Arianna’s episode aired last night, and she’s received mixed reviews from people. Some were claiming that she was too harsh towards her baby’s father, Maurice Lamar Rumph Jr. Others were saying that she was justified in feeling that she deserved an apology. One thing that I didn’t see coming was that Arianna, who was shown as a relatively good girl who got put in a bad situation by getting pregnant as a teen, was actually arrested just two months after her son was born!
I posted earlier that I was really frustrated that I couldn’t find very much information on Arianna. Sources close to Arianna have revealed that she has been trying to stay out of the spotlight and that she is doing her best to avoid publicity that comes from being on 16 & Pregnant. She has deleted her Twitter account, and it appears that her personal Facebook page hasn’t been used for several months.
One thing that we did learn through our search is that Arianna Hazel was arrested in January of this year for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. At this time, Arianna’s son, Aiden, would have been only two months old.
It does appear that this is Arianna’s first run in with the police, but it leads me to think that this incident might be the reason that she’s keeping so quiet on social media accounts. We’ve been told by several sources that Arianna’s producer from MTV has created a fan page for her, but that the girl doesn’t want to receive any backlash from people who viewed her episode, so she’s choosing to keep it under wraps for the time being.
It also appears that Maurice has a record of his own. According to reports online, Maurice was found guilty of shoplifting in January 2012 at the age of 18, and he was put on probation for around 10 months.
