Jenelle Evans Confirms CPS Investigations: “I Am Extremely Depressed and Upset”
She’s only a week and a day away from her wedding, but Jenelle Evans is dealing with a whole lot more than just some final planning stresses.
The Teen Mom 2 star is embroiled in a custody battle with Nathan Griffith and his mom, Doris, whose court docs claim she mistreats 3-year-old Kaiser and thus Jenelle has been under CPS investigation for months.
Well, the mom of three has confirmed at least the latter part is accurate…
This whole saga began when Doris filed court papers on September 1 claiming Ensley, Jenelle and David Eason’s 8-month-old daughter, tested positive for THC (found in marijuana) at birth, prompting her to file for emergency custody of her grandson.
As a result of the failed drug test, the Evans/Eason home had reportedly been investigated by Child Protective Services from January until May of this year.
And though up until this point the Read Between the Lines author simply tweeted that “the truth will come out,” she had a case of Twitter word vomit last night, confirming the CPS investigations and more.
She doesn’t admit to ingesting pot while pregnant, but does confirm she’s been under investigation in a series of now-deleted tweets screenshotted by Starcasm.
“‘You aren’t doing good’ well damn for people trying to take my kids away I’m doing a damn good job preventing that,” she begins, first hinting at the allegations.
“Oh let’s not care to mention how you guys call CPS so many times they even have a copy of my book now and love to visit so thanks!”
Uh, we guess she thinks it’s a joke?
The bride-to-be then confirms that the investigations were “case closed every time,” and they only came to visit her home because they were concerned about the “other parent,” aka Nathan.
“Yes, CPS has been here and case closed every time. There’s a lot they are concerned about with the OTHER parent. This is why it was a “race” to court.
“My son was not being treated right on his visits so when I expressed that… we are handling this.”
Starcasm’s source says this “race to court” is in reference to a recent incident in which Kaiser returned from his dad and grandma’s house with a bruised butt.
Jenelle was going to file an abuse claim against Doris, but Doris “beat her to it.”
Of course, the 26-year-old also mentions her mom, Barbara, whom she says is talking to press and badmouthing her daughter because she’s cut her out of her life and needs a “scream and cry for attention.”
She concludes by admitting to her fans she’s “extremely depressed and upset,” and just wants everyone to leave her alone so she can be happy.
As of now, Jenelle and Doris are scheduled to appear in court on October 2, so we guess the bride and groom won’t be going on a honeymoon immediately after their wedding.
Their big day is going down next Saturday, September 23, at their home in North Carolina.
