This must be so hard for Kail!
It’s official: Javi Marroquin is seeing someone new. But unlike his most recent ex, Lauren Comeau, Javi is keeping it in the Teen Mom 2 family. The star officially announced that he was dating co-star Briana DeJesus earlier this week! In the meantime, Kailyn has been flirting with someone new on Twitter, but is she just trying to cover up her lingering feelings for Javi.
Seeing your ex move on is never easy, especially when they put everything about their relationship out for all the world to see — and it’s headline news! Even though Kailyn seems to have moved on as well, it looks like there might be something she’s keeping a secret. Could Kail still be struggling to get over her feelings for Javi, even though she’s trying to move on?
Kail and Javi may have ended their marriage, but their time together is far from other. As the two share a young son, they’re likely to be in each others lives for many years to come — likely for the rest of their days.
Both Javi and Kailyn have moved on in their own ways since their split. For Kailyn, it meant getting pregnant with Chris Lopez and sparking rumors with a few other potential baes!
Now, Javi is leveling the playing field, having just announced that he and Briana DeJesus are officially dating. Hoewver, just because they’ve both “moved on,” it doesn’t mean that there aren’t some lingering feelings. Now, it looks like Kailyn is having a difficult time managing the way she feels for Javi.
“Kailyn is seriously struggling right now with her feelings towards Javi,” an inside source told Hollywood Life. “She honestly thought she was totally over him, but the Teen Mom 2 reunion taping threw up all kinds of emotions she really didn’t know she still had,” they added.
Needless to say, the fact that Javi is dating her co-star isn’t helping at all. The Teen Mom cast members were recently flown out to Los Angeles to film their reunion special, which meant Javi was spending a lot of time with his new girlfriend — and Kailyn had to see it whether she liked it or not. “Seeing Javi and Briana made her see red, she was so angry and pissed off that she actually had to walk away from filming and go to her room for a while to get her head together,” the source revealed.
Hard to Accept
It looks like Kailyn can’t even admit her feelings for Javi to herself! The insider explained:
“Kailyn really doesn’t want to admit to still being in love with Javi though, even to herself, so she’s been trying to rationalize her feelings by blaming other things. […] She’s been telling herself that it was just the fact that he was with Briana that was driving her crazy, but she knows deep down that it goes way past that.”
As for how Javi feels for Kailyn? Well, it seems to be pretty platonic. On a recent Instagram shot of Kailyn and him together, Javi wrote: “Despite everything that happened between us I’m happy we are at a place where we can go to events… have a good time and be civil. We’re doing a pretty good job raising these kids @kailynlowry #oneteam.”
It doesn’t help that Kailyn and Briana seem to be at odds with one another since Briana started dating Javi. After Javi confirmed his new relationship with Briana, fans began to criticize her on Twitter.
That’s when she tweeted “One woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure.” She added, “We aren’t friends. Never were. Just cause Dr. Miami scheduled us to [have surgery] together doesn’t mean anything lol.”
That’s not the only cast member that Briana shot down. In fact, she was upset with everyone other than Jenelle! “[Jenelle] was the only one who wasn’t acting like her s**t ain’t stink,” she tweeted. She continued:
“Plus she was the only one who wasn’t acting fake and choosing sides. She has never done anything shady to me for me not to like her. She’s cool alongside David [Eason]… they welcomed me with open arms. The others had a guard up and it’s understandable because their loyalty sided with their friends, but it’s still fake to choose sides.”
Leah Messer, who doesn’t normally get involved in much drama, made some pointed tweets in response. “Pay no attention to those who try to bring you down,” she tweeted.“They’re envious of where you are and how well you’re doing. Align yourself with those who support you and lift you higher. Don’t let the behavior of anyone distract you from being the best version of you.” Then she added a meme which read,“Whoever is trying to bring you down is already below you.”
