After an explosive fight with her hubby Javi Marroquin, the ‘Teen Mom 2’ star revealed she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Read on for her shocking confession.

The mothers on Teen Mom 2 have shed a light into their personal struggles of raising kids at such a young age, and now Kailyn Lowry and cast mate Jenelle Evans have something else in common.

Like Jenelle, Kailyn reveals that she suffers from bipolar disorder. She discovered the diagnosis during a therapy session after a massive fight between husband Javi Morrquin and his family.

“My mom is bipolar, and it turns out I am too,” Kailyn tells of the mental illness, which is also known as manic-depressive disorder and marked by severe mood swings.

“I just want to publicly apologize in advance to my fans and even though Javi and I have moved on from it, I want to say I’m sorry again to him and his family for letting my emotions get the best of me,” she tells the website. “I know how humiliating that is for them, and I’m humiliated myself,” she adds.

She didn’t elaborate on what the incident was, most likely because it was caught on film for season 4 of Teen Mom 2, and the moms are under contract and prevented from disclosing any shocking information that will end up on TV.

But it was the fight that urged her to seek counseling — during which she found out about the disorder and will soon be taking medication.
