Jenelle opens up
Jenelle Evans took to her website to touch on a topic she rarely speaks about. We all know and love (or love to hate) her mother Barbara, but where is Jenelle’s father?
Jenelle finally opened up, letting us see into her personal life. Yes, we get to see most aspects of her personal life on screen through Teen Mom 2, but there is something about this post that feels much deeper.
Apparently, she was receiving so many questions from fans that she felt the need to reveal her heartbreaking past and talk about where her father is now.
Jenelle’s post began:
“A lot of people ask and wonder about my biological father, where he is, why isn’t he in my life. First things first, growing up. Wow, I keep deleting what I write because I have no idea where to begin and how to put my thoughts into words. I grew up with my older brother, sister, father, and mother up to the age of 5 or 6 of what I can remember. We grew up in Scranton, PA. He always knew how to put a smile on my face while singing old songs to me in the car like Red Hot Chili Peppers and just rock music while driving around town in the car running errands.”
“I would love to hear his voice because he actually was a great singer and use to be in a band with Chevy Chase and had blonde hair down to his butt !!!!! For some reason my siblings and my mother always had a sour attitude towards my father and I had no idea why, later on I found out there was a huge reason behind that. I’ll save that for my book. I was always daddy’s little girl. Always wanted to be around him and just watch him play the keyboard and show me how to put songs together on his computer at my grandmother’s house. This lead to him buying me my first digital camera and guiding me to my ultimate career goal which was film editing.”
“I took videos all the time of my brother and I riding bikes or simply ‘acting’ like we were arguing to get my mother’s reaction in the background, which was all a joke to us. We always had fun with my camera. My mother and father never got along and I don’t remember, but there was always arguing and physical altercations in my household growing up, so they both decided to get a divorce and he moved out. I remember that broke my heart pretty bad, even being so young.”
