Kiaya Elliott’s baby daddy was arrested after she learned she’s expecting their child. Although it was revealed on Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant that X’Zayveon Gambrell will only spend one year behind bars, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal he won’t be released until 2023.
According to Chesapeake Circuit Court, Gambrell, 17, was arrested on August 18, 2018.
The first charge is possession of a firearm. The disposition is nolle prosequi, which means not prosecuted.
For the second count, third and forth counts, he was charged with aid in/receive a stolen firearm, felony possession of weapon/ammo (not a gun) and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
He pled guilty and was sentenced to five years in penitentiary with five years suspended. For his probation, he is on indefinite supervision and must complete youthful offenders program.
For the fifth count of elude/disregard police and sixth count of concealed weapon: carry, he was not prosecuted.
Although the prison sentence is suspended, it appears he may have violated his probation. Radar can exclusively reveal he is currently serving time in Sussex II State Prison in Virginia.
He was denied parole on July 24, 2019. The reasons given are because of his “extensive criminal record, and serious nature and circumstances of offenses."
The reason given continues, “The board concludes you should serve more of your sentence prior to release on parole” and “the board concludes you to be a risk to the community.”
A spokesperson for the facility told Radar he has a release date set for January 9, 2023.
Starcasm was the first to report on the arrests.
Kiaya was added to Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant along with co-star Rachel Beaver.
The two new stars join original girls Ashley Jones, Brianna Jaramillo and Kayla Sessler.

In a video introducing Kiaya, she explained her situation with her baby daddy.
“Me and my son’s father met through a mutual friend,” she explained. “We were never together. But I ended up getting pregnant like a month and a half after I met him.”
She continued, “Shortly after I found out I was pregnant, he was incarcerated and he is currently incarcerated.”
In a video of Zay, he revealed that he wants to be involved in his son’s life. “Just because she broke up with me that don’t mean that I’m not going to take care of my baby,” he said.
With Zay behind bars on the MTV show, Kiaya explained how his mother offered to give her money for an abortion. She also allegedly got physical with her.
Despite the harsh response to the pregnancy, Kiaya met with his mom Carla to smooth things over. But the two, along with Kiaya’s mom Tiffany, got into an altercation.
On The Outs?
“Everything should be cordial now,” Carla said. “There should be no attitude. How are we supposed to move on if we stuck like this?”
Kiaya fired back, “Everything that has happened has happened because of you.” When Carla called her disrespectful, her mom defended her and said she’s upset that she “put her hands” on Kiaya.
Carla yelled, “You called me a b***h! That’s when I snapped on your a**!” Security then got involved as the women tried to fight each other.
Although X’Zayveon is behind bars, Kiaya isn’t alone in raising their son Amour. She is in a relationship with girlfriend Teavha on the show.
Kiaya began dating X’Zayveon because Teavha cheated on her.
Stepping Up With Dad Gone
The two reconciled, and Teavha vowed to help Kiaya raise Amour.
“I was hurt at first of course,” Teavha said of the pregnancy. “But I accept it. I’m on board with everything.”
Kiaya continued, “I don’t want anybody coming in and out of the baby’s life. If you’re going to be here, I want you to be here throughout it all or don’t be here at all.”
