Jenelle Evans to divorce after 6 weeks, files assault charges against husband

Honest question: do you guys know anyone in real life that is as messed up as Jenelle Evans? Before I was introduced to people like her and Tila Tequila, thanks to the wonders of the Internet, I didn’t fully grasp that people like that existed. Maybe I live a sheltered life, maybe my friends and relatives are drug and mental-illness free for the most part and stay out of trouble with the law. Maybe they’re just good at hiding things. I’ve never known someone who fights as much with their significant other, who gets in so much trouble and whose life is in such turmoil.

So Teen Mom 2′s Jenelle Evans got in a big fight with her husband Courtland Rogers (of six weeks) over the weekend after he went out until 3am. She accused him of cheating, he denied it, and things escalated from there. She’s also seven weeks pregnant and had a miscarriage scare, for which she went to the hospital. Her husband wasn’t around for that, he had gone out of town (probably to score drugs or some strange) so she tweeted that she was divorcing him. Then she marched down to the courthouse and filed five assault charges against him. It’s unknown what went down, the guy denies beating her but her face is allegedly bruised.

The assault charges are “four charges of assault on a female and one charge of battery of an unborn child.” So I guess she didn’t have a miscarriage. Jenelle’s lawyer tells E! that his client was “physically assaulted over a period of time.” That sounds to me like these are older abuse allegations and she’s just getting around to filing charges now that Courtland is on her sh*t list. “Older” is of course relative given the amount of time these two have been together.

Again: who lives like this? This is crazy. This girl must not have the slightest ability for self reflection. I’m not saying she shouldn’t divorce this guy, especially if he abused her in any way, but one minute she was declaring how mature and in love she was and now this public drama less than a week later. The thing is, she’s pregnant. She can get a divorce but if she has the baby and this guy takes his parental rights seriously he’s going to be in her life forever. Who am I kidding, he’s not going to give a sh*t about the kid and Jenelle’s mom will end up raising it. Given how unstable she is that would be the best outcome. Actually adoption would be the best outcome, if they can keep her on lockdown so she can’t drink and do drugs while pregnant.

After I wrote all that, I found this story on Radar that points to a video from last December in which Jenelle’s husband, Courtland Rogers, admits to having smoked crack in the past. He says he no longer smokes crack, but claims “Every once in a while I take Percocet because I just like to float, and I use xanny bars (a 2mg dose of Xanax in a bar-shaped pill form). But I’m okay with that! And I smoke kush.” Father of the year. He also brags about women chasing him because of his fame. I don’t want to repeat it all, it’s just drugged out trash talking.

Jenelle has posted messages on Twitter from Courtland’s baby mama claiming that he’s still sleeping with her. Then she had the audacity to tweet this message: “so sad how all this drama is all over the web .” You put it on Twitter and you have 620,000 followers dumbass. These people are stupid and arrogant beyond comprehension.

    Wow, I did not see this coming- said no one ever.

    These people are seriously depressing.

  2. DanaG says:

    How long before her next baby get’s taken off her do you think? Straight away or they will give her a couple of months to screw it up? Can’t see her coping with this baby she is in the exact same position she was with the first and she couldn’t cope then. Her poor mother will once again be stuck raising her daughters child. Unless of course she does miscarry and with her lifestyle that is probably more likely then not.

      I just love how all these geniuses keep procreating. ugh. Bring on more idiots so the world keeps getting stupider.

      At home with a swollen throat!

      This story reminds me of one of my grandma’s friends. This friend is in her mid fifties and is taking care of her seven grandkids. The daughter has the same issues as this girl does…drugs, alcohol…..all she does is pop out kids every few years. The sad thing is you can see, by their race, just how many different fathers there are to her kids.

      All the kids were born within two years of each other, and the grandma took them in because she didn’t want them to go to the state.

      It’s a hard life, especially for the eldest grandson, Tony. He’s 18, and he does a lot for his grandma and siblings.

      So it makes me feel grateful for my life, and for all the kids that have people/family there for them. It’s happened a few times, in my family, that one of us had to raise a kid since the parent wasn’t.

      This whole situation is just sad.

  3. Jules says:

    Great another child that will be taken away from her, and she will keep pushing them out.

  4. Lauren says:

    She really looks like that Aubrey/Audrey (?) girl of P Diddy’s band.

  5. Samigirl says:

    Well, if these two can’t make it, I guess the rest of us don’t stand a chance.

  6. NerdMomma says:

    Seriously, I have known people like this. Several couples at my high school behaved just like this, and that was before social media. The twitter stuff just amplifies it. But everything, including the pregnancies and drugs and cheating drama, totally happened constantly.

  7. Kate says:

    Her son should have been given up for adoption. She’s never going to get him back (and I don’t think she really wants the day to day of raising a child anyway). He could be with a sane family and have responsible parents.

  8. Launicaangelina says:

    I’ve known many people like this – starting with my own younger sister. My sister and her ex would beat on each other all the time, dump their kids off on their parents and were alcoholics and addicts. It’s a shitty way to live and many others deal with the repercussions. My sister is now on CPS books and can’t be alone around her kids.

  9. Dorothy says:

    That’s right, just keep having one baby after another. We don’t mind supporting it, or you. Just you relax, don’t worry about bettering yourself or you life. Being a loser is career enough.

  10. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    She’s nuts and needs to be diagnosed. Also, not too comforting knowing her new baby would go straight to her mother. Shes not a druggie, yeah, but she also doesnt seem like mother of the year either. I think a deep current of crazy runs through this family. Jenelle doesnt seem to understand even remotely what normal is. How did she get that way? Mama.
    Jenelle needs to be sterized and medicated.

    • Blue says:

      I think she said she was diagnosed with being bi polar. She’s clearly self medicating and doesn’t give a shit about anyone but herself.She is forever getting arrested for something. She has no idea who her son’s father, is she doesn’t do anything for him, yet was pissed when her mom wanted custody. She shouldn’t have this baby at all. It’s not fair. Her mom shouldn’t have to raise another child, Jenelle is not capable of raising it, and it’s cruel to put an innocent child through so much grief. I’m sure this kid will be born with drugs in it’s system and it makes me so angry and sad.

  11. Melissa says:

    Honestly, this is how I see it. Both girls, but especially Jenelle, are idiots. If a guy already has a kid, but isn’t taking care of it doesn’t that sound alarm bells in your head?? The guy even looks like a skeeze.

    Also if he’s already burned you before, somehow its a good idea to flop on your back for round two?? I weep for the species.

  12. Skins says:

    Thanks MTV, this is some great stuff. Perhaps these 2 could make some guest starring gigs on Buckwild? I think they would fit right in. Keep the quality programming coming!

  13. Dorothy says:

    It just stuck me, this would be Lohan today if she hasn’t stumbled into the acting thing early in life. Oh wait, it still may be at some point .

  14. Erinn says:

    Isn’t she bi-polar as well, and off her meds? The girl is not stable, because she refuses to be. Now, I get the mental illness thing, while I don’t have it to the same extent; I have anxiety disorders and clinical depression, I only have so much sympathy for the people that refuse to help themselves. I had to make the decision that I wasn’t healthy, and needed help. And you bet I stuck with it because it wasn’t fair to myself, and not fair to the people I loved.

    But Janelle doesn’t do anything to help herself. She stays off her meds, or mixes them with drugs. She puts herself into situations where there is very little chance of a positive outcome, and quite honestly, I think she thrives on the drama. She goes on about how much she hates it, but she can’t stay away from it.

    My fiances sister, while not bipolar, I believe has narcissistic personality disorder. You just can’t deal with her. She’s an awful human being who really really believes that she is so incredibly special that she should get what she wants no matter who she steps on to get it, to the point of delusion. (eg: she went with her unemployed boyfriend, she’s unemployed herself and a student, to look at a 250k dollar house. Couldn’t comprehend why her parents wouldn’t cosign for this house and made their lives hell over it.) She can be violent, she is hurtful. She’s made me cry on multiple occasions because she’s so nasty. And unfortunately, I can’t just cut ties with her because I’m marrying her brother. Sometimes, when you can’t help someone it’s just better for everyone to not deal with them. And there is no way any child of Janelle’s will be able to do that unless they are taken away from her, as well as her mother. It’s not fair to the kids to have Janelle coming in and out of their lives.

  15. judyjudy says:

    I grew up in a small town and knew a lot if people like this. One girl had a baby in high school and when her baby daddy went to jail for meth charges she got pregnant again by his DAD.
    There is a lot of trash in the world. The internet has made it easier to see.

  16. aims says:

    She’s a mess. We all knew something like this was going to happen. She thinks she’s done nothing wrong and will move on to the next loser. She should get an abortion,its not to late. A baby will cramp her lifestyle of sex, drugs and selfish behavior. This baby has a job, the baby is supposed to fill a void that her son was supposed to fill. She doesn’t get that when you become a parent you need to put your baby’s best intrests first. You are supposed to be a provider in everyway. This is why I said I felt sorry for the baby. The baby wwill jot have a mother who will fight and do whatever it takes to make sure he or she will thrive.

  17. JL says:

    Trashy is Trashy and Classy is Classy. A TV show and money will not change that.

    Let’s just start taking bets on who her next “baby daddy” will be. Loser #3 please step forward.

  18. Jamie says:

    Everyone stop commenting. Quit this. Fame is not what this girl needs.

  19. Sam says:

    And you know that she would never, ever voluntarily give the child up for adoption. She only signed over Jace’s custody when her mother basically told her that if she didn’t, they were going to go to court and all Janelle’s conduct could be admitted. She didn’t do it out of concern for her son, she did it to save herself. She wouldn’t give up this child without a fight, which is terrible.

  20. fabgrrl says:

    I know people think I sound like a fascist, but why can’t we just make birth control mandatory? Seriously, at 16, or 15, or whatever, every girl gets an IUD and every boy gets some kind of reversible vasectomy. These could be removed/reversed at ANY time for ANY reason, but a pregnancy would require BOTH parties making that decision.

  21. teehee says:

    AHAHAHA — oh sorry. I mean…. we knew that they both were made of trash. How come THEY dont??

  22. Murphy says:

    She’s not really pregnant dummies!

  23. Lauren says:

    Is he really talking about suicide?

    Courtland Rogers ‏@courtyb11
    ‘Wow I came to Michigan to see my best friends grave because I honestly don’t have much longer on this earth there are things I have to do’

  24. Decloo says:

    Maybe if we stopped paying attention to her antics, they would stop. Her “fame” is all she’s got. She makes the crap happen because it gets her noticed and paid.

  25. Joy says:

    Next week they will be back together and it will all be a big misunderstanding and anybody who says otherwise will be deemed a “hater”. Or I as I like to call us “person with common sense”. I work in mental health and sadly I see worse than this all the time. At least Jenelle and her husband aren’t brother and sister I guess.

  26. bopit says:

    this girl literally makes up 90% of my water cooler talk at work….

  27. Ryan says:

    I do know of quite a few people like this. Definitely not uncommon in Lake Havasu City, AZ :/

  28. wonderwoman21 says:

    He would not be with her if it wasn’t for her money and fame. I bet he wouldn’t date a girl as unattractive as Jenelle is she didn’t have $$ and fame to offer.

  29. Patrice says:

    This is all so disgusting, despicable and sad I don’t even know where or how to begin.

    In response to Celebitchy’s question asking “Who lives this way?”, I’m totally with her but unfortunately, a very large demographic of the country does it seems. All one has to so is turn on the news on any given day to confirm it (which is why I stopped watching a long rime ago). The internet and reality tv certainly haven’t helped; now you have these types becoming (and/or just believing themselves to be) bona fide celebrities and having ridiculous amounts of cash thrown their way. That only encourages this type of behavior and makes things infinitely worse. Shame on MTV. The minute they knew how seriously troubled many of these girls & families were, they should have cancelled all those stupid shows and cut off the cash flow. I’m not blaming the network for anyone’s behavior-we’re all as adults 100% responsible for our OWN actions-but you don’t give a confirmed violent criminal and drug addict $250,000 a year and fame for ratings. You just don’t.

  30. Holden says:

    What??? She has over 620K followers? Why? Because she has a talent for making bad decisions? Enjoy your dirtbag life dirtbag.

  31. JPC says:

    This little hood-rat bitch. How wonderful that she’s so fertile.

  32. KellyinSeattle says:

    That show just keeps the cycle going.

  33. Lucy2 says:

    I will gladly pay for their birth control.

    I know a girl just like this. She’s currently in jail.

  34. Agnes says:

    i feel absolutely terrible for that child. he/she doesn’t deserve parents this awful. no one does.

  35. Andrea says:

    These are the same people who I have worked with in the past who say, since I am 31, I should get myself accidentally pregnant if my bf does not want kids and if he splits, the government will pay for my kids! I don’t want kids and have been on birth control since I was 18 years old. Its doable but somehow a lot of people are stupid in this world and have lots of “accidental pregnancies”. And people wonder why I don’t want kids. One of the reasons is because I wouldn’t want my kids corrupted by all these idiots kids! There is no way to not have them be around them. (There are many other reasons obviously). Jenelle will end up in jail like Amber, in fact, they both could use the same mental health. I blame the US for not having universal healthcare which would hopefully help in mental health cases, which Amber and Jenelle clearly are. They need to be monitored and on meds.

  36. Chrissy says:

    Unfortunately, I do know (or have known) people with almost this much drama and trash going on in their lives.

  37. Lee says:

    And we are surprised….why?????

  38. lettylynton says:

    I watched the video blogs…well, as much as I could take. These people are all so disgusting. And the new chick he’s flaunting in the video blogs…wow. I do love that this guy’s name is ‘Courtland’ because I guess his parents had a premonition on where he would be most of his life…

  39. Mandy says:

    The only person I can think of in this whole situation is her poor son, Jace. That little boy deserves better. I literally want to cry every time there is a scene with him looking at Jennelle while she yells at her mother and walks out the door. I wish I could scoop him up and take him home with me. :(

  40. juju says:

    this chick should not even be on the show 16 and pregnant, she is a wack job !!! she should be in a mental hospital !! iam sure the money she makes from the show is what she’s using to get all these lame ass boyfriends and to do drugs !!take this chick of TV, she is such a bad example of young girls !!

  41. Laurie says:

    Jennelle has shown from the beginning that she is a pot smoking,lying,immature,lowlife, trailer trash,slut who will do anything to get what she wants. When she wants. Her mom should have had her fixed years ago….LOL..I wish they did a show on how many grandparents are raising their grandchildren and have to continue raising the ones having the children….
