Briana DeJesus and Javi Marroquin: Watch Them Get Matching Tattoos! Cringe Forever!

With all of the unrelenting drama their relationship caused, it's easy to forget that Briana DeJesus and Javi Marroquin only dated for a few months at the end of last year.

But it's true — after a long friendship and some heavy flirting, they officialy began dating in October, then they broke up in January.

Thanks to previews for this season of Teen Mom 2, we know that during that time, Javi was considering proposing to Briana, because that's normal.

And thanks to this one specific preview (and also photos from social media at the time), we know that the two of them got matching tattoos.

Again, because that's normal.

In the clip, which is sincerely just almost unbearable to watch, Javi is driving Briana to the tattoo shop while chatting with his brother on the phone.

"We're going to get tattoos right now," he tells him. "King and queen chess pieces."

And then, if you can even believe it, he adds "I told Bri she's gotta put my name so I know it's real but she doesn't want to."

Smart move on Bri's part, who, by the way, looks like she wants to crawl in a hole and die during this entire conversation.

Javi tells his brother that "it's gonna be lit" to make that terrible decision with his girlfriend of two days (approximately, anyway), then hangs up.

Briana asks him how long his brother's been with his wife, and Javi says they've been married five years, which for some reason is impressive to her.

She remarks on how his family "has a long history with long relationships," and Javi agrees and says that's why he values relationships so much.

"I want that," he tells her directly, and she nods but doesn't say anything.

At this point, we're basically at horror movie levels of "RUN, GIRL, RUN."

But she doesn't, and they go into the shop together, where she gets her tattoo first.

When it's done, she admires it in the mirror, and then Javi creeps over to her, looks at it, and says "Sorry, we can't break up. You're stuck with me forever, in some way."

In response, Briana makes this face:

Because who says that?! Who honestly thinks that's an OK thing to say to someone?

Probably the same person who wants his girlfriend to get his name tattooed on him after a month of dating.

Or possibly the same person who wanted his girlfriend to get his name tattooed on him, broke up with her a couple of months after that, then impregnated a new girl a couple of months after that.

It's weird. The whole thing is just very weird and uncomfortable and Javi desperately needs to learn how to relax a little bit in relationships.

Watch him and try not to get too creeped out in the video below:

Briana DeJesus: Is She Neglecting Her Daughter?!

Ever since Briana DeJesus joined the cast of Teen Mom 2, her storyline has been more about relationships than actually being a mom.

Last season, we saw her dealing with Luis Miguel, a guy who impregnated her after a hookup.

They tried to give dating a go, but it didn't work out, and things got so messy between them that at one point Briana was even contemplating placing their child for adoption.

We also saw her struggle to coparent with Devoin Austin, the father of her older daughter, Nova.

He wanted to spend more time with Nova, but Briana didn't feel comfortable with it, and then Briana's mother, Roxanne, climbed on a table in a restaurant to berate him.

It was a lot to take in, to say the least.

This season, Luis seems to be nearly completely out of the picture, and Devoin hasn't been able to step up, either.

Or at least, that seems to be the case — the vast, vast majority of Briana's story this season has been her relationship with Javi Marroquin and her feud with Kailyn Lowry.


The point of all this is to say that unlike some of the other moms, Briana's children haven't really been a focus on the show, not really.

Until now, that is.

In this heartbreaking sneak peek for tonight's new episode, Briana's finished her maternity leave and is back at her day job, so her sister and her mother are home caring for her children.

Brittany tends to baby Stella while Roxanne sits down with Nova to do some schoolwork, and she decides to have a conversation about their home life, too.

"Hey, let me ask you something," she says. "You excited about your mom going back to work?"

Nova nods, but when Roxanne asks her if she'll miss her, she says no.

And when she asks her why, she says "Because she doesn't like taking care of me, she likes taking care of Stella."

"You think she likes to take care of Stella?" Roxanne asks. "But wait wait wait wait wait, you know why she takes care of Stella, right?"

Nova says that she knows Stella is a baby, and Roxanne tells her that she still takes care of her anyway, and so does Grandma and Ti Ti.

"But Ti Ti doesn't because she's too lazy," Nova whispers as Brittany drinks some juice in the background.

"A little bit," she acknowledges, "but I take care of you, right? So you have a lot of us taking care of you."

Unfortunately, Nova doesn't seem too convinced.

Obviously, this is totally normal — Briana's not doing anything wrong here.

Nova is feeling a little jealous of her baby sister, but Briana has to give her a different kind of attention, and good on her for not quitting her job even though she's back on MTV.

Still, this is really sad to see. Nova is so sweet, so to see her hurting is tough.

Hopefully when we see the full episode, Briana will help to make her feel a little better with all the changes going on in their family.

In the meantime, let poor little Nova break your heart, too, by watching the clip below:

Briana DeJesus: ALSO Pregnant with Javi Marroquin’s Baby?!

A lot of times in the Teen Mom universe, when it rains, it pours.

Which is to say that when it comes to this delightfully trashy reality show, when the drama happens, it really happens.

And just in case you’re not picking up what we’re putting down right now, we’re saying there’s a great big mess going on right now.

OK, so let’s see … right now, we have the divorce rumors about Jenelle Evans and David Eason, the worrisome lack of updates on Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer.

Tyler Baltierra has been scaring us all with his depressing poetry, we can’t forget that.

Then we have the situation with Kailyn Lowry, Javi Marroquin, and Briana DeJesus.

And it’s a pretty big situation.

As you know, Javi and Briana dated for a few months around the end of last year — about a year after Kailyn and Javi’s divorce was finalized.

There was a little confusion in the beginning of Briana’s thing with Javi, and that led to some intense feuding between Briana and Kailyn.

Kailyn didn’t think that Briana should have been dating him in the first place because they work together, Briana didn’t appreciate Kailyn trying to get in her business.

It was a lot.

They’ve been bickering for months, but things got physical a couple of weeks ago at the filming of the Teen Mom 2 reunion show.

Or, well, they almost did — when Kailyn propositioned Briana for a fight the first time, there were tons of security guards around so it didn’t make sense.

Then when Briana tried to rush the stage to attack Kailyn, she tripped and fell before being restrained.

We heard her sister, Brittany, did manage to get in a little bit of hair-pulling, but that’s about it.

It’s kind of weird that the two ladies are still in such a bad place when Javi isn’t even dating either of them anymore, right?

But then again, we know now that Javi tried to get back with Kailyn after splitting with Briana, so maybe things are even messier than we realize.

Considering that Javi impregnated another girl, Lauren Comeau, approximately three seconds after dropping things with them, that’s a distinct possibility.

Yep, so Javi and Briana broke up in January, he and Kailyn did some stuff shortly after that, he officially got with Lauren in March, and now she’s pregnant and already has a visible bump.

Like we said, this is a lot.

And we’re not even to the new story yet!

See, right now a whole, whole lot of people are thinking that Briana might actually be pregnant with her third child.

Last week, she tweeted “My life literally just took a turn just now and I’m like uhhhhhhhh what now.”

She then added “And no I’m not pregnant lol,” but you know nobody believes her.

“Preggers,” one of her followers insisted.

Another told her “Girl your uterus hasn’t even snapped back from the last kid yet,” which, honestly, is accurate.

And then someone joked “Javi having 2 babies now” … and can you imagine?!

Is there any concrete evidence that Briana is pregnant with Javi’s baby?


But are these people ridiculous enough that she could be pregnant with his baby?

Absolutely, no doubt about it.

We’ll keep an eye on Briana to see if she reveals what it is that caused her her life to take such a turn, and on Javi, just in case he has another maternity photo shoot up his sleeve.

In the meantime … what else could she mean with that cryptic little message?


Briana DeJesus Thinks Javi Maybe Cheated on Her

The bombshell has been dropped.

But the ramifications are still being felt.

With Javi Marroquin expecting his second child at some point this year or early next year, many fans out there are sending the Teen Mom 2 star their best wishes.

But others are craning their necks and looking toward Briana DeJesus.

Considering the timing of her relationship with Javi, combined with the timing of he and Lauren Comeau getting back together, one obvious questions remains:

Did Marroquin cheat on DeJesus with Comeau?

Briana has been asked this question, among others, by Radar Online.

Scroll down for her response…

1. Their Flame Burned Fast and Strong

Javi and briana
Marroquin and DeJesus dated for just a few months, from the end of 2017 through the very beginning of 2018. They seemed to split up on mostly amicable terms.

2. But What Happened?

Javi briana
Why did the relationship end? We’ve never gotten an exact answer, with Briana only giving the vaguest of quotes at the time of the split.

3. It Was Just This Simple, Apparently:

Briana and javi make it official
“Javi and I are not together anymore,” Briana told Blasting News in January. “Our future just doesn’t line up. He doesn’t want me to get my surgery for a breast lift, lipo, and tummy tuck … because it’ll look bad on his name at work. Also, I don’t plan on moving in with him in the summer, and for these reasons, he broke up with me.”

4. But Was It Really That Simple?

Javi and briana
Javi got back together with Comeau, who is also dated last summer, just several weeks after breaking up with Briana. That’s when they got back together IN PUBLIC, at least.

5. In Private?

Briana with javi on instagram
Had they started bumping proverbial uglies while Javi was also giving it to DeJesus? The timeline may add up, now that Lauren is expecting a baby with Marroquin.

6. Briana Reacts!

This is what she told Us Weekly upon first learning Javi was going to be a father again: “I’m happy for them. I wish them nothing but the best.”

Kailyn Lowry: Briana DeJesus Needs Her Ass Kicked!

During the most recent Teen Mom 2 reunion show, Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus got into a scuffle.

In fact, they threw down (or attempted to) on two separate occasions, and the only reason neither girl left on a stretcher is that they were closely monitored by security guards;

The situation was so bad that Chelsea Houska refused to return to the set the following day because she was concerned about the possibility of further violence.

Now, Kailyn is telling her side of the story for the first time, and the woman definitely deserves points for honesty …

1. Spilling the Tea

Kail has a reputation for being 100 percent candid, but fans were still surprised and impressed by how forthcoming she was when discussing the fight on her Coffee Convos podcast this week.

2. Reunion Throwdown

Kailyn lowry looks sad
Kail and Briana have never gotten along, but their rivalry reached new heights at last month’s reunion taping.

3. A Two-Round Bout

Briana confronts kail
On-set witnesses say Kail and Briana went after each other on two separate occasions, but security guards were able to intervene both times.

4. An Off-Camera Scuffle

The co-stars first locked horns backstage and off-camera when Kail asked Briana to sit down with her and work out their differences. Needless to say, that didn’t work out …

5. Front Row Seats

The second bout had an audience, as Briana went after Kail on set, in full view of the entire cast and an MTV camera crew.

6. Opening Up

Needless to say, the reunion special should be a doozy, but to hold us over until then, we have Kail’s account of what happened. The TM2 fan favorite opened up while discussing the fight with Lindsie Chrisley this week …

Javi Marroquin: Did He Impregnate Lauren Comeau While Still Dating Briana DeJesus?!

Earlier today, we reported on the exciting news that Lauren Comeau is pregnant with Javi Marroquin's baby.

Javi and Lauren first started dating in 2017, but they broke up a few weeks into their relationship and only reconciled in March of this year.

In between, Javi's love life was as hectic as ever, of course.

So perhaps it's not surprising that many fans believe there's considerable overlap between Lauren's pregnancy and Javi's most recent romance.

Join us as we do some amateur sleuthing in order to get to the bottom of this matter.

1. Javi and Lauren’s Big Announcement

Javi and laurens big announcement
Javi and Lauren announced their big news on social media today. Most fans offered words of congratulations, but some felt the need to rain on the couple’s parade.

2. Something Amiss?

The announcement photo
This is social media, of course, the place where body-shaming trolls come to mingle with their own, so naturally, many saw fit to pick apart Lauren’s appearance.

3. The Origin

The origin
Things started off innocently enough with well-known Twitter personality Ms Anon Mafioso observing that Lauren appears to be 5-6 months along.

4. A Fair Assessment

Javi marroquin and lauren comeau selfie
Every pregnancy is different, and only Lauren and her doctor really know how far along she is, and yada, yada, yada — but Lauren has been with a reality star for long enough that she surely anticipated this sort of speculation.

5. The Implication

Javi marroquin and briana dejesus
Of course, if Lauren is six months along, that would mean that Javi got her pregnant whil he was still dating Briana DeJesus.

6. Triple Dipping?

Kailyn lowry and javi marroquin kiss
And that would be especially egregious since Javi was in the midst of a reconciliation with Kailyn Lowry when he got back together with Lauren!

Briana DeJesus Reacts to Javi Marroquin Baby Bombshell


Javi Marroquin and Lauren Comeau dropped a gigantic bombshell on the Internet this week, revealing that the couple is expecting its first child together some time in 2018.

The shocking news comes on the heels of MTV airing one Teen Mom 2 episode after another that features Javi right smack dab in the middle of a feud between ex-wife Kailyn Lowry and ex-girlfriend Briana DeJesus.

But it's now clear that Marroquin has moved past those women and set his sights on a future with Comeau, who he first dated in the summer of 2017 before the pair broke up and got back together this spring.

For good this time, we hope, for the sake of his impending child.

How have Kailyn and Briana reacted to Comeau's pregnancy?

Scroll down to find out!

1. It Really is True

The announcement photo
Javi and Lauren shared this photo on Facebook, which includes a snapshot of the latter’s sonogram, along with Marroquin’s four-year old son, Lincoln. Pretty darn cute, huh?

2. Javi is Pretty Psyched, Too

“A baby is a blessing and I am ecstatic for the future,” wrote Marroquin along with that previous photo, adding of his son and lover: “Lincoln is happy, I’m happy, and Lauren is happy.”

3. A Time to Reflect

Added Javi: “Been kinda quiet lately for many reasons. I was sad I couldn’t share the good news because I was afraid of what people would say. The amount of love I’ve received is so overwhelming and so appreciated. I realized no negative comment will take this moment away from us.”

4. Farewell for Now

“Gonna go on a little hiatus from social media to take all this in and enjoy it with my family and loved ones,” continued the Teen Mom veteran, concluding: “For those sending love, thank you! We appreciate it. And to you @lauren3elizabeth thank you for blessing me with another child. We are gonna be amazing parents together.”

5. Kailyn Reacts!

Lowry was married to Javi and shares custody of little Lincoln with him. This is what she said in response to Comeau’s pregnancy: “I knew. I wish them the best.”

6. That Was It?

Yes. What else was she going to say? (We do wonder for how long she has known, however.)

Briana DeJesus: I Quit Teen Mom 2 Because of Kailyn Lowry!

In some ways, the ladies of Teen Mom 2 are like method actors or professional wrestlers.

Once they decide on a persona that works for them, they never break character.

Some of the moms present their authentic selves to the world, while others crank the drama up to 11 even when the cameras aren't rolling.

There's nothing wrong with that, of course.

We're sure MTV appreciates that level of devotion, and fans have fun trying to determine who's being "real," and who's merely displaying a Daniel Day-Lewis-like commitment to the art of drama.

Take the news that Briana DeJesus has quit Teen Mom 2, for example.

Is it legit, or — as so many believe — is she just having some fun with fans?

Here's what we know so far:

1. One Bonkers Reunion

Briana confronts kail
This year’s reunion show was taped in NYC over the weekend, and as usual, it was a complete sh-tshow. In fact, Briana says TM2 as we know it is officially dunz-o.

2. Her Mortal Enemy

Kail has no sh ts to give
Briana clashed with Kail in a big way. The co-stars almost came to blows on two separate occasions but were subdued by security guards both times.

3. Mafia Rules

Briana d pic
Briana reportedly told Kail that she was pissed because Lowry broke the rules of engagement by going after her kids. Kail denied it, but Bri pressed on with that complaint.

4. Yeah, Well…

Jenelle evans and briana dejesus
“Briana told Kail that she only did it because Kail talks about her kids, which Kail denied,” a source told The Ashley’s Reality Roundup. “Briana then said something like ‘That may be true but you do talk about Jenelle [Evans]’ kids, and that’s not right either.”

5. Clear Instructions

Kail pic
Kail didn’t deny involving Jenelle’s kids in their feud, but she made it clear she was no longer interested in debating the matter. “That has nothing to do with you,” Lowry reportedly said. “Get up now because I’m going to beat your ass.”

6. Bluff Called

Briana drama
Bri says she knew from the start that Kail didn’t really want to fight. “Kail knew what she was doing,” Briana told The Ashley. “In that meeting alone she could have jumped across the table because we were at arm’s reach but she decided to walk around it where all the guards were.” Of course, that wasn’t the end of the weekend’s drama …

Briana DeJesus: FIRED from Teen Mom 2 After Kailyn Lowry Fight?!

By now, those of us who care about Teen Mom news have definitely heard all about what went down at the taping of the Teen Mom 2 reunion last weekend.

Briana DeJesus and Kailyn Lowry nearly came to blows after months and months of feuding, lots of cast members got upset over the violence and left the set …

Lots and lots of bad stuff, basically.

But according to a new report from The Ashley's Reality Roundup, things were even crazier than we've heard so far.

Like, genuinely, truly crazy.

1. Oh, Ladies …

Briana dejesus up close
Where to start … OK, so Briana and Kailyn pretty much hate each other, right? They were never friends, but they started becoming enemies when Briana started getting romantic with Kailyn’s ex-husband, Javi.

2. Drama Drama Drama

Kailyn lowry looks sad
The issue, at least in the beginning, was that Kailyn was upset that Briana was going on vacation with Javi and two of her sons and no one had told her about it. She also believed that Briana shouldn’t have gotten with Javi in the first place since they’re technically co-workers, and in doing so, Briana broke the sacred “girl code.”

3. What Girl Code?

Briana dejesus on twitter
Briana has said that no girl code was broken in this situation, because it’s not like she and Kailyn were ever friends, and they don’t even really work together, they just happen to appear on the same reality show. They really only ever interact once or twice a year when MTV gathers the whole cast together for specials.

4. Last Year’s Reunion

Kailyns not having it
It was in August when this mess started, but in October at the taping of last season’s reunion, things came to a head. Briana and Javi still weren’t officially dating then, but she and Kailyn got into several arguments anyway.

5. … But Why?

Briana confronts kail
At one point during filming, Briana and Kailyn were getting their hair and makeup done in the same room and they started discussing their issues, but things got tense real quick. Briana told Kail she was just “salty because Javi’s moved on,” but she denied it. Things got so heated that Briana felt the need to call Javi to come diffuse the situation.

6. Too Much

Kail has no sh ts to give
They weren’t able to work things out, obviously. Briana’s sister, Brittany, almost went after Kail, and one of Kail’s friends almost got into a fight with Briana and Brittany.

Javi Marroquin Confirms New Romance, Admits He Still Isn’t Over Briana DeJesus

Over the past few days, nearly every member of the Teen Mom 2 cast hasn’t had to worry about getting a sunburn.

This is because they’ve had shade hurled at them from practically every direction.

Kailyn Lowry is feuding with Briana DeJesus. Chelsea Houska is storming off reunion sets. Jenelle Evans isn’t showing up for tapings.

Even by the scandalous standards of this MTV series, it’s been quite a wild week.

But not for Javi Marroquin!

Lowry’s baby daddy and Briana’s ex-boyfriend has been pretty darn quiet while chaos breaks out all around him, despite the fact that Kailyn and Briana are basically at odds over him.

(For the record: Javi got divorced from Kailyn in 2016. He then dated DeJesus for a few months toward the end of 2017.

Sources now claim that Lowry admitted at this past weekend’s Teen Mom 2 reunion that she and Javi hooked up shortly after his romance with Briana ended.)

Indeed, while most of the women on Teen Mom 2 are at each other’s throats right now, Javi has been sort of sitting back and staying out of it.

Until, that is, he sat down with MTV on Monday night as part of the Teen Mom 2 after-show.

He was asked in this Q&A about yet another romance, his latest, the one that started with yet another ex-girlfriend just a couple months ago.

Is he really back together with Lauren Comeau?


For the first time in public, Marroquin has acknowledged this relationship.

“Me and Lauren dated last summer, but it was just bad timing and we both had a lot going on,” Marroquin revealed, adding:

“And then we just rekindled, she texted me, and we were talking for a little bit. Then we hung out and the chemistry was still there, and now we’re together.”

Why would Comeau take Javi back, following chatter last year that he cheated on her?

We can’t say. But he says it won’t happen again.

When the MTV host mentioned last night that Marroquin moves quickly from relationship to relationship, the reality star didn’t dispute this assessment.

“I’m trying to get over the ex,” he said rather candidly.

We assume this was a reference to DeJesus, only because he and Lowry split such a long time ago.

It was seen as a pretty big deal back when Briana and Javi started dating, but the romance didn’t last long.

It concluded in January; not on the worst terms of all-time, but not on the most amicable, either.

“Javi and I are not together anymore,” DeJesus told Blasting News at the time, adding:

“Our future just doesn’t line up. He doesn’t want me to get my surgery for a breast lift, lipo, and tummy tuck because it’ll look bad on his name at work.

“Also, I don’t plan on moving in with him in the summer and for these reasons, he broke up with me.”

Added Marroquin several weeks ago, following this Briana break-up:

“Unfortunately it didn’t work out for us. Bri is an amazing person with the biggest heart I’ve ever got to hold. Everything she goes through and she’s still selfless and does her best to please others.

“She’s got a bright future and she’ll make any guy feel special.”

Wow, huh?

Should Lauren be a little jealous here?

Maybe. But things appear pretty serious between Javi and Comeau, considering they actually went on vacation with the former’s son.

Will they actually get married and buy a house together, as Briana claims Javi wanted to do with her?

Only time will tell.
