As Starcasm reported, when the official cast list was released, he has a little bit of a bad background. Apparently, he had done some TikToks, and holes were noticed on his walls. Physical abuse allegations soon ensued though nothing has seemingly come of it. This may or may not play out in the new season. However, if viewers catch wind of it, this could cause him to be edited from some episodes.

Time will tell but as of now, Kylen’s Instagram says they are still together. Are you looking forward to the new season of Unexpected? Let us know in the comments.

  1. TLC. Why don’t you do a show about the success stories of teenage pregnancy. I personally can tell you it would be much more appealing and a happier show to watch.

  2. I can’t stand Jason he needs a good slap in the head the way he bosses her around. He.is a punk and the way he treats her parents if he was my son I would tell his girlfriend not to listen to him . He needs to get off his ass and grow up!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. I agree 100% but the parents should have stepped in a long time ago, he couldn’t be my son or my daughter’s boyfriend!
      He has put his child and the mother of his child in danger and she excepts it very sad.
      The producers along with his parents should also be ashamed showing him and his actions as if they are good and acceptable?
      Enough already!!

    2. I am so with you on that. Jason is nothing more but a punk ass that needs a good beating.. Someone needs to get to her while his ass isn’t in the room at the hospital and do some real talkin to ooen her eyes. I don’t understand why Kylan’s parents make her come back home!! She is only 17 so by law they could.. If I was her parent she would be back living under my roof. I would have been set his butt straight!!
