Jo Rivera: Kailyn Lowry Is Screwing Me on Child Support!

It's not clear exactly how much money the Teen Mom 2 cast is worth.

Their salaries are generally agreed to be in the $300,000 per year range, but that doesn't tell the entire story of their wealth.

Take Kailyn Lowry, for example.

Like her co-stars, Kail rakes in six figures simply by living her life in front of the cameras.

But she also benefits from several other revenue streams, including a podcast, several bestselling memoirs, and a line of hair care products.

So we don't know exactly how much Kail is worth, but it's safe to say she's quite well off.

So for many, the recent revelation that Jo Rivera -- the father of Kail's oldest son Isaac -- is seeking child support came as no great surprise.

But for reasons that aren't entirely clear, Jo took a ton of flak on Twitter when fans learned (via a recent Teen Mom 2 preview) that he filed for support.

“The gap is absolutely incredible between what I make and what she makes,” Jo tweeted in his own defense.

"I run two businesses outside of MTV and work 5-7 days a week but I should go get a job?” Jo wrote on Wednesday.

“I’m STILL paying child support and you think I shouldn’t fight that? Jan 11th I had to pay almost 2 grand to [Kail]. You know nothing and spew out lies.”

While many only became aware of the situation this week, Kail first spoke publicly about her battle with Jo several months ago.

“I could see…if one parent is struggling at 50/50, it’s warranted,” Kail said on her podcast back in November.

“But if you’re not financially struggling, and the child does not live two different lifestyles in each home, to me you’re just being greedy and you’re just doing it because you can," she added.

"I don’t think that’s fair. Like I said, I’m not against child support.

“If a man makes less than the mother, and they’re in a situation where they need it, and it’s warranted, OK fine. But he’s just being greedy.”

Lowry was considerably more outspoken in the recent preview.

While speaking on the phone with Jo, Kail remarked:

“You are not doing this in the benefit of Isaac. I don’t really have anything to say to you so go f--k yourself!”

As The Ashley's Reality Roundup points out, Jo actually receives the same salary per episode as Kail -- he just appears in far fewer episodes.

Jo married Vee Torres last year, and interestingly, the feud between the exes doesn't seem to have affected Kail's friendship with Vee.

Torres promoted Lowry's hair care line on social media as recently as last week.

Kailyn Lowry Responds to Having Her Life Threatened by Jenelle’s Mother

Kailyn Lowry is pretty pissed off at the moment.

And we can't really blame her.

We'd be rather upset, too, if the mother of our chief rival openly said she wanted to see us murdered.

We're not exaggerating here.

On Saturday, Jenelle Evans and her mom, Barbara, recorded an Instagram Live video with fellow Teen Mom star Brittany DeJesus.

Jenelle and Kailyn used to be pretty close, but have been at odds for about two years now, ever since Evans revealed to the world that Lowry was pregnant with her third baby... without Kailyn giving her consent to do so.

DeJesus, meanwhile, dated Kailyn's ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, for a few months in early 2018.

This created plenty of tension between the MTV personalities on its own -- but we're pretty certain Javi cheated on Brittany with Kailyn, creating quite the awkward mess for all involved.

So, in other words, this Instagram Live video over the weekend featured three people who really don'y like Kailyn at all.

And Barbara wasted no time in making this known.

As outlined in detail via the slideshow above, the trio were chatting at one point when Barbara said they should “all get lit and we’ll go kill Kail."


They all laughed before Jenelle told her mom, “Oh, my god, we’re on live, Mom. You can’t say that sh-t.”

The incident - which may very well have been a PR stunt for the show - even prompted a call from a Teen Mom producer, who was seen telling off Barbara in another video Jenelle shared online.

“They think we’re gonna hurt Kail,” Evans says in this video, adding sarcastically: “I’m so sorry, Kail, I didn’t mean to do that. I’m not gonna hurt you.”

We don't know whether Lowry is actually afraid for her life, but she's definitely angry about this dangerous exchange.

“I want no association with any person or network that works with that family,” Kailyn told In Touch Weekly over the weekend.

As for Barbara, who has clashed hard with her own daughter many times on Teen Mom 2?

"I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree," Kailyn continued. "I have three kids to live for, just like Barbara herself. I’m disgusted it came from her."

Digusted, absolutely.

But how surprised should we really be, having watch Barbara on television so frequently over the years?

“Everybody took it out of perspective,” Barbara said after ending the call with the producer, insisting she’s always gotten along just fine with Lowry.

“That’s not really what I meant. I was just doing a joke," she added.

Jenelle, who recently burned a peace offering from Lowry, also tried to defend her mother after the initial uproar over her death threat.

"My mom has not been on Instagram or Facebook in a long time. I mean, come on," she said.

"The old generation, you just got to give them the benefit of the doubt.

"They don't know what they're talking about, they don't know that this sh-t will be taken seriously if they say it."

Kailyn and Jenelle's feud was reignited once again a few weeks ago when Lowry Tweeted that the show's crew will not work with Jenelle's because "they're afraid of her husband [David Eason]."

"I will not be attending any type of reunion on the same day or weekend as Jenelle & David for the same reasons," Kailyn wrote on January 2.

Jenelle then replied as follow in an Instagram video of her own:

"My husband DOES NOT interfere with filming. Producers get angry when David is going to be at my child's soccer games, or if I go to LA to do business, etc….they CHOOSE not to come."

Speaking to Us Weekly about her rival after Lowry said she wanted nothing to do with Jenelle or David, Evans said simply:

“I don’t like the person she is. You can never really trust her.”
