Teen Mom Briana DeJesus vows to SUE Kailyn Lowry to collect $120K in legal fees after judge dismisses defamation lawsuit

BRIANA DeJesus has vowed to fight back against Kailyn Lowry after their defamation lawsuit landed her with $120k in legal fees.

The Teen Mom 2 star previously celebrated her victory against her nemesis co-star after the case was dismissed.

But Briana, 27, has not been satisfied with the outcome as she has planned to sue Kailyn, 30, for the legal fees she's accrued, a total of $120,096.87 according to Celebuzz.

The reality star's lawyer Marc Randazza told The Sun: "The anti-slapp law gives us the right to seek attorneys' fees, and we intend to get Ms. Soto every penny to which she is entitled."


Earlier this week, the TV personality confirmed her victory against her co-star in their defamation lawsuit.

The Sun confirmed that Briana won the defamation case against Kailyn after Celebuzz broke the news on Monday.

The pair faced off in court last month after Kailyn accused Briana of making "false" comments about her physically abusing her ex Chris Lopez.

The mother of four sued her castmate for publicly suggesting that she beat up her baby daddy Chris on Twitter.

Briana then filed for the case to be dismissed and the judge agreed.

“I won,” Briana told Celebuzz in a short statement.

According to documents obtained by The Sun, the case was dismissed in favor of the Florida native, as the judge found Kailyn's claims to be unfounded.


The judge agreed with Briana that Kailyn was required to give her notice that she was about to file the lawsuit, but she didn't comply.

In regards to Briana's online comments, the court official said: "The written post cannot be considered defamatory because, as a matter of law, it contained protected speech regarding opinion or was factually accurate."

The judge added: "It was widely publicized that Lowry had been arrested for domestic violence and Soto’s comments on the issue were substantially true.

"The damage to Lowry’s reputation, if any, had already occurred when the incident was publicized by news media."


The Sun has extensively reported on the nasty legal war between the co-stars. 

In Kail’s initial complaint against Briana filed in June, her legal team claimed that her co-star’s comments are false and were made "for the purpose of causing Lowry harm."

The court papers continued: "Defendant used Lowry to gain additional media attention for herself." 

Kailyn then explained their long-standing feud in the court papers filed on June 25, which began when Briana joined Teen Mom 2 in 2017. 

The TV star claimed that her castmate "has a history of making false public statements regarding Lowry’s family life,” including when she allegedly responded to a Twitter user, “[Lowry] gets beat the f**k up by Chris in front of her kids.”

Kailyn also mentioned when she was excluded from the June 8, 2021, Teen Mom 2 episode. 

Briana claimed she wasn’t included because she allegedly “committed violent, physical crimes towards Mr. Lopez. Defendant also asserted that Lowry was arrested for breaking and entering into the home of Mr. Lopez’s mother.” 

She alleged that Kailyn “didn’t want to film” about the alleged incident. 

The Pennsylvania native claimed she did not break into Chris’ mother’s home or beat him up. 

She said the statements “threatened” her “ability to earn a living" and that she suffered “personal humiliation and mental anguish.” 

The MTV star requested $30,000, reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees, and a jury trial. 

In Briana’s answer to the complaint, her attorney claimed his client could not have defamed Kailyn with "false" stories because she was arrested for the alleged assault on her ex. 

The attorney wrote: “She verifiably was arrested for thisand her arrest garnered media attention.”
