'Teen Mom' star Jenelle Evans is turning down offers because she's 'locked in contract' with MTV
Jenelle Evans revealed that her plans to 'do her own thing' have been stalled because of the clauses in her contract with MTV.
'Teen Mom 2' star Jenelle Evans has some serious career plans, and they don't include reality TV shows that brought her the fame she enjoys. She has already threatened to quit 'Teen Mom 2' during the season eight finale on July 30. On Sunday, Jenelle revealed that her plans to 'do her own thing' have been stalled thanks to MTV and their production clauses.
"Have lots of offers from many different people but you have to turn them down when you're locked in a contract," the 26-year-old reality TV mom had tweeted. "Just clarifying rumors." She had even threatened to quit the show if producers wouldn't allow her husband David Eason to appear on it.
"He will film the next season or I'm not doing it," said Jenelle during the finale. "I have people offering me stuff for Netflix and Amazon right now... I will do my own thing."
David's departure from the show happened back in February when he decided to go on a homophobic-tweet rant, something that had gone viral at the time. If Jenelle's words are to be believed, David apparently has no desire to return to the show and be back on camera.
"Idk why everyone keeps saying David is 'demanding MTV' to do anything... I'm the only one talking in this situation," she had tweeted regarding the issue. "David can give a s**t less and hates being on camera." At the same time, her recent social media interaction with a fan of the show reveals that MTV didn't exactly come through for her, which is what resulted in her formal departure from the reality show.
"Are you still locked in a contract even with being off the show now?" @channa_bananas had asked via tweet. To that, Jenelle responded: "Unfortunately, yes. Still butting heads."
Jenelle and David have been married since 2017 and share a one-year-old daughter Ensley. Jenelle's mother Barbara currently has custody of her eldest son Jace who is nine years old. Other than Ensley and Jace, Jenelle is also mother to four-year-old Kaiser, over whom she is in the middle of a custody battle with the father and her ex-fiance Nathan Griffith.
