TEEN Mom Kailyn Lowry’s ex-husband Javi Marroquin filed a restraining order against his ex-fiancee Lauren Comeau for “hitting him in front of their son.”
In court papers exclusively obtained by The Sun, Javi, 28, filed a protection from abuse order against Lauren, 29, and requested temporary custody of their son Eli, 2, on June 21 before he requested to drop the order one day later.

Javi claimed in the Delaware court papers: “Respondent assaulted me in front of our children, I worry she will come to my house and assault me again and/or try to take our son.
“She has assaulted me on multiple occasions and due to my career I want to protect my job and kids.”
Javi continued to claim of the alleged altercation: “Verbal argument she closed fist punched me several times. She snatched my gold chain off my neck. Our 2 year old son was present and witnessed.”
Javi, who shares 50/50 custody with Lauren, also filed for temporary custody of Eli.
He requested Lauren stay away from him, his home and his workplace.
A temporary order of protection from abuse was granted, as the court “finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the Respondent has committed an act of domestic violence against the petitioner and further finds that there is an immediate and present danger of additional acts of violence.”
She was ordered to stay 100 feet away from Javi, his residence and workplace except for visitation exchanges.
She was only allowed to contact him by text or email regarding Eli.
Their custody order from November 2020 was to remain in effect. They were encouraged to file any permanent custody changes in civil court.
They were expected back in court on August 23, 2021.
Then on June 22, Javi filed to voluntarily dismiss the petition.
He explained: “I no longer feel threatened by my son’s mother. I believe we can handle any altercation that arises.”
Javi and Lauren did not respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
Javi and Lauren first started dating in 2017.
They split and he moved on with Teen Mom 2 star Briana DeJesus.
After a months-long relationship, they split and he reconciled with Lauren in March 2018, as they announced their pregnancy only weeks later.
They welcomed their son Eli in November 2019.
Then in August 2019, Javi and Lauren’s relationship was rocked by a cheating scandal.
Lauren caught him naked with another woman in their Delaware home after she went upstairs for the evening following a gathering with friends.
Javi posted on Instagram following the betrayal: “Lauren, I’m sorry for my mistakes, I’m sorry I broke your heart, I’m sorry I disrespected you. I’m sorry I took you for granted. I could say sorry for a million other things but I’m sorry will never be enough.
“I hurt the one person that I love the most. I will do everything in my power to become a better man and hopefully one day you can forgive me. I’ll do anything to have you home.”
After a weeks-long split, the two reconciled.
But then in October 2020, Javi’s ex-wife, Kailyn, revealed on an episode of Teen Mom 2 that was filmed in late 2019 that he “tried to f**k” her “in the Wawa parking lot” while Lauren was home with their son.
Kailyn, who shares son Lincoln, 7, with Javi, continued to a producer: “He pulled into the Wawa parking lot when I was getting gas… He opened the door and was like, ‘I want to f**k you plain and simple.’
“And I said bye Javi. And I have all the text messages of him trying to meet up anytime I’m in Dover.”
Javi responded to the scene over Instagram: “I stopped filming to live my life normally cause I’ve realized my kids life when they get older will suffer if I continue to be a part of this tv show.
“Not only did my mistakes play out on the show which I’ve had to live (and continue to live with) but I know one day I’d have to explain to my kids all my actions.
“Those episode checks weren’t worth it to me.. and I can make a living without it. None of this is worth it to me… So I’m gonna go back to minding my own business and living my life with my family and being the absolute best dad I can be.”
Fans have speculated many times that Javi and Lauren got back together in recent months, but Lauren has shut down rumors.
They seemed to be co-parenting well, as they vacationed together in Florida with Lincoln and Eli days before he filed the restraining order.
