As far as Teen Mom feuds go, nothing will top the one between Kailyn Lowry and Briana DeJesus. Ever since Briana joined the cast of Teen Mom 2, she seemed to butt heads with the rest of her co-stars. But things took an especially nasty turn when Bri started dating Kail’s ex-husband Javi Marroquin.
During a recent Teen Mom 2 After the Show special, Kail explained the real reason why she was so upset with Bri and Javi. “I’m not upset that they were gonna hang out or they wanted to date or whatever, it’s how they went about it,” Kail said. “So if you’re lying consistently about if y’all are gonna be together, just be together but then tell me that so I’m not confused.”
In a matter of months, the reality stars’ feud had gone from subtweeting to full-on social media and press war. From releasing private text messages to bringing up other exes, the women went in on one another for all to watch. Keep scrolling below for a timeline of Kailyn and Briana’s feud so far.
Javi hinted at long-distance relationship with Briana
After weeks of social media flirting between Javi and Briana, the former alluded to a being in a long-distance relationship on Twitter. “I’m telling you bruh. Long distance is nice [if] you find the right one,” he wrote. This spurred many fans to predict that the lucky gal was Briana, who is based in Florida, far from Javi’s Delaware home base.
Kailyn played it cool about her ex’s rumored romance
A couple of weeks later, Javi and Bri were spotted out in NYC having dinner with her family and hitting up a club. In response to the photos of the two together, Kail played it off, telling In Touch, “I don’t really know much about it but I wish them the best. That’s all I’ll say on that!”
Bri and Javi planned a family vacation together
This is what really ignited the feud between Bri and Kail. Bri and Javi planned on taking their children — Bri has two daughters named Nova and Stella from previous relationships, and Javi shares son Lincolon with Kail and is a stepfather to her oldest son Isaac — on a trip together to Universal’s Volcano Bay. Bri told their mutual co-star Leah Messer that she would be staying at the same hotel with her family as Javi and the boys. Leah immediately told Kail, and Kail interpreted it as Javi and Briana would be in the same hotel room with each other and their kids when they were sharing a three-bedroom villa and would have their own separate rooms. Kail was also upset because Bri told her that she and Javi were just friends, meanwhile Javi told Kail that he wanted to be with Briana.
Javi confirmed the relationship
Even though Bri said they were just friends, things quickly got serious between them. It was Javi who finally made things official with Briana in the press, revealing to People that they were an item. “We are dating,” he said at the time. “We’ve been friends for a while and we weren’t in a rush.”
Kailyn lashed out on Twitter
Unlike her initial low-key response, Kailyn’s reaction to Javi confirming his relationship with Briana was much more hostile. She first subtweeted her co-star, writing “don’t s–t where you eat.” She then claimed ratings on TM2 have declined since Briana joined.
Briana denied dating Javi after backlash
In a confusing move, Briana denied she was dating Javi, likely due to the criticism she received from viewers and her castmates alike. When a fan told Bri that her relationship with Javi wouldn’t last, she responded in a now-deleted tweet, “We are friends.”
Briana hinted that she “might” move to Delaware to be with Javi
That denial didn’t last long, as soon enough, Briana was hinting at a move to be closer to her new beau. When Teen Mom star Tyler Baltierra questioned the romance, writing, “Yeah right, you live in Florida,” she replied, “I might end up somewhere in Delaware sooooo.”
Briana revealed explicit details of her sex life with Javi
Fans wondered if Bri’s Twitter was hacked when she suddenly got all TMI about her personal life with Javi. “U kno he’s the one when he spreads dem cheeks apart and spits inside ur a–hole,” she wrote. That was followed up with, “Let me sign off of this cause I be in my feelings too much lmao.” Soon after both tweets were deleted, but something told us Kailyn saw them first.
Briana leaked texts between Kailyn and Javi
Things got even more controversial on Twitter a month after, when Briana shared a private text exchange between Kailyn and Javi. In the screenshots, which were later deleted, a salty-sounding Kail noted that Javi was taking Bri on the same dates they’d gone on — specifically to basketball games. She texted sarcastically, “I remember that trip I sent you on I’m glad you get to go again with Briana… I hope she loves doing all the stuff me and you used to do. Take her to the shark tank at the Adventure Aquarium next.”
Kailyn’s team said no one likes Briana
After the text leak, sources close to Kail told the press that she “feels bad” for “ignorant” Briana. The insider also claimed that, “Nobody on the show really likes her.”
Briana taunts Kail, says she’d “f–k” another one of Kailyn’s exes
After that, it was Bri’s turn to throw down, joking that she hooked up with another one of Kailyn’s baby daddies, Jo Rivera. Whether that’s true or not, it sparked some drama — just not with Kailyn. Instead, Jo’s current girlfriend Vee Torres laid into Bri.
Bri deleted her Twitter
Kail’s friend, Love & Hip Hop star Moniece Slaughter, decided to jump into the mix and she dragged Briana in a series of tweets. After their brief exchange with each other, Bri seemed to be over the drama and she deleted her Twitter.
Bri says she “won” the feud
Bri took to Instagram on Friday, Dec. 2 to share a now-deleted series of photos using the carousel feature of her and Javi together wearing matching outfits. Bri originally wrote “#iwon” in the caption, which definitely had Kail feeling some type of way — so she took to Twitter to respond.
“#iwon more time with my son,” she wrote, adding a heart emoji — and even hinting that Javi left their son Lincoln with Kail while he spends time with Bri on the weekends. It seems like Bri didn’t think Kail would react or she couldn’t handle the drama so she deleted her caption and replaced it with just a heart emoji.
#iwon more time with my son 💕

Javi and Bri split
The couple called it quits after almost two months of dating, and Bri said there were multiple reasons for their breakup. Not only was their entire relationship surrounded by drama, but Bri hinted during an interview on the Spilling the Teen Mom Tea podcast that Javi didn’t want Bri to go through with her post-baby plastic surgery procedure. She also said Javi wanted a more serious relationship and he wanted to get engaged so that she could move to Delaware to live with him but she wasn’t ready to make that commitment at the time.
One month after Bri and Javi split, Kail and Bri still continued their feud on Twitter, coming after each other about what they were saying about each other on various podcasts.
Bri and Kail got into it on Twitter during the season premiere of Teen Mom 2, and Bri defended herself after fans accused her of breaking girl code and going after Javi. After a brief exchange, Bri blocked Kail on Twitter. Even though things seem quiet on either side, it seems like this feud is definitely not over.
