It’s no secret that 16 and Pregnant’s Nikkole Paulun is total pals with Teen Mom 2 star, Jenelle Evans. As a matter of fact, Nikkole recently posted on Sulia that she and Jenelley had some pretty “high times” together. But now that the Teen Mom has made her feelings about drugs and drug abusers very clear, fans are wondering why then, is she still friends with Jenelle (who’s had problems with substance abuse). Her answer?
“Just bcuz someone does/did drugs doesnt mean you shouldn't be there friend & support them getting better,” Nikkole tweeted on July 2.
As you know, Jenelle was arrested (alongside estranged husband, Courtland Rogers) in April for both heroin possession and simple assault — two very serious charges with jail-time ramifications. Jenelle was supposed to stand before a judge for her drug possession charges on July 1, but the indictment hearing has been postponed until further notice.
If Jenelle is found guilty she can spend up to a maximum of two years in prison — which, of course, will impact her relationship with her 3-year-old son, Jace.
Jenelle has admitted that she did, in fact, get addicted to heroin back in 2012 when she was dating boyfriend, Kieffer Delp, but maintains that she has been clean n’ sober ever since November 2012.
Thank goodness Jenelle has a friend like Nikkole on her side.
Do you think Nikkole should remain friends with Jenelle or should she cut ties? Tell us your thoughts below!
