'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.

Uhh Helloooo - This Innature young man is so disrespectful and wound extrememly tight!! His momma needs to set him free and QUIT TEACHING HIM TO BE SOO ABUSIVE TO THE baby momma!! That's where he gets it!! He isnt even smart enough to accept the fact that she IS doing this BY HERSELF!! He didn't have the B@((S to encourage her to be on her own - INSTEAD ....

I've seen two episodes of this show and that kid just seems evil. Crazy controlling and he gets it from his parents.

Moral of the Story: USE A CONDOM

Seriously, people should use these people as a example to be more picky about who you open your legs for. BE PICKY about the people you sleep with and if you don't want to be choosy, that's fine, it's your choice, but at least, for the love of everything holy, USE A FRIGGIN CONDOM.

These teenagers have unprotected sex, get pregnant, get a TV show, get "famous" and then we (meaning, ME, someone who doesn't care that they were too dumb to use protection) has to hear about it all the time. Stupid decision. boom. Stupid decision. boom. Stupid decsion..over and over again. That's all it is. One dumbass choice after another with these people and really, the only ones who suffer are the babies that are exploited for MTV. All the money these people are making will be long gone before that baby ever gets a chance to benefit. And the parents of these teens benefit just as much. I mean, afterall, the parents are the ones who have to sign the releases for their teens to even appear on this show since they're not old enough to do it themselves. The parents are clearly getting paid too.. woo hoo.. getting paid to show everyone that you FAILED to teach your child the value of self respect and using protection if you're going to have sex at 14, 15 and 16 years old. Good job.

So yeah, once again, I'll say it loud and proud...

Because having teenage unprotected sex and creating children with lowlife is fine, but smoking weed, well, that's just plain wrong.

Since the guy is a Mexican, I wouldn't call him White Trash. More like Hispanic Trash, the girl on the other hand is just trash period.

those are two seriously unattractive people and the baby looks just like them. I can't watch their segments either. They look like frog people, all of them.

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!

Lets Be Honest    

Sorry but the Riveria family DOES need to be criticized. The Riveria parents, with their holier than now attitude, need to LOOK IN THE MIRROR.

It was YOUR SON that didn't use a condom. It is YOUR SON that hasn't taken responsibility for HIS child. It is YOUR SON that is buying and smoking weed and not being a father. It is YOUR SON that isn't paying child support. It is YOUR SON that has no ambition to go to college or start a carreer.

So to the Riveria parents, great job you did raising your son. Your family must be proud. Try looking in the mirror if you can.

Well, she apparently thought it was ok to break up with him, stay at his house with him and his parents, and start dating again. I know it's been a year now, and she has an overwhelming need to get impregnated again, but she should at least wait until she gets her own place. None of these teen moms have turned out to be even passable parents. Babies shouldn't have a never-ending stream of "fathers" and "mothers" in their lives. Get a hotel room! You just don't bring strangers into the house, no matter how horny you may be. And be realistic. Young men don't want to take responsibility for some other guy's mistake.
