Rilah and Anthony had been together since middle school. So it was really rough when her family decided to move and separate the two. At the same time, they discovered that they were expecting a baby. Rilah was just seventeen while Anthony was eighteen which made them perfect for Season 3 of the hit TLC reality series. Anthony was really excited about becoming a father and started building things for their baby. Then it all flipped and he questioned if the baby was actually his. Ultimately, it was discovered he was the father and they worked on becoming a family from that point on.


Unfortunately, the couple’s happiness started to fade when Anthony faced domestic violence charges after Rilah had bruises on her face in 2019. His mother posted the bail but that was just the beginning of a downward spiral. In early 2021, Anthony was arrested for stealing his grandmother’s car and shooting at his ex-stepfather’s home. The November 2021 charge was again for domestic violence between him and a male family member. So, what did Anthony do this time?
