‘Teen Mom 2’: Why Does Kailyn Lowry Know so Much About Javi Marroquin’s Cheating Scandal?

Kailyn Lowry seems to have a lot of dirt on her ex-husband. The mother of three and Javi Marroquin have had a pretty complicated relationship ever since they proceeded with their divorce back in 2015. Actually, it kind of looked like the former lovebirds really couldn’t stand to be around each other, but looks can be deceiving. Lowry, who was placed in the middle of Marroquin’s cheating scandal, apparently knows a lot about what’s been going on in the life of her ex, and she’s finally airing it all to the public.

Kailyn Lowry accused Javi of trying to sleep with her

In a previously unaired clip from the Teen Mom 2 reunion special, Lowry couldn’t help but confide in her friend and co-star, Leah Messer, about a weird encounter she had with Marroquin. She told Messer that Marroquin had shown up at her hotel room door at 6:30 in the morning. When Messer questioned why he would show up, Lowry didn’t mince any words. She said “He tried to f— me, and I was like no.”

The conversation was allegedly meant to be a private gossip session between two girlfriends, but there was one big problem. Both Messer and Lowry were mic’d up at the time. The attempts at whispering and covering their mouths were no match for the power of professional audio equipment.

Everyone has accused Lowry of being petty

Lowry has caught a lot of flack over the last year for her interactions with Lauren Comeau. Everyone assumed she was just being petty, but as it turns out, Lowry just didn’t want to be bothered with a woman who probably wasn’t going to be in the picture the following year. It seems like Lowry had some insider information that, in her mind, made it unnecessary for her to get to know Comeau.

Apparently, Lowry has been aware of Marroquin’s wandering eye for a lot longer than most people assumed. During a candid moment on Teen Mom 2, Lowry drops a bit of a bombshell. She accused Marroquin of cheating on his fiancée throughout her pregnancy.  

In the scene, an MTV producer asks Lowry if she was aware that Marroquin and Comeau had announced their engagement. Lowry admits she knew it was going to happen but brushed off the conversation until the producer asked her if she was planning to congratulate them. Lowry responded by telling he producer that No, she had no plans on congratulating them. She thinks for a moment then adds “Congrats! Good luck, he’s been cheating on you since you were pregnant.”

Why is Kailyn Lowry so in the know?

If Lowry really doesn’t care about what her baby daddy is up to, one has to wonder how she has so much insider information. While the former couple is successfully co-parenting their son, Lincoln, they don’t seem particularly close. The former duo doesn’t seem to be friends; actually, they don’t even seem to be frenemies. So, how exactly does Lowry know so much about the goings-on of Marroquin’s life?

It seems like the former couple may not be on excellent terms, but apparently, they share some friends in common. According to Us Magazine, Lowry was called to the scene when an explosive fight broke out between Marroquin and his then-fiance, Comeau after he was caught cheating recently. Lowry alleges that she was called eight times in the middle of the night from people trying to diffuse the situation.

If Lowry and Marroquin still share friends in common, or, at the very least, are involved in the same social circles, her information is probably coming from them rather than Marroquin himself. If Marroquin is as big of a cheater as Lowry alleges, word is going to spread, and it is going to spread fast.
