Teen Mom 2 grad Kailyn Lowry was slammed for her “controlling” behavior toward her new boyfriend, 23-year-old Elijah Scott, after she crashed in part two of the reunion on May 24. It was the last time Lowry appeared on Teen Mom 2, with Lowry joining hosts Dr. Drew Pinsky and Nessa Diab shared that it was time to say goodbye.
Since making their relationship public in May, Lowry has continued to hide Scott’s face on social media. She has posted pictures showing the back of his head, including a picture of Scott eating crabs with her 4-year-old son Lux.
But Lowry allowed viewers to see a different side of Scott at the reunion. They still couldn’t see much of his face as he was wearing a mask. The mother-of-four surprised Pinsky and Diab when she agreed to introduce Scott.
“Why am I nervous? I’m nervous right now,” Diab joked.
Fans heard from Scott for the first time
Scott crouched to wave at the cameras, but didn’t sit on the couch next to Lowry.
“What’s your name? Kail didn’t tell us,” Pinsky said.
Before Scott could reply, Lowry interjected.
“No, no, no, don’t say your name,” she said. “Do not you dare.”
Scott raised his hands and said nothing.
“Nevertheless nice to meet you. You make Kail very happy and we thank you for that,” Pinsky said.
“No problem,” Scott replied.
“Does it make you happy too?” Diab wondered.
He replied: “Yes.”
But Lowry was done with the questioning. When Pinsky asked where they met, she turned and said, “Don’t tell them.”
“And that’s my signal to get back to work,” he said, and left the room.
Corresponding The sun, Lowry and Scott are neighbors. He bought his home in December 2021 and Lowry moved into her new home – which she built from scratch – in January 2022, wrote The Sun, citing public records.
Lowry’s ex-boyfriend Chris Lopez said on his Pressure Talks With Single Dads PTSD podcast that Lowry and Scott lived together.
“Recently I had to pull my kid’s mom aside and say, ‘Yo, there’s no reason my four-year-old should tell me about every guy you sleep with,'” Lopez said, speaking of her 4-year-old son, Lux .
“He just told me about that last guy and now he’s telling me about the new guy,” Lopez continued. “They told me the guy lives with her. I can’t control what you do.”
Fans accused Lowry of being “controlling”.
Viewers on reddit didn’t like that Lowry didn’t allow Scott to answer many of Pinsky’s and Diab’s questions. They accused the Deleware native of controlling Scott, who is seven years younger than them.
“Don’t say your name? Is he Voldemort or something? Don’t tell them how we met!? SMH. He was probably so relieved when she dumped him to go play with the other kids!” one person wrote.
“She’s so controlling for no reason. Her soft starts are enough for people to know who her boyfriend is — heck, Javi will probably tell first. Or poor Jo for not knowing THAT is a secret,” said another.
Some fans joked that Lowry paid Scott to be her partner.
“Don’t say your name! I don’t want people looking for you and finding out anything about you that they can use against me! Or to prove that we don’t have a real relationship! Or to prove that I hired you to say ‘Friend!’ to play,” they wrote.
