Earlier in the month, In Touch reported that Teen Mom Catelynn Lowell was pregnant after a “close friend” contacted the magazine. Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra denied the story almost immediately. We all thought, Wow! Pregnant or not, how could a friend sell out Catelynn and Tyler like that? A friend didn’t – but April Baltierra, Catelynn’s own mother, did! More after the jump.
Apparently, Catelynn’s mom, April Baltierra, is the one who was behind the bogus pregnant news. April talked a friend of the family, Jamie Pyrzewski, into contacting In Touch with the story. April even provided Jamie with false medical documents to “support” her lie.
Catelynn immediately cleared the air, insisting she is not pregnant. Only today are we learning that April is the mastermind behind the whole ordeal.
“I’m not pregnant,” Catelynn tells In Touch. “My mom lied.”
“I think it’s because she has no money…so she’s trying to sell her daughter,” Catelynn says. “I love my mom, but it’s frustrating.” Tyler adds, “We feel violated. I’m shocked that she would go to this length. It just crosses the line.”
As for Jaime, the “close friend,” Catelynn says, “I used to see her once in a while when we were kids. I don’t even like her.”
April obviously has issues, but to sell out your own daughter… wow. April denies doing anything wrong. She tells In Touch now, “Catelynn was fully aware of the story. She knew all about this.”
Catelynn wants her fans to know that she’s very sorry.
