Teen Mom 2 has an issue in common with most reality TV shows: When viewers are getting swept away by the drama, in the real world, the characters themselves typically have moved on and even churned up new excitement among their fans. That’s the case with the June 6 finale featuring Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin, which Us Weekly termed Teen Mom 2‘s most dramatic episode ever.
Javi contended that when it comes to her priorities, Kailyn doesn’t even seem to have him on her list. And that led to a discussion about divorce, with the focus on Lowry’s lack of enthusiasm for having more children.
“Javi and I have not been good for two freakin’ years, why on God’s green earth would I bring another child into that?” questioned Kailyn. “He says if I’m not gonna have any more kids, he can’t stay with me.”
Using FaceTime to confront each other, Marroquin and Lowry skipped any attempt to deal with the conflict between them. In place of that type of discussion, the couple went directly to the topic of planning for their divorce. Kailyn confirmed that having more children is not an option for her right now.
“I guess there is no future,” Javi declared in response. “I’m always gonna resent you, I’m always be mad at you deep down… Once we decide to get a divorce here, or when we decide to get a divorce when I get home, my dad can move my s–t, and when I get home I don’t have to go to that house.”
Fast-forwarding to finalizing that divorce, Marroquin requested that Kailyn begin the paperwork for their separation. When it came to their children, Lowry made it clear that she cares about the atmosphere in which they are raised, expressing concern about the risks of raising kids in a relationship filled with conflict.
“Isaac calls him ‘Dad,’ so, like, that’s really freakin’ hard,” admitted Kailyn. “But I want my kids to see a healthy, solid relationship, or not.”
Following the divorce announcement, the Teen Mom 2 star has started a new romance, which she revealed at a gay pride event, according to the Daily Mail.
Lowry, 24, was seen kissing her pal Becky Hater at the LGBTI Pride Celebration held Sunday in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Kailyn and Becky made it Instagram official, sharing photos cuddling.
“Girlfriend status,” proclaimed Lowry.
“Asbury pride with this fine lady,” wrote Becky.
The Daily Mail also cites an insider who revealed that Kailyn hooked up for two years with a girl during middle school. Although she was with a boyfriend at the time, Jo Rivera, he assumed it was a “phase,” said the insider.
Lowry also was linked to another pal, Gigi Hanna.
“Jo knew but didn’t care,” added the insider.
Kailyn’s estranged husband, Javi, is not in the country at this time, because he is serving in the Air Force. They were married for almost four years, tying the knot in September 2013 just before their son Lincoln was born.
In addition to Lincoln, Lowry has a son Isaac, who is 6, with her former boyfriend Jo. They starred on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant.
Wonderwall noted that Kailyn appears to be “fanning” the speculation that she is gay. However, she posted and then deleted a photo showing her kissing her gal pal. Prior to that, Lowry shared a photo captioned “My girl.”
In addition to the speculation about her new relationship, fans are admiring the Teen Mom star’s weight loss. Kailyn showed off her revenge body on Instagram, noted In Touch, citing a source who revealed that the divorce seemed predictable.
“They’ve been unhealthy for a while, and Kail knew divorce was inevitable,” shared the insider. “There was always a disconnect.”
Back to her healthy lifestyle, Lowry recently shared that she was just 20 pounds from her goal weight, according to OK! magazine. The reality TV star admitted the challenge.
“Nothing is harder than getting my eating habits down…Still trying to kick my addiction to food.”
In addition to dieting, Lowry does CrossFit and cardio and utilizes a corset to whittle her waistline.
