TEEN Mom star Briana DeJesus’ ex Devoin Austin brushed off his recent money troubles in new photos after revealing that he has a “gambling addiction.”
The 29-year-old posted a series of photos on Instagram sporting the jersey of former Phoenix Suns basketball player, Steve Nash.
Devoin supported the current Brooklyn Nets coach by posing for multiple pics showing off the jersey.
In one snap, the father-of-one smiled at the camera donning a black baseball cap and several gold chains around his neck.
The nighttime photoshoot appeared to be taken in a parking lot underneath lamp posts to showcase the attire.
He captioned the post: “A couple n****s yea dey changed on me. I went to Kevin Dropped chains on em!! #ThankYouComeAgain”
Fellow Teen Mom star, Cory Wharton chimed in in the comments writing: “Nash Jersey goes crwzyyy 🔥”
The happy post comes after the MTV star reached out to fans for help in battling a gambling addiction.
“I got a severe gambling problem and need serious help. Any recommendations?” 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.
It comes shortly after Devoin opened up about needing “a financial advisor” as he revealed he spent $700 on Yeezy trainers.
‘NOT PAYING ENOUGH’
Devoin made the comments after Briana, 27, claimed he doesn’t pay enough child support for their ten-year-old daughter Nova.
The MTV star has been open about her concerns in the past, though the exes got into a yelling match over the matter during the recent Teen Mom 2 reunion.
Following a sweet moment in which Briana thanked Devoin for treating her daughter Stella, four, as his own, the reunion quickly took a dramatic turn when they began to fight over child support.
Briana shares her youngest daughter with ex Luis Hernandez, who has been mostly absent from Stella’s life.
When Briana criticized Devoin for not financially supporting their daughter, 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 encouraged her to “have a number set” for him to pay each month, though she responded: “Every time we speak out our financial situation, you get so 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.
Nova’s dad 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!”
Back in August, Devoin ripped MTV for depicting him as a “deadbeat dad” claiming that the audience is no longer “buying” this depiction of him.
Devoin shared a message saying: “Just sending you a little appreciation and support. We have had the narrative that you are a deadbeat shoved down our throats since the moment we were introduced to you on TV.
Shortly after, Briana praised her child’s father for stepping up “stepping up” despite her previous accusations about not paying enough child support.
Briana shared in a lengthy since-expired post: “ Gotta say something! People change. People grown. Y’a’ll cant ALWAYS hold me accountable for the things I’ve said in the past.
