Catelynn Lowell just changed her last name from “Baltierra” back to “Lowell” on Instagram.
As her husband Tyler Baltierra continues to struggle with his biopolar disorder, the Teen Mom OG star has sparked divorce rumors after changing her Instagram moniker and traveling to Florida from Michigan without her longtime partner.
“Tyler is in Texas visiting his dad Butch and Catelynn is in Florida with Nova visiting her older sister,” Catelynn’s dad, David, told Radar Online on May 15.
While celebrating Mother’s Day separately, Tyler, who is known for his frequent activity on social media, failed to give his wife a shoutout. However, according to Catelynn’s dad, he hasn’t heard of any plans for divorce. That said, David also doesn’t know why Catelynn chose to change her last name on her Instagram page.
“Everything is good as far as I know,” he said. “I don’t know about the Instagram name change. I didn’t notice.”
UPDATE: Catelynn addressed the divorce reports on Instagram, writing: “@tylerbaltierramtv and I are not getting a divorce. Couples go through ups and downs that’s normal life. We are a solid couple that will work through anything life throws at us! Catelynn Baltierra.”
UPDATE #2 – Catelynn has just deleted the post defending her marriage from her Instagram page. A screenshot of what she posted is below.
In recent weeks, Tyler has shared a number of concerning social media posts with fans, the latest of which came just one week ago.
“It’s like my brain is so scattered that the moment I feel like I get what I’m after while climbing this ladder, this person in the mirror just smiles with laughter, then smacks me in the face, which starts to chase this envitable race to feeling broken, beaten, devalued, out of place, and now I’m all off pace,” he wrote on Instagram. “It just leaves me shattered and every time I think about my life, my brain becomes battered with only one question…does my life really even matter?!”
During the reunion special for Teen Mom OG season seven weeks ago, Tyler confirmed he was suffering from bipolar disorder but said that he did not want to treat his illness with prescription pills.
Prior to Tyler’s revelation about his mental health, his wife Catelynn spent several weeks, on and off, in a rehab facility in Arizona, where she was being treated for depression and suicidal thoughts.
