Fans of Teen Mom 2 know that drama escalated quickly on the show when Kailyn Lowry’s ex-husband Javi Marroquin began dating co-star Briana DeJesus who had only joined the show as the fifth mom last season.
Those watching the current season know that Marroquin seemed way more serious about DeJesus than she was about him, but now that they have split, they certainly aren’t friends. “We don’t talk,” he admitted at the OK! Magazine Summer Kickoff Party on Tuesday, May 15. “It is what it is. No hard feelings.”
Unfortunately, things are certainly going to be awkward this coming weekend where the cast is set to tape the reunion show for the current season, and Marroquin revealed he tried to back out of going. “I tried to get out of it, but it didn’t work. I will be there.” He added, “I want to talk to Kail and get out.”
Although their relationship played out on social media from when they began dating back in October 2017 before splitting in early 2018, fans are seeing it all happen on-screen for the first time, and it has been nothing but drama. Lowry and DeJesus have been having explosive fights during the first few episodes of the season concerning DeJesus being around Lowry’s sons, and Marroquin admitted that the show airing hasn’t help mend things.
“It’s so hard right now because we’re reliving it all,” Marroquin also told OK! on Tuesday. “Obviously me and Briana are no longer together. Kail sees our side so it hurts her and I have to deal with her.”
Teen Mom 2 airs on MTV Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
