Earlier this week, we reported on the shocking / not-shocking news that Javi Marroquin and Lauren Comeau ended their engagement.
The breakup itself wasn't the biggest surprise of all time (breakups do happen in this world), but we were a bit taken aback by the circumstances.
Given that Javi and Lauren had welcomed a son, bought a house together, and gotten engaged, all in the past year, that development was a whole lot to digest on its own.
But it also came on the heels of a blowout fight at the couple's home in Dover, Delaware, and the situation has become even more bizarre in the ensuing days.
We now know that Javi called 911 on his sister, not on Lauren, as many outlets initially reported.
And while Lidia Marroquin was clearly involved in the altercation somehow, one insider tells The Hollywood Gossip exclusively that it all started because Javi got caught cheating on Lauren.
Jump into the gallery below for our inside information on this increasingly messy situation - and the predictably hilarious way he responded to being outed moments ago.
UPDATE: Thanks to The Ashley's Reality Roundup, we now know exactly why Javi called the cops, and we've also identified Javi's cheating partner.
This story gets more ridiculous by the moment, folks! Let's get into it ...
It wasn't all that long ago that Lauren and Javi seemed destined for a lifetime of domestic bliss.
They welcomed their first child together back in November, and Lauren seemed to delight in her role as a second mom to Lincoln, Javi's son from his marriage to Kailyn Lowry.
All Falls Down
But the family life that Javi and Lauren built for themselves came tumbling down this week, when the couple parted ways following an ugly altercation at their newly-purchased home.
Fans were surprised when the 911 call from August 17 revealed that Javi requested a police presence in response to behavior from his sister, not from Lauren. We were equally thrown off at what may be the most chill 911 call of all time. Who calmly asks a dispatcher for help getting their equally calm sister out of their house? Something more had to be going on here.
The Heart of the Matter
Even though everyone who was there that night was relatively calm and collected and has been tight-lipped on the matter since, it seems that Javi became angry with Lidia either because she was siding with Lauren, or because she refused to leave his home until the tension had been defused.
So what started this apparently intense fight between Javi and Lauren? An argument so heated that the cops needed to get involved (or at least speak to them about it)?
Caught In the Act?
Well, according to our insider, there was in fact more to the story. Lauren became infuriated upon learning that Javi had been unfaithful to her.
A Familiar Pattern
We don't know exactly how she found out, but those who are familiar with Marroquin's past likely won't be too shocked by this development.
Once a Cheater ...
After all, the Teen Mom 2 star doesn't have the greatest track record with regard to fidelity, and Kailyn Lowry has repeatedly claimed that he was unfaithful during their brief marriage.
In some ways, Lauren probably wasn't terribly surprised by Javi's (alleged) infidelity herself. After all, she has first-hand experience with his reluctance to be "tied down."
Second Time's the Charm
You may recall that Javi and Lauren broke up for several months before reconciling back in March of 2018. He was apprehensive about being tied down then, and it showed in how he behaved after they split.
During that time, Javi made the absolute most of his return to the singles' scene. Dude got after it.
An Ill-Fated Affair
Famously, it was around this time that Javi hooked up with his Teen Mom 2 co-star (and Kail Lowry's sworn nemesis) Briana DeJesus. It's even been suggested that Javi got Lauren pregnant while he was still dating Briana, though the timetables have been hard to pin down.
Why Stop There?
But Briana wasn't Javi's only conquest during this time. Far from it, in fact. And not even the only conquest who calls herself a member of the Teen Mom franchise!
Javi also hooked up with Kail between while he was on a break from his relationship with Lauren. It's not clear when or how many times this occurred or whether he was also involved with anyone else at the time.
A Little Overlap
Kail, for her part, has stated that she was "blindsided" by the news that Javi and Lauren had gotten back together, as she was still sleeping with him at the time.
A Lot on His Plate
Yes, if you're keeping score at home, it seems that at one point in his life, Javi was hooking up with Lauren, Briana, and Kail AT THE SAME TIME!
Not the Culprits
But it seems unlikely that Javi cheated on Lauren with either Kail or Bri. The latter is in a relationship, and the former is likely beyond sick of his s--t at this point in life.
Partner In Crime
So who DID Javi cheat with this time around? Well, it could've been one of the many other side-pieces he's hooked up with in the past two years! Like this mystery woman, for example!
Or how about Madison Channing Walls? Remember her? She and Javi were madly in love when they dated for about a month back in 2017. It was an intense and very public couple of weeks, we'll give them that.
Now THIS Would Be Scandalous
And then there's Briana's sister, Brittany DeJesus. Yes, it was rumored (never confirmed) that the two of them were hooking up around the time of his breakup with Madison.
Reason to Be Suspicious
Anyway, it's not hard to see why Lauren might have been reluctant to take Marroquin back, seeing how much he'd been around the block during their break. Dude was getting around like a record.
Back On Her Good Side
But Marroquin tried to set her mind at ease by publicly confessing that he "definitely could’ve done things differently” and declaring that he would never cheat on her.
Waving Your Own Red Flag
Of course, as the old saying goes, you should be skeptical of anyone who feels the need to verbally assure you that they're not sleeping around. (That's not really an old saying, but you know what we mean. Sage advice.)
Forever a Mystery?
For now, no one knows. Or at least they're not saying. We may never find out the identity of Javi's cheating partner, but our source assures he did, indeed, cheat.
Does It Matter?
In all likelihood, he hooked up with some rando he met at his Crossfit gym. And if you're Lauren, is the identity of his side-piece really all that important? Seems like she already has all the information she needs, but stay tuned. We guarantee we haven't heard the last of this and that Javi should be going ballistic any second.
[UPDATE] There He Goes! Right on Cue!
It took all of 10 minutes before Javi Marroquin blew up Kailyn Lowry's phone and accused her of leaking this story - according to her. And hey, since she's already being accused of something, what's to stop her from holding back what she knows, if she in fact knows something?
Not Yet ... But I OWN You, B
Kail then posted two amazings dig on Twitter, saying that she'll refrain from airing Javi's dirty laundry, you know, like HE did during their breakup and divorce ... and that anyway, KARMA is a bitch but she will let "her" do the talking. Savage.
Just a few open-ended questions for discussion after reading between the lines here: 1. Would Javi be going ballistic over this and coming at Kail if it weren't true? 2. Is it implicit in Kail's non-denial comments that she could, in fact, air plenty of his dirty laundry? Just saying.
[UPDATE AGAIN] It Continues!!
In her latest Twitter bombshell, Kailyn takes another dig at the fact that Javi supposedly blames her for this, implying that she was personally called in to help resolve this situation between himself and Lauren initially. Wild.
No Good Deed ...
The Ashley's Reality Roundup has confirmed that Javi's sister was indeed on the scene (and had the police called on her) because she was attempting to remove his infant son from the home before the fight with Lauren escalated further.
Taking a Stand
“Javi didn’t want Lidia there, and didn’t want her taking his son, so he called 911 because she refused to leave without the baby,” the source said.
Kail on the Side?
Though Kail's tweets confirm that Javi was caught cheating, The Ashley also reports that Lowry definitely was not Marroquin's side-piece.
Ditto For Bri
As for Briana -- who has now broken up with boyfriend Johnny Rodriguez -- she gave an interview to Us Weekly in which she confirmed that the timing of the split is purely coincidental, and she wants nothing to do with Javi.
Clearing the Air
“Me breaking up with John has nothing to do with the rumored problems Javi is having in his personal life,” she told the magazine.
New News About Old News
“Javi is old news to me, and I’m not breaking up with John with the hopes of getting back with him," she added. "That’s just ridiculous. Even if Javi did want me back — which I’m certain he doesn’t — it’s a solid no from my point. We will never, ever be back together.”
