The Sun previously reported the mom of four was arrested on September 26 for offensive touching, though she denied the fight turned physical to police.

According to Delaware court papers, the incident took place on September4 during a custody exchange for their oldest son Lux, 3.

Chris reported the “domestic incident” on the day of the offense, but police didn’t contact him back until September 25.

The court papers read: “Christopher advised that on 9/04/2020… he was struck by his ex-girlfriend, Kailyn Lowry, several times with a closed fist.



“Christopher stated that Kailyn and his mother had arranged to have a custodial swap for Lux Lowry at his residence.”

When Kailyn noticed Chris had given Lux a haircut, he claimed she “returned to the residence and started attacking him [and] punching him several times on the head and upper torso because she did not want the child’s hair cut.”

The court papers continued: “Christopher stated that he did not fight back, and that Kailyn then left the residence.”

Chris told police there is anactive protection from abuse order against himfiled by Kailyn.


Chris’ sister told cops that she “attempted to pull Kailyn off" her brother.

His mom also confirmed the incident to authorities.

Police made contact with Kailyn over the phone, as she said she “was at the residence to pick up Lux.

“Kailyn stated she was upset because Christopher cut Lux’s hair. Kailyn stated that the dispute never became physical.”



Kailyn wasarrested the following dayon September 26.

A no-contact order was issued and Kail is to have “no contact, direct or indirect” with Chris.

A rep for Kailyn released in a statement: “Ms. Lowry has filed a petition for custody in the matter involving her children Lux and Creed.

"The judge in the Delaware Family Court has ordered the parties to refrain from discussing all domestic matters until after the hearing next year.

“Currently, Ms. Lowry has been awarded sole custody of the children despite the allegations pending in Family Court.

"Ms. Lowry does deny all of the allegations but cannot respond specifically at this time due to the orders of the judge.”


The Sun previously reportedKailyn entered a “not guilty” plea, as she filed a Waiver of Arraignment instead of appearing in court for the scheduled hearing.

She shares Lux, 3, with Chris, as well as Creed, whoshe welcomed in July.

TheTeen Mom 2star, who is also mom to son Isaac, 11, with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera and Lincoln, 6, with ex-husband Javi Marroquin,called out Chris on social media in Septemberfor cutting their oldest son’s locks without asking her first.
