The Real Reason Jenelle Evans Is in Rehab Revealed & It's No Joking Matter

Horrifying 21

Jenelle EvansFor a while now, I've been giving Teen Mom Jenelle Evans a hard time. Between her whirlwind wedding to Courtland Rogers, constant Twitter rants, eventual seperation, and then getting back together with her ex Gary Head -- there was just too much material of how off-the-wagon she's gotten. A few weeks ago we heard that Evans was back in rehab to deal with stress, and to be honest I was thankful. The girl just had WAY too much on her plate, and needed a breather. Now, though, Evans' attorney Dustin R. T. Sullivan is revealing the real reason the Teen Mom is in rehab and it's not pretty.

"Jenelle is in a rehabilitation treatment facility in North Carolina to address any addiction issues for drug use," said Sullivan. And just like that, the game changes.

Plain and simple: There's a difference between just being young and reckless, posting ridiculous Twitter rants, and having a bona fide drug problem. This is nothing to joke about anymore. This is serious. Really serious.

As we saw with Amber Portwood, a drug problem is a serious problem. A drug problem can literally get in the way of every single thing in Jenelle's life. It can influence her to hang out with the wrong people, both as friends and romantically, and make more of her not-so-good decisions. Even worse? A drug problem makes handling those bad decisions even more difficult. 

At this point, I just really, really hope that Jenelle stays in rehab for as long as it takes for her to get better. Back on March 2, she tweeted that "this" is for her son Jace. Now, it all makes sense. I pray that she gets the help she needs and comes out of this really wanting to make positive changes in her life. For both her sake, and Jace's.

I read she was in rehab for a heroin addiction. Saying she's doing this for Jace is laughable. She has done NOTHING for Jace. She should never have custody of him EVER.

choff... choff2685

who cares? Seriously. Maybe she should grow up already and be a mom and stop playing games all the time. Its pathetic and so is she.

With her bi-polar problems, cannabis is probably a good medication for her. If it were legalized and she was able to get it without associating with low lifes, she would probably be better off than taking prescription meds.

Amy Adams

LOL I am more shocked anyone would belive she was ever not on drugs. She's a pathic excuse for a mother. God help that boy. Poor little jace. Atleast amber loved leah and would do anything for her.

"Are you surprised to hear that Jenelle is in rehab for drug use?" -- is this an actual question or are you just being scarcastic?

I'll be surprised if Jennelle makes it to her 30th birthday without overdosing, or doing some serious jail time-which would be the best thing for her.


And PS - its "sepAration".

Hell no you can tell that girl is on something

I wonder how much mtv pays these girls for this show-its too much whatever it is-the only girl that showed she had a brain and really loved her child is the one who gave hers up for the mother of a teenage mother i begged her to go the adoption path-she couldn't support her child,the fathr was and is i am raising a 6 year old who has major problems-adhd,abandonment issues and pre bi-polar.these girls need to stop and think-i know all the attention is nice and oh a sweet little baby-but this is someones life yall are messing up-give them to a loving stable family and try to better yourself.i really worry about this generation and the one after them.

Brittany Godell

im not surprised at all she obviously doesnt care about jace at all if she did she would have stopped a long time ago and she would have stopped hanging out with people who are bad influences

Alice Hunter-Parker

She is a train wreck and should never never have custody of Jace.
