Following his Teen Mom 2 arrest, a cell mate of Nathan Griffith spoke out, claiming the reality star bashed his fiancé, Jenelle Evans, while behind bars. In an interview with Radar Online on March 9, Jason Sasbon recalled his time with Griffith.
According to the site, Sasbon was in a cell with Griffith for several hours at the Surfside Beach, South Carolina, Police Department before being booked at the Horry County jail.
In the interview, Sasbon claimed Griffith said his Teen Mom 2 arrest happened after he and Evans’ relationship exploded over jealousy and possible cheating.
Although Griffith didn’t reveal a name, he reportedly told Sasbon he had been secretly seeing an “old friend” from Virginia.
“He’s been meeting up with her halfway in North Carolina, staying in a hotel. They went out drinking and had drunk sex. It started with a massage and then he hit it up.”
Griffith seemed “madly in love” with the unnamed woman, according to Sasbon.
Apparently, prior to the Teen Mom 2 arrest, Evans “got extremely pissed off” at Griffith, who was said to be talking to the woman on Snap Chat. During the argument that ensued, Griffith reportedly attempted to remove Evans’ engagement ring from her finger, which left the reality star bruised.
“She was fighting to keep it on and he was grabbing her wrist and pulling it off. He paid a lot of money for the ring and he wanted the ring back.”
Despite the argument, and the Teen Mom 2 arrest, Sasbon claimed it was the other woman who Griffith was concerned with.
“He was really freaking out about this girl being upset with him still being with Jenelle. He’s probably in Virginia with her. That’s where he was going when he got out of jail.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Griffith has reportedly been trying to get back with Evans. However, according to Sasbon, he’s only doing so in an effort to clear his name.
“He’s scared if he leaves her, the charges will stick.”
Sasbon went on to claim Griffith said Evans was “the aggressor” and “violent,” and once bit him on the back. In fact, Sasbon said he saw first-hand the scars from Evans’ alleged attack.
After he was released from jail last week, Griffith shared the following tweet, but didn’t reveal who it was for:
Missing and always thinking about you…
