“My relationship with Javi is going really well,” explained Briana to Blasting News. “Things between us are continuing to develop and we are happy together. As you can see in recent Instagram live videos, he also gets along well with my family. As far as marriage right now, no, we are not currently married. That rumor is really funny to us, but it’s not true. Also, fans can relax, I’m not pregnant with his baby. That also is a false rumor. As I stated, things between us are going great, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds.”
Secret weding rumors began swirling after Bri’s sister, Brittany DeJesus, posted a very telling tweet on Saturday, Jan. 6, implying that she and Javi are now legally related.
“Sooo… my brother in law just got me a dog. Wait until y’all see him,” Brittany wrote, referring to “Bubba,” the adorable gray-and-white English bulldog puppy Briana, 23, and Javi, 25, recently adopted together. Though fans can’t get enough of the cute new canine, they couldn’t help but zero in on Brittany casually dropping the “brother in law” label.
“OMG did Briana and Javi get married and not tell anyone?!” one fan asked, while another seemed excited over the idea of the pair having a surprise wedding ceremony: “Javi and Briana are so perfect together! If they really did get married, I’m so happy for them!”
However, some social media users suggested that it might be a little soon for Javi and Briana — who just started dating last year — to walk down the aisle. “NOOO way too fast you guys!” one wrote, while another predicted divorce if the reality TV twosome did, in fact, tie the knot: “LMAO if they got married, I bet they’ll get divorced ASAP. Sigh.”
Rumors of a wedding came weeks after Briana was forced to defend her relationship with Javi amid split rumors. Fans started speculating that the pair were dunzo this past Christmas Eve, after Javi posted a pic alongside son Lincoln, whom he co-parents with ex-wife Kailyn Lowry, and Bri shared some snaps of her two daughters Stella and Nova. While both Christmas celebrations looked super fun, it’s pretty clear they were spent separately.
In an interview with Us Weekly last month Briana confirmed that she and Javi did not call it quits. “Javi and I are still together. We are making plans toward our future. Our relationship has been great thus far and I believe we both see long term potential,” she told the publication. “Only the future will tell, but we’re enjoying being together and have a great time each time we are together.”
