Teen Mom 2 stars Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus have been dating for a few months, but even though things seem to be going well for the new couple, there is one person who isn’t happy about the relationship: Roxanne DeJesus, Briana’s mom. Over the holiday weekend, she vented on Twitter about her daughter’s new boyfriend claiming he’s not being truthful about being deployed again. Could Kailyn Lowry’s ex be lying about his deployment just to create some drama and a better storyline?
According to In Touch Weekly, Roxanne tweeted – then deleted – a series of tweets accusing Marroquin of not being truthful.
“How many times can you say, ‘I’m being deployed’ and not get deployed,” Roxanne wrote, in a screenshot obtained by a fan. “Stop using deployment as a tool for sympathy. But it’s a good storyline. GTFOH…”
Per People Magazine, the 25-year-old revealed that the Air Force was deploying him for a second time just a little more than a year after he returned from his first deployment in Qatar. He said that he didn’t expect it and that Briana was helping him get through it.

The couple each have children from previous relationships. Marroquin shares his 4-year-old son Lincoln with Lowry, and DeJesus has two daughters – Nova, 6 (with ex-boyfriend Devoin Austin) and 5-month-old Stella (with ex Luis Hernandez).
They are currently in a long-distance relationship, with Marroquin living in Delaware and DeJesus in Florida. They take turns visiting each other, with DeJesus apparently going to Delaware to spend Christmas with her new boyfriend.
And, this, apparently is what set off her mom. In addition to the tweet about Marroquin’s questionable upcoming deployment, she also went after her daughter for not taking care of her kids. She wrote to her daughter that she needs to stop acting like she does so much because it’s her mom that does it all. She also told Briana to stop acting like a victim. Roxanne then asked how many times she must give of herself to please her daughter.
According to PopCulture, Marroquin plans to spend time with Lowry and their son before he goes overseas – if he really is leaving.
Marroquin and Lowry were married for nearly three years before divorcing in 2016. She doesn’t seem to be too thrilled with her ex dating the newest Teen Mom 2 co-star, and they recently squashed their plans of writing a book together.
The two were still married during Marroquin’s first deployment, and they both accused each other of cheating while he was out of the country. They attempted to mend their relationship during the most recent season of Marriage Boot Camp but ended up going their separate ways instead.
Briana DeJesus or Javi Marroquin have not commented on her mom’s tweets.
