Move over Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley! There’s a new teen couple eager to take your places as the biggest hot messes on MTV.
Those eager ones are new 16 and Pregnant couple Jennifer Del Rio and father of her twins boys, Josh Smith. And yes, Jennifer is the one that can be seen on the 16 and Pregnant trailer hitting her boyfriend Josh.
And it seems the couple’s domestic violence incidents do not end when the cameras stop rolling. TMZ is reporting Florida cops were called this week on April 18 after Jennifer, 17, allegedly punched Josh, 19, in the face during an argument. According to Josh’s statement to the police, Jennifer became “irate” and “punched him in the face and pulled on his shirt” when he tried to break up with her.
Jennifer however denies the report and states Josh was the one who punched himself and tried to frame her, as Josh ended up with a bloody nose. The cops simply took a report and made no arrest. Josh was also arrested back in November for allegedly attacking Jennifer and was ordered to complete a domestic violence program. Jennifer alleged back then that Josh threatened to have her raped.
But here comes the shocker folks. Josh filed a restraining order against Jennifer this week and in his court papers, he states Jennifer got pregnant on purpose so that she could star on the MTV hit reality show.
In the court documents, Josh alleges Jennifer is a “compulsive liar” who concocted a diabolical scheme to get pregnant. She apparently starting telling him she was knocked up (though she wasn’t) so that he wouldn’t wear a condom.
“She was giving me sonogram pictures … that she claimed was ‘our baby’ when in actually [sic] it was her friend’s sonogram pictures she was copying. She lied to me and my parents for 3 months saying she was pregnant. She wanted so desperately to be on ‘Sixteen and Pregnant’,” explains Josh.
Jennifer has also filed her own restraining order against Josh and the two are due back in court on May 2.
So let’s tally this up. The couple has a history of domestic violence and they have twins together? Jackpot! Something tells us they are a shoo in for the next installment of Teen Mom! Not that MTV has a history of rewarding bad behavior or anything.
Jennifer and Josh’s 16 and Pregnant episode airs this Tuesday, April 26 on MTV.
