9 Things You Didn’t Know About Tyler And Catelynn Baltierra’s Relationship
Unfortunately, both Tyler and Catelynn were raised in households which were fueled by partying, drugs and alcohol and both struggled with having parents who were addicts. There is a lot of respect for both Catelynn and Tyler for being able to separate themselves from that lifestyle as the cycle usually repeats itself, but that’s not to say they weren’t involved with drugs at all. Both have recalled scary experiences from getting high from all kinds of methods, and Tyler admitted he even started using cocaine, but when Catelynn found out she put an end to it. The two were adamant about cutting out smoking weed once they became pregnant with Carly, but recently Tyler shocked fans when in a Twitter exchange he admitted that he smokes weed “when i have free time.” He added, ““Marijuana is only bad if the user makes it bad. Alcohol is only bad when the user abuses it… crack, heroin & meth? #ScrewAllThat.” In the season premiere of season six of Teen Mom OG, Catelynn also admitted that she smokes weed at least twice a day as a way to try to deal with her depression.
6. Tyler’s Abuse
Both Tyler and Catelynn did not hold book when writing their memoir, and Tyler ended up revealing some things about his past that were truly shocking. The reason Tyler wasn’t a virgin when he met Catelynn when they were only 12 is because he was molested by a friend of his older sister when he was only 9 years old. “One day I went over to her house with my sister and some other people, and for some reason or another, everyone else left but this older girl and me,” he recalled in the book. “For the next several hours, it was sex act after sex act after sex act. It went on all day. She had us doing everything she could think of, one thing after another.” He says he felt confused: “I didn’t know what the hell had happened.” He also revealed that because of what happened, he had a skewed perspective of sex. “It made me think sex was something kids could do, which influenced me to act too sexual when I was too young.”
