We have just begun the new season of Teen Mom OG--but some drama has gone down since the new episodes were filmed. During last week's podcast of Coffee Convos, Kail Lowry and her co-host Lindsie Chrisley interviewed Tyler Baltierra, who confirmed that his father, Butch, has relapsed after celebrating over one year of sobriety.

Tyler and his wife, Catelynn Lowell, said that fans will still see Butch on Teen Mom OG. According to The Ashley, Tyler explained, "This season you’ll see me go down there a couple of times. He lives in Austin and he got out of rehab he did his sober living, all that stuff.”

Butch has struggled with addiction for many years and had admitted to using crack cocaine. But last season, Butch entered a rehab in Austin, Texas, and in Nov. 2018, he celebrated one year of sobriety.

Tyler and Catelynn mentioned that Butch is dating a new woman, Caroline, who has brought some conflict to the family dynamic.

As reported by The Ashley, Amber, Tyler's sister, opened up to MTV about her past sexual assault at the hands of her mother's previous boyfriend and in response, Caroline sent Amber some "disgusting" messages, Catelynn said.

Allegedly, Caroline has even tried to get on the podcast. “[Caroline] went wild and, I’ll tell you right now, that’s the sign of relapse. So my dad dating a woman who is going to reach out to you guys, probably in a crazy, drunken state [is not good],” Tyler said.

Amber is still sober, and Tyler shared that he recently gave her a one-year sobriety chip. While Butch is still struggling, Tyler says that he is so proud of his sister.
