Update: I apologize for the coding issue when we published this post previously; when it was pasted into the draft box, the code didn't take and re-worked itself. Thanks for your patience.
Well, we already have one response to the “bombshell” text messages from Trista to Justin, but I had to also share my perception since as we know, perception is different for every person. Now, this doesn’t mean that I am not in complete agreement with J4A; I am, but my response (aka, this post) will include my commentary and perception on what Trista was sending (at least, the only pieces we have of what she was sending…altered, unaltered—we don’t even know!), and why.
Again, as has previously been posted here by the Contributors: These are my thoughts and my own personal opinions; take them as you wish.
Please note: I have copied and pasted the text messages directly from our buddy, JSTL’s blog post…since you know, that’s the only place where this information has been divulged to the public. My commentary is in colored font below.
U know just as well as i do if i was clean and not using I wouldn’t have had to go to rehab and ask u to take ayla.
Seemingly on the defense; responding to fingers being pointed and blame being shoved in her face for trusting the father of her daughter to care for her. *sigh*
You being w courtney and having ayla being the family that i want us to give ayla weather it ment us just getting together to take ayla out or really being a family. Its all ive wanted since i was 15 to have children and start a family. Why do u think i rushed into w ray i thought ayla and I were missing [out]
Again, on the defensive. What was Justin attacking her for in so many text messages, just weeks after Ayla’s reported disappearance? It has to make ANYONE wonder.
Are you going to the vigil. I want to go but I don’t got a ride. I’m so mad I want to be there for our daughter.
Nothing wrong with this; simple question…at this point, it appears she is trying to come together for their daughter.
Seeing u cry just broke my heart. I know you love ayla and I can’t wait for her to be returned to us.
No explanation needed, in my opinion. At this point in time, I can’t imagine what she was going through. What other position could Trista be in at this point in time? Common sense and logic would bring me to feeling the same way she was, so early on in this “case”. (Again, we don’t have all of the text messages…from before her alleged “abduction” up until now.)
Someday when I see u face to face ill tell u but texting half a book about my life to explain would take hours. U may not believe but i am sorry for putt[ing] hatred toward u
Time stamp shows she is not sleeping, and neither is he (after midnight). This text message also obviously shows they are both regularly communicating with each other; what this also tells ME, personally, is that Justin is questioning her “attacks” on him…whatever those “attacks” may be. My memory tells me that as time continued on, Trista was receiving information from LE and responding to them as any mother would…confused, betrayed, lost, angered, etc.
We both are dealing with this and sometimes I wish we could just cry together. No one understands how we are feeling or what we are dealing
This is directly related to the commentary she gave in a prior interview, wherein she detailed that “no one knows what we are feeling” etc.; just paraphrasing there, but for those that have followed this extensively, you know which interview I’m referring to. Again, NO big deal going on here.
And justin when i say we i mean ayla u and me
Ah, yes: clarification for Justin; to me, it seems she is doing her very best to comfort the father of her daughter…someone wants some responses here, but at the same time, still maintaining HOPE in the matter. After all, this man IS the one that blessed her with her Angel, right?
Im ready to go on a murdering spree
Time stamp; 42-minutes later: what else could she be doing, but going over every, single detail and messaging the one person who is involved, and assumingly responsible? Remember, this is just weeks after the incident was reported.
I dont know I just told my step dad ayla was the only one in the room so i dont know. Justin i cant control what ppl write and he controls thd site im talking to him
Again, responding to Justin’s message to her. Justin must really be angry in his messages to her if she is going on the defense, but still trying to sooth him. They really were having a text war, too! Timestamp: Almost two hours later and they’re still at it.
My step dad has a timeline of ayla he wants you to see and have a copy of it.
Maternal side involving Justin and his posse, respectfully. Also, what this shows me is that Trista and her family are continuously working on finding answers for Ayla, hence their newest website launch (www.answersforayla.com).
He would love to. U got an email? If not he said he would make you one and put it on ay’s page.
[Justin did not accept this olive branch because he believed that they had Ayla in the first place] <-- Really? Then why was there a response just minutes after Trista’s text message to him regarding the timeline. Note Trista’s response to JUSTIN’s response: “He would love to.” This shows me that Justin was seemingly in agreement with this idea of the timeline and sending him a copy; what this also shows me is that Justin may have had his own commentary and events to include in said timeline…right?
Jeff is nothing like my family hes a smart intellegent man
Shift in tone here; it appears that Justin may have changed his stance and/or opinions, and started to attack Trista’s side of things. I saw that Jeff commented on a prior post on this blog wherein it was obvious that Trista would say anything at that point to get her daughter back (e.g., this comment in this text message). What does this tell someone with a logical take on this situation? What this tells ME, is that Justin may have backed down from cooperating, even if only momentarily.
Where u trying to make courtney ays mom? From what ive read she spent every weekend w u and ayla. Justin that girl saw ayla more then me and im her mother that hurts
Poor girl is in AGONY over there. This text message screams just that; not to knock on Trista, but this text message to Justin is pitiful and desperate…but, what would one expect?! All she has during this difficult time is to more than likely re-read everything being thrown out there: All of the lies, the spin, the pro-Trista commentary, the pro-Justin commentary; the comments on TTLOM, the wallposts from Courtney preaching how she considered Ayla her own, etc. I repeat: WHAT WOULD ONE EXPECT?! Ayla is HER daughter, and she is also Justin’s daughter by DNA. This shows me that Trista is not only beating herself up over all of this, but this also shows that her depression is fully present…and we all know how depression works. At this point she is feeling jealousy over Courtney for being with her baby girl in her last known days “alive”. Absolutely horrifying.
Im not mad just really hurt. But i guess i know what it must felt like for you when ray was always w her and not u. Im sorry u didnt get to meet her when she first came into the word im truly sorry justin
Timestamp: Seven minutes later, and this message is a direct response to Justin’s response to Trista. Duh. Now, seeing how we’re aware of their timeline in how long Justin cared for Ayla, we know that Trista obviously “saw” Ayla much, much more than any of the DiPietro’s (CR included)…this is obvious. But here, the latter of the message is Trista caving, and minimizing her hurt to comfort Justin. What her messages show me is that Justin is what she said he is: A Manipulator. This man truly did have a stronghold on her; maturity, age, etc. all play a part here. (I mean NO offense in this, either. Just my opinions.)
Like no one can replace u. I do feel like I owe courtney a thank u for being there for our daughter. U tell me theres no reason to be jealous and there is alot to be jealous about.
Timestamp: Over 20-minutes later, so this tells us they’re still communicating, or, she is continuing on from her final word in her text message beforehand (stating that she is truly sorry), because he may have not responded at all yet, just leaving her hanging and left to think up the worst and/or the best towards him. Also, he apparently told her at some point that there’s no reason to be jealous—I actually tip my hat to him with whatever wording he used to say that to her; at least that shows A LITTLE BIT from Justin that comforts Trista. The tone here also continues to show Trista caving, but again…what would one expect?
Im having a serious break down and u know whats funny my family tell me it not there problem. Nice huh? U r lucky to have a family that is there for u and supports u
This makes me feel so incredibly sad for Trista. I don’t know what her family dynamic is like, other than what I read online, so I don’t have any commentary for this…just that I wish I could give her a big bear hug. During this excruciating time, her family might be brushing this off and pushing her away; or, this could also just be Trista saying what she needs to say to get Justin to open a door for her…for answers. She is either very smart or very naïve. Also, timestamp here is of importance to note: There is nothing more important than this situation in her life; granted, I don’t mean to include her son—he is of course a priority, but you know what I mean by that.
I don’t have a doctor so some therapist want u to be hospitalized befor they will treat and i dont want to go into a mental hospital the media would eat that shit up and i cant leave ray my lil man needs me. Its ok. I know I need to get bk on my meds but I don’t want to go inpatient I cant leave lilman I haven’t had any of them since October. Im hoping community counseling has openings they r a walk in clinic
It appears they are having an active conversation here, seemingly a casual one, at that. This also tells us that she presumably DOES have a mental illness, which oftentimes plays a part in substance abuse for so many people in this Universe; some people at times don’t fully understand their diseases, and choose their own ways to “self medicate” instead of properly medicate, under the supervision of professionals…but, this is just side commentary by me; I don’t know Trista, or her personal battles she suffers. I also will not even try to pretend as if I do, *cough cough*.
I love how pple have nothing better to do w themselfs that they have to talk shit. Justin u believe me right?
Timestamp again; still communicating.
Justin I didn’t right it I don’t want to fight I asked for some things to be changed why do I get the blame for my family and their actions
HA, on the defense. He’s pointing fingers again, placing blame…blah, blah, blah. From what we “know” (i.e., read online) of Justin, this is seemingly typical behavior.
I didn’t take ayla justin and I don’t know who did I can’t believe you think I would do that to our daughter. I left her with u because you could provide for her give her a stable living environment i told you all this i wanted her with you.
Still communicating; this, I suppose, is where Justin was pointing his fingers at Trista, and accusing her of taking Ayla (wherein previously, it was stated that while Ayla was still with him, pre-“abduction”, he was text messaging HER stating he feels someone would take her). And yes, DiPietro lovers: Trista has confirmed that she made the choice to leave Ayla in Justin’s care; big deal. Wasn’t this stated publicly already? Continuing on…
U take them as lies and I have told the media Justin and im not agaisnt u or ur family I will not speak for my family but ive neuer been agaisnt u guys.
Timestamp: They’re still communicating eight minutes later. Clearly, they’re bickering with each other, and it appears that Justin is on the defense this time. Dude’s getting angry, I’d say.
11:46 (not sure am/pm)
[Re: trista’s Brian bangor daily news interview…] I wanted to talk to u about my interview. I told bryan I painted the negative pic of you in the beginning . that u are a wonderful person a wonderful dad and I take full blame for you not knowing about ayla.
Ugh. Making Justin happy, it seems. Further affirming the stronghold he has over her. It makes me wonder how the dynamic is between Justin and Courtney…but that’s just my curiosity speaking. The other side is again, she could be doing this all for “show” to get more out of him; so hard to tell with just ONE-SIDED messages.
U r on nancy grace.
Notifying him of media coverage. No big deal here.
They r talking about our polygraphs
Im ready to kill
Gosh, I wonder why?
Justin stop getting mad, I didn’t hear just from nancy grace. Msp has told me that themselfs what would u do if this was the other way around and you were on the outside like me I believe you justin I know you wouldn’t hurt ayla
Please note that the text messages, general and overall tone coming from Trista has shifted, completely. We all know why.
6:08 pm [from Trista’s brother's phone]
Hey hunnie. I didn’t hang up on you. Ronnies phone ran out of talking minutes. Don’t know whats left for texting ill stay in contact as much as I can.
Hunnie; asserting a comfort zone, in my opinion; good tactics there. Whatever it takes to get some answers.
Yeah but why are they saying they know for sure it warmt an abduction and it came from inside your house? I’ll defend you all the way and I’ll keep doing. You are A good dad justin and I know you loved Ayla.
Three days have passed, and the first message clearly came from Justin. Note the first response from Trista; she is questioning the logic/common sense of the matter at this point in events. The latter portion of the text messages is continuing in the “comfort zone”, in my opinion…again, whatever it takes.
Oh and have you heard anymore from bob
She has a right to ask him anything she wants to; she IS the mother, after all.
I didnt think you did or would Justin and im sorry for asking dont even know why i did. And i truly dont believe you would ever do something to our daughter.
Defending herself after Justin’s response. She knows why she asked him. Continuing in the comfort zone…
Justin I hear you hunnie. And you know when i noticed something i came to you but i dont want to think they would do something but maybe they would for us Because thats my family and they thought by telling you that you would stay away but you didnt
Comfort zone, comfort zone, comfort zone. Whatever it takes!
To fight beautse [because] you know my family has always hated seeing us get along and being parent to Ayla together
Aylas bday is in 2 months and I dont want us missing that especially since u didnt get to be with us last year. So I give u permission to put up on aylas website that you or I do not agree with any events by bob for ayla. You know i wish i could turn to your family for support but i bet i wouldnt get it
Why do you think i said i know they wouldnt. Justim i never ment for your family to hate me or not like me thats the last thing i wanted. As long as i know I got you i con turn to thats all that matters you got to admitt we have come along way with one another
Obvious: They’ve been messaging each other all day.
Justin its crazy shit thats all. Lance alright? And weather you saw it or not i know lance wouldnt just fucking hit someone so he prob had a good reason
Comfort zones. It’s all about comfort zones.
I JUST AN EMAIL FROM A FRIEND OF YOURS THAT STATES HE SAW YOU THROWING AYLA THAT THEY WHERE IN THE HOUSE. YOU KNOW WHAT JUSTIN IF I FIND OUT YOU OR THAT NIGGER GF OF YOURS HURT MY DAUGHTER I WILL BE YOUR WORST FUCKING NIGHTMARE. YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPEND TO HER I AM NOT FUCKING STUPID PLEASE JUST TELL ME WHAT HAPPEND OR WHERE SHE IS. I SWEAR TO FUCKING GOD SOMEONE WILL PAY
There is absolutely NO turning back now. Although I literally cannot stand the fact (nor do I agree with, or condone the language used) that her anger brought her to drop the n-word, I feel in my heart that this is all that was: ANGER. She just received an email alleging that Justin was abusing her daughter, which obviously cements her feelings following the broken arm, the bruises, her leg incident, ETC.…the list goes on at this point, right? What would one expect? For her to continue in her comfort zone, soothing Justin and trying to coax him into helping her find her little girl?! No! She is going to dig deep down, into the depths of her soul, using any choice of fighting words to throw at this man in order to get him to freaking TALK TO HER! Please note that in prior text messages, she even stated that she should thank this woman for the “help” and care she provided while Ayla was with them; so this truly shows me that she is really reaching here to throw out the insults. The general tone of this message is this, and this alone: WHERE IS MY DAUGHTER!!!!
Justin the life insurance was not explained very well and you did say you were looking into terminating cs. Look heres the truth my family is saying we are releasing this weather i want it to be or not justin they put in my head you did this and hunnie you dont help with making yourself look like a monster when u aren’t out there begging and pleading and msp have a lot to do with it and i have told everyone u are not a monster
DATE stamp; it had been 10-days, which makes it obvious how the dynamic has shifted. Also, the comfort zone continues—she has her mind set on one thing and only one thing: Bring Ayla Home.
Can I have back all of aylas things that you may have especially her new clothes I had just bought for her I know msp took a lot for evident. do you think you could do that? I had a dream she came home and it seemed so real.
I saw commentators post their thoughts on how she did this because she needed to clothe her daughter, now that Ayla’s apparently with her…since you know, she took Ayla that night from their home and all. Seeing as how it was three days since their last back & forth (at least it appears that way; Justin’s text messages have not been publicized, of course), at this point I’m sure Trista literally wants to cut all the ties imaginable with Justin…clothing, toys, you-name-it are all inclusive. I ask again: What would one expect?
Now, as we know:
1) This release of details is only one-sided, and what we know also is that there is no confirmation that these are ALL OF TRISTA’s MESSAGES. This was not an image scan, directly from the cell phone provider’s corporate offices, or directly from LE who more than likely has all of this documentation in their files…so the fact that anyone can sit there and eat up everything JSTL is posting is simply laughable; and
2) We don’t have Trista’s copies of ALL of the text messages (hers and Justin’s), and more than likely will not see said messages before, during, and after this text thread. Why, you ask? Well, if there is one thing that Trista’s side has truly shown me and have proved to me BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT, it is that the Reynolds (and Hanson) camp are working with LE and some type of legal representation, who advises them otherwise.
Point in fact, here is a screenshot that JSTL posted on their site in an effort to show something negative about Team Trista:
Is this all you have to follow-up on your text message expose? What this shows me, is that you’re troupe is literally reaching for straws here. I commend Jeff Hanson for handling his responses in a mature and respectful manner. I applaud anyone that responds to such hateful commentary (and all commentary, in general) with the same tone and respect for anyone that posts on their site(s). In my eyes, that shows that they continue to stay on track, interact with the public as best they can, and are focusing on their mission…which is, to Bring. Ayla. HOME.
Again, these are just my thoughts and my opinions here. This is also my first official “post” on this blogsite—I’ve only been helping with re-working the layout and such up until now.
Bring on the commentary.
