Teen Mom Young and Pregnant Kiaya Elliott and ex X'Zayveon who is in prison

On Monday night’s episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, Kiaya Elliott spoke with her daughter Amour’s father, X’Zayveon, about when he might be getting out of prison.
“You said you might get out in a year,” Kiaya mentioned.
“I didn’t go up for parole yet,” X’Zayveon replied. “When I go up for parole, that’s when I will get my answer back. It’s looking good though.”
As we previously reported, X’Zayveon was up for parole in July of 2019 and April of 2020. He was rejected both times. Scroll down to find out how his most recent parole hearing went on July 19 of this year.

“Why did they deny it last time?” Kiaya asked.

“Because I haven’t been locked up that long,” X’Zayveon explained.
“Oh, you gotta serve a certain amount of your sentence,” Kiaya said.
X’Zayveon said “Yeah” and added that he has to serve “at least two and a half” years before they will let him out.

Later in the conversation, Kiaya told X’Zayveon that she hoped that let him out. “I ain’t got that long left,” he assured her. “I hope I get out too.”
