It seems like MTV’s Teen Mom 2 celebrities Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are at a crossroads. The couple has had their $454K home in Croswell, Michigan up for sale since August 11. That’s nearly three months, and yet, no one has sealed the deal to become the home’s new owner. According to The Sun, this has put the duo in a somewhat precarious financial situation.
They originally bought the house back in 2017 for $200K, boasting four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house even has historical significance, having been built in 1869 by Great Lakes Sea Captain George W. Smith. It comes furnished with modern amenities, such as a built-in freezer and jacuzzi tub. Despite these features, they have been unsuccessful in selling the property.
Adding a layer of complexity, the couple purchased another four-bedroom, four-bathroom home this January for $435K, putting them further into financial limbo. This new home is solely in Tyler Baltierra’s name, making him the official homeowner.
Why the financial strain? They’ve faced a federal tax lien of $321K back in 2019, which they only recently paid off in full. This wasn’t their first rodeo with financial hurdles; they were previously slammed with a tax lien of $535K in 2016, which they also managed to pay off by 2021. However, their methods of sourcing income have been a subject of controversy.
Teen Mom 2: The Lowell-Baltierra Financial Journey
No stranger to sourcing funds in unconventional ways, Catelynn Lowell has often used social media as a platform to request monetary gifts from fans. She’s even promised to follow those who sent her the most gifts via live streams. While this method has been met with criticism, it’s undeniable that Lowell is open to exploring alternative avenues for income.
Enter their most recent venture: OnlyFans. Yes, Catelynn and Tyler have made the leap to the platform, known for its mature content, to sell “services” to their fans. Tyler’s account already charges $30 a month for access to X-rated content, managed by none other than Catelynn herself.
The big question among fans now is whether this is a desperate grab for quick cash or a calculated business decision. Considering their past financial missteps and the failure to sell their Michigan home, it’s easy to see why some might lean towards the former.
However, it’s worth noting that other reality stars have successfully utilized OnlyFans as a lucrative income stream. Could this be their ticket out of financial turmoil? Only time will tell, but the fans and critics alike will be watching closely.
