When Did Nathan Griffith and Jenelle Evans Start Dating?
After splitting from her ex Courtland Rogers, Jenelle met the model on Tinder and gave birth to Kaiser in June 2014.
By January 2015, Nathan proposed to Jenelle, but unfortunately, their romance didn’t last, as they constantly argued. By the summer of that year, the duo called off their wedding. In the years to come, Nathan and Jenelle didn’t see eye to eye as coparents, which led to a custody battle over their son.
However, the exes managed to reach a custody agreement in 2020, which the MTV reality star exclusively told In Touch about.
“I am glad both parties can settle outside of court instead of fighting” Jenelle said in October 2020. “I feel like co-parenting at such a young age is scary and hard to cope with. Not everyone is going to get along to begin with. Everyone has a little space to grow and super glad we can all be on the same page now. Kaiser is a lot more happy, and it’s a very positive change.”
What Does Nathan Griffith Do for a Living?
According to his Instagram profile, Nathan is a personal trainer in addition to being a former Marine.

Who Did Nathan Griffith Date Following His Split From Jenelle?
After he and Jenelle split, Nathan moved on with ex-girlfriend Ashley Lanhardt in 2017. However, the former Marine announced they went their separate ways in a July 2021 Instagram Live, specifying they hadn’t been together for six months.
“It sucks, but that’s reality,” he said about he and Ashley’s breakup. “I have started seeing other women and stuff like that, but it sucks.”
Afterward, Nathan reportedly moved on with Keilyn Liznel. In a since-deleted Instagram post, he gushed over her in his caption.
“How am I so lucky?!” he wrote at the time.
Since then, Nathan hasn’t shared any photos with other women. He opened up about his perspective on relationships in a March 2022 Instagram video.
“Remember, a relationship is not how much a person can give you,” he explained in the clip. “It’s how much you can give the other person. Because I promise you, the more you give to the other person, at the end of the day, if they are being an a—hole, whether it’s [the] man or woman, you know, as long as they’re treating you a certain way, you can walk from that relationship feeling that you’re OK with your decision because you gave it your all.”
Is Nathan Griffith Married?
On April 30, 2022, Nathan tied the knot with Mayra Oyola, according to online records exclusively obtained by In Touch on May 8, 2022. The wedding ceremony took place in Miami, Florida.
Fans were shocked when the former MTV alum reportedly announced via Facebook that he got married. In Touch confirmed that Nathan obtained a marriage license in Miami-Dade County on April 15. According to the online records, Jenelle’s ex and his new bride currently reside in Miami. There is little known information about Mayra except that her birthplace is listed as Argentina on the documents.
By August 2022, there would be trouble in paradise as Nathan took to his Instagram Stories to search for somewhere to stay since his wife made him feel “trapped.”
“I wanna get out of Miami and I’m in my car with all my stuff! I have nowhere to stay,” he wrote. “I’m reaching out to anyone. Can I stay with you for a couple of nights until I can figure out all of my problems!”
The former reality TV star took to his IG to give his followers an update on his situation a few hours later. “So, as I expected … no one was up to the challenge, I am desperate in need,” he continued. “People said I could stay but not tonight. I am sleeping in my car! My wife is completely psycho. I am trying to leave but no one will help a man in need.”
Oyola did not immediately respond to In Touch‘s request for comment.
However, by October, Nathan and Mayra were seemingly back on good terms.
“When your wife surprises you with lunch at your favorite place, a vape,” he gushed via his Instagram Stories on October 7. “And more than anything … a card that shows you how much she cares about you!”
What Did Nathan Say About ‘Teen Mom’ Franchise?
In September 2021, the fitness enthusiast revealed that starring on the hit reality franchise negatively impacted his personal life.
“How they wanted to portray me as a person isn’t who I really am, and it made my life so difficult because of it,” he told The Sun that month. “I lived in Myrtle Beach for seven or eight years, and I was never in trouble once before I met Jenelle Evans. And it’s not because of Jenelle Evans, it’s because reality TV puts a stigma on these celebrities.”
Nathan continued, “If MTV really wanted to help people, they should focus on the stories of the men and women overseas and what they go through at home … I also have Traumatic Brain Injury on top of PTSD.”
Why Was Nathan Griffith Arrested?
In February 2023, the former reality TV star was arrested in Palm Beach County, Florida, and charged with domestic battery, In Touch confirmed. According to a booking report obtained by In Touch, he was charged with domestic battery for strangulation.
