Courtland Rogers’s Mom Confirms His Troubled Past: “He Got Hooked on Oxycontin”
Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans is a married woman! This feisty gal tied the knot with her childhood sweetheart, Courtland Rogers, on December 4, but sadly neither of their families were invited to the courthouse ceremony.
“I can’t say it’s a surprise because they have been talking about it, but I did not know it was going to happen, and I would liked to have been there,” Courtland's mom, Holly Rogers, tells Celebuzz. “Hopefully, they will have another ceremony, because I do not know Jenelle very well and would like to spend more time with her.” Jenelle and Courtland are planning to have a larger wedding in Spring 2013, so Holly has a lot to look forward to! This proud moma is clearly close to her son, though she's the first to admit that Courty's had a rough life.
“He got into trouble after he was involved in a car crash and had to have seven surgeries, and he got hooked on Oxycontin to help deal with the pain,” she says. "He suffered a broken pelvis and crushed foot, and it really set him back in his life. Courtland has had his problems, but he is basically a good person.”
Courtland might be a former jailbird and drug-addict, but everyone deserves a second chance. Let's hope his marriage to Jenelle Evans marks a turning point!
