'Teen Mom' Jenelle Evans Kept One Heckuva Secret From Her Husband

Courtland Rogers Teen MomTeen Mom 2 fans, did you ever think a day would come when you'd actually feel bad for Courtland Rogers? Me neither! But here it is. The fifth season of the show is set to air tonight on MTV, and the ex-husband of star Jenelle Evans has already delivered some shocking news about the already much debated on-screen abortion.

It was a surprise to many of the fans when the trailer for the show was released in December and showed Jenelle talking about an abortion. We knew she'd lost a baby in a miscarriage, but the reality star had kept the abortion pretty quiet. So quiet, it turns out, that not even her husband knew about it!

Courtland, who just got out of jail on January 11, told RadarOnline that he's "heartbroken" after learning about Jenelle's abortion. And folks, he says he learned about it the way the rest of the world did -- by watching the show's trailer:

It’s not fair that I found out about the pregnancy on a Teen Mom commercial! I didn’t know anything until I got out because I was trying to stay away from the drama. It breaks my heart. It hurts a lot inside. The fact that I had a kid and I didn’t even know I had a kid.


I'm fully supportive of a woman's right to choose, and last week when I sat down with Jenelle to talk about her reasons behind the abortion -- and why she allowed MTV to film it -- she made it pretty clear that she didn't feel Courtland was in a position to be a father to a newborn. Whether he knew about the pregnancy or not, it was pretty clear abortion was the choice Jenelle was going to make.

Still, it's not the type of thing you tend to find out via the national news. At least, you're not supposed to find out this way. SOMEONE could have picked up the phone and told Courtland the decision. If not when it happened, then when it became clear that it would become public knowledge. 

If not Jenelle, maybe the folks at MTV?


The abortion was Jenelle's decision to make -- it's her body after all. And she has the most to lose by going public with it. It's her story to tell (or not tell).

Still, it would seem the compassionate choice for someone to clue Courtland in on what's going down.

I wonder what he'll be saying on Twitter after he actually sees the episode (you know he'll be watching!).

What do you think of Courtland's claims that he didn't know? Do you believe Jenelle and MTV would keep him in the dark?

I think that is the dumbest statement I have ever heard in my life.  It's not just HER body.  It's the body and life of a baby.  It is just as much her (ex) husband's baby is it is hers.  What a selfish bitch!

First of all, yes its HER body, HER choice. Also, he was IN JAIL. They cant just "pick up a phone and call him".
Second of all, she wasnt in any postion to raise another child when shes never raised her first child!
and He rarely sees his daughter so why would he want another one anyway.
Goodness. A judge should have ordered her to be on birth control until she can regain custody of jace but then again its her body so they cant do that,sadly.

When a women lets someone inside her and a baby is created, that baby is not just hers. You shouldn't be allowed to abort a child if the father wants it. Just sign over your rights. You aren't responsible for the child anymore. You cease to have the right to decide when you spread your legs and invite someone in. If you are forced against your will, that's different.

Everyone make mistakes and you cannot force a woman to carry a baby she does not want or force her to be a mother against her will. Women do not lose their rights just because they "spread their legs and let someone in". Its the woman that has to go through carrying the baby not the man which means it will never be equal for the man. Its the womans choice !

SO wait shes now having a kid and all you harpies have been complaining.. yet she had an abortion from her soon to be ex husbad while he was in Jail because she knew it wasnt right to have a child with him.. and thats not ok. 

This makes zero sense, and Women wonder why we are called unstable.

So she says she got the abortion BC he wasn't fit to have a child but weeks later she's posting her 5 week baby bump and marrying this "unfit" father and then publicly is devastated about a miscarriage? She's a lunatic.

darkangel8c: EXACTLY! 
Neither one of them were in any position to care for a baby and were full of all kinds of drugs. It's her business and no one else's.
