Jenelle Evans Admits She Never Told Estranged Husband Courtland Rogers About Her Abortion — Exclusive
We've been in shock ever since MTV dropped the epic trailer for Teen Mom 2Season 5. The preview features Jenelle Evans making a bombshell reveal — not only is she pregnant, but she's planning to have an abortion! We've since learned that Jenelle was carrying estranged husband Courtland Rogers's baby at the time the footage was shot, and that she terminated the pregnancy while Courtland was in jail on felony heroin possession charges.
Wetpaint Entertainment recently caught up with Jenelle in New York City to get the behind-the-scenes scoop — since it appears that her entire relationship with Courtland was left on MTV's cutting room floor — and she revealed that she never told her ex about the abortion.
"I had someone tell him while he was in jail that I was pregnant, so he knew," Jenelle explained. "But he didn't know I had an abortion. But he should have figured because I wasn't pregnant forever, so..."
"WTF !!!!!!" Courty tweeted (and then deleted). "I had to find that s— out from a freaking Teen Mom 2 commercial???"
While some fans believe Jenelle had a moral obligation to tell the father of her baby, she's standing by her decision not to.
"I think he just wants a sob story. He just wants people feeling bad for him," she said. "Like, 'Oh, poor you! Jenelle didn't have your baby!' He doesn't even take care of his own daughter."
Nowadays, Jenelle is pregnant again with new boyfriend Nathan Griffith's baby, and this time she plans to keep it. And she also plans to keep her distance from Courtland, even though she's still technically married to him. We know, things are getting way too complicated.
