2019 was a crazy year for Teen Mom relationships: we saw some violent and shocking breakups, unexpected divorce announcements, and exciting new relationships forming. It seems like it’ll be hard for 2020 to top that, but by the drama-filled way the year is starting, it might just happen.
After all, 2020 is already starting off with a significant breakup!
Of all of the relationship drama that happened in 2020, Jenelle Evans’ divorce was probably the most unexpected.
She shared the news via Instagram, writing: “I’ve mostly kept off social media the past few days because I’ve been focused on making some big life decisions. I’ve lived my life on camera since I was 17 years old. And alot of it hasn’t been pretty. But it’s been my life.”
She went on:
LIke anyone else I want what’s best for my kids and I want to be happy. With time away from Teen Mom I’ve started to look at my life differently and I know I need to make changes. I’m starting that now. The kids and I have moved away from David.”
Jenelle continued, “Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know thats what is best for me, and for my kids. Today I’ve papers to start that process. I appreciate the support from everybody who has asked how I am. Me and the kids are doing great. We need some time to be together. But you’ll hear from us again soon.”
This news shocked the Teen Mom world, but as we all know, it’s not the only breakup that happened last year. Amber Portwood and her baby daddy Andrew Glennon’s relationship also came to a violent end.
Although it’s clear that Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon had marital tensions brewing between them for some time, it came to a peak when Amber allegedly pulled a machete on Andrew on the night that she was arrested for domestic battery.
The night began with Amber and Andrew trying to go see fireworks with their son James, who is currently the subject of their ongoing custody battle, only to find out that the roads were blocked off.
“Mr. Glennon stated Ms. Portwood made him feel like he ‘dropped the ball’ on plans to see fireworks because the roads were blocked….Mr. Glennon stated Ms. Portwood then bashed his character,” the affidavit from the incident states, as reported by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup.
