Teen Mom 2 alum Brooke Wehr’s fiancé Joby Barr has been accused of grooming his alleged victim and demanding “she send nude photos” before they had sex.
Barr is engaged to Wehr — who was previously engaged to Leah Messer’s ex-husband Jeremy Calvert — and was arrested on Friday, November 5 on four counts of sexual battery against a 17-year-old former student at a high school he worked at.
The 31-year-old was released on Tuesday, November 9 on $10,000 bond and ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim. He pleaded not guilty to charges.
The student, now 18, claimed “Throughout 2020 her coach Joby Barr began snapchatting her and through the messaging platform they began to talk more and more frequently.”
“This continued until approximately November of 2020 when Coach Barr suggested they play a game via snapchat,” the report continued. “Coach Barr explained to her that he would start the game and send her a photo, of which she would have to mimic his state of dress as well as pose and then return the photo.”
The teenage victim claimed Barr “sent a photo of himself with no pants on,” although stressed nothing “vulgar” was seen in the snap. She told Barr the game and photo were “inappropriate” and called their tryst off.
The duo eventually reconnected earlier this year when he was coaching the track team at the school and their alleged sexual relationship began again. “The conversations led to the point that [the student] and Coach Barr began meeting and going to Coach Barr’s residence. Once at Coach Barr’s residence they proceeded to have consensual sex, this occurred on four separate occasions.”
The alleged victim explained she now decided to speak up after realizing “he was grooming her into the sexual relationship and taking advantage of the situation,” and alleged there is “another possible victim.”
