Now Kailyn, 30, and Leah, 29, have hit another bump in the road as their friendship has once again become strained over recent events.
The frenemies first met when the mother of three joined the cast of 16 & Pregnant for season two.
Her blonde counterpart had been with the network from the first season of the show, and the two instantly sparked a connection.
However, things became touchy between the girls in December of 2019, when Leah was said to have joined an alleged cult, the self-help group called Mastery in Transformational Training.
RadarOnline.com obtained text messages between Kail and a fan who discussed joining the organization with Leah that year.
Kailyn allegedly said in the text messages: “I really don’t know what to do. I don’t want to lose her as a friend, but I also don’t think any of this is ok.
“Unfortunately those programs target weak people who can be manipulated.”
LEAH’S CLAP BACK
Then, the author of Hope, Grace & Faith seemingly slammed Kailyn in January for posting a clickbait article on Instagram about her three daughters being “in danger” because of her involvement with the controversial organization.
In January of 2020, Leah seemed to clap back at her ex-bestie on Instagram, in the rant.
“I’m so grateful to be in a place financially that I don’t have to promote bs degrading articles to make a dollar,” she said.
“Is the money worth that much to you? I choose to use any platform I have to inspire and uplift others, and that’s what I’ll continue to do.”
She ended the rant with: ”Leave my daughter’s positive messages out of your pathetic beliefs. I still love you all. Just do better with the massive platform you’ve been blessed with!”
CUTTING OFF ‘DEAD ENDS’
Then in February, Leah didn’t join Kailyn for their planned trip to Iceland, and she also didn’t like Kailyn’s pregnancy announcement ahead of her son Creed’s birth.
Leah, who is mom to twins Ali and Aleeah, 10, and Adalynn, 7, re-tweeted at the time of the vacation: “You have to intentionally cut off your dead ends in order to grow and flourish.”
BACK TO BESTIES
But over Instagram Live in March, Leah said of their relationship: “Kail and I are still friends. I love her. Our kids love each other.”
By July of 2021, all tensions seemed to have been lifted as Leah and Kailyn embarked on a trip to the Dominican Republic together with their brood of children.
A video of the pair was posted to Reddit where the two are laughing while Leah attempted to braid Kailyn’s hair.
Kailyn jokingly referred to her Teen Mom 2 costar as “girl mom,” with the caption: “Leah says Kail didn’t brush her hair 😂”
Fans commented on the MTV star’s close bond, with one saying: “They seem to genuinely have fun together.”
Another agreed, saying: “I’m sorry for this but I love their friendship.”
While another replied: “I agree. They are pretty cute here.”
During the family vacation, Leah revealed that she got to meet Kailyn’s baby boy Creed, who was 11 months, for the first time.
The Teen Mom 2 star happily held Kailyn’s youngest son in one snap, which she captioned: “Finally got to meet this sweet little guy.”
Leah added a sticker that read “obsessed” over the caption, while she also tagged Kailyn and Creed’s Instagram accounts.
BYE BYE LEAH
The two’s friendship seemed solidified after the tropical vacation, but recently their issues reemerged.
Last week, Kailyn went on a wild unfollowing spree on Instagram, leaving only 11 people on her “follow” list.
The TV star admitted to being “depressed” as fans believed the reality star has been fired from the MTV show.
She tweeted: “Depression is kicking my a**.”
Later, in an Instagram Story, Kailyn shared her feelings in a Boomerang clip looking sullen as captioned her post: “How I feel about the f**kery I woke up to.”
Included in her mass unfollowing was Leah, despite their over a decade of friendship.
One fan made the shocking realization and took to Reddit where they opened up a discussion about the star’s choice.
Alongside a screenshot of her profile, the follower also shared a photo from a past Q&A session where the TV personality explained that she “unfollowed everyone” because she doesn’t “trust anyone.”
“Kail unfollows people she ‘doesn’t trust,'” the fan captioned their post.
“Damn imagine if you’re actually her friend and she pulls some s**t like that. No wonder why she never keeps any,” a second noted.
“Wait, I thought her and Leah were best friends. Wtf did i miss?” one wrote.
All this comes as fans have speculated that the TV star could have been fired from the long-running series.
Among the rumors, Kailyn reportedly has not filmed with the network in over six months.
Then, over the weekend Leah appeared to hit back at her ex-bestie in an angry new TikTok.
The girl-mom made her feelings known by sharing a video of her rapping the words “hold up b***h” in a telling post.
The clip showed the mom of three lip singing the song Do We Have a Problem? by Nicki Minaj and Lil Baby.
The reality star included the message: “When my kindness is taken for weakness…”
