They're reaching out!
Jenelle Evans’ history of drug use is no secret to the Teen Mom community, and there’s good reason: it was publicly aired during early seasons of the show. If that weren’t enough, Jenelle also opened up about her experiences with marijuana and heroin in her memoir, spilling the truth about her addictions. Over the years, fans have followed her on the difficult road to recovery, watching Jenelle fall into addiction and pull herself out of it time and time again.
However, recovery is a long and difficult road that often involves relapsing. Even though Jenelle is now a happily married mother to three beautiful children (and step-mom to two more), it seems that her past may be coming back to haunt her.
Jenelle isn’t close with any of her family, and even admitted that none of her family members were present at her wedding to David Eason. Now, though, her estranged family is speaking out with concerns that Jenelle may be falling back into addiction.
For many people breaking out of drug addiction, relapse is a very real part of recovery. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the recovery has been a failure, but it can be incredibly difficult to push through a relapse. In fact, Jenelle’s co-star Tyler Baltierra is experiencing drug relapse firsthand as his father, Butch, struggles.
It’s no surprise that not everyone is keen to admit that they’ve relapsed, which would explain why Jenelle wouldn’t come forward if this is true. Howeve, her estranged family recently spoke with Radar Online about their concerns when it comes to her addiction.
“We’re all very concerned. Very concerned for Jenelle,” one family member said. They added, “We all think that there is still weed involved. We know that for a fact. That’s a constant in their life.”
Jenelle openly admitted to using drugs during her late teens and early twenties. “I did a lot of heroin and weed,” she wrote in her memoir, Read Between the Lines: Diary of a Teenage Mom. “That was all I did. Just smoked and shot up and laid around chillin.’”
At one of her most harrowing lows, Jenelle blacked out while after taking heroin, waking up on the bathroom floor. “I had no idea how long I was out or what I did during that time,” she said. “It was scary, not knowing. I asked Kieffer why I was lying on the f*****g floor. Kieffer said I passed out,” she wrote of the incident.
She recalls demanding why he didn’t take her to the hospital, to which Kieffer allegedly replied, “Sometimes that just happens.”
These family members aren’t the only ones accusing Jenelle of using weed. Nathan Griffith’s mother, Doris, recently filed for custody of Kaiser after claiming that Ensley tested positive for marijuana at the time of her birth.
Some fans even think that the proof of Jenelle’s drug use is as easy to find as logging onto Snapchat. Reddit user hankthetank3 posted this picture of Jenelle and David in bed, captioning it “Jenelle: love is one hell of a drug. Can we get a Dr. Drew cellphone flashlight test?” — implying that the size of Jenelle and David’s pupils indicated drug use.
“Zoom in and look at her saucer like pupils. They are HUGE. Of course she’s high. David’s aren’t even as big as hers. She’s been tweakin out on some sh*t for a hot minute now,” user shelovesthem80sbby wrote.
User aebouch quoted one of Barbara’s iconic moments: “HIGH, HIGH, YA BOTH HIGH.”
