Devoin, who is the ex-boyfriend Briana DeJesus – with whom he shares daughter Nova, ten – reached out to fans for help.

“I got a severe gambling problem an dneed serious help. Any reccomendations?” he asked his following alongside a red SOS emoji.

“Please help me,” Devoin went on in the series of posts. “Don’t get me wrong, I’m not like selling my s*** to gamble or that f***ed up.”

“But I’m noticing I spend vacations in the casino and that really bothers me. I just can’t get right,” he concluded the honest admission.

Fans of the MTV show were left worried by Devoin’s post and took to Instagram to think of ways to help the Teen Mom 2 star.

One fan offered up advice: “I’m sure he can find a place in Florida they have tonnes of recovery programmes, I looked 2 up already.”

“Well done on him reaching out and being open and honest about his struggles,” another wrote. “I hope he comes out better on the other end.”

It comes shortly after Devoin opened up about needing “a financial advisor” as he revealed he spent $700 on Yeezy trainers.

Devoin made the comments after Briana claimed he doesn’t pay enough child support for his young daughter Nova.

The MTV star has been open about her concerns in the past, with the exes got into a yelling match over the matter in recent MTV scenes.

Briana thanked Devoin for treating her daughter Stella, four, as his own, before their reunion took a turn when they began to fight over money.

When Briana criticized Devoin for not financially supporting Nova, he insisted he’s been helping out since getting a new job.

However, Briana argued: “But now that you’re able to do it, you should do it because the last time you helped financially, as far as a bill, was a while ago- was a few months ago.”  

He told her to “have a number set” to pay her, though she responded: “Every time we speak out our financial situation, you get offensive.”

Devoin then called out Briana for her own expensive spending habits and she told him to “shut the f**k up” as they yelled over each other.

He complained she was able to talk more than him, while Briana responded: “Every time we talk about money, he gets so flustered about it.”

The Teen Mom 2 star then defended herself for buying expensive shoes, shouting: “Listen, I’ve been taking care of Nova before MTV.

“Let’s remember, Teen Mom 2 was cancelled for a while and I had my 9-5 job. Who the f**k was taking care of her then? Not f**king MTV. Me!

“The thing is, I can buy these shoes cause guess what? My f**king kids bills and f**king paid in advance ahead of time. I’m never late on my bills.

“You can buy a $500 pair of f**king jeans but you can’t do anything else for Nova except buy her a f**king pair of sneakers. You don’t do what you need to do as a father. You do the bare minimum.”

Briana continued to rip her baby daddy as she shouted: “You’re not a real man!”


After Briana accused her baby daddy of being a “liar” when he said he doesn’t “pop bottles in the club,” he got up and exited the set.

Devoin exclaimed that he was “done” as he took his mic off and left the studio.

The fight is not the first time the exes have argued over finances, as a similar fight took place during the previous season’s reunion.


However, it doesn’t seem that Devoin has learned his lesson.

Earlier this month, Briana’s baby daddy took to his Instagram Story to share a video of himself gambling at a casino.

After zooming in on a screen to show that he had won, Devoin revealed that he was holding a stack of cash in his hand.

The 29-year-old continued to hint at the way he spends money by posting another Instagram Story the following day.

While sharing that he was listening to Wacka Flacka Flame’s Magic City, Devoin quoted the lyrics by writing: “Supposed to pay my rent but I’m up in Magic City throwin it!”
