Earlier today, we reported on the news that a maternity photo of Kailyn Lowry was posted online, allegedly without her permission.
This probably wouldn’t be news except … okay, maybe it would be. But what we mean to say is that she’s buck ass naked in it.
The image in question is a relatively tame and tasteful one, but she is nude in it, for whatever reason, Kail’s not happy right now.
She says she didn’t want it released to the public, and whether you agree with her or not, that should have been her right.
Lowry is currently pregnant with her fourth child, and the photo is part of a maternity set from which she previously posted pics.
It gets weirder, too: The situation has resulted in yet another ugly back-and-forth between Kail and her baby daddy, Chris Lopez.
Lopez, who put the baby inside her, says he does not believe that the image was actually leaked / posted without her permission.
Kail’s response to that was about what you’d expect. This is some weird stuff. Here’s what we know about the situation thus far:
1. Steamed Kail
2. Naked and Betrayed
3. Making a Statement
4. Personal Pic
5. A Familiar Road
6. An Unpleasant Surprise
Kailyn Lowry has issued a blistering statement in the midst of a new and unfortunate scandal.
This time, however, the Teen Mom 2 star isn’t to blame.
On Thursday, someone seemingly hacked into Lowry’s social media account and/or cell phone and leaked a naked maternity snapshot of the MTV personality online.
No, we’re not about to share it here.
But we are gonna share Kailyn’s response.
Can anyone blame her for being this outraged?
“My team and I have been made aware that a personal photo of me was posted online without my knowledge or permission,” the 28-year old wrote on Instagram last night.
“To say I am deeply saddened and humiliated, especially after the ill-advised posting of my previous maternity photo, is an understatement.
“I had no plans to release this photograph.”
“I ask that any accounts that have reposted it to remove it, and other accounts to refrain from reposting it,” Lowry concluded. “Thank you.”
Kailyn, of course, is pregnant with her fourth child.
It’s her second child with Chris Lopez, someone against whom Kailyn has an order of protection and someone Kailyn herself trashed as a dead father when it came to their first kid together, a son named Lux.
As a result, Lowry has been slammed all over the place by judgmental trolls.
Could one of these haters have done the hack?
Could it have been someone critical of Kailyn’s anti-vaccination stance?
Heck, could it have been Lopez himself? That guy does seem to suck a whole lot.
We simply don’t know — and, to be frank, we’ll likely never know.
Last month, you might recall, the expecting mother of three was criticized after she traveled to Iceland — while the coronavirus pandemic was starting to gain momentum — and then shared her own naked maternity photo online.
While she was standing alongside a horse.
“Trolls don’t even know they’re getting hits of dopamine when they attack other people online,” Lowry clapped back after garnering backlash for the photo below, adding at the time.:
“‘They feel powerful when they make someone else feel pain.”
For the record, meanwhile, stop what you’re thinking right now:
The answer is no.
Kailyn is NOT a hypocrite because she released this X-rated image a few weeks ago and now someone else has released this new picture to the Internet.
It’s a question of choice and an issue over someone invading Lowry’s privacy by exposing her, in unwanted fashion, to the world.
In this case, thankfully, most followers appear to be on Lowry’s side.
“Must be awful to be in the public eye and have personal pictures leaked! And I know before anyone says that she’s on a reality show and that she chose to be in the public eye, but there has to be a line drawn!” one person noted.
“I’ve taken L after L all 2020,” Lowry wrote later in another tweet.
This doesn’t mean she isn’t excited for the new baby, however.
Lowry announced she was having another kid back in February.
“We’re confirming the news, baby No. 4 is coming soon!” the podcast host wrote via Instagram at the time.
“I’m almost 16 weeks pregnant and it’s been a rough few months this time around. I’ve had nausea, morning sickness, and absolutely no energy.”
Then, on February 14, Kailyn elaborated as follows:
“Things have been so different this time around – it’s weird knowing the sex of this baby & trying to solidify a name so he doesn’t go nameless like Lux did + my anxiety is through the roof.
“I’m scared of doing anything wrong.”
For the record, Lowry has also made it clear that Lopez won’t play a role in this child’s life, either.
“I accept my stupidity here,” she told followers a short while ago about getting knocked up again by Lopez.
“But as we all know, someone who doesn’t want to commit doesn’t commit LOL. I had to separate the words with the actions. It took me a while … Can y’all let it go now?”
Sadly, as this incident appears to be prove, it doesn’t seem like some folks can.
Pretty sad, isn’t it?
Kailyn Lowry has been asking fans to “let it go” when it comes to her latest terrible baby daddy.
Now, Chris Lopez is promising fans that he’s trying to change.
On Sunday, April 4, Chris Lopez took to Instagram to address that he is undergoing some much-needec changes.
“I’m in an uncomfortable stage of my life,” he confessed.
Chris shared that he feels that he is in a place “where my old self is gone.”
Considering what we’ve all seen of his “old self,” that is some very good news already!
(In case you need a reminder, here is a photo of him gleefully burning Kailyn’s book just a couple of years ago. A real class act)
“But,” Chris continued, “my new self isn’t fully born yet.”
He added: “I’m in the midst of [a] transformation.”
That brief statement showed more growth and maturity than we’ve seen from him in the past.
Back in October, Chris dropped some hints that he knew that he had been in the wrong.
“Do you regret not being more involved with Lux in the beginning?” asked a fan during an Instagram Q&A.
“In a way, yes,” Chris confessed at the time.
“Here’s an honest moment for y’all,” he promised.
“I wouldn’t say regret,” Chris then clarified.
“But,” he admitted, “I wish I was there more for his mother while she was pregnant with him.”
“That’s definitely some #realtalk right there,” Chris stated.
“She really carried my son for nine months,” he acknowledged, “and I was f–kin’ up.”
That was not his only or last f–k up when it came to Kailyn.
Reports have said that Chris behaved in a physically abusive manner towards Kailyn, even after Lux was born.
Additionally, around the time that Baby #2 was conceived, Chris had some sort of altercation that required the police to be contacted.
He may be exhibiting growth, but it’s unclear that having a larger role in the lives of his children will do any good for anyone.
Chris has teased that he will address any and all rumors about himself in an upcoming documentary.
“Man, y’all getting the other side, y’all getting the part that y’all want,” Chris boasted.
He was speaking to fans through an Instagram clip, one that he has since deleted.
“I got tired of hearing about me not being on TV,” he explained.
Chris continued: “I got tired about being on social media and all this other stuff.”
“So now I’m letting y’all in on my world a little bit,” he explained.
“I’ll speak on, you know, my failures, you know, my disappointments, trials, tribulations,” Chris listed.
He summarized by saying that he will discuss “things that’s been said about me.”
Perhaps Chris has truly turned things around — or, at least, will turn things around — and become a better human being.
That would be great, if still fall short of undoing all that he has said and done over the years.
We will have to wait and see how Chris demonstrates these alleged changes.
After all, actions speak louder than words.
One of the cool things about being on Teen Mom is that you make a lot of money.
Like, a lot.
The moms and the original dads make hundreds of thousands of dollars per season, if you can even believe it, and they also get to travel for free if MTV is filming, which is pretty neat since we’ve been seeing a lot more vacations on the show recently.
But besides the show itself, cast members are pulling in crazy amounts of cash from all kinds of wild and crazy places.
“Like where?” you may be wondering.
Well, wonder no further …
