“I turned him down!” Kail tweeted way back in 2012. “Anyway, from there he came into Buckle again and we started forming a friendship via Twitter and Buckle visits. Eventually, I gave him my number.”
4. A Change of Heart
Kail eventually gave in, and she and Javi began formally dating in January of 2012.
5. Mystery Man
Kail has claimed that Javi saw her as a ticket to fame in the early days of their relationship. If that was the case, he quickly got what he was after. Photos of Kail and Javi kissing appeared in the Daily Mail shortly after they began dating. The caption identified Javi as Kail’s “mystery man.”
