Last week, we learned that despite occasional appearances to the contrary, Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin have been separated since December.
Insiders say Kailyn and Javi decided to go their separate ways shortly after he shipped off for Qatar for a tour of duty with the U.S. Air Force.
The couple briefly tried to make their marriage work on a long-distance basis, but they frequently argued, and they eventually unfollowed one another on Twitter.
Shortly thereafter, Kailyn confirmed that she'd be seeking a divorce from Javi.
As we learned from their occasionally heated social media exchanges and Teen Mom 2 scenes that captured the tense final days of their relationship, Kailyn and javi did not part on good terms:
The real ugliness may still be ahead of them, however, as Life & Style is reporting that Kailyn and Javi are both gearing up for what could be an epically ugly custody battle.
"Kailyn is trying to get full custody for their two-year old son, Lincoln,” a source tells the tabloid.
“Kailyn plans to tell the court she believes Javi is a cheater and she has been the one fully taking care of their son while he’s been away."
Yes, the insider says that Kailyn has reason to believe that Javi was unfaithful, and she'll use his alleged infidelity as the basis of her argument for full custody.
Unfortunately for her, the source also claims that Javi is not planning to go down without a fight.
Apparently, he remains convinced that Kailyn cheated on him with Becky Hayter and several others.
Not only will Javi fight Kailyn for custody of Lincoln, he'll reportedly also fight for partial custody of Isaac, Kailyn's 6-year-old son with Jo Rivera.
“Javi thinks he deserves custody,” the source explains. “And he’s spent the past three years helping co-parent Isaac and thinks he deserves partial custody of him. He’s ready to fight.”
Yes, Javi is really going all-in.
This could wind up being one of the most bitterly contested custody battles in Teen Mom history, which is really saying something.
