“You’re salty that Javi is moving on,” Briana tells Kailyn in the trailer. “I don’t give a s—t if he moves on,” Kailyn responds.
Jenelle is also shown complaining that her mother is trying to take her son away from her. “She’s putting this guy again over her children!” Barbara Evans explains.
As fans of the series well know, Jenelle and Barbara have been involved in a long-standing custody battle with one another over her eight-year-old son Jace. Meanwhile, Jenelle also has two older children, the youngest of whom she shares with husband David Eason.
During production on season 8B, MTV announced via Twitter that they would no longer be working with David due to a shocking rant against the LGBT community.
Official statement from @MTVPress: David Eason’s personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV. With six weeks left of production on ‘Teen Mom 2,’ effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him.

Although David was reportedly fired, he was featured in the trailer for the new season and has suggested that the network only removed him from three episodes of the show.
Teen Mom 2 Season 8B premieres on Monday, May 7 at 9 p.m. on MTV.
