Briana DeJesus, Alexandria Sekella, Mackenzie McKee and Katie Yeager’s reality TV careers began when their birth stories aired during the fourth season of 16 and Pregnant. The young moms’ lives played out in front of the cameras as they navigated the difficult terrain of teenage motherhood when the franchise’s third installment premiered in November 2013. Though the series was canceled after just one season, some of the girls found their way back in front of the cameras.
In March 2017, MTV announced that Briana would be joining the cast of Teen Mom 2.
“I’ve met Kail [Lowry] and Javi [Marroquin], we’re pretty close. I spoke with a few more over the phone. They sound excited to have me so that’s good news,” she told E! News at the time. “I think we’re all mature here as it should be. But I am the newbie so I understand if some people are having mixed emotions. I’m hopeful we can all get along.”
It wasn’t long before things went downhill for the former costars. In September of that year, Bri and Kail’s ex-husband were spotted having dinner in New York City, sparking major romance rumors. The two confirmed their relationship and Javi even flew to Orlando with his sons to spend time with Briana and her daughters that October.
The feud between the Teen Mom 3 alum and the “Coffee Convos” podcast host continued before coming to a head when Briana aired Kailyn’s worst-kept secret on social media.
“She doesn’t want to film about breaking and entering into Chris [Lopez’s] momma house and beating him for cutting his child [Lux]’s hair,” Bri alleged via Instagram Story in June 2021, claiming Kail was trying to “cover up the real her or things that are going on in her real life.”
Kail went on to sue Briana for defamation, though, in April 2022, a judge ruled in Bri’s favor.
