“Teen Mom” star Kailyn Lowry recently went on an unfollowing spree on Instagram. The mother-of-four unfollowed several accounts, including her co-star Leah Messer.
Kail addressed her choice to cut down her follow count in a March Instagram story. She posted a question from a fan who asked, “why did you unfollow everyone?” She replied to the question, writing, “don’t trust anyone.”
Fans were confused by Kail’s decision to unfollow Leah, and took to Reddit to share their opinion on the Instagram drama.
“D***, she even unfollowed Leah and that girl actually rocks with her. She’s dumb,” one Redditor wrote.
“Wait, I thought her and Leah were best friends. Wtf did I miss?” another fan chimed in.
“D*** imagine if [you’re] actually her friend and she pulls some s*** like that,” another Reddit user wrote. “No wonder why she never keeps any.”
Fans Think Kail Was Fired
Kail’s recent unfollowing spree occurred after rumors she was let go from MTV surfaced.
The speculation began after Kail shared a cryptic post on her March 19 Instagram story. In the clip, Kail rolled her eyes with the text “how I feel about the f**kery I woke up to,” written across the screen.
The clip led fans on Reddit to speculate that Kail may have been fired from “Teen Mom.” A fan started the thread by sharing a screenshot from Kail’s March 19 story with the title, “what’s happening in Kail’s world now.”
“Teen Mom” viewers replied to the original post with their thoughts on the suggestive Instagram clip.
“I’m really starting to think she got fired or sternly warned. 🚒🔥🗣️,” one fan wrote.
“Maybe she got fired and isn’t happy lol!” another Redditor wrote
“Does this mean she got fired?” a third user replied.
“I was wondering if MTV would keep her because of her attitude about not filming,” a fourth user wrote. “She blabs her entire life (her version), and has this attitude that it has to be shown that way or she will sue…So maybe she did get the ax. She has lost touch with reality and the meaning of this show so…”
Kail on Her Relationship With Leah
Kail unfollowing Leah may come as a shock to some fans, but this isn’t the first time the MTV star has voiced her issues with her “Teen Mom” co-star.
In an October 2021 episode of her podcast “Coffee Convos,” Kail revealed she felt left out when she initially joined the “Teen Mom 2” cast because everyone already knew each other. Kail said that she joined the cast later than her co-stars Leah Messer and Chelsea Houska, resulting in an odd friendship dynamic.
“Chelsea and Leah were like besties on the show,” she said. “I felt like I was always the second choice to them. I was always second best. I was always an afterthought.”
Kail went on to say that at the time, she felt like a “B-List friend” among the cast, telling co-host Lindsie Chrisley that she only received invitations if “Chelsea and Leah were busy.”
“Teen Mom 2” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on MTV.
