It can be hard to keep up with Javi Marroquin's turbulent love life.
For example, after months of rumors about Javi getting back together with Kailyn Lowry, the Teen Mom 2 baby daddy threw fans a serious curveball last week:
It seems Javi is back with Lauren Comeau, an ex he broke up with back in the summer of 2017.
No one saw it coming - except, apparently, for Javi, who's already talking about Lauren like she's the one.
He's also tearing apart the haters who dare to doubt his sincerity, a list that seems to include his most infamous ex:
The Happy Couple
Javi and Lauren are officially back together. The couple connected online and then met at the wedding of mutual friends last year.
A Long-Distance Affair
A native of Maine, Lauren currently resides in South Carolina. Javi, of course, is based in Delaware. The distance was one of the causes of the couple's first split, but it seems there were several other factors, as well.
The Harsh Glare of the Spotlight
Apparently, Lauren isn't completely thrilled with the secondhand fame that comes with dating a famous reality star.
No Fan of Fame
“I’m learning not everyone wants the attention," Marroquin said when he and Lauren broke up last year. "Dating someone on a TV show is tough. I think Lauren had a hard time adjusting to that and I had a hard time understanding that.”
A Lesson In Empathy
“It was a lot for her and we couldn’t fix it,” he went on. “I learned for my next relationship that I have to put myself in the other person’s shoes.”
That "next relationship" came quickly, as Javi confirmed he was dating Briana DeJesus just one month after breaking up with Lauren. But that romance turned out to be one of Javi's most tumultuous yet...
