Violence erupts (again) on 'Teen Mom 2'
"Teen Mom" has a history of violence, and Kailyn Lowry is no stranger to domestic abuse. Her scuffle with baby daddy Jo Rivera was the subject of several episodes this season on "Teen Mom 2," and this week she lashes out at her boyfriend, Javi.
Although Kailyn's camp has blamed MTV for creatively editing the footage, a preview for the episode clearly shows the teen mom shoving Javi during an argument.
"I just want to f------ punch you," she screams, pushing him through their bedroom door. "God, I f------ hate you!"
The argument starts with Kailyn calmly instructing Javi to take their dogs outside: "I have friends coming over and I just cleaned," she explains.
But Javi points out that there's a hole in their fence, and refuses to send their four-legged friends out to their deaths. (Maybe that's a little dramatic, but we're still traumatized by the vicious murder of their co-star Chelsea's dog.)
Kailyn loses her temper when her friends arrive and the visiting toddler is mauled by a bear. OK, it's really a dog named Bear and he's actually "kissing" the girl, but she is terrified nonetheless.
That's when Kailyn marches up the stairs to Javi, saying, "I'm gonna f------ knock him out."
Fortunately her attack isn't that vicious, but it's enough for Javi to respond, "This is why we're f------- breaking up."
The couple must have kissed and made up, because they swapped wedding vows last year.
And Kailyn herself issued a public apology after footage of the scene first aired. "Even though Javi and I have moved on from it, I want to say I'm sorry again to him and his family for letting my emotions get the best of me," she told told Starcasm.
"Teen Mom 2" airs at 10 p.m. Mondays on MTV.
