Kailyn Lowry’s dad, Chris Lopez, has been sued in his lawsuit against fellow Teen Mom 2 star Briana DeJesus. As previously reported by Monsters & Critics in July 2021, Kailyn Lowry filed a lawsuit against Briana for defamation of character.
Court documents obtained by E! News revealed that Kail filed her lawsuit claiming that Briana, the defendant, “asserted that Lowry physically beat Christopher Lopez, the father of two of Lowry’s sons, and broke into and entered the home of Mr. Lopez’s mother.”
Kailyn Lowry’s legal team stated that Briana’s comments were false, intended to cause harm to Teen Mom 2 veteran Kailyn, and were made for Briana’s personal gain.
The feud between Kailyn and Briana escalated after Kailyn Lowry’s absence from the June 8 episode of Teen Mom 2. Briana took to social media to explain why Kailyn Lowry was “cut” from the show. Later, it was revealed that Kail chose not to film for that particular episode, which coincided with her arrest for allegedly punching Chris Lopez.
This didn’t sit well with Briana, who felt that the cast of Teen Mom 2 should share all aspects of their lives for the cameras, not pick and choose.

Now, it has been confirmed that Chris Lopez has been dragged into the lawsuit, as reported by The Sun, which confirmed that Chris received a subpoena on September 16, according to Delaware courts. A subpoena is a court order that requires a person to go to court, go to a deposition, or provide documents or evidence that may support a case.
Kailyn and Chris have been on the outs recently, and things escalated when Kailyn Lowry accused Chris of fat-shaming in a text, which he screenshotted and shared on Instagram.
After the fat-shaming allegations, Chris deactivated his Instagram account and has been laying low except for the occasional tweet and continues to co-host his podcast, P.T.S.D. – Pressure Talks with Single Dads. Briana has secured a powerful attorney to represent her in the case, and he has suggested that the lawsuit be dismissed.
