Jenelle Evans Threatens Legal Action Against Her Own Mother
Jenelle Evans and David Eason sure had a busy day yesterday!
Or, to be more accurate, their lawyer had a busy day yesterday — but isn’t that always the case?
Yesterday, several of Jenelle’s fellow Teen Mom 2 cast members hopped on social media to announce that they’d received cease and desist letters from the Easons.
Kailyn Lowry tweeted “How does one get a cease & desist from someone they don’t care to talk about… & if I did, it’s my opinion.”
She added the hashtags “hi Jenelle” and “bye Jenelle,” just so there wouldn’t be any confusion.
Kailyn also pointed out that Jenelle “literally posted my phone number on Twitter last year,” so it’s pretty rich that she’s the one taking legal action.
She didn’t mention this, but it feels important to mention that Jenelle also announced that Kailyn was pregnant with her third child, Lux, before Kailyn herself announced it.
But sure, Jenelle is the one who needs to take legal action here.
Chelsea Houska also got a letter — she tweeted that “I just got a cease and desist from Jenelle and David. So there’s that lolll. #idonteventalkaboutyou.”
When someone asked her what she was supposed to cease and desist from, she said “Making false and defamatory statements. But….? I never did? So? Who knows.”
Like Kailyn, Chelsea also pointed out Jenelle’s hypocrisy with all this — she said that “A few years ago she tweeted that I was on drugs but here we are lol.”
Chelsea’s father, Randy Houska, was the next Teen Mom 2 cast member to get a cease and desist because, as he explained, “Apparently it is libelous to say that people should not fight in front of their children. Not specific people, just people.”
He’s referring to the fight that went down at the last reunion show, the one where Jenelle got into a fight with Nathan Griffith’s girlfriend backstage.
During the fight, many of the kids were around, and Randy did tweet a general statement about how it was not great to behave that way in front of children.
Hilariously, Randy added that he was just disappointed that the letter wasn’t from Dustin, Jenelle’s longtime criminal lawyer and the man who had to break it to her that she couldn’t get out of jail to attend a Kesha concert.
Honestly, who wouldn’t be disappointed at that?
Leah Messer tweeted that she hadn’t gotten a letter yet because she wasn’t home for most of yesterday, but she did say that “I was literally harassed for a week or two via text messages from Jenelle after I was home from the reunion.”
But you know who else did get a letter?
Jenelle’s own mother, Barbara Evans.
Babs made a post on Instagram, seemingly directed towards Chelsea and Kailyn, that said “Well Girls I’m joining the group!!!!!! I also got my Cease and Desist Papers today. From Mr and Mrs Eason.”
And if that wasn’t sad enough, she also gave an interview to Radar Online about the whole sorry situation.
“I got one of the letters in the mail today,” she said — and she also revealed the contents of the letter.
“It comes to our attention that false statements of accusations of drug abuse and child abuse disparaging Mr. and Mrs. Eason’s characters have been made by you,” one part of the letter read.
Another section accused Barbara of “bad language which shows no respect or good will toward the Plaintiff,” meaning Jenelle.
But, as Barbara said, “I don’t say anything that isn’t true.”
“I don’t make up stuff. I think it is comical myself.”
We definitely believe her — throughout Jenelle’s time in the spotlight, Barbara has always seemed very genuine. It’s pretty much her claim to fame.
She’s always tried to stand by her youngest daughter, even when she’s pushed her away.
Even now that Jenelle is refusing to call her “Mom,” and even though she didn’t even invite her to her wedding, she’s still been open about how much she loves her and how she hopes they can repair their relationship.
But since Jenelle and David are taking things to the next level, she has no choice but to protect herself.
Babs said that she took the cease and desist letter to her lawyer, who responded to her with “What is this? Oh my God. They are crazy.”
She also dropped another bombshell — in her frustration with Jenelle’s latest move, Barbara claimed that she smoked marijuana while pregnant with Ensley and with Jace.
“You should not be smoking weed when you’re pregnant,” she said. “She was friggin’ stoned the whole time [she was pregnant with Jace].”
“I don’t care what it is,” she added. “It is illegal. She is irresponsible.”
The issue, Barbara said, is David — she’s claimed time and time again that he’s the worst guy Jenelle has ever been with, and that he’s very controlling.
“It just shows you this totally weird behavior” she said of this new trend of sending cease and desist letters.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, probably until the end of time: poor Barbara.
