She says he kidnapped the couple’s twins and “assaulted himself.”
He says she got knocked up on purpose — just to get on television.
Ah, there is nothing quite like young love!
Meet Jennifer Del Rio, 17, and her baby daddy Joshua Smith, 19 – the stars of tonight’s drama-filled episode of MTV’s “16 and Pregnant.”
The parents of twin boys Josh and Noah – who were born prematurely at just over four pounds each – have become tabloid superstars since the network released a sensational trailer showing an enraged Del Rio pummeling Smith on the side of a road in rural Florida.
Now there’s more footage – this time of the events leading up to the fight and Smith’s subsequent arrest on domestic violence charges. In the new video, Jennifer decides its time to end their relationship. Josh calls her a “stupid ass bitch” then dumps her on the side of the road, speeding away with the boys in the back seat.
Here’s what’s happened since then:
MARCH: Jennifer requests a restraining order, claiming Smith has been “harrasing and threatened (and) saying he will have [her] raped.” She also claims he “attempted to kidnap her children” and says she is now “frightened for her life and children’s life.”
APRIL 2: Jennifer posts a message on her Facebook page revealing that baby Noah is in the hospital:
“Ok, so I know everyone is wanting to know what is wrong with noah. So, I guess Ill shear it with yall… He has two inlarged ventricles in his head and a hole in his heart. They said either of them shouldnt cause any issues. We have to take noah back in 3 months to see if the hole has closed though.Besides all that hes a healthy baby.”
APRIL 19: Police respond to a domestic violence call at Josh’s house. Josh claims that Jennifer socked him in the face and ripped his shirt when he tried (again) to break up with her. Neither is arrested, so Jennifer quickly takes to Facebook:
“Here’s the truth,Josh lied to the cops. He kidnapped my children. He got angry bc I wouldn’t let them stay with him for one night! He punched him self he riped his shirt.i am 90 ibs. One I cant beat up a 300 il guy. He lied under oath && that will be proved. Thank youo – Jenn”
APRIL 21: Josh files his own restraining order against Jennifer, calling her a compulsive liar and alleging she tricked him into getting her pregnant so she could be on television.
“She was giving me sonogram pictures … that she claimed was ‘our baby’ when in actually [sic] it was her friend’s sonogram pictures she was copying,” he said in the court docs. “She lied to me and my parents for 3 months saying she was pregnant. She wanted so desperately to be on ‘Sixteen and Pregnant’.”
The crazy couple are due back in court May 2. Stay tuned.
