Devoin, 29, took to Instagram on Friday to share four snaps of himself posing in a Charlotte Hornets jersey.

The first photo caught the Teen Mom 2 star hunched over as he looked down at the ground, which was followed by a snap of Devoin staring directly at the camera with his arms crossed at his chest.

The third photo captured Deovin mid-movement as he showed off the back of the jersey to the camera, while the slides concluded with Devoin smiling for a selfie next to a woman named KayKay.

He simply captioned the post: “M O T I V A T O R. Love you sis @leprettyyonee.”

Devoin shares 10-year-old daughter Nova with ex Briana DeJesus, 27.

The Teen Mom 2 star also shares daughter Stella, four, with ex Luis Hernandez.

However, Devoin has made an active effort to be part of Briana’s youngest daughter’s life due to Luis’ absence.

Despite Devoin’s recent upbeat post, the MTV star previously reached out to fans for help in August as he battles a gambling addiction.

“I got a severe gambling problem and need serious help. Any recommendations?” he asked his followers alongside a red SOS emoji.

The TV personality added: “Please help me. 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.”

Additionally, Devoin opened up about needing “a financial advisor” as he revealed he spent $700 on Yeezy trainers.


His money problems have been heavily documented both on Teen Mom 2 and on social media.

Briana previously claimed he doesn’t pay enough child support for Nova.

The mom of two 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.”

Briana  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!”
