It's more complicated than it seemed!
While Kailyn Lowry was pregnant with Lux, it was nearly impossible to learn anything about baby-daddy-number-three Chris Lopez. He kept his identity hidden for as long as he could — for a while — even Kailyn wouldn’t reveal who had gotten her pregnant for the third time. Before she gave birth, whether or not Chris would even show up at the hospital to welcome his son into the world was even up for debate!
Now that Lux has been born, though, it seems that the opposite is true. Far from staying out of the headlines, Chris Lopez and Kailyn Lowry seem to find new ways to get their custody problems into the headlines daily.
An insider close to Kailyn recently revealed that Kailyn “banned” Chris Lopez from seeing their son, but the reasons as to why were previously slightly murky. It appeared that Kailyn was frustrated with Chris for not signing Lux’s birth certificate. Now, it looks like there might be more to the situation than meets the eye, and now the real reason that Kailyn banned Chris is finally out.
Last week, it came out that Kailyn had banned Chris from seeing their son, Lux. Although the reasons seemed clear at the time, The Ashley reached out to Kailyn to get the inside look at the story. While Kailyn confirmed that she had, indeed, banned Chris, the reasons as to why are more complicated than they seem.
“I don’t want to keep Lux from Chris. That’s not the goal,” Kailyn said in the interview. “The goal is to take some time right now to figure out what works for us. I’ve obviously been through this before and I do want Lux to eventually have a relationship with his dad. Right now the circumstances aren’t right for that, though.”
The primary reason for her hesitations initially appeared to be that Chris refused to sign paternity papers for Lux when he was first born. Now, it looks like there’s more to it than that.
According to The Ashley Chris hasn’t signed for paternity of Lux. What he has done is filed for custody of his son. Despite this frustration, Kailyn may have even more pressing reasons to ban Chris from seeing Lux that she doesn’t want getting out.
“She’s trying her best to keep the real reason off the show,” a production source said in an interview with The Ashley. They added that, “So far, the drama with Chris hasn’t really been covered for the show, but that’s only because it is hard to do when Chris won’t sign on to appear or have his name on ‘Teen Mom 2.’”
As for the real reason, it may be more dangerous than we initially thought.
“Chris was violent with Kail multiple times, once while she was holding the baby,” the source told The Ashley, claiming that they had personally witnessed the incident. They also claimed that Chris tried to break into Kailyn’s house, damaging her door and window, all to see Lux.
“Some of the film crew noticed a hole was punched in Kail’s garage door, and she confided in someone on the crew that Chris did it,” the source went on. “Nothing was filmed about it, though.”
According to them, Kailyn desperately wants this to stay off of the air. “Kail is really trying to keep this off the show because of how bad she got ripped by fans last time when she was dealing with Javi,” they said.
In the meantime, Chris has no legal rights to Lux according to the source. “Until Chris signs the paperwork acknowledging paternity, he has no rights to Lux,” they said.
When fans on Reddit saw this update, though, they were far from shocked. “In other words, Kail made a huge mistake having another baby with a guy she barely knows,” wrote user catelynnscarlyblanke. “Got it.”
User brittany16691 added their two cents:
“And [she] has to struggle to get custody arrangements, complain that nobody is there to watch her kids when she needs them to because she pushes everybody away with her dramatic life, file more PFA’s and we all know that the second she can safely have a baby again, she will. Got that too.”
“This situation is all kinds of f**ked up, and I’m honestly over Kail acting like her dramastic life is cute,” wrote user _valleyone_. They continued:
“She is ruining her kids lives, and I’m tired of people calling her a great mom because she is just barely narcissistic enough to keep them well-groomed and polite.
Kail rushed this ‘miracle baby,’ seemingly without Chris’s consent, while still married, and now is trying to keep the baby away from him either because a) she never wanted to deal with another baby daddy b) or because their relationship didn’t work out. Either way, she’s a fucking idiot for so many reasons.
Chris, meanwhile, is an idiot of epic proportions. Instead of breaking into Kail’s home, as alleged, he should be getting his ass down to a courthouse and filing the proper paperwork to get custody and visitation arranged.”
