Can they make it work?
Over the years, we’ve seen some pretty insane love stories on Teen Mom. Many of the cast members put up with years of difficulty before they finally found their perfect match, while others are still looking for “The One.” But there’s no love story more crazy and difficult to follow than Kailyn and Javi’s.
Even though Kailyn would probably prefer if Javi was out of her life forever, that’s just not possible. After all, they have to co-parent their son Lincoln together at least until he turns eighteen. In the meantime, the two have to deal with each other… and whatever lingering feelings that are still blooming between them.
Add in Briana DeJesus to the mix, and you’ve got a storm brewing. We all see how that went down, with the first three episodes of Teen Mom 2 focusing on the love triangle almost exclusively. Javi has made it clear in these episodes that he’s totally over Kailyn and ready to move on, but just how authentic is that?
There are many fans and viewers who have believed from the very beginning that Javi and Kailyn would find their way back into each other’s arms. Others believe that they will never be able to work out their differences. Now, this shocking bombshell is putting their relationship in an entirely different light.
For anyone who wants to see Kailyn and Javi back together, the plot has just thickened!
Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin’s relationship was a wild ride from the very beginning. Kailyn and Javi met during season four of Teen Mom 2, and they quickly fell head over heels in love with one another. The Teen Mom cast redefine what it means to move fast in a relationship, but Kail and Javi may have taken the cake. In fact, Javi put a ring on it only a few months after he and Kail started dating!
Only two months later, the two were walking down the aisle… and Kailyn was pregnant with her second son, Lincoln!
Things were (mostly) fine between the newlyweds, but nothing puts a strain on a couple quite like distance. Javi and Kail were put to the ultimate test when Javi was deployed for a tour of duty with the US Air Force in December of 2015. That’s when things started to get ugly.
Between pics of Javi hanging out with his female “friend” surfacing online and rumors of Kailyn cheating as well, things seemed to be headed for trouble. Then in May of 2016, Kailyn publicly confirmed that the two were separating after three years of marriage. It took several more months before the truth came out and Kailyn and Javi both admitted to being with other people during their separation.
Fans held out hope that Kailyn and Javi might make it work despite their divorce, but Kailyn quickly put a pin in that when she became pregnant by another man. During her pregnancy, things got even nastier between her and Javi when she filed a Protection From Abuse after he entered his old home without her permission. Although Kailyn eventually dropped the PFA, it seemed that the damage was done. There was no way that the two could come back from that… right? Apparently, that’s just not the case.
“Javi and I definitely talked about [getting back together],” Kailyn spilled to Radar Online. “There were times where we were maybe getting back together,” she explained. But another inside source has much more to add on the subject.
MTV has the difficult task of whittling hundreds of hours of footage down into 45-minute episodes for television. That means a lot of drama is going to be left on the cutting room floor. Luckily, during the reunion specials, a live studio audience bears witness to everything the cast members say. Teen Mom gossip YouTuber The Grace Report received a special insight from an anonymous member of the reunion audience.
“Dr. Drew asked Javi point blank, ‘Do you think that you’re a love addict or a sex addict? Is that why you can’t seem to stay single?’” Grace pointed out that Javi has hopped from relationship to relationship, dating Lauren Comeau, Briana DeJesus, and Lauren Comeau again! Javi can also be seen showing off a ring he got to propose to Briana in the sneak peek for the season. According to Grace, that’s what broke up his relationship with Briana DeJesus!
“It freaked out her mom Roxanne so badly that she was like, ‘Dude, pump the brakes on this! A ring for my daughter already? This is not going to fly at my house!’” Grace explained.
But is it possible that Javi is jumping from relationship to relationship because of Kailyn? Luckily, Grace got down to it.
Kailyn has insisted from the very beginning of this season that she isn’t salty about Javi moving on at all, but fans aren’t exactly buying it, and neither is The Grace Report’s source.
“Well, guess what’s going to come out in the upcoming reunion special?” Grace reveals. “Kail hooked up with Javi after he and Briana broke up!” And like many fans who have noticed Kailyn’s jealousy over the relationship, Grace was not surprised to hear this news from the source. Shockingly, it was Kail who made the first move!
“They both admitted on stage that it was Kail who tried to get into Javi’s pants,” Grace revealed. Apparently, whatever her tactic was, it worked.
Kailyn’s take on things is a little different. “We knew in the back of our minds it wasn’t going to work,” she claimed to Radar. She insisted that now all hope of her getting back with Javi is over. “I don’t know why we talked about it. I wouldn’t get back together with him.” She cites his relationship with Briana as a huge reason for the split.
“Javi and I were in such a good place right before Briana and him started dating,” she told Radar. “We worked so hard to get there. It was disappointing when it all fell apart.” She explained that watching the recently-aired episodes has made tensions high again. “Watching back is really hard,” she spilled. And the bombshell of Javi’s proposal didn’t help.
“I did not know about the proposal until after they broke up,” she said. “I would’ve told him he’s f**king crazy. That’s on him.”
As for f**king crazy, many fans might use that term to describe Kailyn herself after news broke that she got violent with Briana during the most recent reunion filming!
