And this is what happens when reality TV stars take things too far. “Teen Mom 2” star Kailyn Lowry has officially filed a lawsuit against her co-star Briana DeJesus citing defamation. DeJesus recently commented on Lowry’s absence from an episode of the show this season which sparked the lawsuit. The 27-year-old asserted that the mom of four was absent from the episode because she had physically attacked the father of two of her children Chris Lopez. She also insinuated that Lowry broke into Lopez’s mother’s home. The Pot Head Hair Care founder immediately called the accusations false and said nothing else about it. However, that could have been because she was plotting her revenge.
Battle Of The Teen Moms
The lawsuit was filed this week and the documents were obtained by E! News which stated that DeJesus was only trying to “gain additional media attention for herself.” The document also accused the Florida-native of trying to cause “harm” to Lowry’s reputation. A rep for Lowry issued a statement that read, “Kail is disheartened by the recent untrue statements made by her fellow castmate, Briana DeJesus, concerning Kail’s absence from a recent episode and involvement in crimes that she never committed.” The letter also alleged that before taking the big step in filing a lawsuit, she made sure to reflect on her decision. She ultimately decided to “protect herself and her brand in Court.”
Kail Was Oddly Absent
The episode in question aired on June 8 and focused mainly on DeJesus and her sister Brittney DeJesus’s recovery from multiple cosmetic surgeries. Jade Klein struggling to discipline her daughter Kloie, and Ashley Jones, and boyfriend Bar dealing with the racism that comes along with being the “only black teen mom on a predominantly white show”. DeJesus addressed the absence soon after with Celebuzz where she talked about the 29-year-old’s October 2020 arrest that flew under the radar. The altercation was allegedly about Lopez cutting son Lux’s hair without her permission.
Way Back In October 2020…
Fans may recall that a while back Lowry posted a cryptic message about Lopez being spiteful and sharing a photo with fans of her son’s hair being significantly shorter than when she dropped him off at the top of the weekend. Clearly, the drama is none of DeJesus’s business but the mom of two has had an ongoing feud with her co-star. This is just the latest back and forth for these two. Some past problems include DeJesus dating one of Lowry’s exes and the father of her son Lincoln, Javi Marroquin. The two publicly flaunted their relationship and Lowry did not hide her feelings about it.
Briana Is Screwed Now
The two women have also fought over plenty of other petty situations and regularly take it to social media for their fans to decide. After the interview, DeJesus did just that to further claim that not only did her co-star attack her ex-boyfriend she was also cut from the episode because of the violent act. “It’s not my fault that she got cut from the episode, I was just stating facts,” she wrote. She also shared that Lowry had the opportunity to address some real issues, but she instead wanted to act like they don’t exist. “Kail is sitting on the show legitimately filming about a wallpaper color choice when she could be filming about a domestic abuse situation with Chris that I was told she was trying to hide.” Yikes, those are fighting words.
