Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have been through a number of hardships with their family, and now Catelynn is opening up about it all.
The Teen Mom stars haven’t had the easiest year, but they truly do care about each and every member of their family. In an exclusive interview, Catelynn updates fans on everything they need to know about her family.
Catelynn Lowell spoke with Champion Daily to discuss how her father-in-law, Butch Baltierra, is doing. Last year, news broke that Butch was abusing substances again, and Catelynn was not hopeful.
“He drinks a couple beers here and there as well,” she said at the time. “He thinks he can manage all this but it will progress into something big again. That’s what this disease does.”
Today, Catelynn said she and her family just want Butch to be healthy.
“As our fans know, we have continuously tried with Butch in the past,” she told the outlet. “We would like nothing more than for him to be in a happy place- and, most importantly, a healthy place.”
“With that being said, unfortunately, things continue to be at a standstill,” Catelynn continued. “While we know that Butch is back in Texas, that is the extent of what we do know.”
She said that she is currently not speaking to Butch at all right now.
“Tyler occasionally texts with Butch, but we both essentially have no relationship with him,” she clarified. “While both Tyler and I will always wish the best for him, it comes down to the fact that you can’t continue to try to help someone who doesn’t want to be helped.”
“There’s only so many times we can try to get Butch into a rehab and try to get him healthy before we reach a point of just saying it can’t be our problem anymore,” Catelynn told Champion Daily.
“We will always want the best for Butch, but as I’ve more or less said in the past, Butch has to want the best for Butch. And until he does, he won’t ever be able to fully attain sobriety and happiness,” the Teen Mom star said. “We continue to hope that one day there will be a point where we can have a healthy relationship with him and that things will be okay… but for now, things remain status quo.”
Catelynn then went on to discuss the relationship her children have with their grandfather.
