TEEN Mom Kailyn Lowry’s baby daddy Chris Lopez responded to her claims he’s a “part-time babysitter” & NOT a father.
Kailyn made the accusation in her Instagram Stories where she went on a rant about her ex saying that he doesn’t contribute financially to support his children.
Chris, 27, took to Instagram live to address the MTV star’s claims that he hasn’t picked up the slack in his daddy duties.
“If I’m going to be honest with y’all man, if I was to speak on the drama that went on today, I’d be contradicting myself,” he began.
In the video, a child is heard in the background who appears to be the pair’s youngest son, Creed, one, briefly distracting Chris before he continued.
“If you listen to my last podcast, I said it. I’m not going to keep engaging in this s**t. I already know how it turns out, I’m not gonna do that.
“I’m done, so I’m not speaking on that s**t no more man. I said what I think, that’s cool. I take whatever was said, I take that s**t on the chin, it is what it is. I’m not gonna argue it.”
He went on: “But I came on here to just composite s**t with y’all. I hate getting on the Internet and social media sometimes, and seeing that s**t, I ain’t gonna lie.
“‘Cus it just look dumb. Like I said if it just look dumb in the end. Like, y’all are entertained by this s**t, but it don’t do nothing but draw a wedge in between us.
“So what’s really important? The world or the inner-s**t? The inner-circle, the inner-family and stuff like that,” he added.
“I mean it is what it is, that’s how I’m looking at it right now.”
Kailyn’s vent on social media called out her two youngest children’s father – Chris is also dad to their four-year-old son, Lux – saying that he doesn’t help with the bills.
In her rant, she lashed out saying: “The bar has been set really low for men.
“It’s really annoying and tired and I’m over being called a bitter mom or I’m this and I’m trying to keep my sons away from their dad when you don’t contribute financially.
“When you don’t know what the school schedule is, you don’t know when doctor’s appointments are… Am I bitter or am I doing what I have to do for my children? You guys decide.”
She continued to discuss the “financial burden” she’s facing due to Chris’s lack of support.
“I also wanted to say if you’re only taking care of the financial burden on your 2 per cent of time, you’re not contributing,” she fumed.
“I’m sorry, but when I tell you how much the tuition is and you can’t call to put some amount of money towards that…
“My kids are your little brothers, that’s what they are. You become like a part-time babysitter. I shouldn’t see you on a shed on Instagram Live when you’re supposed to be taking care of my kids
“If you want 50 per cent [custody] that means you have to do 50 per cent of the work. That means you call the school directly for information, you call the doctors.
“I’m no longer holding a grown man’s hand and walking him through fatherhood at 27, 28.”
The Teen Mom star went on: “You guys – all men – need to step up. Show up. I’m just so confused, like… a mom is just expected to do all of it and then the dad doesn’t have to do anything.
“No. Cut the s**t. Cut the s**t. You’re literally a part-time babysitter for your little brothers that’s what’s happening.”
Kailyn’s comments come after Chris claimed on his podcast, P.T.S.D. Pressure Talks with Single Dads, that she deliberately gets along with Javi and Jo and not with him.
“How the f**k you get along with everybody but me? It’s a choice!” he claimed.
Chris added: “Let’s talk about co-parenting. It’s a challenge. It’s probably the hardest thing I’ve ever dealt with in my life.
“It’s frustrating as hell, to a whole new level… you ever just sit there and think, ‘Why? Why does it got to be like this?’”
The exes have had serious disagreements in the past, even involving physical altercations.
In September 2020, Kailyn, 29, was arrested after “punching Chris several times with a closed fist” after he cut Lux’s hair without her permission.
In February, The Sun exclusively revealed that the charges against Kailyn were dropped.
