Kail Lowry has filed a lawsuit against co-star Briana DeJesus.
E! News reported that the lawsuit is in regards to defamation after the defendant “asserted that Lowry physically beat Christopher Lopez, the father of two of Lowry’s son’s and broke into and entered the home of Mr. Lopez’s mother”
Kail’s legal team stated that Briana’s comments are untrue and they were made “for the purpose of causing Lowry harm…Defendant used Lowry to gain additional media attention for herself.”
This all stems from Kail’s peculiar absence from the June 8th episode of Teen Mom 2.
The statement said the following:
“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… Kail takes these statements very seriously. After necessary self-reflection, Kail has decided to handle this situation with Ms. Dejesus by exercising her legal right to protect herself and her brand in Court.”
Briana opened up about her thoughts on Kail’s absence from the now-infamous June 8th episode in an interview with Celebuzz. She told the website:
“Like the other women on the show—and Kail herself—I had absolutely no idea that Kail was going to be cut from the show tonight,”
“However, as a cast member who takes pride in being my authentic self and telling my full, true story—the good, the bad, the ugly, and everything in between—I would be remiss to not address the situation.”
It’s widely known that Kail’s outrageous attack against Chris was about a haircut for Lux and Briana chimed in on that as well:
“Like 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,”
“This was back when [her son] Lux’s hair was cut and she was allegedly arrested after allegedly getting into a physical altercation with Chris. While I understand Kail—and all of us—want to be shown overcoming our struggles and that we all take pride in our names (and Kail takes pride in her brand and her podcasts) at the end of the day she shouldn’t try to cover up the real her or things that are going on in her real life. It comes off as exceptionally inauthentic and an insult to her other cast members.”
It’s also believed that Briana still thinks Kail is still upset with her for having a previous fling with ex Javi Marroquin.
(let’s be real this probably has a lot to do with it)
In the documents, Kail and her legal team state “Lowry did not break into and enter the home of Mr. Lopez’s mother. Not did Ms. Lowry beat Mr. Lopez.”
Kail and her legal team are requesting compensation for damages and attorney fees. She also requested a trial by jury. Briana and her camp have yet to comment on the situation.
