Chris Lopez has accused Kailyn Lowry of ‘attacking’ and ‘punching’ him during an alleged dispute in Sept. 2020, a new report claims.
Kailyn Lowry, 28, was reportedly arrested after she allegedly got physical with her ex-boyfriend, Chris Lopez, during a dispute about their three-year-old son Lux’s haircut. The Teen Mom 2 star was taken into police custody for “offensive touching” in Delaware on Sept. 26, which Us Weekly reported on Oct. 29. However, the alleged dispute actually took place as the exes were exchanging custody of Lux at Chris’s house on Sept. 4, according to the outlet.
Chris accused Kailyn of striking him “several times with a closed fist” upon learning that he cut Lux’s long hair, per court documents that Us Weekly reviewed. He alleged that Kailyn “started attacking him [and] punching him several times on the head and upper torso because she did not want the child’s hair cut,” and also wrote that he “did not fight back.” Chris also claimed that his sister “attempted to pull Kailyn off” him.
Chris reported the incident to the police the next day, but the cops reportedly didn’t reach back until Sept. 25 (Kailyn was arrested the next day). Meanwhile, Kailyn told police that “the dispute never became physical,” according to the court documents reviewed by Us Weekly.
The mother of four was eventually released “on her own recognizance without bail and ordered to have no contact with Lopez,” the outlet reported, which added that her arraignment is scheduled for Jan. 21, 2021. This arraignment date matches with an online public record of Kailyn’s case. HollywoodLife has reached out to Kailyn’s rep for comment.
While Kailyn has not spoken out about this arrest report, she did make it clear she was not happy about Lux’s surprise haircut in September. She shared before and after photos of the child’s hair, which revealed that Lux’s long curls had been given an uneven chop. “Parenting with a narcissist be like,” Kailyn angrily wrote over the “after” photo.
Kailyn continued to vent about the haircut in an Instagram Live session, saying, “You ever sent your kid to family member’s house, please tell me, and they cut your kids’ hair off behind your back? I’m just at a place where it’s like OK, you could f**k with me all you want … but the second you do something to my child, I’m gonna come out of character because you’re using the child as a manipulation tool.”
Chris later defended his decision to give Lux a hair makeover. “If you wanna be real, I was basically telling the girl keep going. I’ve been wanting to cut my son’s hair. So the fact that I cut off a little bit of his edges, she’s lucky I didn’t f**king scalp his a**….That’s my son,” Chris said in his own Instagram Live session. He added, “So If I decide to make a decision on my son, I can.”
