ASHLEY Jones has ripped Dr Drew for asking scathing questions about Kailyn Lowry when she wasn't present for the show reunion to defend herself.
The young star and her castmate Leah Messer left the stage mid-filming after discussing the absent Teen Mom.
Now Ashley, 25, has clapped back at reunion host Dr Drew for his comments regarding Kailyn, 30.
The reality star took to her Instagram Stories to slam the physician, writing her opinions with white words on a black screen over a preview clip from the episode.
"Let me make something extremely clear. I would never sit in a room and be silent while my friend is being chopped, for that purpose I removed myself," she began.
"It's not about control, it's about loyalty. Kail was there via Zoom, why wasn't she present for this segment. It's messy. Period," she ranted.

In a second post, she added: "And the next time you ask me why I'm in it or making a comment refer to this video. It's always 2 against 1 and respectfully, Kail got friends too."
MTV shared a teaser clip from the upcoming Teen Mom 2 reunion on Monday, where the girls were pleasant until the topic of Kailyn surfaced.
The reality star was absent from the reunion couch, and her name brought up different reactions from the remaining Moms, leading both Ashley Jones and Leah Messer to storm off the set.
It all started when Dr. Drew addressed the fact that Kailyn, who left the show midseason, was absent from the reunion stage.

"So Kail didn't want to do this reunion in person," Drew noted turning his attention to Leah. "Any idea why that would be?"
As Leah responded that she had no idea, Jade Cline broke out in laughter, answering for her.
"We have an idea," Jade stated flatly. "They don't get along."
Jade was referring to the Delaware star's feud with her castmate Briana DeJesus, who was present just weeks after defeating Kailyn's defamation lawsuit in court.
Briana agreed: "She'll never sit next to me on the couch," she admitted. "Never."
Leah went on to explain that she hasn't been talking to Kailyn much since she left the show.
Drew then tried to dig deeper into an apparent rift between the two that started at the Teen Mom Family Reunion, but didn't get far.
"She (Kailyn) was upset about a self-growth post," Leah explained. "But as far as anything other than that, I have no idea."
As she was finishing her answer, Ashley suddenly stood up and walked off the set.
On her way out, she told Drew: "I'm going to let you all talk about Kail without me, cause I don't wanna be in none of that s**t."
Leah quickly joined her, simply saying on her way out: "I agree."
Briana seemed to smirk as the two ladies left the stage, asking Dr. Drew what he would really like to know.
Then she speculated there may be more to the situation than viewers know: "I think Kail no longer wants to be Leah's friend because Leah's nice to me.
"That's what it comes down to."

Briana then revealed she had a conversation with Leah backstage, moments before the reunion show.
"I said, 'Hey, if you want a friendship with Kail, like, me and you don't have to be friends. I don't even have to look at you. We can keep distance, if you worship that friendship with Kail. And that was it.'"
