This custody battle is heating up! Kailyn Lowry's baby daddy Chris Lopez filed for emergency custody of their son, Lux Lowry, 10 months, during the most recent episode of Teen Mom 2, and fans were able to watch the whole thing unfold. Kailyn was understandably upset as she claimed that Chris hadn't even asked her to see Lux.
"I haven't talked to [Chris] in two months and he hasn't asked to see his son," Kailyn explained. But, after filing for custody, Chris' story was a bit different. "Chris said him not having contact with the baby is detrimental to the baby and will cause harm by him not knowing his father," Kail said. "Mind you, he didn't sign the birth certificate, he didn't want me to file for custody or child support, but then he turned around and filed for custody."
And Chris was granted some time with Lux, but unfortunately, it wasn't on the terms Kailyn had hoped for. After going to court, Kailyn said that Chris will get four weeks of supervised visits. But, his aunt will be the supervisor instead of someone uninvolved in the situation. "Why can't the person who supervises the visits be a neutral party?" the mom of three asked.
She added, "I don't trust his family to be there. I got what I wanted for Lux, but I'm upset still. There is no winning. Lux still loses because he won't have both of his parents." And although she was super upset about the outcome, Kail admitted that she would never try and keep Lux from his dad forever.
"Every child needs their father," she said on the show. "I don't have the right to take Chris away from his son. But, at the same time, the baby is four months old. Nobody knows what's best for this baby more than me." Chris has yet to speak out about the arrangement.
This all comes just days after Kailyn called out Chris on Twitter for being a loyal friend to her. "Even through all my bitterness and hurt, no matter what I said, Chris never sold me out," she tweeted. "And I never give him credit. He turned down money [and] interviews every time." The two have clearly been through a rocky relationship with many ups and downs. But, judging by this tweet, they may have patched things up since Chris blindsided Kail with the custody filing.
