Did MTV send Jenelle Evans to rehab for 30 days?

Jenelle Evans reportedly heads to rehab type facility in Florida

It has been a difficult few years for troubled Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans as she has battled abusive relationships, drug addiction, surrendering custody of her son Jace, multiple arrests, a miscarriage, and an imminent divorce from husband Courtland Rogers. There was even some speculation recently in the media that the 21-year-old’s troubles might lead to MTV canceling the series after the current 4th season. Though there has been no official word on whether or not there will be a Teen Mom 2 Season 5, it does appear as though the network is concerned for Jenelle’s well being.

In a Twitter exchange with husband Courtland Rogers that we shared yesterday, he was talking about Jenelle when he wrote “she is going to rehab …for thirty days lol…u will see…i bet my life on it…”

That claim appears to be backed up by screen caps of an alleged Twitter direct message conversation between Jenelle’s ex (and rumored current love interest) Gary Head and a friend of Gary’s ex Jade. (I know, it’s complicated.) Gary apparently wanted to get back with Jade, but according to Jade’s friend she didn’t want anything to do with him if he was with Jenelle in any capacity.

“I can try,” Jade’s friend wrote in reference to talking to Jade about getting back with Gary, “but she isn’t going to give you any kind of chance when you’re living with JE, ‘dating’ JE and everything else.”

“Well JE is leaving for 30 days,” Gary responded. “That’s up to jade if she wants to come around. U can tell her that.”

“So MTV is making her leave for a month for rehab?” Jade’s friend asks.

“Not rehab. Just a support for this season,” Gary writes. He then adds, “It’s like a paid vacation.”

Alleged Gary Head Facebook conversation in which he says MTV is sending Jenelle Evans to a facility for 30 days

Gary offered up more information on Twitter today, writing to Jenelle, “@PBandJenelley_1 stay strong baby girl. You have to be one of the strongest women I know. You got this.” When someone asked “where’s jenelle?” Gary responded by tweeting, “taking care of herself to become a better person. She’s somewhere in Flordia [sic]”

UPDATE February 25 – Gary went on to say that Jenelle is definitely not currently on drugs, so she’s not getting drug rehab. She reportedly only there to get “emotional support.” Many rehab facilities also offer treatment for mental health issues like depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, which Jenelle has been diagnosed as having. He said the reason MTV sent her away was so she didn’t have to face some of the difficult things that will be aired on Season 4.

Here’s what Gary tweeted Sunday:

“Jenelle is NOT ON DRUGS. She got sent for emotional support because this season was so intense. MTV Does not want her to see this season and then relapse BC of all the stress. But I will say that Jenelle does not do drugs. I won’t allow that and he knows that if she ever goes back to drugs then she can have them. But she won’t have me. I won’t allow it.”

He then said that he smoked marijuana, but views it more of a medication: “I smoke weed. Take it how you want. Some say its drugs, some say weed isn’t a drug. I call it medication

UPDATE February 26 – Radar Online has a source telling them Jenelle is “seeking treatment for her drug addiction issues and related stresses stemming from her tumultuous last few months.” The source says Jenelle’s claims of being clean since finding out she was pregnant are not true. “She has been doing drugs, and she really wants to stop and live a clean life for herself and for her son Jace,” the source says.

The “rehab” stint was seemingly affirmed again by Courtland in his latest Twitter rant earlier today in which he wrote, “so [Jenelle] called me the other day and was like guess what there sending me away i was like wtf u talking about and she told me… she was like and its not gary or my mom..i was like what is it..and she said that MTV was sending her away.”

Courtland then added, “u begged for me to come see u one last time lmfao…said gary waited for u to fall asleep and went out and broke ur heart.” After that he went on an extended tirade accusing Jenelle of all sorts of things, including that she hit him with her car because she thought he cheated on her! (I’ve included all of Courtland’s tweets from today below.)

UPDATE – Courtland has since added, “@gary_head they sent her there so she wasnt around u watching these seasons coming up lol smh they will see”

Meanwhile, all is silent from Jenelle since her tweet and Facebook post last night which read, “Sooo tired just need sleeeeeeep. :(” Courtland responded to the Facebook post by writing, “lmfaoooooooooo” and then, “f**k her lol…she aint even in a drug rehab lol” and “let her lie some more lol.”

So everything seems to point to Jenelle being in some sort of facility in Florida, though not technically a “rehab” facility. I don’t think anyone would argue that this doesn’t seem like a good thing for her right now. It sounds so cliche, but she desperately needs to detox not only from whatever unprescribed substances she may be taking , but from all of the drama in her personal life.

Speaking of drama in her personal life, here are all of Courtland’s tweets, including one in which he says “tell ur boyfriend that i am coming to get my dog tomorrow for the day ;)” which would seem to imply that his multiple-state road trip may be nearing an end. (As you might have guessed, Gary was none too pleased with the tweet, and responded by writing, “@courtyb11 really bitch, you and what army? Suck a d*ck and sit your punk ass down before you get shot down #RobCo. #UKnow”)

Corutland Rogers tweets that MTV is sending Jenelle to rehab like facility for 30 days
  • She will end up dead sooner or later.

  • What I got from this… Is MTV just sending her away to make it look like they’re stepping in and helping her? Is Gary playing Jenelle? And why is anyone reading anything Courtland posts? He seems half retarded.

    • 1GrayGal

      That’s an insult to those who are truly “retarded”. Retardation = mental delay yielding disability. Courtland (and the rest of the Teen Mom crew) aren’t retarded, they are willfully, and shamelessly, ignorant! My son has mental disabilities. Despite this, he has more sense and exudes more class than everyone on that show combined. LOL! #specialneedsmom

  • Jenn

    So is MTV and Dr. Drew trying to cover their owns asses and make it seem like they are doing something before one ends up dead like they have on his other show?

  • :))))))))

    Seriously courtland “the world will feel sorry for her “? Nope, the “world” doesn’t feel sorry for Jenelle. The “world” feel sorry for Jace. Little underage prick on twitter feel sorry for Jenelle.

  • Sweet Venom

    Damn straight it’s like a paid vacation. And I can guarantee it will not work! Remember when Amber went to rehab? Supposedly she had a professional chef available and her trainer flown in. All of that (plus more) and it didn’t work. I always wonder about rehab. Yeah it helps to get the person off the drugs, and in theory the therapy is supposed to work, but really it’s just like taking a vacation. Once you get back to the real world your problems will be there waiting for you.

    • Christina

      I have had a few people in my life struggle with addiction and go into rehab and you’re totally right. Being away at a wonderful facility is great to get off of drugs but if someone really wants to stay clean and sober then essentially have to remove themselves from their old environment and completely change their lives.

      • 1GrayGal

        Exactly! It’s like a dog with fleas. You can treat ’em but if he goes back to the same environment, he’ll come down with the same condition over and over and over. I think JE has substance problems but I kinda forgive that because to me….it seems her core and countless problems stem from her undiagnosed/untreated bipolar disorder, personality disorder, histrionics disorder, etc. Until she is properly treated for her mental health problems, she’ll always be a sucker for losers and lost causes. While this all sucks, Jace is the real victim here. When she decided to become a mommy, she should have left all of this behind. She is forever damaging that poor innocent child. 🙁

    • ME11

      doesn’t matter if it’s a luxury rehab, court ordered facility, psych ward, outpatient weekly therapy… the person has to WANT to change and apply things to their daily life. It’s up to them to WORK at it. Of course it’s easier to stay clean in a luxury rehab than it is when they get back home. But people who WANT TO do it… DO IT. IF Jenelle doesn’t wanna get clean and still in love with her habit then she’ll keep doing it. no matter what kind of “help” comes her way

      • Sweet Venom

        Well no duh lol.

        Oh and for anyone who is interested…I read on Teen Mom Talk that she is NOT going to rehab but is actually going to a mental institution. Not sure how accurate that is because Heather Clouse can be an idiot sometimes.

        • starcasmnet

          According to Gary Head she is not receiving drug rehab treatment, but instead some sort of mental health treatment. This still could be at a “rehab” facility, but according to him she wasn’t on drugs when she went in, so she doesn’t need that type of treatment. He claims MTV sent her there so she wouldn’t have to face what’s on Season 4 of Teen Mom 2 and could have emotional support. The post above is updated with what he said.

  • Sascatchulokino

    RIP Jenelle.

  • tab

    please, for the love of all that’s holy, STOP writing about this girl and the trash she associates herself with. PLEASE!!!!

  • Ashley

    You can’t force someone to get help they don’t want. It’s nice that MTV is stepping in, but she’s been forced to rehab before. She’s been locked up for medical reasons before. Clearly she’s only going to get help when SHE decides to get help.

  • How is he going to get the dog when he is supposed to be 11 states away???

  • Shannon

    How many times has this white trash girl gone to rehab?? Why bother with her. She’s a lost cause.

  • Sassy

    This dude is a maaayjah douche! He tweets every thought in his head?!

  • micro OP

    I give her two years after the show is cancelled before she dies. I want to see an intervention episode for jenelle

  • DeeDeDee

    I don’t think they’re even trying to make it look like she’s getting help. I think they’re trying to lock her up somewhere so that she’ll stay out of trouble and quit being retarded. Everybody is at a point where they’re wanting to stop watching Teen Mom because of the crap this girl keeps getting in to and God forbid their ratings drop.

  • I am all for going to rehab, but if anyone thinks 30 days will do it, they are on something. She needs like a year of rehab. Also it will not do a bit of good until she has the mindset to change and she doesn’t seem to think she has a problem that needs changing. I pray for her, her mom, and her sweet son.


    Can we just acknowledge for a minute how high this guy is? Who the hell does shit like this?

  • Burkey

    Wherever it is she’s being sent won’t change a damn thing unless SHE actually decided to change. And considering they are saying this isn’t really a “rehab”, its even less of a chance of anything good coming out of it. Nothing will change this girl until she finally realizes what she needs to do to get better which I’m not really thinking is the case here. Plus as other people have commented, even if this is 30 days where she can’t do drugs, she can easily come back to her life once the 30 days is over and pick up right where she left off. The girl needs like intensive rehab.. for a year or something. Or as I’ve said a few times, I really think prison would ultimately be her life saver.. being forced into sobriety for an extended period of time and living in an environment where Jenelle doesn’t make the rules.

    • 1GrayGal

      ITA! I think jail is the rock bottom that JE truly needs. It seems to be working wonders for Amber!

  • andiecohenn

    MTV never even helped Amber, they sent her to a rehab & filmed her. If they cared about Amber they would not have filmed her while in Rehab. Once she was out, they could’ve set her up w/ therapy. Gary also, he’s an emotional abuser.But, no MTV wanted to capture “good tv” & let Amber spiral out of control.They need to just cancel Teen Mom already, stop making these girls famous!

    • Fo realz

      Amber made her own choices. They only filmed a small portion of rehab. The majority of it is very intensive and not seen on cameras. They DID set her up with therapy upon her return, she never went! Did you miss that part? It came up may times. They didn’t “let” her do anything. They did a lot of Amber, but they can only do so much. The rest is up to her.

  • aka

    Do any of them have higher than an 8th grade education? It doesn’t seem like it. No wonder they’re all going so far in life.

  • 1GrayGal

    Singing “I believe the children are our future”…….facepalm!

  • amber

    part of me does feel sorry for jenelle. not b/c she got herself into all of this, but b/c she clearly has NO way/IDEA how to get out. the world can be a LONELY, dark place when you cannot trust a single.person in your life. her friends, even the ones NOT on drugs wanna sell her out every chance they have @ a buck – they have no real interest in her being better. both gary AND courtland are idiots – for diff reasons. courtland is just dumb and likely a drug addict while gary is almost worse b/c he shows her real love and yet plays her like a fiddle every chance he gets. on top of all that her mother has no real communication skills AND i truly believe she definitely has a chemical imblanace/mood disorder (be it her bi-polar) that isn’t properly treated. sad that everyone just wants to give up on her — she isn’t in trouble w/ the law, she didn’t HAVE to go to rehab i’m sure, so she likely agreed to it, which even if it was set up by MTV or they essentially blackmailed her contract into going, still says deep down she still wants help/to be saved. if you’ve watched all the shows, she’s a book-smart girl, and she has genuine motherly moments w/ jace. so for that – i hope she does get clean/better and hope she can find REAL friends to support her.

  • Cynn

    I wish she would just disappear. She’s such a mess it’s disgusting. Poor jace would’ve been better off in a loving adoptive home. It’s not like it would make any difference in jenelles life. She doesn’t deserve to be on Teen Mom because she is not a mother in any way to that poor child. She treats him like a pet that she can play with when she’s bored. So sad.
