As this MTV series became more and more popular, it was inevitable that something like this would happen.
Josh Smith, the teen dad accused of domestic violence against his baby’s mother and 16 And Pregnant star, Jennifer Del Rio, claims she got pregnant just so she could appear on the show.
According to Smith, Jennifer told Josh they didn’t need to use protection because she was already pregnant. But, in actuality, she was not.
“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. She lied to me and my parents for 3 months saying she was pregnant. She wanted so desperately to be on 16 and Pregnant.”
Doesn’t MTV do some sort of screening process before picking these girls? But I suppose the crazier, the better.
Do you believe these claims? How destructive do you believe the series is to teenagers?
