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!

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.
It was announced last month that Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant star Jade Cline will be replacing the recently fired Jenelle Eason on Teen Mom 2. But, according to Jade’s Young and Pregnant co-star Ashley Jones, Jade wasn’t the network’s top choice! Plus, Ashley spends a few days with her new rapper beau 600 Breezy, and Bar’s mom Shen buries the hatchet with MTV and returns to filming!
It sounds like another over-the-top drama-filled day for Teen Mom Young and Pregnant couple Bariki “Bar” Smith and his fiancee Ashley Jones as she claims to have called the police on him while his mother Shen claims that Ashley had him arrested!
Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant dad Bariki “Bar” Smith has been very open about the fact that he was brought up in a very rough environment, surrounded by the infamous gang violence that is so prevalent in and around Oakland. To illustrate just how bad it was, Bar shared a very graphic photo on Instagram of his gunshot wound after being shot in the forearm three years ago.
