For weeks now, fans have been speculating about the nature of the relationship between Kailyn Lowry and Becky Hayter.
A video that showed the longtime friends kissing surfaced on Kailyn's Instagram page earlier this month, but was quickly deleted.
Kailyn replaced it with a post about how she rejects "gay" and "straight" labels, which many fans took as an implicit confirmation that she and Hayter are romantically involved.
Now, however, Radar Online has published a new report that may come as a surprise to Teen Mom 2 obsessives who assumed that Kailyn moved on with a female partner following her separation from husband Javi Marroquin:
“They’re just friends,” a source close Lowry and Hayter tells the website.
“They’ve known each other for a while and always mess around, calling each other ‘bae’ and ‘girlfriend’ because it’s funny.”
The insider added: “They’re just friends. They’ve known each other for a while and always mess around, calling each other ‘bae’ and ‘girlfriend’ because it’s funny.”
Asked if Kailyn is "over" dating men, the source replied, “No, she is not.”
The rumors of romantic involvement seem to have only strengthened Kailyn and Becky's friendship, with the two of them frequently expressing their love for one another on social media.
Tweets like this one aren't uncommon:
And Kailyn and Becky themselves have been mostly mum on the nature of their relationship.
But for now at least, it seems all signs point to the fact that they're just friends.
