In November 2021, “Teen Mom 2” alum Brooke Wehr took to Instagram to share a quote about acceptance and letting go after fiance Joby Barr’s arrest.
According to The Sun, the victim, now 18 years old, disclosed that Barr groomed her while she was a minor. The incident report, obtained by The Sun, stated that “[the student] and Coach Barr began meeting and going to Coach Barr’s residence. Once at Coach Barr’s residence they proceeded to have consensual sex, this occurred on four separate occasions.” In the report, the student stated she decided to come forward because she realized “he was grooming her into a sexual relationship and taking advantage of the situation,” the outlet reported.
On November 9, Barr pleaded not guilty at his arraignment and was released on $10,000 bond, with a trial set for January 11, 2022, Belmont County court records show. As conditions of his release Barr must submit to pretrial supervision by a probation officer, a curfew, and random drug and alcohol testing, and must not use alcohol or drugs or enter bars, have contact with convicted felons or have contact with the alleged victim, according to court records.

In a November 2021 Instagram post, Brooke shared a cryptic quote following the arrest of her fiance.
The former MTV star shared a photo of herself in front of a mirror. She captioned the photo, “Accept what IS, let go of what WAS, and have faith in what WILL BE.”
In a November Reddit thread, “Teen Mom” fans shared their thoughts on Joby’s arrest. One Reddit user wrote, “oh jeez this poor girl can’t catch a break,” referring to Brooke.

Brooke & Jeremy’s Break-Up Was Messy
Before her engagement to Joby, Brooke was in a relationship with “Teen Mom 2” star Jeremy Calvert. The two started dating in May 2015 but broke up in 2017, according to The Sun. Later that year, the couple reconciled, but the reunion didn’t last long. The Sun reported that Brooke took to Instagram to publicly accuse Jeremy of cheating a month after they got back together.
In a series of since-deleted Instagram posts, Brooke accused Jeremy of “hooking up with 1,000 other people” during their relationship, InTouch Weekly reported in 2017.
Jeremy responded to the posts with a series of Instagram posts reassuring fans he never cheated on Brooke.
