Kailyn Lowry, who sued Teen Mom 2 actress Briana DeJesus for defamation earlier this month, has enraged DeJesus’ family. Lowry took aim at DeJesus’ previous comments in a June 9 interview about why Lowry was absent from the Teen Mom 2 episode the night before. Lowry, according to DeJesus’ mother Roxanne DeJesus, was simply seeking for a new tale, while DeJesus’ sister Brittany DeJesus referred to Lowry as a “Karen.”

“Y’all can come after me all you want, but I think Kail Lowry exudes dry p— energy,” Brittany wrote on July 8. “Karen s—, a white woman seeking legal assistance in the case of a person of color. p— energy that isn’t wet.” In a second tweet, Brittany elaborated. She has already removed both tweets, but screenshots have been shared on Instagram by a fan account.

“Looks like someone is looking for a storyline,” Roxanne replied in her own July 8 answer. DeJesus hasn’t specifically addressed the case, but she appears to have alluded to it. On July 9, she changed her profile photo to Viola Davis’ character in the legal drama How To Get Away With Murder. “I am Annalise rn,” she added in another tweet, referring to Davis’ role.

In a June 9 interview with Celebuzz, Lowry accused DeJesus of stating, “Lowry physically attacked Christopher Lopez, the father of two of Lowry’s sons, and broke into and entered the home of Mr. Lopez’s mother.” According to Lowry’s lawyers, DeJesus’ comments were false and only made “to cause Lowry harm… Defendant took advantage of Lowry to obtain more media attention for herself.

Lowry’s spokeswoman informed E! News that Lowry is “disappointed” by DeJesus’ recent “untrue statements.” “These assertions are taken seriously by Kail. Kail has opted to approach the problem with Ms. DeJesus by using her legal right to protect herself and her brand in court after some necessary self-reflection.”

Last month, DeJesus told Celebuzz that she believed Lowry was attempting to hide aspects of her life from the cameras on Teen Mom 2. “Like Kail is recording about a wallpaper color choice when she could be shooting about a domestic abuse problem with Chris that I was told she was trying to hide,” DeJesus state.

Lux’s hair was cropped at the time, and she was detained for reportedly getting into a violent argument with Chris.” In an Instagram Live session, DeJesus also commented on the subject. She implied that Lowry was still upset with DeJesus because he was dating her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin. Lowry, she believes, does not want cameras filming her “real life” or showing her with her sons’ father.

“She’s trying to sweep up the bad girl act and portray herself as this businesswoman, which is great… but when we’re on a television show that documents our day-to-day life, it isn’t fair to the crew or castmates that pour out their whole life,” DeJesus wrote on Instagram. In the lawsuit, Lowry refuted these allegations.
