'Teen Mom' Rethinking Custody after Baby Dad's Arrest

2/24/2011 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Teen Mom" star Kailyn Lowry might soon seek sole custody of her kid ... all because of her 19-year-old baby daddy's pot arrest last week in New Jersey -- but we're told, she hasn't made up her mind just yet.


Sources close to Kailyn tell TMZ, she "doesn't know what to believe" anymore -- because her baby dad Jonathan "Jo" Rivera continues to deny that he was ever arrested for "being under the influence of marijuana" ... despite reports to the contrary.

According to sources, Kailyn confronted Jo about the arrest and he insisted it didn't happen ... even though law enforcement sources confirmed to TMZ Jo was booked on the pot charge alongside his older brother Edward.

Kailyn and Jo currently share custody of their baby son Isaac ... but after Jo's arrest, we're told Kailyn is strongly considering a move toward full custody.

I hope she doesn't... he's a good daddy and he comes from a good family. A family that has helped her time and time again when her own family turned their back on her. 19 year olds to stupid things sometimes... at least I know I did.

Lori: Go read The Revelation by Flannery O'Connor... it's a short story so I'm sure you can handle it. You and the character Mrs. Turpin have a lot in common. How sad...

I've never seen this Jo cat show any emotion at all.

Someone who is deceitful usually doesn't change, it typically gets worse.

These teen parents -- ALL of them, even those not on TV -- sentence their babies to sad, tough lives because they (the moms) aren't old enough or mature enough to know how to raise a child and act in responsible manner.

One teen mom is arrested for felony domestic abuse, another loses custody because she's a spoiled, petulant, self-centered b.itch. This one had a kid with a pot head who never cared about her in the first place, another one takes her paycheck and gets a boob job. Please, STOP.

I can't deal with the mentality of teen parents, especially the so-called "moms". What makes any of them think they can properly raise a child while still in high school? Use birth control or put the baby up for adoption!

Our society has to stop trivializing this problem and go back to demanding that our children act responsibly. Stop being so cavalier about babies having babies!

harvey, i am sure you and your crew make a boat load off this junk, but i don't even think you are interested in the majority of these stories.

this site was cool when it was actual celebrity news laced with some wit. i would love to see the demographics for this site now.

best luck on your next venture harvey. i'm out.

this guy is actually a decent guy, he works, helps her out, everything. If she takes full custody, that's just a really ****ty thing to do.

Love Teen Mom, but Isaac is THE UGLIEST baby I have ever seen. We fast forward through their segment of the show, just so we don't have to see that kid!
