‘Love After Lockup’: Fans Are Shocked to See Who Lacey is with Now

Love After Lockup celeb Lacey Whitlow has been juggling men since her first season of the WEtv show with Shane Whitlow and John Slater. Meanwhile, many viewers are shocked to see who she is with now. So what’s the latest?

Love After Lockup Love Triangle

As Love After Lockup watchers know, WEtv milked the love triangle storyline between Lacey, Shane, and John from the very beginning. The first love triangle from this show was between Michael Simmons, Sarah Simmons, and Megan Nash. And it was clear that WEtv wanted to go in a similar direction with this newer trio.

Meanwhile, as Lacey Whitlow juggled Shane Whitlow and John Slater on Love After Lockup, WEtv teased a big showdown between both felon men that never happened. But, even though this storyline has been going on for years, it seems Lacey is still going back and forth between them.

Lacey Whitlow Going Back & Forth

Even though Lacey Whitlow eventually married Shane Whitlow, John Slater was always hanging around. And it seems like whenever Lacey and Shane have problems, John is right there to swoop in – even though Lacey called the cops on John and got him thrown back in the clink. Moreover, he can’t seem to stay away from her, either.

From the looks of it, Lacey and John are back together – for now. The Love After Lockup pair rang in the new year together. And Shane Whitlow’s estranged wife shared pics locking lips with her other inmate bad boy. So at least for now, it looks like “Big Daddy” is back home.

Lacey Whitlow said in her recent Love After Lockup update with John Slater that she is “looking forward” to what the new year brings. And that she is in a “happy place” while choosing to keep her “circle small”. Meanwhile, many viewers are already wondering how long this round will last.

As Love After Lockup watchers keeping up with this situation know, Shane and Lacey have been having problems. And Shane went “missing” recently – only to be found in a “mentally incapacitated” state, according to Lacey. Because of this, many watchers think Lacey ran off with John because Shane has been in a bad way.

Love After Lockup Watchers Weigh-in

With all the back and forth between “Chain” and “Chon” over the years, Love After Lockup fans have a lot to say about Lacey recently ringing in the new year with John – and a lot of them don’t hold back. Many worry that being with “toxic” Lacey will drive John Slater back to drugs if/when things don’t work out this time around.

In addition, others say that John Slater will “never learn” and that he deserves “much better” than her. Meanwhile, Love After Lockup watchers also remind John that Lacey is the one that called the cops on him – and that it’s likely only a matter of time before she runs back to Shane and repeats the process.

For now, it looks like Lacey is with John. But, until proven otherwise, the majority of Love After Lockup watchers take this news with a heaping dose of skepticism. And many are placing bets on how long this latest stint will last until the cycle repeats all over again.
