Things are looking bad!
On some level, it seems that Jenelle Evans has everything in her life pulled together. Her wedding date is swiftly approaching, she’s the mother of three healthy children, and she’s even recently regained more custody of her first son, Jace. However, recent reports have suggested that things in Jenelle’s life might not be as crystal clear as they seem.
Reports have recently surfaced that Jenelle may have put her daughter, Ensley, at risk before she was even born. Jenelle’s ex Nathan’s mother, Doris Davidson, has taken her accusations to court, claiming that Jenelle was using drugs during her pregnancy. Now, amidst these serious accusations, Jenelle has finally spoken out with her side of the story.
Continued Drug Use?
According to Radar Online Doris Davidson, Nathan’s mother, took to court to plead a judge to grant her custody of Kaiser. She claimed that Jenelle “has an extensive history of drug use,” that returned while she was pregnant with Ensley. She wrote, “Upon the birth of Ensley, the newborn tested positive for marijuana.”
She went on to claim that “DSS became involved due to Ensley testing positive for marijuana and opened an investigation. Upon information and belief, both Plaintiff and David had positive drug screens for marijuana.”
According to Radar, the papers also added, “The Plaintiff and Defendant [Nathan Griffith] are at this time not fit and proper persons to provide for the care custody and control of the minor child.”
Nathan’s mother Doris begged the courts to drug test Jenelle. She wrote, “The proposed Intervenor has a reasonable belief that plaintiff regularly abuses illegal substances based on the following: Plaintiff has an extensive history of drug use and has been to treatment. Plaintiff has admitted to using marijuana. Upon information and belief, Plaintiff failed a drug test given by New Hanover county DDS in early 2017. The aforementioned circumstances warrant the consideration for a hair follicle drug test of the plaintiff.”
She then claimed that she herself would be a proper caretaker of Kaiser. She wrote, “The proposed Intervenor is fit and proper persons to have the care, custody and control of the minor child and is willing and able to provide for the child’s physical, mental, emotional and other needs. The proposed Intervenors are worried about the safety of the minor child while in the care of the Plaintiff.”
She also wrote of her concern for Kaiser’s health, saying, “The minor child has been in a constant state of congestion for the past several months but never seem to get better every time he visited. On March 2, 2017 the proposed Intervenor took the minor child to Grand Strand Pediatrics where they prescribed a nebulizer. March 19, 2017 he was sick again with a runny nose and congestion. Upon information and belief plaintiff does not use the nebulizer on minor child.” Nathan’s mother also claimed that Babara “has recently expressed that she is also extremely concerned regarding the minor child.”
Needless to say, these are serious accusations that could result in intense legal ramifications for Jenelle. So it should go without saying that Jenelle hasn’t let these rumors run without putting in her own two cents. And according to Jenelle, one of the biggest players in the case is her own mother, Barbara.
In a recent interview with E! News, Jenelle said, “I can tell you that they are allegations, mostly driven by my mom. Our lawyers are working out a new agreement.”
She went on to say that she’s already addressing the situation legally. “Our lawyers are talking today,” she told E!. “Doris made accusations but I can tell you that Barbara has a lot to do with them… Doris threw her own son under the bus by admitting that he has pending felonies and possibly on drugs. Her emergency filing was against me and Nathan both.”
According to Doris, Jenelle has also been combatting her accusations personally. She claims that Jenelle has been sending her “nasty text messages… with lies and accusations.” She also claims that Jenelle’s explosive personality was coming out, saying, “On August 13 after the nasty drop off, Plaintiff told the proposed Intervenor that she needed mental health counseling and was an angry person. Plaintiff kept texting and once again the proposed Intervenor had to ask her to stop.”
