TEEN Mom Kailyn Lowry tells fans to 'mind their business' before facing Briana DeJesus in court over 'defamation' claims

TEEN Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry advised fans to "mind their business."

The mom-of-four is preparing to face costar Briana DeJesus in court over "defamation" claims.


Kailyn said in an Instagram story video: "I have gone to the gym, and I'm about to run into Dick's Sporting Goods really quickly and then go right to football practice.

"So if you see me out looking like this, won't be a shock, but also mind your business."

On Tuesday Kailyn took to her Instagram Story to share a text post, which began with the question: “Can you multitask?”

The MTV star gave insight into her current mindset, as the prompt ended with the response: “Yes, actually, I am losing my mind and chilling at the same time.”

She shared the post as she prepares to face her Teen Mom 2 co-star Briana, 27, in court.

Kailyn sued Briana for defamation in June after claiming the mother of two “asserted she physically beat Christopher Lopez, the father of two of Lowry's sons, and broke into and entered the home of Mr. Lopez's mother.”

The Sun exclusively revealed recently the stars are expected to face off in court on January 14, according to court papers. 

The hearing is to rule on Briana’s anti-SLAPP motion, which protects a person’s freedom of speech, that was filed in August to have the case dismissed.

In Kailyn's initial complaint against Briana, her legal team claimed her co-star’s comments are false and were made "for the purpose of causing Lowry harm… Defendant used Lowry to gain additional media attention for herself." 

The mother of four explained their long-standing feud in the court papers filed on June 25, which began when Briana joined the cast of Teen Mom 2 in 2017. 

Kailyn claimed Briana "has a history of making false public statements regarding Lowry’s family life,” including when she allegedly responded to a Twitter user “[Lowry] gets beat the f**k up by Chris in front of her kids.”

The longtime Teen Mom 2 star was also mentioned in the lawsuit when she was excluded from the MTV show's June 8, 2021 episode. 

BRIANA'S CLAIMS

However, Briana claimed Kailyn wasn’t included in the episode because she allegedly “committed violent, physical crimes towards Mr. Lopez. Defendant also asserted that Lowry was arrested for breaking and entering into the home of Mr. Lopez’s mother.” 

Briana then stated Kailyn “didn’t want to film” about the alleged incident. 

Kailyn claimed she did not break into Chris’ mother’s home or beat him up. 

She added the statements “threaten” her “ability to earn a living.”

The papers alleged: “An Instagram user tagged several of Lowry’s sponsors and employers in a different post referencing the Defendant’s allegations concerning Lowry.

“The Post interferes with and injures Lowry’s profession, occupation, business and employment.

“Upon information and belief, Lowry’s sponsors, as well as her podcasts’ sponsors, are aware of the allegations made in the post.”

Kailyn went on to claim the post was made with “actual malice” and that Briana “knew the post was false and/or acted with reckless disregard of whether it was false or not.”

The MTV star alleged she suffered “the impairment of her reputation and standing in the community, personal humiliation, and mental anguish.” 

She requested $30,000, reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees, and a jury trial. 

BRIANA RESPONDS

In Briana’s response, her attorney claimed the reality star could not have defamed Kailyn with "false" stories because she was arrested for the alleged assault on her ex. 

The attorney wrote: “She verifiably was arrested for thisand her arrest garnered media attention.” 

Briana's lawyer called Kailyn’s lawsuit "meritless" and demanded she pay his client's legal fees, while he also requested the entire lawsuit be dismissed.

KAILYN HITS BACK

In September, Kailyn filed an opposition to Briana’s request for a summary judgment.

She denied Briana’s claims about “refusing to film” the June episode due to her October 2020 “offensive touching” arrest against Chris.

All of the charges from her fight with Chris have since been dropped.

Instead, she argued she didn’t film the episode because she was “dating someone new.”

CHRIS GETS INVOLVED

The Sun also reported Chris, 27, has been dragged into the court war and has been served a subpoena in his baby mama’s case against Briana. 

According to Delaware courts, Chris has been ordered to appear in court, testify or produce documentation.

Chris shares sons Lux, 4, and Creed, 1, with his ex Kailyn.
