Here’s what you need to know:

Leah Messer & Jaylan Mobley Shared a Breakup Statement on Instagram

On October 11, the “Teen Mom” star shocked her fans by sharing a statement on her Instagram page. “While the last year has been tremendously exciting for both of us, we’ve realized that it’s best we walk separate paths,” the statement read. Mobley and Messer posted it on both of their pages at the same time.

The statement continued, “We are so grateful for the lessons, growth, and memories we’ve had in this relationship. So many of you have watched our love story unfold, and we hope that you’ll continue to watch our stories as we move forward as friends.” Messer and Mobley shared they would “forever have love and respect for each other,” and they asked “Teen Mom” fans to give them some privacy while they “refocus and transition out of this chapter together.”

The ‘Teen Mom’ Couple Had Been Looking Toward the Future

As of this writing, the last Instagram post of Messer with Mobley that is still on her page, prior to the breakup announcement, is from September 2021. That seems to indicate the “Teen Mom” star has already cleaned up her page, and Mobley appears to have already done the same. His Instagram page does not appear to have any posts including Messer up, other than a story pointing followers toward the shared breakup post.

Prior to this surprising split, “Teen Mom” fans had seen and heard quite a bit about Messer and Mobley’s plans for the future. There were baby teases and quite a few photos taken that included her daughters, as well as preliminary ideas about filming the wedding for the MTV series.

People shared that Mobley popped the question while on a trip to Costa Rica with Messer in August. She noted that her daughters already viewed Mobley “as another father figure in their lives” and had great relationships with him. Before proposing, Mobley had spent time connecting with both of Messer’s prior husbands, the fathers of her girls.

“I’m looking forward to everything that the future has in store for us — our families coming together, the kids we’ll bring into this world together, growing businesses together,” Messer shared after her engagement. The couple had dated for about a year before getting engaged. The “Teen Mom” star went official on Instagram with the relationship in September 2021, and viewers have seen the progression of the relationship in the episodes of the season currently airing.

The “Teen Mom” stars shut the comments off on their breakup Instagram announcement, so fans and other franchise stars will need to express their thoughts about the split on other social media posts or via other avenues. The post received more than 50,000 “likes” in less than an hour, signaling that many fans are eager to show the couple their support in the wake of this jaw-dropping news.
