The relationship tennis match between Kieffer Delp and Gary Head (in which Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans was serving as the ball) is over! The 20-year-old reality star has finally left behind her dueling manjos and has found a new love interest (and roommate!) in the form of Courtland Rogers, a 26-year-old Southport, North Carolina native who has known Jenelle for four years.
The two became more than just friends shortly after Jenelle returned from her ill-fated trip to New Jersey with Kieffer Delp. On September 25 Jenelle tweeted a photo of herself and Courtland in the car together along with the statement, “Mr. Courtland only a friend everyone.” Of course, her clarification did little to stem the rumor tide and she soon took to Sulia to clarify further:
Me and Courtland have known each other for four years. After 2 years of not ever hanging out we decided to yesterday. We are only friends, for now at least….
As it turns out, “for now” is a very short time because three days later she posted:
Courtland and myself have made it official that we are in a relationship now. I’m so excited to start this new chapter in my life. Everyone is going to love him. He is so caring, loyal, and knows how to take care of himself. I have a good feeling about this relationship. :]
UPDATE - Speaking of very short times, Jenelle announced on October 14 that she and Courtland had split. (Click the link for more info)
Yesterday Jenelle went into more detail on her blog, revealing in a post that she and Courtland have been living together for two weeks and are moving into a new home together today! Here’s the entry:
Clearing up Rumorsssssss!
Lately everyone has been wondering “Is Jenelle and Gary going to get back together?!”. NO! He is living his life and I’m living mine. We are both happy with our lives the way they are at the moment, I know for me at least I’m EXTREMELY happy. Gary might of been tweeting things because he might of been jealous in a way that I was dating Courtland but he agrees to stop today.
As for me and Courtland, we are moving out tomorrow into our own house and are very happy about this decision. We are a perfect couple so far I think. We get along great. We haven’t argued yet and have been living together for 2 weeks! He has a job as a roofer and he has his own car. He is a very responsible young man and helps me keep me on the straight and narrow. :] Him and Jace get along fine as well. Jace loves Courtland. He is always asking me when is he able to see him again and when can me, Jace, and Courtland go out to Chuck E Cheese again, lol. He is obsessed with Chuck E Cheese, but I’ve been trying to take him other places so it doesn’t get played out.
My mom approves of Courtland and about us moving in together. She thinks it’s good because she knows how I hate living alone and can’t stand being home alone at night time by myself. It just freaks me out. I don’t like having roommates either so with him moving in it will help me with financially with bills for the house for a change. That’s why I’m falling for him hard, he does everything I ask of him and we help each other out. For once it’s not me putting out ALL the effort in the relationship. :] I’m so proud of myself for not going back to my old ways.
I think I have broken the “Gary/Kieffer” Spell I was under! YES! :]
That sure sounds like a wiser Jenelle heading down a better path. Only time will tell, I suppose.
One things for sure, Jace doesn’t seem to concerned:
Stay tuned for more posts about Jenelle’s new man, including information about his daughter and what he has to say about his criminal past!
