These are shocking rumors!
In the Teen Mom fanbase, it’s not hard for some rumors to fly for a while before they’re addressed by the stars. Even though some of these rumors are harmless, every now and then a serious accusation will come into play. Recently, Jenelle Evans has been facing some evidence of actions with not only social, but also legal repercussions.
Radar Online reports that Jenelle may have turned back to her previous days of drug use, and in the worst way. In fact, they allege that Jenelle may have been using drugs during her pregnancy with Ensley.
Jenelle hasn’t addressed the rumors yet, but if they’re true, she could face serious backlash. And whoever started the rumors surely must have known how damaging they could be to Jenelle if they weren’t true.
So who is responsible for these rumors and accusations? Well, that would be none other than Jenelle’s ex Nathan Griffith’s mother.
Drug use can have life-altering effects on anyone, especially when it comes to long-term addiction. However, drug use paired with pregnancy is extremely dangerous, and can have lethal implications for mother and child alike. Needless to say, accusing someone of using drugs while pregnant is a serious accusation and shouldn’t be taken lightly.
So when the mother of Jenelle Evans’s ex, Nathan Griffith, decided to take exactly these accusations to court, she set of a wildfire of new rumors concerning the recent mother of three and bride-to-be. At the heart of the accusations, she begged the courts to grant her custody of Jenelle and Nathan’s son, Kaiser.
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.”
Begging for Custody
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.”
As for the truth about Jenelle’s drug use, it’s much more hazy than Doris claims it to be. Radar has reported that a “source close to [Jenelle]” also claimed that Jenelle tested positive for marijuana on the day that Ensley was born. However, the outlet states that “The DSS had no comment on alleged investigation.”
Jenelle, however, has denied these rumors, and doesn’t seem bothered by them. In fact, in May, David Eason’s own sister also claimed that Jenelle smoked marijuana while she was pregnant. Jenelle told Radar, “We do not speak to her so I don’t know where she got this information. We haven’t spoken to her in months so if I did she wouldn’t have any idea.”
Believe It Or Not
Currently, the fanbase seems divided about whether or not they believe these accusations. Reddit user DictaSupreme writes, “Apparently [The Ashley] confirmed this story is true. Jenelle really wanted this kept off the show so it won’t be featured. The investigation started at the hospital and lasted months and the case was closed. No charges were filed because she flew to CA to get a medical marijuana card. And apparently David was bragging to the cast at the reunion about getting a card as soon as they landed in LA.”
When user Castiel_the_Angel asked, “How does this girl still have custody of any of her kids?” user PolkaDotMe replied, “Idk dude but I bet she’s going to go through another ‘i need to smoke cause I’m anxious’ cycle of failing drug tests. Remember early on when she was taking drug tests for court and couldn’t pass because the stress of all it drove her smoke even more? If she was unable to stop smoking during a pregnancy then I doubt she’ll do it for a drug test. And if she does manage, I can only imagine how cranky she must be.”
