Kailyn Lowry’s body has been forever altered by plastic surgery, according to her soon-to-be ex-husband Javi Marroquin, who’s not a fan.
Why? Because her physical appearance isn’t the only thing that’s been changed, according to the Teen Mom 2 star in his chat with Radar.
In fact, he says Kailyn Lowry’s plastic surgery led to their divorce, at least in part, as her many procedures altered more than just her ass.
Lowry underwent a Brazilian butt lift, tummy tuck and liposuction of her neck, dramatically changing the young mom we first met on MTV.
Ultimately, though, it was emblematic of a shift in mentality that drove Javi away, the U.S. Air Force member tells the celebrity news site.
“She was struggling a lot with her body and her weight issues so she got the surgery,” Marroquin said. “She said it makes her happy.”
“So at the end of the day that’s all that matters.”
Is it, though? Doesn’t sound like be believes so.
Indeed, the father of her second son Lincoln, 2, says he wasn’t on board with the surgeries, which took place right before he was deployed.
“I was more shocked at who she’s becoming,” he said, in what sounds like a cheap shot from a bitter ex than a legitimate critique.
“In the back of my mind I was also worried of who you’re going to be. Are you going to be the same person I fell in love with?”
“Is this going to change you?” Javi recalled thinking, adding, “the surgery is part of the reason we had so many problems.”
Really? Is that fair to put on Kailyn’s shoulders now?
Javi says yes, reiterating that the procedures did change her, as she went to the MTV VMAs braless in a see-through lace shirt.
Is that a bad thing somehow? We’re confused.
Hot new appearance or not, Marroquin will never take Lowry back, ever. Ever. “No, there is nothing that could be done, said or heard.”
“We both know it was too much.”
“We got married and everything was great,” he said, in a rare positive acknowledgement during what has been a rough year for both.
“Our marriage wasn’t always on the rocks.”
“We did have a lot of fun together,” Javi says, adding that he has no regrets: “She was my best friend, we did a lot of fun stuff together.”
“At the end of the day that’s my son’s mother,” he said, adding with an ever-so-slight passive-aggressive dig, “I have a lot of love for Kail.”
“I have a lot of love for who she was.”
Man, this guy knows how to twist the proverbial knife, playing the victim and then dishing out the shade left and right whenever he can.
“If she’s ever going through a rough patch I’m still there for her,” he says. “At co-parenting we’re going great. As far as friendship goes?”
“Maybe one day.”
Of course, Javi also implied that Kailyn “knows what she did” to drive them apart and promises that the truth will “unravel” over time.
Recently, the warring spouses got into a tiff online over Christina “Peach” Pietrobon and her allegations that Kailyn cheated on Javi.
“She found something out, brought it to my attention, so obviously I confronted Kail and asked,” he said of his best friend of 10 years.
“When you ask who the source was, naturally you’re not going to like that person. [My friends are] the only people I can believe,” he said.
“They have no reason to lie to me. Her best friends are telling me this kind of stuff. Why would they lie? They didn’t like what they saw.”
“They didn’t like what she was doing.”
What was that, exactly?
You’ll have to wait for the tell-all book, obviously. Javi, as much as he loves to paint Kailyn as the opportunist, knows the game as well.
