Considering the final documents were signed amost a year ago, you’d think Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin’s divorce would be old news by now.
But Kavi drama keeps making tabloid headlines, and for now at least, it seems Lowry and Marroquin aren’t too bothered by the continued interest in their relationship.
In fact, Kailyn and Javi are releasing a pair of memoirs in which each will offer their take on what went wrong in the marriage.
As part of their promotional duties, Kail and Javi have been offering some of their most candid interviews to date.
In the past week alone, we’ve Javi has revealed he’s nervous about traveling with Kailyn during their upcoming book tour, as well as that he once considered the possibility of a reconciliation, but now believes that ship has sailed.
Now it’s Kailyns turn to spill the tea, and she certainly didn’t disappoint while opening up today on Olivia Caridi’s Mouthing Off podcast.
In a revealing interview, Kailyn revealed that she believes Javi was not completely honest with her in the early days of their relationship.
Lowry says she and Javi met while she was working at a Delaware mall.
She had already achieved a measure of fame, but Marroquin insisted he didn’t know he she was.
“Apparently he knew who I was and acted like he had no idea,” Lowry said.
“Javi had me fooled. He actually knew who I was and pretended he didn’t know.”
Kail says she didn’t learn the truth until eight months into their relationship, and by that time, she had already fallen for Javi.
Asked by Caridi if she believes Marroquin used her to attain fame, Kailyn replied:
“Oh absolutely. 100 percent. But I don’t think that he could have ever predicted that he would have fallen in love with me like the way that we were together.”
Kailyn says that while she was in love with Javi at one point, her feelings had faded by the time she got pregnant with their son, Lincoln.
Lowry says that while she’s sure Javi is sad the relationship didn’t work out, she assumes he’s happy with all he gained from their time together.
“It couldn’t have worked out better for him,” she tells Caridi.
In a statement issued to Radar Online, Javi was indignant about Kailyn’s remarks:
“That’s crazy. I’m the only person that still has her back and she talks about me that way,” he told the outlet.
Interestingly, he did not deny using Kailyn to help boost his own public profile.
