Jenelle Evans has made a very bold admission.
During an appearance on Vince Russo‘s The Brand podcast, the Teen Mom 2 star confessed that she tested positive for THC after giving birth to her daughter Ensley last year. We’re sure the internet will have something to say about this!!
The MTV celeb shared:
“I’m not going to lie about that. I tested positive for THC and Ensley did not test positive. I did. So CPS were like ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I was in the hospital ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ they said, ├óΓé¼╦£Did you smoke when you were pregnant?’ I said, ├óΓé¼╦£I did within the past 30 days. I said I have really bad esophageal spasms and I throw up every 5 minutes, I can’t even eat.’ And they said, ├óΓé¼╦£Okay, some moms do that. We are not here to judge, we are writing down your information.'”
Understandably, Child Protective Services were informed of the results and sent to do a wellness check on Jenelle. She continued:
“And after I had Ensley they said CPS will just come by to do a [wellness] check since you tested positive. They came and did a [wellness] checkup and everything is fine. They closed the case.”
Well that’s good to hear. Sadly, Evans has a complicated relationship with CPS, as people on the internet have accused her of abuse in the past. The reality TV starlet added:
“CPS has been here like 30 times, not just for that, but for haters online saying that I abuse my kids. So they came and checked up on that… First of all if I were on drugs I wouldn’t be able to sit here in the morning and get the kids ready and eat healthily. Or I’d be losing a lot of weight.”
Intense stuff. Nonetheless, we understand why CPS and others were concerned about Jenelle and little Ensley, as the mother of three previously opened up about her previous struggles with drug addiction in her book, Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom.
