Jenelle Evans, Teen Mom 2 Star, Enters Rehab While Husband Courtland Rogers Is Arrested for Assault
Jenelle Evans has had a rough couple of months, and now it appears she's facing yet another obstacle. The Teen Mom 2 star is currently in rehab trying to overcome a drug problem, her attorney confirms.
"Jenelle is in a rehabilitation treatment facility in North Carolina to address any addiction issues for drug use," Dustin R. T. Sullivan told E! News on Wednesday, March 6. He did not comment on how long she would be there or what type of drug addiction she was being treated for.
The news adds to what has already been a difficult year for Evans, 21, mom to 3-year-old son Jace. In January, the MTV star suffered a miscarriage, after which she accused her husband, Courtland Rogers, of abandoning her during the crisis and cheating on her. She also later filed assault charges against him.
Rogers is now paying the price for those charges. While his wife is in rehab, the 27-year-old dad -- he has a child from a previous relationship -- is cooling his heels in a Brunswick County detention facility, E! reports. According to law enforcement officials, he was arrested when Pender County Sheriff deputies responded to a disturbance call in Hampstead, N.C. The call "didn't have anything to do with him," Deputy Chester Ward told E!, but officers discovered he had outstanding warrants against him and took him into custody.
"He just happened to be at the residence," Ward added. "We put him in our holding jail and processed him here and Brunswick County picked him up this morning."
Brunswick County Sheriff's Office Public Information officer Emily Flax confirmed to E! that Rogers is in a detention facility. The charges include four counts of assault on a female, as well as two counts of battery on an unborn child.
