Javi Marroquin Opens Up About MTV's Role in His Divorce

Javi Marroquin

Is he just playing the blame game? Javi Marroquin just insinuated that MTV may have played a role in his divorce from Kailyn Lowry, but we're not buying what he's selling.


We watched Javi and Kail struggle for years on Teen Mom 2 before finally deciding to officially split in 2016. Longtime fans of the show know that there were several things that led to their downfall as a couple, and that's just what we saw on camera. Who knows what went on behind the scenes?

Anyway, Javi and Lincoln, 3, posed for the cover of Posh Kids parenting magazine recently, and in the interview, the dad of one said MTV definitely contributed to the divorce, even if it wasn't entirely the network's fault. So it was kind of MTV's fault. Or something.

"I believe that it adds stress," he reportedly confessed of filming for the series. "You're filming these long seasons. I mean it's human instinct to be stressed naturally."

At least he continued, "MTV doesn't hold a gun to your head ... I'm not going to attribute the show to the fail of my marriage. I think we both made decisions and some were right, some were wrong, and that is what ultimately led to the end of our marriage."

Javi also addressed his less than stellar behavior on the most recent season of the show. You know, like the time he sneaked in through her basement and scared everyone inside? Or bust back through the front door because he decided they weren't done arguing?

He admitted that he was "in a bad place" during that time, which is probably an understatement, but at least it's honest. "I think I could have handled it a lot better than what I did," he said.

Whatever ultimately caused the divorce, we're pretty sure MTV wasn't at fault. After all, if that were the case, how does he explain Tyler and Catelynn Baltierra? They've been a couple for over a decade and have had almost their entire relationship documented on MTV. It hasn't torn them apart. Just saying.
