When we first heard the rumors that Tyler Baltierra had cheated on Catelynn Lowell, we were floored.
Surely it couldn't be true, right? Those two have been together for years and years, they're in it for the long haul -- if they split, does true love even exist?
It was a tough pill to swallow -- the toughest, even.
The rumors started with a blind item published last August, one that read "The MTV cameras have turned a blind eye to the cheating by this significant other of an OG Teen Mom because it doesn't fit in the storyline."
And then, a couple of weeks ago, it was officially revealed that the blind item was supposed to be about Catelynn and Tyler.
But before our hearts could break too badly, these Teen Mom favorites hopped on Twitter to joke about the rumor.
"Well since it's out in the open @TylerBaltierra did cheat on me," Catelynn joked. "He's busted."
Tyler added "Damn it! We really tried keeping that a secret too! Well I'm sorry, I couldn't resist her/him ... idk it was dark and I was drunk."
Funny, right? They're obviously joking because the idea that Tyler would cheat is so ludicrous. Case closed.
... Except there's more.
Several days ago, Catelynn shared a photo of cocktail on Instagram and wrote "Whelp since he's out cheating."
More jokes! Cool! But that's all, right?
Nope. Not by a long shot.
Someone tweeted that Tyler is "a cheat" and "his wife is boozing her sorrows away," and of course he couldn't let that lie.
"Well, it goes both ways," he wrote in response. "Sometimes I booze while she cheats, sometimes she'll booze while I cheat. It just depends on the day of the week."
A fan urged Tyler and Catelynn to "be multi-taskers" and to drink and cheat at the same time, and Tyler replied with "Oh trust me, it's been done lmao."
He also said that you have to have a good attitude "when your life is displayed on TV for the world to dissect, ridicule, & judge" because "if you don't, you won't survive lol," but still, something seems a little off here.
Mostly this: why can't they just let the rumor go?
We get making a joke or two about the situation, but to bring it up over and over and over seems a little suspicious, honestly.
And let's not forget that if Tyler was supposed to be cheating on Catelynn during the last season of Teen Mom OG, well, it wouldn't exactly be unbelievable.
All throughout the last season, Catelynn struggled with her mental health, and Tyler struggled with Catelynn's struggles.
Things were so bad between them that at one point, Tyler told her "You better figure something out. Listen if you go into this thing again I got to check out."
"I can't do this forever, there is no way," he said. "Not like this."
Last season was also when Tyler made his now-infamous fat-shaming comments -- "I don't want no heifer for a wife" was an actual comment he made to Catelynn.
So did he cheat? Obviously we can't say, we weren't there.
We're just saying that it would be pretty cool if they would both just cut the jokes now.
