Well, it looks like there may be hope for Javi Marroquin and Kailyn Lowry, after all.
Just last month we reported that Javi is dating Cassie Bucka.
Javi and Cassie confirmed their romance on social media in early December, marking the first time that either he or Kailyn made it Instagram official with a new boo since calling it quits on their marriage.
Now, Javi is confirming to Radar Online that he and Cassie have broken up, and fans are already speculating that he ended the relationship in hopes of getting back together with Kailyn.
“She’s amazing, but Cassie has been really hurt in the past so it’s hard for her to not think that she’ll be hurt again,” Marroquin told the site in a surprisingly candid interview.
“I don’t think she was ready for everything to come at her at once.”
Javi seems resigned to the fact that the relationship was doomed from the start, but he also appears to regret that it came to an end so suddenly:
“She’s an amazing girl though and if she ever does allow someone to love her that’ll be a lucky guy,” he said.
“I hope it’ll be me, but not right now I guess.”
“It just sucks cause [Javi and Kailyn’s son] Lincoln was starting to open up to her and asked about her,” he shared. “But I’ll take the bullet on that one.”
So why do fans think he’s gunning to win Kailyn back?
Well, as far as we can tell, the speculation is based on a single tweet that Javi posted, reading:
“I know that I control my thoughts and I should stop reminiscing.”
It’s not much of a clue, but it’s enough to give Kailyn-Javi ‘shippers a shred of hope/
Every time there’s any sort of development in Kailyn or Javi’s life, fans rush to assume that it’s a sign that the beloved former couple is on the road to reconciliation.
And of course, it’s possible that these two are actually still pining for each other – but we have our doubts.
If Javi really is angling to win his baby mama, he may have to fight an uphill battle.
Kailyn has seemed less than pleased with her ex in recent weeks, and publicly threw shade when he posted photos of himself canoodling with Cassie:
“Remember guys, you have to blast your new relationship all over social media or it ain’t real,” Lowry tweeted.
“How many f–ks does Kail give tonight? Zero.”
Sounds like Javi might want to keep his distance for a while.
