Briana DeJesus Gifts Self a Ring, Trashes Javi Marroquin

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?

Javi marroquin and briana dejesus on instagram
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.

Briana DeJesus Opens Up About Javi, Jenelle Evans, And That Kiss With Her Mom

When Teen Mom 2 producers made the decision to add Briana DeJesus to the cast of their wildly popular series, fans weren't quite sure what to expect.

Briana was one of the stars of the short-lived Teen Mom 3, but it had been four years since she appeared on camera.

As it turns out, however, the masterminds behind the franchise knew exactly what they were doing.

In her short time as part of the cast, Briana has helped raise the drama on TM2 to previously unimaginable heights.

Whether it's her ongoing feud with Kailyn Lowry or her rocky relationship with Javi Marroquin, Briana consistently gives fans something to talk about.

And now, she's talking with The Hollywood Gossip about some of the most memorable moments from the show's wildest season to date.

1. Briana Drama

Shortly after joining the cast, Briana distinguished herself as one of the most indispensable members of the Teen Mom 2 family. Fans learned early on that Bri was not one to back down from a conflict — or shy away from a little drama.

2. Delivering the Goods

This season alone, Briana got out of a relationship with one of her castmates’ exes, went under the knife for plastic surgery, and ignited the most memorable feud in the show’s history.

3. Spilling the Tea

Bri recently spoke with The Hollywood Gossip and opened up about her feelings on her love life, her castmates, and this rollercoaster of a season.

4. Surgical Summer

As documented on recent episodes, Briana underwent a cosmetic procedure in Miami last year, and the situation tore at the fabric of her relationship with Javi Marroquin.

5. Nurse Dre

Javi lost it upon realizing that Bri would be nursed back to health by her ex-boyfriend, Dre, but DeJesus says that was a complete overreaction.

6. Forget About Dre

“I definitely think Javi overreacted because Dre is just a friend, nothing more,” Briana tells THG. “That’s all it is — friendship. There is nothing romantic there.”

Javi Marroquin Baby Mama: Will She Appear on Teen Mom 2?

Lauren Comeau is Javi Marroquin’s girlfriend, baby mama and, due to a recent move, also his roommate.

But will she also be his co-star?

That is, will Comeau join the cast of Teen Mom 2 next season?

This is a reasonable question, based on all the ways described above that Comeau now fits into Javi’s life.

It would certainly be true to the MTV program for Lauren slide right into future Teen Mom 2 episodes, likely feuding with Briana DeJesus and Kailyn Lowry, both of whom have ridden Marroquin raw in the not-too-distant past.

However, Marroquin has some bad news for viewers anxious to witness the aforementioned feuds:

They won’t be happening. Comeau will NOT be a part of this franchise moving forward.

“She doesn’t want to be on camera,” Javi told Radar Online in a recent chat, explaining that Comeau already “deals with a lot of the social media extent of it.”

We think he’s trying to say there that Comeau has been dealing with some online harassment and has no interest in inevitably bringing on more of it by appearing on television.

Can you blame her?

Marroquin has opened up a lot of late about both Comeau and their impending child.

Most excitedly of all, he and Lauren have revealed to the world that they’re having a baby boy.

Yet while many Instagram followers have sent well wishes to the couple after learning this news, Marroquin tells Radar that Kailyn “did not congratulate” the pair after its child’s gender was announced.

(Editor’s Note: Why would she? Lowry has already said she’s happy for Javi and Lauren; plus, isn’t congratulating a couple on the gender of a baby sort of weird?

There are only two possibilities at play. Is one of them more worthy of praise or props than the other?)

Marroquin did draw some heat after this week’s episode of Teen Mom 2 aired.

Speaking to DeJesus, his recent ex-girlfriend, Javi appeared to be referring to Comeau when saying he “has someone [who] will move to Dover.”

But he added:

“If I wanted to fill that void, I can. But I’m not settling. I’m here for you… no one makes me feel like you make me feel.”

This episode was filmed months ago, of course, but Javi doesn’t sound overly pumped to be with Comeau based on these quotes, does he?

He met Lauren at a wedding in July of 2017 and briefly dated her before, allegedly, cheating.

Typical Javi, right?

But he also gushed openly about Comeau shortly after they split last year, even dropping the L-Word at one point when saying he hopes they have a future.

And now they do!

And it includes a baby!

We wish them luck with it.

We’re guessing they may need it.


Javi Marroquin to Briana DeJesus: You Betrayed Me … But Let’s Get Back Together!

If you watched last night's episode of Teen Mom 2, you may have come away from it feeling that the relationship between Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus was even more unstable and unhealthy than you'd previously thought.

You weren't alone on that.

As far as we can, tell it was nothing but drama with these two from the very start, and last night's absurdity basically confirmed that they only dated because of their shared desire to seek revenge on Kailyn Lowry.

For some reason, Briana's plastic surgery was the issue that put this relationship to the test, and it was flat-out bizarre to see the whole thing unravel on camera.

Here's a rundown of how it all played out:

1. Better Days

Javi marroquin and briana dejesus
We suppose there might have been a time when Javi and Briana were actually happy together. We just didn’t see any of it.

2. Surgical Summer

Javi and briana all smiles
The issue that drove Javi and Briana apart was her trip to Miami to undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure.

3. Make Up Your Mind!

At first, Javi was mad that Briana wanted to get more surgery. Then he was mad that he wouldn’t be the one to help nurse her back to health after the procedure.

4. Forgot About Dre

Briana de jesus pic
Javi pretty much lost his mind upon learning that Bri planned to have her ex-boyfriend Dre take care of her after her surgery.

5. Playing the Game

Briana on teen mom
To be fair, Briana seemed to choose Dre for the job primarily because she knew it would piss Javi off, but his reaction was still hilariously over-blown.

6. A Surprise Visit

Javi showed up unexpectedly just prior to Briana’s surgery and spoke of her decision to summon Dre in hilariously overblown terms.

Javi Marroquin Moves in Lauren Comeau: Take THAT, Briana DeJesus!

Is anyone else super uncomfortable with how Javi Marroquin has been behaving lately?

Well, lately, for the entire time he’s been on Teen Mom 2, either one.

There’s just something that’s so questionable about the way he went from wanting to marry Briana DeJesus to hooking up with Kailyn Lowry to knocking up Lauren Comeau in the span of a few months.

And honestly, “a few months” is pretty generous.

Like, let’s break this down: Javi and Briana broke up in January, right?

On last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, we saw him tell her that if she didn’t want to move to Delaware to be with him, then Lauren would — and honestly, who says that to someone?

What did he think would happen?

Did he think that Briana would trip all over herself to be the lucky girl to leave her entire life behind to move in with a guy she’d been dating for a handful of months?

Did he think that threatening to move Lauren in would get her to change her mind about marrying him?

It was a super weird moment that we have to imagine Lauren wasn’t too happy to see, but let’s carry on.

So Briana and Javi broke up in January, and shortly after that, he started hooking up with Kailyn for a little while.

The official story is that he began dating Lauren again in March, but we’re not too sure about that — she look very, very pregnant right now, and if he’s had her on the back burner that long …

The whole thing is just a little too bizarre for our tastes, and it definitely makes us think less of Javi “please someone marry me and give me so many children and make my fairy tale come true” Marroquin.

But, as he reveals in a new interview with Radar Online, the marriage part isn’t happening.

At least not right now.

“Definitely in the future I will propose,” he explains. “The focus is on the baby first.”

So that’s good, isn’t it?

It certainly seems like they rushed into having a baby together, so at least they’re not rushing into another huge move.

And speaking of huge moves, Javi also says that he and Lauren are no longer long distance!

“She’s officially moved into my house,” he tells the website. “We got a new place and we’ll be moving there in two weeks.”

“It’s nice to have her here. We’ve been traveling non-stop so it’s nice that she doesn’t have to travel.”

It’s not only nice for Javi and Lauren, it’s also nice for Lincoln, Javi’s son with Kailyn — Javi says that she’s a “fantastic” stepmother already.

“She’s really good to Lincoln,” he gushes. “He loves her and he asks about her all the time. He’s happy she’s here permanently.”

And just in case you thought he was done hyping this whole thing up, think again — he also says that they were excited to learn they’re expecting a boy!

“I had a feeling it was going to be a boy,” he admitted. “I’m super excited for a boy. They’re super easy.”

That’s sweet and all, and we’re glad that he seems so genuinely pumped about this whole thing.

But can Briana please comment on this already?

Because after everything we know now, we’re dying to hear what she has to say about Javi’s brand new fairy tale.


Lauren Comeau and Javi Marroquin: We’re Having A…

Lauren Comeau and Javi Marroquin are expecting a baby.

This much we know to be true.

The couple made the bombshell announcement on May 30, 2018, stunning Teen Mom 2 fans and critics alike.

While we continue to come to terms with this impending arrival, Comeau and Marroquin have now given readers something else with which they'll need to grapple:

The gender of this child.

Will it be a boy or a girl?

The star held a gender reveal party in mid-July and you can scroll down to learn what they confirmed during it. Do so now!

1. Full Speed Ahead!

2. Are They Also Engaged?

This is also a question the Internet is asking after Comeau was seemingly spotted with a diamond ring on her finger. It would make sense for Javi to propose, right?

Javi Marroquin: ENGAGED to Lauren Comeau?!?

Javi Marroquin and Lauren Comeau are expecting a baby, this much we know for certain.

The couple confirmed this stunning news in late May.

The couple did NOT, however, state at this time that they were going to get married in light of this development.

But now astute Instagram users have a reason to think things may have changed between the Teen Mom 2 star and his girlfriend.

For what reason? Why is this engagement rumor now making the round?

Scroll down to find out!

1. The Major Announcement:

The announcement photo
This is what Marroquin wrote as a caption to the photo above in May 2018: “A baby is a blessing and I am ecstatic for the future. Lincoln is happy, I’m happy, and Lauren is happy. Gonna go on a little hiatus from social media to take all this in and enjoy it with my family and loved ones. 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.”

2. Wait… WHAT?!?

Teen Mom 2 fans were stunned by this reveal, considering Javi had just recently split from fellow MTV cast members Briana DeJesus.

3. And What About Kailyn?

Javi and kail image split
Ah, right: Javi has also remained close enough to ex-wife Kailyn Lowry that the two hooked up at some point again in early 2018, making it even more shocking that he was having a baby with someone else.

4. Moving Forward with Lauren

Javi has made it clear on social media that he has moved on from the aforementioned Teen Moms and is now focused on Comeau, who he met back in the summer of 2017. “Excited about this journey with you @lauren3elizabeth,” Marroquin wrote on Instagram.

5. How Forward is He Moving?!?

Kailyn Lowry Sticks It to Briana DeJesus: Javi Wants Me Back!

The feud between Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus is unlike most reality TV beefs, as it's played out mostly as a kind of cold war.

Kail and Bri only come face-to-face at the annual Teen Mom 2 reunion show, and as a result, their shots at one another are mostly passive aggressive.

And the main weapon in this ongoing conflict is the affection of their mutual ex, Javi Marroquin.

These days, Javi is expecting a child with Lauren Comeau, but at the time that last night's TM2 was filmed, it was anyone's guess as to who he would wind up with.

Kail and Bri both still had Javi on their minds — but is it because they had feelings for him, or because they each hoped to score points against their biggest rival?

You be the judge:

1. Off and On

Kailyn lowry and javi marroquin kiss
Kail and Javi ended their marriage back in 2016, but they’ve been open about the fact that they’ve both felt strong attractions to one another in the years since.

2. Tell Us Something We DON’T Know

Kailyn lowry and javi marroquin
Fans weren’t exactly stunned by the revelation on last night’s Teen Mom 2 that Javi and Kailyn hooked — but they may have been surprised by the timeline.

3. Dropping a Bombshell

Classic kailyn
Kailyn met up with her longtime friend Leah Messer in Atlanta in order to record an episode of her Coffee Convos podcast. But the most interesting part of the conversation took place before the official interview began.

4. A Common Bond

Kailyn lowry and leah messer
“I think my relationship with Javi is very similar to your relationship with Jeremy, where it’s very different than people ever imagine it to be,” Lowry told Leah, referring to Messer’s complex relationship with ex-husband Jeremy Calvert.

5. Secret’s Out

Kailyn lowry and javi marroquin
Kailyn went on to reveal that Javi has made several attempts to rekindle their romance — but remains strangely hesitant to admit on camera that he wants to get back together.

6. Calling Him Out

“Javi won’t ever admit it on camera, but just know that man tries to get back with me on a regular basis,” she told Leah.

Briana DeJesus to Javi Marroquin: Your Baby Mama is a “B-tch!”

On this past Monday night's episode of Teen Mom 2, Javi Marroquin proposed to Briana DeJesus and she said no.

Or so the network would like us to believe.

Viewers never actually witnessed the proposal, which allegedly took place several months ago, back when this installment was filmed and Javi and Briana were a semi-serious couple.

On social media shortly after the episode aired, Javi expressed confusion over what supposedly went down between him and Briana, while DeJesus cursed off her ex and insulted his new baby mama, Lauren Comeau.

It's a lot to take in, consider and comprehend.

Scroll down and we'll explain everything…

1. What Allegedly Transpired?

Javi and briana
Marroquin thought he was going to be deployed on this Teen Mom 2 episode, so he did buy an engagement ring and did confere with his sister about proposing. We saw those events take place.

2. We Mean, Look: Here’s the Ring

Javi ring
Javi doesn’t deny having bought the rock. He willfully pulled it out in front of the camera.

3. So… How Did the Proposal Go?

Javi briana
That’s the thing: it was NOT shown on air. Weird, right? We simply heard Briana talking about it to loved ones, saying it lacked pomp, circumstance, romance, flowers, balloons…. heck, even an actual question.

4. Come On! Just Take It!

Briana eye roll
Briana told her sister that Javi showed her the diamond ring and said “here.” This was how he asked (or demanded?) her hand in marriage; again, ACCORDING TO BRIANA.

5. What Did She Say in Response?

Briana and javi make it official
Heck no, dude! Basically, that is. More or less. “It wasn’t my ideal proposal, and I wasn’t going to accept the ring,” DeJesus said to a friend, also telling her sister of Javi: “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. I told him, ‘We have some time to think about it, we don’t have to rush.'”

6. More from Briana

Javi and briana all smiles
“I don’t know why he wants to propose right now,” she said in front of the camera this week. “We’ve had a conversation about what we want for our lives, like what we want for the future, but it wasn’t like I want to get married with you, I want to have your kids right now. We spoke about it like, ‘Yeah, maybe one day.’ We’ve only been together for a few months, so it’s super fast.”

Javi Marroquin Proposes to Briana, Gets Brutally Rejected


This is about to get very awkward.

On the June 25, 2018 episode of Teen Mom 2, Javi Marroquin proposed to Briana DeJesus.

This is especially weird to read right now, considering Javi is expecting a baby with Lauren Comeau and his relationship with Briana has been over for months.

But the installment was filmed a long time ago and it's worth revisiting exactly how this shocking proposal came to be.

Note that we wrote shocking and not romantic because… well… you're about to find out why. This may not have been Javi's finest moment.

Scroll down for a recap of these unexpected events…

1. What Is It About This Guy?!?

Javi marroquin turns serious
We don’t know if it says more about Javi or the women he chooses, but the dude has slept with Briana, Kailyn Lowry AND Comeau over the course of about six months. (Some) women just can’t resist him for some reason.

2. RIP, Javi and Briana

Javi and briana all smiles
Their relationship burned hard and bright for a few months toward the end of 2017, but then it fizzled out. Briana has hinted that Javi wanted another kid, which was never on her mind, and has also said she never would have considered moving to his home state of Delaware.

3. But Wait a Second…

Briana and javi make it official
… let’s go back in time. Marroquin and DeJesus have been hot and heavy for the duration of this new Teen Mom 2 season, culiminating in a proposal that no one really saw coming this past Monday evening.

4. Check Out This Rock!

Javi ring
Ahead of possibly being deployed by the Air Force, Javi bought an engagement for his short-time girlfriend, telling his sister, who said it was too soon to pop the question.

5. A Surprise, Ruined

Javi briana
On this new episode, Javi asked for the blessing of Briana’s mother, Roxanne, which was guess was a noble and nice thing for him to do. But it backfired on him.

6. In What Way?

Javi and briana
In this way: Roxanne told her daughter of Marroquin’s plans! She then asked Briana if she would say yes, to which DeJesus replied “I don’t know” and then simply added “it’s nobody’s business really.” (NOTE: This is not true, Bri. You literally said this in front of MTV cameras. It’s the business of anyone watching.)
