Just when it was starting to seem like nothing could break up former Teen Mom 2 star Nathan Griffith and his gym bae Ashley Lanhardt, we have confirmation that the couple have split.
The Ashley broke the news earlier today. “Ashley broke up with him,” an inside source tells The Ashley. And it sounds as though this isn’t just another bump in the couple’s rather rocky relationship road as The Ashley’s source indicates that the break up looks to be permanent.
“Nathan is not living in Florida anymore, and has moved back to Tennessee to live with his mom [Doris],” the source reveals.
If you’re a young single lady living in Tennessee with dreams of twiddling Nathan’s tiny man bun and replacing his mom as his official back shaver, I have some bad news. “Nathan is seeing another girl already,” the source says. (Doesn’t Brittany Walker, the girl who allegedly hooked up with David Eason and maybe Andrew Glennon, live in Tennessee?)
The source doesn’t give an exact date on when the couple split.
Nathan has already scrubbed his Instagram account of all photos and videos of Ashley. Nathan still remains on Ashley’s account, but her most recent post is from December. That post is a gallery of images that includes Nathan, his son Kaiser, and his daughter Emery.
“My love for these 3 runs so deep,” Ashley captioned the gallery.
More from Ashley:
After my dad passed I lost all desire to start a family of my own. Then these 3 special humans walk into my life unexpectedly, but right when I needed them most. You don’t have to be blood to be family, these two tiny humans are my kids. I love them both with every ounce of me. We are a family & I absolutely can’t imagine my life with out them. 💚 Hug your loved ones tight & cherish the little moments. #teamgriffith #family #happyholidays
Nathan has been quite vocal about his affection and admiration for Ashley as well. Here’s an image and message he shared in June of last year:
Ashley and Nathan began dating in the spring of 2017. This was just a few months after Nathan broke things off with his girlfriend Jessica Henry — thanks in part to his domestic violence arrest.
Ashley seemed well suited to handle the troubled reality star and veteran given the fact that she is a mental health therapist. She remained with Nathan through all sorts of troubles and drama.
The most recent trouble (that we know of) is a restraining order filed by a 26-year-old woman who alleges that Nathan began stalking and threatening her after the two met at a local lounge. The restraining order was filed in July of last year.
Since the restraining order was filed, things seemed to be relatively quiet in regards to the Nathan drama. He basically spent his time drinking and going on Instagram to preach about poverty being a choice, racism, and the Bible.
Here are just a few samples from the Starcasm archives of some of Nathan’s drama since he started dating Ashley:
