Long before they officially came out as a couple, rumors that Javi Marroquin and Briana DeJesus were dating circulated on social media and left many Teen Mom 2 fans feeling confused.
Both parties commented on their relationship, but at first, Javi and Briana’s remarks raised more questions than they answered.
The bewilderment began when Javi confirmed that he was dating Briana in an interview with Radar Online.
The situation seemed simple enough … until Briana denied dating Javi in an interview with E! News just days later.
It’s still unclear if Briana was lying, or if she and Javi had not yet made their relationship official.
Whatever the case, the days of uncertainty are well behind them at this point.
In fact, Javi and Briana seem to be moving forward as a couple at breakneck speed.
Briana recently celebrated their love by posting a series of couple-y photos on Instagram.
“Thank you for being such an amazing man to not only myself but to Stella and Nova,” Briana captioned the photos.
At one point she added, “#yeaididwin,” but wisely decided to delete the combative hashtag.
Certainly sounds like “serious couple” stuff, right?
Well, it doesn’t end there.
Javi took things even further, commenting:
“Thank you for being so good to me. I never take that for granted. I love you.”
Not surprisingly, fans didn’t respond well to what was widely viewed as an effort to declare victory over Javi’s ex-wife and Briana’s biggest rival, Kailyn Lowry.
“Tacky and spiteful. One day you’ll realize real relationships don’t last on petty bull. Enjoy your five minutes of fame Briana, it will be over before you know it. Just like this sad excuse for a ‘relationship,'” wrote one irate fan.
“She just had a baby and already looking for a step daddy,” commented another.
Kailyn is taking the high road and has yet to respond directly to Briana and Javi’s disses.
However, her friend Bone Estrada has come to Kail’s defense on Twitter, tweeting that the only thing Briana won was a “small [banana emoji].”
Kailyn responded to her friend with a savage burn of her own, tweeting, “#iwon more time with my son.”
Needless to say, it doesn’t look like this feud will be resolved anytime soon.
Fortunately for fans of reality TV feuds, the whole thing is playing out on social media.
