Kail Lowry surprised her podcast listeners (and likely sent the DeJesus crew into an tizzy) on Thursday when she dropped an episode of Coffee Convos featuring Devoin Austin – the baby daddy of her Teen Mom 2 co-star (and known nemesis) Briana DeJesus.
During the podcast episode, Devoin spilled plenty of tea about Briana, her family and how he feels MTV and the DeJesus family have done him dirty over the years, starting with Bri’s 16 and Pregnant episode. Devoin was happy to tell the real reason he is not on his daughter Nova’s birth certificate!
Given Kail and Briana’s rocky past, as well as Devoin’s frequent social media feuds with his baby mama, some considered the move to be a bit calculated on Kail and Devoin’s parts.
“Waiting on Brianna to post a #linkinbio about how pissed she is,” one person wrote in the comment section of Kail’s post about Devoin’s appearance on the show.
However, Kail told Us Weekly the real reason she chose to have Devoin on the podcast.
“I was happy to give Devoin a platform to tell his story,” she told the outlet. “Him and his girlfriend are so sweet. I loved getting to hear his perspective on coparenting and his experience on the show. I wish them nothing but the best and all the success on his wing business.”
Similarly, Devoin said he accepted Kail and co-host Lindsie Chrisley’s invite to do the podcast as a way to promote himself and what he has going on.
“I want to start this off by thanking Kailyn and Lindsie for inviting me on the podcast,” he said in a statement. “They were very welcoming and they listened to what I had to say. It felt great to get some things off my chest. There wasn’t any pressure to bash anyone or anything like that.”
While Devoin wasn’t pressured to bash anyone, he did want to set the record straight on those who have bashed him in the past – namely Briana and her family. While talking to Kail and Lindsie about some of the mistreatment he feels he has received from the DeJesus crew, he used Briana’s “16 & Pregnant” episode as an example.
“Like, when Nova was first born, they said on national television that I went to play basketball,” he said. “Dude, I was downstairs in the hospital.”
“They drew animated me and I jumped out the window like a f**king lunatic, like a young Black guy that just wanna play basketball when his daughter was born. That’s what happened to me,” Devoin said.
Devoin said he was in the room when Nova was born (which actually was shown on “16 & Pregnant”) and afterwards, Briana’s mom Roxanne insisted that he “go change clothes” because he had been at the hospital for so long.
Instead of heading home, Devoin said he went downstairs to the hospital cafeteria for about 30 minutes and when he returned, he was met with an unpleasant surprise after asking if “the lady with the birth certificate” had come into Briana’s room yet.
“ … Roxanne asked me, ‘Why?’ Meaning they already signed it, my name’s not on it,” he said.
Devoin admitted that he “got pissed” at this point and Briana’s family ended up calling security on him. (This was mentioned on ‘”16 & Pregnant,” the real reason he was mad–regarding the birth certificate— was not.)
Briana and her family have yet to speak out on the podcast episode or Devoin’s story about the birth certificate.
