Jenelle Evans sure can pick ’em.
While fans wonder if Jenelle Evans and David Eason had a secret breakup, one of Jenelle’s exes with a troubled legal history has gotten remarried.
Hint: it’s the ex who referred to Jenelle as a “hurricane.”
And Courtland Rogers’ new wife is pregnant. What advice, we wonder, would Jenelle give Lindsey Frazier?
Jenelle Evans is … well, she’s not many people’s favorite Teen Mom star.
Jenelle’s custody battle with Nathan Griffith goes further than just nasty Twitter squabbles.
Both have accused the other of abusing their son, Kaiser. No matter who’s right, that poor boy deserves better.
In fact, accusations of abuse seem intensely common around Jenelle. Her current husband, David Eason, being only the latest.
It’s difficult to think of adults in Jenelle’s story who haven’t faced accusations of these serious and unforgivable offenses, either against children or partners or both.
One of those alleged abusers is none other than Courtland Rogers. And he has the criminal record to show for it.
In 2013, Courtland was faced with three different arrest warrants. The first states:
“The defendant named above unlawfully and willfully did assault and strike Jenelle Rogers, a female person, by grabbing her by her hair and slamming her against the wall.”
She was pregnant, folks.
“The defendant named above unlawfully and willfully did commit a battery on a pregnant woman named Jenelle Rogers.”
There were other accusations, including a warrant that mentioned that he had allegedly slammed her head against the floor in an effort to take her keys.
Jenelle Evans also wrote about Courtland’s alleged abuse in her memoir, writing:
“Courtland slapped me around a few times, then started punching me in the gut.”
It was then, she says, that she started to miscarry.
“My mother rushed me to the emergency room, where they explained to me that I had suffered a miscarriage due to my recent altercation with Courtland.”
It should come as no surprise to anyone that Courtland has denied having ever hit Jenelle.
And now, Courtland Rogers has married his pregnant girlfriend, Lindsey Frazier.
This isn’t a secret — Lindsey posted the marriage certificate on social media.
And she got some celebratory congratulations in response:
“Congrats! Court needed and finally got a WOMAN with a good head on her shoulders! Wishing you 3 the very best and a loooong happy marriage.”
“Congratulations to you both! It’s great to see Courtland happy and in a good place after all he’s been through.”
Still, some who are familiar with Courtland’s history of domestic violence accusations can’t help but worry about a woman putting herself in Courtland’s hands.
One can certainly understandy why.
Considering that Jenelle Evans says that Courtland beat her so badly that she miscarried, some worry that Lindsey’s putting herself in danger but also her future child.
Others point out that Jenelle has many problems, including a history of drug abuse and her own accusations of abuse, and that her accusations can’t be taken at face value.
In fact, some Teen Mom fans would point out that they wouldn’t trust any ex of Jenelle’s as far as they could throw them. They say that Jenelle has a type, and it’s nothing good.
(One of Jenelle’s exes just got busted for running a meth lab, folks)
All things considered, it’s difficult to congratulate Lindsey on tying the knot. But we do genuinely wish her the best.
