The Teen Mom 2 star caused a stir over the weekend when he was photographed during a night out with his ex-wife and baby mama, Leah Messer — which his ex-fiancée, Brooke Wehr, seemingly had strong opinions about, according to Instagram.
Brooke took this time to air out her ex for cheating with her best friend during their time together and even shared a screen shot of a text exchange where Jer told the friend in question that he would come clean. In a new interview, the pipeliner set the record straight.
"At the time we hooked up, I was single. This happened last winter, and Brooke was with someone else at the same time. We were broken up, and I never thought Brooke and I would get back together. We did it one time and it was over. Afterward, Brooke and I got back together and it was kind of awkward, so [Brooke’s friend] and I kept our mouths shut,” he told The Ashley's Reality Roundup.
This is hardly the first time Brooke, who has a daughter of her own from a previous relationship, accused her ex of stepping out on her. However, Jeremy also cleared up what really went down between them.
“Brooke and I broke up back in February. That’s when she posted all the stuff on social media about me, lying about me hooking up with a Teen Mom producer and stuff. After all that, we tried to work things out and we got back together," he told the outlet.
"About two weeks later, we had a talk and she basically told me that she needed me to move to Ohio where she lives, and stop being on the road for work so much in order for our relationship to work. I wasn’t going to walk away from my home in West Virginia or my career, so we ended things again. There was no arguing or anything, just a clean break.”
And there you have it, folks.
