Briana DeJesus has a new ring on her finger.
Because she's found true love and is engaged? Heck no.
It's because she has made a promise to herself, at the expense of ex-boyfriend Javi Marroquin, and she wants a piece of jewelry to mark the occasion.
Meaning what, exactly? That's a fair question.
Scroll down for the answer…
1. A Ring Was Once The Thing
As a quick refresher, remember: Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus dated for a few months, toward the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018. He even asked her to marry him!
2. He Did?
Yes, according to a Teen Mom 2 episode that aired this summer. The installment alleged that DeJesus was going to be deployed by the Air Force and wanted to lock Briana down before leaving.
3. Look! We Told You He Got Her a Ring!
Marroquin has made it sound like a proposal never took place, but he hasn’t denied that the photo above is of a ring he purchased for DeJesus.
4. Here. Just Take It!
DeJesus has said Javi just shoved the ring in her face that never even popped the question, really. “It wasn’t my ideal proposal, and I wasn’t going to accept the ring,” DeJesus explained very simply to a friend.
5. What Was the Problem?
“He wants to marry me, he wants me to have his children, he wants me to move in with him, there’s a lot of things that he wants,” Briana said to her sister. “I told him, ‘We have some time to think about it, we don’t have to rush.'” In other words: The two just wanted different things.
6. Okay. So Why is Briana Shading Marroquin Now?
We have a theory (keep scrolling!), but first a rundown of the shade: On Snapchat, Briana posted a photo of a different ring on her finger.
