Teen Mom star Brooke Wehr's fiance Joby Barr 'groomed' teen victim & 'demanded nude pics' before sexual trysts, cops say

TEEN Mom 2 star Brooke Wehr's fiance Joby Barr "groomed" his alleged teen victim and "demanded she send nude photos" before their sexual trysts, cops say.

Brooke, 31, is Teen Mom 2 dad Jeremy Calvert’s ex-fiancee and has appeared on past episodes of the MTV show. 


Brooke’s fiance, Joby Barr, was arrested on Friday on four counts of sexual battery, which are 3rd-degree felonies.

In the police report exclusively obtained by The Sun, the Superintendent of the high school Joby worked at contacted authorities on September 24, 2021 regarding the coach’s alleged relationship with a student. 

The student, now 18, disclosed that when she was 17 years old, her basketball coach, Joby, allegedly “groomed” her and “had sex with her on four separate occasions.”

The incident report 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. 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.”

He sent a photo of himself with no pants on, though nothing “vulgar” was seen in the photo, according to the alleged victim. 

She told the coach that the game and photo was “inappropriate” and they stopped messaging. 

But the two allegedly began talking again in the Spring of 2021 when he was coaching track. 

The incident report alleged: “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.”

According to the report, she came forward because she “now realized that he was grooming her into the sexual relationship and taking advantage of the situation.”

She also claimed there is “another possible victim.”

The Superintendent claimed Joby was not actively coaching at the school because of intermission between the teams he coached when the alleged sexual relationship occurred, though he was still on contract with the school as an employed coach.

SHOCKING ARREST

As The Sun previously reported, court papers claimed Joby “did engage in sexual conduct” with his 18-year-old female student while he was a “teacher, administrator, coach or other person in authority employed by or serving in a school.”  

Joby was jailed until his arraignment on Tuesday, where he pleaded not guilty. 

A clerk for the Belmont County Jail confirmed to The Sun that he posted $10,000 bond after the hearing. 

Joby has a jury trial set for January 11, 2022.

Belmont County Prosecutor Kevin Flanagan told WTRF: “It is a situation that Ohio law recognizes as a relationship that just can not exist, but it’s not an indictment against the entire school. It is just one individual. 

“There is no other evidence in any way shape or form to indicate that anybody else had anything to do with this.”

He faces up to five years in prison per count. 

BROOKE'S NIGHTMARE

The alleged relationship with the student occurred during his relationship with Brooke, as she posted her first photo with Joby in July 2020. 

Brooke announced her engagement to Joby, 31, in August. 

She captioned photos of her engagement ring: "Still in awe over this past weekend. I can’t wait to marry my best friend."

Their last photo together was on September 8. 

Though it is unclear if they are still together, Brooke hasn’t deleted their photos from her Instagram page. 

TEEN MOM 2 STINT

Brooke dated Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer’s ex-husband Jeremy. 

Jeremy, 32, and Brooke began dating in May of 2015, six months after he filed for divorce from Leah, who he shares daughter Adalynn, 8, with.

Two years later, they broke up for the first time, starting an on-and-off relationship.

They would reunite shortly after, but parted ways just one month later when Brooke accused Jeremy of cheating on her with multiple women, including her best friend.

The father of one eventually admitted that he did sleep with Brooke's friend, but claimed he only did so after she "slept with some other guy first.”

LEAH'S NEW ROMANCE

Earlier this year, Leah, 29, made sure to let fans know she is not interested in getting back together with Jeremy, though the two have hooked up after their divorce. 

She said on Instagram: "This will NEVER happen! Jeremy is Adalynn's dad, just as Corey is the twins' dad.

"We all get along very well and put our daughter's best interest first. I prefer to keep it that way.”

Leah added: "I will always wish them the best in life.”

The mother of three is now in a relationship with boyfriend Jaylan Mobley.
