TEEN Mom Kailyn Lowry flaunted her major weight loss after her costar and nemesis Briana DeJesus allegedly body shamed her by gifting her a treadmill.
The feud between the Teen Mom 2 stars has continued to heat up ahead of their March 29th court showdown.
Kailyn proved that she was unfazed by Briana's alleged dig by showcasing her slim figure in a new video.
The mom of four recorded herself in front of her bathroom mirror donning a body-hugging gray long-sleeved top and black leggings.
She sported a fresh face with no makeup and her shorter blonde hair parted in the middle for the clip.
The TV star geared the attention towards her shirt, asking her followers their opinions about the new purchase.
She added the caption: "I hate wearing color but I took the leap. How are we feeling about this top from Athleta?"
Kailyn's noticeably slimmer figure was captured in the post as she played with the shirt's fit around her waste.
The 29-year-old as been vocal about her insecurities surrounding her weight, previously admitting that she has struggled to drop the pounds following her four pregnancies and PCOS diagnosis.
The TV personality opened up to her co-host, Lindsie Chrisley, on their podcast Coffee Convos Podcast about her weight on a previous episode.

She said: "I got emotional about the weight gain aspect of it… I'm still in that overwhelmed state of mind. I can't get a grip on changing my diet because I don't have an everyday routine…
"I am struggling. I'd be lying if I said I got the diagnosis, and I started right away exactly what I needed to do because I do know what I need to do. It's not an issue of knowing what I need to do…"
She went on to explain what she doesn't need is "unsolicited advice," even if people are just trying to be supportive and helpful.
Months later, Kailyn received a treadmill as a gift from her Teen Mom 2 co-star Briana, seemingly taking a dig at the young mom as the pair have been in a nasty legal battle.
It all started when Kailyn sued Briana, 27, for defamation in June after claiming her co-star “physically beat Christopher Lopez, the father of two of Lowry's sons, and broke into and entered the home of Mr Lopez's mother.”
Briana’s lawyer Marc Randazza requested their upcoming court hearing be postponed from January 14, 2022, to January 19, 2022, because of a scheduling conflict on his end.
Marc complained Kailyn and her attorney Nicole Haff declined to consent to the continuance because Briana sent her enemy a treadmill in an alleged "body shaming” dig.
The Sun can exclusively reveal a Florida judge sided with Marc and Briana, and canceled the hearing for January 14.
The parties will meet to agree on a new date.
The hearing is to rule on Briana’s anti-slapp motion, which protects a person’s freedom of speech, that was filed in August to have the case dismissed.
As The Sun previously reported, Briana’s lawyer provided their email exchange discussing the request to postpone the hearing in court papers.
Nicole’s alleged email to Marc sent on December 15 read: “We are a fairly laid back office and usually, we grant these… This, however, is an unusual case, and your client can ask the court for an adjournment. Ms. Lowry does not consent.”
Nicole explained how Kailyn’s ex and third baby daddy Chris' declaration, where he admitted to spending time with Briana in Miami, was executed on November 2.
But Marc didn’t file it until the night before Thanksgiving to “presumably upset” Kailyn before the holiday.
She then wrote that Briana informed Kail via social media that she would be sending her a “surprise.”
The email continued: “The surprise was a treadmill. When read with the message, a reasonable reader would view it as your client calling my client overweight.
“If your client wants favors from my client, she should stop antagonizing her and perhaps issue an apology for the very statements she made which is the focus of this lawsuit.”
Marc responded that he “in no way intended to upset” Kailyn over the holiday and asked her lawyer to “extend a personal apology” if she was upset.
He then wrote in the email: “The treadmill, well I had nothing to do with that. That seems like an awfully expensive thing to send to someone as an insult. If Ms. Lowry doesn’t want it, I could stand to lose a few pounds myself.”
In the continuance filing, Marc ripped Kailyn and her lawyer for refusing to approve his continuance.
The filing read of Chris’ statement: “Plaintiff’s counsel then makes the wild leap that the fact that it got filed on November 24 was an attempt to upset the Plaintiff. This simply makes no sense. There is nothing in the affidavit that a reasonable person would consider to be ‘upsetting.’
“The timing was the unfortunate result of incompetence, but hardly a fiendish plot to upset Ms. Lowry. It is not a reason to deny a reasonable request for a continuance because a party claims to have been upset by the filing of an affidavit.
“This is the Plaintiff acting with spite, and the attorneys not insisting on being a buffer between client spite and professional conduct.”
He then brought up the treadmill and Kailyn’s lawyer claimed Briana is implying her client is “overweight.”
Marc continued in the filing: “Seriously? This degree of pettiness and schoolyard conduct should find its way into a CLE about how and why the modern practice of law is so uncivil.
“This should have been embarrassing to commit to writing. The reason the Plaintiff’s counsel will not agree to a reasonable continuance is because one party believes that a gift from the other was part of a spat over their respective waistlines.
“Spitefulness is not a reason to deny a reasonable request for a professional courtesy.”
In December, Kailyn posted about receiving the treadmill.
She wrote on Instagram: “Update on the dog room: @BrianaSoto thank you so much for the treadmill. My dogs will love it & I’m lazy so now I don’t have to walk them myself.”
