Javi Marroquin has been facing rumors of a romance with his Teen Mom 2 co-star Briana DeJesus for the past few months but according to a new interview, it is not DeJesus who he wants to date. Instead, the reality dad is hoping to rekindle his relationship with his former girlfriend, Lauren Comeau.
Following a report in which Marroquin suggested that he would be open to dating DeJesus, he is clarifying his statements further, revealing that while he is friends with DeJesus, he is currently trying to get back in the good graces of Comeau.
"Oh geez," he told In Touch Weekly in regard to the comments he made to Radar Online. "No more comments on my life. My lips are gonna be sealed. I'm trying to get Lauren back and then Briana came out haha but it's fine."
During his interview with Radar Online, Marroquin said he would be "open to dating" his Teen Mom 2 co-star and said she was a "cool girl."
"Her whole family is awesome. She’s really beautiful. We text back and forth. We’ll see what happens... I’m sure we’ll hang out. I’ll take her out somewhere. We’ll see,” he said.
As for his relationship with Comeau, Marroquin said she struggled to deal with the fame that came with dating a television personality.
“I love Lauren, but unfortunately it didn’t work out. I’m learning not everyone wants the attention. Dating someone on a TV show is tough. I think Lauren had a hard time adjusting to that and I had a hard time understanding that,” he noted.
“I never believed in love at first sight, but when I saw Lauren I definitely did," he continued. "I’m hoping Lauren and I can figure this out because she made me the happiest I’ve ever been.”
