We were so close, people.
We had it there for just a little while.
Peace. Serenity. A lack of drama and an apparent understanding between Javi Marroquin and Kailyn Lowry that they had to act like calm, rational, mature adults for the sake of their shared son, Lincoln.
But then the March 11 episode of Teen Mom 2 aired... we witnessed an argument between the exes over a soccer game and a group text chain... and now the reality stars are back to clashing over social media.
What started this feud? What does each side have to say about it?
Scroll down for a full recap and review, chock full of quotes from both Javi and Kailyn!
Tough Baby Daddy Times for Kailyn These Days
As loyal Teen Mom 2 fans know by now, Kailyn had an issue with first baby daddy, Jo Rivera, over his desire for her to pay him child support on a set of recent episodes. This has since been worked out.
And There Also Seem to Be Issues with Chris Lopez
Kailyn just sent this Tweet yesterday, pretty clearly referencing ex-girlfriend Becky and how she couldn't commit to her due to feelings for third baby daddy Chris Lopez, who she now says "never cared."
These two have been on decent terms for awhile now. Distant, perhaps, but not at each other's throat at least.
... on the aforementioned Teen Mom 2 episode, tension arose due to custody dates, soccer games for Lincoln and a text message chain that involved Lauren Comeau.
We don't blame you. In short, Lauren's phone number was included on a group text with other parents of young soccer players -- but Kailyn's was not. And she blamed Marroquin for the awkward development.
Kailyn Was Pretty Angry About It
Speaking to a friend about Comeau being on this soccer group text and not her, Lowry said on air: "The petty in me was like, I wanna text him and be like, ‘You’re a d–k because you literally just told me not to miss games and that’s why you put Lauren’s contact down.'"
Lowry Was Met with Criticism for This Response
"You are so immature,” wrote one user on Twitter. “Like who cares that Lauren was added? That’s [Javi’s] girl. You have three baby daddies — like get it together. You always have an issue with somebody."
Lowry Shot Back and Explained:
And Then Javi Fired Back at Kailyn
“No one added her to any form,” Javi said, referencing the moment in the episode where Lowry's friend talks about Kail being ignored “in the paperwork” for Lincoln’s soccer team. “I already explained this…” he continued.
I Have a Right to My Feelings, Kailyn Replied!
What the Heck is Going on Here?
This actually sounds like a typical sort of issue among exes who share custody of a child, especially when one half then starts seriously dating someone new.
Lowry Explained Her Beef to In Touch Weekly
“The coach’s wife came up to me and said she didn’t have my number,” Kailyn told this tabloid. “Javi only gave his and Lauren’s for [the] team parents group text. I don’t care that she was included. It just should have been IN ADDITION to [me]."
Lowry Has No Problem with Lauren, To Be Clear
She says she doesn't really talk to Comeau, Javi's second baby mama, but she also blames just Javi for this incident, telling In Touch: "She hasn’t affected anything for me and Javi."
But Javi Would Love to See These Two Actually Get Along
“Lauren and I have a baby together. It magnifies the situation,” he once told Radar Online of his ex and his current. “If they could come together and do it for Lincoln that would be great.”
Javi Has a Side to Tell About GroupTextGate
"I explained to Kail the moms went around asking for phone numbers to relay messages," he just told Radar Online of how this situation arose. "I do not like to be in group texts, so we gave Lauren's number."
Why Not Just Include Lowry's Number, Too?
Because she "wasn't at the game," he says simply.
It's Not Like Lowry Would Ever Be Out of the Loop
"I'm more than capable of relaying any messages to Kail if need be," Marroquin added to Radar
There Really is Nothing to See Here
"All the group chat was was a bunch of parents asking which number field the game was on," he continued, saying he tried to tell MTV this quasi drama was really not even worth airing, but that the network edited the scene in which he explained as much.
Can We Just Chill with the Language?
Javi says he didn't actually watch the scene where Lowry said she wanted to slam her ex as a "dick," but told Radar "that's normal" to hear from Kailyn.
Javi Marroquin and His Fam
"That's how she communicates," he says of the semi-curse word. "I'm used to that.
And He's Got Jokes!
"If she doesn't call me a name, I'd think she's feeling under the weather," he quipped to Radar.
Heck, Lowry Would Agree
All is Good Between the Exes, However
"Despite having to relive all this BS that just sparks up again... I ignore it because it's not worth arguing about. I'm busy. Everything's fine," Javi concluded to Radar.
As for the Main People in His Life?
"Lincoln is happy, that's all that matters," Javi says.
And All Is Beyond Good with Comeau
"Lauren couldn't care less who I was with in the past. If a relationship is built off past issues, it'll never work. She's fine."
