Jenelle Evans' divorce from Courtland Rogers has been a long time coming. That toxic relationship went down in flames after five short months of marriage when they were both arrested for heroin possession in April 2013. The Teen Mom 2 star finally filed for divorce last week, due to a North Carolina law which requires a full year of separation before either party can file.
It's a good thing too, because Jenelle is very pregnant with boyfriend Nathan Griffith's baby Kaiser, who is due to make an appearance in June. But thanks to another behind-the-times state law, it's possible that Courtland, and not Nathan, will be listed as the baby daddy on the birth certificate!
Because Courtland is Courtland (read -- kinda douchey), he threatened on Twitter to muck up the divorce by refusing to sign the papers.
Damn so my divorce lawyer is in the Bahamas until July 11th... She said to sign nothing until she gets back ... Soooo I guess that means...— Courtland Rogers (@est4life910) May 11, 2014
Ugh. Means what, exactly, Court?
If they are still legally married by the time Kaiser decides to vacate Jenelle's midsection, it's possible that Courtland will be named the father on his birth certificate until they can get a DNA test. Does this guy just love messing with Jenelle's head or what? I have some advice about getting a life, but we all know how likely he would be to take it.
Thankfully, Jenelle's attorney Dustin Sullivan is on top of it. He says that if Courtland doesn't respond within 30 days, "the court will most likely grant our request for Ms. Evans to be divorced from Mr. Rogers."
Hopefully this won't be an issues and Jenelle can finally close the Courtland Rogers chapter of her life for good. That is one relationship that definitely needs to be donzo.
Do you think Courtland will try to delay the divorce?
