TEEN Mom Kailyn Lowry is apparently at war with her friend Leah Messer after slamming her for allegedly joining a "cult."
Kailyn called Leah "weak" and said that she tried to get her friend away from the self-improvement organization with no results, according to Radar Online.
Kailyn apparently talked to Rachel Chitwood, a fan of the show, about the situation over a series of text messages obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.
She told Rachel: "I really don't know what to do."
"I don’t want to lose her as a friend but I also don’t think any of this is ok."
Fans of Teen Mom 2 will know Leah Messer has been promoting a self-improvement organization called Mastery in Transformational Training (M.I.T.T.) on her social media platforms.
She's taken to Instagram stories to talk about the program and recruit others.
She's even reached out to multiple celebrities over Twitter to get them to join the program.
The current situation apparently began when Leah took to Instagram Live to talk to her followers about the program and get them to join.
Rachel then sent Leah a message with her phone number and she allegedly got a call from the Teen Mom star the next day.
Rachel told RadarOnline: "She started telling me about the program and stuff. And we brought up the conversation about how people thought it was a cult."
Rachel also said that their conversation turned tense once the term "cult was brought up."
Leah texted Rachel a link to M.I.T.T.'s website after their conversation and told her: "I want everyone to have a life changing experience and do their part to contribute in the world."
"That starts with taking a stand for your own lives."
Rachel told RadarOnline: "She would tell me there was training and they train you to be the best person you could be, but she wasn’t telling me how."
"She wasn’t going in depth with anything. It was about $600."
She explained she had planned to join the program in 2020 but couldn't afford it.
That's when Leah apparently "got mad and became mean" towards Rachel.
Rachel explained that Kailyn reached out to her after Leah tagged her on an Instagram post about M.I.T.T.
She said: "Kailyn tried warning me and I kind of blew her off about the whole thing. But then I had to apologize when I realized this is serious."
Kailyn told Rachel: "I don't want to see young moms do it and spend their savings on this."
And while Kailyn was trying to dissuade Rachel, Leah apparently didn't give up on trying to recruit her telling Rachel to ignore Kailyn because she was spreading lies.
Apparently Rachel, at one point, asked Kailyn if she should be scared because she had two young sons and Leah had all of her information.
Kailyn told her no but sent her an article published by GQ, which claimed that several people had died the 1980s when participating in a previous iteration of the program known as “Lifespring” and many others had sued Lifespring.
She also told her that her friendship with Leah was strained after she had joined the self-improvement program.
Apparently Kailyn also said: "Unfortunately those programs target weak people who can be manipulated."
Rachel then says she told Kailyn: "I'm legit fearful. And [I don't know] to do. Like [Leah is] using her platform in the worst way."
The Sun Online has reached out to both Kailyn and Rachel for further comments.
Rachel joined M.I.T.T. back in October, RadarOnline reported.
M.I.T.T. is a California-based organization.
Both Leah and Kailyn appeared on the show 16 and Pregnant.
They became best friends after appearing on Teen Mom 2 together.
