Kailyn has mad no secret her issues with her parents.


In 2020, the reality star slammed her dad, Raymond, as a "f**king joke" after he bashed Teen Mom.

Raymond wasn't present throughout much of Kailyn's life.

Still, he slammed the MTV reality show as a "bad show," adding that it shouldn't be watched by "young girls."

Kailyn said at the time that shelast saw Raymond in 2009, when she visited him in Texas while pregnant with son Isaac.

The interaction, captured by the network's cameras, left Kailyn upset as Raymond borrowed money from her and criticized her for getting pregnant.

Later, Raymond lashed out at his portrayalon the showa decade prior.

He wrote on Facebook: "I was on the show too and they made me look bad. I know what you mean about shouldn't have to defend yourself."

He went on:"I personally don't think that show is good for young girls to watch. I think it gives them the wrong idea about being a parent so young among other things.

"It's just a bad show I think. Sorry for your bad experience on the show. Been there. Love ya."

Raymond had been replying to Kailyn's sister Mikaila, who was defending herself against her own portrayal on Teen Mom 2.

Kailynwrote back to Raymond: "No that's a f**king joke. Don't even start this s**t."

She added: "You haven't been around or tried with either of us nor paid child support so get the f**k outta here."


The star previously opened up about her lack of relationship with her dad in her memoir, Pride Over Pity.

“From what I was told, I was a very sick baby, run down by pneumonia. Instead of taking me to the doctor as was planned, my mother says that my dad whisked me away from Pennsylvania to Texas to raise me on his own," she wrote.

"He did take me to the hospital once we arrived, but my mother came after him with detectives and lawyers and eventually got me back."

They lost touch but reconnected over Facebook and Kailyn traveled to Texas with a camera crew to meet Raymond.

She described him as having a mullet, missing teeth and being "a foot shorter" than she'd pictured.

Kail continued: “He had told me he lived in a cozy two bedroom house, but the home he brought me to turned out to be a little shack.”

The reality star added that Raymond asked to borrow money from her for a Dunkin' Donuts breakfast.

"Bumming money off of me, his pregnant teenage daughter, was the last straw in the haystack for me,” she wrote.

He also "judged" her for being pregnant.

“He was adamant that if he had been around, I wouldn’t be pregnant. I understood his sentiment toward my circ*mstances, but I felt he had no right to judge. Raymond [Lowry’s father] hadn’t been around for my childhood. He wasn’t there for me as I messed up my teenage years,” she wrote.

During another episode of the show, Kailyn arranged to see sister Mikaila when she was in Dallas for a work meeting, and was looking forward to her four sons meeting their aunt and cousin.

“I don’t have a relationship with my sister. Like on a day-to-day basis, we don’t ever speak. I don’t text her. She doesn’t text me and we just don’t have that kind of relationship. But I think I wish my kids knew my family because they are so close to their dads’ side,” she said.

Kailyn wasn’t surprised that her sister canceled, however, saying: “It just sucks because I feel like I’ve been the one making the effort.

“It’s like she looks for every excuse. I likely won’t reach out again."

After the episode, Mikaila alleged that she was bitten by a dog.

On Facebook, she wrote: "For those of y'all that still keep up with teen mom 2 I need to speak a trad on my side of the story. I got bit by a dog. That is NOT something to laugh at, mock, or make a joke about.

"I was lucky to not have nerve damage. I had fat oozing out of my wound. I had a hard time walking for a week. I don't like being made to look like the bad guy WHEN I AM NOT."

Mikaila added: "If you know me you know that I would drop everything in a heartbeat for ANYONE.

"I can't put other people's needs above my health. I just can't. There's two sides to every story. Wish I could've defended myself."
