Last night, Tyler Baltierra posted an Instagram video that it’s earned him a good deal of praise from Teen Mom OG fans.
In the clip, Tyler comes clean about struggling with mental illness and admits that he’s going through a challenging time.
Baltierra doesn’t go into much detail with regard to the nature of his difficulties, and now, some Teen Mom OG fans believe there’s good reason for that.
Ever since Catelynn Lowell checked into rehab to be treated for her own mental health issues, rumors that Tyler is cheating on his wife have been spreading like wildfire on social media.
For reasons that aren’t entirely clear, many TMOG obsessives believe that last night’s tearful message is a prelude to a cheating confession.
A source tells Radar Online that Tyler is well aware of the infidelity rumors and he’s “really upset” and “pissed” that fans are making a hard time for his family that much more difficult.
“He said ever since Cate has been in rehab, the rumors have started because he’s out doing things on his own, and people don’t seem to like that,” she source tells Radar.
“He said, ‘It’s like everyone wants me to sit on my ass depressed until she comes home. I have to work on myelf too. I have things to get done, for us.'”
According to the insider, a frustrated Baltierra added:
“It’s okay for me to have a life. I can’t even go to a damn concert and say hi to people without cheating accusations. It’s stupid.”
The source continues:
“It’s been hard on him. He misses her. He’s just not used to this scrutiny.”
Catelynn checked into rehab back in November after revealing to her Twitter followers that she’d been struggling with suicidal impulses.
On January 17, she checked back into treatment and has remained there in the weeks since.
Those who know Baltierra best say that while the separation has been hard on him, he would never cheat on Catelynn.
Now if only he could convince his fans of that.
