Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry reacted to claims she was “secretly engaged” to Tabari Grubbs, an MMA athlete. The rumor swirled after rumors circulated that she was planning to marry William “Busta” Loper, the father of her ex-boyfriend Chris Lopez.
The Teen Mom 2 star shared a screenshot of her “Girl Gang” group chat after she received well-wishes from her friends. “And you’re secretly engaged to a UFC fighter. Congrats,” one person wrote. “Where should I send the gift?”
Lowry said she was “screaming” at the accusation about Grubbs, who she is not “secretly engaged to” and is not in the UFC. According to Tapology.com, Gruubs is an amateur bantamweight fighter who has three wins and one loss.
“LOL I mean… does this mean it’s a double wedding with Chris’s dad,” the friend added. “These people will believe anything.”
The gossip about Lowry being engaged to Grubbs swirled after she posted a shirtless photo of the MMA athlete holding Lux. It turns out that Grubbs, however, is dating Lowrys friend, Sterling Black, according to In Touch Weekly. The publication noted they are the ones who are engaged, with Black having an engagement ring in her Instagram bio and a wedding registry online.
Lowry went to Texas for Thanksgiving, which is where she met up with Grubbs and Black. It was her first time traveling with all four children: 10-year-old Isaac, 7-year-old Lincoln, 3-year-old Lux and 4-month-old Romello Creed.
Lopez Responded To The Engagement Rumors
Fans aren’t the only ones talking about Lowry potentially being engaged. The gossip even made its way to Lopez, who was confused about the speculation. He responded to the scuttlebutt when asked by his followers on social media.
“I [have] seen this question asked like five times and had no clue what y’all were talking about,” he previously wrote. “I just found out from y’all asking me about it.”
