According to new reports, Kailyn Lowry has filed a defamation lawsuit against her Teen Mom co-star, Briana DeJesus. Furthermore, her rep shared a statement about it via E! News, claiming that she was ‘disheartened by the recent untrue statements’ made by the other reality TV star.
The two celebs have been feuding for a long time and it sounds like, instead of making peace, their bad blood is just getting worse!
Court documents obtained by E! News state that Kailyn is suing Briana over her claims ‘that Lowry beat Christopher Lopez, the father of 2 of her sons, and broke and entered into the home of Mr. Lopez’s mother.’
Of course, this means that Kailyn’s legal team argues that Briana’s accusations were not true and that they were also just made ‘for the purpose of causing Lowry harm,’ adding that the ‘Defendant used Lowry just to gain some additional media attention.’
As mentioned before, a rep for Lowry shared a statement via E! News, telling the news outlet that ‘Kail is disheartened by the untrue statements made by her castmate, Briana Dejesus, concerning her absence from a recent episode [of Teen Mom] and involvement in crimes she never committed. Kail takes these statements really seriously. After some necessary self-reflection, Kail’s decided to handle this situation with Ms. Dejesus by exercising her legal rights to protect herself and her brand in Court.’
The statement obviously made reference to Kailyn’s absence from the June 8 episode of Teen Mom.
With that being said, Briana decided to share her opinion as to why her co-star might have skipped the day of filming while chatting with Celebuzz at the time.
That is when she claimed that Lowry was once arrested after getting into a physical altercation with Chris for cutting their son Lux’s hair without her knowing of permission.
As far as Briana was concerned, Kailyn could have talked about that on the show instead of about her ‘wallpaper color choices.’
Among other things, she also argued that trying to hide the incident made her look ‘inauthentic’ and was an ‘insult’ to the other Teen Mom stars.
