Kailyn Lowry does not take kindly to death threats. After Jenelle Evans’ mother, Barbara, threatened to end her life, the Teen Mom 2 star announced that she has stopped filming the new season until she knows everything is safe.
The drama ramped up during an Instagram live session, in which Barbara told Jenelle they should “get lit and kill Kail.” A shocked Jenelle immediately told her mom that she cannot say things like that on social media.

Barbara tried to cover her tracks by saying she was only joking about killing Lowry. But Lowry did not think it was a joking matter. Shortly after the live session ended, Lowry revealed that she has stopped filming Teen Mom.
“I’m disgusted it came from her,” Lowry shared. “I want no association with any person or network that works with that family.”
While Lowry delays production, her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, has not stopped filming. Marroquin revealed that he is aware of the situation but plans to move forward with filming as long as MTV is willing to proceed.
It is unclear if Barbara is serious about the death threat, but Lowry has good reason to be afraid. Jenelle’s husband, David Eason, has made headlines for his disturbing behavior over the past few months, and even Marroquin has refused to film any scenes with Jenelle.
As Marroquin explained, Eason always knows where Jenelle is going, which means he knows when and where to find MTV crews. With Eason recently threatening to shoot anyone that comes close to his property, there is no telling what he is capable of doing.

In fact, Eason recently caused a major stir after pulling a gun on an innocent real estate agent named Sandra Britt. The agent says she was looking for a property to sell near his home when he threatened her with the gun. She later filed an official police report in Columbus County.
Kailyn Lowry has not said when she will return to filming the new season of Teen Mom.
