Tyler Baltierra’s Father Butch Is Still Struggling With His Sobriety


It has been a tough few months for Tyler Baltierra.

The Teen Mom OG star’s wife, Catelynn Lowell, just left treatment after experiencing suicidal thoughts, and it sounds like his father, Butch, is still struggling with his sobriety.

Though he tried to be sober for some time, he admitted to relapsing after going to prison.

“Butch isn’t sober. He struggles with it,” a source told Radar Online.

Though he reportedly is drinking again, he’s at least handling himself a lot better.

“He talks about it, he sees someone, he doesn’t disappear for days at a time,” the source revealed.

In a sneak peek of this week’s episode, the father of one opens up about his relationship with his own father.

“I think I’ve just come to the conclusion that I’m always going to feel angry about it,” he tells Catelynn.

“When I was younger, I used to like calling him a crackhead. I used to like seeing him angry about that.”

He continues, “You can’t help it. You just get angry and you remove yourself from the situation.

“We know what’s going on here. We’re in control of what’s happening in our environment.”

Many Teen Mom fans know Butch served four years in prison for larceny, breaking and entering, and home invasion.

He was then released in April 2015, but he got in trouble again just one year after his release.

Tyler also opened up to Dr. Drew Pinsky about his father’s behavior.
