What do you get when Teen Mom Jenelle Evans and her husband Courtland Rogers go to court? A whole lot of drama. The reality star went to a hearing in a Brunswick County, North Carolina courtroom today to support her on-again, off-again, on-again husband, who pleaded guilty to one count of assault on a female and one count of battery on an unborn child.
Courtland was sentenced to 24 months probation, and according a source who spoke to E!, he's happy to put the whole thing behind him.
I ... I am so confused. Let me get this straight. Jenelle gets pregnant with Courtland's baby, they get married, he abuses her (and the unborn child), she has a miscarriage, she leaves him in the middle of the night, er, something, and gets back together with an ex, he goes back to his ex, Tiffany, Jenelle presses charges against him alleging abuse, then she tries to retract those allegations, then they get back together, and now he's just pleaded guilty to battery.
And honestly, that's not the half of it. Courtland was also accused of selling stories that defamed Jenelle, and Jenelle had been accused of faking her pregnancy for attention and money.
But listen. The fact that Courtland pleaded guilty to battery against an unborn baby makes me assume, naturally, that Jenelle really was pregnant and really did have a miscarriage. But I'm taking all this with a grain of salt.
Would I put it past these two to take the pregnancy lie so far that Courtland would be forced to admit to abusing an unborn child lest the truth be discovered? No, no I wouldn't.
But if lies designed to win them fame and a bigger paycheck are resulting in excess battery charges, they made need to rethink their strategy.
Are you surprised Courtland pleaded guilty to one count of battery against an unborn child?
