Jenelle Evans is constantly making headlines. It used to be because of her poor choices, but recently it has been because she has been battling her ex-boyfriend Nathan Griffith over their young son, Kaiser.
Recently, the courts decided that she would remain the primary custodian over her son, but Griffith was awarded visitation every other weekend. Evans was also granted child support, though the amount was unsatisfactory for her ex. He tried to get the amount reduced with no luck. Griffith was ordered to pay Evans $300 a month with an extra $50 added to get caught up on back pay from when she initially filed her paperwork.
Last night, Jenelle Evans and Nathan Griffith both sat on the couch during the Teen Mom 2 reunion special, and many things were revealed. According to Radar Online, Jenelle Evans had to deal with CPS because of Nathan Griffith. He reportedly made some accusations that involve Evans and her new boyfriend, David Eason, using heroin. In fact, he said it was because she lives in the same town where she used to buy the drugs.
While it appears these accusations have no substance behind them, the fact that they were aired on television has people talking across social media. Evans has caught a lot of negativity because of her relationship with Griffith, and it just keeps going even though they have been apart for nearly a year.
It wouldn’t have been a true Teen Mom 2 reunion special without Jenelle Evans’ mom, Barbara Evans, appearing on the stage. Last fall, there were rumors that Evans was sleeping with an ex-boyfriend once again. Kieffer Delp was bad news for Evans, but she did admit to sleeping with him after the split with Griffith last fall. At that point, Griffith had returned to the house and attacked Delp while he was in bed with Evans.
Barbara Evans described the incident, including the fact that she believed Griffith could have seriously hurt Delp. Rumors swirled that Evans was going to get back together with her ex, though that did not happen.
Many fans of Teen Mom 2 have judged Jenelle Evans for things she has done. When she was facing a mystery medical illness, there was a lot of talk about her trying to fake things for attention. The issue has since been resolved, but it was another thing brought up by Nathan Griffith to try and make her look bad. Evans has done a lot of things during her time on reality television, but in the last several months, she has attempted to make amends and be a better person in order to raise her sons.
The irony of Jenelle Evans being harassed by Nathan Griffith is that he has done some things he shouldn’t be proud of either. Drinking is bad news for Griffith, and he proved it once again this past weekend. Evans hasn’t found herself in trouble for nearly a year now, but that ended when Griffith was arrested Saturday night for public intoxication and obscene language. If Evans chooses to return to court, she could possibly get his visitation limited or supervised.
Season 8 of Teen Mom 2 has been confirmed, and Jenelle Evans has already started filming. There has been some chatter that she wanted to go off on her own and try her hand at a new reality show. With the paycheck being as big as it is, Evans didn’t have much of a choice but to go forward. Nathan Griffith is likely filming as well, especially since he enjoys the pay. Jenelle Evans has been dragged through the mud by Griffith, but she is the one who has come further than many expected.
