A Representative of Jenelle Evans Addresses Situation
A representative of the Teen Mom alum denied having any knowledge the MTV personality was being investigated by CPS. They, however, did issue a statement regarding both Jenelle and Jace.
It is standard protocol to evaluate the child’s mental health and this is part of his healing process. He was not harmed, and he did not harm himself. Jenelle and her family are asking for privacy and prayers during this time.”
Sadly, Jenelle Evans’ connection to the Teen Mom franchise and the reality TV world makes it unlikely that she’ll get the “privacy” she has requested during this difficult time. In fact, most fans assume it is only a matter of time before her mother speaks to the press again. As TV Shows Ace reported, Jenelle Evans tried to file a restraining order against her mother to prevent this from happening. The judge, however, shut it down because they believed it was unfounded.
