After nearly a year of weird photoshoots and plenty of talk about their futures together, Leah Messer and Jaylan Mobley announced on Tuesday that they are ending their engagement.
The Teen Mom: The Next Chapter stars— who got engaged in August after a year of dating— announced via matching Instagram messages that they have broken up. This news comes as a surprise, as Leah and Jaylan appeared together (and looked very happy, according to The Ashley‘s sources who were at the wedding) just two weeks ago at Cheyenne Floyd and Zach Davis‘ wedding. Leah and Jaylan also recently bought a home together and announced that they were starting to renovate it.

“While the last year has been tremendously exciting for both of us, we’ve realized that it’s best we walk separate paths,” Leah and Jaylan wrote in the post’s caption. “We are so grateful for the lessons, growth, and memories we’ve had in this relationship. So many of you have watched our love story unfold, and we hope that you’ll continue to watch our stories while we move forward as friends.
“We will forever have love and respect for each other, and we ask for privacy as we refocus and transition out of this chapter together.”
Leah and Jaylan did not state why they were breaking up suddenly, or what will happen to the home they bought together.
In the minutes after the breakup announcement went live, Leah and Jaylan both scrubbed their Instagram accounts of their photos together.
Stay tuned…The Ashley will update this story when more info is available…
