‘Teen Mom’ News Pile: Mackenzie McKee is Relocating, Leah Messer’s Baby Daddies Are Still Feuding & More

“I’m outta here!”

From (not) moving past a feud to moving to another state, the stars of the ‘Teen Mom’ franchise (both past and present) have been keeping themselves busy lately! 

In an effort to get you up-to-date on the latest Teen Mom OG, Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and Teen Mom 2 news, The Ashley brings you the Teen Mom News Pile. Here are some of the major (and minor but interesting) ‘Teen Mom’-related things that have happened over the last week or so…

Mackenzie McKee reveals she’s moving herself, her kids & her business to Florida. 

“It’s that state down there at the bottom with all the swamps and stuff.”

‘Teen Mom OG’ star Mackenzie announced this week on social media that she’s leaving her home state of Oklahoma next week, with plans to relocate to the small community of Lakewood Ranch in Sarasota, Florida. 

Mackenzie revealed her plans during an Instagram Q&A, telling her followers she’s “ready to grow [her] career elsewhere.” 

Mackenzie added that after being in her “tiny hometown” her whole life, she believes it’s time for a change. 

” … I’m at a point in my life where I’m ready to see what else is out there, grow my career, heal, get away, show my kids more to life,” she added. “I could only grow so much here.” 

When asked how the upcoming move would change her co-parenting relationship with her baby daddy Josh McKee, Mackenzie said they “are just going to figure out how to make it work.” 

Mackenzie did not suggest Josh would be relocating to Florida in order to “make it work.”

“I wonder if Florida has a Billy Bob’s.”

Leah Messer reveals that her exes Jeremy Calvert & Corey Simms are still not getting along.

…and the bad blood between Leah’s baby daddies boils on.

Leah’s baby daddies got into a bit of a social media squabble back in December 2019, as a result of comment made during last season’s ‘Teen Mom 2’ reunion and according to Leah, the two have yet to make nice with each other.

“Dang it, why can’t y’all just roll around in the mud and call one of them truces?”

As you may recall, the argument began when Dr. Pot Stirrer Drew asked Jeremy if he and Corey got along, which turned into Jeremy calling out Corey for not going to his daughter Alis doctors appointments – claims that Corey later denied online. Corey then shaded Jeremy’s parenting skills as well. 

When reflecting on the reunion chaos, Leah told TooFab this week that the argument ultimately opened up a line of communication that she never had with Corey, though the same can’t be said for Corey and Jeremy. 

“And as far as Jeremy and Corey go, they never talk,” she said. “They don’t even talk and we won’t be having [an in-person] reunion this year, so that’s a good thing in my opinion.

“In-person or virtual, you’re still gonna see this mug and this blazer on your screen.”

“We don’t need a reunion, we’ll do it virtually, because Corey was posting on his Twitter like, ‘I’m gonna be at the next reunion,’ and I’m like, ‘Oh, please don’t,'” she continued. 

An (almost) baby daddy of a Beaver got arrested.

“Ding dang-it!”

Another person associated with the Beaver clan was thrown in the slammer recently…but this time it wasn’t Malorie!

The convict in question this time is Jacob Russell…aka the guy Rachel Beaver thought may be the father of her daughter, Hazlee. Jacob— who was the best friend of Rachel’s actual baby daddy, Drew Brooks—was arrested on August 25 in Tennessee and charged with Vandalism and Resisting Arrest.

In his mugshot, Jacob is sporting some snazzy man-bangs, as well as a dazed look.

But…why is he shirtless?!

According to court records obtained by The Ashley, Jacob is due in court for the Resisting Arrest charge on Monday, and then will be back again on Tuesday to face the Vandalism charge. 

During an episode of ‘Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant,’ Rachel talked about how she wasn’t sure if Drew or Jacob fathered her daughter.

“Because I’ve been on and off with [Drew] and his best friend Jacob, Drew isn’t convinced that the baby is his and hasn’t even been there for me at all,” Rachel said. “Jacob would definitely care more for Hazlee and take care for her a lot better than Drew would. I hope the baby is Jacob’s.”

Later on Instagram, Rachel stated that she had always known that Drew was the father.

“I wanted a family so bad and Drew didn’t want to be there for her and Jacob did,” she told her fans. 

While Jacob isn’t Hazlee’s dad, he does have something in common with Drew— a tendency to land behind bars. As The Ashley previously reported, Drew was recently released from jail himself after serving a three-month sentence.

Kail Lowry talks about the possibility of using IVF to have a baby girl & why her videos of son Creed’s birth won’t be shown on ‘Teen Mom 2’.

Kail, casually waiting for someone to mention Chris so she can talk about him, too.

‘Teen Mom 2’ star Kail Lowry took to Instagram on Friday for a Q&A with fans, during which she talked business ventures, “maybe” birthing a daughter one day and the reason she hasn’t shared any videos from her son Creed’s birth. 

After someone accused her of “only having so many kids” because of the money she makes from MTV, Kail spoke on the opportunities the show has provided, assuring any doubters she “will do whatever it takes to provide” for her kids.

“Yes, MTV pays me for [‘Teen Mom 2’],” she said. “But MTV did not get my bachelors degree for me, start [Pothead Hair Care] for me. MTV does not record [Coffee Convos podcast] every week. I took an opportunity presented to me and I launched myself in several different directions. And when the show ends I WILL STILL be able to provide.” 

The mother-of-four was also asked if she would ever consider doing IVF with a female embryo to add a daughter to her current family full of boys. Kail said the option was a “maybe.” 

“Ummm. I joke about doing this all the time but I don’t know if I would,” she said. “Maybe.” 

(Kail previously revealed that she’s not planning to stop at the four kids she has currently.) 

As for the videos of her newborn son’s home birth, Kail broke the news to her fans that the footage most likely will not see the light of day. 

“I wish I could but my videos are only vaginal POV so I don’t think that’s gonna work,” she revealed. 

Jo, still scarred from watching Kail give birth to Isaac and getting yelled at for not holding her foot…

  1. Kail: you didn’t write those books yourself, you didn’t make your haircareshit yourself and your degree must be earned for shwowing up in class. You an Chris have the same but you both can only write slang on twitter. Try an application form and keep your legs closed to your abuser. Zero respect.

  2. It surprises me that McKenzie wants to move away from her family. I thought they were really close and she really relies on them to help her out with her kids. I could be wrong though. I get needing a fresh start—especially after the trauma of the past year (mom dying, Josh maybe cheating on her) but she doesn’t seem stable enough to me to be a full-time single parent. It’s cliche but it really does take a village to raise a child.

    I sincerely wish her the best and I don’t mean to mom shame her. I just hope she isn’t setting herself up for failure by making an ill-conceived move away from her support system.

    1. Especially not in that area… It’s loaded with drugs. If not her,her kids are in big trouble in just a matter of years. That area of Florida has nothing for a young person, I know, I was a cop there for 11 years. She’s going to be mighty unhappy once going to the pretty beach in siesta key wears off. It is cheap AF to live in Florida though, you can get a lot of house for nothing.

  3. Farrah and Jenelle also thought they made the show not that the show made them. Boy werw they surprised when all their “businesses” collapsed without that MTV fame.

  4. MTV didn’t help any of them. Kail would have the same things. Ok if you believe that. Let’s not forget she would look even more like her father. No lip injections, no dr Miami, and no Botox. 😂🤨

  5. I wonder how her boys feel every time she births another boy and talks about having a girl ~signed, a mother of boys and loving it.

  6. The thing people don’t get with IVF is that it’s not a 100% guarantee. The rate of live births with IVF is 21-40%. Not only that you could retrieve 20 eggs and get 1 or 2 (or 0) healthy embryos from them. Those embryos could be male.

    IVF is not that easy.

    1. Yep. I just did IVF and we got really lucky that it worked, but people have NO idea what they are getting into when it comes to IVF. It’s hard, it’s grueling, and there’s always a possibility it could be for nothing. It annoys me when people casually throw it around like it’s not a big deal.

  7. I think MTV should give the Beaver family it’s own short “spin off” series and see how it does. I suspect it would bring in the ratings. I like Mama Beaver the best. And I really don’t think Rachael Beaver is as dumb as people think.

  8. Yeah Kail you went to school, opened yourown business .. BUT don’t forget if it wasn’t for MTV’s money you couldn’t have been able to do half that shit! Don’t pat yourself on the back too hard. Remember where you came from before all this took place!

  9. If it weren’t for MTV money Karl would still be living in government housing working some dead end job and eating beefaroni out of the can on her duct taped beanbag furniture, frying to get the motivation to join curves.

  10. I know a fan asked her but Kail, focus on the kid who just shot out of your groin and stop talking about having more! You said multiple times you won’t stop at four, we know but we don’t need a reminder every few seconds and you talking about how you crave on having a girl. I’m over it.

    1. How about Kail and Tyler / Caitlyn swap a kid, then Tyler gets his boy and Kail gets her girl. Not like Chris will give a crap.

      There, problem solved all around and neither will feel the need to continue to breed.

  11. Others with MTV fame didn’t go to college or start profitable businesses so yeah, MTV fame helps her but it’s her drive that make those businesses work. And of course her baby daddies need to provide too, those kids weren’t conceived by herself.
    I don’t particularly like her but I see a lot of envy in this comment section

  12. I see McKees trying to come up with a new way to milk this “divorce” for everything its got….move her and the kids away as a “single” mother going through a “divorce”, while still trying to co-parent…but yet still not actually filing for divorce.

    1. Then finding out later Josh actually moved there with her or she ends up “changing her mind” because she doesn’t want to take the kids away from their father. Is she even allowed to just up and move away with the kids that easily? Doesn’t Josh have to approve?? Another reason this probably just another way for her to get attention. Then next week she’ll be telling all everyone to mind their own business.

  13. KAIL IS DUMB! no but had it not BEEN FOR MTV paying you to push BABIES out of you cat on camera, you would’ve NEVER graduated college, you COULDVE NEVER started your hair care or wrote your books because no one would buy them without the MTV name recognition attached to it! That’s why all the “mtv stars” have MTV in all their online handles! This bitch thinks she’s so smart 😂

  14. Kail, MTV did do those things for you. No-one would’ve read one of those four books if you ‘wrote’ it as Kail Lowry as opposed to MTV’s TM2 – Kail Lowry.
    Prove me wrong.

    1. Agreed! And when the show ends (hopefully soon) her platform will disappear and real ‘reality’ will hit her.I hope that she is able to cope. She is very out of touch with the opportunities this show has presented to her. I do respect that her kids and house are always clean and well maintained, which is alot more than I can say for the majority of the rest of the Teen Moms.

      1. Lmfao they ALL are very out of touch with the opportunities this show has presented to them. See Farrah and Jenelle, who’s businesses continue to fail. Jenelle, who’s surely almost broke by now, still thinks she has a thriving makeup business that no one actually wants or buys

  15. Kail being able to provide for 5 kids by herself years after MTV is gone?
    Not likely for someone that complains about being broke AF often, has money stuck in stone (good luck selling that with profit in the upcoming years of depression when you need that money), has to beg for discount on paint etc.
    The moment her fame is over and her income drops, Jo and Javi will provide per court order.
