Teen Mom 2 star Jade Cline opened up about why her daughter, Kloie Austin, needed dental surgery, as revealed on Season 11 of the reality TV show.
According to screenshots, Cline slammed fans who accused her of waiting too long to take her daughter to the dentist in an Instagram rant on March 25 shared on Reddit on the same day.
“You guys must be really worried about your own lives and your children. Not mine LOL. My child is happy and healthy.” She wrote.
“Kloie’s first dental appointment was scheduled for three years. Then a child has grown with all its teeth.” she continued. “Her doctor and dentist said 3 years old is the perfect age to see her dentist regularly. Our dentist only accepts children from the age of 3 years.”
Cline already had an appointment at the dentist for Kloie
Some fans criticized Cline – even accusing her of “neglect” – because Kloie first went to the dentist because something was wrong. As revealed in “Teen Mom 2,” Kloie said she was afraid to get her tooth fixed.
Cline planned to take Kloie to the dentist before she was injured, but rushed the process when her daughter complained of pain.
“Your first appointment was set months in advance. Before her tooth had any problems. She is a child and she hurt her tooth while eating.” explained Cline. “Sometimes things just happen.”
“We went to a children’s dentist out of town who would treat her as soon as possible as she had a problem.” Cline continued. “She was 3 years old at the time. Not 4. She is 4 now. She sees her GP and dentist regularly. You can say whatever you want about me, but one thing I will not tolerate is PPL belittling me as a mother.”
Cline was “overwhelmed” when Kloie needed surgery
When Kloie needed her tooth fixed, Cline was the only one able to take care of her daughter.
Cline’s partner and Kloie’s father, Sean Austin, was in a rehab facility in Texas for substance abuse, and Cline’s mother, Christy Smith, woke up “puking” on the day of the appointment.
Cline, 24, felt left with the “weight of the world” on her shoulders.
“I’m disappointed that my mom called and said, you know, she won’t be here today, and honestly I’m blown away that Kloie is going under the anesthetic,” Cline said in a confessional on the episode of Teen Mom 2 “ from March 22nd.
“I’m super paranoid,” she added. “My anxiety is through the roof and going through this experience alone drains me.”
“As a mother, the worst thing is that the world is watching your child be in pain,” Cline said in another confessional.
Cline and Austin dated off and on while he was battling his addiction.
Rumors swirled that Cline could be pregnant with her second child after she posted a TikTok video showing her reacting to a two-line test. However, some fans noted that Cline may have spoken of a COVID-19 test.
