Jenelle Evans confirms CPS visits, says she is ‘extremely depressed’

Jenelle Evans Ensley and Kaiser CPS tweets

Things seemed to be going so well for Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans as she and fiance David Eason welcomed their daughter Ensley earlier this year and have been making preparations for their wedding later this month. But Jenelle’s issues with her mother, Barbara Evans, and ex, Nathan Griffith, have continued to escalate — with allegations of child abuse, drug use, and more being thrown about not only on social media, but also in the courts. All of it must have been too much for Jenelle, because she seemingly snapped and posted a lengthy tirade of tweets expressing her frustration, before quickly deleting most of them.

All of Jenelle’s deleted tweets are included below, but first, here is a bit of a recap for context:

Nathan Griffith’s mother, Doris Davidson, filed an emergency custody order for her grandson Kaiser on September 1. In the court filing, Doris suggests Kaiser may have been abused by Jenelle and/or Nathan, as evidenced by bruises he received while in their care. In addition, Doris alleges that Jenelle and Nathan have not been taking care of Kaiser’s health after he was prescribed a nebulizer for congestion earlier this year.

Doris also reveals that Jenelle and David’s daughter Ensley tested positive for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, when she was born. That positive test sparked a CPS investigation that lasted for weeks and also saw Jenelle and Nathan test positive for drugs.

Jenelle issued a statement about the abuse allegations, and pointed the finger at her mother as the source of all the problems. “I can tell you that they are allegations, driven by my mom, and [Doris] didn’t get her emergency custody,” Jenelle said. “That speaks for itself.”

Jenelle posted a series of tweets insisting that “the truth will come out” in regards to the allegations made against her and David wy Doris, but she didn’t specify what that truth is. I am assuming this was under the advisement of her attorney.

Usually quiet when it comes to the media, Barbara has since added Radar Online to her speed dial, and she has been VERY vocal about her frustration with Jenelle and disdain for David. “She’s self-centered and selfish, and so is he,” Barbara said this week. “Jenelle does nothing but lie,” she adds. “Everything that you read about her is all lies. I’m sick of her lies. I’m sick of her accusations. She’s so mean. She infuriates me.”

Barbara also talked about Doris’ accusations, and it does appear that the grandparents are on the same team. “Doris is not dropping this. She told me, ‘I’m sick and tired of this. I’m not going to tolerate this. No one is going to abuse my grandchild,’ and I told her, ‘I’m right with you, he’s mine too.’”

Barbara’s most recent public comments were apparently the straw that broke the dam holding Jenelle back on social media because she unloaded with a since deleted Twitter rant expressing her frustration and revealing that she is “extremely depressed” because of everything that is happening. The rant began after Jenelle posted the simple tweet: “Some people hate to see you do good.” The responses were mostly negative, accusing Jenelle of not “doing good” (or not “doing well,” as many clarified).

Here are Jenelle’s responses:

“You aren’t doing good” well damn for people trying to take my kids away I’m doing a damn good job preventing that. ?

Oh let’s not care to mention how you guys call CPS so many times they even have a copy of my book now and love to visit so thanks! ???

Yes, CPS has been here and case closed every time. There’s a lot they are concerned about with the OTHER parent. This is why it was a “race” to court. My son was not being treated right on his visits so when I expressed that… it was a race to court. We are handling this

The best way we can as a family. David is the best thing that’s ever happened to me and my mother can’t seem to get over that… she going to tell you all EVERYTHING she can that’s bad in any way about David to ruin his reputation becuz I completely cut her out so she’s lashing back at me by posting articles and selling stories about her own daughter because it’s a scream and cry for attention but I don’t care. ??

Now she’s going to also bring up evidence of the past that would have been used against me in court and giving all the info to my exs mom. She doesn’t have a damn thing to do with my kids either… she knows nothing about my life and hasn’t visited since MARCH! Doesn’t ask ?

And I will share to all my fans that I’ve been extremely depressed and upset. Please just let me be at this time.

Just let me be happy. ?

Jenelle’s last tweet in the series was a reply to someone who wrote: “David is weird though and seems like he has some issues.” Jenelle responded by asking: “Doesn’t EVERYONE have issues?! ?”

Jenelle would later delete all of the tweets above except for the one in which she reveals she is extremely depressed, and the final reaction tweet about David having issues.

The screen capped receipts:

Jenelle Evans CPS deleted tweets

We spoke with a source close to the situation to get some clarification about what Jenelle means when she says it was “a ‘race’ to court” with Doris. Our source says that Kaiser had bruises on his posterior after returning home from a stay with Doris and Nathan in late July while Jenelle and David were attending a Sam Hunt concert. According to our source, Jenelle called CPS about the marks, and they documented them with photographs. Jenelle was instructed to contact them if anything similar happened again.

Jenelle and Doris got into a heated discussion over the alleged abuse (by both sides) and Jenelle planned to file an official abuse claim, but Doris beat her to it.

Our source also reveals that Doris and Barbara began their bonding while Jenelle and David were in Los Angeles for the MTV Video Music Awards. Since Jenelle was not allowing Barbara to see Kaiser, Doris extended an invitation to Barbara to visit with him while he was in her care.

Since her Twitter outburst, Jenelle has remained quiet on social media. She and Doris are scheduled to appear in court on October 2. Meanwhile, she continues to prepare for her wedding, which will be at her and David’s new home on September 23. I cannot imagine what her stress levels are like right now. I’m guessing the MTV cameras are pretty much going 24/7 right now, so we will all see soon enough.

    I hope the d!ck has been worth it all Jenelle, because everyone knows that has been the only priority in your life next to getting high.

    Stop making stupid people famous!

  • shebee

    Instead of getting on social media lying and fighting with everybody, how about she spends that time actually getting herself together. Jenelle expends a lot if time and energy going to court, arguing, and doing dumb shit in general but refuses to just herself some real help.

    • Flower Gypsy

      she doesn’t have a job so she spends all day/night thinking of drama, creating drama, posting drama, writing drama to other people…it just never ends. The girl is seriously sick.

    • Squirrel22

      All joking aside I think that’s part of the mental illness. You have no insight. This is why CPS really needs to make her get help but it seems time and again they just drop the ball. It’s going to take kaiser getting seriously hurt for them to do something which is really sad. I say kaiser because come on we all can see the hate that both of them have for this sweet little boy because he unfortunately looks just like his daddy. With all the footage MTV has on her I’m truely sad and upset that they don’t step in and make her comply with some kind of therapy or she’s off the show but I know she’s ratings gold when she acts out so this won’t happen anytime soon. I pray that kaiser is removed from the home soon. ???

  • Chewy

    “I’m extremely depressed” and in the same breath “just let me be happy.” She is such a dumb loser

  • sysmjp

    It’s so tragic kids are involved in this. Barbara has it right, all she does is lie. We have seen her lie many times and seen the delusions first hand. She is a delusional liar on drugs with “extreme” mental health issues. I really feel bad for the kids and hope they are saved.

    On a side note, I can’t wait to see this train wreck of a wedding.

    • ameliaBedelia76

      Agree on the extreme mental illness. That’s why i think she abuses scripts

  • DanaD

    “She doesn’t have a damn thing to do with my kids.” Except the one she is raising huh Jenelle? I feel like she gets upset and post this crap expecting people to agree and sympathize with her but when she doesn’t get praise she deletes them. Sad to still be behaving like a teenager at her age.

    • Squirrel22

      She is the biggest piece of ? I have ever seen. She deserves nothing but misery. She deserves David. ???

  • ameliaBedelia76

    oh snaps…the grandma’s are bonding over JE being a crap Mom!! Im sure the stories they could tell would be pretty damning in court. Seeing that Baraba retains full custody of jace.

  • Emma Jean

    This article is confusing. The author mixed up Nathan and David a few times. DAVID and Jenelle tested positive for drugs, not Nathan. Doris alleges in the court documents that DAVID or Jenelle abused Kaiser, not Nathan. Jenelle and DAVID have not been giving Kaiser his nebulizer, not Nathan. I hope Jenelle totally falls apart & loses all 3 of her kids. Then she can have David all to herself.

    • Guest

      Then she’ll just get knocked up again just to spite everyone

      • Squirrel22

        Take that one too. I don’t understand why the baby was not removed when she tested positive for drugs. This is a tragedy in itself. ??‍♀️??

    • Danielle Mc

      It might have been Nathan testing positive too. Doris filed for custody against him as well.

  • theStevieJBus

    Awww Janelle is depressed over this situation 🙁

    Well here’s an idea how about you stop taking drugs while pregnant/around your kids? I’m all for the legalization of marijuana but in no way do I condone behavior like this.

    I also found it hilarious that Janelle said Barbra knows nothing about her kids, has the b!tch forgot that Barbra is raising her oldest?

    CPS please take the Kaiser and the baby away from this nut job

  • Elena

    None of these kids have a chance. The grandparents are no better, Barbara created Jenelle and Ashleigh and Doris created Nathan. Expect a third generation of trailer park antics.

    • FYO

      Barbara has a son as well, and not surprisingly he is also a f-up just like his sisters.

        Doesn’t matter. At a certain age they have to take responsibilities for their own actions.

        • Squirrel22


        • FYO

          Nobody said otherwise so what’s your point?

  • Bebe

    I came back to say I just don’t understand why she continues to have more kids? It’s not said to be cruel, she just cannot handle the level of responsibility that being a parent requires. She gets way too overwhelmed, she lashes out too much… her behavior is downright scary. It really doesn’t get any easier, why hasn’t she realized this?
    Her situation honestly makes me think of the woman who drowned her 6 (I think?) children because she continued having baby after baby while struggling with her mental health. Scary stuff.

    • Flower Gypsy

      I always thought Jenelle was a Casey Anthony-type

  • Kail’s Fake Ass

    Here’s a thought Jenelle: maybe if you would finally get your shit together after having all the resources to do so, and stop being such a shit bag of a mother and person, than maybe you wouldn’t have these types of problems to deal with making you all depressed and whatnot. She spends so much freaking time pretending and trying to make herself look good instead of just actually trying to do well?

  • Reallythough

    She’s just mad because things are coming to light that this happy little life is so damn fake. Perfect mom, perfect man, perfect house, perfect land. Everyone else doesn’t understand. Sure, kid. Time to grow up.

  • DoogieHowser

    I have a really bad feeling about David and her being out there in “the land” I feel like domestic violence against her is coming if not already. I just hope no kids would be there to witness that, especially Jace. That kid doesn’t deserve more trauma.

  • Aussie cathie

    What a dillusional Trollop !! Vagina and drugs take priority over those poor innocent children.

  • bambiglanville

    I am sure this Doris didn’t “beat her to it” Jenelle will do anything to make herself look better. Haven’t we realized this BY NOW?!!?

  • TrueBlue73

    She really is delusional and that’s just how David wants her. Keeping that ‘you and me against the world, babe’ vibe going so that Jenelle only trusts the people HE approves of. Controlling everyone and everything…. all the while living out his Paul Bunyan fantasies with big-boy playthings all on Jenelle’s dime. Just wait till one or both have to venture off “the land” without the other and the jealousy & control issues kick into higher gear! Just saying, eventually, someone’s going to have to leave “the land” and seek gainful employment….

  • FYO

    CPS doesn’t mess around so it’s interesting that they have followed up on numerous claims and paid Jenelle & David’s house a visit a number of times, and have never taken any action against them. It seems there’s an abundance of accusations going in both directions, and no evidence supporting any of it. All these people do is endlessly lie and fight, and they do it publicly. Like I’ve said before, they’re all losers. The entire lot of of them. The last thing those kids need is all this garbage being broadcast to the world, and the antagonistic responses from couch critics. Hopefully a judge will order them all to STFU.

    • Squirrel22

      Ok Jenelle…… ?????

      • FYO

        Your comment, and probably you, are just as dumb as she is.

  • Caty P. :)

    Ok I really do feel bad for CPS workers, the agonizing decisions they have to make, and the shet pay they take home in return. But what does it take to get a child removed from an abusive situation? Aren’t there pictures of bruises and such in this case, in addition to ample testimony? It doesn’t seem unreasonable to give Kaiser to Doris temporarily.
    Ugggh I don’t know. I think I’m biased here anyway because Jenelle seems like a crap parent to me. (An ‘appearances are everything’ type of parent. I was a kid in a situation slightly similar where the appearance was so much better than the reality :/ )

    • FYO

      CPS will show up unannounced, inspect your home, question everyone individually, take photographs, review medical records, and do a complete assessment to determine if 1) there is proof of any mistreatment or neglect, and 2) document all findings. There’s a full written & filed report. If they do find evidence of mistreatment or neglect, they file an order of removal. Once the judge signs off, the child(ren) are taken.

      It doesn’t take much for CPS to file against a parent/guardian so the fact that they’ve done several investigations and have never found anything says there’s a whole lot of lying going on on behalf of the person(s) making the accusations.

      Also, you can bet that if CPS had anything negative in their records, there’s no way a judge would’ve granted Jenelle more visitation, much less unsupervised. If they found Barbara had fallen off the wagon again and her alcoholism endangered Jace, she would be removed as guardian.

      It’s basically just one big pathetic & damaging mess. The best thing that could happen is a judge order everyone to shut up and order strict guidelines for communication/pickups-dropoffs/etc. Then if any of them starts with their crap again, they can be held in contempt and finally face real consequences.

      • Squirrel22

        Ummm the baby tested positive at birth for THC. What I get from that is this piece of ? Jenelle did drugs while she was pregnant. That in itself should be grounds for removal. But what do I know all my kids came out drug free. ???‍♀️

        • FYO

          It’s not that simple. First, she has a legal prescription for medical marijuana. Everyone knows what’s really going on there but legally she’s protected. Second, we don’t know how much was detected. If it were lower levels, it’s completely possible that she was simply around someone who was smoking weed, or entered a room that had lingering weed smoke, but didn’t smoke any herself. That’s why they set minimums that must be met before it’s anything to worry about. That’s simply how it works, like it or not. Remember, you could eat a poppyseed muffin and test positive for opiates so it’s not as black & white as you think.

          CPS knows what they’re doing. They’re in the business of removing kids from danger. They go looking for reasons to take a kid, not the other way around. It would be pretty foolish to disregard their findings over assumptions & hatred for the accused.

          At this point it’s obvious they’re all throwing lies & accusations around like confetti at a party, and in total disregard for the children. I’m sure everyone has sprinkles of truth in what they say but I stand by all of them needing to stfu and bring it down about 1000 notches. Every single one of them needs to grow up and learn to act like an adult for themselves and all those kids who have the misfortune of being related to them.

      To the person who replied: we seem to go through this fairly often, I have you blocked and therefore can’t see or respond to what your reply is. As noted before, if you’re defending Jenelle, it’s pretty obvious where I stand on her. You might do better replying to someone who can / will read your posts.

        I swear people like Jenelle that needs their kids taken don’t get taken away. Like my husband when he was from the ages 5-15 his step father would beat him everyday. He would show up to school with black eyes, purple/black welts on his legs and arms, the teachers didn’t say a word. One day he decided to call the cops himself. The police show up and his step father walks out with a shotgun and tells them to leave the property. They left and my husband almost ended up dead that night from being choked for so long. He called the police a couple years later telling that his step father was abusing him and the police said they couldn’t do anything then he told them that his step father was growing a bunch of pot plants. They showed up 20 minutes later and arrested his step father -_- His piece of sh** mom was there but only cared about her current beau. I hate mothers like Jenelle and my mother in law, women like them should be fixed!
