It is common knowledge by now that when it comes to men, Jenelle Evans cannot pick them. She has gone from one drugged out jail bird to the next and from one abusive man to the next. But her baby daddy Andrew may actually take the cake in this department.
He was largely absent from the first couple seasons of the show. He was a disembodied voice, someone we only heard form once or twice. But then suddenly, this season, he showed up out of nowhere and oh Lord. It was bad.
This season we saw him take the paternity test. But we also saw HIM. Not only is he terrifying to look at (seriously? A mullet?) he is also dangerously manipulative. Judging from his attitude, I'd have to say you can't believe a single word out of his mouth. And he has many words.
On the Dr. Drew special Monday night, he admitted he has not paid a penny toward Jace in child support. Throughout the show he questioned Jace's paternity and whether Jace looks like him (he does), but perhaps most egregiously, he admitted to beating Jenelle while they were dating. To that, Andrew said:
I don't care. That was the past. I already done that. That's over with.
Yeah. Not so fast. I am no fan of Jenelle Evans. She is clearly a very, very messed up girl who should not have one child, let alone be planning for another. But a guy who would beat a woman has a whole lot of explaining to do that has nothing to do with whether he is "ready" to be a father. Would he beat Jace if they were together? These are the things Jenelle (and Barbara) need to wonder.
Andrew's smarm DRIPS off the TV screen. Jenelle Evans may be a piece of work, but that guy? He is worse. What a completely grotesque human being.
The way he passes off his beating is scary, too. There is no apology. No remorse. No sense that what he did was terribly wrong and he ought to undo it in the best way possible.
Plus his entire persona just feels wrong. He is in it for the MTV fame. That's it. Barbara and Jenelle need to keep poor little Jace as far as they can from Andrew. He is one scary dude.
Do you think Jenelle needs to keep Jace from Andrew?
