No one is sure what caused the end of Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin's marriage, and we may never be certain given all of the factors involved.
This latest report is pretty shocking, however ...
A third person may be involved in the split between the Teen Mom 2 stars, who recently confirmed their separation after four years together.
She just happens to Lowry's former best friend, too.
Christina "Peach" Pietrobon has been trying to wedge herself in between Marroquin and Lowry, according to celebrity news site Radar Online.
A source allegedly close to the estranged pair says:
"Peach is a driving force in Javi wanting a divorce."
"She tried to make him choose between her and his family."
She even went so far, the insider claims, "as to say none of his friends would be there for him if he chose to stay with his wife."
Pietrobon is still trying to manipulate Marroquin, too.
She wants Javi, who is still deployed overseas with the U.S. Air Force, to fall for her, but sources point out he doesn't look at her that way.
Javi sources says she isn't "anything more than a friend."
They did hook up in high school, and while nothing much resulted from that, Pietrobon has apparently "never gotten over" Marroquin.
Still he wants her involved in his family's life.
The source continued:
"The only reason she has become 'friends' with Kail is because Javi pushed it... [She] now takes every opportunity to tell Javi to leave her."
"She even told Javi that Kail and the boys should not pick him up at the airport when he returns from his deployment, that she should be the one there.
Pietrobon, the source claims, is pining and "hoping to have time to change his mind if he leaves Kail and she can see him more."
Not even, Pietrobon herself told Radar, hoping to clear up any and all rumors suggesting that she's breaking up their marriage.
“That’s not true at all,” she said.
Peach says they are indeed close, but suggestions that it's romantic are way off. They are more than friends, just not that way.
“We’ve never left Javi’s side and never will. Javi is one of my best friends, he’s more than that, he’s family too."
"I would never make him choose between me and anything else," she continued, reiterating that nothing shady is going on.
"It’s not the way friendship works.”
Do you believe Pietrobon?
Or is this Peach rotten?
