Teen Mom 2 star Javi Marroquin and his girlfriend, Lauren Comeau, have broken up after weeks of speculation. The mother-of-one confirmed the split during an emotional Instagram live on January 19.
Lauren, 29, said she was “stuck in Delaware” now that she and Javi have broken up: “I’m just here to pick up the pieces with my kid, stuck here with no family or friends.”
She found out about the cheating allegation the same night like everyone else. While wiping tears away, Lauren said she and Javi were getting ready to put a deposit down on a house the following day.
Lauren seemed to hint that Kailyn and Javi were having an affair throughout their relationship. “I’m thankful that I obviously found out, but this has been going on for three years and there’s a lot more than none of us know and only two people know,” she said. “I think there’s a lot more truth to it.”
In a statement to In Touch Weekly, Javi denied Lauren’s allegations. “While I have tried to avoid a he said/she said situation [by] staying quiet, the accusations Lauren made against me this afternoon on Instagram are false,” the father-of-two said. “My only focus right now is creating healthy co-parenting relationships with both Lauren and Kail for the sake of my boys and bettering myself.”
Lauren Previously Said Things Were Getting ‘Hard’
Since Lauren normally doesn’t show her feelings on social media, it led some of her followers to think that she was indifferent to her apparent split from Javi. But Lauren, who shares 2-year-old son Eli with Javi, said she was having a hard time.
“This week, today, tonight, has been hard,” she said on Instagram during a January 17 post. “I get so many messages daily asking how I remain so positive, truth is I don’t. I just don’t enjoy showing this side of the storm because everyone thinks they know the reality and it’s a lose-lose.”
“Just here to remind you to not compare your life to someone else’s highlight reel. Life sucks some days, isn’t fair most days, and the world is selfish,” she continued. “Just take it day by day and be kind to yourself, everyone around you and just do your damn best.”
Kailyn Claimed Javi Tried To ‘F***’ Her
Javi and Lauren likely split after Kailyn claimed that Javi tried to fuck her in a Wawa parking lot. Kailyn made the confessional while talking to a Teen Mom 2 producer because she was frustrated that Javi was being difficult about arranging a pickup spot for their 7-year-old son, Lincoln Marshall.
She later regretted making the accusation on TV and issued an apology on Twitter. “I want to publicly apologize to Lauren in regards to tonight’s episode,” she tweeted in October 2020. “She didn’t deserve the humiliation she was put through due to a situation between Javi and me.
“I’ve been in her shoes and I’ve felt that pain, however have never experienced that being exploited on TV,” she continued. “I did have a private conversation with her, but owe her a public apology as well.”
In an episode of Teen Mom 2, Kailyn talked about the private conversation with Lauren, where the Maine native told her to have a “woman to woman” conversation.
“I really did Lauren dirty, and it wasn’t even about her,” she told MTV producers. “It was, but I didn’t have to do her like that. If I was gonna say anything, I could have just texted her or called her and said something to her directly.”
