Briana DeJesus & Kailyn Lowry: Fighting Over Javi Marroquin?!
Over the past several months, we heard non-stop rumors about a secret romance between Teen Mom 2 stars Briana DeJesus and Javi Marroquin.
For most of that time, Briana and Javi both refused to comment on reports that they’re hooking up in secret.
But as of today, it seems the cat is out of the bag, and we’re guessing Kailyn Lowry is less than thrilled by the news that her ex-husband and her newest castmate are officially a couple.
“We are dating,” Marroquin says. “We’ve been friends for a while and we weren’t in a rush.”
Javi adds that he and Briana “decided to make it official” while they were both in Los Angeles to tape the annual Teen Mom 2 reunion show over the weekend.
As you may have already heard, it was an interesting weekend for all involved, with drama that started when David Eason pulled a knife at the pre-party and didn’t end until David Eason tried to fight Nathan Griffith after the taping.
(That dude really needs his own show.)
But while Jenelle Evans and her husband caused the biggest scenes, Briana and Kailyn managed to stir up some trouble of their own.
“Kail was talking to someone about how the cast doesn’t really get along anymore, and Briana must have assumed Kail was making a dig at her,” one witness tells The Ashley’s Reality Roundup.
“From there things got ugly.”
A loud argument ensued, and while the source doesn’t know exactly what was said, it’s believed the co-stars were fighting about Javi.
“Briana’s mom was in the room with her and she jumped into the argument,” the source says.
“Then Brittany [Briana’s sister] heard what was going on and came into the room and jumped in too.”
Apparently, the confrontation got so intense that other cast members got involved–and it didn’t end well for them:
“Leah [Messer] was there, too, and was kind of caught in the middle,” the source added.
“She ended up leaving the room in tears because of what was said to her.”
The incident was reportedly caught on camera, and the source adds that the entire reunion was unusually hostile.
“It was incredibly tense and uncomfortable for pretty much all of the cast members on Saturday because most of the cast does not get along,” says the witness.
It doesn’t look like Briana has any regrets about antagonizing Kailyn, however.
In fact, it seems she’s doubling down:
That’s Briana’s new profile picture on Twitter.
As you can see, she appears to be very comfortable with Kailyn’s ex-husband these days.
Interestingly, Briana deleted all of her tweets at some point in the last 24 hours, so it’s possible she hasn’t been enjoying the reaction she’s received from Kailyn’s fans.
Whatever the case, it doesn’t look as though these former friends will be calling a truce anytime soon.
