Oh no! Say it isn’t so. We know Tyler is probably really torn up about this news!
It seems that Tyler’s troubled dad, Butch, cannot seem to walk the straight and narrow, causing Tyler and wife Catelynn lots of stress; Not to mention traumatic flashbacks from their childhood.
The teen dad and hubby to Catelynn Lowell has long suffered with the lingering effects that his father’s addiction has had on him. The lack of stability in their home lives as teenagers is something that Tyler and Catelynn both share and was notably the biggest source of trouble the couple faced early on in their journey as first time parents. Their experience, which was first chronicled by MTV’s hit show Sixteen and Pregnant showed the young couple’s tough decision to give up their first born daughter, Carly, to adoptive parents Brandon and Theresa. Having come to the conclusion that they were not prepared for the pressures of parenting, the young couple made a selfless decision to allow their first born daughter to have a chance at the balanced home life neither of them had ever known.
The teen couple have managed to escape much of the troubled fate that their parents suffered, working tirelessly to provide a stable environment for their second born daughter, Nova. Lowell and Batierra even tied the knot the knot in August of 2015 and have since tried to maintain levels of consistency and sanctity within their marriage and home life.
But it seems that no matter how hard these two try their past always seems to catch up to them in the form of looming reminder named Butch. The absentee parent of Baltierra just can’t seem to place his feet on solid ground and continues to bounce in and out of the couple’s home, halfway houses- and even prison.
And much to our cringing dismay, it seems that once again his craving for drugs seems to be the reason for his latest fall from grace.
Butch Drops Bombshell
Lots of drama has been brewing on the new season of Teen Mom OG, but most notably the biggest bombshell dropped was the news that teen dad Tyler Baltierra’s father, Butch, is back on drugs.
Butch admittedly comes clean telling his son that he failed a drug test and was hauled off to jail AGAIN! Now released from lock up, Butch reveals what landed him back behind bars regretfully telling Tyler that he flunked the test because he’d been “snorting lines” of cocaine.
Tyler Takes it Well
C’mon, Butch! He has to know what a devastating blow this will be for his son! Although, Tyler surprisingly receives the news without much reaction (probably because he is used to this revolving door of broken promises from his dad). But, even though Tyler seems un-phased we’re completely in disbelief that Butch keeps making these bad decisions.
They say addiction is a horrible sickness and we’ve been told cocaine is one helluva’ drug; But this recent let down from Butch has us wondering if this dad will ever step up and make his family a priority? Tyler’s delinquent dad is visibly a source of pain and frustration for the young husband and dad who is desperately trying to beat his family’s grim odds.
