TooFab reports that Jo has paid Kailyn $475 a month in child support since their son was a baby, but he’s now requesting that he should be the one getting paid.

Kailyn Lowry says her ex is looking for a “payday.”

He said in the episode that Kailyn makes more money than him and gets a good amount of cash from her social media following. Jo explained to his wife, Vee:

“I shouldn’t be, you’re making hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars every year and then you tell me all the money that you make that you don’t tell other people about, like five to 10 grand coming in every month from Instagram just on advertisements.”

Jo is requesting $1,000 a month in payments, Kailyn’s lawyer informed her over text message. Kailyn read the text aloud to a friend, it said:

“I should let you know Mr. Rivera thinks you’re a payday for him now that you have shared placement and thinks that he can get over $1,000 a month from you.”

Kailyn was infuriated by the request and said that she’s not as rich as he’s implying. She thinks he’s just trying to get the cash for himself — not their son.

She said:

“Just because I make more and you can get it, doesn’t mean that that makes it right. I want to see what the expenses truly are. Maybe he thinks that I’m making millions, but I sure as f**k wouldn’t be living in the house I live in, driving a Suburban if I made millions!

It’s hard to not look at Isaac and be like, ‘I hate your dad, don’t talk about him.’ But I cant, I can’t do that.”

Kailyn said she previously offered to cancel the child support payments from him, but “didn’t get around to it.”

She said that Jo is just looking for a “payday.” The dad said he just wants his son to have the same standard of living with him as he does with Kailyn.
