The multiple arrests of Teen Mom dad Bar Smith have revealed something rather unexpected about the reality star: his name isn’t actually Bar Smith. Ashley Jones’ husband’s real name is Bariki Elimu LockettSmith, as evidenced by jail and court records. That is a pretty unique moniker, and certainly there must be a story behind it, right? Right! Bar’s mom, Shenandoah “Shen” Williams, posted an explanation for Bar’s real name in an Instagram story post — and it’s really something!

It’s been two weeks since Teen Mom: The Next Chapter co-stars Briana DeJesus and Ashley Jones (and their mothers) reportedly got kicked off the set of Teen Mom Family Reunion after getting into a HUGE fight that involved thrown furniture. The young ladies have continued their spat on social media, including Briana’s claim that Ashley is currently pregnant. Ashley has since confirmed that she is pregnant, and earlier today she revealed that part of the reason she didn’t want to announce it is because she was involved in a car accident and was worried that she might miscarry.
Teen Mom dad Bariki “Bar” Lockettsmith’s tour of the western United States via prison bus has come to an end. Ashley Jones’ husband has been extradited from Nevada to California where he is currently being held on $100,000 bond stemming from his previous charges for DUI and willful discharge of a firearm in a negligent manner.
MTV is all set to premiere it’s new combined series Teen Mom: The Next Chapter next week, but it appears that at least one cast member will not be tuning in. According to jail records, Ashley Jones’ husband Bariki “Bar” Smith is currently in jail in Nevada and being held without bond.
One day after Teen Mom 2 star Ashley Jones announced her graduation from community college, her fiance Bar was arrested on a felony gun charge!
Congratulations are in order for new Teen Mom 2 addition Ashley Jones! The 24-year-old reality star just revealed that she has graduated from community college with an associate of science degree! The positive news from Ashley comes after Bar revealed late last year that he passed the GED.
Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant (and now Teen Mom 2) dad Bariki Smith received some bad news earlier this year in regards to his brother Troy Seales’ murder conviction appeal.
Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is struggling a bit in the ratings, and MTV looks to be pulling out all the stops to get people to tune in! In a new commercial for Tuesday night’s episode, we see Teen Mom OG star Cheyenne Floyd making a crossover appearance as she offers Ashley Jones co-parenting advice.
While other cast members and producers from Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant were posting a text graphic begging people to tune in, Ashley Jones shook her damn head and told them all to hold her beer as she went about drumming up ratings the old fashioned way! Actually, it was more like she said: “Hold Bar’s beer.”
Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant grandma Shenandoah “Shen” Williams is no stranger to spilling a little behind-the-scenes tea, and this week was no exception as she revealed to her social media followers that her son Bar was arrested last month in California after an altercation with Ashley. Shen says the whole thing started because Ashley was driving while intoxicated, but resulted in Bar being hit with numerous charges, including assault and child endangerment!
Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant grandma Shen shocked a handful of fans this summer when she announced that she and MTV had buried the hatchet over her claims that the network was racist, and that she would be returning to the show again. The repaired bridge lasted all of a hot minute before Shen burned it down once more with new claims that MTV puts the children stars of the show in “unsafe situations for ratings.” She also said that Bar and Ashley’s split and co-parenting was just a sham. Or at least I think that’s what she said.
Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant couple Ashley Jones and Bariki “Bar” Smith confirmed last week that they have officially split up, but apparently they actually broke up months ago! Ashley posted a Detective Pikachu themed photo with rapper 600 Breezy earlier today, and in the comments she not only seemed to confirm that she and the rapper are dating, but also that she and Bar broke up way back in December!
