It appears that Javi Marroquin has officially moved on — and he can’t help but take a jab at ex-wife Kailyn Lowry! In a new interview with Hollywood Life, the Teen Mom 2 star opened about his new relationship and threw some shade at his famous ex. “I have a girlfriend now and haven’t been happier with anyone else,” Javi said. “I think I’m the lucky man. We have a mutual friend and she connected us. Then we met at her wedding. It’s been great since.” Ouch!
The 25-year-old mama is reportedly jealous of the new relationship, which has caused “straight drama” over the past month. A friend of Javi’s also told Hollywood Life, “Kailyn’s jealous that he’s got a new girlfriend and she’s taking it out on him. They were in such a great place and Javi thought they were going to be all good from now on, but she’s turned on him. He’s trying to keep the peace; he doesn’t want to argue with her when she’s pregnant, but it’s not easy. Anytime he has to interact with her lately she’ll try to pick a fight, it’s rough.”
Kail is currently pregnant with her third child — with her third baby daddy. She has a son, Isaac, 7, with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera and son Lincoln, 3, with Javi. Her third child is due any day now with ex-boyfriend Chris Lopez.
Yet despite her jealousy, a source close to the star suggested it could just be the pregnancy hormones. “Nobody thinks Kailyn’s still genuinely in love with Javi though, as much as she kids herself she is. It’s way more about wanting to feel secure and having someone there by her side, and that’s not a strong enough foundation to build a relationship on.” With Chris not having an interest in being in his child’s life, it’s easy to see why the mom-of-three is craving stability. Man or no man, though, we’re confident she’ll be just fine!
Teen Mom 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
