If you follow Kailyn Lowry on social media, you're likely aware of the Teen Mom 2 star's close friendship with Becky Hayter.
The longtime BFFs are so close that rumors of Kailyn cheating on Javi Marroquin with Becky were once rampant amongst TM2 obsessives.
Now, Kailyn is speaking out about those reports for the first time.
And you might be surprised by what she has to say...
Kail and Javi: The Split Heard Round The World
Kailyn and Javi's problems were well-documented, so it didn't come as much of a surprise when they went their separate ways. Even so, fans have been speculating about hidden causes ever since.
Kailyn and Becky in Simpler Times
Kailyn and Becky go way back. Lowry has said Hayter was invaluable source of love and support during her most recent pregnancy.
Javi has accused Kailyn of being unfaithful while he was stationed overseas with the US Air Force.
Two Can Play That Game
Kailyn has turned the tables and claimed that Javi was the one who cheated during his deployment. In fact, she claims to have photographic evidence of his infidelity.
The Plot Thickens on Marriage Boot Camp
Despite the fact that they're no longer married, Kail and Javi are appearing together in the current season of Marriage Boot Camp.
A preview clip released last month shows Kailyn confessing to hooking up with a woman who is also an acquaintance of Javi's. Fans were intrigued when a source told The Ashley's Reality Roundup: "The person Kail is referring to in the trailer isn't even a guy. It's a girl."
It Wasn't What it Seemed
As it turned out, Kailyn's female friend with benefits was not Becky, but a close female friend of Javi's. Still, many fans were shocked by ...
A Surprise Cameo
Becky made an unexpected trip to the Marriage Boot Camp House, and many fans assumed the visit meant Kailyn would be confessing that she and Hayter were more than friends.
Sometimes, the Internet Is Wrong...
We know it's hard to believe, but it seems social media was just flat-out wrong on this one.
Kail on Becky: We're Just Friends. Seriously
Kailyn continues to maintain that she and Becky are nothing more than platonic pals. Furthermore, she maintains that Hayter played no part in her divorce from Javi.
Becky has Kailyn's Back
“I was so surprised that Becky came out for Marriage Bootcamp,” Lowry said in a recent interview, “partially because she was never a real factor in our divorce, but also pleasantly surprised because I don’t necessarily have people in my corner the way Javi does.”
Javi has His Own People
As fans of Teen Mom 2 know, Javi has a devoted familial support network. Kailyn doesn't, which may explain why she forms such close bonds with Becky and her other friends.
Hayter Is No Hater
Kailyn says Becky is a true friend who has stood by her through thick and thin without ever attacking Javi.
Becky With the Good Hair
“His friends had no problem bashing me and his family has always been there,” Lowry says in her latest interview. “Becky was someone in my corner... and not even to go against Javi but to let him know she would support both of us if that’s what we wanted.”
No Hard Feelings
Javi Marroquin and Kailyn have been through a lot, and continue to be at odds about some things, but it doesn't appear that he has any animosity toward Becky Hayter at all.
Kail & Becky: Soulmates For Life
Sounds like we could all use a friend like Becky. No wonder Kail is happy to be called Ms. Hayter's "soulmate."
It's been a hard road for Lowry, but with the help of friends like Becky, she recently became the only member of the Teen Mom franchise to earn a four-year college degree - a feat that doesn't get enough recognition.
Whatever you think of her life choices, Kailyn has three young sons to raise, and she'll need all the help she can get emotionally in order to excel in the most important job anyone was ever given - mom.
All is Right with the World
Despite her surname, Becky is a lover, of Kailyn and her kids. We hope that continues for years to come.
