He’s covering up his past! Teen Mom 2 star Javi Marroquin thought his relationship with his costar Briana DeJesus was going to last, so they decided to make their love permanent by getting matching tattoos together. But now, in an exclusive interview with In Touch, Javi explained why he decided it was time to cover up his Briana tattoo after their split — and it has to do with his current girlfriend and baby mama, Lauren Comeau. Scroll through the gallery to see Javi’s new ink.
“My relationship with Lauren has grown over the past year and I do see myself spending the rest of my life with her, so out of respect, I wanted to cut all ties of my past and wanted to cover the tattoo,” Javi exclusively told In Touch.
Javi also cleared up rumors that claim he cheated on Briana with Lauren — which started swirling after Javi and Lauren announced their pregnancy with son Eli just four months after breaking up with Bri.
“I saw Lauren for the first time in March. While the timeline is close, there is no overlapping,” Javi said. “A lot of people are ignorant and don’t know your pregnancy clock begins on the day of your last period, not the day you take a test.”
And Javi has one piece of advice for anyone thinking about getting a tattoo.
“This has nothing to do with the chess piece tattoo. This has to do with all my tattoos. I’m over them,” he said. “If I could go back I’d get them ALL removed, but — definitely do NOT get matching tattoos with girls.”
