A lot has changed since Teen Mom: The Next Chapter viewers last saw Jaylan Mobley on their TV screens.
Teen Mom fans will remember Jaylan as Leah Messer’s former fiance, who proposed to her on national television during a trip to Costa Rica.
Despite warnings from Teen Mom viewers that she was moving too fast in her relationship, Leah accepted Jaylan’s proposal one year after they began dating.
However, there was trouble in paradise brewing behind the scenes because just two months after getting engaged, Leah and Jaylan called off their engagement.
“While the last year has been tremendously exciting for both of us, we’ve realized that it’s best we walk separate paths,” the former couple said in joint statements.
“We will forever have love and respect for each other, and we ask for privacy as we refocus and transition out of this chapter together,” they added.
Now that the smoke has cleared, Leah’s fans are still wondering what happened for her and Jaylan to call off their engagement so abruptly and without an explanation, still to this day.
So, what has Jaylan been up to since he made his reality TV debut on MTV? Here’s a look at what we know.
