Kailyn Lowry barely appeared in Part 1 of the Teen Mom 2 reunion on May 17, but in the short few minutes that she did show up, she revealed some major news! She said she’s no longer interested in rekindling a romance with ex Javi Marroquin because they’re too “toxic” for each other — and, she’s already dating someone new.

The big reveal came after Dr. Drew and his co-host, Nessa, asked Kailyn why she and Javi couldn’t make it work this time around, and whether she even wants to be in a long-term relationship. “I may or may not be in a relationship right now,” she said. And when they pressed for more information, she said, “Javi knows about him, and Chris [Lopez] also knows about him. So no secrets over here.

Then, when Nessa asked Kailyn if they could say hi to this mystery boyfriend, Kailyn said she’d “call him right now” and have him “walk in right now” if that’s what they wanted. And obviously, they did. But before Kailyn brought him into view, the episode ended with a “to be continued” message, so viewers will have to wait until next week to meet him.

Like we said — we didn’t get a lot from Kailyn this week, but Leah Messer did speak out about how her friendship with Kail has become rocky as of late. Apparently, Kailyn hasn’t been happy with Leah for liking a “self growth post” that Briana DeJesus shared on Instagram earlier this year. Obviously, Kailyn and Briana don’t get along, so Kailyn doesn’t like seeing that her longtime friend, Leah, is being nice to her. Dr. Drew urged Leah to reach out to Kailyn and to try to make amends, but Leah said she’s already tried many times. Leah also took to Instagram on May 16 to further explain the situation and how she’d like to reconnect with Kailyn when she’s ready.
