Former ‘Teen Mom 2’ star Kailyn Lowry had to pay Briana DeJesus $100K this week after her defamation lawsuit was dismissed. Kail was ordered to pay Briana’s attorney’s fees, which she did on Wednesday June 1st, 2022.
Kailyn filed her defamation lawsuit against Briana after she spoke publicly and in an interview about Kail’s relationship with her ex-boyfriend Chris Lopez. Briana made comments about an alleged domestic violence incident. Kail ended up losing the suit after spending $200K on her own legal team and court fees. She was then ordered to pay Briana back for her attorney’s fees as well.
After the suit was dismissed by a judge on April 18th, 2022, Briana planned a full blown “lawsuit party” and took to social media to boast about her “winning” the case. She also sent Kail a clown costume and wig. Briana also “gifted” Kail with a treadmill during the lawsuit in an obvious attempt to fat-shame. Bri later denied that the exercise equipment had anything to do with Kailyn’s weight.
When the time came for Bri to receive her payment, Kailyn tweeted, “Enjoy today, it’s the highest point you’ll ever get in your life.” Clearly taking a jab at Briana who has been extremely vocal about how happy she is to be getting this money back.
Briana didn’t take long to start bragging on social media and mocking Kailyn in the process. In a now deleted tweet Briana said, “Taking anti-depressents once u realized u can’t always use the court room/color of ur skin to shut people up.” Bri then added, “High light of my life= having a loving family which u don’t have so I’ll always be winning.”
Kailyn recently opened up about her struggle with depression and need for medication on the ‘Teen Mom 2’ reunion special with Dr. Drew. Mental health struggles are not something that anyone should be shamed for, and Briana’s comments were not well received by ‘Teen Mom’ fans. Some even calling for her to be fired from MTV.
Not only was Briana making a low blow at Kail’s depression but also at the sad relationship she has had with her estranged mother Suzi. Over the years we have seen Kailyn struggle with abandonment and the toxic relationship she’s had with her mother.
After getting a huge backlash on Twitter Briana tried to save face with the following statement, “I never said taking antidepressants was a bad thing. Shit, I have some prescribed to me as well and need them from time to time. I just don’t appreciate ppl playing the victim instead of doing inner healing work.”
