Tomorrow night MTV will be airing the much anticipated new episode of 16 & Pregnant featuring Jennifer Del Rio. Her explosive relationship with baby-daddy Josh Smith has been hard to miss especially following a recent he said, she said altercation between the two that left Smith’s face bloodied.
This latest incident occurred last week with Josh claiming he was struck by Jennifer while Jennifer has argued that he hit himself to set her up. Josh was granted a temporary restraining order which doesn’t allow Jennifer within 500ft of him.
The accusations are mounting in this battle and Josh’s latest claims are reigniting the argument over whether or not the Teen Mom franchise on MTV encourages teen pregnancy.
According to court papers filed by Smith when obtaining the restraining order he stated that:
“She was giving me sonogram pictures … that she claimed was ‘our baby’ when in actually [sic] it was her friend’s sonogram pictures she was copying. She lied to me and my parents for 3 months saying she was pregnant. She wanted so desperately to be on ‘Sixteen and Pregnant’.”
Jennifer is currently seeking a restraining order against Josh based on her claim that he punched himself.
