Telling his side of the story. Teen Mom 2 star Javi Marroquin revealed in a new interview with Us Weekly that he and ex-wife Kailyn Lowry have exchanged few words since she filed for divorce earlier this year.
Marroquin, 23, opened up about the pair’s bitter split, cheating rumors and their children during a Celebrity Gifting Lounge event at Buffalo Wild Wings in Times Square, New York, on Friday, August 26.
“Our first priority is Lincoln’s happiness and Isaac’s happiness. Our second is for them to see both of their parents happy, and together we’re both not happy,” he explained to Us. “I think we both decided that this is the best move and she’ll be happy and I’ll be happy.”
As previously reported, the pair split in May after nearly three years of marriage. The MTV stars are parents of Lincoln, 2. Lowry, 24, is also mom to son Isaac, 6, with ex Jo Rivera.
“We coparent; that’s it. So unless it has to do with the boys, we don’t talk,” Marroquin, who is in the Air Force, said. “I have nothing to say to her.”
As for rumors that Lowry cheated during their relationship? “I don’t wanna put too much out there, but she knows what she did. It’ll come out,” Marroquin told Us. “What’s done in the night will show in the light. It’ll all unravel. I just gotta keep my mouth shut and watch everything unfold.”
The reality star also claimed that his ex’s best friends were the ones who told him about Lowry’s alleged unfaithful behavior. “People want to be around good people, so when they don’t agree with what you’re doing, it’s gonna be brought to my attention,” he explained. “Just because you thought they were your best friends, clearly they were looking out for me. They let me know what’s going on.”
Marroquin continued, “[Kailyn] apologized for hurting me. She didn’t apologize for what she did. Those are two different things.”
In June, rumors swirled online that Lowry was in a same-sex relationship with her pal Becky Hayter. The MTV star denied the reports, but Marroquin says he doesn’t know what to believe anymore.
“[Becky is] a mutual friend of ours for years,” he told Us on Friday. “So I wasn’t really mad about that. … To be honest with you, [Kailyn]’s changed a lot. I left for six months and a lot has changed, so sometimes I don’t even know if I know who she is anymore. She’s living a different life than I thought we were going to.”
