Saying goodbye…again. Javi Marroquin revealed in a new interview that he is being deployed by the Air Force — more than a year after he returned home to Delaware following a nearly eight-month stint in Qatar. The Teen Mom 2 star, 25, shared the news with Radar Online on Sunday, Dec. 11.
“I wasn’t expecting this at all. I’m trying to put everything together,” the dad-of-one — who shares son Lincoln, 4, with ex-wife Kailyn Lowry — told the outlet, adding that his girlfriend and fellow TM2 star, Briana DeJesus, has been a pillar of support during this difficult time. “She’s what’s keeping me together right now.”
Javi previously opened up about the potential of being deployed again on TM2, and explained to his former spouse, Kail, 25, that he was hoping to stay put in the U.S. “I just found out that I might need to leave again,” he said. “It’s between me and another guy. He is going through some family stuff so he doesn’t want to take it. I just got home, I don’t want to take it.”
Javi ended up not being deployed until now. According to Radar Online, he will be spending his final weeks at home with little Linc. News of Javi’s deployment comes as his failed attempt at fixing his relationship with Kailyn — who also shares son Isaac, 7, with ex Jo Rivera, and son Lux, 4 months, with ex Chris Lopez — continues to play out on WE tv’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.
Just last week, Javi took to Twitter to let fans know that he was tired of harping on his broken marriage to Kailyn. “Have more important things to worry about right now than a past relationship that’s dead to me,” he wrote. “Lincoln is the only thing keeping it alive. Which I’m blessed for don’t get me wrong. But him, that’s it.”
Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars airs on WE tv Fridays at 9 p.m. EST. See what Kailyn had to say in an exclusive interview with In Touch in the video below!
