Teen Mom doesn’t shy away from all of the difficulties, trials, and tribulations of what it’s like to raise a child from a young age. We’ve seen some of the cast members at their lowest moments, as victims, perpetrators, and everything in between. So it goes without saying that the fans have followed along as the Teen Mom cast members have served time in jail and prison.
Now, another Teen Mom star is joining the ranks of cast members with criminal histories, as their past legal troubles are being revealed.
Now, Young and Pregnant is getting some new faces as well.
MTV recently gave a sneak peek of the two moms, who will make their debut on Oct. 22.
The first new mom, Kiaya Eliott, gave birth to her first child in December 2018. She gave birth while she was dating a woman named Teazha, and her baby daddy is unfortunately out of the picture. According to sleuthing by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, her baby daddy is currently in jail.
Now, more about Kiaya’s story is coming out in a lengthy preview that MTV released.
“I’m Kiaya. I’m 18,” Kiaya spills in the trailer. She goes on:
“This is my girlfriend Teazha and we’ve been dating for two years. She and I were high school sweethearts. We’re best friends and she’s my first love. But then I found out she was cheating on me, and I broke up with her. That was right around the time that my dad passed away, so it was a really sensitive time for me. In the midst of me and Teazha not talking, I met X’Zayveon. I just thought X’Zayveon was really, really cute. I had never, like, really dealt with a boy before.”
She then revealed that X’Zayveon has been “in and out of trouble,” and that he’s “currently in jail”!
“I knew of X’Zayveon’s lifestyle, but I didn’t really care because I had no intentions of being with him, and I had no intentions of having to deal with him for, like, the next 18 years,” Kiaya spilled, going on:
“Then Teazha started coming back around. She apologized and made a lot of promises. She’s made it really clear to me that she wants to treat him as if he was hers, and I’m really grateful for that because she really doesn’t have to. I haven’t spoken to X’Zayveon since he’s been in jail, so I’m trying to work as much as possible to save money for the baby.”
Records found by Starcasm revealed that X’Zayveon was arrested on August 18, 2018, only four months before his son with Kiaya was born. He was “initially charged with three felonies and three misdemeanors, including possession of a firearm, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and eluding police. The three misdemeanor charges were not prosecuted, and one of the felonies was amended to a lesser felony charge,” according to the source.
