'Teen Mom' Jenelle Evans' top controversial moments, from pulling out gun in front of son to twerking at haters
Controversy’s favorite child former ‘Teen Mom’ star Jenelle Evans never ceases to offend people or find herself in some sort of trouble. Evans may no longer be a part of the ‘Teen Mom’ franchise but she sure knows how to still stay in headlines with her over-the-top, shocking shenanigans.
On Wednesday, the reality star left everybody shocked when she clapped back at her haters in the most bizarre manner. The 28-year-old has long been a victim of body-shaming. But Evans seems to have had enough of that now, for she took to her Instagram to make it loud and clear that she has no time for her body-shaming haters by twerking by the poolside in an itsy bikini.
In the video, the reality star can be seen lip-syncing to the song ‘Doin too much’ by Kash Doll while twerking to it. She captioned her video, “When people talk about my weight, I'll just keep on dancing.” Well, we guess that’s one way of shutting down your critics, considering the supportive comments she received for not paying any heed to her critics.
While twerking in her bikini to get back at her haters might not exactly sound controversial, that doesn’t mean that the reality star has never been marred by controversies. Let us take a look at some of the most outrageous scandals she has been involved in.
Evans left everybody gasping in horror when it was revealed that she used drugs during her pregnancy. The former ‘Teen Mom’ star began experimenting with drugs at a very young age, and also got into trouble with the law several times over it. She has been arrested at least ten times in a span of three years over various drug-related charges. Child Protection Services visited Evans, after she gave birth to her third child, due to her history of drug use.
Although she tested positive for THC, the baby’s results came negative. Evans even tried defending her usage of drugs during pregnancy by claiming that it helped her with managing her esophageal spasms.
Drugs and violence usually come hand-in-hand, and it was no different in Evans’s case either. Alongside her several arrests on drug charges, she was also arrested for assault cases. She had a brush with the law when she punched her former best friend’s face for flirting with her boyfriend. Her most recent assault case involves her current husband, David Eason calling 911 for help after the couple got into a fight!
After reading about her drug use and history of violence, one would assume that Evans may stay away from guns, or might not be allowed near the weapon, but sadly, that’s not the case. The 28-year-old managed to secure a spot in everybody’s black book when she pulled a gun while driving. Evans was furious when someone cut her off while she was driving, so in a moment of fury, she immediately pulled out the firearm.
But what makes it scandalous is that her eight-year-old son was seated right next to her while Evans seemed to have been pulling a real-life version of ‘Road Rage’.
While the above instances are definitely controversial, they don’t hold a candle next to this incident which eventually led to MTV firing her from ‘Teen Mom’ franchise. The 28-year-old reality star and her husband, Eason own a puppy named Nuggets. When Nuggets was found dead, many people believed that Eason killed it. Eason later defended his actions by saying that he got rid of the puppy for getting aggressive with their children.
Evans shocked the world, when she chose to stand by her husband’s despicable actions and defended him. The couple lost custody of their children after the incident but eventually got them back. Since then the couple has adopted two new puppies.
