Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry used to not get alongside along with her ex’s spouse. Jo Rivera, the daddy of Lowry’s first youngster, married a girl named Vee Torres in 2018 (Lowry attended the marriage). Though Lowy and Torres are associates today, the ladies had a tense relationship when Torres started relationship Rivera.
In her 2014 guide, Pride Over Pity, Lowry goes into why precisely she had it in for Rivera’s then-girlfriend.
Kailyn Lowry didn’t approve of Vee Torres’ smoking and ingesting
“I had no jealousy or hatred for his new girlfriend, only anger. He had started seeing a girl who I suspected might be a pot smoker. I hadn’t smoked weed singe I got pregnant with Isaac and it is something I no longer want in our lives. I had expected others would respect that I did not want my son to be around mind-altering substances,” wrote Lowry.
Based on Torres’ social media, Lowry had a sense Rivera’s then-girlfriend casually drank and smoked marijuana.
“She posted pictures online of herself wearing a gas mask and smoking out of what looked like a bong. It seemed this was beyond an anxiety reducing self-medicating pastime. I was afraid it was a bad habit my son could potentially pick up one day. There was no way I wanted Isaac to be around weed or alcohol. I understand the full, detrimental repercussions. All I asked of Jo was that he keep Isaac away from it,” wrote Lowry.
Eventually, Lowry got here throughout just a few posts that led her to imagine Torres had been ingesting round Isaac.
“I was furious. If true, there was nothing I could do about the situation, but I didn’t want her around my son,” she wrote.
Lowry acquired quite a lot of backlash from followers about her response to Torres’ ingesting. She says the messages she acquired “infuriated [her] more than typical hate mail.” Lowry’s particularly delicate about ingesting as a result of she grew up with an alcoholic mom. So she feels strongly about not having her youngsters round alcohol.
Kailyn Lowry says she was simply making an attempt to guard her son
Lowry says, again when Rivera and Torres first began relationship, her anger was by no means about who Torres was as an individual and even that she was along with her ex, she simply felt involved for her son’s well-being.
“I’m not jealous. The Jo of my life was over long ago. I’ve given up on providing Isaac with two parents who are together yet miserable,” she wrote.
Lowry continued: “She will never see where I’m coming from, and I’d rather not waste any more breath trying to explain why I can’t pretend to like her or reason with her. It’s done. I’ll always be the bad person. I’ll always be the bitter ex.”
Little did Lowry know, just a few years later she’d be saying she loves Torres and hates Rivera.
