Earlier this week, the world learned that Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus had broken up after less than four months of dating.
Rumored reasons for the split vary (Briana says Javi dumped her due to her desire for more plastic surgery; he insists that wasn't the case.), but at this point the breakup has been confirmed by both parties.
The news wasn't terribly surprising as, frankly, no one expected these two to last this long.
In fact, in the hours afrer word of the separation went public, many fans were less concerned with the "he said, she said" details, and more interested in what Javi's ex-wife, Kailyn Lowry, thought about the situation.
Now, we finally have her long-awaited response...
At first, Javi and Briana's relationship was viewed by fans as a revenge fling. But as the months went on, it began to look as though these two might be in it for the long haul.
Intensity in Two Cities
From the start, Javi and Briana's relationship faced a number of significant hurdles, not the least of which was the fact that he lives in Delaware, while she's based out of Orlando.
The Kail Factor
In the eyes of many TM2 fans, the biggest obstacle facing Bri and Javi was Marroquin's ex-wife, Kailyn Lowry. But interestingly, Kail doesn't seem to have stood in the couple's way. In fact, she might be what brought them together.
It's widely believed that Bri began dating Javi in order to get under Kailyn's skin. If that's the case, it worked ... at first. Kail seemed to lose interest in the situation after a few weeks and stopped publicly responding to news about the couple. Until now...
When news of Briana and Javi's breakup went public fans were dying to know what Kailyn had to say. But there was a time when it looked like she would choose not to comment at all.
The Lowry Verdict
Today, however, Kail has opened up in an interview published by Radar Online. And her followers might not like what she has to say...
The High Road
"It's none of my business, and I wish Javi the best, as always," Kailyn said when asked about the breakup.
Disappointment on Team Kail
Many of Kailyn's biggest fans have been waiting for this split for months and were disappointed when Kailyn didn't throw a little shade.
Where's the Drama?
In fact, the consensus seems to be that Javi and Briana's breakup has been disappointingly drama-free on all sides. (Which, of course, has bolstered the theory that this really was just a revenge romance.)
Briana and Javi's Take
Don't get us wrong--it's not like Briana and Javi are singing each other's praises these days. But it sounds like the relationship more fizzled out than exploded.
"Javi and I are not together," Briana stated in a recent interview. "Our futue just doesn't line up."
"He doesn't want me to get my surgery for a breast lift, lipo, and tummy tuck (which I'm doing in two weeks) because it'll look bad on his name at work," she later elaborated.
"I have no bad things to say about him," Briana added. "He wanted a wife and home right now and I saw no reason to rush."
An Amicable Split
"I wish him the best going forward, and I am sad things panned out this way, but this is currently where things stand," DeJesus concluded.
So Who Broke Up With Whom?
Asked who was the one pull the plug, Briana gave this vague response: "I don't plan on moving in with him this summer for these reasons, and he broke up with me."
Javi Begs to Differ
Javi offered a slightly different version of events, saying, "The surgery itself wasn't the issue."
"Unfortunately, it didn't work out for us," he told Radar. "Bri is an amazing person with the biggest heart I ever got to hold ... She's got a bright future, and she'll make any guy feel special."
The Obvious Question...
Naturally, the situation has fans wondering if there's any hope of a reconciliation between Javi and Kailyn. We think the answer to that question is abundantly clear...
No Effing Way
While both parties have admitted to still having feelings for one another, they also say too miuch has changed since their time together for them to ever consider giving their relationship a second chance. That's probably for the best...
