Kailyn Lowry on Abusive Relationships
Lowry got vulnerable about her past relationship traumas, telling her “Baby Mamas No Drama” co-host Vee Rivera about a time when an ex-boyfriend told her, “Sometimes I can be so in love with you and then you just open your mouth and immediately I’m in a bad mood.”
Lowry went on to say that the same ex-boyfriend mocked her mental health disorder. She said the unnamed ex was dismissive of her complex post traumatic stress disorder and joked about it on a podcast.
The 29-year-old also recalled another experience when an ex-boyfriend clapped in her face during an argument.
“I had this one guy I was dating clap in my face, like literally this close to my face when we were in an argument,” Lowry told Rivera. She went to say that she called her ex out on his behavior, telling him, “what you did was abuse. That’s still abuse.”
Kailyn Opens Up About Past Emotional Abuse
Lowry further opened up about her experience with emotional abuse on an October 2021 episode of her podcast “Coffee Convos.” The “Teen Mom” star recalled when she lived in funded housing because of her ex’s abusive behavior.
In the October 14 episode titled “Domestic Violence, Effects of Trauma, and Social Media Profiles,” Lowry shared her experience with relationship trauma. She told listeners, “When I stayed at the shelter, it wasn’t because of domestic violence but it still kind of resonates because there was a lot of verbal and emotional abuse and I know that some people don’t remember, but Jo was like that towards me,”
The reality TV star went on to say, “There are several scenes on Teen Mom 2 of abuse like that. So I did resonate with that a little bit cause I stayed at a homeless shelter with Issac,” she told co-host Lindsie Chrisley. “I don’t know if some people don’t know that. I stayed at a homeless shelter in East Pennsylvania with Issac,” she further explained.
The ex Kailyn is referring to is Jo Rivera, with whom she shares her eldest child Issac. Rivera has not responded to the claims.
The confession came as a shock to listeners considering Lowry’s relationship with Jo’s wife, Vee. The two co-host the podcast “Baby Mamas No Drama.”
