Teen Mom 2‘s Kailyn Lowry is setting the record straight after reports surfaced that she and her reality show co-star Briana DeJesus got into a “heated disagreement” on Saturday while taping the MTV show’s season 8 reunion special.
On Saturday, Us Weekly reported there was a physical fight on set. A source told the outlet, “There was a physical altercation between them, but both returned to resume finish filming.”
However, following the headlines, Kailyn took to Twitter to clarify, “I didn’t get beat up. I didn’t get hit. Reeeeeeeelax.”
The fight is believed to be about Lowry’s ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, whom Briana had a short-lived romance with that ended in January 2018.
On Saturday, The Ashley reported that all of the Teen Mom 2 cast were at the reunion, except Jenelle Evans, who boycotted the reunion, and had come out to the stage to talk to Dr. Drew Pinsky—and that’s when things got crazy.
“Briana was the last girl called to the stage, and she came out and went right at Kail,” one source told the site. “Briana’s sister Brittany DeJesus was on set too and she jumped in and got in Kail’s face. They started swinging at each other and Kail was motioning to Bri to ‘Bring it on!”
Another source told the publication, “There had been a lot of back-and-forth instigation on both ends before the girls got on the stage. That’s why Bri came out ready to fight.”
The outlet says no punches were pulled but there was hair pulling.
One fan tweeted at Briana on Sunday asking if she was okay. Brian responded, “Yes baby I am. I fell on stage but that’s ok.”
Us Weekly reports that filming of the reunion was delayed for about 35 minutes but that both women eventually continued the reunion special. “The crew was able to get everyone to calm down, and all of the moms filmed,” a source told the publication.
