But after their split, fans were left wondering why Leah and Jaylan broke up. Their relationship, from the very beginning and first meeting, played out on the show.

Why did Leah and Jaylan from 'Teen Mom: The Next Chapter' break up?

Following Jaylan's decision to move closer to Leah and her daughters in West Virginia, he bought a new house for them to move into. They even got engaged and talked about having a baby together to expand the family.

Leah's daughters grew close to Jaylan too. Unfortunately, none of that was enough to keep the couple together,

In a since-deleted Instagram statement, Leah revealed in October 2022 that she and Jaylan had mutually decided to part ways.

"While the last year has been tremendously exciting for both of us, we've realized that it's best we walk separate paths," the post said. "We are so grateful for the lessons, growth, and memories we've had in this relationship."

Not long after, amid rumors of infidelity, Leah tweeted that she and Jaylan were "refocusing and transitioning into better days ahead."

According to reports from The Sun, an unnamed source revealed that Leah suspected Jaylan of cheating on her. But, because Leah hasn't come out to support those claims and there's no evidence, it's all part of the speculation that comes with fans wondering what happened.

It's possible that Leah and Jaylan just saw themselves on different paths and they realized, after moving in together and starting their life together, that they weren't right for each other after all. Whatever the case may be, Leah seems to be living her best life with her daughters, so she has plenty to keep her busy.

Jaylan bought Leah a house prior to their split.

In April 2022, Jaylan and Leah revealed that Jaylan bought her a house. But Jaylan faced criticism when the news broke that he hadn't put Leah's name on the deed initially, as he claimed to on-camera on Teen Mom: The Next Chapter.

In December 2022, Leah shared in her Instagram stories that Jaylan "made it seem on-camera as though it was already complete and done" in reference to adding her name to the legal deed to the house. In reality, according to her, he did it after he claimed to.

Leah also said on Instagram that Jaylan asking her step-father for permission to propose to her was strictly for cameras and that he did it after he already proposed to her and she said yes.

It looks like there are a number of small reasons why Leah and Jaylan broke up, bot unlike some fans believe, there wasn't one big dramatic event.
