Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry caused a stir this past weekend after she attended her ex Jo Rivera’s wedding. But, it wasn’t just the fact that she showed up to her baby daddy’s nuptials that got people talking, it was who she went with — her BFF Becky Hayter.
Lowry and Hayter — who have had dating rumors swirl in the past —shared pics on social media of the two of them with the newlyweds and Lowry’s oldest son, Isaac. And, the reality star fired back at homophobic fans who gave her a hard time for bringing Hayter as her date, and those who went after her for attending Rivera’s wedding.
“You can call it good co-parenting all you want, but it sends mixed messages to the children,” one fan wrote. But, Lowry clapped right back by responding, “Vee and Jo invited me.”
Rivera married Vee Torres, who is also the mother of Isaac’s half-sister Velisse. While enjoying the celebration, Lowry made sure to clear the air, and wrote in one post with Hayter that they were “Everybody’s fav couple who’s not a couple.” She also added a laughing emoji.
And, she told homophobic fans you should accept people for who they are, and she questioned why anyone would teach their kids any different.
Lowry also thanked Hayter for being her date to the wedding, and for wiping her tears as she bawled.
Last year, Hayter shut down the rumors that she was dating Lowry when she tweeted that people needed “to get more creative” with their direct messages. She added that they should at least send a joke or a meme, and the “are you and Kail dating” questions get old.
Lowry also cleared the air about the rumors that she had hard feelings about Rivera getting married. She said that there is no reason to be bitter about it, and she and Rivera have come a long way since they were 18. She added that she couldn’t ask for a better stepmom for her son, and she cried tears of happiness.
Lowry and Rivera have had a pretty good relationship in recent years, and it is much more chill compared to her relationship with Javi Marroquin, which is always filled with drama.
But everyone appeared to get along well at Rivera’s wedding, and they seem to be a happy, blended family.
Kailyn Lowry returns in new episodes of Teen Mom 2 in 2019 on MTV.
