Not all of the stars from MTV’s 16 and Pregnant made it onto Teen Mom. Though, every now and then, one or two of them will still make headlines for where they are in their post-pregnancy lives. For Jordan Cashmyer, fans have been more concerned than anything since the headlines she’s been making were far from ideal.
After her appearance on 16 and Pregnant, Jordan fell into post-partum depression that eventually led to her using drugs. She’s fallen on some hard times and fans have been concerned for her health and stability, but this update has cleared things up and shown she’s headed back to the right place.
Even though many of the 16 and Pregnant stars were only in the spotlight for a few episodes, many of them still had small followings on social media or through other outlets. For Jordan Cashmyer, it wasn’t exactly for the best reasons.
Years after her appearance on MTV, a fan spotted Jordan on an app that escorts used to advertise their services. A screenshot of her profile on the app started circulating the internet, with Reddit users pointing out that things may be even worse than they seem. User TieDyeRehabHoodie wrote, “She looks so frail and unhealthy. Her socks are so dirty. This poor girl :(“ NotNowJustMeow pointed out, “If you look at he screen shots someone posted; her ad says ‘party friendly’, in the escorting world this means she will do drugs with you.”
It wasn’t long after this update that multiple outlets began to report on Jordan’s relapse into drug use. According to Radar Online, Jordan was charged with possession of marijuana and three counts of possession of drug paraphernelia.
According to the police report, “Defendant Cashmyer stated that she was sleeping and must not have heard her phone ringing. While talking to the Defendant, Officer Muska observed a clear hypodermic syringe under the sink in the bathroom to his right.” Jordan later admitted to the police that she had used narcotics while she was at the hotel, then she handed over the drugs and paraphernelia that she had.
The report continued, “The black bag contained three clear pipes containing a burnt residue of a white powdered substance. The burnt residue in the clear pipes [are] consistent with crack cocaine… The clear pipes are used to inhale narcotics. The hypodermic syringes are used to inject heroin. The spoon is used to burn/prepare heroin.”
Only 15 days later, Jordan had a similar encounter with the police. She was again arrested on two counts of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Similarly to the first case, Jordan’s boyfriend contacted the police when he discovered she was locked inside of her room and was unresponsive.
“[Her boyfriend] advised that Defendant Cashmyer had a past history of using heroin and he was concerned that she may have overdosed inside of the location,” the police report read. “Cashmyer was naked and went into the bathroom to put on clothes. She appeared to be under the influence of narcotics.”
An insider expressed concern to Radar about Jordan’s state in her life, saying, “She is on a destructive path. She’s in our prayers that she pulls through in the state that she’s in.”
A Better Path
There wasn’t much news about Jordan for weeks after, but now it looks like things are finally looking up for her. She took to Twitter to give her fanbase updates following her shocking experience with the law.
“A lot of people are confused on what’s been going on in my life,” Jordan wrote on Twitter. “Not that it is majority of anyone’s business, I just want to clear some things up for the sake of my family and those who were truly concerned.”
She also acknowledged more updates, including one in which her mother took to Facebook to share concern that Jordan was missing. “I was NEVER missing, the people who posted that were people who ONLY did that for their own benefit,” she tweeted. “My father and mother (stepmom so no one is confused) were in contact with me and have been part of my recovery everyday.”
She shared that she’s doing what she can to work on improving. “I am currently working on myself and my recovery, and am actually very happy with my life right now,” she tweeted. “There is one thing missing and that will come over time….my baby girl and a good coparenting relationship with her father.”
Jordan has also reappeared on Snapchat, posting glowing pictures of her with her boyfriend. It looks like things are finally looking up for Jordan.
