Teen Mom has been on the air for a decade, which means that fans have spent a decade getting to know the cast members’ behaviors, patterns, and habits. This means that it can be pretty easy for long-time viewers to predict what they should expect from the stars of the show.
So when Jenelle Evans revealed that she was divorcing David Eason, fans weren’t completely shocked. After all, this was far from the first time that she had broken up with one of her “soulmates.”
And it also means that fans aren’t surprised that she seems to have someone new already!
In the ten years that Jenelle Evans has been on Teen Mom, she’s spent most of the time in long term relationships.
Even though Jenelle Evans has had numerous relationships, the one that she had with her first baby daddy, Andrew, was not particularly intense. By the time Jace was born, Andrew was almost entirely out of the picture, and his recent behavior has made it clear that he’s not making the effort to be in Jenelle’s or Jace’s life.
After Andrew, Jenelle soon moved on to the ever-iconic Kieffer Delp. She and Kieffer fell head over heels in love, and even though their relationship soon grew dark, some fans think that Kieffer was Jenelle’s one true love.
A lot of dark events took place in Jenelle’s life during this time, namely her addiction to opiates.
In her memoir, Read Between The Lines: Diary of a Teenage Mom, Jenelle recalled using a lot of drugs during her relationship with Kieffer.
“I did a lot of heroin and weed,” she wrote in the memoir. “That was all I did. Just smoked and shot up and laid around chillin.”
Only around a week into this drug-heavy lifestyle, Jenelle woke up on the bathroom floor only to discover she had overdosed on heroin.
“I had no idea how long I was out or what I did during the time,” she wrote. “It was scary, not knowing. I asked Kieffer why I was lying on the f*cking floor. Kieffer said I passed out.”
Jenelle demanded why Kieffer didn’t take her to the hospital if he knew that she had passed out while on heroin. But all Kieffer had to say was “Sometimes that happens.”
“He meant that it was just a thing that happens on heroin,” Jenelle wrote in her memoir. “Sometimes you just blackout. Sometimes you lie around on the bathroom floor while your boyfriend enjoys his high… Sometimes you go down and you don’t get back up.”
After Jenelle and Kieffer broke up, Jenelle dated Courtland Rogers and Gary Head, both of which were rocky and dark relationships that didn’t last particularly long. In fact, Jenelle married and divorced Courtland in the short stretch of time between Teen Mom 2 filming seasons, so he never appeared on the show!
