Mackenzie McKee is putting an end to her ongoing feud with her former Teen Mom 3 co-star Briana DeJesus.
As DeJesus prepares for the Season 8 premiere of Teen Mom 2, she and McKee are at odds, but according to a new statement, McKee doesn’t intend on taking their online feud any further.
“I refuse to speak about her anymore,” Mackenzie McKee told OK! Magazine on July 6. “It’s more of a reason for her to blast lies about me. Best of luck to her.”
Mackenzie McKee’s statement comes just days after DeJesus called her out for liking a tweet about starting a fan protest to have her booted from Teen Mom 2. As fans will recall, DeJesus was added to the Teen Mom 2 cast for Season 8 after previously starring alongside McKee on Teen Mom 3.
While Mackenzie McKee seemed to have a real problem with Briana DeJesus earlier this week, she now claims that she’s ready to put their feud behind her. However, before her interview with OK! Magazine, McKee shared a cryptic tweet with her fans in which she called someone out for not being a nice person.
Earlier in the year, after news of DeJesus’ addition to Teen Mom 2 was revealed, Mackenzie McKee wondered why she wasn’t chosen for the gig.
During an interview with Radar Online at the end of March, Mackenzie McKee slammed Briana DeJesus for being less popular with fans online and for having more than one baby daddy. She also said that she felt she was a better fit for Teen Mom 2 because of her expansive audience and many projects.
According to Mackenzie McKee, she was confused by MTV’s decision to move forward with Briana DeJesus on Teen Mom 2 and suspected they hired her because of her multiple baby daddies. As she explained, the drama between the show’s women and their baby daddies may be what attracts fans.
To see more of Briana DeJesus and her co-stars, including Leah Messer, Chelsea Houska, Jenelle Evans, and Kailyn Lowry, don’t miss the Season 8 premiere of Teen Mom 2 on Monday, July 17 at 9 p.m.
