Let June 10, 2014, go down in Teen Mom history as the day Jenelle Evans finally got her divorce from estranged husband Courtland Rogers finalized. That’s right; this pregnant Teen Mom starlet is officially divorced! The news was reported by Teen Mom Truth the morning of, and Jenelle was quick to take to Twitter to confirm the news.
“ITS TRUE!!!!!!!” Jenelle shouted from the internets. She quickly added, “Thanks everyone for the positive vibes! I’m very happy and feel so free now!”
Both Jenelle and Courtland were expected to appear in court on June 10 to discuss the terms of their separation — but wait for it —Courty was a no-show. “Courtland did not appear, waiving any opportunity for spousal support,” Jenelle’s lawyer, Dustin Sullivan, tells Wetpaint Entertainment.
“He currently has a pending order for his arrest with a $70,000 secured bond for failing to appear on a criminal charge last week.” So basically if Courtland appeared in court, he would have been arrested on the spot. Yikes! But because he didn’t, he was automatically denied access to any of Jenelle’s assets.
But wait, there’s more! Teen Mom Truth also learned the judge agreed to Jenelle’s name change request. So say hello to Jenelle Lauren Evans!
The news of Jenelle and Courty’s divorce comes just over a month after Jenelle filed for a divorce after a year of being separated. These former lovebirds got married back in December of 2012, but after they both got arrested for heroin possession, their marriage fell apart. Thanks to North Carolina law, Jenelle and Courtland had to be separated for 12 months before they were allowed to get a divorce.
Jenelle is obviously excited about the news, and she should be! She can finally move on with her life, give birth to baby Kaiser (due June 29), and possibly marry her boyfriend of one year, Nathan Griffith. The question now is, when will Nathan pop the big question?
