This Teen Mom star has brought us a boat load of drama this week! First, we thought fans were overreacting when they assumed his girlfriend was pregnant. Then, they confirmed that they were expecting. And now, people are coming forward saying that he was cheating on his girlfriend…while she was pregnant.
We’re going to dissect these accusations and see where the truth lies in the matter. Keep reading to decide if people are trying to stir the pot, or if he’s actually pretty shady.
If you’re caught up with the news, you’ll know that Cory Wharton and his girlfriend Taylor Selfridge are expecting. Fans were speculating the MTV stars were having a child, but weren’t convinced until they confirmed the news yesterday.
The couple confirmed the news to Us Weekly, alongside a professional photoshoot.
“It was definitely a surprise,” Cory told the outlet. Taylor is currently 11 weeks along, and this will be her first child. “Just being there from the day she found out that she’s pregnant and knowing that it was mine, I knew that I was going to have to step up.”
Cory is excited to do all the things as a new father that he did not get to do with his first daughter. “It’s exciting for me. It’s gonna be a lot, but I’m excited. I never went to an ultrasound, you know?” he said. “I never went to the doctor’s appointments to see her check-ups and things like that.”
Us reported that they plan to find out the gender of the child, but he is hoping for another daughter. Ryder joined Taylor and Cory in their photoshoot. Cory did not know Ryder was his child until she was six months old, which is why he is so excited to experience Taylor’s pregnancy.
“For me, this is like my first baby, almost, as weird as that sounds,” he told the outlet. Cory is also worried that his next child will have the same genetic disorder as Ryder, which is VLCAD. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the disorder prevents the body from converting fats into energy, which can be harmful during periods where a person is not or cannot eat.
“They think that I’m a carrier for VLCAD, because my daughter has it,” Cory said to Us. “We just need to make sure that she’s not a carrier. The next test is genetic testing. I would say that this is a blessing for us both.”
He said the new child has also helped Taylor and him feel closer to one another. “We’re going to have to deal with each other for the rest of our lives, you know?” he said. “If we like each other, if we stay together, if we decide to coparent, if we decide to get married … whatever it is, we have to be able to communicate.”
Well, the pair may or may not be staying together, since people have been coming out of the woodwork saying Cory has recently cheated on Taylor. The couple went on Instagram live to discuss the news, and one person in the comments accused him of cheating.
“Should I be like was she pregnant while you tried hooking up with me while you were in buffalo?” the Instagram user wrote. “Or when you sent d**k vids, or when you wanted me to come to nyc and come to your hotel room?”
But that’s not the only accusation…a Teen Mom fan account reported they had proof of his cheating.
