Teen Mom 2’s Kailyn Lowry Announces That She’s Divorcing Husband Javi Marroquin
Sad news. This week, Kailyn Lowry confirmed that she’s ending her marriage to Javi Marroquin.
The Teen Mom 2 star was asked about her relationship by the Daily Mail when she was out shopping, and told them, “Yes, it’s true. We’re trying to do the best we can for our kids because they are what really matters."
Javi and Kailyn got married back in 2013, just before the birth of their son Lincoln, but we’ve seen them go through a difficult patch on the show recently during Javi’s military deployment – Javi left a few episodes in to the most recent season, meaning that the couple have been relying on FaceTime to communicate.
This update doesn’t come long after Kailyn revealed the heart-breaking news that she and Javi had lost a baby to miscarriage last year. The emotional episode saw Kailyn speak up about the grief and pain she had felt in the aftermath of the miscarriage, and how she’d felt disconnected from her husband.
“He was just a different person. He was mean to me, we weren't communicating. He shut down, it was like a light switch, everything changed.”
Javi has since apologised for the way he acted at that time. He hasn't released a statement about the split yet, but he has deleted his Twitter.
We can’t begin to imagine how tough that time must have been for Kailyn and Javi, and even though we’re gutted they’re separating, huge respect to them for doing what they need to do to be happy. Sending all the love, guys.
