The Sun can exclusively reveal an excerpt from Briana’s March 7, 2021 deposition where she claims the crew dislikes working with the “not so nice” star.
Briana claimed she heard the rumor of Kailyn and her baby daddy’s altercation through Chris himself and crew members.
Briana explained in the deposition: “I overheard conversations within the crew that filmed with me, whether they’re on their lunch break, or they’re just gossiping while smoking a cigarette.
“I overheard some conversations and how most of the crew hates working with Kail, and they would get into detail about the things that she has done to the crew. And she’s not so nice.
“And yeah, they pretty much say things. It’s in my house, so I am listening. It’s on my property. I’m here. I can hear it all.”
When Kailyn’s lawyer questioned the gossip, Briana explained that she “believes” the crew, as she thinks they have “shared facts” about her to other cast members as well.
She added: “We all work with the same crew… Crew talks.”
MTV did not immediately respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
Back in 2018, Kailyn clashed with her producer JC Cueva, as she refused to continue working with him.
She accused him on Twitter of having a role in her on-air brawl with Briana and her sister, as Brittany was able to get behind Kail and pull her hair.
During the reunion show brawl, JC was seen holding back Kail’s friend backstage, preventing her from aiding the star.
She was given a new field producer and JC was reassigned to a different cast member.
Kailyn has appeared on the current season of Teen Mom 2, but stopped filming when they signed on her baby daddy Chris.
Her future with the franchise is currently up in the air.
BRI IN COURT
As The Sun previously reported, Briana attended a court hearing in Florida on Tuesday for Judge Robert J. Egan to rule on her anti-slapp motion, which protects a person’s freedom of speech, that she filed to have the case dismissed.
In photos obtained by The Sun, Briana was seen smiling alongside her lawyer, Marc J. Randazza, as they left the courtroom.
Briana and her attorney seemed confident after the hearing, as they were spotted giving each other a high-five.
‘I FEEL GOOD!’
Briana exclusively told a Sun reporter after the hearing: “I’m okay. I feel good.”
In video taken by The Sun, her lawyer seemed pleased with the hearing, as he said: “Alright, let’s go celebrate!”
Despite the early celebration, Judge Egan did not rule to dismiss the case yet, as the judge will review the information presented at the hearing and make a decision at a later date.
While Briana appeared in person for the hearing, Delaware resident Kailyn’s attorney could be seen attending over Zoom.
MTV cameras were not present to film the hearing for Teen Mom 2.
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 went into their long-standing feud in the court papers filed on June 25, which began when Briana joined Teen Mom 2 in 2017.
Kailyn claimed Briana “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 mentioned in the lawsuit 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.”
Briana alleged Kailyn “didn’t want to film” about the alleged incident.
Kailyn claimed she did not break into Chris’ mother’s home or beat him up.
She claimed the statements “threatened” her “ability to earn a living” and that she suffered “personal humiliation and mental anguish.”
She requested $30,000, reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees, and a jury trial.
BRIANA FIGHTS BACK
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 this, and her arrest garnered media attention.”
Briana’s lawyer called Kailyn’s lawsuit “meritless” and demanded the entire case be dismissed.
Also in the court documents, Kailyn alleged Briana claimed she obtained the arrest information from “credible source” Chris, 27.
Briana also credited the source of the information as “production,” meaning the producers and crew that film Teen Mom 2.
The Sun was the first to report on Kailyn’s offensive touching charges against Chris, which were later dropped.
FIGHT OVER SEXUAL HISTORY
The legal war has been nasty, as their latest fight involved Briana fighting to keep her sexual history confidential.
Earlier this month, Briana’s lawyer filed a Motion for a Protective Order to ban Kailyn from seeking information about her “sexual relationship with a third party” without confidentiality protection during her March 7 deposition.
Kailyn then filed to dismiss Briana’s request to keep the sex details confidential.
After a judge allegedly denied Kailyn’s request, she asked for Briana’s motion for a protective order to be “set aside.”
Kailyn’s lawyer argued that nothing in Briana’s deposition “should deserve the classification of confidential.”
But Briana’s lawyer fought back, claiming Kailyn “abandoned her vexatious attempt to have [Briana’s] sexual history protected from the public, and now “attempts to engage in further gamesmanship” by arguing the request should be “set aside” and “moot.”
The court papers read: “This bad faith [motion] argues that the filing of Ms. DeJesus’ deposition transcript – which contains no confidential information – somehow waives Ms. DeJesus’ right to seek protection from providing future answers in a resumed deposition that has not even occurred yet.”
He claims the redacted portions Kailyn provided to the court “contain no confidential information.”
Briana’s lawyer continued that this argument “has reached the point of absurdity.”
The court papers read: “Ms. Lowry and her counsel have now filed a second round of bad faith and misleading motions to try and obscure the fact that all of this ink has been spilled because [Kailyn’s attorney] lacked the class and professionalism to agree that questions about private sexual conduct should be kept confidential.”
He is asking the court to deny Kailyn’s motion to set aside the protective order and to make it clear that her counsel “attempts to mislead this court with material falsehood should come to an end.”
The stars have been feuding ever since Briana joined Teen Mom 2 in 2017, as she began dating Kailyn’s ex-husband, Javi Marroquin.
