all know that it now looks like things may have changed since Javi has moved into a new relationship with a different Teen Mom. Have the tables now turned?
Ever since Javi confirmed that he is dating Kailyn’s co-star Briana DeJesus, sources have been saying that Kail’s looking at him differently. The Delaware-based reality star is reportedly struggling with feelings for her ex-husband, but these feelings may have surfaced a little too late.
In the meantime, Kailyn and Javi are working on a co-authored tell-all where they plan to open up with all of the nitty gritty details of their divorce. I guess we’ll see who is still harboring feelings and who is really moving on sometime soon!
