Speaking on Perez Hilton’s Barely Famous podcast, Kailyn revealed: “Teen Mom, you know the ratings are really dropping for us…I feel like there does come a time where it’s run its course, and I think that goes for every reality show.”
She then clarified that she has no interest in filming further seasons.
“I don’t think so,” said the 30-year-old.
“Right now, the way I look at it, I just don’t want to.”
She also revealed that she didn’t feel that she was offered enough money to film further episodes, and that was “part of” her reason for leaving.
Kailyn told Perez that the earnings she makes from her three podcasts combined are greater than the salary she gets as a Teen Mom star.
The confirmation from the Pennsylvania-native comes amid months of speculation that she was walking away from the franchise.
During a previous episode of the current season of Teen Mom 2, viewers were met with the on-screen message that Kailyn, “informed production that she will no longer be filming.”
Last year, she told her followers that she was not filming new episodes after she was unhappy that MTV hired her baby daddy, Chris Lopez.
The mom-of-four is also looking to step out on her own, after teasing her fans on social media about a potential spin-off.
In an Instagram post, Kailyn shared a pic of her through the camera lens as she was recording for a project.
She teased the snap as the potential scene in her own spin-off show, writing: “Could y’all picture #KailandtheChaos as a show?! Imagine this is my first confessional.”
Speaking to Perez, she said: “I personally feel like I have enough going on to do my own show.”
The podcaster added: “Unless they [MTV] want to offer that to me, or they want to work on something like that. I just don’t know.
“Why am I going to take a pay cut to do the same amount of work and also not be able to tell my story with full transparency? I want to do that, despite what other people may say.”
BEEF WITH BRI
Kailyn’s decision to quit comes amid her ongoing feud with castmate Briana DeJesus.
Their beef reached a showdown in the courts after Kailyn sued Briana for defamation.
However, Briana emerged victorious after the case was dismissed.
The Teen Mom 2 stars faced off when Kailyn accused her castmate of making “false” comments about her physically abusing her ex Chris.
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 Briana notice that she was about to file the lawsuit, but she didn’t comply.
