Kail Wants to Quit ‘Teen Mom 2’ After Jenelle’s Mom Jokes About Killing Her

Kailyn Lowry and Jenelle Evans have been through their fair share of drama – but it all came to a head in January when Jenelle and her mother, Barbara Evans, went on Instagram Live and made a joke about killing her. While filming a video with Brittany DeJesus, Barbara joked they should “all get lit, and we’ll go kill Kail.”

The comment almost immediately went viral and Kail, 27, quickly got word. “I heard Barb wants to kill me. … Are drunk words sober thoughts?” she tweeted at the time. The incident played out during the Monday, April 15, episode of Teen Mom 2 and was extremely intense.

During the episode, Jenelle and her mom went to Atlanta for a girls’ trip to destress. Even though David Eason wasn’t thrilled about Jenelle traveling without him, she needed a break from the real world and said that she was tired of hearing Kailyn talk about her on her podcast, so off they went.

After a day of shopping, Jenelle and Barbara broke out the wine and beer and went live on Instagram. She added Briana Dejesus’ sister to her stream, too. However, it all came crashing down when producer Kristen called Barbara while the stream was still going on.

The Aftermath

Kristen let the mother-daughter duo know that what they said – despite laughing about it – was serious. “You have to tell Kail you were joking. … There’s a huge s–t storm that you told Kail you wanna kill her. Tell her you were joking, because you are. You don’t want to kill Kail!”


Meanwhile, still live, Jenelle said, “Just chill the f–k out, oh my God. Kail’s probably watching this s–t right now.”


Barbara did tell their viewers that she was joking and Jenelle backed her up, saying that Barbara didn’t quite understand how Instagram works or that she would be taken seriously for what she said. Later, when they discussed the situation, Jenelle and Barbara couldn’t understand why anyone would be offended.


“I think she’s envious of us and us reconnecting,” Jenelle said. “None of her family wants anything to do with her and no one does because of the way she is.”

Over It

Meanwhile, Kail was not happy. With Jo Rivera by her side, they celebrated Isaac’s birthday and the day was happy and drama-free. However, that mood switched when she found out about Jenelle and Barbara’s comments. Producer Kristen came to Kailyn’s house to talk to her about it, and Kail had only known about it because people had shown her screenshots of the stream. Kail said she wasn’t looking for an apology from Barbara or Jenelle.


“I don’t want to be a part of a franchise that allows that kind of behavior,” Kail said. “I’m not getting on Instagram Live talking about killing anyone. Anytime that I talk about them is in response to something else. At some point, you have to choose to disassociate with people and I don’t want to associate with them or the DeJesuses. I just don’t.”


Meanwhile, things were getting more serious between Leah Messer and Jason Jordan, so she decided to go to the doctor to get birth control. Until now, she had been taking Plan B “as needed,” but she wanted something more permanent. Jason went with her to her doctor to find out about her options, and because of the shape of her uterus, an IUD wasn’t an option. She decided to think it over and come back for another appointment.


Later, she ended up getting a prescription for the Nuva Ring again — the same birth control she’d had before. She did want to have more kids in the future, but next time, she wanted it to be a planned pregnancy.
