Teen Mom Catches Heat After Briana DeJesus Tells Kailyn Lowry To Get “Beat Up” By Baby Daddy

By  | 


Teen Mom stars Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus have been feuding since Bri became a late cast addition to Teen Mom 2 and promptly started dating Kail’s ex husband Javi Marroquin. Ultimately, Javi and Briana didn’t work out since she wanted to stay in Florida and he had another girl willing to move to Dover (now-baby mama Lauren Comeau), but Kailyn and Bri’s feud forges on.

The beef between these two reality stars got to new heights this weekend, though, when Kailyn decided to post (and later delete) pregnancy photos that show her baby bump while she is nude next to a horse. Teen Mom fans were understandably confused by the artistic concept, as was Bri, who commented on a screenshot of the photos with laughing emojis.

Kail swiftly responded by bringing up Briana’s revenge porn incident, in which her ex released an intimate video of her. “Posting this photo didn’t go as planned. #yikes [sic] but remember the time shock posted the video y’all having sex?”

Briana, not one to take a jab to the face, responded, “Girl shut the f*ck up! Lol go continue getting beat up by Chris.” In case you missed it: Kailyn currently has an order of protection out against Lux’s dad, Chris, who also happens to be the father of her unborn baby. There have been several rumors that Chris got violent with her around the time she got pregnant with her fourth child, whom we now know to be a son.

Neither of these girls are in the right. Revenge porn is wrong, and not the woman’s fault when it gets leaked. Intimate partner violence is wrong, and not the woman’s fault when it happens. The fact that either of these twentysomething-year-old women would use those examples to “diss” the other is truly beyond. But additionally, it raises concerns about the types of actions that the Teen Mom franchise and MTV condones. After all, they fired Jenelle Eason‘s husband, David, for being a dumpster fire of a man, but Amber Portwood, who pleaded guilty to domestic battery, will be featured in the upcoming season of Teen Mom OG.

Kail’s good friend, Bone, slammed Bri for the tweet, writing that Bri would be getting her “ass beat” at the upcoming reunion. Then, she tagged MTV, writing, “So your cast members are allowed to make light of domestic violence? Guess @mtv supports domestic violence! Let it be known!”
