Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry’s tell all memoir titled Pride Over Pity” is set to be released on April 22nd, but the book tells shocking tales of sexual abuse, abortion, and an absentee father that will fans heartbroken for the young mom. Kailyn recalls losing her virginity while in the 8th grade to her first boyfriend. She writes:

“The concrete sidewalk had no summer warmth. Suddenly, my pants and underwear were pulled down…Our movements and his touch were unromantic. When it was over, I ran home, blood trickling down my leg. I was too young to understand that I wasn’t ready— physically or emotionally— for sex. I believed then that I had to have sex to keep up with my friends.”


While in the ninth grade and a freshman in high school, Kailyn claims that her boyfriend at the time, Toby raped her while alone at his house. She recalls the terrifying experience writing:

 “Toby wouldn’t take no for an answer. I didn’t want to sleep with [him], but he persisted. Denying him seemed fruitless. I believed Toby loved me, so I decided I could give him this one thing as long as he wore a condom.”

Unfortunately Toby didn’t wear a condom and Kailyn says she had to take her: “first pregnancy test at fifteen in a Walmart bathroom.” The test was positive and Kailyn wanted to keep her baby but she says that her alcoholic mother, Suzi refused to allow her to continue on with the pregnancy. She says: “She was adamant that I would not be allowed to deliver this baby into the world, even though deep down that was what I wanted.” And on her 16th birthday, Kailyn had an abortion. She recalls the horrifying experience by writing:

“I swear they didn’t just suck out my uterus. It felt as though they had taken every fiber of my being…I felt a mother’s grief.”

After becoming pregnant again at 17-years-old with her then-boyfriend Jordan “Jo” Rivera, Kailyn knew she couldn’t endure another abortion. She decided to keep the couple’s baby saying:

“The experience had been so horrific for me that I couldn’t really bear to consider it as an option again. Once was almost impossible to recover from, twice would mean falling into a deep depression and never bobbing up for air.”

Jo and Kailyn broke up shortly after the birth of the couple’s son Isaac. Despite happily co-parenting with Jo, Kailyn had been dating and after a few platonic hang-outs with a man named Caleb he showed up at her door one night insisting to be let inside. Kailyn recalls her second rape saying:

“He was plastered and insisted he needed to talk to me, so I let him in. But he had no interest in talking. He pulled me into the bedroom and slammed me onto the bed, taking my clothes off roughly…His strength was overpowering. I felt a tear and knew I was bleeding….It felt like I was dead.”

She married her boyfriend Javi Marroquin in 2012 and the two had an intimate ceremony on their one-year-anniversary at an aquarium in Camden, New Jersey surrounded by family and friends. The couple welcomed their son, Lincoln in November 2013. (The family is pictured above.)
