KAILYN Lowry's circle of friends is shrinking amid an ugly feud with Teen Mom 2 co-star Leah Messer.
The reality star has made no secret that she keeps her circle tight.
Teen Mom 2 fans were shocked to see that Kailyn, 30, recently unfollowed Leah, 29, on social media.
The pair had been very close for years, even vacationing together in the past, so the move seemed unusual.
Per an insider: "Kail unfollowing Leah comes down to Briana.
"Once Briana and Leah were on the Teen Mom Family Reunion and Leah wasn't mean to Briana, that didn't sit well with Kail."

The source went on: "It should be noted that Leah did walk away when Kail was brought up and made Briana aware she didn't want to discuss Kail as she's friends with her but Leahs was still nice to Briana."
With Leah ousted as her BFF, Kailyn has turned to her other gal pals for support.
She is known to be close with her nanny, Natalie, and her BFF Bone.
The MTV star recently opened up about having a nanny, facing backlash.

Bone, meanwhile, came to her defense amid drama between Kailyn and Briana.
Here's what you need to know about the reality star's gal pals.
Kailyn has been open about the fact that she is selective about who she lets in and doesn't want to "make new friends."
In 2021, she discussed her philosophy on friendship on her Coffee Convos podcast, which she co-hosts with Lindsie Chrisley.
Kailyn confessed that she has "very few friendships" she views as worthy of putting time and effort into.
She explained: "I was struggling for a long time with separating friendships from acquaintances – like, everyone was my friend.
"Whereas now, I don't feel obligated to answer certain text messages, I don't feel obligated to give certain people my new phone number.
"I don't care to even have, like, small talk, maybe that sounds really rude and I don't mean for it to be offensive, I just don't want to make new friends.
"I can make new acquaintances but there's very few friendships that I actually invest my time in."
After narrowing down who's a friend and who's an acquaintance, Kailyn began spending a majority of her time with her podcast co-host Lindsie and pal Kristen Hook.
Kristen isn't just Kailyn's friend, she's her assistant.
The pair have appeared together in photos on social media, and Kristen occasionally posts only about Kailyn.
Kristen has not posted about or with the MTV star since 2018, however.
Kailyn's friendship with Bone has been well-documented on social media and Teen Mom 2.
Bone recently came to her defense amid her feud with Briana.
Following an episode of the MTV reality show which saw the Florida native fly to Pennsylvania to record a podcast with Kailyn's ex Chris Lopez, Briana shared a TikTok video on social media of them dancing together.
She, Chris and her best friend Shirley dancing together.
Then, on her Instagram Story she posted what appeared to be a direct message exchange with Kailyn's pal Bone.
Bone appeared to share a portion of the Florida native's earlier stories containing texts between her and Javi Marroquin, to which Briana replied: "Missed u, where have u been?
"Glad u have her back again, she needs a friend.
"Maybe I'll see u at the reunion next month."
Bone responded: "See you there."
In another Instagram Story slide, Briana wrote: "If you really didn't care you wouldn't post about me so I'm a little flattered.
"Love you bestie!
"Thanks for trying to paint this nasty narrative on me but it's just not gonna work.
"Stop doing things out of malice."
Bone and Kailyn often spend time together, even bringing the kids along as they pal around.
Recently, the podcast host was ripped for "putting her kids in danger" after Bone shared a video of them unpacking her new mansion with gunshots ringing out outside.
Kailyn has gotten close with Vee Rivera, ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Jo Rivera's current wife.
The pair host a podcast together called Baby Mamas No Drama and spend time together regularly.
Their relationship wasn't always as close.
In fact, Kailyn previously had some pretty harsh words for her ex's new love.
Now, however, they pose for photos on social media together, work together, and seem to have a generally positive relationship.
Earlier this month, the pair posed for a pic together on Instagram.
Both appeared to be smiling in the snap.
Kailyn and Lindsie host the Coffee Convos podcast together and have for several years.
They aren't just co-hosts, however, they're also good friends.
The duo spend a significant amount of time together recording and otherwise.
They travel together for the audio show, capturing their work and play relationship for social media.
Kailyn is a single mom to four boys.
While she manages on her own sometimes, she has the help of nanny Natalie.
In addition to working for her, Natalie is also a friend.
The nanny often posts photos of Kailyn's children on Instagram.
Most recently, she shared a snap of Lux and Creed sitting together on a slide.
The boys smiled in the photo, which was captioned: "Sunny days are meant for playing at the park."
Back in 2020, Kailyn was slammed after sharing posts from a birthday celebration for Natalie's son amid the pandemic.
