Where in the world is Luis Miguel?
Teen Mom 2‘s Briana DeJesus’ newest baby daddy has snown zero interest in being a daddy to his baby, leaving fans and viewers scratching their heads.
In a new interview, Briana tries to explain Luis’ absence … and reveals exactly how little contact Luis has had with his daughter.
Briana DeJesus is a very dramatic addition to the Teen Mom 2 cast.
She gives her daughters unique, thematic names that nonetheless don’t look like they’d be disqualifying on a job application.
(It’s not fair, but we know that employers look at names — but Stella is a normal name, and Nova is benign enough despite being unique)
But when it comes to baby daddies … Briana sure can pick them.
Devoin Austin, who is at least biologically Nova’s father, has been called out as an absentee father more than once by Briana.
In fact, Briana just recently blasted Devoin for stealing and reposting photos to pretend that he was there for Nova’s milestones, making himself look like a decent father to his social media followers.
(Briana says that he shows up where MTVs cameras are … but that that’s about it)
Now, at least, Devoin has an excuse for not being there … we guess.
Because Devoin Austin is back behind bars. Drug charges will do that.
And then there’s Luis, Stella’s dad.
In an interview with RadarOnline, Briana DeJesus says that Luis Miguel has abandoned their daughter.
“He has not seen Stella, he has not helped with Stella, and he hasn’t really asked about Stella.”
As hard as it is to imagine someone not wanting to meet their own baby, we know that it happens all of the time.
That doesn’t make it any less sad.
“He’s pretty much non-existent right now. He disappeared. He totally vanished. The moment I had Stella he went MIA.”
Briana says that she just can’t understand Luis’ behavior, especially considering that he had previously been so opposed to the idea of giving up Stella for adoption.
“You have a daughter… What’s going on? He just is not right in the head.”
Briana offers up what sounds like a guess — that perhaps the Teen Mom 2 cameras are what’s deterring him.
“I can understand where he’s coming from because MTV is always around when he is around.”
That doesn’t sound like a real deterrent, and we’ll get to that in a moment.
“It makes him uncomfortable. We’re all yelling at him cause he’s not doing what he’s supposed to do. But that’s no excuse. It sucks.”
She’s right that it’s no excuse.
But also? Teen Mom 2 airtime means collecting a Teen Mom 2 paycheck.
For others — for Devoin Austin, right up until he was taken into police custody — it’s a huge motivator for them to show up.
Even if Luis is just camera-shy, that’s not a valid excuse for neglecting his responsibilities to Stella.
Especially because, again, he was apparently insistent that Briana not give up Stella for adoption.
Despite all of that, Briana isn’t cutting off her baby daddies from their kids.
“Whenever they want to see the babies they can come.”
We don’t imagine that she’s holding her breath, though.
Briana DeJesus shot down Javi Marroquin dating rumors, claiming that she’s too busy being a mom.
Being a single mom with two children and being a reality star?
We’re exhausted just thinking about that. So we’d be willing to believe that she’s really avoiding the dating scene.
