Jenelle Evans Suffered a Miscarriage When Ex-Husband Courtland Rogers Physically Abused Her
Jenelle Evans has been pregnant lots of times, but turns out there was one secret pregnancy that went unbeknownst to fans.
In the Teen Mom 2 star’s new book, Read Between the Lines: Diary of a Teenage Mom, she details a gruesome physical altercation with her ex-husband, Courtland Rogers, that resulted in her miscarrying their child.
And you’ve been warned, as the details are horrifying.
The 25-year-old goes into detail in her memoir about the most trying times of her life, including when she almost overdosed on heroin with her ex, Kieffer Delp, a Season 4 scene we’d rather forget.
But as it turns out, a few months later Jenelle reconnected with Courtland while she was detoxing from the hard drug.
According to an excerpt from Read Between the Lines, she had asked Courtland to bring her some weed to help her withdrawals, but he brought heroin instead, resulting in her relapse.
But that’s when things took a turn for the worse.
The two got married after just a few months of dating in December 2012, shortly before she found out she was pregnant with their child.
“He became very verbally abusive,” she writes, according to Radar Online. “His favorite thing to do during arguments was tell me that our child wasn’t his because I was a whore.”
The verbal abuse soon turned physical, and in one particular instance he slapped her in the face and “punched me in the gut.”
“I packed a bag and went to spend the night with my mother,” she continues.
“I woke the next morning to a pool of blood between my legs.
“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.”
A few months later, Jenelle and her addict ex got back together, which eventually led to them both getting arrested for heroin possession and trafficking.
She filed for divorce — though it didn’t become official until early 2014 — and then got that infamous abortion, which was chronicled on the beginning of Teen Mom 2 Season 5.
“I was pregnant, with that crazy, drug-dealing, abusive man’s child,” she writes.
“I decided not to have the baby. Instead, I had an abortion.”
In case you’ve lost count, this means the Myrtle Beach gal has been pregnant at least six times.
She has three children — Jace, Kaiser, and Ensley — plus had one abortion and at least two miscarriages (the second of which she claimed occurred a month before she got pregnant with Ensley in 2016).
But regardless, we’re just happy Jenelle removed herself from an abusive relationship and didn’t bring a child (or two) into such an unstable situation.
