If you watch Teen Mom 2, or know anything about Jenelle Evans at all, then you’re surely aware of her long history of substance abuse.
Jenelle claims she’s been clean for several years, and without question, her life has been somewhat less turbulent than in years past.
(Which is honestly more of a commentary on those years past than praise of how she’s doing right now, but that’s neither here nor there.)
Evans’ family and close friends say she’s been behaving more erratically in the last couple of months, and they fear she’s using again.
Why are they convinced of this?
Check out the evidence below and decide for yourself if there’s cause for concern, or if this is just another case of Jenelle being Jenelle.
1. A Troubled Past
Jenelle has dabbled in everything from weed to heroin, but she insists she’s been clean for the past several years.
2. Bad Influences
Jenelle began experimenting before her first pregnancy, but didn’t get fully hooked on hard drugs until her relationship with ex-husband Courtland Rogers, a heroin addict who was recently released from prison.
3. From Experimentation to Addiction
“My first trip was amazing. I won’t glamorize the drug by going into the long details of why people love it so damned much,” Jenelle wrote in her memoir. “Before I knew it, I was shooting up four or five times a day. I was hooked.”
4. Criminal Behavior
Jenelle’s addiction took her down some frightening paths, leading to dozens of arrests. Evans has been taken into custody for everything from possession to assault over the years.
5. A False Happy Ending?
These days, Jenelle is married to David Eason, and she recently welcomed her third child. She says her wild days are behind her, but TM2 fans believe she’s hiding behind a carefully-constructed facade.
6. Frightening Signs
Jenelle has reportedly been behaving erratically in recent months (even by her standards) and family and friends say they have ample reason to believe she’s back on hard drugs…
